     I have the chance of buying the 840 for $315 or the 1040 for $420. I have Pioneer SP-FS52 LR, SP-BS22 rears and SP-C22 center. I will be adding 2 more SP-BS22's later. I am slowly building my setup as I see prices of what I want drop. Dual subs are on the list after receiver. Possibly SVS or...

     Looking for some feedback on a few AVRs I'm comparing.  I'd be up for paying for more features if they are worth it but I'd like to keep cost down.  I'd like to keep it below 600.  I'm looking for refurbished and used as well as new. The models listed below I found for below $600.    I'll be...

     Hello all, long time lurker 1st time poster.  I've just started getting into the HT hobby within the last year and I had a couple questions.  I got my first small taste of HT in 2013 when I purchased two Klipsch synergy F-20's and a BIC PL-200 powered by a Sony STR-DN1040.  This was great for...

    Has been a few years since wading in and buying anything new. My H/K AVR525 died, so looking for a replacement. Not even sure where to start. Sony STRDN1040 or Yami RXV1075B are looking good to me, and these seem to get good reviews from what I have seen? Using NHT SB3s x4 and the matching...

    I'll start out by stating, I'd rate myself a super novice on this stuff. I have a living room that opens pretty much to rest of the house on one side. Blue are windows, Grey is fireplace, Black is TV, Red is sofas, Green are Hsu speakers. Orange is just measurements. Ceiling is 9' Here...

     Hey guys,  I've been a lurker around this site for a while now, and I want to say thanks as I've learned a fair amount from yall. I'm still a rookie when it comes to home theater stuff- there's just no replacement for hands on experience. I'm hoping I can get some opinions from people more...

    Hey guys I'm in need of some insight as too a new receiver for my home. I've come into some used klipsch F2's from my uncle that he no longer needs. I plan on adding surround channels and a sub as well as a center channel. My question is which 500$ or under receiver should I pair with. I really...

    My family/home theater room is 15x15 with 18' ceilings (approx. 4000cf) and opens up almost entirely to the rest of the house. My MLP is 12' away. Not good, I know. Add to that my other major restriction: WAF dictates any LCR speakers MUST be housed in a rather expensive custom entertainment...

     I have a sony STR DN1040 receiver with a Sony DBP460 connected via HDMI.  It will play the music from a DVD but there are no voices coming over my surround sound.  The Blu Ray works perfectly when hooked directly to the TV.  I also have apple TV and direct TV and those work fine running thru...

     I'm about to do a complete overhaul my 10+ year old home theater system, which is based around a Knox S-Video 8x8 matrix switch (the "hub").   The new system will have an LED HDTV (probably a 60"+ Samsung smart TV) and an AV receiver (likely a Sony STR-DN1040).   I'll continue to need to...

    I’m in the process of selecting a new receiver for my family room and I’m getting pretty frustrated. I’ve been trying to read reviews, read user reviews and opinions and reading the forums and each time I think I’m locked in, something pulls me in a slightly different direction. Here’s what I’m...

     So I am going to be getting a new receiver and a dual sub setup. I really want to stay in the $500ish range on the receiver and everything that uses XT32 is well above that. How critical is XT32 in a dual sub system? Are there other calibration systems that will calibrate the subs individually...

    Can anyone offer any recommendations for a 7.2 receiver? I had two Sony STR-DN1040 that did not play nice with my Panasonic VT60 **video dropouts via HDMI** If curious, this was the problem I'm running modest speakers that work very well for the size of the room: Energy Take Classic 5.1...
