    Hi everyone. Just in the process of making some decisions about setting up a theater in my basement and I thought this might be a good place to consult. Hopefully I'll be able to pick your collective brains on a few subjects.

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and it is usually -40 (that is where Celsius meets Fahrenheit) this time of year so there is lots of opportunity to get caught up on reading/intranet/audio/software. I am interested in getting to know REW to tune my studio and also possibly for PA tuning (I am a weekend...

    Thought I would say Hey. Used to be a member 10 years ago when I was very in to home Theater. Life kinda go in the way but I'm back! Still using the same equipment but in a smaller room.

    So what single piece of gear can you never imagine parting with? Perhaps a purchase that has proven to be so awesome that you would be unlikely to take more than what you paid for it. Perhaps you consider it the best quality youve ever owned, maybe the most handy and most often used, maybe it...

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Sony pictures has released a very interesting thematic double bill about the author, Truman Capote. I screened "In Cold Blood" first so I'll review that one here. I saw "Capote" in it's standard edition a while ago so I'll have to re-screen it on Blu Ray to see how it holds up and compares to...

    Home Theater Design and Construction

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I have an old laptop that I want to use in my minivan to play mp3's and with winter just around the corner what effect can the cold have on using the laptop in -25 degrees C. Can the LCD/hard drive function in that kind of cold.
