  1. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hey everyone, I'm trying to find the best "budget" projector available. But I've found 3 with the same price and good reviews and don't know how to choose between them and maybe you guys with your expertise over this matter would be able to help me. * VANKYO Leisure 470C Native 720P Projector...
  2. 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...
  3. Speakers
    Just moved into a newly built apartment, a 500sq ft studio with fairly good acoustics, solid walls and laminate floors. I want to get a decent little stereo in here (for music) but there’s so many options. My initial thoughts are a set of andrew jones FS52, and something like a Dayton Audio...
  4. Plasma Panels
    $200 priced to sell. It saddens me to let go of but I'm upgrading and will need the space. The TV is in excellent+ cosmetic and working condition. It has ISF Day & Night and Game modes calibrated by D-Nice. The ISF modes are a big step up from the default Pure mode. It has no dead pixel and no...
  5. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hello, I have been looking for a place to ask this question and hopefully I have found the right audience to ask. I work in a rural area with no radio signal (even AM gives us trouble). We have excellent wifi however. We use an antiquated radio for holding music where I work and I noticed it...
  6. DIY Speakers and Subs
    My wife and I have been using an old (neighbors gifted it to us when they upgraded) phillips HTIB setup for the past decade and have not felt the need to upgrade (and really couldn't afford to) until just recently. I picked up a pair of cheap Pioneer front speakers with a center speaker and a...
  7. Headphones
    I am looking to purchase a set of head phones for the gym, in this case cheap is more important as they will inevitably get sweaty and damaged in due time. I can't distinguish which model of the MPOW headphones are the best, but they all meet my price point (I have Bose QC's for daily use so...
  8. DIY Speakers and Subs
    So first let me say my initial goal was to build a decent pair of speakers for under/around $40. I have reasonable expectations for this project, and I know for $30-40 there is only so much I can do, (I've done some DIY previously) but I already have an extra stereo amp, and a nice birch plank...

  10. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Ok, I am looking at getting an inexpensive AVR for my sister. Currently she is using a pair of Dayton B652's on an old Aiwa 4.1 receiver of mine. The plan is to flesh out a 5.1 Dayton system with the C452, a pair of the B452's and maybe even a SUB-1000 if she'll agree to it. :) Right now I am...

  12. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I've got a nice little stereo setup for my bedroom (an Onkyo TX-8050 receiver with PSB B5 bookshelves), and I'm looking to upgrade what's easily the weakest link: the subwoofer, which is currently taken from my old Energy Take Classic system. Some info: the room is a moderately-sized bedroom...
  13. DIY Screen Section
    Been surfing the AVS threads for about a week now searching for the best screen paint that doesn't require complicated mixing and it seems like everyone has different opinions and there seems to be a lot of arguing and disagreement in the threads relating to this topic. Some people suggest...
  14. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    I am a new DIY homeowner leaning all kinds of new things, like how much I hate footsteps living on the first floor of the house. I have done quite a bit of reading to learn to address this and there seems to be conflicting remedies. FYI I am poor(ish), so this is on a budget for sure AND I will...
  15. HTPC Computer Items
    Hello everyone! I've got a bunch of brand new in box LGA 1150 motherboards in stock, vestiges of an operation that never took flight. I've been told that you guys could put these tiny motherboards to good use :) Aside from how minimalist and sleek it is, it features FIVE PCIE 1x slots and one...
  16. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi, I am a noob to projectors. I had been using Samsung SP-H03 pico projector for watching movies and such until recently, since it started to show stars on the projected screen - stuck micromirrors on the DLP. I might be moving to a house where I intend to buy a TV or a decent projector, so...

Can any of you experts suggest me some good speakers (all 7 under USD 2000) along with a sub (under USD...
