7 half-hour episodes = 2.5 hours of content, little more than a movie. Maybe Louis will treat it as such; he seemed...

The 8020ST has a powered 8" bass driver. Don't think of it as a subwoofer, but as the woofer in a three-way system. Looked at that way, the 3.5" drivers become strictly midrange drivers, and the ...

It doesn't, because it isn't, and IMO they did a disservice to everyone by invoking that term.

I am currently using the PC2000 with BP8b mains and PM1000 surrounds and rears.

IMO the match is near optimum. The PC2000 uses the same size and similarly-voiced drivers as the BP8b, and is an...

What I'm saying is if they have a "safe word" it isn't "no," and Cersei didn't use it. Consent can be expressed in all sorts of ways, including non-verbally and from prior context. Or, more bluntly,...

If that location works for the PC1000 it will work as well for the PC2000. Location near a room boundary will only help reinforce the low end.

This is a perfectly legitimate approach; in essence, you would treat the PS1000/PM1000 mains as a pair of "large" speakers. It would play back all the bass that belongs to the main L/R channels, but...

Yep. Just seven weeks of hour-long blocks. But wow, very intense stuff, comedy as art. Some serious surrealism, too.
