#2 – JenPDX’s Geek-Out
Location: Portland, Oregon
A/V or Home Office: Both!
Favorite Source: CNET is where I go to figure out if a product I need has even been invented! About.com can be a useful site – it is where I found out about ORB AUDIO.
What inspired you? Tech gadgets should be useful but hidden. In the living room is a ROKU Soundbridge that streams music from my desktop to the stereo. The speaker are from ORB AUDIO and were selected for their small profile and the great reviews I read. The media cabinet (Soorikian Furniture) houses a receiver, dvd player and a center channel speaker. The cut-outs allow me to use the remote controls through the doors.
I have a small (5×7) room within my 900sf 1-bdrm apartment. It’s a cozy office/library that allows me to geek-out (CPU, scanner, burner, monitor, wifi, printer, phone) without having wires, screens and blinky lights visible from the rest of my home.
Great Tip: Research and measure everything. The perfect product maybe out there – but it has to fit!!!
