    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    "i hope the first films transfer/print is much improved. if it is, i won't mind double dipping as the film continues to be a guilty pleasure for me. curious about the trailer(s) for this film- i seem to recall seeing a teaser for this and the way i remembered it was shots of newspaper...

    Onkyo 602 vs. HK 330 vs. Pio 1014

    "I'm aware of Rockford Fosgate's quality plummeting when they went mass market, but have never heard that said about H/K before." It wasnt actually said anywhere officially, it was just my opinion and observation. "ooh, Polk bookshelves...I haven't had a good experience with them, both the...

    Anyone Anticipating the Raging Bull Re Release?

    I wonder Scott, because while not a god awful, terrible Stereo Surround mix, the dialogue in the current version is somtimes downright incomprehensible...I mean whisper quiet. Then, the fight sequences open up and blow you off the couch because your system is up so [email protected]#$%^((! high!

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    I saw the article on DVD Answers....wow...this is what I was waiting for...but I have some concerns, friends: -First of all, this is far from complete because there is still Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes (which I own on DVD and looks and sounds great for made for TV film), Amityville 1992...

    A Possible "Amityville Horror" Special Edition?

    Steve, Are you SERIOUS? This is GREAT news! How did MGM get rights to II and III, though? Oh, well, yeah....II was originally Orion, right, and so was III....so that would make sense that the Lion would put out a box set trilogy.....I GOTTA go check this out now....thanks a lot man!

    Onkyo TX-SR502 for me?

    Ryan, As the owner of an advanced Onkyo model from yours, the TX-SR600, I have to say Onkyo is doing the best receivers right now along with Denon (just IMO) so I would say stick with the Onkyo. I dont believe that model you mentioned is 6.1 capable as mine is, but for 5.1 it should be...

    Anyone Anticipating the Raging Bull Re Release?

    Okay, I hear you guys....I'm not running a widescreen set yet, so the picture looked fine to me. Im just worried what MGM will do with this "5.1" track after the audio on the Rocky box set sucked IMO...

    Anyone Anticipating the Raging Bull Re Release?

    What did you find as faults, out of curiosity, because the current version seems to satisfy me pretty well.

    Onkyo TX-SR502 for me?

    Ryan, Are you looking to do surround sound (5 or 6.1) with your setup? I dont think you gave us enough information about your intentions.

    Anyone Anticipating the Raging Bull Re Release?

    Rob, Did you find many faults with the current release and is that why you are anxiously awaiting the SE? I didnt seem to find many for a black and white film with a small budget; I am wondering if the 5.1 remix is going to improve the 2.0 track currently on the versions we have now. After...

    Anyone Anticipating the Raging Bull Re Release?

    My Production Manager here at work is watching and burning this film right now so it got me thinking about the Special Edition due soon; aside from the Scorcese and gang commentary, should there be an improvement in the audio and video from the version thats out now? I gotta say, I dont usually...

    Onkyo 602 vs. HK 330 vs. Pio 1014

    "However since I'm about 70% music and 30% HT, I chose the Marantz...the Onkyo's musical performance wasn't bad but there was something about it that just didn't do it for me, the Marantz sounds much warmer, richer, more expansive. Its 90wpc rating is said to be far more conservative than...

    Onkyo 602 vs. HK 330 vs. Pio 1014

    "Pat, Wow, I'm floored...never heard anyone say that about the H/Ks before, in fact I've always thought they have the most stunning looks of any receiver I've ever seen...definitely the best WAF! However I've never sat there and played with the controls so you could be right about the buttons...

    New Rocky DVD Anthology? See POST #191 on UPDATE for those who did not receive bonus disc

    Agreed; I dont know if this happened across the board with alot of people's discs, or if it happened to be a bad batch that I got, thats why I asked. I guess I will watch the widescreen side the next time Im actually "in the mood" for Rocky III....:rolleyes
