The once-popular home theater in a box (HTiB) category faded but never completely went away. In April, Pioneer revived the category in its line and now Yamaha is expanding its HTiB offerings with two new 5.1-channel bundles that gives you everything you need except a Blu-ray player (assuming you even want one) .

All good things must come to an end. Once the coolest thing ever, once the “must have” feature of 1989, once the proof that you too were hip, car CD players are now driving down a particularly lonely highway.
