I love movies always have always will

I listen to alot of podcasts and I have loved home theater since my days as a college student at WVU when I bought my first surround system in around 1994. I used that system incorrectly for years. I had my surround speakers on top of my mains I knew no better. But I still had best system of all my friends. About 1999 I added a Velondyne CHT-12 which is stll my sub today. The reason I am telling you this is that there are landmarks in our home theater journey. Since then I have added atmos but before that I have purchased thousands of dvds and blu rays 4k etc. This podcast does the great service of getting those discs of your shelf. Other really fun home theater podcasts talk about systems setups and problems you may never have but this podcast is all about getting those discs of your shelf. Often I was paralyzed by choice of what to watch since I started listening to this podcast my 3-d and 4K viewing has skyrocketed along with my enjoyment of Home Theater.

Thanks DJ

DJ knows his stuff

DJ is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about all things home theatre, and he not only loves geeking out about it, but he’s very more than happy to discuss with you on Twitter. If you’re a home theatre novice or a junkie, this podcast is for you.

Listen at your own risk

It’s like listening to paint dry in Dolby digital.
