With only two weeks until the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, is your home theatre system ready? Is that income tax refund looking for a home? With all the continual improvements in the features and technologies of HDTV’s, the pictures are becoming more stunning. The timing may be just right to upgrade for watching all the action, and hearing it in stunning surround sound. It’s the next best thing to being at the game, and it will make those playoff parties come alive with energy.

That’s really smart!
