I feel like I had upgradeitis until I hit that sweet spot where an upgrade from where I am at would cost far too much for far too little benefit. Since I realized that an upgrade at this point would...

Personally, I'm more concerned about more cost conscious projectors with permanent light sources than I am about 4K. I can't believe so few LED or laser projectors have made it to market. If the...

I guess I just don't see the point of having two identical outputs. I can buy a simple video splitter to accomplish that, so it really doesn't add much. When I can output three different music...

My 4 ohm speakers kick pretty hard (it is actually two 8 ohm speakers wired in parallel), so I never bothered to add a subwoofer.

Wow, this is infuriating to hear. I designed my basement with an independent Zone 2 as a critical piece of the puzzle, and never realized it was just a splitter. Why bother include it then?

Out of phase should mean one of your speakers is wired backward.

The ohms should be set to 6 ohms for 4 ohm speakers, I confirmed that with Yamaha.

I have the Sharp DT-510. I am happy with it, I actually love it, but it is 720p and the bulb is getting dim. I'm sick of buying $300 bulbs, so I am ready to upgrade. But since I have a serviceable...

That projector looks awesome, but it is $450 more than the PF1500, and I have a soffit in front of the wall that I can't attach to, and a play area so I can't go below the picture either. I'm just...

I did the same as VARTV. I cannot understand why the remote app is more limited than the remote.

Another pet peeve of mine is that stations are only listed by preset number, so you have to...

Panasonic PT-RZ470UW

I am interested in the PT-RZ370U...
