  1. Home Theater Projectors
    Hi lads just a quick video of the magnificent Sony VPL-VW385es 4k Projector in action on my 135" AT cinemascope screen. I was playing Forza 7 on the Xbox One X in 4k 60hz with no HDR. It's a touch slower than my Epson 9300w/ 5040ub on the input lag at 50ms but nothing that stops you from...
  2. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Hello, I'm looking to build a subwoofer that can rumble for movies but also handle music fairly well. I listen to pretty much all types of music. The only size restriction I have is that I would like to be able to fit it inside of my truck bed with a tonneua cover over it. This limits me to...
  3. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    I hesitated putting this in the DIY section since it was all purchased components BUT I did have to turn a screw-driver???... Lol. I am 90% dedicated to games / music and about 10% to movies so material below 30Hz is not too critical in my application so I decided to give myself a $200 budget to...

    Hey all, I have a question for you regarding PS4 gaming and the microphone you use.... I'm an avid gamer and love co-operative online games. The problem I have, is that the "open" mics I've used in the past not only pick up my voice, but the sounds from my speakers too. I've tried using a wired...
  5. HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    It's nearly 2014 and I am still playing on a 32" SD CRT. With my Xbox One arriving this month it's finally time to upgrade. I came here today to get suggestions for a decent 65"+ LCD. It will go in our living room which is not even remotely light controlled and be used by the whole family...

    Question.. I may end up getting two consoles.. Play Station 4 and Xbox One.. I will put each of the game console hdmi to seperate hdmi inputs on the tv. Once connected, would it be better to have those inputs on the tv be "game mode" or "pc mode" or it doesn't matter if your tv has that...
  7. Home Theater Projectors
    I was going to go with the Panasonic AE8000u, but an opportunity to get a 5020ub for a great deal came up and I went with that, as from the reviews I read both projectors seemed to be almost equal. But what I didn't read was the lag time advantage the AE8000u had over the 5020ub. Is it going to...

    How fast is fast enough for online gaming & streaming? So I was just wondering how fast is enough for most in this day and age? My house is wired throughout w/ cat5 and cat6 as well as wifi w/ good enough speed to stream movies in HD while others are doing the same. It hasn't always this way...

    I have been a gamer since the days of Pong, technology sure has changed / advanced. Back in those days I played on a 19" black & white analog TV with the built-in TV speakers. Fast forward to today, we have HD displays, multichannel audio and powerful gaming rigs from PC to consoles. I'm a Xbox...

    mechman suggested I post my system over in this section. I've been getting a bit of help getting the screens sorted out in the DIY Screen section and now it's finally coming together. The PC is just an overclocked Core i5 750 with an XFX 7970 BEDD video card. Previously I was running 3 24" HP...
  12. System Setup and Connection
    Connect it first to my receiver, then to the tv? I plan on getting an Xbox360 & PS3 in the near future. I am not sure if I should run it through my Sony STR-DH810 or connect each console directly to my KDL60-EX720. My thinking says I should connect it directly to the tv so that I don't run...

    Does anyone play multiplayer games/head to head games with a single mate in the same room? I've never done LAN type play, so I'm not sure of the specifics. I volunteer as a big-brother type partner to a kid who really drools when he sees the multiplayer (especially driving-type) games in the...

    I have a Xbox 360, PS3 and a gaming laptop. For the longest time I didn't care to invest in a gaming headset because I love my home theater and I would become annoyed when you have some punk on there (asw good as he/she may be) that would talk and hide behind his gamer tag, but recently a group...

    The “Bad” Evolution of Gaming 08/18/2010 Written by Ray Conley I’m convinced on this – gaming, in its proper noun form, is a species of life. It shows characteristics of evolution and adaptable change, something that only a living thing can achieve. Some games...

    Every HDTV purchase comes with its own set of considerations, and for our friend Philip, the main one is playing videogames. You can keep your THX certifications and internet connected widgets, we need to know what will contribute to the greatest kill/death ratio, period: "I just graduated...
