    Afternoon all, I'm a noob to the avr/stereo/home cinema world - I'm currently running a cheap and cheerful stereo setup and looking to upgrade to 5.1 surround. The room isnt that big, so I'm not looking for something with megawatts of output. The room already had 4 ohm speakers installed so...

    Hello, I am trying to build a 5.2.2 or 5.1.2 system and I already own the Denon AVR S760H. I have $2500 left and I would love to see how you guys would go about it. I can upgrade the speakers in the future but what is the best way to spend $2500.

  10. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms

My wife and I are building a home and this will be the first time we have somewhat of a dedicated area for media enjoyment. Having said that, this will definitely not be a dream setup or a dedicated room, but...

    Hi guys, So I'm in the market for a new AVR and I'm looking at Denon at the moment. Both the Denon AVC-X3700H and the Denon AVC-X4700H are having my interest, but I'm leaning towards the AVC-X4700H. The AVC-X4700H is only 200 EUR (230 US dollar) more expensive, but has more power. I'm in...

    Hello all, I'm in the process of converting from 5.1 to 5.1.4 and have been trying to determine the best compromise for an imperfect room to incorporate the height speakers. Since the heights will be in-ceiling, the placement will be semi-permenant. Diagram 1 is the entire placement map and...

    Hi. I'm building my first HT. My setup right now is 3.1 with Wharfedale Diamond 12.1, 12C for LCR. I love how they sound but I don't like that there is only one sweet spot and I rarely listen alone. For music, I can upmix with AVR to use the center channel. But for movies, which is my priority...
