    Hey all! I've recently acquired myself an Xbox Series X which I have plugged directly into my Atmos capable Vizio 5.1.2 soundbar. The Xbox supports HDMI 2.1 and is connected to the soundbar via a 2.1 cable, but the soundbar only supports HDMI 2.0. Within the Xbox audio settings there are the...

  5. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hey so recently I decided to try my hand at making my own speaker. I'm very new to this so bear with me. I thought that a 12 sided dodecahedron shape would look really cool. I would post pictures or links but you need 5 posts to do so and this is actually my first post. This would require 10...
  6. DIY Screen Section
    Hello guys! Ever since I learnt of home projectors I've always wanted to get myself one and watch movies and play games at huge screens. Unforunately, the cost and lack of home space kept me from going forward with this. But I've finally convinced my live-in girlfriend to get one (She always...

  9. Speakers
    Hey, everyone. I've gotten tired of builtin TV audio and I'm ready to get a bit more serious. I've been doing a bit of research but I'm more knowledgeable on the computer side of things and not so much on the home audio side. I could use some help and I figure this is the best place to ask...

  12. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hey all! First time poster. My dad gave me these a few months ago because the 10" subs are toast, their surrounds literally turned into dust. I was wondering if it was worth refurbishing the fortura pedestals. I have an old pair of pioneer 10" ts-w252c subs just laying around, and I know that...
  13. Speakers
    Hi, I do not have any experience buying good speakers/home theater systems, and need advice. I was planning to buy Yamaha/Onkyo HTIB, but I read on many forums that I can buy much better quality speakers and receivers if I buy speakers separately. I am looking to buy speakers as well as...

    I totally screwed up my TV's service menu and I am extremely upset with myself. I am on the latest firmware.

  15. 2-Channel Audio
    Hello all, I'm a serious noob when it comes to audio. I've done lots of research, but often find myself on endless paths looking up one thing, then another, then just giving up. Most of the time, I can't even figure out what I'm trying to buy. Here's the deal. I'm living in a suite next year...
  16. Speakers
    So the guy wants 200 but I might be able to talk him down to the 150 range. He says they come with stands and the EQ. He has them listed as Marantz 901, which is wierd because they look similar to the popular Bose 901'S. I just have never seen/heard of these before and wondered if one of you...

  19. Headphones
    So I will be gaming with these so plug and play is the probably the most important thing. This will be my first pair of "real" headphones. I've been really interested in the AKG K77 Precision. I like the K99 too but it's just a little to expensive. Will the K77 Precision be good? I also looked...
  20. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hi all, I just wanted to start this out by pleading to everyone not to hate me as I am a complete noobie to this massive world of audio and am in the process of setting of my first sound system.
