If you get an external amp, I would definitely get a 5-channel amp and connect the pre-outs Front L/R, Center, and Surround L/R to the amp. Since the RX-A3000 really doesn't do codecs above 7.x,...

Can't believe I missed this thread as a lot of the Q's Jorah asked pertained to the stuff I settled on.

I build SFF ( Small Form-Factor ) computer systems and was looking for a setup that took up...

An integrated amplifier and receiver, or AVR, is essentially similar names for the same type of gear. I'm only really familiar with Denon. I'd start looking at the AVR-E300 for 5.x or AVR-E400 for...

I don't know what speakers you have or whether you have an attic above your ceiling, but I would just use in-wall speakers for the ceiling instead of hanging boxes from the ceiling. I have Definitive...

Is it just me, or was anyone else hoping Kirk would spring into action and STUN them both? Either with a Type-1 phaser or with his patented karate chop to the back of the neck.

Very unlikely since the unit would need a complete DSP overhaul.That would be way more expensive than just adding an Oppo 103D for $600 that would handle 4K.

I probably don't need that much speaker, but I was thinking more on the line that the UIW series have the same drivers as my 7000SC and CLR3000. I'd like to stick with all 6.5" mids as well. I'm...

Would using DefTech UIW65 ( TM ) or UIW75 ( MTM ) ceiling-mounted for Dolby Atmos be a good idea?

I plan to build a box around these, using the joists for the sides and 3/4" MDF for the rest, in...

I'd agree about Monster as far as their cables go although I have a couple of their HDMI and speaker cables bought when Tweeter filed Chapter 11. I paid way too much, even at 60% off retail, just for...

Maybe I'm a sucker, but I like the build quality of the Monster Power surge/conditioners. The Monster HTS 1000 Mk3 is $90 on Amazon. I use both a Monster HTS 5100 Mk2 and HTS 1000 Mk3 for the various...

I'd go with the RB-61 II. They are direct-radiating and driver-match your front speakers.

I don't have a Klipsch setup, but I driver-matched my DefTech setup with very good results with nearly...

Or Slim Whitman? " Aaak! Ak, ak, aak! "

Yes. I'd see a doctor. The sound could be playing with the fluid in your ears and causing those symptoms. Loud bass will cause this sometimes but it has to...
