I added a 120mm exhaust fan to the upper back corner of my cabinet a couple years ago, powered off the 12V trigger out from my AVR. The 3312 has two 12V outs... one triggers the power amp and the...

I got it "fixed" sort of. If I switch to a 480 channel then SyFy is 1080 when I switch back. Seems to only be affecting SyFy for some reason. Must be a quirk of the DVR box.

Suddenly tonite I'm getting SyFy (TWC channel 1224) at 720p... I could have sworn it always used to be 1080i... I've switched channels back and forth and Spike, BBC, TNT etc are all still 1080, but...

Don't get this group started on wire! You'll get dozens of photos of pricey hookups and homemade cables. To me, wire is wire, as long as it is of suitable gauge and true copper conductor. In my...

I'd hang on to the 12's if I were you. It's not unusual to move your smaller speakers back and replacing them with larger units up front (I've done it many times!) The 12's do need a lot of power...

The Rti10's have a solid bottom end. Mine are crossed at 40Hz. Since the OP primarily listens to music, I would disagree on the need for a different sub-woofer. However, a Csi5/A6 center would better...

The A3's are great speakers, but you should definitely skip the CS10. That center is even too weak for anything but the smallest Monitor configuration. You should stay in the Rti line and go for the...

Definitely run Audyssey, then as zpatter mentioned let your speakers break in for a few weeks, then run Audyssey again.

The 6" drivers deliver male voices much better and are noticeably better for HT (action movies) compared to 5", which are fine for TV and casual music. I picked up a used Csi5 in excellent condition...

I had M40's in the bedroom before upgrading to Lsi9's in there. And we still have M60's, M30's and a CS10 in our vacation condo. As I said, great bang for the buck, but the Rti's are much better...

To be honest, the feet never bothered me, but I have found that a black marker can tone down the pewter trim on the grille, and the garish nameplates in particular.
