New Audio/Video section added

There are only two articles in it, the recent Squeezebox review and one of a Zalman headphone. More will come soon.

The premise is simple: SPCR has spent the last four years showing people that computers can be quiet and even silent, and how to make (or buy) them that way. Now it’s time to look more at what you can do with a quiet or silent computer — other than just working or gaming with it. Audio/video is the natural arena for us to enter, especially given my long interest in music & audio.

The general focus will be on “convergence” audio / video components, the products that are finally bringing the industry’s long-yearned-for dream of a digital home into the practical realm for ordinary consumers. We’ll be looking at more media PCs, both DIY and fully assembled, as well as components such as appropriate speaker systems, amplifiers, etc. We may even get into things like HDTV monitors, and multi-room media distribution systems.

Stay with us, I think it will get even more fun.
