I've had 3 Samsung plasma's, one Panasonic plasma, and now I have 2 Samsung LED-LCD sets, both 4k. The only one that displeased me was an expensive Samsung plasma that broke after two years. I'm very pleased with the last one I got, Samsung 65"

WooHoo! The Marantz SR7008 came a week ago from Accessories 4 Less. Great deal on the refurb, and I would not be able to tell it apart from new stock. Of course, I haven't been able to test it out yet, but that should be changing shortly! I'll

So i see that one of the options for later purchase is a battery. Does this mean for the $495 price it does not include a battery and must be plugged in or is the upgrade for an extra or extended life battery?

It isn't that room isolation will make things sound bad, per se, but they are for soundproofing, which is different than acoustical treatments. I will say this. Soundproofing (ok, nothing will truly be "sound proof" unless you bury yourse

Videos like this are what convinced me to take the plunge and actively "correct" my room to let the soundtrack/music shine through. This is for demonstration only. I would never go this far......

Hey Andrew, thanks for your advice. Can you say if HT use is different than music listening rooms in terms of acoustics in your experience? It would be great to have more input from you as this rolls along. Can you elaborate on how sound isolat

Yuck. I just verified the issue exists for me, too. I'm going to submit it as a bug to Apple.

I never got much action from my back surrounds (QS8), and I took to using front height speakers instead (CSW dipoles, similar to QS4) and Dolby PLIIz on my Pioneer SC-1522. Well, the 1522 AVR finally broke, and I replaced it with a Pioneer VSX-90, w

Yeah, Mark, "Thanks" Matt, my music is on shared Windows folders on an old Vista machine that just runs all the time. I've successfully run Plex server and Tversity on it to get a DLNA feed. The Squeezebox uses Logitech Media Server ref

Tom. where is your music stored? I have been using a Synology NAS for the past 3 years and simply just love it. they are more expensive but I think you get what you pay for. They have a web based app called DSAudio that will stream to a DLNA devi

Thanks, Cork. I would be interested in your opinion of the mobile apps. The ability to control music without having the main display turned on has become one of my requirements. I played with my Roku 2XD. It also fails that test, but did provide

I could not eliminate the peak/null at around 60hz in my test room by moving subs around. I tried several locations. The response didn't change enough to warrant more graph pics. -just a differing level of nullness by a few db or so. The dual setu

To answer your dilemma, you set your speakers, treat room, then tweak your positions if need be. It's really not as hyper dynamic as it seems. The speaker response direct/off axis doesn't change, just reflections. Since your mains are omni directi

Matt, there are guidelines for what and where. The unknowns are how many and how much (thickness/frequency coverage etc.) It really depends on the room material/furnishings (sabin/absorbtion calc.) and dimensions (volume) and intended use. These d

In the world of audio, there are two kinds of companies. Those who gather the dirt and those who dish the dirt. One doesn't want to be on the dishing end when the gatherers have their day.

Has anyone done a direct comparison? Curious if the Bryston's are worth almost triple the price. I've been thinking about buying a pair of the T's.....BUT I can't imagine they are truly that much better than the M100's.... Any input please! Thx
