i'm looking to get a subsription to a home theatre magazine. i found Home Theater Magazine, .83 and issue, and Sound & Vision for 1.20 an issue.

can anyone give their experience with either of these or any others. quality of articles, reviews of latest greatest products, and limited number of ads are what i'm looking for.

Those two magazines and Stereophile all do a pretty good job. I'd suggest a visit to your library if they have magazine subscriptions, and look at several issues. You should then be able to get the general flavor of the magazines and be able to choose.


Family Room: Samsung UN60F7100 60" LED 3D TV; Samsung  BD-H5900 3D Blu-Ray DVD player; Yamaha RX-V663 AVR. Paradigm speakers - Focus fronts, CC170 center, PDR-8 subwoofer, Atom surrounds, ADP rear center; TiVo Roamio Plus DVR, Toshiba HD-A3 HD DVD player.
Bedroom: Vizio 42" 3D TV, Pioneer VSX-521-K AVR, Panasonic 3D DVD player, Energy Take Classic 5.1 speakers, Roku 2 XD, TiVo Premiere, Insignia HD radio tuner, Toshiba HD DVD player

I subscribe to both of those magazines and think they are great. With S&V being slightly better than HT. You can usually find a good deal on subscriptions for either on.

I subscribe to S&V, Home Theater, Home Entertainment, and Electronic House. I like them all for different reasons, but S&V and HT are the best.

HERE'S a link for a free subscription to S&V.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.
