    Well, looks like my Onkyo 809 has developed the dreaded HDMI failure. Went to fire it up and zero audio. I haven't done the reset as of yet but looks like I'll be in the market for a new AVR.
  3. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I woke up on the couch in the early morning and smelled burnt electrical. I went around the room and tried to locate its source to no avail. When I turned on my Hardon Kardon AVR 8000 today it just flashes the display then turns itself back off, then I smell that burnt electrical odor again...
  4. Home Theater Projectors
    I just started looking for a replacement bulb for my 8350 and I am seeing bulbs all over the place ranging from $40 to $250. I'm assuming some are not the factory units and different brand. Anyone try the cheaper bulbs? I don't wanna do this twice so if I have to I'll buy the factory bulb.
  5. REW Forum
    Hi, After spending hours reading through many threads on this forum, I decided to give it a try with REW, hoping to somehow improve the sound in my theater. I just got my Umik-1 from Cross-Spectrum and played with it last night. I followed the instruction from minidsp on using the Umik-1 and...
  6. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    My MFW-15 sub amp died. I tried to fix the amp & it didn't work. I am looking for a cost effective way to get the sub working again. I see there is a turbo kit (upgraded amp & driver for $800) but that is way to much for me. I was thinking of getting the inuke 1000 dsp amp. Should I upgrade...

    My NAD T773 AV processor/amp has passed. :eek: This unit had given me trouble some time ago but seemed to have stopped but the other day it finally quit for good. Still looking at new ARCAM AVR 400. What's your thoughts on this AV amp?

    40 days. That's how long I've had my Onkyo TX-NR709 from Accessories4Less.com. Today I was watching Metallica The Big Four Bluray when the receiver turned off by itself. When I turned it back on I saw a big spark and heard a pop. Then smoke started rising from my 40 day old receiver. Needless...

  11. Home Theater Projectors
    After 3 years it's finally given up the ghost to the dreaded bad DMD panel. Half the screen is black and white vertical lines. I'm pretty disappointed that this unit, even though it is a refurb, lasted a little over 3 years only. My original projector, a Mitsubishi HC3000, is still going...

    My Monster Power Center 3600 mkII died a sudden death this morning. Since spending $$$ on that unit I have retired and cannot afford a comparable replacement. I am considering just a good surge protector such as this Belkin from Home Depot -...

    A few weeks ago I pulled out my Grado HF-1 headphones which had been tucked away in storage for a few years. I connected my headphone amp to the front channel analog outputs of my Oppo 970 and eagerly sat down to get reacquainted with headphone audio. "Hmmm, that's not right..." I was getting...
