I put two B&W M1 speakers on the wall at ceiling height on their flexible mounts - they are essentially "on" the ceiling, though they're not mounted on it directly. My Denon 5200 makes good use of...

I have the same experience with my EVGA 970 and this set - very happy - and I have the same YouTube issues. Very odd, but not fatal and it recovers quickly. I really haven't played with the YouTube...

Surprised no one has mentioned Audioholic's preview of the Denon 7200... Personally, I'm not too happy that there will be a hardware upgrade to HDCP 2.2 for that receiver, but not for the 5200. That,...

I did the firmware update on the TV, but that wasn't the problem. Out of the box, the EVGA 970 graphics card does 4k @ 30hz. You have to enable UHD color on the Samsung to get 4k @60hz 4:4:4 color....

A USB 3.0 thumbdrive is roughly 10x the speed (in theory, anyway!) of a USB 2.0 thumbdrive. That COULD be a factor. I had issues with a USB 3 drive that cleared up when I reformatted it. Then the...

Holy Moly, Batman! The 40" 6950 I just paid $899 for at BB last week is $597 on their Black Friday special... I think I might have to try to do a price match or something. I wish the 50" 8550 was on...

Hadn't seen that - it's a 1080p set, but that's a good price for a 55" 3D set. As I sit here squinting to see text on my 40" 4k, I sometimes wish I'd just stayed 1080p... I don't quite have...
