    I've had two installers provide me with quotes for installing a home theater in a windowless basement room (25' x 17') We intend to have a projector on one wall, a large couch about 14-15' from the screen, and shuffle board table behind the couch, so the room will not be devoted solely to the...

    I have been experiencing random loss of audio on my home theater system. I suspect it’s my AVR 3806 receiver since non of the audio comes through on any zone or any speaker. Since it randomly goes out then comes back, it’s hard to get someone to come troubleshoot it. Sometimes it comes back...

    Obviously the RZ50 is better... but does it sound noticeably better given the speakers I'm using? I've got the Onkyo TX-NR676 but I'm having a few issues with passthrough on a Plex setup. Not deal-breaking issues but if there's a noticeably better setup that resolves them I'd be game. I've...

    Hi, This is my first post. I have a question regarding what type of amplifier to get for my setup. I have large patio next to my pool with 4 pairs of speakers ( Polk MC80) in the ceiling. I am planning to add 2 pairs of speakers on two sides of the pool (probably some Polk Atrium 4). So 6 pairs...

    So I'm currently sold on a 3.0 setup (for now) to replace my soundbar with Kef Q350s and a Kef Q650c. Now I am just confused on the receiver to choose for this setup! There are so many choices and I have no option to be able to try them at home and return them if I don't like them (not a common...

    I am looking for suggestions on a receiver for my daughter's upcoming birthday, preferably under $1,000 (max. $1,500). She lives in a Manhattan apartment and will use KEF LS50s. Her usage is primarily: streaming services (e.g., Spotify), albums (classical, classic rock), and some movie watching...

    My THX 4.1 PC sound system is just showing it's age, random audio "pops" that are quite startling. I'm trying to replace it, but it seems like I could just power the existing THX satellites on a receiver for about the same cost as a new THX 4 or 5.1 PC sound system. (I know THX is mostly...
  11. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    I recently moved to a house with built-in ceiling speakers and a cinema room. I'm trying to work out the audio situation and I'll admit that AV is really not my forte so I was hoping that someone could help shed some light on a setup I could go for. Room 1- Cinema room (basement): PS5 + Epson...

    GOD I MISS FRYS ELECTRONICS! In Phoenix the only electronics stores left are Best Buys. I'm looking for help in deciding what equipment I will need to build a home audio system for 8 speakers. I'm not looking for concert quality equipment and would like to stay under $1000 for the two units. I...

    Hello friends, My setup is still work in progress but here is what I think I will end up getting. Klipsch RP 8000Fs in front with RP 404 as a center channel speaker, Boston Acoustics A250s in the rear and I'm still undecided on the receiver and atmos speakers. I have to use Boston Acoustics as I...

    So I'm thinking about a 7.2.4 system in a 26x15.5x10 room. The speakers I'm thinking about getting are PSA speakers. 3 MTM-210s for the front center, 4 MT-110 for the surrounds, Klipsch for the atmos which are also 8 ohms, and externally powered subs. The MTM-210 specs are: Frequency Response...

    I had a full Hue Play Sync system before the new game consoles came out, and it was all running hdmi 2.0. The gradient lightstrip, hue ceiling lights, under chair lights, the works. It was absolutely awesome. My home theater space was a dark neutral gray so the hues were the only light in the...

    Hi, guys! Haven't been to this board for a looong time, but since upgrading the projector last year (to Epson Home Cinema 3200/EH-TW7000), I've once again been watching a lot more movies in the ht room (instead of on a TV in the bedroom) and got the urge to overhaul it. So, I've currently got...

    Hello, I am looking at upgrading my receiver for my system, with which I only really listen to music. I'm just looking for something that might sound better, be a little newer, or have more power to it. I currently have a Pioneer VSX-D309 and am just wondering about which brands I should look...

    Hi, Need some guidance. My brother recently moved into a house that has a movie theater and it has wiring for the in-wall speakers that are already there. No concerns there since they are red and black and it has 7 channels that are labeled properly. I figured one 7.1 channel receiver to tackle...

    Hey guys, I just bought a 3.1 system with Focal Aria speakers (906s and CC990 with an REL sub) to go along with my Sony A8H OLED TV, so now I need a receiver. 90% of what I'll be doing is watching sports and movies with this set up with the other 10% being music. I live in a condo so I won't be...
