  1. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm looking to upgrade my receiver, $500 is my absolute max but I'd really like to stay closer to $400. Features I definitely want: at least 5.1, airplay compatibility, at least 3 HDMI ins, at least 1 component video in. Nice to have: 7.1 and/or second zone. The two receivers I'm most...
  2. Home Audio Subwoofers
    Q: BIC vs KLIPSCH vs ? Subs < $500 ? So as the subject indicates ... I'm shopping for an economical Sub to augment my Bose 401s (which reach down to about 30Hz, but there's some wavering from 50 to 90). I'm not looking for huge, thudding, thrumming bass. I want tight, accurate, clean low...

    Ok, wanting to build a DIY subwoofer in a small form factor and use a miniDSP to EQ it. I want it to be clean, tight base. Driver needs to be able to play flat to 20hz with eq, output level should be min near 110db or higher. Is this possible with a $500 driver and if so what drivers should I...

  5. Home Theater System Recommendations

  7. General Screen Discussion
    Could someone recommend a economical screen that is between 92" and 100" for the Epson 5020? I'm already going broke finishing my basement. If I need to upgrade later that's fine. I saw the 92" Elite Cinewhite for $258. Is this a decent screen for this price and this projector? Thanks, Scott

    I am looking for a laptop that we can leave at our lake shack so that I don't have to haul mine back and forth. I also stop in there during the week occasionally when I am working that area and it would be nice to have access to a computer. Anyway... I don't want to spend very much. Under...
  9. Home Theater Design and Construction
    ...and what should I buy? I know some folks say they are expensive, but I need to spend this credit nonetheless on something. My house is due to finish construction in March. They've just finished the pre-wiring for 7.1 in a large family/kitchen room area, and 5.1 in a small (13x13) media...

  11. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I'm helping my parents pick out a new stereo setup, and I could use some recommendations. Their needs are pretty simple: - connect with CD player, record player - good sound and build quality (given the price range, of course) - they will just be using 2 floor standing speakers, no particular...

  17. Sealed Subwoofer Build Projects
    I currently have the MFW15 sub and it's working great so far but thinking of replacing it with a sealed sub. The sub is in a dedicated room (17'L x 11'W x 9'H) used for 50/50 movies and music. From my readings, it sounds like sealed sub is ideal for music which I like to try but still like to...
  18. Home Theater System Recommendations
    A very good friend of mine is not an audiophile, nor does he have a desire to build a true home theater. His 20+ year old receiver is behaving badly. He asked for my advice, putting a rather low price point on his purchase. I was able to get him to boost it a bit to $500. He currently has 4...
