This $3,000 Bang & Olufsen speaker adjusts its drivers to the shape and size of my living room to ensure rich sound quality — here’s why I recommend it for serious audiophiles

A high-quality speaker should render audio clearly across a full range of frequencies, allow you to customize your experience, and be loud enough to facilitate sufficient “rocking out” volumes.

Whether I’m listening… Read More

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ could flop at the US box office despite reviews calling it the best movie in the franchise in nearly 30 years

“Terminator: Dark Fate” earned $2.35 million at the domestic box office in Thursday previews.
