I'm not actually a 'new' new member, but I don't believe I've ever posted in this thread. Primarily, I've been a long time lurker - I appreciate being able to read the comments of people far more knowledgeable than myself on various A/V topics so even though I may often go months without logging in, I visit and browse anonymously pretty often. Currently I find myself trying to plan out a nice living room audio setup, so I'm back and reading a little more often.

Welcome ashore everyone!!!!!!!!





When you stop watching what they want you to watch you stop thinking what they want you to think.. Then you see a world that is nothing like they tell you it is.

Hey everyone. I've been lightly lurking for a few years. Basically, almost every Google search about various topics I was inquiring about landed me here at AVS Forum. I've been doing quite a bit of reading, but I decided that it's now time for me to pester all of you once and for all!

I picked up the hifi and home theater bug from my late father. We never had the means to do a good system at the house, but he'd always be a nut about great speakers and sound whenever we had the chance. He'd pick movie theaters based on sound, rather than the size of the screen or quality of the seats. He'd even talk other people with nice stereos into hosting parties - hilarious! He's the one who taught me how to hook up stereo equipment when I was just a little kid. I have many memories of messing around with cheap speakers with my dad, seeing what kind of crazy setups we could do in my room with a Kenwood receiver, questionable speaker wire, and random speakers we'd found in garage sales. I also distinctly remember going to Best Buy with me dad and seeing the infamous Bose demo where they cover the tiny satellite speakers with the giant fake cabinets; he said "the surround sound is fun, but the speakers only sound okay," then they removed the covers and he said "WHAT?! I gotta have this." Say what you want about Bose, but that was a funny memory!

So now I'm in a way later stage in life. My father isn't around to enjoy this stuff anymore, but I'm lucky to have a wife that is also a musician, like me, and also loves a great sounding setup. We currently have a very humble, low budget, 3.1 setup, but we love it and take pride in what we've got. The combination of things going well lately *and* some of our equipment starting to fail is motivating us to make a pretty major upgrade to our audio setup, so I started deep-diving and reading everything I could. I ended up reading tons of threads here, naturally, so here I am.

This is a great community and I'm happy to finally start participating in it.

Cheers!

Hello AVSForum,

I am new. I have a very long post I wrote up, complete with diagrams etc, but I am unable to post it due to Image and URL restrictions on new accounts.

I used this forum for a lot of the research, and I want to provide my results back to the community, as well as provide all necessary information when I reach out for assistance.

The limitation results in me being unable to do that right away. Minor inconvenience, that's why I am here to say HI!

Hi AVSforum,



I've been a lurker for a good while now and am more into audio than video. But the itch in the back of my head wants something to stream Netflix etc., so here I am, finally registered.

As in one with an interest for Rupert Neve's analog mixing boards? You might be into audio a bit then. Welcome!

So since I joined a couple months back you jerks have made me spend $1600 on audio upgrades for my home theater sound system.

Seriously though, the deals I've gotten because of this group, amazing. Waiting on the last couple pieces to arrive next week and then I'll get everything put together.

So thank you all I'm so excited!! And can't wait to start DIY subs but not ready for that quite yet. Maybe April or so.

Btw the $1600 I spent (on used equipment) retails at something like $4500.

Hi, My name is Alexandru Marius. I am an entrepreneur, youtuber and I love to write about music, web design, health & fitness lifestyle in general. I currently work in television and am a pkg producer (breaking news). I am also a professional dj, I have been working in this activity for over 20 years and I can say that I am very happy that I still do it. I really like old-school hip-hop and gangsta rap. I am a fan of 2 Pac and of course, I listen to the whole elite from those rap times including Notorious Big, Eazy E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Nate Dog and the list can go on forever.


Cheers

You'll remember when that $1600 seemed like a lot a couple years from now.

I know what you mean because when I originally built the home theater a couple years ago I started with a $600 worth of speakers and sub and that at the time was a lot....now one of my motion 40 retails for more lol

Thanks Mike, may I ask which area/thread is best to ask a classic "I cant decide between these projectors" question? they are all over 3k USD, so would it be "Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP" ?

Greetings All - We are building a new home in the Boise ID area and came here to AVS Forum to educate myself about what components we should use in our theater and other rooms in the new place. We currently have a Bowers and Wilkins 5.1 set up in our current home theater and have enjoyed it. Thinking about TruAudio and looking for recommendations on towers versus in wall set ups as well as component recommendations. Looking forward to hearing from the experts out here! Thanks.
