  4. Two Channel Audio
    I have a weird problem here. I have Martinlogan Electromotion mains. When I run them in any mode other than stereo direct analog or pcm they are fine. When place in stereodirect the left one is 10 db lower. It does not do this when I run multi channel direct. I have swapped all cables around...

    Ok, so I am settled on where I will layout my home theater in our open floorplan basement. See the layout below: Currently, I have my first row at around 14' (to viewer's head) from the screen. The room is 28' long and at the 14' mark, I have room for a 2nd row on a riser, and a 3rd row...
  6. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I am swimming in PDF literature, trying to understand basic zone functions before purchase of a new a/v receiver. The budget is $1500 +/-, and I've researched Pioneer Elite SC-7*, Yamaha Aventage, Denon X4000, and a few Marantz models. But stumped is me. With the risk of being too vague, I would...

    Hello, I am using two Klipsch Epic CF3 in a treated room (absorbers in the corners, ceiling and the side walls) and two Klipsch THX KW120 subwoofers. The integration of sub and mains (80Hz double bass for stereo and 60Hz sub alone for HT) is good and I love it with both 2Ch and HT. I am using...

    Hi I have recently brought a calibrated Mic and measured my room which has the mains and sub EQ with a Tag Mclaren processor. Both of the measurements are averages of three positions across the listening position. I would appreciate any feedback please?
  9. DIY Repair and Maintenance
    I have a Toshiba 65H82 which started getting wavy when cold. This progressed until the image was not viewable. There was an image, just too distorted to watch. BACKGROUND With some searching, I found the Hyper Board was a likely source of the problem. I removed the board and sent to an eBay...

  11. Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have an Onkyo tx-nr616. I am trying to send an audio signal to a power amp for the rest of the house. The onkyo will not link the volume of zone 2 to the main volume and it will continue to play another input after the main input has changed. This amp is disappointing. The hdmi out to the tv...

    Looking to upgrade my current front main speakers. Over the past few months I've built a few DIY subs and all completely overpower my current mains all be it not a hard thing to do as they are paradigm mini monitors. So I am looking at doing a kit or DIY front stage that will supply me with...
  14. Hitachi
    I have a Hitachi 53UWX10BA which I got used. The previous owner said "when we turn it on, sometimes there is no picture but other times there is a picture. When it comes on, it looks great." I took it home and see two problems. 1. The convergence needs to be adjusted. I assume it could be out...

  16. RCA
    I have had this L32WD12 laying around for quit awhile now and finally found the board I was needing. The old board would tweak out when connected HDMI, so I took the TV apart and found that the board was covered in electronic blood as I would call it. Something popped, couldn't really tell what...

    The THX electronic XO's settings that have been widely adopted set up for a 24 dB/LR4 acoustic alignment of sealed mains and subs at the XO frequency, but that is rarely the case in practice. I am ready to purchase a pair of ported speakers that begin to roll off around 80 Hz, the CHT SHO-10...
  20. Home Audio Speakers
    Over the years, I have explored the idea of using active crossovers and dedicated amplifiers for each driver on main speakers. I know that there are many discussions on this topic in other forums already but I wanted to get some opinions here.. There are certainly several ways that one could...
