  1. Speakers
    I've asked this before but have not received much feedback so I'm gonna give it another shot. Anyone who is knowledgeable about running low impedance speakers with high end receivers or about the Polk LSi series (original 4ohm) would be a major help to me. I used to run my system with an...

    Hey! I'm new to the community, and I don't know a whole lot about home theater audio in general. But basically, I'm looking for suggestions of what receivers would be compatible with my set of home audio speakers I got from my dad. The model of speakers is HTS5, and from what it sounds like I...

    Need a recommendation for a good reliable 4K receiver less than $1000. Within the last year I have purchased (2) receivers - Sony STR-1080 and Onkyo TX-RZ820 and both have had bad HDMI ports. Any recommendations for a 4K receiver for a 5.1 speaker system? We mostly stream and watch 4K blu-ray...

    I just got the denon avr-s530bt and it's great....except that I can't remove radio stations from the preset list. I know how to ADD stations to the list, but when I did the automatic preset setup, it added stations that are silent and added some stations a couple of times. I'd like to remove the...

  8. 2-Channel Audio
    Hello all... So in the land of mid-priced AVR's where the specs are all the same I find myself looking for good ol' fashioned higher quality 2 channel audio receivers. (Maybe amps) in and around the $500 mark. Any suggestions for better spec (than mid-priced AVRs) amps or receivers without all...

    Let me preface this by saying that I have almost no knowledge about audio equipment, so thanks for your help and bearing with my ignorance. I have 6 speakers built into my walls in 3 different rooms on my first floor. I'd like to hook up 4 of those speakers (kitchen and living room) to play...

    Hello, I did have my audio setup with audio cable instead of HDMI. Now with HDMI setup the presets for audio don't work. I go through each setting and the audio does not change where before the Scifi setting would sound different than Drama etc. Is it normal that HDMI will prevent the...
  14. HDTV Technical
    Just curious. My audio systems, the Denon 5.1 receiver in the living room, and the Sanyo branded soundbar in the bedroom (Funai), both occasionally have very loud pops in the audio, especially during inclimate weather, watching over the air (only TV I have besides the services on Roku). Any idea...

    With the Frys Sunday promo code, you can get this for $499 through Tuesday while supplies last. And in my area at least, this includes sales tax. I picked one up today. Of course this model has been discontinued, but I'm not really sure what's changed in the new 3300 version. The specs look...

    I have Klipsch Reference Premiere 5.2 surround speakers. I have two Onkyo receivers. An older unit which uses Auddysey and a newer unit which uses Onkyos own AccuEQ.

    So last night I had a college party at my house and about 3 hours in the music completely stopped! Went over to my receiver (Sony STR-D865 I believe 200W) and it was about as hot as Kate Upton running a 5K in the Mojave. All it was showing was horizontal red lines on the display. We unplugged it...
