    Any good Black Friday deals?

    Thanks everyone. I actually found a better deal on this unit. I purchased it for $750 - free shipping and no tax. There is an authorized Denon dealer selling these units with brand new with damaged boxes. A damaged box is definitely worth a $150 trade-off to me.

    Rear speakers - bluetooth or other option?

    Hi all. Due to my living situation the last couple of years I have only been running two tower speakers and a center channel. The room isn't ideal for side and rear speakers, mainly due to wiring. I am highly considering an alternative to a traditional wire based speaker for my rear speakers...

    Any good Black Friday deals?

    Yes, I intend on getting additional speakers for Atmos purposes. Also the extra power would be nice. I frequently listen to music through my receiver. Are there any better options out there for around the same price?

    Looking for a new sub

    Thanks again, Robert. Great info. I appreciate it. Here is the amp I currently have, but will be most likely upgrading this in the near future. http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Pioneer+Receivers/VSX-1023-K I'm guessing the phase control is a software setting? This is...

    LG OLED and HDMI 2.1

    Thanks everyone. I purchased the new tv and am running my old HDMI cord from my receiver to my tv. I would say it is roughly 8-10 years old. I just ordered a new HDMI 2.0 cord. Do you think I will see a noticeable difference when I swap the new cord for the old?

    Looking for a new sub

    I may be interested in the DIY. I can cut wood fine. The only thing is, I would prefer the enclosure to be made out of something other than wood (unless wood is the best) and have a port. Also I would like the enclosure to have some controls potentially, just as any other sub would have. Any...

    I am really considering buying a 65" OLED from LG that is currently on sale. This one: OLED65B7A However, I know that HDMI 2.1 will be released soon. I am unsure if this TV has it. If it doesn't, should I hold off on buying until next year? I know the new HDMI will get a big increase in...

    Time for an upgrade

    I looked into preamps and external amps. I don't really understand the point of preamps. Is it meant to replace a receiver entirely or work with one? Does a preamp have any sort of amplifiers inside of it?
