No, the Soundmatters MAINStage
Home-Theater Sound System isn't a full-on, true-surround audio setup.
But it plays one on your TV. We know what you're thinking: one little
box like this, creating a theater-style 3-D soundstage? No way! But Dr.
Godehard Guenther would answer: "Way."
Oh, him? He's the quadruple-Ph.D. genius who walked away from a career at NASA
to boldly go where no audio engineer has gone before. He pioneered
high-end car audio systems with a/d/s, the company he founded - and now
here he is to give your home-theater setup the Dr. Guenther treatment.
Things will be easier for you if you don't try to resist. He has ways
of making you rock.
Even though the MAINStage
is a self-contained unit, with no additional amplifier, speakers, or
sub-woofer required, it manages to conjure rich, detailed
theater-quality sound from within the dark recesses of its enchanted
circuitry. You'll be convinced that Dr. Guenther snuck into your home
and hid a center speaker in the wall behind your couch. We could
explain exactly how it works, but we don't have time right now to
acquire an advanced degree in acoustic engineering. But there's no
mystery to how to use it. Just plug your TV, DVD
player, console game, stereo system, iPod, or laptop into one of the
four inputs. Then wave a magic wand and recite the magic word of your
choice three times (we prefer "alakazam", "om mani padme hum", or
"please"). Poof! It's installed!
We're kicking it
sckraight: this thing's got spatial awareness dripping from every
orifice. We should probably hip you to the nagging little fact that the
MAINStage can't handle a DTS
signal. There, we did. Now the eight of you who care can take your
business elsewhere. When it comes to color, we have both kinds: gray
For today's contemporary modern home-theater
systems of today, there's no better alternative at this price than the
Soundmatters MAINStage...at least until Dr. Guenther designs something better.

When you were a kid, did you ever lay on your back and look up at the ceiling and imagine walking around on it like it was the floor, and the real floor would be like a ceiling with all the furniture hanging down from it, and the ceiling fan would stick up out of the middle of the floor, and you'd have to step over like a three-foot wall to get through the door? Well, we didn't. Weirdo.
This shirt was designed by: Baltimoreanite Katherine Hill, by day a cake-maker seen on the Food network's <a href="http://www.aceofcakestv.com/">Ace of Cakes</a>, by night a human-pyramid-maker in the experimental band or whatever it is known as <a href="http://www.myspace.com/mountainlex">the Lexie Mountain Boys</a>. They're mostly ladies - guess that's part of the whole "experimental" thing.
Wear this shirt: when you do your daily 45-minute hang on your inversion rack.
Don't wear this shirt: to Mogadishu, or Kabul, or Baghdad. In fact, don't go to Mogadishu, or Kabul, or Baghdad at all.
This shirt tells the world: "Hey, who moved the horizon?"
(1) Woot Cellars Polyphemus Sonoma Red Blend 2005 1.5L
Description: (click show to see it)
CRASH! HOWL! SLURP!
An abomination stalks the land, single of eye and sophisticated of
palate! Cower, puny human, before Polyphemus, a cyclopean monstrosity
lurching forth from the bowels of Sonoma County!
Born of a
profane union between Barbera, Syrah, Sangiovese, and Merlot, this
Magnum-sized, vino-crazed behemoth knows but one desire: to destroy! To
destroy your preconceptions about red blends, and stomp the walls of
your sales resistance into dust! Woot Cellars dared to shackle the
beast, but it would not be tamed!
Run, lest its unholy
aromas of raspberry and spice scald your nostrils! Flee, that you may
escape the heavy tread of its bestial blackberry, black pepper, and
anise flavors! When Polyphemus sticks out his pinky to drink, entire
villages are reduced to ruins! Polyphemus is the third offering from
Woot Cellars...will it be your LAST?
