    If you were to build a home theater piece by piece how would you go about doing it? I don't have the funds to drop $1000 for a 5.1 all at once. I currently have a Pioneer Elite VSX 53 (paid $290) I would like to start out with either 2 bookshelf or towers, honestly I have no preference...

    I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-53 receiver and a Denon 1913 receiver. I have them both connected to my home network via Ethernet cable. Hooked the Denon up first and everything worked fine for awhile. Able to connect to my pc and Pandora. However, after a period of time all kinds of strange...

    I am so annoyed with the MCAC on my vsx-53... every time I run it the sound is completely different and horrible! My speakers are certified nearly flat and I want to use NO EQ. How do I turn it OFF? Oh, and before someone says "use the remote" I DO NOT HAVE A REMOTE! I just need to know where...

    I have read many different procedures and tips for running the MCACC setup on other receivers, but not specifically for the VSX-53. Some of the menu wording and procedures are not exactly the same as what's available on the VSX-53. I am having trouble arriving at a true clean sound and every...

    AXD7591 ?? I have got to get the correct original remote for my VSX-53. I bought a Harmony 650 and it is absolutely the worst for controlling the VSX-53 ! I cannot get into any of the controls for B Speaker or Zones or Surround. It also cannot turn on my Samsung TV and set it to HDMI or...

    It looks like Pioneer and / or Crestron have decided to stop developing Partner modules for their last two generations of Flagship receivers. The last partner module on the Crestron website is for the SC-07. The readme files for that module and others (VSX-53 for example) state that "it should...

     Hi,   Have an outdoor paito with a center, front left, front right, surround left, surround right speakers hooked up.  Would like to know the sound setting to have for this zone to make all speakers play the same sound versus being in a surround sound mode?   Thanks,   Brandon

    I am considering replacing my Polk LSi-9s fronts with Magnepan Super MMGs. IS this going to be a worthwhile upgrade? I am not looking for lots of punchy bass to rattle the house. I have a sub for that. Just the two front speakers that will produce a more detailed, transparent and...

    I started to watch the expendables 2 last night and during the start up sequence the audio was as it should be. But once the movie started in DTS MA there was no sound. I after pressing The audio button a few times to cycle through the options once it came round to the DTS MA sound track the...

    I am probably buying an Emotiva power amp ( XPA-200 ) . It isnt exactly a powerhouse (my receiver by itself is powerful enough, I just want my speakers to open up with a separate unit). The Emotiva descriptions says: "Equally at home powering a superb stereo system, or the front channels of...

    Hi. Two questions. 1) Do I need a DAC? I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-53 AVR, Pioneer Elite BD player and getting an Emotiva power amp in a couple of months (let me know if you are selling one!). I have Polk LSi-9 speakers with a decent center channel and an excellent 1000W sub. I mostly listen to...

    Hello. I have had the vsx-53 for a little over a month now. I have had no problems until the last few days. It seems to have a mind of its own. I started it up yesterday and it some how went back to the default settings, meaning all settings were lost and it was like when it was new. Today I...
  14. What's Your System Configuration
    Update: March 16 2021 The biggest upgrade has been going to a Hover Boss setup, both for the front row and back row. I did that back in April of 2019 but haven't gotten around to updating my room thread. The front row has 2 JBL drivers per chair and the back row riser/couch has 4 drivers in...

    My deepest appoligies for yet another "help me choose" thread, but I need best opinions or advice. Sorry for the length, but rather too much then not enough info. When my mits rear projection died, I upgraded to a Samsung 3D Smart tv, so retired my Sony STR-DB930 and picked up a Sony...

    So I have Magnolia come in and give me some recommendations and do a design for my media room that I want to build. The guys were cool and worked out a couple of different options, but here is the upper end proposal. I am looking for opinions on the equipment choice, price, or anything else...

    I know, I know....that question has been asked a dozen times in multiple threads. But we all know each set-up has its own considerations. I would appreciate some help finding what best fits my needs. Here is my set-up: Room: 15' x 20' Projector: Panasonic PT-AE4000 Screen: 100" Front...

    I bought a Pioneer Elite receiver VSX-53 and tried setting up the remote to control Panasonic HDTV TH58PXU60. I used the discrete codes provided in the Pioneer manual for Panasonic TVs, but could not get any of them to work. Has anyone with the same components able to setup the Pioneer remote...

    Folks - I am a first timer so please take it easy on me. I am moving into a new apartment in less than a week and I want to pull together a nice enough HT system. I plan on using the system for gaming, movies, casual TV, and music during parties. It is a Hoboken apartment which means the...
