  1. Speakers
    LCR - Focal Aria 926 w/ CC900 Center I'll be using my existing JBL 530's for rears and have a sub as well. The aria's unfortunately are out of stock everywhere so it's given me pause to think about whether these speakers are worth the money. I've listened to them in person and I do like them...

    Hi everyone. As the title states, I have a pair of KEF Q150 bookshelves which I love and got on sale a while back. Mainly I really enjoy the stereo imaging and the soundstage. I think they lack a little bass on their own but they sound amazing with a subwoofer which any home theater setup will...

  7. OLED Technology and Flat Panels General
    I'm looking to pick up an OLED to use with PS5, Series S, Switch and PC. I’ll be upgrading from a 46” 2012 Hitachi Plasma (basically a rebranded Panasonic VT2) which I will be keeping as a secondary TV for 3D among other things. My main reasons for upgrading are HDR/VRR/120Hz/4K in that order...
  8. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Ok so I am a researcher, and I am feeling extremely overwhelmed... holy hell I can’t remember the last time I flipped flopped on a decision this much! We use our tv 100% for streaming (Netflix, Disney+, Prime, Spectrum App) with Apple TV 4K. No gaming. And it will be wall mounted with my Sonos...
  9. Rear Projection Units
    I am in the market to buy the JVC RS2000 to upgrade my home theater. I can't wait. But I don't want to needlessly waste money if it was a better option to buy online. I don't know! Need some help in understanding my pro's and con's on this. Nobody, rich or poor want to waste money. Can I...

  11. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi, I hope there's people here that are into the lower end stuff since I mostly see posts about the nicer end of the projector range. I got an okay Optoma but I don't feel like moving that on a daily basis so for the bedroom I figured I'd just get a very low budget low lumen projector to throw a...
  12. Speakers
    --EDIT-- I've purchased two VTF-15H subs and 3 CCB-8s. I've purchased RSL speakers for everything else to take advantage of their free trial policy. 3 CG25s up front, 4 CG3 for bookshelves, then their in ceiling options for Atmos speakers. My thoughts are I'll go with Hsu for front and subs, RSL...
  13. Screens
    I'm looking for a 110" 16:9 screen to go with (likely) the Epson 5050UB. We're installing blackout shades in the room, but it's not perfect as far as light control goes (walls are a light gray, ceiling is white). Will be a 17.5' throw. I'm looking for the cheapest screens for now to get...
  14. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Looking for any advice on what to buy. We have a room that's not perfect for a home theater, but we're going to try to make it work. It has a vaulted ceiling and a few windows, but I'm getting black-out roller shades to try to control the light. The room is 19'x15.5'. I'm looking to get a...
  15. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Hi everyone, I have a 65" curved Samsung 4K (3D...) LED which is still a very nice television, but it lacks HDR, and I could go bigger so I'm getting the upgrade bug. I'm pretty locked into the QLEDs. We have a bright room with one very long wall so we have room to spare for a tv (though likely...
  16. Speakers
    Considering getting a new center channel speaker to go with two Klipsch R-15M speakers. Larger speakers with a lot of power handling are out of my range, not because of price but because of size. I can't go wider than 20 inches on my center channel. So I'm looking between the R-25C from 2014...
  17. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hi guys, my old Onkyo SR608 has served me well over the last 8 years, but now that I've made the switch to 4K, using it exclusively with ARC is starting to annoy me. So I'm looking for a new AVR to replace it, and after some research I've narrowed it down to the Denon AVR-X3500H and the Yamaha...
  18. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hello, I'm looking for a mini stereo receiver to match to power two passive speakers. (info below) My price range is up to about $200 but would prefer not to spend more than I have to. Klipsch RSX-3 Power Handling: 40 watts (160 watts peak) Impedance: 8ohms compatible Bandwidth: 116Hz-20kHz...
  19. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hello AVS Forum, I just bought a new 65" 4K tv for my new home theater and it's time to upgrade my old HT receiver. I'm upgrading from a Onkyo HT-S590 (2006) which has given me 11 years of reliable performance. I have some questions about my particular setup and what features I need from the...
