    Bose wins again!!!

    After 2 years of reading these kinds of threads, I still don't get it. Why does anyone care what anyone else buys? The only brand that is ALWAYS criticized here is Bose. Let people buy what they want. No purchase is the wrong purchase if the customer is happy.....notice I say happy, not...

    DVI vs. Component: signal quality question.

    I'll jump on the DVI bandwagon here as it applies to fixed pixel displays. I recently had the chance to see a DVI enabled DVD player connected to a simple EDTV Plasma w/DVI in. The background "noise" in solid color areas (compression artifacts?) was eliminated.

    Disappointment with A/V salespeople

    This thread began with someone being fed up with AV salespeople because of one associate's not being aware of a magazine review. As a 20+ year veteran in this industry, I'll admit that magazine reviews were the very last place that I learned anything. Most decent mid-fi/hi-fi stores expose...
