How to Setup Your Shiny New Home Theater Receiver in 9 Easy Steps.

So, you got a home theater system? Awesome! Listening to music, playing video games or watching movies on a home theater system can be both magical and exciting. The most important thing when it comes to having a quality home theater is not only spending huge sums on buying it; properly setting it up is just as important. We will provide a step-by-step guide on how to best set up a home theater receiver.

How long will this take?

Actually, it doesn’t require long hours to set up a home theater receiver. To set it up perfectly, you’ll need about an hour in most cases.

What you need to get started

Before we go further, here is a list of what you’ll require

· Speakers

· Speaker wire

· A string or tape to measuring wire runs

· Wire cutters

· Speaker connectors

· HDMI and A/V cables

Planning:

Take note of the parts you will connect to the receiver (such as cable/satellite boxes, gaming consoles, Blu-ray players and Wii). Don’t stress yourself much on where to place your speakers, because receivers come with automatic speaker calibration, making it easier to get the perfect sound even if the speaker is not perfectly placed.

Remote Control Devices – The Logitech Harmony 650 Review

Logitech 650

The latest lines of the Logitech Harmony universal remotes have been much cheaper when compared to its earlier models.

2010 models like the Harmony 300 and Harmony 600 were sold for $50 and $80 respectively, while the Harmony 650 we’re trying to review here was sold for $100.

Apart from the color schemes which are totally different, the Harmony 650 (its gray  colored, but also comes with black buttons), has a similar chassis and button layout like  the latest model Harmony 700 (which is black) and its older model – the Harmony 600  which has a silver color with white buttons.

4K TV Installation with a dash of Apple Mac Pro – Fun Day at Data Wire Solutions

The New Apple Mac Pro is a fantastic tower computer. The unique design makes you stop and stare for a while, it’s lighter then a standard desktop computer, but certainly much more powerful.

It comes with either a quad or a 6 core CPU and its configurable up to 64GB of memory. The basic configuration will run you 2.999$ while the highest configuration is just a little shy of 10.000$ yes that’s 10K, for that much money you could probably setup a small office with 5 Dell Computers and a server, but hey this is the latest and greatest from Apple.

We had our first installation today, our client had a beautiful 4K television and the Mac Pro looked absolutely stunning. Can’t wait to get one for the office but until then check out the pictures from today and some of the latest reviews below. Read more
