For what it's worth...
CEC is inconstant at best and I've therefore avoided using it. Others seem to like it.
I've had very good luck with Yamaha AVR's ;-) Others are less happy with them.

As a DirecTV subscriber, I have the same choice with their DVR boxes. I always choose native because I want to see whatever is sent. This does cause the mentioned re-syncing issue but it's not as...

*Official* Roku 3 Streaming Player Thread

I get that you don't like it, but it sounds like a fairly standard capitalistic company - one that's doing very well. How is this a lot different from Wal-Mart, Apple, etc? I also see that Amazon...

Agree with all of the above - plus, the higher quality was inconsistent at best and therefore not worth 2x the price of Spotify. Lastly, I find it difficult to swallow Jay-Z's concept that what I'm...

I agree. My standard setup procedure for my RX-A2010 is to run YPAO to get it fairly close and then tweak the settings manually using a SPL Meter and my ears.

I wonder what that might mean for people already above rather standard speeds (I'm at 30/5). Interesting.

With Cable TV already dying a predictable death due to cord-cutters moving to OTA and multiple, more-than-competitive streaming and hardware options, it would be in the TWC's best interest to get...

OK as a former machinist and tool and die maker, I'll tell you (and others) that 1/4-20 refers to ANY screw that is 1/4" (.25") in diameter with 20 threads/inch. A 1/4-20 screw can be any length...

Nice! You'll love the 83's. As I think I mentioned earlier, when I got my RF-83's, I was going to get RF-82II's but the A/V store had the used 83's, so we did an A/B comparison to decide which to...

I'm curious which OTA DVR you settled on. The Roamio looks great and had TiVo DVRs previously and they were great. I won't do without time-shifting DVR capabilities anymore.

Interesting! In April 2012, I found this used LCR set. At $2000 for the EBay pair of 83's, the price seems to have increased since then.

Klipsch owner thread

I'm sure you'll be very happy with the 83's in your system. I have a very odd combination of Klipsch speakers for my 7.1 setup (see my sig), but I smile every single time I fire 'em up!!

Apple TV owners' thread.

Absolutely agree with this. For the few components that I have that came with CEC, it was turned it off as soon as they came out of their boxes. CEC causes more problems than it's worth.
