     Looking for some feedback on a few AVRs I'm comparing.  I'd be up for paying for more features if they are worth it but I'd like to keep cost down.  I'd like to keep it below 600.  I'm looking for refurbished and used as well as new. The models listed below I found for below $600.    I'll be...

    I've got an issue and I can't figure out what the cause is. I'll try to keep this short and sweet. Here's what I'm working with: EMP e55ti (and e56ci; e5bi's) Denon 1712 (from A4L) When I use my SPL meter, using 1/3 octave pink noise from a Alan Parsons disc or Autosound discs or...

    Folks, I'm having a bit of a problem decided on the next move in my setup. As per my agreement with the wife I am allowed to make a single upgrade to my system per year. This year I will be making my upgrade sometime around June, so I've started the process of trying to decide what I want...

    I am redoing my basement....will be using an 18x16' alcove with 8' ceilings that connects to the rest of the full size basement. I had originally thought of doing 5.1 but think 2.1 will be just fine for me. 75% TV and Movies, balance music played while working out. There are so many options...

    Hey all, For the last few years I've been working on upgrading all of my speakers. So far I've replaced the sub, the mains, and (just last week) the center. Sometime next year (likely the later half) I would like to do my surrounds. I'm currently running a 7.1 system which is used about 80%...

    I'm looking for a nice set of Fronts or possibly Fronts + a Center. These will be used for tv/movies/ and LOUD electronic music. I'd like to either get a budget pair that will sound nice and get very loud (under 400). Or possibly something around 2k (just for the L/R). I eventually will be...

    I am currently in the market for new speakers/subwoofer to fill my 15x20x10 media room. After researching options in my price range I have decided on two sets of speakers, deciding factors were price, positive professional reviews and aesthetics. I would like to get some input from those that...

    I have an order placed with Emp Tek for a speaker package I got on their Black Friday sale. They haven't been shipped and I now see that there is what appears to be a good sale on the Polk RTi12's. The price of the Emp Tek package and the Polk package would be almost identical. So, how do...

    How do Klipsch 62's, Ascend 340's, and EmpTek 55/56 compare? I've only owned Klipsch so far so I'm not worried about the harshness that some have problems with since I don't think I notice it. This is more about my curiosity in general than it is about me buying something in the near future.

    Ok, so in trying to finalize my setup this weekend. I am looking at a a Denon X4000 and either 1 or 2 FV15HP's. How much of a difference would I notice between the Emp Tek's and the Klipsch? Never having had a higher-end system, I don't know what Id be missing. Thoughts, tips, advice or...

    Looking to buy a surround sound for a room. I thought that there may be some deals on some quality equipment over the next week or so. Has anyone seen anything that looks attractive? I heard that NHT had some great deals last year on black Friday. Thoughts?

     I'm looking to buy a receiver for the pair of Emp Tek E55Ti's that are on their way here.    This is mainly for classical music listening but also for movies. 80% music, 20% movies. So sound quality is the most important consideration (I'll probably buy a dedicated cd player rather than a...

     I just placed an order for a pair of Emp Tek E55Ti's. I intend to use them primarily for 2 channel music listening (classical, jazz and classic rock primarily). I would also like to use them with my LED TV for the occasional movie (I might add a sub at some point later but I don't have plans...

     I thought I'd start a new thread for this though I've asked this question in the Emp owners thread.    So I just ordered a pair of Emp Tek E55Ti's. I intend to use these mainly for 2 channel classical music but would also like to use these with my Samsung LED smart TV for the occasional...

     I am a newbie and I recently purchased my very first speakers...a pair of "demoed" RTIA9 tower speakers for $825 from Fry's.  I have 3 weeks left to audition them before the 30day return expires for a full refund.  I have a budget of $2500 but also used $600 towards a Harman Kardon 3700...

     I'm looking to put together my 1st home theater system and I took some suggestions of others to look on my local craigslist/ebay for a good set of used speakers.  I'm probably just going to get a set of floor standing towers to start with, so I want a pair that are full range and can stand on...

    Hi, I am currently using 2 JBL Century L100's that I'm giving to my Dad. What should I be looking at that will be equivalent to the sound from my JBL's? As long as they match or exceed what I have now, then I would be happy. I am also looking to stay under $800/pair, any recommendations would...
