  1. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I am looking to upgrade to an LG C1 and was wondering if my Sony STR-DH590 is capable of passing a 4K signal at 120Hz if I had the proper HDMI cables. I know that I can enable "enhanced" on the HDMI ports, but I don't understand if that will help. My only devices capable of pushing the TV are...
  2. Home A/V Distribution
    In need of some big help here everyone. Just purchased a home with Russound ABUS system built into it. I know it’s outdated a little, but I’d like to try to make it work. Here is where I’m at: -5 speakers built in living room (surround sound and the 5 wires are ran underneath TV cabinet) -2...

    BenQ TK850 4K HDR10/HLG 3000lm Home Entertainment Projector Review and Owners Thread I've had the opportunity to take a look at a review sample of BenQ's latest, affordable 4K projector: the TK850. Following the release of the HT3550 last year, the TK850 uses the same chassis and much of the...
  4. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hello Everyone! This is my first time posting and im super excited to build a pair of Dayton 18" Ultimax's using the kit from Parts Express. Im using it in a 15x15 room with 9' 6" ceilings and for about 85% movies and 15% music. I wanted to make sure I had everything and was a little confused...
  5. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Building a 5.1 system for my PC and I already ordered the Denon from Costco, but a local Marantz SR5010 popped up and I can get it with the remote and mic for $260. Assuming the Marantz has no issues, and minding that all I want it for is audio from a PC over HDMI... which would you guys pick...

  7. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I just moved into a house with this reciever for the living room surround sound already built in. The owner says there are 2 outside speakers by the patio wired in as well but cannot figure out how to turn the outside speakers on and off. Anyone have any experience with this kind of setup??
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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?)...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...

  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
