    Hello, this is the first time I have used AVS Forums for a problem, hopefully someone can help. I have a Harman/Kardon AVR-254 that I purchased a few years ago at Goodwill for $15. For awhile it worked great, but one day, none of the front panel buttons were functional. I am currently just...

    Hi everyone, I just got a ridiculously awesome steal on some Focal Aria 948's, a CC900, and a Sub1000F and I'm looking for an amp to match. I currently am running a Marantz SR6011, which I love the sound of, but I can tell the 948's want some more juice. I'm not in a very big space right now...

    No one brand rocked AXPONA 2017 quite like Emotiva . The ambitious maker of high-performance but affordable audio gear demoed its entry-level yet audiophile-quality BasX line at the show, including a demo of a 5.1 surround system. I first heard BasX gear at CES 2017 and it left an...

    Most of the headphones I've owned over the past three decades have benefited when paired with a dedicated headphone amp versus being powered by portable devices. There are countless amp options at every price point, but in that crowded field, the Samson QH4 ($70) stands out. The new QH4 got...

    The TV's audio out does not drive the 'phones enough to hear over the helicopters overhead. I have a pair of old Creative (Cambridge Soundworks) SBS20's but the static or noise floor on these is horrendous. Please recommend a set of desktop speakers (2.0) that amplifies through the headdphone...

    Ever since Scott released the results of his experiment to find out if we could hear the difference between high res and 16/44.1k files, I've been trying to figure out how you could build a budget conscience system, that could reproduce the potential high frequencies from a 96k/24 source...
