    Do amplifiers go bad???

    I'll check with the dealer tomorrow. Chu, what do you mean by terminated? You mean connectors? I have fork terminals soldered on both wire ends, and they are just tightened on the amp and speaker connectors. I used a tool to tighten, not just by hand. I think they make pretty good contact. Do...

    Do amplifiers go bad???

    I haven't called Sherborn yet. I will. I'm trying to get some info first and make sure I'm not crazy and it is really the amp. I cannot provide sales receipt anyway, and they have pretty scary warranty policy: http://www.sherbourn.com/warranty.php Looks like I'll be 'expressly excluded' from...

    Do amplifiers go bad???

    I did try doing that - of course the first thing I suspected was bad connections. It was not the case. If I pick a time when it's happening bad on one of the channels and connect a different speaker to it - it started to happen for that speaker. I also did try another amp - the one in the...

    Do amplifiers go bad???

    I have Sherbourn 5/1500A amp. I bought it about 3 years ago and it's been working very well - until recently. Not long time ago I started noticing that the sound "breaks up" or becomes uneven. It doesn't break completely, it's even hard to tell from the listening position what exactly is...

    Official Panasonic DVD-S97 Specs (Faroudja is back!)

    I've browsed through the manuals and found a statement that the player cannot play neither DVD+R nor DVD+/-RW disks. That's kind of silly for a DVD player, if it's true...

    The New Harmon Kardon AVR 7300.

    I wonder what's the reason for putting a deinterlacer in the receiver? Now we'll have 3 deinterlacers - one in the DVD player, one in the receiver, and one in the TV. In a decent home theater setup they will all be of similar quality if not running the same Faroudja chip. Why pay for extra...

    If TV has DCDi, player doesn't need it?

    Thanks Daniel. I felt that I was missing something. Btw I live in Largo ;)

    If TV has DCDi, player doesn't need it?

    I'm trying to upgrade both TV and DVD player. I'm looking at the Samsung HLM507W for TV, which already has DCDi. Does this mean that there is no benefit from having a DVD player with DVDi? Or am I missing something?

    Pioneer 711 + Paradigm Studio 100?

    To me buying Studio 100s and driving them with a receiver is pretty much waste of money. If you don't plan on getting an external amp any soon, better buy Studio 40s with a decent sub (you'll need it anyway) and save yourself some cash. I've tried running Studio 100s with H/K AVR800, but even...

    Outlaw Audio

    I thought the ICBM was a concret example of Outlaws design innovative think-tank group since you refered to 'Outlaw products'. ... Sony didn’t, Eastech didn’t. Outlaw did. Why would Sony want to mess with a small and inherently short-lived product like ICBM? They make players with bass...

    Outlaw Audio

    Mary, ICBM was a neat product at the time, but it's not fair to compare it to the 1050 or 950. ICBM is just a bunch of crossovers, nothing spectacular in terms of design and development. Now, what's so innovative about 950? It's just another sound processor, tinkered to the lower-end...

    Outlaw Audio

    Mary, what's your point? That Outlaw did not design the 1050 nor 950? Well, then you made it. I may disappoint you regarding Outlaw's R&D practices. The way Outlaw had chosen to develop their products (namely to outsource R&D) is only seemingly more cost efficient, but it is in fact one of...

    Outlaw Audio

    David, are you sure Outlaw did the design in case of 950? My understanding was that 950 was designed completely by Eastech. Outlaw may have been one of the companies that [kind of] spec'd the board, but writing specs is far from doing the design. Go to the Eastech web site (they have English...

    attn avr-8000 owners...logic7 question

    It happened to me few times, always when watching cable and most often (what's strange) when it was some kind of talk show or live performance on TV. I don't remember it ever happening during a movie. I've heard that this is normal for Logic 7 and even happens on Lexicons. It's like Logic 7...
