It’s that time of year when our thoughts turn to hidden treasures, and a quick browse through an old Axiom article on DVD Easter Eggs lead me to wonder what was new in the world of secret scenes or other gems (commonly referred to as ‘Easter Eggs’ because you have to hunt for them ) on recently released Blu-rays. Here’s a list of a few – do you have any to add to the collection?
The Hunger Games: On the special features disc, after the Lionsgate logo shows up and there is an animation of The Capitol, you can see various letters lighting up on the banners for each district. They reveal a clue to give you a secret message from Plutarch Heavensbee. Log in

Continuing in our series of videos about subwoofer setup, Axiom Engineer Andrew Welker gives us an idea of what you need to know about subwoofer connections. It can be confusing – XLR, Line Level, RCA . . . what’s the right one to use?
Andrew Welker: Today we’re going to talk a little bit about connecting a subwoofer to a receiver.

You’re not necessarily going to damage anything, but it can cause some startling bangs and noises if things are not right. Log in
