    I'm in the market for a new midrange receiver with stress on sound quality. I recently came across the Sherbourn sr-8100. Although it doesn't have all the inputs I would like and lacks the features of most of today's popular midrange receivers I've read that the sound quality rivals that of...

    Is this possible? I know there are a lot of inputs on the set to pipe in sound and video but how about sending audio back out? Using the Netflix and Amazon apps are very convenient, if I get a proper receiver and speakers will I be able to pipe that audio out of the TV or will I be forced to...

    Hey guys, after a lot of research, I am leaning to buying separate components to my 5.1 surround. (not HTIB). I need 3d, and Airplay would be nice. Will I need upconverting still with today's technology? It'll be playing primarily for sony's XBR, blueray, etc. The upconverting will be needed...
