While it’s been quiet here the last few days at Diffusion (at michaelsmith.tv), I’m actually working on prepping 4 different posts all at the same time. Â Everything has been in a state of almost being finished, but none of them are done enough to publish the posts. Â Here’s a quick status report of what I’m working on:
- On Monday I got ahold of a Harman/Kardon AVR 254 7.1 home theatre amplifier. Then Wednesday I bought new speakers to go with it. So I haven’t posted on it yet because it’s not fully set up. Â Remounting the new 5.1 speakers is enough of a job but now I also have to find room for the 2 additional ones. Â One of them is requiring me to run a wire under the hardwood floor.
- That has lead to an article about 5.1 and 7.1 but I’m still researching it a bit. It may be folded into the same post as above, but again, still working that out.
- The folks at Paint On Screen liked my bog on screens being overrated so much that they sent me a gallon of their product. Â I’ll be testing it side by side with the white paint I’m already using. Â We’ll be painting half the wall on Saturday, testing Saturday night, and then finishing the job on Sunday. Â Will the $200/gallon paint out perform the $30/gallon paint?
- The new Sony Webbie HD camera – unboxed and reviewed. Â I’ll also be posting some actual .MP4 files so you can see for yourself if it’s good or not. Â Surely it’s worth the low $200 price tag, but check the RSS feed to find out.
