Yes, I'll admit to using AVS periodically as a resource because of the folks there who actually do "science". Because of the very broad user base, it does end up having a lot of good information.

But, yes, the S/N ratio isn't very good. And I was happier at Audioholics until Gene lost his mind relative to Axiom.

I use AVS for their theater build threads and some demo blu-ray threads. I might jump into an owner's thread or movie review from time to time, but not very often, and I stay as far away as possible from the "which XYZ system should I get" type of threads.

I am with you nick. the hometheater thread is the best and they have some great guys around that area. The Audio stuff is dominated by a few guys who are quite knowledgeable but they over hype audyssey IMHO.Batpig and JDsmoothie know a lot about the denons and they are helpful when it comes to setting everything up and deciphering the manual. The denon manual is horrible and yamaha's is even worse. I spent a lot of time at the hdtv forum to keep up with the latest plasma and oled tech but that has slowed to a trickle.The tone there isn't the greatest though, little too much ego for my taste so I only read and seldom post.
