Ten Biggest Mistakes of Speaker and Home Theater Shopping
1. You went for an all-inclusive surround sound speaker package from a big brand name manufacturer noted for electronics and TV sets. On the surface, it's not that irrational.

DVI and HDMI Cable Quandry
Cable Quandary: Composite, S-Video, Component Video, DVI, and HDMI Connectors At Axiom we take a rational, scientific and no-nonsense approach to cables in general, speaker cables in particular.

Chasing the Big Picture: Ten Tips to Getting a Big Screen TV
We all want bigger screens for increased impact, because larger TV screens, like high-quality 5.1-channel surround sound systems, pull us into the movie action or TV show's story line just the way big movie theater screens and sound systems do.
