     I Have a HK 3490 stereo receiver that powers a pair of old B&W DM 602 S1 speakers. The receiver I purchased about 3 years ago. I have mainly 2 problems that occured in time. 1st is the volume knob that started to behave randomly. Well I think is not a big deal , using the remote the volume...

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for your opinion. I recently purchased a set of Definitive Technology BP8Bs. The intention is to use them for 2 channel music play. I want my system to be Airplay enabled, as all my music is either on my Mac or my iPhone. High quality playback is important to me...

     I'm new to Bose 901's (and no, I won't be convinced to sell them because people think they're terrible).   I'm looking at receivers and the Harman Kardon 3390 or 3490 seem the most appealing.  These have the pre out/main in necessary for the 901's.   Interestingly, Harman Kardon just...

    My setup is a Samsung plasma hooked up to a Hk 3490 connected to a couple pioneer floorstandings. Also connected are a turntable, dvd player and sub. Yesterday, when I turned the receiver on, I was surprised to hear no sound, and when I increased the volume to - 20 dB, a muddy hissing began to...

    I am in the process of getting a set of bookshelf speakers and a receiver to go along with my Thorens turntable. My audio guy has a Yamaha 675 for 599.00 and a set of Kef Q300 bookshelf speakers for $680. The one downside is there is nowhere in my city where I can listen to the Kefs. From what...

     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...

     Hey everyone,   I'm currently searching for a good speaker system for music, and my research thus far has pointed me towards a 2.0 or 2.1 setup. I'll be running it from my desktop in my bedroom. My music selection is mainly rock, metal and electronic, and my budget is about $800 (AUD).  ...

    Hope the receiver forum is appropriate for this question. My main system utilizes two energy eswv10/vsw10 subwoofers. These are 10" subs with 300w bash plate amps. They are able to go down to 23hz within +/-3db. The bash amp in one has suddenly failed producing almost no output, the other is...

    Last night I was listening to my 2.1 system and had a different experience that I normally do. Normally, I listen and moderate to low volumes and for the most part think my system sounds wonderful. However last night I had the itch to really turn things up a bit. I turned on Stevie Ray Vaughn...
