  1. Home Theater In A Box
    Hi! I’m preparing a small home theater (13 ft x 13 ft) and the thing is this: I LOVE OLD MOVIES. I’m not really convinced of getting a 5.1 or Atmos because most of the movies that I watch are mixed in mono or stereo. For all those big new blockbusters that can push the boundaries of a home...

    Hi all, I am looking to upgrade from a Sony STR-DN840. My budget is about $600 but willing to budge a little. I have been looking at the Denon AVR-S960H, Yamaha RX-V6A, and Sony STR-DN1080. They all seem like they will work for me. The things I want to be able to do (which I am unable to do...

    Hi I currently own a Marantz MCR611 and plan to upgrade it to a 5.1 system. I currently have two KEF Q350s and an SVS PB1000. My surround will be my "old" Boston Accoustics A25. I don't have a center sepaker yet, but I'm still looking at it. Which brand and model do you recommend? Before my...

    Hi, As you all know likely know, TVs with support for HDMI 2.1 were presented already at CES 2019, and are becoming available in the shops now. Despite that we've heard more or less nothing about AVRs with support for HDMI 2.1. Isn't that strange? Will they not be presented until CES 2020 -...

    I'm moving to a house and looking at getting a nice high quality 2.1 setup if towers alone don't suffice and one that I can eventually expand later to possibly 4.1 or 5.1. I'm kind of new to high quality audio, so as of right now, I don't have any preamps or amps or any major equipment so...

    Hello, Let me start by saying that I’m quite a novice when it comes to audio stuff / speaker design. I’m going to build a 2.1 Bluetooth speaker. I want a relatively small speaker but aim for pretty good sound especially for the size of the speaker. So far I have selected a few components but I...

    Does anyone have experience with Inline RCA form-factor high pass filters - like the FMOD Inline Crossovers from Harrison Labs? I want to keep deep bass frequencies from reaching the bookshelf/satellite main speakers.

  15. 2-Channel Audio
    Two-way, pro-audio style speakers with horn-loaded compression-driver tweeters are among my favorite speaker configurations. With its MT-110 bookshelf-style speakers ($675 each), Power Sound Audio takes a proven design and refines it for home use. The result is an industrial-looking speaker...

    I was waiting on buying a Klipsch system because of their reputation for quality, but after a few months I got impatient. I bought a pair of vintage Polk Audio RTA-12B floor standing speakers (I paid $150 but they retailed at about $1000 30 years ago). I also have a 12 inch Jamo subwoofer that I...

    Im looking at a solid 2.1 with about a $1000 budget. It'll be about 90/10 favoring HT. But when I do listen to music, it's mostly Rock. I sampled the B&W 686, Martin Logan monitor and Def Tech, at my local Best Buy. There just isn't a decent HiFi store in my area. And of those 3, at similar...
