I've never heard of 2x6 floor joists. I've only seen 2x10 or 2x12. Maybe really short spans have those. If I had 2x6 floor joists, I would be scared to drill wire holes through them. Even so, a 9.5"...

I think you've misread the articles. Blu-Ray sales are up. Just not up as much as some would have hoped. It's total disc sales that are down because DVD sales are way down. Not too surprising as you...

I think in ceiling would be better for many reasons. One is if you sit in a typical room with a 8' ceiling and you're ears are 4' off the ground, it doesn't give the ceiling speaker much room to...

For $500+ you can do better than a legend, but not likely for less than that. You can buy a new external amp for much less than that. There's nothing really great about the legend, but it's better...

It will work fine but if you can find the same thing in RG6 instead of RG59 for around the same price, I would get that.

I have a pair of owm5. I use them for heights. They sound OK. I wouldn't use them for anything other than surround duty. One good thing about them is they're lightweight.

I don't doubt disc sales have been slowing, but it still doesn't define what you mean by decent. US automobile sales are lower now then they were in 2005. Does that mean that automobiles haven't had...

It does, but it won't double the output. The primary benefit is you'll reduce and/or eliminate nulls.

I think they'll all sound the same and the important parts are new on all of them. It's up to you if you want to save a few bucks for a blemish.

They'll produce the same sound. The difference is in how easy they are to get the wire attached and how sturdy they are. I always buy the $30/dozen kind.

Based on what I've read, they didn't drop audyssey because of licensing costs. They dropped it because they didn't have enough processing power to do both audyssey and atmos.

I don't have 8 splits. I have two amps. One has 4 outputs and the other 8. I don't use all the outputs and the ones that aren't in use are capped.
