I don't know what speakers you have or whether you have an attic above your ceiling, but I would just use in-wall speakers for the ceiling instead of hanging boxes from the ceiling. I have Definitive...

Is it just me, or was anyone else hoping Kirk would spring into action and STUN them both? Either with a Type-1 phaser or with his patented karate chop to the back of the neck.

Very unlikely since the unit would need a complete DSP overhaul.That would be way more expensive than just adding an Oppo 103D for $600 that would handle 4K.

I probably don't need that much speaker, but I was thinking more on the line that the UIW series have the same drivers as my 7000SC and CLR3000. I'd like to stick with all 6.5" mids as well. I'm...

Would using DefTech UIW65 ( TM ) or UIW75 ( MTM ) ceiling-mounted for Dolby Atmos be a good idea?

I'd agree about Monster as far as their cables go although I have a couple of their HDMI and speaker cables bought when Tweeter filed Chapter 11. I paid way too much, even at 60% off retail, just for...

The mini-x a-100 does just a little bit above its rated specs. It won't give you much more raw power than the receiver but it WILL be cleaner power with less noise and distortion. The mini-x a-100 is...

Maybe I'm a sucker, but I like the build quality of the Monster Power surge/conditioners. The Monster HTS 1000 Mk3 is $90 on Amazon. I use both a Monster HTS 5100 Mk2 and HTS 1000 Mk3 for the various...

Take a look at the Teac A-H01. It is a Class-D amp ( 30w x 2 @ 8 Ohms ) and a 24bit/192k DAC with two analog inputs, 3 different digital inputs, and a sub-woofer out. It costs $250 to $300 retail and...

I'd go with the RB-61 II. They are direct-radiating and driver-match your front speakers.

Or Slim Whitman? " Aaak! Ak, ak, aak! "

Yes. I'd see a doctor. The sound could be playing with the fluid in your ears and causing those symptoms. Loud bass will cause this sometimes but it has to...
