Tom, and Rob are legend!

Tom is a riot. He’s most of the “rant” in AVRant, but we all know his true character. ;) Rob does so much work and it truly shows. The shows are very well prepared, have an excellent flow, and address so many real world solutions. I really love this format, and the chemistry between these two on the podcast. It just works, and works well. Well done guys!

Pitcher vs picture

It’s Not even close. This is the best podcast on the subject of home theater.
If you can get past Tom not being able to say the word picture, it’s a must listen every week 😜

Genuinely Helpful

Are they the best in the industry? Do they have inside knowledge? No but guess what they are still amazing. Great information, two podcasters which makes it easier to listen to. Tom is a little snarky but he means well.

They are human beings so if they mal a mistake let them know and they will address it.

Love you guys!
