Home Cinema 1994 - 96

 BootLog.co.uk

Home Cinema was another pioneering magazine aimed at the (then) growing interest in large screen televisions, multi-channel surround sound systems, satellite TV and the newly emerging digital technologies. It was a big fat lump of a magazine, published quarterly and packed to the rafters with drop-dead gorgeous high-quality photographs of high-end equipment and money-no object home cinema setups. 

Home Cinema was noticable less 'teccy' than most of its rivals, which made it quite challenging to write for, but a lot easier for non-geeks to read. My involvent with the magazine lasted on and off for over two years, between 1994 and 1996 an exciting time under the ediitorship of Chris Price, when amplifers and televisions just seemed to be getting bigger and louder..
