    I'm trying to decide on the best quality setup for my circumstances. I like the towers for fronts and l like the double angled speakers for sides but prefer dull black color on the speaker but would consider others like wood. I just don't like the high gloss look or colors that stand out. I'm...

  14. HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    Looking for new tv for my brother. He had an old Sony, 50", non- HDTV that looks horrible! Want 120 hz, 1080p, no Internet,, and no 3d. He has about $1200 to spend. Anything will look better than the set he has right now. Is there anything decent in that price range and size? Don't care if LCD...

  18. DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I need a sub. I started looking around, and came to the conclusion that an eD A2-300 would fit the bill. However, since I live in Canada, the cost went from $350 USD to $515 CDN (after shipping etc.). The same went for other subs (HSU, SVS, BIC). I did not like the idea of paying 150-200% of the...
