  1. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hey everyone, I just purchased my first home this September and the first order of business is getting the basement set up for a modest home theater system. The previous owner had done some work and was using a 7.1 system, but the research I've done so far has me thinking that this space isnt...

    I used to own a couple of TOTL Onkyo receivers... The TX-NR905 and the TX-NR906. I really liked them a lot but they both succumbed to the dreaded HDMI board failure. This year, I decided it was time to look into a new receiver. I ended up buying the Pioneer SC-67 at Best Buy for $1200, about...

    I have owned an M&K MX-100 for about 15 years. I think it is very good with movies, but cannot do music well. I am trying to decide whether to buy another used MX-100, two HSU VTF-15H subs or one Kreisel DXD-12012. My dedicated room has a concrete floor and measures 22x17x8. I would appreciate...

    I've had my sc-57 for about a week and enjoying it and leaning it. I tried to set up a second HDMI out to a 22" monitor but after several tries I am left with no audio or video through the whole system even though I've done several system resets. Anyone got any ideas?
  11. Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi, I received my unit today and it had no manual, downloaded the manual online and not really helped. I have a Yamaha RX-Z11 amplifier and from this at the moment I have a single RCA connection between the amplifier and the subwoofer. I am assuming that I now need to put the BFD between the...

    I wanted to post a short note to say I just purchased the Elite PRO70X5FD. Those that know me, know I have been an avid Sony fan and customer for the past 30+ years. I've been shopping for a new TV to replace my aging Sony KDS-R70XBR2. For the past four weeks I've been struggling over...

    hi, I would be very thankful if a fbq2496 owner could give me the chemical capacitor values on the fbq2496 processor board. I was in the process of modding it and removed all caps without paying attention that there was no label about values, which is the first time I see that in behringer...

    Hi all, I found this site by searching the web for Velodyne DF-661. I currently have two pair of these speakers, which I have been using in a 4.1 configuration with a 15 inch Velodyne subwoofer. I would like to find three more so I could go to full 7.1 audio. I currently enjoy my LG 32-inch...

    Truly an old duffer, born in the Hoover administration. I don't have a real home theater, just a living room with three CHT SHO-10s up front and a pair of Epik Sentinels hidden under a home built 9 foot long unit. A pair of old Cambridge Soundworks dipoles are hanging from a 13 foot peaked...

    I received my Oppo BDP-93 yesterday. The first thing I noticed was the weight difference. It is much heavier than any DVD/BR player I've experienced . It's almost as though there is something actually inside the case. I hooked it up and loaded Pink Floyd "Pulse" for a test. It is amazing how...

    Hello. :wave: New to The Shack and a new SVS PB13 owner as well. By far...the best subwoofer we have owned in our HT. Looking forward to sharing ideas and learning more about getting the most out of our sub. I'm very interested in calibrating as it is plugged in with "out of the box"...
