  1. Soundbars
    Hey guys, Which one would you choose from those two 2.1 soundbars? The Samsung A550 and LG SN5 both cost the same right now here. I'd upgrade from a Creative Stage V2 and would use them in a small apartment room. Main need is a good dynamic range control without ruining dialogue or highs, as...
  2. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Not in the market currently, just making comparisons. Per CEA 2010 results on data-bass.com, JTR has slight advantage below the teens, and Rythmik has slight advantage above. Overall pretty similar Db performance, cost, and even size. Which would you choose?

    Obviously the RZ50 is better... but does it sound noticeably better given the speakers I'm using? I've got the Onkyo TX-NR676 but I'm having a few issues with passthrough on a Plex setup. Not deal-breaking issues but if there's a noticeably better setup that resolves them I'd be game. I've...
  4. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I always see YouTubers comparing the Klipsch r-115sw to higher end SVS subs like the pb 3000 and 16 ultra, which just isn't fair and the results will be obvious. The pb 1000 pro is much more similar in power, output, and cost. I know the Klipsch has the bigger driver and cabinet and that svs has...
  5. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Hi all, This is my first post here and I'm still new to all of this so I apologize if I come off as an absolute boob, it's because I probably am! My wife and I are in the process of renovating our downstairs. There was previously a dedicated media space which was transformed into a home gym...

    So, with the release of the SVS PB-1000 pro, it seems to me that the HSU VTF-2 Mk5's crown is up for grabs. Sure there are lots and lots of subs out there in the range of $500-$600. But the VTF-2 Mk5 was, IMO the clear leader at this price point since its release. But now the SVS PB-1000 Pro...
  7. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    My observations & questions on side-by-side comparison of the two 85 inch Sony TVs -- I did this at home -- Picture looks brighter in X850G vs. X900H, with exact same settings in both units. This is true in vivid mode max brightness as well. Is this expected? What makes older model outperform...
  8. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    If anyone has any questions or wants me to do any specific comparisons before one goes back, let me know. TL;DR: I had both the TCL Q825 and Vizio 2019 PQX (PX75-G1). For my use case and preferences (strictly movie/tv shows, some bright daylight usage but mostly dark room), I prefer the TCL...
  9. Speakers
    Hi folks, I am torn between the KEFQ750 and the Paradigm 700f. I am leaning towards the paradigms. Which one has more ummmpfff or bass to it. I've read that the KEF is more laid back and I know the answer is to demo, but I am not in a position to do so. Room setup: not a dedicated theater...

    2019 Mid-Higher End, Big LCD models. Comparison, Reviews, and discussion Like many users here, we seem to be (figuratively) running around with our heads chopped off trying to decide on what TV model to buy, if any at all, this year.

My current room is 19x17x9 (2907sqft) It opens into a larger area making it 6000sqft or close to it. I'm currently running a Bowers...

    I have a living room (approx. 14'x15' w/ 8' ceiling) with a 7' projector screen in the middle, and I'm looking to set up some speakers for music (30%) and TV/movies (70%). I have four options in front of me, all available for basically the same price (~$300): Klipsch Synergy Quintet II Home...
  15. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Hi all - I am super confused as to which one of these two TV's to purchase. I've read all the reviews and each one of them, independently sound great. However, I do not know how these two TV's stack up compared to each other. I also have not been able to find a side by side comparison of the...
  16. Speakers
    So I had a ~$1000 budget to greatly upgrade my front speakers. Through a little bit of research I managed to narrow my search to: KEF LS50 ELAC UF5 Klipsch RP-280F SVS Ultra Bookshelf I purchased the first three on Amazon and the SVS direct from SVS for their fantastic 45-day in-home trial...
  17. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Hello guys! Thanks for taking the time to help. I want to buy a 5.1 sound system to watch movies and listen to music at home, with Samsung UN60KU630DFXZA UHD with HDR TV. I am willing to spend up to $450. But I would like to know the best option for the price, if the sound would drastically...

I just did so, one reason being I need some immediate advice on an amp that I would like to purchase for my home audio setup. First of all, my budget is anot very high and so naturally I am looking at the...
  19. Screens
    I begin this review by saying that I am not a newbie about Ambient Light Rejection (ALR) Screens. Since 2013, I follow the evolution of the famous Black Diamond screens (by seeing and comparing samples of them) and, in 2014, I bought the Zebra screen, considered the state of the art in terms of...
