    Garage amp needed

    I am in need of a 2 channel amp to run a pair of JBL speakers in my garage. I had an Onkyo 2 channel amp there for 10 years - but it died. For garage use, is there a durable amp I should look at? I’ll be using my phone to stream music via Bluetooth.

    Epson 5020ub bulb needed

    I'm in need of a new bulb for my PJ and was wondering if anyone knew of a reputable source in which to buy. I've been more than pleased with the original bulb and looking to buy a back up. Epson has them for 300 bucks. Curious if anyone knew of a potential second source. Thank you.

    Rhythm of the Heat

    Not only a great song.........but a fantastic demo track for stereo imaging and dynamics. Watched the high end speaker video posted by Titanium Troy (thanks) and thought..... I would play this track instead of some I heard. Great album as well - but this song ALWAYS blows people away when...

    AVS Forum Dynaudio Thread

    I quit visiting the Dynaudio speaker thread a couple years ago due to the overabundance of arrogance/snobbery and downright silliness. Today, popped in to see if things had changed and this is what I saw: "I will add a bit of “Naim recommendations”,it is a good practice to occaisionlly...

    Sony XBR55-900e

    As you may remember, we got hit by lightning a couple months ago and my RPTV's convergence went out. I was able to manually adjust it so we've been watching a slightly blurred set for awhile. My insurance covered a lot of items we lost, including the tree, but gave us 700 bucks to replace the...

    ATI Class D Amps

    Rammis....... What's your take on these? I remember lengthy discussions a few years ago where Class D technology wasn't quite there yet. Don't remember why but thought the consensus was increased distortion (IM?). Would like to know your opinion. I have an 1802 and love the amp with my 4...

    Splitting preamp signal

    Quick question...coworker is looking to run a preamp out into a y connector with one end hooked to an amp and the other to another amp. I say the preamp signal is halved to each, with greater chance of clipping turning up volume. What say you?

    Power Sound Audio S3000i

    Tom and Jim came through and sent the amp overnight this week. I replaced the amp today (sorry Barney...couldn't get photos of the inside of the sub). The drivers are very serious, with massive magnets. I spent about 2 hours calibrating it for use with 2 channel music (I will perform a...

    Impulse buy.....

    I never buy on impulse, but today, based on a post over at AVS forum, I called OPPO to see if they had any refurbished BDP 103's (was looking to buy once my room was ready....which it's not...not even close). They did, so I bought one for $433 shipped (close to 100 bucks off). I plan on using...
