Remember to go to for the real deal!

I really can’t cover a lot of CEDIA content because it’s geared toward businesses and those with (as I unashamedly refer to it) more money than sense. But if anything it gives an indication of where the market might be heading because a lot of the now-expensive technology will eventually come down to reasonable prices. Of course, that won’t stop me from making fun of people with a serious case of the money-based placebo effect when it comes to home theater. Yeah, I’m looking at you boneheads who thought you heard a difference with those $10,000 Monster HDMI cables.
