    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. 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. 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)...

    Not really sure where to post this so Mods feel free to move it where it belongs.. I'm curious as to all your experiences when it comes to the WAF of your purchases... I was with my X for 17yrs. High school sweethearts. From the beginning she knew what she was getting into with me and my love...

My goal is to have wife (That just had stroke) and I to get satellite tv gone considering we are on federal funds now.. We have many movies to watch on...
  6. 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...

  8. Home Theater System Recommendations
    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...

    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...
  10. 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. I am planning what I believe to be a reasonable project with a modest room size, home built speakers, and listening to her advice when she didn't want to see any of the speakers. She...

  12. AV Home Theater
    in November. Any place I should go and see that an avid audiophile would appreciate? We will be there for 5 days and one of those we will be taking that super sweet boat up to Canada to check it out. I searched the performing arts centers to see if anything that would display the sound and...
  13. Home Theater System Recommendations
    Ok the plan was to build the TriTrix knock down kit from PE. Wife was on board I was happy. Now she wants me to hide the speakers so an inwall may be the way to go. Is it possible to get the same sound quality and Volume for music as well as HT???? the other issue is price. I figured with the...

  15. IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    I've gotten the OK from the wife to move from what was an appropriate sub for my college apartment to something more.. "significant". She's even signed off on minimally invasive holes in walls. CHA-CHING! Man, I'm getting a huge grin just typing that! Below you'll find pics of our living...

  17. System Setup and Connection
    Hi there- Just got separated, and unfortunately the wife got the killer TV. Stuck with an old TV from about 10 years ago, TV with coaxial input only. I watch a lot of movies from my laptop, in the past it was a DVI-D cable to HDMI adapter cable...no problem. Right now I have the coaxial cable...
  18. Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Hi all, After reading many a build thread and countless articles I finally decided to build a sonosub. My hats off to Steve Callas and ssabripo (Lord of Bass) and many others that share their experiences so we all can learn. I am basically going to copy what Bill3 did here a while back, except...
