    I love action and my wife goes to bed relatively early. I would like to only use my center at night for tv watching. I have a Yamaha TRS brand new. Pleas help
  2. Fitzurse Room (the wife is admitted - barely)

    Home Theater Room Photos (Finished Rooms Only)
    My system is relatively modest but I think I've squeezed every drop of soundstage, imaging and resolution from these Motion 12s. I'd never heard the Motions when I read the $1,000 shootout, which got me interested (excited?) so I drove over to Alabama and bought a new pair for $400. I've never...
  3. Eeek... Wife Moving at Light Speed!

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    Long story short... we are renovating the house to sell at some point in a year or two, and my wife has agreed to let me move the HT into a bigger room. Problem is, she's making decisions faster than the light from my plasma can reach my spinning head (so I have little time for research today)...
  4. Something my wife wanted

    Chat Box SWAMP

    Care Chapel
    well, as some know I've had some fun health issues the last 8 months or so and the day before yesterday we had a fun "trio" of surprises, the main one being that my wife, who happens to carry the health insurance between the two of us...I'm an independent contractor, was told that her entire...

  9. Back porch zone, main zone, and wife friendly

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I am swimming in PDF literature, trying to understand basic zone functions before purchase of a new a/v receiver. The budget is $1500 +/-, and I've researched Pioneer Elite SC-7*, Yamaha Aventage, Denon X4000, and a few Marantz models. But stumped is me. With the risk of being too vague, I would...

  11. My wife is ill

    Care Chapel
    Has been for some time and after a dozen doctors have looked at her it has been determined that there isn't much that can be done except make her comfortable and make sure she doesn't over exert and try to keep stress at a minimum. For 23 years she has kept me from going nuts so please keep us...

    Howdy, folks, I'm planning to build a dedicated listening room in my new house. I'll be building this system from the ground up with a modest budget. I started off aiming to keep it under a grand, which quickly ballooned to $1500, but has since been shaved back a bit thanks to some awesome...
  15. My new AVR is monstrous.

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    The Integra DTR 70.3 has been delivered and installed. First I would like to say that this unit is fantastic! My cds have never sounded this good and my tv has never looked so good. Still a lot to go through and learn. One disappointment was that this unit does not have bridging capabilities...
  16. Wife support

    AV Home Theater
    I need some advice on how to convince my wife I am not going overboard and to be 90% supportive of the project.
