  1. Are there any decent low cost receivers with 8 channel analog inputs?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Being that this is my first post, I guess a quick run down of my equipment is necessary. Currently, my PC is the center of my entertainment system. I literally do everything with it; watch TV, DVD, Blu-ray, play games (the original reason for my particular setup), and of course, listen to...

    Chat Box SWAMP
    This will most likely take your breath away. A little over a year ago Felix Baumgartner made history with his record breaking “space jump”, the world’s highest skydive from 127,852ft above ground. This is the full video shot from several GoPro HD cameras strapped to his body and the launch...

  12. Decent Analog>HDMI

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I'm adding a projector, and I'd like to run just 1 HDMI cable. Main input sources are simple (HD A2 and Verizon FIOS -- both via HDMI), but I'd also like to be able to use component (for Gamecube and maybe a WII). I see several receivers with component>HDMI conversion, but on units like the...
  13. Decent, but nothing special

    Home Theater Systems | Equipment
    Compared to what's out there, my stuff would probably be considered entry level, for most of it. The closest thing I have to high end equipment, is my two main speakers. It all sounds great to me, and that's all that counts! :) JVC RX-8020V receiver Allison AL-115 main speakers (I love these)...
