Naim home cinema in a box

by Marc

I like Naim. They’re a uniquely British hi-fi company who insist on doing things their way because they claim it’s better. For example they are one of the few (only?) companies to still use 5 pin DIN connectors for their interconnects because it’s supposed to sound better than the standard phono jack the rest of the world uses. Convenience? Pah! “Whatever it takes to make it sounds good” seems to …

Pepper pad now available in Best Buy

Pepper pad

If there was ever “One gadget to bind them” this might well be it. A tablet PC with a decent screen (8.4″), browser, email client, movie and video players etc plus WiFi, bluetooth AND to top it all an infra red blaster that can be programmed as a learning remote. It looks like it’s got a small but useable keyboard over on the left panel with a number pad on …

Sonos Digital Music System

Sonos Digital Music System

I don’t know a single gadget head that hasn’t got a large collection of online music. The first thing I do when I get a CD (bought or borrowed) is rip it. Gee even my mother has an MP3 player. It’s fine having a large collection of music but if you only ever listen to it out of the tinny speakers that came with your PC then you’re just not …

Xbox media center

XBMC

Forget the usual “Media boxes” made by the likes of Pinnacle, D-link, Linksys etc. They’re not that cheap, they have a very restricted set of connection options (who, in this day and age, connects a TV up with the composite video cable?) and most importantly they don’t play back half the file formats that I have lying around on my system. No, what you need to do is pick up …
