    When are ONKYO 2017 Receviers coming out?

    Does anyone know when Onkyo will be releasing their 2017 receivers? They released the 2016 receivers in March of 2016 so I was thinking it might be about time for them to release their 2017 models. Hoping to find a closeout sale on a TX-NR555 from an authorized dealer after the 2017 models are...

    How do you turn on your sub with no AC outlet on receiver?

    I have an older Sony ES receiver that occasionally drops audio or makes clicking noises so I have been looking at new receivers. One of the first things I noticed is that the new receivers do not have an AC outlet in the back to plug a sub into (at least that's the case with the Onkyo's I'm...

    Questions on Sony Upconverting DVD players

    For those that own a Sony Upconverting player, does the Digital Coax transmit sound when the HDMI connection is used for video directly to the TV? I'll be running HDMI to my TV and Digital Coax to my Receiver and want to make sure I'll get sound that way before purchasing the DVP-NS710. Also...

    Hidden Hills Would buy that on Blu-ray (or even DVD if no Blu-ray) the day it came out!

    Favorite XM Channels?

    I like your thinking! My Presets (in order that I listen to them) are: Ethel Lucy Fred Fungus 80's on 8 Flight 26 If all these fail (and that's pretty rare), in goes a CD. :) Rob

    Malcolm in the Middle - Series Finale

    After the last episode, I'm wondering if we never knew the family's last name??? Neither my wife or I could think of it for the life of us and that would make sense given the feedback from the mic when the principal was introducing Malcom. Otherwise, what was the point of the feedback... Rob

    How heavy can center channel be on Mits 55"?

    I've got a new Mits 55" (55313 I think) and just order the JBL EC35 center channel speaker that weighs 22 pounds. Will I have any problems placing this fairly heavy speaker on top of the Mits? I'm wondering if the top casing of the TV can take that much weight right in the center of it...

    What to do with non-anamorphic extra features?

    Got a new WS55313 and I was watching the extra features on the Stuck On You disk and have a question: The deleted scenes appeared squashed vertically (the black bars were much thicker than during the movie and the people looked short and fat) so I'm guessing they were non-anamorphic?? What...

    JBL E20 rear port speaker against wall - problem?!

    I just ordered the JBL E20s to use as surround speakers but I was planning on using speaker wall mounts like these to mount them to a wall. It looks like the speakers will be about 3-4 inches from the wall using these brackets. Also, the speakers will be angled to the side about 45 degrees so...

    JBL Northridge N24II vs. E20s for surrounds

    So is the real problem just if you want to mount them directly to the wall? So that there is NO space between the back of the speaker and the wall? Thanks again, Rob

    Can't display 1080i on Mitsu HDTV

    Thanks for all the help guys - I got everything working last night. Amazing HDTV picture now!! The problem was that there was a composite cable attached to Input 2 and that was the input that the Cable Box device was mapped to. I created a new device, mapped it to Input DTV (which already had...

    Mits 55613 + DVD ?

    William, I've been wondering the same thing about non-progressive DVD players with an HDTV... From everything I have read, the Mitsu WILL upconvert the 480i DVD signal from a non-progressive scan player to 480p for display. I just ordered one of the last 55313's from Sears but won't be...
