I am seriously liking the real sugar Pepsis right now. Vanilla and Cherry are my favorites. I have been drinking a LOT more water, but when I do have a "pop," these are what I prefer.

DeWalt has a construction grade ghetto blaster available. Apparently battery life is supreme - there are several options they can check out at brest buy and guitar center.

Chess, if you have an oppo you may be able to use the multichannel analog outputs into your avr. You can then use the oppo for HD audio decoding and your avr will basically become just an amplifier. You didnt mention which oppo you purchased, but

Scott, Working alone in peoples' houses all day, (I don't do that any more), I always brought CD's and a boombox. They are hard to find. Sony still makes one (with "X Bass!") Lots of passing-though other trades guys would ask about it, si

Short answer: DD5.1 is compressed.... DTS-Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD are not. Ok, technically DTS-MA and Dolby TrueHD ARE compressed, but they are more like a .zip file. extract the data from that file and you get the full lossless (uncompressed

Chess, you're crazy!!! Well, not really, I just felt like I was missing out. I know I have a particular concert Bluray home that the HD format is actually way less enjoyable than the DD5.1. Damn it, I can't remember which one it is though. I reca
