Home Video Asylum

TVs, VCRs, DVD players, Home Theater systems and more.

Remain optimistic...

And acquire the things that matter most to you. I'm hoping you'll have that room again! If that's what you desire, of course.

Yes much like digital precision in music, video now appears to incorporate frequent changes which create obsolescence in current products, think recurring income for manufacturers. Long gone are the days when products stood the test of time. Black and white tv gave way to color both having long runs. Then around 1987 stereo speakers in TV was introduced and it was pretty amazing.

Still analog TV with the vhs era, no fast changes you actually had time to enjoy the technology that justified the expenditures,then came DVD and the digital horizon opened up enormous landscapes, one new feature comes out 720, 1080i,1080p,3d which I like, then 4k, curved screens etc... all Inside a decade?!!

Time to separate the screen from the ever-changing chassis. To some extent taking back control in high quality video playback while retaining upgrade ability of formats in my time of choosing. Much like digital to analogue converters in music playback.

I enjoy the advancements yet still cherish the old black and white mono programs of yesteryear, as well a vinyl record.

Hope all's going well Rod and Thank You for providing such a uniquely wonderful forum. Wishing you Many years of prosperity.
