This book addresses home theater topics by helping readers economically leverage existing technology investments. Thus, mobile devices, such as iPod Touches, smartphones, tablets, and even personal computers are explained as a way to extend the functionality, convenience, and fun of a home theater. Traditional remote controls and media packaged on shiny silver discs is disappearing. Mobile devices and media streaming are not only supplementing, but replacing legacy devices and services.
It includes an integrated buyer’s guide and is positioned as an easily read and understood tool for the average person to purchase, install, configure, use, and enjoy home theater technology and streaming services in their home. Written in a casual, non-technical tone, the text reads as if the author and reader were having a conversation over a backyard BBQ or advising a family member.
“Curt Robbins’ Home Theater for the Internet Age is packed to the covers with useful, valuable information for anyone who wants to set up a high-quality home theater on a middle-class budget. This highly readable, well-written romp covers everything home theater—from the very basics to components to TVs to streaming audio services. I estimate it will save you about 100 times what you’ll spend on the book itself, so it’s definitely worth the investment. Take advice from this veteran: Curt knows his stuff.”
