Winegard’s new Elite 7550 antenna brings in stations from more than 70 miles away

When we moved into our house back in 1999, we put up a 30 foot TV antenna tower so we could get the Indianapolis network TV stations for CBS, NBC, ABC, and FOX 50 miles away. That was when we had a 65″ RPTV (rear projection TV) that took up a whole corner of our …

Jabra Elite Sport earbuds review

2016 marked the beginning of the end for many electronic ports that we have all come to know and love. Change is difficult but this consolidation and optimization of ports will ultimately mean thinner, lighter devices. The most controversial loss was Apple’s “brave” iPhone 7/7+ decision to ditch the headphone port that has been with …

Mass Fidelity cuts to the Core with a unique speaker

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 …
