  1. New Member Introductions
    hello hello hello I'm glad to be a part of your forums! I'm a 24 year old graduate of THE Ohio State University with a degree in electrical engineering and I'd rather work in the music business than that field ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. I wish I simply decided that before I spent all this money and...
  2. Chat Box SWAMP
    I'm trying to think of websites/forums to post the link to my resume writing businesses website. Since "everyone" needs a resume I feel like I could post it anywhere. The trouble is, I don't want to drop a ton of cash into online ads since when I've done so in the past it's all for not. The ROI...

    I am always looking to further my knowledge in home theater and automation systems. I looked into THX and ISF certifications. I would love to go for them, but I can't afford them at this time. What would be other alternatives? Thank You!

    Got an e-mail for a clearance sale from them. Ok sure, companies do that all the time but these are some serious knock down prices. The MBS-02s, which are the only M-series on their site any more, are $400 instead of $900. Their S-series speakers, also knocked down by 50%ish. Those are, as we...

  15. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I happened upon this today. Samsung is apparently releasing an 7.2-channel A/V receiver capable of passing a 3D video signal. I personally really like the minimalistic design whereas my co-workers find it appalling. It matches the aesthetic of the latest Samsung blu-ray players. Who knows...

I...

    I am needing the full version (not upgrade) of MS Office Small Business 2003. I found it on ebay with 30% cashback netting me a cost of $133 delivered. I wouldn't mind having 2007, but not at the prices I am seeing. Before I pull the plug, I thought maybe I would run it buy some of you guys...
  18. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Is their a business out there that will cut wood for speaker building and ship it to you? It would seem to me that if someone had a CNC router table able to cut 4 x 8 sheets of MDF or Ply they could buy wood at wholesale and cut stock plans for DIY subs, speakers, etc. and also do custom work...
