  1. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I know this is a topic that has been covered before, but I do not see any discussions in the last 5 years so I am looking for inout based on the what is now available. While I will value all input, I would really love to hear from people who actually own the equipment and have had personal...
  2. DIY Audio
    Right now I have two interests: Balanced Power and Power Conditioning. I've seen tons of posts all over. Even on other forums. What I'd like to do is get some input on starting a DIY project. I understand that not many would want to post build information due to the dangers. However, advice and...
  3. Home Theater Design and Construction
    My new home theater construction is well underway (meaning it’s a huge mess). The heating and air conditioning are being installed and I am not happy with the noise of the moving air I hear when the air conditioning comes on. At my listening position, I measure 55 dB of noise when the air is...
  4. Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hi We can't all afford a couple of grand for a quality "quiet" air conditioning system. So I just wanted to show how I turned a window A/C noise monster into a very quiet unit for my small cottage. All it takes is a bit of sheet metal, a bit of 6" ducking, and lots of duck tape. Total cost...

    I'm looking for suggestions on what power conditioners you would suggest. I'm using 2 Richard Gray Pro400's right now, but would like to add something to the mix. I've read up on the units from Exact Power and Equi Tech, but would like your feedback on what you've tried. What's good, what's...

    This is likely to be a "can of worms" thread. I am sure that there will be many who will read this and say that they know better because they put a line conditioner on their system and immediately saw a big difference. For those people I would suggest you not read further. I do not intend to...

    I've been reading a little bit lately about green homes, and reducing power consumption, etc., and was wondering how much current most gear draws when it is turned off. I know most things still trickle a small flow, and some even have clocks, status LEDs, etc. Does it make sense to have all...
