Did you only run audyssey once? It could be a fluke or a few inches of mic movement will change something. I'd try running audyssey again and see if it changes anything in a second take. I don't have...

My guess is that you were getting bass reinforcement (for good or ill) when placing them near other objects (on a bookshelf, perhaps nearer a wall?). When you put them on a stand and move them into...

I have an 8040 and can't really tell the difference between it and the 65s (when multichannel audio is playing - they're all timbre matched well by DefTech). That said, just the 2 SM65s playing...

Just ordered a PC-2000 to go in the back of my theater room. I can't wait to integrate it with the PB-2000 in the front!

Have you double checked that you selected the correct audio track on the blu? Usually it'll be in the menu under setup - audio and you'll select "Atmos" or "Dolby TrueHD." I know some early Dolby...

I got one from Monoprice that has worked great so far. Just a regular PC power cord since that is what the BenQ uses. So I got a thicker, longer one to run across the ceiling and down teh wall.

Hmm. I don't have Fallout 4 so I can't test that one specifically. I rarely play games, I use my PS4 mostly for streaming and blu-rays. That said (self-justification here), I think I play just enough...

The PB-1000 is worth every penny over that Sony. I went from a Yamaha HTIB sub to a PB-1000 and that was a huge upgrade. (Now I'm enjoying a PB-2000, which is almost too much sub for my space - but...
