Podcast #431: Quartics, Insteon, X10, ZigBee and Z-Wave

Podcast #428: Aperion Audio SLIMstage30 by Soundmatters

The HT Guys love simplicity and sound bars are exactly that, simple to setup and use. Today we take a look at a new entrant into the field, the Aperion Audio SLIMstage 30 (Street Price $799). Sound bars are great solutions for small rooms, bedrooms, or dens. The SLIMstage 30 is sleek, compact, and when using the Bravus 8A subwoofer, a powerful sound system.

Each version comes with mounting brackets in case you want to attach the sound bar to the wall just below or above your flat panel TV.
