    Thank you, Robert! I just bought the UB820 to pair with my NX-7.

    In the market for a 4k projector

    I was looking into whether I should pair the JVC NX-7 with a Panasonic 4k player. I read somewhere that newer firmware updates to the NX-7 mean that the Panasonic 4k player optimizer is no longer used?

    Need help with a large bonus room

    Bob, Your setup looks really nice. Thank you for the information. I'm very grateful to Gregg Loewen for spending a lot of time talking through everything with me. I now have a much more focused plan for my home theater room. Projector JVC RS-2000 aka DLA-NX7 and a JVC Chief mount Screen...

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl -- in 4k UHD

    Wow. I'm really disappointed to hear this. Back in the early days of Blu-Ray, I used to use the Black Pearl Blu-Ray to demo the improvements over DVD. Thank you for your review, Robert!

    Gregg convinced me that I needed a JVC RS-2000 aka DLA-NX7. I know it is going to be awesome. Thank you to everyone for the information you shared in here.

    Looking for 120" screen recommendations

    Sam, I'm halfway through your podcast and the information has been very helpful. Gregg already sold me on a nice 2:35 screen, but now I definitely want some manual masking panels. Gregg also convinced me to just block the middle window and not bother with a motorized screen.

    B&W Speaker upgrade questions

    Thanks everyone for your input. Gregg Loewen talked me off the ledge and recommended just looking for some used B&W DM-601's to make 7 speakers. My wife got on facebook marketplace and found me a guy locally who sold me two B&W DM-603 towers for $350. The seller was very friendly and had...

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    I really appreciate all of the advice and recommendations that everyone has given me in here. Gregg Loewen graciously spent a lot of time on the phone with me on Tuesday and helped me focus on what I needed to start with. I am getting the Denon AVR-X6700H. I definitely have an eye on those...

    Looking for 120" screen recommendations

    Sam, I look forward to hearing the podcast. Gregg, If I don't go motorized, I think I have to block the two windows along the 20' wall. Should I look into a different layout?

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    Thank you for all of the suggestions. If I go with the XPA-DR2 for the mains, what would you recommend that I use for my center channel?

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    Thanks. That's what I figured. While I'm upgrading my equipment, I've gotten the bug to upgrade my 20+ year old speakers too. If I splurge on something crazy like the B&W 702 S2 or 702 Signature, will the Emotiva amplifiers work alright with them? Emotiva's 20% off sale ends soon. It is...

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    I really appreciate the advice given here. I need to look at the differences between the various Denon receivers. Should I be at all concerned about the fact that Denon uses Audyssey room correction when others like Dirac are supposed to be better?

    Looking for 120" screen recommendations

    I really appreciate the recommendations. I will check out Stewart, Draper, and Elite Screens. The majority of my viewing will be movies. 2.35.1 is intriguing, but 16:9 seems like a less complicated screen size - especially if I get a motorized screen.

    Looking for 120" screen recommendations

    Hi everyone! Our new house has a large bonus room approximately 20'x27' over the garage. I'm going to turn it into a dedicated home theater room with a pinball machine in the back. I am thinking about getting a motorized screen that will come down in front of some windows on the 20' wall. We...
