    Home Audio Acoustics
    Hello everyone, Long time reader second time poster. My company is considering me for a position in high-end audio sales/support and I'm attempting to sweeten myself up. I'm pretty well involved and educated in the equipment and processes but in terms of the science behind it all I'm lacking...
  2. Entry level panasonic plasma?

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I was kind of curious as what to look into for an entry level plasma. I only have a little 24" Computer monitor for my "TV" at the moment... My friend says panasonic makes some of the best plasma TVs on the market, and pointed me at the TC-P42ST30. Any thoughts/suggestions? Its only $800 bucks...
  3. I need your thoughts on an entry level plasma please.

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Hi All, While browsing at my local Costco today they had a 60" Panasonic TC-60PS34 on sale for $1000 (its $500 off). I currently have a JVC HD61FH97 LCOS rear projection that I purchased in late 2006. Its a good set and still performs well with regular bulb changes. For $1K I couldn't help but...

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Howdy folks, So after a decent amount of research I have decided that I need some advice from the experts. My dad is looking to get his AV set up in his new house and has assigned me with the chore of finding the best products for him (in the entry-level range). I do Hotel AV for a living, but...
  6. Good places for entry level DIY kits?

    DIY Speakers
    I'm new to the arena, but I think I want to try a DIY kit as a present to my girlfriend. She doesn't want me to go too pricey, but I think she'd get a kick out of what <$200 could get her. Parts Express is the only place I know of that's reputable and sells DIY kits. even then, there's not a...
  7. JVC intros new entry level D-ILA projector plus several 3D models

    Even outside of its budget busting $175k 4K projector, even JVC's "consumer" lineup of D-ILA projectors have remained outside the price range of most, but that changes with the DLA-HD250 line (pictured), which brings its LCoS technology home for less than $3,000. It's more typical $5k and up...
  8. Looking for an Entry Level AVR to start my first Home Theater build.

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    So, I've always dreamed of building a Home Theater (I think I came to the right place). I'm a complete tech junky and love to tinker with just about anything. I'm going to be getting married in 2 weeks and my groomsmen just gave me a $320 gift certificate to NewEgg. My Best Man told me that...

  10. First Subwoofer Beyond Entry Level - $3 Rockwood Driver! (Finished)

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    So I finished this build last night. It's a 12" Rockwood XR-1712 subwoofer that I got at the local swapmeet. At 4 ohms and 450 watts rated peak, it has rubber surrounds and a magnet that suggests that I've officially gone past entry level equipment (it even has a rubber magnet boot :bigsmile:)...
  11. Yambeka vs. entry level name brands

    Home Audio Speakers
    Would you go with Yambeka or used "entry" level name brand speakers. Example would be this package I found used: polk R300 fronts, polk Monitor 30 rears, polk CS1 center, and polk psw10)? Any input is welcome!
  12. Let's say you only had $200. Entry level blu-ray or superb upscaling DVD?

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    My screen is a 110" using an Epson 6100 1080p. Onkyo 705 and SVS speakers. No light at all in theater. Right now I have a normal cheapo DVD player. A friend loaned me his PS3 and some blu rays and I was able to switch back and forth from his unit to mine on the same Harry Potter scene...

  16. MIDI or manual entry with 1124P?

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hello all, Received my 1124P today and had a quick question about the MIDI interface. Is this highly recommended, or should I just skip buying the MIDI cable and enter the filter settings manually? If it is recommended, do I have to use the Edirol cable, or will the cheap $14.xx interface...

    CD Players | Turntables
    I'm getting a used turntable in the near future and my receiver lacks a phono stage. Could someone recommend a decent entry level MM phono stage? I'll be getting a Grado Sonata cart which puts out close to 5 mv. My max budget would be $500 but I'd prefer something cheaper. I've heard some...
