    Speakers + Receiver for < $2000 (larger, weird shaped room)

    John, Never in 11 years have I ever heard someone suggest bipoles for rears or have I ever read it in any trade journals or white papers so.....you will have to pardon my ignorance. As a matter of fact for the most part with the intro of 6.1 and 7.1 it has been found favourable to use direct...

    Speakers + Receiver for < $2000 (larger, weird shaped room)

    Hey John, I was suggesting that he did not need to use the surrounds to fill the room for party music as you had suggested, he still needs surrounds. I know that these forum posts should generally be taken with a grain of salt as there is a lot of mis-information but like you I am in the...

    Speakers + Receiver for < $2000 (larger, weird shaped room)

    Dipoles are not going to work as they need to sit to directly on the left and right of the couch. I would suggest the rears be wall mounted at about 5.5' high about 1.5' in front of the window next to the pool table and directly opposite on the other wall. You may also want to consider 6.1, it...

    Which RPTV should I get - you decide?

    The Toshiba sets over the last 18 months have gone totally down hill in quality. A buddy of mine purchased a Panasonic and I ended up helping him pullit out of his basement 4 times in one year for service before the delaer replaced it with a different brand. So in my mind you are down to the...
