Welcome to the second session in AV Enthusiast’s AV 101 series, What is a Smart Home? We hear the term “smart home” thrown around in the media, in web articles and on the news. It is used when talking about energy efficiency, home automation and convenience. These are all correct, but are only parts of what makes a home “smart” Today we will try and help you understand how all of these things can be combined to offer you a connected home environment that offers convenience, flexibility, and an enhanced lifestyle in an easy to use interface.
Residential Systems Magazine reviews the KEF Q Series Speakers
The folks over at Residential Systems have published a great review of the KEF Q Series floor standing speakers. A small piece of the review:
"Taken as a whole, the KEF Q Series is a bit of a minor miracle, really: an incredibly affordable, high-performance sound system that adapts itself (sonically, at least) to any room."
Make sure to head over and check out the entire article here and if you are interested in any speakers, including KEF, please contact us at AV Enthusiast.

Here at AV Enthusiast, we understand that many of the terms used in the Audio Video industry are confusing and not always very intuitive. Often this can lead to misunderstanding and miscommunication on what your needs and wants for your home can be. As is often said, “Knowledge is power”, so we want to help all of our readers be more knowledgable of A/V terms. This article will be the first in a series that attempt to explain industry terminology in a way that everyone can understand. To help accomplish this, we are proud to bring you our new blog series, AV 101. Today we kick it off with Session 1 - Surround sound vs. Distributed audio.
