    There's no particular problem, I just want to learn if I'm doing this as best I can with regard to the health of my equipment and standard practice. From my untrained ears, I've perceived no different in quality when changing the way each stage deals with gain to obtain the final, desired...

    I have a Panasonic 5.1 bought it in 2007 SA-PT753. But I was not using the 5.1 because I disconnect my rear surround because it was conflicting with my Wifi since is an old system.

    Hello everyone, I'm planning to build a dream home theater and want to know if the following sounds sufficient and future-proof (for a long while, anyway). Some details - the current 'workable' space measures approximately 12' x 13' with 8' ceiling. There is an area off the entry way that is...

    Hello, New here. I just recently decided it was time to get a quality home audio/theater setup rather than a department store box set, and wanted input on what else it may need for quality performance. Currently will have a 3.1 system with plans to update to 5.1 or 7.1. Room size is rather...

    Looking for ideas on what to do with this whole house system dated circa 1999 in the home I just purchased and moved into this week. It looks to me like nothing has been done with it or changed since it was first installed. There is an AV rack in a closet in the finished basement where all...

    My floor speakers each have 2 sets of terminals, one for the mids and one for the hi's and I have jumper cable connecting the positive to positive and negative to negative. My question is how does this affect the total net impedance of the speaker? My speakers are spec'd at 8 ohms. Will using...

    I purchased two Klipsch RP-150M and I put both of them on 26" stands. Klipsch recommends distancing the two front speakers 6-15 feet apart from each other and that the listening position be 1-1.5 times the distance separating the fronts. However, they don't mention anything about how much...

    Hello, random question. I have 2 Sony speakers rated at 6ohm and 2 Philips speakers also rated at 6ohm connecting to a telefunken TNE 1300 rated at 8ohm. Is it better to run two speakers on each channel at either 3ohms wired parallel or 12ohms in series or just run one set only?
