I didn't have time to test the PCM to DSU last night and am headed out of town for a few days on business. Maybe someone else can test it with their 8802 (or 8802A). It was the first day I had the...

Kris,

DSU didn't work with PCM soundtracks when I tried to see ho "Blackhawk Down" would sound in DSU...I only got the 5.1 PCM soundtrack (which was on the disc).

Watching Tiger mi**** that chip was painful, although he lost the tournament before that meltdown. His putter really failed him.

If he hit the ball like this most of the summer, he would have been in contention more. This is the best I've seen him hit the ball (and most consistent) in over 2 years. His driver was on fire...

I reviewed the amp a couple of years ago and I found it to be somewhat "noisy" compared to an Anthem amp I was using at the time (PVA-7). Maybe it didn't mesh well with my M&K speakers, but I'd buy...

I would not get the Marantz amp IMO. It's very weak power wise and runs out of gas fast. I'd look at Emotiva amps over the Marantz if you're looking to save some money. Kris Deering has some in his...

If you live in an area with lots of Thunderstorms, I'd put in a whole-house surge protection unit at the panel. You can look them up on Google. Well worth the money in your conditions.

I don't agree with Manohla Dargis. I really liked the first movie and enjoyed this one too (although it's not quite as good as the first). Frankly, I find the story more entertaining that "The Hunger...

She enjoyed the movie, but didn't care for the ending that much. She thought it could have been done better. She also didn't like the exploitation of women, but she missed the underlying point in...

They only wrote V for Vendetta j, they didn't direct it. Given their recent track record, if they directed it, it would have sucked a$$.
