The Playbar is the only Sonos speaker designed for use with a TV/home theater. The only way you could get TV sound into any Sonos speaker other than a Playbar would be the Line In on the Play 5. ...

I agree with you on the 9UK. Its just a very CLEAN picture. I don't have any problem watching daytime sports on my old 50PH9UK even when I have a Kuro KRP-500m in the other room, as long as I can...

No offense, but I think you have a long wait ahead of you. Buy a 64" F8500, cross your fingers and hope you don't get a buzzing panel.

That Bose doesn't have a subwoofer or rear speakers.

If the R series sound is as good or better than the Vizio 54" 5.1 soundbar, it will be a real achievement for TV sound. ...

If my memory is correct, I think I have two 50' HDMI runs and one 40' HDMI run. I also have ~70' Cat 5e. I'm using a J-Tech Digital extender that I bought on amazon a while back. So far, its...

Apparently there are not many AVSers look for mid-range priced matrix switchers. I ended up buying another monoprice 4x4 matrix switch and it was worse than my original. Constant blackouts, pink...

I don't have a big problem with omitting Lady Stoneheart. I never really though much of that storyline and it will be fun to see how they fill the gaps with the other characters like Brienne and...

For me, the turning point was Season 3 when they went on a vacation to Hawaii. Wait, that was the Brady Bunch. SAMCRO went to Ireland.

I'm curious to hear what fans think of the "snub"? I consider myself a casual fan of the show. I watch and enjoy it, but I personally don't think its deserving of any Emmys. To be honest, there...
