  1. Does size really matter?

    Home Audio Speakers
    First of all...don't ask my wife this question! Growing up in the 60's and mid 70's, and being a musician with exposer to live music daily in school (Concert Band / Jazz Band), it was my opinion that bigger was always better in audio-stereo speaker selection. A good friend even built a pair of...

  4. CD vs LP doesn't matter because I hear up to 50kHz!

    CD-BD-DVD Music | Vinyl Records
    Well, I can't really hear those high frequencies--but I can perceive them. Everyone can! People argue about CD this vs. LP that all the time when they should really be arguing about the best way to capture and reproduce harmonics. Why? Because harmonics are one of the details where music...

  6. Does paint color even matter?

    DIY Screens
    I was off over Christmas and was playing around. I have a Theater Room with dark colors. I have a 159" Dalite High power Scope screen. I have a Sony VPL 40 with a lens. The image is bright and beautiful. If I put a piece of printer paper on the screen it looks like a very dull area. I also have...
  7. Subwoofers... Does Placement Matter Below Room Mode Frequencies??

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    I'm planning to do a multi-subwoofer IB install. Unless my calculations are incorrect, I believe all room modes will be below 50Hz or so. The room dimensions are 15.5x24x9 feet. However, the long side is cut to about 20 feet due to the stairwell and the only 24 feet long area is a 4x4 foot area...

  9. How much does the Watts matter?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Is the Watts super important in a Receiver? I read someone say it isn't as important in speakers and it was a marketing thing. What about receivers? If it does what is a good "amount" of watts? Thanks.

  11. Does Filter Channel on BFD 1100 really matter

    REW Forum
    Hi. I am now getting ready to install my filters to the 1100P. I am a little confused as to what channel I am to install the filters on. Does it matter which channel they are installed on? I just noticed that I am coming out of my xeny502 on the L channel CD/Tape RCA outs but running to R...

  13. Why Screenies don't matter.

    General Screen Discussion
    Actually, the title of this thread isn't 100% accurate. It should be more like "Why Most Screenies don't matter"; but I'm getting ahead of myself. :) First, a few definitions: Screenie: A digital photo taken of a projection screen displaying a paused movie or television scene. Reference image...
  14. Will Blu-Ray Matter for Pioneer 720p Kuros?

    System Setup and Connection
    Hi All, Pretty new to Home Theater. I bought the 50" Kuros plasma 720p. I spent 45 minutes studying the difference between 720 and 1080 Kuros with a Blu-Ray input and while I could barely tell the tiniest difference between the two when studying paused images. I couldn't justify paying...

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Think Outside the Box or It Doesn't Matter Who Wins the Format War I think the real point is, "Who cares who wins!" Until you can go to the neighborhood rental place or on-line renter and readily get any of the formats, it doesn't matter :rant: Mr and Mrs. Joe Sixpack are looking for...

    DIY Screens
    I've been doing tons of research lately for my new screen, so I hope no one minds that I'm asking more questions and some of them are all over the place while I try to piece everything together in my head. The last thread I read was WBassett's thread about neutral grays and his awesome daytime...
