Go the extra mile and get Klipsch R-15PM. They are the kick-ass version of the R-15M.

Someone not on this forum asked me how we could see the picture on our Pioneer with the shades open during the day since "all the reviews say they don't have enough brightness in a well-lit room". I...

If you can summon up the energy try putting your classical collection on a drive using FLAC. It sounds noticeably better than MP3. And, if you do have plenty of storage capacity, use .WAV which is...

OK, will check out those suggestions. Didn't know pulldown screens were so susceptible to wrinkles or waves. Doesn't the bottom bar/rod/whatever provide tensioning through sheer weight/gravity? Sorry...

Dave in Green,
Silver Ticket screens look like they could be very good value except that they are fixed screens. We were hoping to get a pulldown type of screen. With a pulldown we could mount it...

Ellebob,
Thanks for your suggestions. Noticed the Da-lite Idea screen is a dry-erase board probably intended for classroom or conference room. Wonder how well it might work for movies and TV. Don't...

Hi, everyone. We just got an LG PF1000U. Currently it sits atop a bookcase, throwing an approximately 90-inch image onto an off-white textured wall. It seems the wall isn't perfectly flat as the top...

Check out the recent Klipsch R-15PM powered speakers for around $499. Very punchy, very dynamic. They are definitely livelier and more dynamic than the Audioengine A5+.

I second that. Stick with the 685 S2. Get them set up right, break'em in and live with them for a while. If you decide you must have more gut-crunching bass then add a fast, punchy subwoofer.

If you can place the B&Ws about 22" - 24" out from the wall it will allow them to produce a clean, tight punchy bass. Closer to the wall gives a richer bass sound. Depending on your room size it may...

B&W 685 S2 will provide the most neutral sound. This means no exaggeration of some musical tones over others. For example, treble (higher pitch sounds) can be boosted to give more bite, more snap to...
