If it really has only 200 hours (and you verify this) then that's a great price. Cheap enough to take a chance in the IR.

Any and all IR I've had has eventually faded to the point of not being visible. That said, my TV isn't a display model, which could have been on the floor being used/abused for going on a couple of...

The "Supercharged" SongTowers use the Raal tweeter. The standard SongTowers use the dome tweeter. I'm sure Jim would build a SongTower using the stadard drivers but with a Raal tweeter as well if...

The first picture is an early ribbon tweeter model that featured LCY ribbon tweeters (if I recall correctly). The later (and current) models use the RAAL tweeter.

Yes, if you're not particular about your finish--which, given these are Salks, means you're crazy--there are some great deals to be had on second hand Salks.

Once you place your order have a doctor place you into a shallow coma for a few weeks. Waiting for the build and delivery is excruciating. :D

What a deal! I can't think of a better all in one setup for someone just building his own basement home theater, but who isn't really into music. I'd probably add another sub though.

It's possible, but only if the Denon is broken. One easy way to check is to find programming that shows the noise, then play it through the receiver & direct to the TV.

Pixel noise is dependent on source material and TV picture settings. If you aren't adjusting the individual settings you can switch from the different pre-set modes (i.e. THX Cinema, THX Day).

Ugh! Good luck. See if the store has any 900U units in stock. Depending on what they pay for the unit, they may be willing to exchange for that unit instead of issuing a refund. It's worth a shot.

I hope you kept the box. (I did, even though it's takes up a lot of space in the basement.) If not, I would detach the stand when moving--it wobbles too much as it is--and wrap the panel in lots of...

It's not a surprise that they wouldn't repair it. "Refund or replace" has been the policy regarding major issues from the very beginning. And since there are no more ZT units or spare parts, the...

Hard to tell what the defect is. Could be IR or burn in from subtitles or text of some sort. Panel damage like that probably can't be fixed, only be replaced. And since they stopped making these...

If the "black" part of the dress really is black, it must be LCD. As far as the blue goes, it looks like they calibrated it on the "Cool 2" setting.

The 60" stand and 65" stands should have the same connections--hex screws if I recall correctly--but given how wobbly the stand is, I definitely wouldn't put a 65" TV on a stand meant for a 60" model.
