The reason I was hesitant about the center channel is that my room layout doesn't really allow me to move my fronts very far apart; there's only about 6-1/2' between them.

If I go for the center,...

If I wanted to upgrade my system piecemeal, would it make more sense to start with a center channel or surrounds?

I'm running a 2.1 system right now with a Pioneer VSX-521-K driving some Paradigm...

I just got a pretty good deal on this receiver, and aside from a couple of setup quirks (MCACC incorrectly setting my front speakers to "large," picking up a ground loop hum from the cable box) it's...

I can't really see that thing making a good HTPC replacement. In fact, I really can't figure out what the heck it'd be useful for. Therefore, I'll only be buying one or two of 'em until I do figure...

Interesting. What processor/gpu do you have? I can't imagine that 3 cores makes that much difference over 2.

I did my benchmarks using 10 seconds' worth of "Sucker Punch," pulling from 1000...

I thought I'd share my experience, in case anyone is on the fence about whether to buy a discrete video card for their Linux HTPC build. YMMV.

I finally got around to upgrading to a threaded...

I've been listening to my LSP-10 all weekend, and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. As I mentioned above, I'm running it off the speaker-level inputs (cheap 2.0 receiver). I set up the crossover...

On my TV, an LG LK450, I found that a 4' length of scrap coaxial cable (the same stuff that plugs into your cable box) made an adequate antenna for picking up local broadcast channels. I was in a...

I just ordered an LSP-10 as well; I live in an apartment with neighbors, so I figured the 12" might be overkill. I'm running a 2-channel stereo receiver, though, and nobody in this thread seems to...

Played around a bit more with it when I got home. Turned out it's coming from the cable box. Didn't catch it the first time, because unplugging the box didn't solve the problem! I had to unplug the...

I'm in the process of putting together my first "legit" system. I recently replaced my 80's Fisher 3-ways with some Paradigm Mini Monitors, and now I'm getting a very noticeable hum or buzz whenever...

Here's another thought: I could push my budget further if I held off on buying a better receiver, and just ran the subwoofer off the Insignia receiver. Problem is, it doesn't have a subwoofer...
