    Hello All,

    I just realized I had a GC for $400 at Cambridge. I know nothing about them. I know nothing about them, but figured I might as well use it. For my HT set up, my weakest link is the receiver, a Yamaha RX V995. But to be honest, I don't really have a need for more.

    What should I spend the four hundred bucks on that would an improvement to my HT?


    Thank you,
    Don

    Hi Don!
    I think if I forgot I had a $400 GC the first thing I would buy is a white board and some markers so I could make a note of it and hang the white board in a prominent place like on the inside of the front door. Just kidding! DO you need another subwoofer? how about Cambridge SoundWorks BassCube 12S Powered Subwoofer for $349.99.
    Have fun with it!

    Hello Ron,

    Thanks for making me smile! I don't know if I will need another sub, I think they one I am buying is going to be a thunderbolt, but we will see. I don't know if they sell DVD players, but a High Def DVD might be an option as well!

    Thank you,
    Don

    That Yamaha receiver is a few years old, but it's a well respected unit.

    See if Cambridge Soundworks sells Logitech Harmony universal remotes. These are wonderful devices to give you one-button control of your system. I spent about $120 for the 688 model (which has PVR skip forward/back buttons).

    Hello Bob,

    I have a Harmony 890 and friggin love that thing. I have enjoyed it so much that I bought my mother a 880 for Mother's day (its in the tweaking thread under remotes).

    I am pretty happy with my current receiver, I guess I will just hold on the the GC, until I find out what is happening with the format war.

    Thank you,
    Don
