HBO's "Game of Thrones" is typical: "low volume level dialogue, punctuated by a quick edit to a battle scene for example, where the volume level is so loud, I frantically look around for the remote to turn the volume down." Don't sweat it, James. Dynamic Compression can fix this! Bass Trap. What is it? And how can it improve a home theatre setup?

Ever wish for a tablet stand that's easy to carry with you and can even slip into your pocket? We got our hands on a 3D-printed prototype of the Plinth, now on Kickstarter, and it looks like it might just be the solution to that particular problem. It folds down flat and at the touch of a button (one-handed operation!) it can go to one of three different viewing angles. The backing level on Kickstarter that will put one of these in your hands is £18 (about $30 USD). http://kck.st/1coiW57

We love sit-stand desks at the Geek House, so when we had a chance to try out the Jarvis Desk from Ergo Depot we were all over it. The Jarvis Desk is a heavy duty desk that will hold (and lift) up to 350 pounds. The control panel allows you to program up to four preset heights, and the height range is between 25.5 inches and 51 inches, with a movement speed of 1.5 inches per second. If you're thinking about a sit stand desk you should definitely take a look at the Jarvis Desk.
