    Need advice on a large screen (75+)

    Sooo, my 82" Mitsubishi LED is finally dying. It was a good set for the price, but it has ruined me in terms of tv size. It sits in a large well lit room, and now needs to be replaced. What are my options? I can spend the money for a good display. Is the new 86" LG any good? I've read there are...

    Best Pre/Pro for music and HT with iLink?

    Point well taken, Elinor... I'm just getting fed up with all the clutter behind my system. Two mono's, an HCA-2, 2 DVD players, a receiver, CD player, Van Alstine T7, ATSC HDTV tuner, and DVR cable box. Imagine all the cables connecting all of the above, and 2 cats that like to trampse around...

    Best Pre/Pro for music and HT with iLink?

    Unfortunately, none seem to offer a firewire link :frowning: I might have to go with some combination of receiver and pre/pro... Sigh...

    Best Pre/Pro for music and HT with iLink?

    Okay, budget is in the range of 10,000. I'd really like an ilink to connect up my Pioneer elite DVD, freeing up the 5.1 analog inputs. Not particularly interested in 7.1 for now, 5.1 seems to do the trick nicely in my HT. The one thing I *don't* wish to sacrifice is 2 channel audio. HT is routed...

    Queensryche reissues, Yeah!!!

    Ack, was hoping to see some hint of either remastering or hi-res possibilities. No mention of it on the link :frowning: Mindcrime is an amazing album. I've heard many concept albums, but I've never heard one put together better than this one. Seamless and interesting throughout. With Empire...

    BMG's Big DVD-A Announcement!

    Surfacing is a must have hi-res format title! Listening to my redbook copy, I always wondered how much better it would sound in hi-res. Guess I'll get my wish! Woohoo! Supernatural may make my second-copy purchase list as well... Still early in the year, so that leaves a lot of room for...

    I believe that music prices are grossly inflated to support bribery

    HDTV reception with an indoor antenna?

    AAAUUUGGGHHH!!!!! I feel like Charlie Brown with the football swiped from under him! Got home to a message on my answering machine that Cablevision has canceled my service call for Wednesday :frowning: After a (long) call to Cablevision customer "service", they say that HD boxes are NOT...

    HDTV reception with an indoor antenna?

    There's more than hope, Doug! There's HDTV in them thar hills! Watching CBS right now :) I've read over at AVS that there are ppl in central NJ getting lots of Philly stations. Makes me want to try it :) When I was picking up the Radio Shack antenna to try out, there was a customer telling...

    HDTV reception with an indoor antenna?

    Update 2:! Bought a fish tape reel from Home Depot, and installed a line to the attic! Was a bit tricky, but time well spent. Can now get another (less desirable to me) station (FET). Still no PBS :frowning: Using a Silver Sensor in the attic, unamplified, the signal from CBS and FOX are...

    HDTV reception with an indoor antenna?

    Update: My Sammy T165 arrived today! Was very excited plugging everything in. I'd invested in both the silver sensor and an amplified RS model (15-1890). Was hoping against hope that the starts would somehow align in my basement HT room, and I'd get a decent reception without much tweaking. I...
