  1. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Tech novice here and just recently purchased an A/V Receiver (Yamaha) with an Ethernet port and a Smart TV with an Ethernet port. If I were to run an Ethernet cable from my Verizon FiOS router should I plug it into my A/V receiver or directly to the TV? Or does it not make a difference since...
  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    About a month ago my sister bought a new Integra 30.4 receiver to replace her 20+ year old Yamaha. Unfortunately, this hasn't been a good experience. Within a week she started have video problems with the HDMI connections (mostly no video). I worked with the system to try to find out he problem...
  3. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    About 8 years ago, I bought a new Rotel 1067 avr but it apparently now has a couple of burned out inputs such that the front speakers no longer play when the TV or blueray is on. (The ancient CD player still plays sound through the speakers so they aren't dead.) In putting together the home...
  4. Home Theater In A Box
    Folks - I am a first timer so please take it easy on me. I am moving into a new apartment in less than a week and I want to pull together a nice enough HT system. I plan on using the system for gaming, movies, casual TV, and music during parties. It is a Hoboken apartment which means the...
  5. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    Hey everyone, I posted this in the PA6500 specific thread, but thought it was likely a broader issue that I hoped to get more eyes on it. So I apologize in advance for the double post, it's not my intention to spam the boards all over with it. I should have made this post to begin with. I've...
  6. Home Theater In A Box
    I need some advise on choosing a 5.1 HTIB system. I am looking to spend around $400.00 and I am driving myself crazy trying to decide between Onkyo and Yamaha models. For the life of my I cannot make a decision between the Onkyo s3500, s5400, s5500 and the Yamaha YHT 597, 495 or 397. As the...

    I found 36% off deal on Groupon for Yamaha BDX-610BL HT System for $449. Being a noob to HT systems, what do you guys think about this deal? Should I buy it?
  8. Home Theater In A Box
    I'm currently looking to snag either of these systems. It will be going in the living of a small apartment, so I don't need anything massive. On Newegg right now, they have a combo for the PC60 and a Pioneer VSX822-K for 450, and the PC60 with a Yamaha receiver for $399. They also have the...

  12. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    So I finally finished my basement and was able to allocate some money and corner space in the basement for my home cinema "R.A.V.E.N." (aka "Randy's A/V Entertainment Nest"). Due to limited budget and layout constraints, it's not totally ideal but I'm quite happy with it. Display:Plasma Smart...

  14. Blu-ray Players
    If you want a Blu-ray player capable of playing SACD and/or DVD-A through its multi-channel analog outputs, you're kind of limited to Oppo and Cambridge Audio (at a higher price point). Well, here's another choice.... Yamaha announces the new BD-A1010 universal player...
  15. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    These models are Yamaha's step up from the 467/567. All evidence points to a welcome increase in the size of the power supply transformer. Compare the 667 to the 665. The 667 is 4.4 pounds more with the same cabinet size and has a higher power consumption. Good news, IMO. RX-V667 Rated power...
  16. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I recently purchased a Yamaha RX-V765 receiver to replace an older receiver with no HDMI or much of anything for that matter. Anyway, I was looking on Yamaha's website and noticed that there is a firmware upgrade for this receiver. I downloaded the WAV audio file, burned it to a cd as a CDDA...

  18. Speakers
    There have been many recent disparate posts inquiring about the Gallos .. namely the Reference 3.1's. So it would make sense to start an owners thread where all the questions can be concentrated and answered within this one thread. It should also be an area for our mutual Gallo luv-fest for...
  19. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    I've finally moved from planning to building and I'm going to start my thread here in hopes that some of the members here can help me fix any mistakes before I get to them and help me make a better games & HT room overall. Little background house was started in May 2006. It will be a 2 level...
