question

  1. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    This is a theoretical question that no guide to the subwoofer crawl has answered (from my research). They all say to plop it down where you’re seated, with no further details or qualifiers. But when placing a subwoofer on the sofa for a subwoofer crawl, placing it in a forward orientation would...
  2. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Working from home and using a VPN. I log in to Outlook 365 online for work. I also log into an online database for work. Both of these are completely online. The VPN I use is something I purchased for home. There is no work software installed on my home PC that I'm aware of. After reading some...
  3. Soundbars
    Hello, This question is probably very silly, but since I'm not sure I prefer to ask it anyway. I just bought a soundbar for my TV and it has a "3D surround" feature. Since I don't know if it makes the experience better or not (for me at least), I'm quickly trying it on different shows and types...
  4. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hey guys! I've decided to upgrade my home theater and, after doing a good deal of research, I've settled on the Klipsch RP-280FA and RP-450C. Even though they're a few years old, they seem to be in the perfect price vs. quality range, and everything I see tells me the jump to the RP-8000F isn't...
  5. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I have a question about bi-amping. I am thinking about getting 2 tower speakers for my audio system. I need to get 4 channel amp as I currently have 2 channel amp for my 2 bookshelf speakers. But as I reading and watching videos online I see that bi-amping helps the tower speakers sound better...
  6. Speakers
    Hear me out now. Unpowered speaker cabinet with 4 x 10" speakers and a tweeter. (Accoustic B410C). Crackling, so I figured I blew a cone. Test all cones individualy. All perfect. Connect them back and realize... If I push on the cone of one speaker gently, I hear the crackle, faintly, on all...
  7. OLED Technology and Flat Panels General
    Greetings fellow B6 owners! I wanted to get a general consensus from everyone on their current thoughts on their B6’s, especially if you are on the latest firmware. I never update my B6 after firmware 4.x.x (forget the exact version I am on, but it was the one before HDR game mode got darker?)...
  8. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hello everyone, Forgive me if this is the wrong place to post questions. I am new to AVS and the world of audio in general. I recently started using my Sony HAPS1 to play more music and have noticed that upon selecting the song, it starts about half a second late. Some big entrances to songs...
  9. Speakers
    So I decided to run a 5.1 test for my home theater system that is about 10 years old now(Samsung HT-Q80). It all came in one package by Samsung. The speakers, dvd player, subwoofer, all in one. Now I run the test but when the video says sound is supposed to come from the surround speakers behind...

  11. CD Players & Dedicated Music Transports
    Hello, I am in possession of a 1990's Samsung Home Stereo Unit (I have included a picture as an attachment). It has treated me very well over the years. However, there seems to be an issue with the 1/4 headphone port when using modern headsets. This is what I think the problem is, the TRRS...
  12. Rear Projection Units
    Hi there, everyone, I've heard a lot of good about this place, so I thought you guys might be able to help me with this issue. The JPG shows what you get when the projector is on; the dot-things also unfocus when you mess with the focus on the lens. Apologies for the bad quality picture and...
  13. Game Room Equipment & Accessories
    Greetings. This is home theater related but not specifically AV. My new theater is under construction. Due to the shape of the room we had to build a wall in the back corner that leaves some empty space which will be wasted. I had considered putting a popcorn machine in the theater but we...

    Baluns over IP I'm looking for a couple of baluns that can run over Ethernet. Not Cat5e/Cat6, but over Ethernet. I have a few drops where there's a single Cat5e cable and at each of them I'm already using them for my LAN. So I've been looking for some sort of IP encoders and most are over...

  18. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I'm looking for some device to switch between all of my different video sources. I don't want to be dependent upon my TV having the required inputs, and I'd like to keep it at one device if possible. I currently have: A Betamax Player A VHS VCR/ DVD Player A Blu Ray Player A PS2 A PS3 A Super...

    Hi, I have three old (~10 years) Triad OnWall Bronze LCR speakers. I only have the speakers, no cables/amps or anything, and I'd like to be able to play music from my computer into all three speakers. What cables/type of amp (if i need an amp) do I need to be able to do this? The back of...
  20. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I'm in desperate need of help from some experts in home audio. I bought a new house last year that was pre-wired for audio in just about every room in the house. The guy that lived there before me was clearly an expert in audio, but I'm not so I've been struggling with what to buy. It breaks...
