$210 + sh sounds about right for the Philharmonics. I've never heard them but he buys the speakers/parts from PartsExpress.com and re-works the crossover for improved sound. The speaker is the Dayton...

RTiA's should be much, much better then the Pioneers. As they should be since they cost 3 times as much. I currently have a 5.0 set of the Pioneers and a pair of the older RTi4's. The RTi4's are very...

It reduces the 2khz, 4khz, 8khz and 16khz frequencies as a group. It reduces 2k by a tad, 4 k by a lot more, 8k by even more and 16k by a lot. It can be done in 6 steps and affects all speakers...

Just to clarify, the Signal Select button only cycles the audio input between HDMI, Digital (Optical/Coaxial), PCM and Analog. It doesn't change the video signal. Video will still be HDMI :) .

1. The 905C isn't that bad, just not quite as good as the 902's. Can't live without 5.1 music. Love my DVDA's and concert dvd's!

2. All digital music is processed to one degree or another. I...
