Hi everyone.

My name is Oskar and I'm passionate about movies. I really like to watch good thriller and horror movies on a big screen.

Right now I'm setting up my little home movie theatre. So I guess I will shoot a few questions once in a while.

Greetings.

I'm Chris...new here, but excited to learn. Looking to upgrade from my Klipsch Sub 8 very soon, as it's not keeping up with my movies at all! Open to any advice!

Hey everone, I'm really glad I found this forum as I'm just about to build my first home theatre setup, I'm really new to the scene, I've never even experienced surround sound (other than full blown cinemas). Currently got a Sony 48" KDL48600B tv with an Nvidia Shield on which I use Plex 95% of the time with hardwired ethernet connection throughout my condo (which I bought not too long ago). I figured, the last step is to add a proper sound system and call it a day.

I'm coming from a background in graphic design (been working in the field for 15+ years), photography, a lot of electronic dance music, some DJ experience and am generally pretty good with PC builds (currently running a Hackintosh). So, I'm pretty tech savvy, just not so much in the audio world.

Ok, dumbest question in the forum - how do you search a specific thread? Some of these threads are 100's of pages and I'm hoping to be able to do a search but when I do a search, it's not specific to the thread I was in and I see no way of filtering. I've read the FAQ and tutorials and have done Google searches so what am I missing?

Hello all! New here but long time A/V lover. Over the years, I've been through an RCA RV3695, Yamaha DSP-1 for my first 5.1 setup, a Pioneer VSX-1020 that I bought new, KLH 5.1 speakers, Yamaha bookshelf speakers that were an upgrade for the front of the KLH's, all in my living area, TV room. Now I'm working on building my first home theater in my bonus room with a used Pioneer Elite VSX-80 and a set of Pioneer Andrew Jones speakers with SP-FS52's with the matching set by Pioneer to make a 5.1 setup. I added the spare KLH's from my TV room for 7.1 audio and a Sanyo Xtrax PLC 720p projector matched to a Silver Screen 106" fixed frame screen. Top it off with a free recliner couch from my wife's previous boss' house and I think I've got a pretty decent home theater for a first try. I'm already working on upgrades, shopping for a newer 1080p projector with HDMI inputs so I can hook up my gaming systems and enjoy some true HD video. I've already learned bunches as a lurker - I can't wait to see what new things I learn in the process of refining my home theater.

Thank you
Geoff

Hi Gents,


I am member since longer, but did't say officially "Hi" here.


I joined AVS since I was looking into buying a new sub and as it turns out, it became a complete HT makeover. New subs (yes, two), new speakers and Pre/Pros and since I moved to Germany, new ARV and TV.


Now I am in the process of installing everything in my open room concept and am looking forward to enjoying my complete HT soon! I'll share a pic once it's appropriate to do so.


Stay tuned,


Kev

Hello Everyone! I am Brandon and am new to the world of home audio. I'm a Construction Engineer and have been building a home for the last couple years and am finally getting to my favorite part.... the basement (man cave)! Have been designing a home theater/game room the last couple months and gathered a lot of intel from this site so joined to get more... It's becoming very addicting!

Greetings from Carlsbad, CA -- down San Diego way.

After many years being an AV enthusiast, for whatever reason, I just found AV Forums in the last couple of weeks, and have been consuming so much great info. I've also caught up with a number of Scott's past podcasts, and am subscribed for future editions.

