I'm using a wireless 360 controller as I really can't use a kb/m for any length of time. That being said, the game recognizes it and defaults to having four abilities mapped to XYAB then using L2 as...

Mixing sub sizes...Good idea? Bad idea?

So I've just been upgrading my theater and decided to get rid of my second set of seating, which was a bar table and two stools. This has freed up room for me to add another subwoofer. Currently, I...

That is awesome! He did an amazing job in both Kill Bill 2 and Reservoir Dogs. For some reason he's just such a likeable character.

Thanks, Ralph. Did anyone else find the DTS:X intro to be very lackluster compared to the Atmos one? It lasted like 3 seconds and did nothing for me. Yes, I don't have an immersive audio setup...

Doublewing11, you are so anal retentive and I think that's awesome! Your setup is going to sing because of that, I'm sure of it. Keep posting your progress. As for me, I'm set up speaker-wise and...

The Anthem equivalent to the 3050 is the MRX 1120 (which has 11 channels of amplification), which isn't out yet and probably won't be until at least the end of the year. And, yes, that one WILL be...

So, how is the YPAO room correction? Good? Bad? Ugly? Inquiring minds want to know. I'm still sitting on the fence and this is the one thing stopping me from jumping in just yet.
