One reason to do this is to implement the house curve that I recommended. Setting speakers to "Small" and crossovers to 80 Hz lets him give the low end a 6 dB lift. I find that tweak very...

Unless you're playing your system loud enough to drive the AVR's amps into clipping, you probably won't hear any improvement by switching to an external amp.

AFAIK there aren't any 65" flat OLED's currently on the market. LG's flat 65EF9800 might be released later this year. I haven't been keeping up on this topic, so others may need to chime in.

For casual viewing (TV), I have a Samsung PN64F8500 with about 300 hours on it. The PQ on that set is lovely, so I don't expect to replace it anytime soon. Sony's XBR65X950B was the only set that I...

If you don't need to roll the chair around, remove the casters from the chair & place a sorbothane pad under each leg. If you want to be able to roll around then you'll need a platform.
