How did you mount the ceiling speakers? I have a cathedral ceiling and was thinking about mounting some dipoles like yours.


Are you the pilot of Voyager?

Small rooms are much better for bass. For this reason, I would actually prefer a smaller room than my current one. We need to be careful what we wish for,

I've once heard a difference between speaker wire, but I think it was because one wire was significantly thicker than the other so it had less resistance and hence sounded louder.

I think off. I assume that would tell the sub to play whatever it gets from the receiver as is.

I have about 10 subs and have never had a plate amp failure. I guess I've been lucky.

It's absurd they only offer the SB-2000. Otherwise you could get the PB-1000 for $500. At least that's what SVS charges for it.

Amazon isn't a good place to get good subs. You can get a good...

Unless your carpet is super thick shag, it probably won't make any difference. Even then, you could put the sub on a piece of plywood..

If your mlp is in a bad null, you can test this by walking around the room. If the subs sound good in some spots and anemic at the mlp, then you have a null and need to move one or both subs. If the...

Will Pioneer receivers gain faulty hdmi boards? Will Onkyo receivers use ice amps? Will Onkyo do away with Pioneer home audio? I guess we can only wait and see.

Only costing double isn't going to be enough. They need to be similarly priced to beat out LCD. Offering a smaller TV at a higher price isn't going to work.

Don't tell them. Chances are whoever repairs the unit only gets paid if they repair it, so they'll blindly fix whatever is broken.

$38 million seems like peanuts. Samsung is probably making a hedged bet on their success. They don't expect it to work, but if they pull it off, the ROI on Samsung's part will be huge.

Ditto for my 606. It was in an enclosed entertainment center and that probably didn't help. But my current Yamaha has been in the same spot for several years and it doesn't seem to mind.
