    Hello All, I have a Klipsch 5.1 Dolby Atmos reference system attached to Pioneer VSX-933 receiver. I am getting echo in my speakers as well as I see a lip sync issue too. What could be the issue? Thanks for the help.

    I'm currently remodeling a bathroom and I would like to add in-ceiling speakers, like the Polk RC60i. I want to run the speaker wire down the wall and into a wall box that will sit behind the vanity, and plug in an Amazon Echo Input to it in order to easily stream music to it. I'm looking for a...

    Hi all, First of all, thank you for checking out my thread! We just moved in and I’ve managed to put together a basic setup so far. I still haven’t decided how should I get rid of the very intense reverb in the most professional and budget way while keeping aesthetics in mind. How would you...

    Hi all, is it a bad idea to get leather couches in a home theater? I figure they would reflect sound more than cloth couches.

    Looking for an inexpensive way to get into high-fidelity streaming stereo music listening? The new Ai40 powered aptX Bluetooth bookshelf speakers ($199.99) from Fluance are a nice 2-way option that cover the basics in terms of connectivity, while dispensing with unnecessary frivolities to keep...

    It had to happen. Voice control of music is here. So, I searched in Speakers (the only logical location as of now) and could not find any thread on this subject. This thread should focus on Alexa and all the AV devices it works on. That would be all the Amazon Echo speakers, Sonos and other...

    The various articles that I have written about CEDIA 2017 in San Diego collectively do not capture what was surely the biggest news at the show: The complete embrace of Amazon Alexa as the voice assistant of choice, and the Echo Dot as the physical device of choice, for controlling anything and...

    In what may be one of the most significant disruptions in the lifestyle audio segment of the AV universe, Amazon has announced a new feature for its Alexa powered echo devices: multi-room audio. Now, users can play their tunes on the device or group of devices they choose including the Echo...

    Yesterday was the first day that Amazon's influence on Whole Foods was felt across the country. And while I had expected to find the discounted avocados I read about, what really struck me was the first thing I saw as I walked through the door of my local store: A pile of Amazon Echo and...

    HDMI issue with older Blu-Ray player, HDR10 and Pioneer VSX-LX302. First off, the LX302 manual states that all 6 of the back HDMI inputs and the front HDMI input support/use Copyright protection technology: HDCP1.4/HDCP2.2. I have no issues with PS4, XBONE and 360 game systems. However, when...

    Hello everyone. I was wondering if, from a subjective point of view, the Echo Dot sounds better and gets louder than the speaker on the iPhone 6. I imagine that it does, but I wanted to make sure before I purchase one. Thank you.

    Today TV provider DISH announced two significant pieces of Amazon related news. Customers using DISH's Hopper DVR or Wally HD Satellite receiver can enjoy hands-free control thanks to direct compatibility with Amazon Alexa. All you have to do is add an Amazon Echo , Echo Dot, or Tap device...

    Hello there! First up, I did try searching but couldn't find anything that answered my queries. Apologies if this has already been answered a million times before! So I have a Denon 2112CI receiver. I have PS4 connected to the 'Game 2' Input. Now, I recently bought an Amazon Echo and to play...

    Hi All, I'm new to home automation and I’m looking at a few things to make my life easier/geekier. I’d like a way of turning on the TV using a voice command, but I’m not sure how to do this. I’ll go through my current equipment and thoughts: LG Smart TV (can find the model if needed) Always on...

    It took a lot of trial and error (and some defective devices), but I'm finally getting some useability out of my system. In case this might be useful for folks trying to put together something similar, I'm posting this here - Lighting is largely Philips Hue (>40 Philips Hue / Hue Lux /...

    So you know how when you are in the car with navigation and you are listening to the radio and the navigation voice will chime in and reduce the radio sound while it talks, then restores the audio to its normal volume? I need a way to do this at home. In the wake of all the new home voice...

    Wife up and bought an Alexa (Amazon Echo). Nice, but I want it to work with my whole house audio. I bought a Fire TV and hooked it to my AVR but Alexa and Fire don't work together like I imagined. It seem like an obvious application to me. Is anyone working on this?

    Is there a straight forward way to connect the Amazon Echo to Lutron Homeworks? I've written scripts that control the Lutron lighting directly, so I suppose I could implement my own IFTTT gateway, but I'm kind of hoping someone has done that already... any thoughts?

    I'm looking into a new setup for the upstairs living room / dinning area. Its about 400square feet with laminate floors and has a bit of an echo compared to other carpeted rooms in the house. You can't tell there is an echo in normal conversation, but when talking on the phone, the person on...
