    q/a about cd players. should i buy a 300 disc, 5 disc, or stay with my dvd player

    check out e-bay if you want to take a risk. i bought 2 changers so far, both pioneer, one 100 cd & the other a 25. both are working fine so far. i also have my original pioneer 100 cd player, bought new, many years ago and that works great too. occasionally e-bay has a 300/301 cd changer.

    Just bought A SPL meter...

    it's my understanding that the sub should be set at 0 and to do adjustments at the sub itself. did you use a tune up dvd or the receiver's test tones? if not, i suggest a tune up dvd would be the ticket. it will help your sound as much as the spl meter did.

    Paradigm Subwoofers

    they enjoy an excellent reputation by most. don't forget to take into account the size of your room. a smaller room can manage with a smaller sub.
