Proud to announce my Review of the NEW Martin Logan Illusion ESL-C34A. I have always said the Center speaker is the most important! The majority of a Movie's soundtrack comes from it! READ IT NOW!!!

I want to thank you for reading my site. Without you it would not exist. As the Fall comes I will keep on doing Reviews and Takes of new components. As for now I am working on a CLZ Movie Collection Review. I have tested others and this is by far my favorite way to keep my collection on my Laptop (PC), iPad and Smartphone. READ NOW!!!

Martin Logan's NEW IMPRESSION ESL 11A Floorstanding speaker Review is also pending. Let's combine them with their NEW Illusion Center. Sounds like a plan!!!

A very special thank you goes out to Aimee
at Hollywood Marquees for her patience and 
excellent customer service. About 7 or 8 years ago they helped me with a bunch of custom signs (page 5) and since my divorce I hadn't got around to switching one out with my ex's name on it. I had covered it up. Finally I am happy to report we will have a new sign just in time for our Super Bowl party. Jaclyn's nickname is Jax and what cooler way to get her more involved with my hobby!? Also since the last sign was made I have gained quite the following with my popcorn. Say hello to Aimee HM for me...

The Panasonic DMP-UB900 4K UHD Blu-ray player report is coming very soon. How will it stack up against the Samsung model? How will it look with the Sony VPL-VW5000ES? These questions will be answered soon...
And now it is time for a new screen adventure. Since the Sony 5000ES is
so bright I am trying the acclaimed 
Stewart Studiotek 100. This report will 
be at the bottom of the 5000 Review.

"With an outstanding image and now even more immersive sound there truly is no reason ever to pay for another movie ticket..."
These various Super Hero 3D art lights can be found at Target, Amazon and ebay. Superman and Batman were found at Walmart. 
I would like to thank Linda K. Rodriguez (---- >
our Mom in the back row)
for doing the best she could raising us. Though
ALS may have slowed her
physically her mental toughness was always with her. I pray that I am half as strong as she was. They say after the storms comes the rainbows. I am sure she is resting peacefully in the sun. Though she is gone she will never be forgotten. I love you Mom! Rest in Peace...

Those that love the original Darblet (Review here) will be excited to see the newest version of it in a rack friendly case. The DARBEE DVP-5100CIE features

I am so happy to announce our twin girls arrived healthy. Looks like we will have a couple of new movie buffs added to our household. Let's hope they enjoy popcorn as much as we do. Mila Jean and Raelynn Jo have stolen our hearts already!Sometimes life is like a movie. You never know what twists and turns will come your way. Either way we love them and are very happy to be in this fairytale together!
We would like to ask the readers of my Reviews a favor. If you make purchases from Amazon like we do please log in using any of the links. I have never been paid to post Reviews and always self funded each one. Now more than ever with the Twins arrival it is going to be tougher than ever to be able to afford to. Each purchase made from using the above link will definitely help. With Reviews and the Twins...  : )  : )

                   Thank you for your support. 
In memory of our HONDO who at the young age of 5 left us so suddenly and way to soon. I am sure he is happily howling somewhere pain free. Miss you everyday!!!    2011-2016
