I am able to adjust treble and balance on the RX-A2000 through the Android app. The Option button in the lower right hand corner (with the three dots) has the setting. You can go +/-6dB on the main...

I did the same as VARTV. I cannot understand why the remote app is more limited than the remote.

Another pet peeve of mine is that stations are only listed by preset number, so you have to...

My wife would not be happy with pitch black. She is big on being able to see the room if she needs to get up to get a drink, or something like that. I find that the right paint job is much more...

I mounted mine on a dowel rod, and the rod travels through a hole I drilled in the plaster ceiling so that I can adjust the angle in the living room. I found the ideal angle, and it worked perfectly...

Tmcc, if the price is close, I would definitely go 1030. I was going to buy the 830, but found the 2000 for a similar price used. I am so glad i got the 2000. The higher quality should make a...

Yes, rubber cement is viscoelastic. Obviously not engineered for this specific use, but that doesn't mean it won't the job. Think of all the great things you can do with WD-40 that it wasn't...

Very good point, and that is enough for me to not use it. That being said, I am still curious.... I would certainly use it for speaker construction.

I find it odd that I can't find any reviews on these Panasonic projectors:

Panasonic PT-RZ370U
Panasonic PT-RZ475U
Panasonic PT-RZ470UK
Panasonic PT-RZ470UW

I am interested in the PT-RZ370U...

What are you looking to gain going from the RX-A2700 to the 3030? Are you looking for specific features, an expanded setup? It looks like the RX-A2700 is a very complete receiver. If you have it...

I'm not sure about lossless, but the explanation I found on the enhancer is that it takes the digital signal and smooths the waves, like taking a bar chart and drawing a curve. I expected it to be a...
