Well. To be fair. One asshat... Alec Peters. You have to admit that he assembled quite a crew to do the acting and SFX. The Prelude to Axanar had CBS so scared that they put a stop to ALL current fan...

I haven't had any problems streaming music with my X7200WA, but I know better than to use WiFi for stuff like that and expect it to work 100%. EVERYTHING permanent in my house is hard-wired and only...

Receiver brands are different on how they label it in speaker settings but it would be something like LFE+Main or LFE+L/R. Turning that on would combine the LFE signal with the mains, which is the...

Crossover is disabled when setting to " large " so the sub receives the full signal. The LFE signal is usually tied in with the L&R.

Much cheaper to just buy a USB Blu-ray burner and use it with any existing computer you have access to. A Pioneer 6x BDXL drive would run about $130 but I'd wait until they get updated with AACS 2.0,...

If you wanted the game on release day, there generally wasn't a difference in price. Discounting was more rapid on PC games and waiting a month after a game was released could save 50% from MSRP....

I find that Amazon usually has a $5 to $7 premium for 4K Blu, which is worth it for me since these sets often come with the standard Blu-ray. I know The Martian and Deadpool were only about $5 more...

I chose the Peerless SUA765PU ( extends out to 24" ) for my 75" Sony. I needed exact placement and access to the "back" side of the wall I was mounting it on was easy, so I cut the drywall on the...

I don't think the Network Reset works, at least in my case, since it just booted normally and went into the update loop. I tried several times. Could be because I'm using trigger out for my amps. I...

I'd pay a $300 premium for a player that isn't curved. Hopefully, this will spur Oppo into releasing a player sooner rather than later.

My X7200WA is stuck in the " Update Retry " loop after downloading the update. I let it go overnight and it is still in this loop. I guess I'll have to do a hard reset and wipe all of my settings.

I'd probably just use the wet saw and cut a small trough ( 1.5" x 1.5" or so ) from wire entry point to the speaker locations and chisel it out. Get some 3/4" PVC to drop into the trough and cover it...

[Raises Hand] Like ME. I'd definitely order the 6S direct from Emotiva. You'll be fine bass-wise with anything except EDM, Rap, and most electronica. Playing that kind of music is fine on the 6S but...
