About TV/Video: Eleven Months and Counting

In the Spotlight | More Topics |
  from Matthew Torres
The digital transition in the United States is set to take place in eleven months, February 19, 2009. This means that all analog broadcasts from full power TV stations will cease. Don't worry though. If you own an analog television and use an antenna you can get a digital-to-analog converter box and continue watching TV in analog. You won't need to buy a digital TV just yet.

About Womens Issues: Spitzer Scandal Sparks Debate Over Prostitution

About.com   Womens Issues
In the Spotlight | More Topics |
  from Linda Lowen
Nearly as old as the 'world's oldest profession' is the argument that women willingly 'choose' to become sex workers, and that legalizing prostitution would empower women. The act isn't simply about sex. It's about having total control over another human being. When someone says, "It's a victimless crime, and I have no problem legalizing prostitution," I always ask, "So if your mother, sister, wife or daughter worked as a prostitute, that'd be okay?" (You can guess the answer.)

Check out my list of high end home theater receiver favorites in the $1300 and Up price range.

1) Denon AVR-5308CI 7.1 Home Theater Receiver with Networking and Wi-Fi
If you are looking for the ultimate home theater receiver and cost is no object, then consider the THX Ultra 2 Certified Denon AVR-5308CI. This unit weighs in at 62 pounds and has 7 internal amplifiers with 150WPC at .05% THD (Total Harmonic Distortion). The 5308 features extensive surround decoding options, including the Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD formats incorporated into many Blu-ray and HD-DVD discs. In addition to impressive audio, the AVR-5308 has audio/video switching with analog to HDMI conversion and 1080p upscaling, 1080p compatible HDMI inputs, and built-in network and wi-fi connectivity.

3) Harman Kardon AVR-745 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver
The Harman Kardon AVR-745 offers everything most will need in a home theater receiver. The AVR-745 delivers 85WPC across 7 channels. This may seem like a modest output, HK uses high current amplifiers that can stand up to other "more powerful" amplifiers in other manufacturer's receivers. In addition to great audio, the AVR-745 also offers video HDMI video switching and analog to HDMI video upconversion of all video signals via built-in Faroudja video processing. Add XM Satellite Radio (subscription required) and USB connectivity, the AVR-745 is definitely a receiver to consider for a high-end home theater system.
