    I recently had to move to a smaller place and had to sell my Snell Type A speakers and my crappy underpowered Pioneer SC-71 Receiver. It was a 7.1 setup. I kept my Hsu research VTF3 MK3 powered subwoofer. I now need to get new Fronts, Center, and surrounds as well as a receiver and could use...
  5. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    I’m no stranger to audio and I have discerning ears, but neither am I an audiophile nor do I have a lot of experience with HT surround systems. I built our system a few years ago from decent used components, but I had no strategy for system-matching various speakers aside from decent sound, and...
  6. Audio Theory, Setup, and Chat
    Moving into a new home with a roughly 14' x 14' living room, 9' ceilings. I know all ceiling speakers are not ideal, but because of the room layout I don't have any choices and everything must go into the ceiling. I read very mixed messages on whether it's worth adding more speakers if you...

    Hi, I have started with a home theatre setup, and currently I have 2 Polk RTi A9s, and a centre CSI A6. I would like to buy a new receiver, for both a home theatre setup and for music. So I would like something that can switch to stereo only, to play music through the A9s. They support up to...

    I have a small slope in my theater room (in progress of building out) on either side of the room, I wouldn't exactly call it vaulted (picture attached). I currently have Atmos enabled JBL speakers firing up to the ceiling, but if I go with a larger screen, the left speaker would fire against the...

    I'm planning to get a projector and speaker system for setting up in my garage. Any recommendations for a good projector under $1000? Is this a good option - ViewSonic PX701-4K 3200-Lumen HDR XPR 4K UHD Home Theater DLP Projector? How about Epson home cinema 2250? Also need recommendations...

    Hi everyone. New member here, long time lurker. I've had multiple projection setups over the last decade but they were always in my semi-light controlled family room and the kids rooms. We just moved to a new home that to our excitement came with a dedicated professionally installed home...

    We are finishing a basement and are building a home theater room. Unfortunately, our contractor has placed the speaker wires (that will connect to the av receiver) too close to where the projector screen will go. Once the receiver goes in, I think it will block the view of a part of the screen...

    I currently have a 3.1 setup (L/R = Infinity Primus P363, Center = Infinity Primus PC351, Sub = Klipsch RW-12d). Looking to expand to 5.1 and eventually 7.1. Currently I only have a 5.1 capable receiver (Denon 1713) so I'm focused on that, but will be upgrading my receiver and TV when it seems...

    Hi, I am looking for a recommendation for an omni-directional speaker similar to this Bose model. I am purchasing several on the behalf of someone else, and it is very important to them that the manufacturer is German. I know this might be a stretch, but does anyone have a specific model or...
