  1. HD Radio
    Hi all, I got an Integra TUN-3.7 on eBay as an open box deal I got it because I like the Integra version better as I like the blue/white color VFD and round button Vs the bright green VFD and square buttons on the Onkyo version. It has the HD Radio card which from what I understand was an option...
  2. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    There is definitely some hushbox knowledge out there but it is scattered around a bunch of different build threads so I thought I would create a thread for people to share their design and building ideas. Some thoughts for sub topics: Materials- what should we be building our hushboxes out of...
  3. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I have three small USB fans available to cool my new Denon AVR. Wondering whether it's more efficient to place the fans (on top) so they (i) force air into the unit, (ii) exhaust air out of the unit, or (iii) stagger the fans (e.g. two forcing air in, one pulling air out - or one in, two out)...

It seems like PC fans are the usual solution, but I'm wondering if taking the back panel off completely and replacing it with a light...

  8. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Hey guys. I recently set up a data closet, I have a Server, HTPC, Xbox 360, Wii, and networking equipment in there, as well as a BDDVD/Surround unit. For the most part, cooling hasn't been an issue, most of the heat rises above the equipment and it stays around 80 degrees. I always knew I...
