I agree to wait until next year or later. That's what I plan to do. There's little to no 4K content and very few atmos enabled movies. Wait until content is available before buying hardware that uses...

The most important thing right now is running the speaker wire. It's way easier to conceal it now than after the drywall is up. I'm sure you knew that.


I suggest running 2 to the back for rear...

I can't believe people are concerned about a minute amount of cadmium in their TV. We all inhale millions of radon atoms every day. Radon kills 20,000 people every year.

It seems like the receiver manufacturers and TV stand manufacturers don't communicate well. Almost every TV stand has openings barely big enough to fit a receiver in. The only option is to place the...

I agree. The thread title is about breathing room and you're more concerned about aesthetics.

A blown fuse wouldn't cause the hdmi to fail. Fuses protect the power supply.

Things are bad everywhere, but Europe is particularly bad. I don't think there are many places in a worse depression than Greece right now. Spain, Portugal and Italy aren't too far behind. I have no...

Good news. 4K offerings have to start somewhere and this looks like an OK start. If people watch, their competitors will be forced to follow.

At a minimum, I would like to simultaneously use front wides and rear surrounds with 4 overhead atmos channels.


Optimally, atmos would be enhanced to use actual measured speaker locations.

If you decide to go with LCD, don't skimp on price. I've seen some of the black Friday LCDs and I think people are buying them sight unseen. They look terrible. Even the ones advertised as UHD.

The best TV at every size will be an OLED TV. They generally cost 2-3x what a typical LCD costs.

Brutal.


Outlaw has the lfm-1 plus for $449 shipped. There are other subs better for under $800 but for $900, you won't be able to touch a pair of them.

It had nothing to do with it being November. I've been shopping at 7AM for years and if anything, once the cold weather kicks in, fewer venture out that early. Plus, there was a long line in the TV...

If you want a receiver that will work properly with a 4K TV, you should get one with HDCP 2.2. Since HDCP 2.2 is new, I suggest waiting for next years models as they should all support 2.2 and have...

I agree. I have both a plus and an EX and I can't tell much difference between them. Obviously the Ex is a little bigger. If I did a blind listening test, I doubt I could tell which is which.

The outlaw lfm-1 plus is on sale for $449 shipped right now. I have it and the legend and the outlaw is clearly superior. If you want more, get two of them for $900. You won't be disappointed.
