    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hi all, The wife and I have recently purchased a new home and with it came a Yamaha DVX-S100 home theater system (Since I'm a new member, the forum won't allow me to insert a link, but you can see the DVX-S100 on amazon). Overall, we're really happy with it. The one issue I have is that we're...

  6. Older miniDSP Models vs. nanoAVR HD

    Audio Processing
    Hi Shacksters :) I've been trying to make sense of all the different flavors of miniDSP models that can be used in a home theater. I've read the reviews on and off this site, but guess what? I feel more helpless and useless than before. I started a different on-site thread to cover the...

  9. Blu-Ray player and older TV?

    System Setup and Connection
    I was given a Blu-Ray player recently. It only has a HDMI output. My Hitachi 53FDX20B RPTV has probably every kind of input but HDMI. What do I need to connect the Blu-Ray player to it without spending a lot of money? The Hitachi is giving me trouble lately. Sometimes takes a while to come on...

I bought it used at the local media exchange, I thought I just got a bad copy so exchanged it for the second copy they had. Nope, same ugly grain and pixel problems as the first one.

  12. Is the older Yamaha HTR-5990 any good?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Is the '06 Yamaha HTR-5990 (120 wpc x 7) a good AVR in general? Or should I keep my current non-hdmi RXV659 (100x7) receiver. I only have a 1080p hdtv and a 1080p dvd player, and no other sources. And now more specifically: The htr5990 has 2 hdmi inputs and 1 output, enough for me. I have an...

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    Hi All, I'm currently running a 10" B&W AWS610XP sub and a 15" Jamo THX SW-3015 servo sub. These are EQ'ed via an SMS-1. The room where my HT is set up is fairly large at 6.5m x 7m x 2.8m and can be sealed. For christmas I'm getting a SVS SB13-Plus to replace the 10" B&W. The 15" sealed 300W...
