HomeTheater 101: Cables

Posted in FAQs & Guides,Home Theater by Michael Pica on the May 17th, 2007

So: Do you know what ELSE goes into building an awesome home theater experience? (more…)

HomeTheater 101: The Display

Posted in FAQs & Guides,Home Theater by Michael Pica on the May 3rd, 2007

I’m a home theater fanatic, I’ve spent months researching technology and products, and thousands of dollars on equipment to build my home theater. I’m also a gamer so I put a lot of the technology in the context of gaming systems and what home theater tech is useful for the ultimate gaming experience.

Posted in Home Theater,Moding,thoughthead,Xbox 360,Xbox-Scene by Michael Pica on the April 25th, 2007
