    AV Home Theater
    As I look back over my journey through home theater...I'm sure I'm not the only one that wishes I had done something just a little different from the get-go. I think I've corrected most of my early mistakes... most ;-). Of course, there's always that lure of upgradeitis. So I thought it...

    I noticed this a long time ago and now it has returned again, after taking measurements for a few hours I noticed that in the area around 2k-20k the curve has changed quite alot. Strange because I didn't change anything in that area!!! Anyone have any ideas? Here are the before and after curves.

  11. Is there such thing as passive av processors?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I am planning a new system. Apparently, the newer 70"+ flat screen all have multiple HDMIs so I am set on using the TV as my HDMI switch/hub. I have 5 active speakers so I don't need power amps. My missing link is a device that input the digital audio from the TV and output as 7+sub RCA...
