    So, what films (DVDs/BDs) do you turn to just for the "Eye Candy" factor? Movies you may not even like, so long as they show off that new display or just WOW you for whatever reason. Here's a few of mine... The Fifth Element What Dreams May Come Ghost in the Shell Coco Aeon Flux A.I. Artificial...

    Hi, I'm new here. Since I don't see a topic like this on the first page, rather than bumping an old thread (if one even exists) I figured I'd just start a new one. I'm a long time gamer going all the way back to the Odyssey. My first actual console was the Atari VCS and I've owned pretty much...
  3. Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    I know there's some good ones out there... but I'm a big fan of fall/winter themed flicks. Movies like Silence of the Lambs and A Few Good Men are good fall ones... How about Thanksgiving-ish movies? Anyone have a favorite? Planes,Trains, and Automobiles?
  4. Two Channel Audio
    I have owned several Turntables over the years. I always like the Oracle turntables, until one day I walked into Keith Yates Audio and saw the Mitchell Gyrodec with a SME arm on it... I was in love with the setup, but it was way beyond my means at $5k plus a cartridge. Fast forward a few years...

    There's a lot of good talent out there promoting their own music via MP3 downloads, CD's, and YouTube videos. Here's WT Feaster, one of my favorite local bands performing live

  11. Audio Processing
    I have a receiver with several different listening options for music and I prefer studio-mix if i want all speakers driven...or stereo (my mains are too small to work well without subs IMO). What is your favorite sound mode for listening to music?
  12. Care Chapel
    Got this from a friend via e-mail, from the movie Out of Africa: "God made the world round so that we can't see too far down the road." Speaks volumes about faith, doesn't it?
  13. AV Home Theater
    For those of us who have A-DSX in either 9.x or 11.x, what are your favorite movies and TV shows - the ones that best show off the advantages of the width and height channels? For me, Avatar really shows the benefits of the extra channels, especially the heights. The air ship flyovers are...

  15. Two Channel Audio
    This may seem to be a simple question (or not), but if you had to have all of your music on one format, what would it be?? Analog (vinyl, reel-to-reel tape etc.), Red Book CD, SA-CD, XR-CD HD-CD, DVD-A...you get the picture. So, what is your favorite format and why??
  16. DIY Speakers
    I need to build some speaker grills to protect my 3-ways that I build recently. My 1yr old has decided that the most appealing thing to do in the house is to scoot at high speed and try to punch the cones of my AE TD12S drivers. So far they've been unscathed. I've thought about this...

    This discussion might already exist. If it does then I apologize. Remembrance day in my mind is a somber, poignant time of reflection and celebration of the sacrifice and dedication of so many service men and women. I tend to think about war movies a little differently this time of year. What...
