Not my experience at all. I have owned several Onkyo prepros and been very happy with their reliability and performance. I upgraded through the years from the 885 to 886 to 5507 and am using a 5508...

Hi,

I've had a RS46 for about a year now and watch a good bit of 3D on it. Given that my HT is a bat cave, I've been pleased with the PQ in 3D. I run mine on a Silverticket AT 120" screen and it...

I bought a 120" AT screen and had similar issues. It appeared that the fabric was improperly sewn and/or heat sealed with puckers embedded in the seam. (Pix in this thread above) No way to get it...

As I recall, THX is verification that the gear can provide a certain level of volume to a room of a specific size. Doesn't have anything to do with sound quality, just volume.

Hi. I've owned all of the Onkyo processors from the 885 to the 5508, now. The 886 was a big increase in sound quality from the 885, as I recall. The 5507 offered better Audyssey capability, which is...

There is a link in this thread that allows you to type in the serial number and find out if the unit is covered. Seems like I posted it once, so you may want to search by my user ID to find it.

At your size, the costs of a PJ and screen start to stack up well against a larger flat panel TV. A 70" or 80" flat panel TV may give you a better picture at around the same price.

Replacement bulbs can be had in the $100-$150 range or less if you shop around. I've bought 2 'real' OEM JVC bulbs, NIB in the last few months in that price range. $3000 plus can be spent from a...

A good rule of thumb for screen vertical position is to position the screen so 1/3rd is below eye level and 2/3rds is above. Too high (ala above the fireplace) and the viewers' necks get sore. Too...

Accuscreens 106" Acoustically Transparent Screen

Used, very good condition. Breaks down for easy shipping, so the freight costs are not restrictive. I went to 120" when I bought a new projector.

I think so. There's a capability to set up a 'for trade' list, and some other stuff I didn't dig too deeply into on the site. Don't know if the app supports it, but probably does.
