  1. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I'm a rookie here who needs some help. I have the Polk TSx550t as well as an Onkyo TX-NR818. Both have the capability to bi-amp but is there really any advantage? Onkyo says that the NR818 can drive all channels at 135W (8 ohms) while the 550t is supposed to be able to handle up to 300W...
  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors

  3. DIY Speakers and Subs
     Okay, so probably have placed this in the wrong forum but it seems like the DIY people are more knowledgeable than the rest ;-)   I am in the process of building up my home theater system, and haven't build a proper cabinet for hosting all of my devices (eg: cable box, xbox etc.) and my...

  5. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I posted as rather long-winded thread a couple days ago, so I'll try to keep this short... I need a sub for my 7.1 system. My current sub (Infinity HPS-500) has a blown amp, and a little rattle as well. My choices- A.) Replace Infinity HPS-500 blown amp with iNUKE NU1000DSP B.) Dayton...
  6. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Just bought an 818 from a member on another forum and I don't want to keep pestering him with questions so I'm asking here. I cannot figure out how to listen to a CD in Stereo mode (or 2.1). I would want Audyssey active as well. It seems like everything is stuck in THX surround modes. I also...
  7. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I have an Onkyo 818 and recently purchased an Emotiva XPA-3 for my front 3. I'll be adding a set of front wides now but I'm wondering are these typically considered more of a surround speaker or an extension of the L/R? Is it vital to have the wides be in the same speaker family as the L/R? I'd...

    Has been a few years since wading in and buying anything new. My H/K AVR525 died, so looking for a replacement. Not even sure where to start. Sony STRDN1040 or Yami RXV1075B are looking good to me, and these seem to get good reviews from what I have seen? Using NHT SB3s x4 and the matching...

    Why I want to upgrade, I have no idea. Was looking at the Onkyo 818 or the Pioneer SC-61. Any reason to pull the trigger or just leave well enough alone

  14. Speakers
    New member here; I just picked up a pair of klipsch RF 82 towers and will be pairing it with an RC 62 centre channel for an 18x14x8 room (4 level split so the room has a 11ft by 5ft cutout right behind the couch). In terms of powering them I have narrowed it down to the Onkyo tx-nr818 and the...
