    So as my post title says in iTunes I want to improve the quality of music without messing up the playlists? Is that even possible? Meaning can I take my original CD and import it again using something better than VBR mp3 format? Will it copy over the original file? And what should I use AAC...

    I'm trying to get some input regarding plans for an upgrade to our home theater system. Minimally, we will be replacing our AVR and our television. Audio quality is a big priority, as is the ability to accommodate analog input. My working assumption is that I should avoid AVRs or...

    I have an Epson 8350 porjector and an 100" elite screen. I was curious if it made a difference what bluray player I am using for video/sound quality.

    I'm hoping to get some advice in trying to get up to speed for our first venture into flat screen TV. I was set to go for the small panasonic tc p42s60 plasma, then found it wasn't even available. It is actually larger than we'd like anyway, so starting again with the reading, I'm now looking...

    I need an HDMI splitter to take on input and send it to two outputs. I have seen what is available and there are complaints about most all of them. It seems that it increases the delay when switching channels, especially if you from HD to SD, etc. Also, some of them are dependent upon both...

    My goal is to buy a TV which does not fall very far from the best picture quality (within reason) available. I guess I'll define within reason to be below the cost of 3000$ (unless I'm given a convincing reason to increase that number). I would like to drive cost down by not having many...

    I seem to have subwoofers in differing tonal quality. At the top is the integrated subwoofers in my Selah Audio RC4. The driver is the scan speak revelator 23W/4557T with the O-audio 500 watt amp. The next in quality is the lucid acoustics sub with the CSS sdx 10 and the keiga 5230 amp. The scan...

    Up to this point in time I have not been able to listen to streaming audio. The quality has been poor at best and I just can't do it. However, my understanding is that some music streaming services have upped their data rate to levels that might be OK. And with bandwidth being cheaper they...
