  1. Kateeva Aims to Make OLED Production Cheaper, Now.

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    Organic Light Omitting Diode (OLED) display technology has been simmering in the background for quite some time. Believe it or not, but nearly seven years have passed since Sony first introduced their ridiculously priced industry-first 24.5-inch OLED display. We’ve since heard near fantasy...
  2. Move over Google Chromecast, there is something cheaper

    Home Theater, Audio and Video News
    I talked the other day about Google's foray into the streaming TV hardware market with its tiny (and cheap) Google Chromecast device. For only $35 you can get this little HDMI connecting dongle-type device that sports a WiFi connection. With it you can stream TV from YouTube, Netflix and the...
  3. Cheaper receiver

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    This time it's for me. Over the last year I migrated my VSX-94TXH from the living room to an exercise room that I put together. Put in some KEF speakers and velodyne sub I had laying around, a cheap LCD/LED TV and voila I have someplace to watch tv while sweating. Not long after I did this...
  4. High power cheaper than DIY

Talked to my dealer where I bought my last screen and found the fabric was more expensive than a model c pulldown. Told dealer this makes no sense since the model...

  6. LG introduces cheaper (but not cheap) LX6500 3DTVs in Korea

    Say hello to LG's new "low cost" option for a 3D LCD TV, the LX6500 series. The term entry level is being tossed around, but at 590 million won ($4,390) for a 55-inch, it's more of a slightly less expensive alternative to the high end 9500 series that started shipping in March. Altogether...
  7. Sanyo PLV-Z4000 3LCD projector gets more colorful, cheaper

    The full list of specs for Sanyo's upcoming PLV-Z4000 3LCD projector are after the break, but there's not much to see if you're familiar with the PLV-Z3000 model from two years ago. An apparently upgraded "TopazReal HD" system promises to reproduce up to 216 billion color combinations, up from a...

    Hello, A friend of mine recommended I post this question here, as he believes the level of knowledge is a little higher than where I originally had it. I am looking for a cheaper amp with a similar spec to the Behringer EP2500 and I think I have found one. The Pyle PZR6XA is available...
