  3. Audiophile needing economical speaker solutions for parents home

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    So even my parents could not handle the poor sound quality of a sound bar. There might be better ones at some price point but having HDMI switching, USB connectivity, and add features is preferred so we are going with a dedicated receiver and separates. The budget is already getting stretched...
  4. Sound bar or HT in a box for parents. Simple parents need help

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    So I got involved with my parents upgrade bug............ Very simple people but house is VERY difficult in audio due to 20+ft ceilings. They just want a bigger picture with "decent" sound. I selected a Phillips 55" LED for them which seems OK for now but audio was ridiculous. Dad ran down...

    Home Audio Speakers
    Saw they had their TV volume set to 9 so thought a good 65th anniversary gift would be a sound bar. Mom does not like speakers or wire and they both do good to work their AT&T Universal Remote. My question is as my folks have a Sony BDP-BX37 and I believe it will only do bit stream with HDMI...

  8. Things We Learn From Our Parents

    Chat Box SWAMP
    This was pretty funny: 1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE "If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning." 2. My mother taught me RELIGION. "You better pray that will come out of the carpet." 3. My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL. "If...
  9. Parents main speakers--Suggestions

    Home Audio Speakers
    Hey Shacksters, You guys always have great help--I took the advice on a receiver for my parents, which they just ordered through the Shack. Now they want to upgrade their main speakers (from 20+ year old Radio Shack specials). Upgradeitis has struck again! They want to spend about $200 for...
