    Yamaha HTR-5890 running very hot.

    Honestly, it sounds like it's failing. Chronic overheating is a common symptom of a dying unit.

    What better way to celebrate Independence Day than with a visit to The United States of Zombieland? In glorious 4K Atmos. Time to nut up or shut up.

    Yamaha HTR-5890 running very hot.

    Receivers can generate quite a bit of heat. It can also be a sign of a failing receiver if it really gets hot. As a general answer to your questions, amps typically stay "On" whenever the receiver is turned on. How much of a difference that makes in heat depends largely on what type of...

    Excellent work as always Adam. I might have to sign up for Disney+ just to see this.

    I forgot the SR8012 is modular, so I suppose there should be an 8K board. I'm guessing that sucker will cost a few clams.

    WWDC 2020 June 22nd

    Yeah, you won't be slamming everything simultaneously to capacity. The idea is one enclosure and one cable to provide pretty much everything almost anyone would ever need.

    WWDC 2020 June 22nd

    I didn't want to waste this on a thread of its own, but get a load of THIS. Talk about expansion dreams. With the power of TB3, I was wondering how long it would take for something like this to appear. No price yet. How much do you think it'll be?

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Emma – in Blu-ray

    I watched Emma today on the 4K stream. Impeccably done film, with plenty of sarcastic humor and jabs at British society. I'll have to watch it again to decide how good of an adaptation it is. It's wonderful to watch, though. I laughed more times than I can count.

    Recognizing Our Long Standing Members

    Does that mean I was promoted? I don’t know what I used to be. I didn’t realize I just had my 20th anniversary. Where’s my watch?

    Ad Astra (2019)

    I'm pretty much with you on this Walter. I started off so impressed with how the story was progressing. I was engrossed with how commercial space travel seemed to be presented in a viable way, then eventually, all I could see was the mechanics of the story straining to get the movie where it...

    I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this. I love literary adaptations.

    A Few Words About A few words about…™ Emma – in Blu-ray

    I know it's oh-so-chic to bash Gwyneth, but a few years back I viewed several of the versions that were currently available, and recall thinking that version was actually pretty good. For some reason, I tend to focus on the "Badly done, Emma!" scene when Emma is chastised for being shallow and...
