Have DISH, will travel

Don’t tell my better half, but I have a secret dream to sell everything we own, buy an RV, and travel around the country like nomads. It will probably never happen, but if it did, we would need a way to watch TV while we travel because we love watching all of our favorite shows… Read More

Do you want to upgrade your home theater to a 4K TV, but don’t want to pay the price for all those extra pixels? The Hisense 65″ H8 series 4K smart TV is priced less than $900 which may cause some people to not take it seriously. Take it from me, it’s a really nice alternative… Read More

We all know the logic: the larger the speaker, the better the bass. With headphones, this means that over-the-ear units are going to sound better than similar quality on-ear or earbud units. So I was really excited when I was offered the SoundMagic BT100s to test. Note: Photos may be tapped or clicked for a… Read More

Keeping up with your favorite TV series can get expensive when you are tied to providers like cable and satellite companies. The only option in my area is DirecTV or Dish. I’ve been with DirecTV for over 20 years and am happy with their service and content, but not the monthly bill. Ouch! A few… Read More

Welcome to the next chapter in my ongoing quest to find a pair of Bluetooth headphones that I can use while working out. I’ve tried a few pairs of wired Bluetooth earbuds with limited success, but for a while now, I’ve had my eye on the latest version, the completely wireless style. The QCY Q29… Read More

When listening to music or watching a movie on a device, I crave great sound and comfort out of my headphones. Since these two criteria are often quite subjective, it would seem that what works for one person, may not for another which seems to be the challenge of producing headphones that are within a… Read More

When I reviewed the Mass Fidelity Relay Bluetooth digital audio converter, I was struck how well made and solid the DAC is, as well as how it makes life easier dealing with my older stereo equipment. However, the Relay is a niche product that will not be useful to everyone. Not so with the new… Read More

Audioengine has created some outstanding and affordable speakers along with other audio components over the last 10 years. Their A5+ is a killer speaker that sounds terrific and packs a powerful punch. It was their top-of-the-line speaker—until now. Just in time for the holidays, Audioengine has released the HD6 speaker—a new concept in both sound… Read More

Being a writer for The Gadgeteer has given me the opportunity to try new and interesting things. Having said that, I find myself often volunteering to review headphones, more precisely Bluetooth headphones. Now to this point, I have previously reviewed two sets of Bluetooth headphones, so when Polk offered us a chance to review their new… Read More

I consider myself an average person with an average budget for headphones (around $60 or less) and I’ve been fairly happy with my purchases. I’ve shied away from trying out more expensive ones in the stores because I haven’t been prepared to spend premium dollars on them and I didn’t want to spoil my blissful… Read More

Minimalists will love this product because it’s a mirror that conceals a big screen TV. Use it as a mirror by day and at night it becomes a TV. The TV Mirror mounts over your existing TV and uses beamsplitter TV mirror technology to turn the black screen of your powered off TV into a… Read More

When I’m considering a new pair of earphones, I usually skip the in-ear variety because they seem to always fall out of my ears and I don’t like the noise isolation feature that they usually possess. When Moshi Audio approached me to ask if I would be interested in reviewing their Clarus earphones, their ear loop… Read More

We cut cable a long time ago and opted for over-the-air (OTA) channels using antennas. Back in the day, we also bought DVD recorders to record our favorite shows but had problems with ALL of them, and never got around to replacing them. Most of the time I’m at home when my shows are on… Read More

I am what many people would call, a “cord-cutter”.  In my living space I don’t subscribe to cable, and generally watch my TV online with services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Youtube.  A few years ago I lived in England and loved watching BBC iPlayer, but now that I live back in the US, I… Read More