I started many moons ago with a little plastic portable phono (stereo!) as a young kid consuming my 33's and 45's in my room at my parent's home. As a teenager, saved my odd-job dollars for a very long time to purchase an original set of Bose 901's for my bedroom that served me well for years as I went through college, several apartments, and back-and-forth across a couple of states. I became a Pioneer AV receiver kinda guy back then, with one of the first massively clunky and complex-to-program JVC VHS decks, back when you bought expensive pre-recorded movies on VHS tape for $60-$80+. Had a Teac reel-to-reel for a while, but never quite got into my own recording scene, so my Teac Cassette was used a lot more. Got into Pioneer Laserdisc in earnest, collecting more than 150 discs back-in-the-day, and went through the horrible laser rot situation that ate away at much of my collection (remember that?). While now I wish I'd kept all my vinyl, I began buying CDs to replace them when CDs first entered the market -- now amassing 900+ in my collection (all of which have been ripped lossless for use on my Mac and portable devices). Movies went the same way -- laserdisc out, DVD in, and eventually Blu-ray as that came into being. Went through Nakamichi back in the good 'ol days, then Denon, and on to Pioneer Elite for AVRs and a number of components through the years.

I settled in my present (and hopefully last) home nearly 10 years ago, and am more recently retired. Upon completing an extensive remodel that started the day I moved in, I purchased my cherished 50" Pioneer Elite PRO-FD1 1080p Plasma Monitor which has served me very well all these years mounted above my fireplace. I've had wo different Pioneer Elite AVRs during that time with my 5.1 Definitive Tech Mythos 2 L&R, Mythos 3 Center, a SuperCube III and a pair of ProMonitor 800's serving as my surrounds. A Panasonic Blu-ray player has done its job in more recent years, complimented with each of the successive Apple TV models as those have come and gone. I'm not into gaming, so watching TV, a movie many nights each week, and listening to my tunes is what I spend most of my AV time with.

In the past few months, age has starting showing it's ugly head in several of the components, and I've decided it's now time to make the jump to 7.1 and improve my subwoofer and surround speaker situation as well. I'm definitely a plasma fan, and have purposely put off moving to most of the newer LCD/LED tech over the past few years because of wanting "black, blacks", decent motion without too many artifacts, and my primary entertainment viewing area is just flat out problematic -- odd shaped, open on half of the front section into the kitchen, which is relatively bright during the day, with wide viewing angles when there is more than 1 person wanting to watch the TV.

By mid-May, my new primary Family Room setup will be:

Denon AVR-X4300H 9.2 Receiver -- in place

Definitive Tech Mythos 2 L&R -- in place
Definitive Tech Mythos 3 Center -- in place
Definitive Tech DI 6.5R for L&R Surround -- in progress
Definitive Tech DI 6.5R for L&R Rear Surround -- in progress
Definitive Tech SuperCube 4000 Subwoofer -- in place

Sony Bravia XBR55A1E 55" OLED 4K HDR TV -- on order

Sony UBP-X800 4K Blu-ray Player -- in transit
Apple TV 4th Gen -- in place
DirecTV Genie -- in place (will upgrade to 4K-enabled once everything else is complete)

Panamax 5300EX Power Conditioner -- in place
Logitech Harmony One -- in place
...and of course, various iOS apps to control the devices as well
I look forward to learning from all of you!

Hi everyone-

I've been reading these forums on and off for probably 10 years.
I Decided to finally join because I'm having problems with OLED and want to post findings.
I've mainly been a CRT and Plasma guy. Had DLP rear projection once.

I love audio too!

-Simon

Hi all,

I've been reading these forums off and on now for almost a decade. Expecting to make some HT purchases soon, so I decided to officially join the party. I know I'll need to ask some questions before too long!

Hello, registered a short time ago but never posted in this thread.

I have been planning a complete overhaul of my "gaming" room (which is basically me hooking up my consoles to my pc monitor, no tv in here lol) to a new HT/gaming room w/a new tv and decent sound system and these forums have been invaluable at helping me figure out things.

Hello

Hello, forum. I'm mostly here for OTA reception advice and because I'm still waiting for the TVFool forum to let me post. I live in a very difficult reception area and enjoy coming up with ways of making things work here.

Welcome, VoackWotGej3

The tvfool forum has a shortage of moderators, so it often takes a long time before you are able to post. Some users ask a question by PM if they can't wait any longer.

The regulars here are also able to help with reception problems.
