  1. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hey guys! What is the general opinion regarding Denon receivers? I’m afraid my Onkyo is starting to fail, and I’m on the market for a new receiver😭 I’ve been looking at this 4700 for a while now and can’t find any flaw with it. Does anyone who owns it have any issues with the unit, or can...
  2. Speakers
    I’m looking for a pair of speakers for a vinyl player. I’ll mostly be listening to jazz, and I’m looking for a warm sounding speaker. Generally with a flat sound stage. Clean and defined Bass but not overbearing and boomy, even and smooth mids, and and clean treble without being harsh. All at...
  3. Speakers
    I'm thinking to upgrade my current elac setup (Elac unifi LCR) for HT purpose. They sounded fine for music listening but l felt they lacked the ability to handle movie scenes with large dynamic range. Also I felt the vocal clarity from the center was a bit muddled. I decided to upgrade to...

  5. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I recently upgraded to a LGCX55 and LG SN5Y (bluetooth) soundbar. It's a bit stunning coming from a 10+ year old Sanyo 27" TV but I'm constantly fiddling with the volume control on the remote and it's driving me a little nuts. On my Sanyo, I had a Terk volume leveler[1] plugged in which I was...

    Hello All, First post! So I'm looking for some advice on Home Theatre Setup. Actually looking to determine if what we did is salvageable in any way. I've recently completed a semi-dedicated home theatre setup in my new finished basement. I had an audio friend helping me complete the setup...
  8. Speakers
    Obligatory "I'm a total noob". I've been meaning to build a 5.1.x setup for myself for awhile now, and it seems I'm finally in a position to do it. I intend to start with a 3.1 setup initially, and keep adding speakers until I hit the right config. I live in a high rise building with limited...

    Hello everyone :) I've had a Sony EDV-6100 Home Theater system for a few years and I'm looking to upgrade. I've been looking up soundbars and especially ones with wireless speakers because cable management is really difficult in my living room. For example, the Samsung HW Q950T or the LG...

    Hey everyone! This has been my limiting factor to get into projectors. I have been looking for UST projectors due to renting currently but that is beyond the point.

  16. Local HDTV Info and Reception
    Well, the WHAS-DT thread has lived its life, I think, and it's time for a general thread given the news now that Insight might be offering HD over cable by EOY. I'll start off by saying I think my phone call to WHAS worked! Watching their 6pm newscast on the digital channel in 4:3! No more...
