Need a 5.1ch DB25 breakout XLR cable. Is there such an animal?

I got a Sherbourn 5/1500 amplifier recently. My preamp has XLR outputs, where the Sherbourn has either 5 RCA inputs or a 5.1ch input in a DB25 connector. All the breakout cables I see online have 8...

Didn't mean to imply it is a fad per se, but I think it's fair to think a lot of people like the scope screens because their "sexy". Depending on preferences and set up, a scope screen can make a lot...

I assume your new screens needs to be AT as well?

I doubt 136" 2.35:1 is too big for the RS46. If your changing screens though, I'd go with Seymours Center Stage XD, it's 1.1, with black speaker...

Anyone else's 55 start flickering after it's been on for an hour or so? Is there a solution, like running it through a power conditioner?

Indeed I'd just read about how the speakers need to be 10-12in behind the screen, not sure I'm willing to lose that much real estate.

I've got an EN4K sample on the way. Better be a lot better...

Well see that's simply not true. 3D conversions have improved radically. Pacific Rim is a conversion and it's my go to demo disc, Man of Steel is decent though the directors sepia tone ruins the...

Klipsch ProCinema speakers, KPT-904 mains, KPT-8060 surrounds and Reference CDT-3800 in ceilings. True the Atmos channels especially don't need separate amplification, but since I have enough amps. :D
