    Prime day was good to me this year and I picked up a new 55" Amazon (Element) 4k UHD TV for $400 to replace my old 1080 LG. Everything is hooked to a Marantz NR1603 and the TV is using ARC to get back to the receiver to enable the apps to play through the home theater. Here's where things get...

    I just bought this receiver. When I hooked it up it quickly started showing problems. It would start shutting off - into protection mode - every 10-15minutes.

     Hello all.   A while back I purchased an onkyo S9300THX 7.1 HTIB and was very pleased with it. Yesterday my receiver decided to go out with a bang (smoke, sparks and all) and am looking for a replacement. For now I would like to keep my existing speakers but will look towards upgrading in...

    Hi, I have a pair of CSW Tower-1 speakers driven by a Yamaha RX-V671, primarily for HT. The room is a dedicated HT and 25' x 12' x 8' (height). Plus, there are surround speakers etc and a 12" sub. For whatever reason, neither music nor movie audio is exactly exciting/amazing. Now, I realize...

     Hello all,    I recently picked up a pair of Mythos STS and have been having a heck of a time getting the sound out of them that I'm looking for. My old Panny SA-XR55 sounds plain terrible with them. So, I've been on the hunt.    I have space concerns, so I'd like an amp that's sub 5" in...

The majority of the answers seemed to have been yes, maybe, and no ... so I'm still trying to...
