LG E6 OLED Preview

Our favorite TV last year was the LG EG9100 OLED. It has an incredible image that made us sit up and take notice. Despite how wonderful it looks, it has some flaws. It is only 1080p, and it’s curved, it won’t work with a standard VESA wall mount, and there is the shadow-crushing “black flames” […]

Denon AVR-X2200W Review

Every well known receiver company has an offering around $800. I’ve always found this to be a sweet spot for a receiver–you gain a more refined piece than entry level, but at a point that doesn’t sting as much as flagship models.
