  1. Two Channel Design and Installation
    A few months after the youngest child moved out during college, my wife suggested we turn his old room into an office for me. In turn, I suggested a 2-channel stereo room instead, paperwork is so 1980's. She is a wonderful lady and got fully on board. Built on a relatively modest budget in a...
  2. Home Theater Design and Construction
    I'm trying to decide which I should spend about $350 on: acoustic treatments or covering the walls in black velvet. Right now, acoustics aren't bad but I'm sure they could be a ton better. Watching dark movies is often irritating because I know my RS20 is capable of getting really dark blacks...

  4. HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I'm looking for recommendation for an HDTV. My son is headed off to college this fall. :yikes: He's living on campus his 1st year. The rooms are 9x12 or 10x14. Not sure of the layout. So the viewing distance could range from 7' to 12'. That's assuming 2' seating distance off of the wall. Here's...

  6. Home Audio Speakers
    The year was 1988, and the original Ensemble were two subs and 2 satellites. I was a poor, married college student who couldn't convince his wife to let him spend $500 on a speaker system. I had burned all my capital on convincing her to let me spend $200 on an entry level NAD receiver, but...

  11. Home Theater Room Photos (Finished Rooms Only)
    Well, since some of you asked (or demanded), I decided to acquiesce, wave the white flag, and take some pictures :surrender:. Again, it's nothing too spectacular, but in the tiny <1,000 cubic foot room, this setup can rock pretty well. Here's the list of gear as shown in this first post...
  12. Home Theater Systems | Equipment
    I'm a live at home college student with my HT setup in my 11x10 bedroom. It's not even close to as impressive as many of the other setups listed, but it's quite enjoyable - and hey, I can always upgrade as I get older :). Screen - Samsung 4042H 40" 720p LCD Receiver - Marantz SR4001 Mains -...
