I've bought two sets of hex screws and still haven't found one that'll fit and enable me to open up my Veritas 5.2C. I was certain it would be a 9/64 but I just got home with one and it also doesn't...

Thank you, I see that you're right about the Allen screws. I'll buy a screwdriver this weekend and open it up.

I have a problem with my Veritas 5.2C that I bought new in box from an eBay seller 8 months ago. The sound is muffled and lacking highs. It's intermittent though, and last night I was able to make it...

Mine does it too. It keeps changing for about 90 minutes. To avoid the worst I usually make sure to turn it on at least 30 minutes in advance.

I went to Home Depot, found some waferboard, and had them cut it to 17"x19". I then spray-painted it and attached three shelf brackets, also from Home Depot. It was both cheap and easy but I'd...

I redboxed Jupiter Ascending yesterday. I feel that I deserve a medal for making it through 30 minutes before giving up and turning it off. It was just bad all around; stiff acting, a complete mess...

I'm curious: what are acceptable character types for you? Obviously actors and/or people with mental issues are not on your list. Who is?

You'll probably want to stay clear of Mulholland Drive. I...

Thanks Randall, very much appreciated. No need though, I've already had the measuring tape out to see if I have space for them. I should be able to squeeze them in.
