  1. Speakers
    Hey everyone! So in the past I've always used "gaming speakers" which has ranged from okay to horrible, and now I'd like to move onto the wide world of... well, better speakers! Thing is, there's so much stuff that I can't really decide/know what I ought to get and was wondering if you guys...
  2. Display Calibration
    Hello! I'm setting up a color studio in my office(I'm new to calibrating via a device. I'm used to doing SEMPTE bars with blue only onset) I've done a few calibrations at this point and have probably spent a total of 30+ hours doing so. I've gotten my calibration to Grayscale Max 1.6 and an...

  4. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I'm looking for a 4k projector to install on a projector lift in my living room. I currently set up a hachi infinite m1, a 720p portable short throw projector, when I want to watch something on my 106" recessed tab-tensioned screen. The screen comes down in front of the fireplace so there isn't...
  5. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    Hello, I've been lurking here for quite a while and read many design and build posts. Some truly incredible setups and designs. Mine is different. It's a last minute, minimal "home theater" I'm trying to pull together before drywall is installed in a couple weeks. I'm not even purchasing...
  6. Soundbars
    I purchased a M512A-H6 Vizio Atmos soundbar. The 5.25” subwoofer isn’t good. Is it possible, somehow to hook up my Sony SW2500 10” powered subwoofer to it or my tv to get my Sony sub to work with my soundbar? Is there a device I can buy? I’m running my soundbar into hdmi 3 eARC in my Samsung...
  7. 2-Channel Audio
    Hi folks I recently bought a Hidizs AP80 Pro DAP and although I love the sound quality, I am not impressed with the shuffle mode it clearly is nowhere near random. I currently have around 10.5k Flac files on the player and in shuffle mode it appears to play tracks numbered anywhere in the...
  8. CD Players & Dedicated Music Transports
    Hello all! New here, and just did not know where else to go after a long search. Here's hoping some of the wise heads here can help me out. I've been searching casually for some time for a new DAP. (I'd reveal my utter basicness and use the generic "MP3 player," but among the file formats on my...

  11. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hey everyone. I know there is probably no hope for this onkyo but I have no sound out of the front right channel. I've reflashed the firmware and everything. The DSP chip was replaced by onkyo over a year ago. And I've tried the heat tricks and pressing on the chip to see if it's the chip again...

    Plotting out my basement home theater and looking at Atmos speaker setups. I am planning on going 5.1.4, however with an exposed basement ceiling that will be painted black, what is the best way to mount or hang Atmos speakers above the seating areas? I could just mount a board between the...
  13. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I may have made a mistake 🤦‍♂️ I purchased the Yamaha R-N303 looking for a stereo receiver with Spotify Connect. Found out the speakers I have (Bose Model 101 MusicMonitor from 1984) are 4-ohm while the receiver manual specifies 8-ohm as the minimum. I understand higher quality receivers can...
  14. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Am I just not aware of why the vertical borders of the projection would angle outward? And how to change that? The projection itself is straight as long as I line it up properly but the border still bothers me to no end.

I bought a digital to aux cable but it doesn't seem to work. How can I connect it to my laptop when I also don't...
  17. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers

  18. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hey Guys! So I am a relative noob to the AV world, in the past, my home theater setup was whatever vizio TV was on sale, add a sound bar and walk away.
