Welcome to the 3rd edition of our Practical HT Guide Update.

During the last few weeks, we were super-busy adding contents and updating our web site. We have decided to put in more effort than usual for the simple reason that In the coming weeks, we will be on holidays - finally!

Basically, we will not be adding any contents to our site till the last week of September. We therefore thought of making up for this short break by building as much content as possible before leaving for our holidays. This also means that we will not be issuing any updates for the month of September while the October issue of the Practical HT guide Update will most probably be published towards the end of the month.

Recent Additions:

As expressed in our last issue, we were working on a totally new section dealing with home theater cables and interconnects. This section is now readily available online.

Further more, we have also re-written and updated the whole Plasma displays section. Originally, our Plasma Television articles were accessible only through the 'Direct-View TV' section. However, many were missing this section completely. We therefore thought of re-writing and updating the contents while making it accessible directly via the navigation bar.


So, here what's new on 'Practical-Home-Theater-Guide.Com' :

In total, there are six articles under this section as follows:

Quality, cable length, and performance implications
