  1. Speakers
    Hey guys, I have the Jamo 809CS as a set but I have some money now to invest in another speaker. I was thinking of upgrading my center channel to Klipsch RP-504C as most places I have been researching always suggest putting the max money onto the center channel. Would this be a good idea...
  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I know both of these receivers are discontinued -- the RX-V3800 was old news many years ago and the RX-A3070 is also discontinued. So, my RX-A3070 went on the fritz and it's going in for service (just under the wire on the 3 year warranty thankfully). I had given my RX-V3800 to my parents and...

  4. Speakers
    First time I have ever posted in a blog but need some help. Trying to get audio for my open concept family room/kitchen. Its a big space - the family room part is probably 24 feet wide (on this wall is where the TV would be), and 15 feet deep, but there is no back wall cause it opens up the...
  5. Home Theater In A Box
    Hello! This is my first post and I hope I'm in the right section. I own for some time a Sony 5.1 bdv-n8100 (2xtall + 2xsmall speakers) and I bought today the model BDV-N9200WL (white with Led's on the back of each tall speaker). As I got both of them in my living room I noticed that my old...
  6. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Could you ever go back to a 2.1 system, tv speakers or a sound bar after experiencing a 5.1 system?
  7. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hi, I've got a Denon AVC-X4700H, and since a few days it started to recognize 5.1 Signals as 7.1 (uncompressed, PCM, Bitstream) (This happens on Nintendo Switch, but also on XBox Series X) No matter if i set it to 5.1 or 7.1, the AVR always shows 7.1 This leads to the Problem that i can no...
  8. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Hello to all, I have been lurking these forums for a couple of years and always found the idea of a home theater appealing. I currently have an unfinished basement, and my family's approval to turn it into a game / mancave / home theater room. It is a pretty large room although the actual...
  9. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    So here's a rough layout of my living room: So as you can see, the TV is not parallel with the wall behind it to accommodate the seating arrangement. With that being said, how do you typically account for this in regards to speaker setup? Do I toe in the left and right speakers to point to...
  10. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hello, I'm setting up a 5.1 system and I don't really know where to put the rear side speakers for the q acoustics 5.1 cinema pack. Would love to hear your suggestions. Here's a picture of the room:
  11. Home Theater Computers
    I have an HP small form factor I use to stream youtube and play my rips. I added an AMD Radeon HD 6450 to get HDMI output. This is after I tried an NVIDIA video card. I have the same issue with both. The only option I can see is 2 channels max and stereo only. What do I do to get the PC to send...
  12. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I am unable to get any surround sound out of my system when using Netflix. I have tested Netflix apps from several different sources: Apple TV 4K, Sony DVD/CD player, and my cable DVR (VIP5662W). All these boxes produce Dolby 5.1 or PCM 7.1 or DTS 5.1 through the receiver EXCEPT when using the...
  13. Speakers
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the game and have been piecing together a 5.1 system for the basement. I have Elac Debut B6.2 for LCR and a 3010 Sub. Due to the configuration of the room, I decided to place surrounds in the ceiling. I got lucky and found a pair of Kef Ci160qr's on clearance at BB...
  14. Speakers
    In the new house we are moving into, we have a two story family room. The pics are from a similar house being built. The difference between these pics and our house is that there will be an extra opening where I marked it with red between the family room and an adjacent room. This mean there is...
  15. Audio Gear
    I'm looking for a simple S/PDIF capable 5.1 AVR with working remote. I assume DTS/DD would be supported with S/PDIF, but figure I'd mention it. Happy to pick up or ship. I should clarify that I'm really looking for like $50 "cheap". Bonus if it's got ARC, but really S/PDIF is all I need.
  16. Home Theater In A Box
    I wanted to ask if it switches on off with TV itself and can TV remote adjust its volume?, Does it support HDMI CEC in short. Also it says it supports 4k passthrough, but does it support 4k HDR passthrough?
  17. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    My new-to-me receiver (Yamaha RX-V379) does not support HDR, apparently. It's the one thing I forgot to look for when looking at used receivers. My TV (Vizio M50-D1) does HDR10. When I launched our PlayStation 4, it was immediately noticeable that HDR was not being used, and then confirmed when...

    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...
  19. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hey! I'm new to the community, and I don't know a whole lot about home theater audio in general. But basically, I'm looking for suggestions of what receivers would be compatible with my set of home audio speakers I got from my dad. The model of speakers is HTS5, and from what it sounds like I...
  20. Home Theater Computers
    After well over 7 years it was time for a new PC build. I also upgraded to Windows 10. Ever since I have been having annoying audio issues that seem to be pretty common issue for folks based on some Googling. I have an older 5.1 desktop speaker system. I've had it for years and have been...
