  7. Sonos For Music? Nope But Here's A Better Idea

    Sonos For Music? Nope But Here's A Better Idea

Moved in, unpacked boxes, mounted the TV on the wall, added a DISH, and hopped on the couch prepared for TV magic. But there was a problem. Hardwood floors, a cathedral ceiling, and BIG windows created an echo chamber. I couldn't hear my Sony Bravia...

    Chord Hugo M Scaler Review - Eureka I Can Hear

    Chord Hugo M Scaler Initial Review. Soon I'll hit the big 50. I don't feel like a "fifty-year-old," but there are signs. A year ago my vision dived over a cliff. An optician confirmed the dive.

    Focal Elegia Headphones Review

    Elegia Headphones Review - Photo's don't do the Focal Elegia headphone justice. Their look and feel, something I love, is impossible to convey in a photograph. You experience Focal's new closed-back headphones value once you live and breathe with them. Once you've listened to them for long sessions over several days as I did, their outstanding performance in several areas is clear...
