  4. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
     A little background. After purchasing the Ultra Center from SVS to replace my Klipsch Synergy C-20 I immediately heard a dramatic change in sound quality, as I expected. It was as if the C-20 was drowning out my towers. The clarity is unbelievable, and I would definitely recommend the Ultra...

    Hi all - So about a year ago I leapt before I looked and picked up a Klipsch Icon set from Best Buy (yeah, I know). It was an impulse purchase and while they've been pretty good, I want to make a good LONG TERM investment in my home theater setup. I've looked at a local shop and wanted to get...

    Hello, I have tried to update the firmware on my TX-NR609 but unfortunately, while it was 60-70% completed, the electrical power was shuted down so the firmware update was interupted. Now all I can see is "onkyo" on my TV, and it stuck there. I noticed that I can play music through USB, all...
