    Some reactions from a Best Buy visit

    Hey, Chris, I've been to several boutique HT shops and asked the question about calibrated displays and not once in 3-4 years has any of them stated the display was calibrated, but in every instance it was no, they were in the process of having it done. LOL

    DLP vs. LCD - The Discussion Thread that Combines Them ALL

    If this is a 'theater' in a dedicated room why are you not consider a projector? It sounds like by the afforded description you have a dedicated basement livingroom or media room in desire.

    Some reactions from a Best Buy visit

    Attempting to determine contrast in a brightly lit BB environment is not going to get you anywhere. First, the lighting is going to be completely different than the lighting in your home, right? Not just in your home's color light, but also in intensity. Secondly, the last time I checked LCoS...

    What Projector would be best?

    If you are moving in two months I would suggest you wait until you get to your new accommodations to determine the environmental constraints and suit it with the best projector for that environment.

    RP Lamps

    I would imagine that there is a developing market (i.e. demand) for replacement lamps, but I am not sure if you are asking about non-OEM parts availability or just whether manufacturers have available sufficient lamps for routine replacement. I think there has been a report, or two, regarding...

    Question about 1080i projectors

    What is 'full HD' to you? Are you talking about 1080i, or deinterlaced 180P? There are a couple of products in the >$20K that have 1920x1080 resolution or better, but nothing currently that I am aware of in the

    What to buy for my HT?

    The NEC HT1000, Optoma H56, and Mitsubishi XD300U are all XGA (4:3) formats, and the Sanyo PLV-60 and Panasonic PT-L300U are 16:9 format. If consideration is stronger for the XGA panels then go for the gold and buy a 4:3 screen. I've only seen the HT1000 and it was on the Da-Lite Hi-Power and...

    Concrete Anyone? Subwoofer et al

    Everyone, I have no experience in DIY acoustics. Furthermore, I have extremely little (almost none) experience regarding audio in general. So, please understand that what I am about to ask comes appropriately in nature: What is 'Q' and what function does it control and whats the good, bad...

    Concrete Anyone? Subwoofer et al

    Actually, making the 5-sides of the concrete cube is probably better in that it'll make for ease in terms of installing the driver.

    Concrete Anyone? Subwoofer et al

    I think I could make a form from cheap OSB, with an inner liner, but the problem I am seeing is one where I could do 5 of the six sides of a cube, but the 6th side can't be installed as I would need a way to pull said liner out. I suppose I coule make it in such a way as that the 6th side is...
