    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hey fellow shacksters I need to piggy back on this post. I currently have a Onkyo 3008 and an Emotiva XPA-3. I am running 7.2 with GoldenEar speakers. The XPA-3 is running my LRC and the receiver is doing the 4 in-celling speakers. I was at my AV shop where I brought my speakers from and I...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    A couple times recently I have noticed loud noise on all channels after changing sources, noise when loading BD, or no audio after changing source. Turning the receiver on/off has always made the symptoms disappear, for a while at least. So I checked for a firmware update and found a release...

    I just gave a friend a demo of my system, and he asked me to put together some recommendations for his basement. I haven't seen his area yet so I don't have a lot of the specifics, I'm just looking for a general feel for things yet. I'm wondering about a UMC-1 paired with a XPA-5. I have read...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hi, I just noticed an open box Onkyo 3008 receiver on sale on NewEgg.com for $799. I've read positive reviews about refurbs from accessories4less, but noticed NewEgg's return policy on open box items was pretty limited. It even stated that not all the necessary parts would necessarily be...
