  1. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I've narrowed my choice for my first AVR to these 3, and I can still buy them new within my price range. Yamaha RX-A740 Denon AVR-X2100 Marantz NR1605 They all have what I need - basic processing, wi-fi, room correction and a reputation for good sound. My front three speakers...
  2. DIY Speakers
    Hi, I’m planning to build an active 3-way speaker system and would be grateful for your views on choices of a good midrange speaker unit. I know there are really good units by Seas, Scanspeak and of course the famous ATC SM75-150, etc. However, I’ve come across a fairly new midrange unit from...

    Question. What are the choices that I have with passive radiators and a tc sounds lms ultra 5400? I would like to use 2 but the price for tc sounds passive radiators are very expensive. I was looking at psi car audio and the usable xmax is 3.5 in. Would 2 be close to over excursion if used...
  4. HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I'm in the market for a 60" HDTV which will be placed in a bright lake-side room with large picture windows that have no blinds/curtains. Typically, in bright rooms, I would lean towards the LED-LCD type. However, I also have need for off-axis flexibility as this TV will sit kitty-corner in...

  7. Home Theater Projectors
    I jumped the gun and started buying equipment for my dedicated basement theater room. The technical info about projectors and screens makes my head spin. Hopefully by giving my room size and my projector and screen info someone can tell me if they are compatible and make any recommendations...
  8. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    HI all, I am having a bit of a dilemma. I have just returned my two Dali Zensor E-12F subs as they had a rattle on both. I have a budget of £800 in total or there abouts. I originally thought about 4 of the SI 18's shipped to the UK but I think this will be way out of my budget (still waiting...
  9. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hello all. I have been searching for months now trying to find the best driver for the money that I can. I have made another post about Dayton subs. The dayton titanic looked like it would be it. Built a sub using one and I really didn't like the sound of it. Coulda been the fact that the box...

  11. Audio Processing
    Hi: I purchased a Behringer 1124p with the idea of using it as a low pass filter. However, it appears that it can't actually cut out frequencies, so much as attenuate the volume level. My circumstance is this: I have an Onkyo 885(b) that does very nicely as a low pass filter to the subs. Bass...

    Hey, I haven't had a video game since the 1980's, and now that I've got a real a/v system, I'm enticed to pick up a PS3 to play with the Mrs. I may look locally for a used PS3 and was wondering if there are any models/versions I should look for (or look away from). Also, are there any...

  16. Home Audio Speakers
    I am planning a "family room" home theater setup, meaning it will function as a family gathering room not a dedicated audio listening room. With that in mind I would like what a good near wall or hung from wall option would be for a full range speaker set. The room is roughly 16'x21' with...

    It's unfortunate that the vast percentage of Americans either are too lazy since it involves some research and setup time, or just aren't aware of the fact there are other alternatives to paying a cable company month after month to 'rent' their DVR. All you are doing is stuffing their pockets...
  18. Home Theater Projectors
    Ok Guys, Im really seriously wanting to upgrade to a 1080p projector. As much as i love ,my Sanyo Z4 I do think its time. I really love the Panasonic AE4000 however the $2000 price tag is far too steep for me, I wish but $1000 is about the best i can do. So my options are to go with another...
  19. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    10 years ago I built a pair of subs using the NHT 1259 drivers in sealed 3 ft^3 enclosures. I have been very happy with these subs. I am thinking of building another pair for a second room in the house. I would use the 1259 again, but it is no longer made, nor is the MAD 1259 version. On paper...
  20. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    As I am giving the entire front stage of my small Home Theater a bit of a 'DIY' revamp, I am also hoping to pay a bit of attention to the bottom end at the same time. For this, I am looking for a pair of 6.5" Mid-Woofers or Sub-Woofers to integrate into the system. I prefer a pair both for...
