Re: Finished My Upgrades to our living room/home theater

That rack looks beautiful with all that Macintosh gear. Good choice of speakers too.
One thing you need is a much larger screen :D

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Yesterday I watched Citizen X. It's a movie made in '95 by HBO about the serial killer of the 80s and early 90s in the city of Rostov in Russia. It's a low budget film, but the acting and the story...

Re: How do you organize your movie collection?

I use XBMC (now called Kodi) in my HTPC. For tablets, I use Plex and Mediabrowser. I have all 3 softwares list the movies alphabetically. To me it's easier having them alphabetically than by genre.

Re: Dynaudio X34 or X38 for small condo HT

It sounds like you have done your home work and are in the right path.
I don't know what I would choose between the Excite and Aria. I haven't listened to any of the two.

Re: Dynaudio X34 or X38 for small condo HT

Have you considered any other choices besides the two?

In my opinion, with the DM and Excite series you are paying for the Dynaudio name. You can do better for the money than the Excites.

I had...

Re: Sony Releases Its New ES Z AVR Lineup

Why do they have to make them so ugly looking? They have't made a good looking receiver in years.
Is Sony still using digital amps in its ES receivers?

I watched Winter's Tale last night with the wife. I wish I could get those two hours back. Even wife agreed that it is a weak movie.
I will never know how the director thought it was a good idea to...

Re: Assigning Zone2 Issue

This picture is from another Marantz receiver but your 1604 should be similar.

Re: Assigning Zone2 Issue

You can't have 5.1 in main zone and 2.0 in second zone from the same source. I believe with Denon and Marantz receivers, you can do All Zone stereo from the same source.

Re: Does anyone know of a Blu-ray player with MKV streaming from PC?

Not really true. His card already has HDMI and can pass through lossless HD audio. Even my lowly GT610 can do that.

Re: Denon AVR4520CI at BB for $1500

Great receiver but it's over 2 years old. It should be less than $1500. At $1000 it would be a good buy.

You can certainly go with a small PC like the Intel NUC or a Gigabyte Brix but they can get costly after you install RAM, a hard drive, and especially if you want to run Windows (new windows licence...

Re: I'm getting so obsessed with my home theater that I'm thinking about upgrading my receiver after 6 months.

Is the MCACC the same on all Pioneer receivers or is it like Audyssey where you have different levels at different price points?
If MCACC is the same on all models then I would keep the Pioneer...

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched 'Joe' and 'Lone Survivor' last weekend.
Joe was too dark and depressing for me. I am not sure it is a true representation of rural America but then again, it's a movie. I'd give it 5/10

Re: Home theatre planning 5.1 or 7.1

6m is roughly 20ft. Perfect candidate for a 7.1 system. Go for it.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

Charlie Wilson's War. I know it's older (2007) movie but I hadn't seen it until yesterday.
Good acting and a decent story. I like that they kept it short and to the point.

If you are not going to do any video transcoding then either CPU will do the job for HD playback. Example of transcoding is when you use the Plex media server on your PC and want to stream your...

Re: Flac vs Mp3 Quality

ALAC has been open source since 2011. And believe it or not, even Windows Media Player can play ALAC files.
