    I'm setting up a new 5.1 surround system (no Atmos) for gaming and movies, and I need to place the two surround speakers high up, between the wooden beams in the ceiling, as there's no wall on one side (open floor plan). See the attached photo (actually shot from the main listening position) of...

    Hey all, Second post here- already posted in the wrong forum and got fried so I hope I have it right this time and aim to not to get ripped to shreds by the AV legends here. I am in the market for a surround sound processor for my studio at home. I have a 7.1 surround system which I use in...
  4. 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...

    Hi, I've got a Denon AVC-X4700H, and since a few days it started to recognize 5.1 Signals as 7.1 (uncompressed, PCM, Bitstream) (This happens on Nintendo Switch, but also on XBox Series X) No matter if i set it to 5.1 or 7.1, the AVR always shows 7.1 This leads to the Problem that i can no...

    I was hoping to get some advice on where the best place would be to mount my atmos ceiling speakers (Polk OWM3) and also the best location for my surround sound speakers. my sectional is pushed back against a wall and I cant move it forward at all. After research it appears that the surrounds...
  7. Speakers
    My first post. Any input is greatly appreciated. My theater room is about 35' L x16' W x 8.5' H and I run a 7.2.6 setup from my Denon AVR-X8500H receiver. Because the room is relatively long, I'm considering adding at least 2 more side surrounds (in parallel) and 6 more overhead atmos...

    Hi there! I am soliciting opinions on how best to set up my Bedroom home Theater. I’m starting with a Yamaha RX - A3080 and a front, right and center KEF THX 3160RL’s My goal is to now purchase the remainder of the in-wall speakers to create a good matched balance: I’d like to stay with all...

    Hi all, I am doing some in-wall wiring for a future theater setup in a multi-purpose space and would like some input on rear surround placement. So, Dolby advises the rear surrounds being placed 135deg to 150deg in relation to the main listening position. On the rear surround left speaker...

    Hi y'all, Difficult question: How much will my movie experience be enhanced when I replace my current Onkyo rear speakers with the Q Acoustics 3010i's or Q Acoustics 3020i's? Will there be any improvement? I know this platform hold a lot of enthusiasts, but I am not an audiophile in anyway...

    For people who own Bang & Olufsen speakers BeoLab can now also use these speakers in combination with other TV brands. I recently found this solution: Geniet van 5.1 Surround via B&O luidsprekers op alle merken OLED TV's.

    Hey all, recently got a pair of Revel F36s with the matching center. Loving them so far! I currently have the surrounds from my previous setup (Polk FXI A6). Can anyone recommend dipoles that are a closer match to the f36 fronts?

    I want to setup a 5.1.2 setup in my living room. Is it okay that I install 4 ceiling speakers. Use 2 of them for the back surround sound. Use the other 2 for the Atmos sound? Setup: Rectangular shaped room. 18ftX13ft. 9ft ceiling. No back wall. It is open room to the kitchen/dining room...
  14. Audio Gear
    Hello folks! Today is a tough day for me as I need to part with every last bit of my audio equipment. I've everything in storage for the last four years after downsizing from a 3400sqft home to a 1075sqft home. I just dont see a world where I'm able to set it up again any time soon. Here's a...
  15. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hey, all! I’m new to the forum, but have been doing a lot of research (probably too much) about how I should position our basement home theater/family room. As the title states, how much can an AVR overcome speakers that are near the seating? To give you an idea on what I’m thinking, my...
  16. Surround Music Formats
    For example if I change the sample rate of my soundcard from 48 khz to something like 96 khz or 192 khz it feels like those 'ultra hd' formats are just simply telling me to put my feet on the ground and realize how fake audio actually is, getting the same sound as the ones who process the audio...
  17. Headphones
    Been doing research over the past few days, the Sennheiser HD 598 comes highly recommended. However, I'd prefer my headphones to have the ability to connect via USB, I've always suffered from problems where aux cables will start to go bad or the port will go bad. What are my best options here...

    Hello, I've been reading some posts about connecting external amps like Emotiva to help drive more power to LCR speakers to achieve more clarity. What I'm not sure of is if, in my setup, I would see any benefit from adding an additional amplifier. Secondarily, would it make sense to bi-amp my...
