This a form of copy deterrent Lion's Gate is using to "fool" ripping software. It is called obsfucation. What I do is put the disc in my player and enter chapter mode. I write down the start times of...

I actually thought about this when I was installing the DefTech UIW-75. My back surrounds are DefTech UIW BPZ/A, which are a dual coaxial design with each coaxial speaker canted at 15° left/right of...

Yep. The satisfyingly robust click of mechanical relays switching on/off amp channels. Kind of like having a cheap membrane PC keyboard vs. one with Cherry mechanical switches.

I have nothing good to say about most of the budget speakers in this thread and the folks reviewing the Dayton stuff on Amazon would agree. Even the half-way decent Micca speakers are way over your...

I adjust each sub to as close to 78dB as I can using Audyssey SubEQ then run a calibration. I go back into SubEQ and set each sub to somewhere around 83dB and just ignore the warning and exit out of...

Yep. Driver-match. If I HAD a wife, the WAF for my system would be a pretty big negative number. Right now I'm conducting the AGT ( Acceptable Girlfriend Test. ) She's a keeper if she likes what I've...

Maybe I'm just used to having Front Height since I've been using DTS Neo:X for such a long time, but I didn't notice anything pop out running Atmos. Now, the TOP is a different matter entirely. It...

I usually recommend building a setup with a budget that low. Start with 2.0 and work your way up. The Pioneer speakers aren't half bad and you can piece together a system over time. Studio Monitors (...

BP7000SC, CLR3000, JBL L7, SM-55, UIW BPZ/A, UIW-75, EoSone RSR-350. Almost everyone recommends coaxial speakers for the top, but I'm getting good results with the UIW-75. I didn't think the DI 6.5...

You're good to go leaving the SM-350 in the Front Height position. Just add some speakers in the ceiling over your MLP and maybe another pair of SM-350 in Back Height position -- as an option. You'll...

I think the SA-250 is just a more affordable option for a 2-channel setup without going XPR. It slides in right between the XPR-2 and XPA-2. Guess Emotiva has to do something with the leftover...

Kept the grilles on the L7's when they were my main speakers. Now it doesn't matter whether I use the grilles or not since they are at 90° L&R. Wish DefTech made some direct radiating floor-standers...

I don't believe in having any type of AV gear in my bedroom as the bedroom is for sleeping, not watching TV.

I'd probably go with something small, like the Energy Take Classic and the smallest sub...

Enjoyed Divergent and waiting for the Insurgent 3D Blu to arrive. Not sure what I'd do with the X5200 though since I already have an X7200WA. ;)

I use KnuKonceptz CL3 Kable. Their 10 gauge wire can make a loop 1.5" in diameter. I don't have their 12 gauge wire, but I suspect it will work better than Monoprice wire since it is very high strand...

Purely speculation on my part based on current and past Denon receivers. The X7200W/WA gave up the more efficient toroid for an E&I and the UL plate on the receiver states 780 watts. Even if the...

I think the UPA-200 would be a little wasted on running the Atmos speakers. I doubt the x7200 would deliver more than 50-60 watts/channel with all 9 driven. It wouldn't hurt to hook up the UPA-200 to...
