    I currently have a home theater system in need of updating. I just switched out the TV for a Sharp 70" Aquos 4K Ultra HD Smart TV a month ago. The next to go is the receiver. I have a Marantz SR8000, which doesn't even support HD. I plan to keep the Mirage speakers (5.1) which are the same...

  8. HDTV Technical
    Can a RF amp add visible picture noise or artifacts to a ATSC or QAM carrier/channel that one could/would actually see a difference? I got into a discussion elsewhere where someone stated he could tell the difference with a amp in line on a CATV system adding noise and artifacts to the...
