  1. What is Multi-Channel Audio?

    It may sound confusing, but the concept is pretty simple and the results are fantastic. To explain multi-channel audio, we need to travel back in time a bit to when for many of us the two-channel stereo system was the best music source in the house. It gave us the basic left and right speaker and we thought it sounded awesome, and for the most part it did its’ job well. If we had a party, we’d unplug it, pick it up and plonk it on a dining table or somewhere near where the guests were congregating so we could point the speakers within earshot. Simple two channel stereos are still around, and are pretty common in bedrooms, kitchens, garages or any place you are looking for a more portable solution. Often these units are dual purpose as mp3/iPod docks and chargers, which can make them convenient. Multi-Channel Surround Sound is a completely different experience.

  4. Reducing Cable Clutter

    Reducing Cable Clutter

    Despite living in an increasingly wireless world, many of our devices still have cables, and lots of them. I don’t think there is a one size fits all solution for everyone, but surely we can do a better job than most of us are doing at the moment.

    Not only is “cable management” important from a visual perspective, but being more organised with your cables can help safety around your home or business and can save you time too!

  5. How does Infra-red work?

    How does Infra-red work?

    Sometimes we take for granted that things “just work”. The technology is there, and you don’t care how it works. Sometimes curiosity gets the better of us, and we want to know “How” or “Why?” You may be familiar with scientific and medical applications, as well as the use of infrared in night vision goggles. We thought it was time for a simple explanation of “Infrared” technology, and how it’s alive in your home.

  6. Benefits of Noise-Cancelling Headphones

    Have you ever found yourself turning your music up really loud because even though you’re wearing headphones, the ambient noise around you keeps drowning out your tunes? It’s especially annoying when you’re in an environment such as a plane or a train because there is no escape from the volume of the engines or the people around you. Even though you have your ears completely covered and some noise is reduced, the ambient noise still permeates. That’s where noise-cancelling headphones can help you still enjoy your music even in these difficult and noisy environments. Noise-cancelling headphones are made as either active or passive.

  10. Explaining 4k

    It’s hard enough squinting to try and see the difference between 20 different models and sizes of televisions in the store, deciding which one you should buy, and how long it will be until it is superseded by the next model or big jump in technology. Now there’s a new (or not so new, really) term that has been injected into our technological vernacular more and more. “It’s 4k”. So what! What is 4k anyway, and what’s so good about it?
