    I have a Samsung BDP1600 blue ray player. I hate it. I would like a new/used one to replace this one. My dad has 2 Pioneer Elites, BDP95FD and a BDP23FD. I saw that they have a new model BDP31FD. I read the specs on it. Things like 36 bit deep color ? Do you want more or less? Is there a brand...

    All, Found the Home Theater Shack last week and have been pouring over forums since. I have a decent main floor set up but would like to take advantage of my hard wired home network (2 year old house) as well as plan for future theater in the basement. I currently have a WD HDTV with several...

    A fellow online admin of another forum is asking me about a 65" or larger HDTV setup. His budget is about $3-4K. He would like 480Hz, 3D, and wireless video. This will be mounted above a fireplace... HDMI is possible, but wireless would be nice. This is mainly a video setup... he is not...
  4. System Setup and Connection
    Hello all, I just purchased a Panasonic DMP-BD85 bd player for the analog preouts to use on my legacy receiver's preamp inputs. At this time I am running a 5.0 setup until my sub gets here in about a week and every thing sounds good. In the player's setup menu I can select speaker size...

    I've got a PS3 hooked to a Onkyo 705, but am thinking of getting a stand alone CD player. I do NOT want to spend much, and would even go used if it was a quality product. I'm not a total audiophile but really enjoy great quality music. Any suggestions?

    Hi All, I am wondering if I should get an Xbox 360 or a Dell Zino to handle media file playing duties in my living room. The files are stored on a NAS and consist of movies and MP3's. The Xbox has obvious additional functionalities that will be fun, while the Zino gives me a computer in my...

    Hi, I have the chance to get a Samsung BD-P1500 blu-ray for pretty cheap (<$100). My original plan was to buy a PS3 for blu-ray (and get a free gaming system with it :bigsmile: ) but the PS3 will run me ~$500 Canadian. Is the BD-P1500 a good choice blu-ray player? If it is as good as PS3...

    Okay, I'll admit that it's a cheaper player, I bought it for the HDMI connection for under 50 bucks. It's a Philips DVP3962/37. It's strange really. I have played a few movies on it since getting an HDMI cable ( 6ft length ) without issue. I tried one of my Star Wars DVD's the other day...

    I've worked since late fall in upgrading my entertainment room to plasma T.V., HD box, Harmon-Kardon AVR 146, KEF speakers 5.1 setup. Now my weak link is my Citizen brand DVD player from a few years ago. It does have component cables and and a jack for digital coax which I am using. It does not...
  10. System Setup and Connection
    I am trying to play back DVDs sending the sound through my foobar crossover. I am running active crossovers through the foobar crossover then out to my external soundcard then the preamp/ amps. I need to pipe the signal through foobar to get full bandwidth sound to all of my drivers keeping my...

    Hello HT lovers, It has been very long times I had been played home movie theater since most of my times is concentrated in DIYing and listening to my two channel system. That mean I do not know anything about HT. I need your help to build my family's HT which my wife loves to watch movies...
