    Ok, so I found this Track Scan Inc. Model Number SR-5112, Item Number: 33000 at a local thrift store for $3USD and I was wondering exactly what this unit was. Doing a google search brings nothing up about this unit, but the name Track Scan brings up a company that makes racetrack cb type...

    To my fellow Western Hemisphere friends: raise your hand if you know that Onkyo has been operating a Hi-Res music download service since 2005. **silence** You are not alone. At least I think you’re not alone. Onkyomusic.com is rolling out in the United States, Britain, and Germany. There...

    I noticed there isn't a comprehensive post yet for how to get the most out of a store demo room. I thought it would be a good idea so I'm posting this. Please add your 2¢ and once it's done maybe we'll have a sticky to point members to with general rules of thumb. 1) bring your own demo...

    I want to purchase new speaker/home theater setup (including surround sound, tv, blu-ray player, etc.) for my living room, and I'm going to do it through the local electronics store in my town because I prefer to talk to people and get personal help. Are there any specific things I should ask to...

    Gifted my older receiver to my brother in-law for Christmas along with a new set of 5.1 speakers I bought him new. The UPS store dropped/smashed the receiver and then to add insult to injury packaged and shipped it to my brother in-law anyway. Not to mention they didn't double box it like I paid...

    I stopped by the DNP store today and meet with Manfried. I told him you asked me to say "Hi". He smiled and bowed towards me and with a big grin said "Hi" right back to you. WOW the Supernova Flex is amazing. The quality of the mechanics to raise and lower the screen was top notch. It wasn't...

    I went in and explained to the guy (it was fairly small so he may be the owner) that I'm just setting up my first surround sound system and didn't want to go with some HTIB because I want to expand it to better speakers later and I want to use the zone 2 hookup for a few sets of houe speakers...

    I am in the process of planning out my dedicated theater room in the basement and have hit a wall with deciding where to put all of my blu ray discs/boxes. In my previous home, that we just moved out of, they were in a dvd/blu ray wall rack purchased from best buy as an interim solution until we...

    Hi, all. As mentioned in a different thread I am buying a Swan Diva speaker system this weekend and am doing a re-organization of my system in anticipation of my Pioneer SC-LX85 amp next month. At the risk of igniting that most rancourous of debates, I was wondering about opinions regarding...

    A local store has a Yamaha 1065 for $680 and an Onkyo 707 for $665 on clearance. Neither one has remotes. They also have a 1065 for $630 with a remote. Which brand of the closeouts would you choose and why?

    I have some store credit at Best Buy and I need to pick out a computer before this weekend or at least in the next 3 weeks. The budget is $400.00 - $2000.00 (or more). I need a new computer that is good for gaming, graphic design, REW measurements, and surfing the net. It needs to have tons of...

    I have over 400 Movies and am wondering what it takes, as far as hard drives, to store them. Do I need to build a server to work with my PC? and what is the best media center to invest in?

    As the title says... what's the craziest and most inaccurate conversation you've heard people talk about in any store when it comes to either format? I'll start... I was in Walmart. A young couple was looking at the new release titles of Bluray and HD DVD and they were confused. The store...

    I'm curious about what the best video game store franchise might be... other than Game Stop. We already have a Game Stop in our town, but it's location is somewhat inconvenient. We have a great location next to our office and are considering opening a video game store. We would obviously want...
