    Using a Computer UPS vs line conditioner?

    Thanks for the replies! I do own my house. I live in an area where there is a lot of new construction... that is the reason for the constant power outages. They are always puting in new power lines, or running new cable to an area and cut the power line. The local power company recognizes...

    Computer UPS vs. Power Line conditioner?

    A friend of mine recently told me that he uses an APC UPS in his home theater instead of a monster surge protector or line conditioner. The UPS works like a battery pack for your HT. The system works from the batter and the direct current so you always get a steady consisten power stream. And if...

    Costs associated with speakers spiralling out of control?

    Trust me, I'm all for thinking outside the box. but I would also like to say married (don't ask me why) My wife would kill me if I tried to use milk crates as speaker stands. She has a hard enough time as-is with the equiptment rack and speakers in the living room. If I tried to pull that out on...

    Costs associated with speakers spiralling out of control?

    Now I know I'm not having any original thought here and I'm sure it's been discussed before but I just have to start this thread. Is it just me or are some of the associated costs of this hobby getting out of control? Here's my gripe. What the hell is up with the cost of speaker cables and...

    Paradigm Mini Monitors for surrounds

    Mark, I'm in the exact same situation that you are in. I've got Studio 20s in the front and a studio CC cener. I need to buy a pair of rear surrounds. I was thinking of going with the mini monitors over the 20s to save a little pit of money. Although my wife doesn't mind the speaker stands...
