     I have what is probably a common dilemma.. I used to not care that much about my AV gear or sound it produced as long as it was "good".. That is until I got a great set of headphones. Then all of the sudden my world and ears opened up to the possibilities of what's out there. It made me...

    Please forgive my ignorance on these systems, I'm getting to that age where I am not sure if I am applying the correct logic. I just bought a Samsun F8000 65" and it has a lot of apps and features and will soon be hooking it up. Now prior to the purchase of this TV, all of my peripherals...

     If dialogue heard from a basic 2 way  ( i.e. Boston Acoustic 424v) Center speaker is good with talking heads on major channel, but not clear with some DVDs or TV video/movies like Masterpiece Theatre,  would a higher end better Center speaker make a difference ? We are a "Geriatric couple"...

  13. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
     I want to upgrade my rig little by little and I think a good sub is the right first step.   1. Budget is around $1,000 with some flexibility for something cool. 2. Size requirements/limits. Space is not an issue. I cant imagine any reasonable (to me) sub will take up more that a couple of...

    I am running a 5.4 speaker setup in my HT. It is a 100% movie theater. I was wondering if I should get a new Denon AVR or just get an amp to power my speakers.

    I am connecting home theater components, and wondering if I have the best audio connections. I need to run my Samsung BD-F5900 3D Blu Ray directly to my Samsung UN50F6800 3D HDTV as my Pioneer VSX-1020k AV Receiver does not pass through 3D. In addition, I would like to connect my Motorola...
