Ken C. Pohlmann’s humorous look at the advancement of technology and its potential dangers, including AI and home theater.

IMMERSIVE AUDIO FILE
The making of Mark Knopfler’s One Deep River and classic Dire Straits albums in Atmos, with producer Guy Fletcher..

Sony Pulse Elite Headphones

As much as I love playing video games on my main audio system, I recognize that, unlike music, a video game soundtrack filled with effects and voice chat is not one that a non-gamer will enjoy. So when I dive into a Grand Theft Auto Online session, unless I'm alone, I rely on headphones when using my PlayStation 5. And with its acquisition of Audeze, Sony's PlayStation-branded Pulse Elite headphones promise to do more than just look the part of a gaming headset; they offer planar-magnetic driver technology that for a high-fidelity listening experience.

Making a Big Purchase

I can remember sitting in the hospital room writing that month's edition of this column (called \"The Custom Installer\" at the time) after my daughter, Lauryn, was born in November 2006. Fast-forward 17 years, and now Lauryn is 17 years old, taking college classes, and driving.

I Dream of XGIMI

A SELF-DESCRIBED purveyor of “smart projectors and laser TVs,” mentioned in answer to a man-on-thestreet projector query. Though Internet have done much to espouse Xgimi’s evolutionary stable of products, I am willing to wager that the name still escapes a majority of S&V readers.

Dedicated to Discs

THOUGH THE famous Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) quote, \"The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated,\" has been twisted over time from the original quote, \"The report of my death was an exaggeration,\" both very much apply to the state of physical media today.

Value-Priced Multi-Room Audio

MANY OF us use inexpensive smart speakers throughout our homes to play music and control everything from lights to microwaves and washing machines. Devices like the Amazon Echo are great at controlling smart devices along with other more capable smart speakers and amps, but they don't typically deliver a great listening experience on their own.
