I'm planning to use Klipsch CDT-5800-C II in-ceiling speakers. I'm surprised that so many people are recommending RS-series speakers -- I would think that monopoles would work best as Atmos heights.

Is AVS getting out of the Klipsch game or something? AFAIK new Klipsch speakers aren't even going to be announced until next year. I'm fairly certain the usual suspects like ASD and Sound...

I'm a big proponent of having all of the speakers in a given setup be from within the same series. If the R-28F's are your mains, get the R-52C. My secondary setup is a Klipsch a Icon W arrangement...

Whew, if that convergence is within spec, that's awful! I wouldn't accept that; that's easily visible from a normal viewing distance.

That's what misconvergence looks like. Most newer projectors have controls to help compensate for this, but I looked through your projector's manual and it doesn't look like yours does. If I were...

You definitely got a good deal!

FWIW crossover frequency tells you nothing about relative speaker performance. By themselves, the facts that the R-28F's crossover frequency is 1800MHz and the...

Just curious - why'd you go with R-28F's instead of RF-82II's?

Well, if the the 4520 is any indication, I'd expect the front panel of the X7200W to at least be taller than the X4100W/X5200W.

You'll get used to the size of that RC-62II in no time. Heck, my RC-64II doesn't even seem that big any more!

Amen, brother. And I also remember when the mods would do some serious hand-slapping when pricing other than MSRP was discussed.

Noticeable 3D flickering, especially in bright scenes, is normal for JVC projectors. I find I get used to it within the first few minutes of a movie and really don't notice it after that.

You don't have to try it to know it won't work. Denon Link HD is just a separate coax connection that carries timing information to reduce jitter. It won't do anything like you suggest. And I have...

Without straying too far off topic, I paid $1600 for my 4520 back in May and $1200 for a closeout 4311 a year or so ago and both of those were screaming good deals. This BB deal on the 4520 is...

Since we're talking about Denon deals and Magnolia, check out the deal that Magnolia has on the AVR-4520CI, BNIB, right now ($1000). THAT might even be a better deal than the X4000 deal posted above.

Off-topic, but why would you bother switching a PC12-NSD for a PC-2000? If the differences between the SB12-NSD & SB-2000 and PB12-NSD & PB-2000 are any indication it doesn't seem worth the hassle. ...
