    I have and both have been great resources. AVS is where I received the advice about the Moome and JohnWMan cards.

    CRT Connections - Advice Needed

    Hey Sami! I did find a solution. I went with the JohnHWman card. I ordered it on the 13th and it arrived on the 20th. Installed it a few days ago and so far it works great. I am going from the HDMI out on my receiver to the DVI card using a HDMI/DVI cable from Blue Jeans Cable. So far I...

    CRT Connections - Advice Needed

    Assuming I go with the Moome card for my CRT PJ, does anyone know if there's an advantage using the HDMI out (#1 Below) from the Denon 3806 to the DVI in on projector instead of using the component (#2 Below)?: #1) DVD-->HDMI-->Receiver-->HDMI/DVI-->Moome card on CRT or #2)...

    CRT Connections - Advice Needed

    I know this is a bit much to read, but does anyone know which is the best way (best picture for the money) to connect my VPH-1272. I'm leaning towards Option 3 or Option 4.

    Swan Surrounds

    I looked at Paradigm ADP-170's, ADP-370's; Klipsch RS-25's, RS-35's, and BIC HT-63's and they are all 8-ohm. I'm going to give AudioInsider a call and I'll let you know what I find out.

    Paradigm vs. Klipsch

    The reason I'm going with 7.1 is because I'm building the HT now and I want to have a system in place that will meet the current surround formats, as well as future. 7.1 is not a "standard" format today, but I'm sure it will be tomorrow. My HT is 14' long x 12' wide. Because the room is...

    Paradigm vs. Klipsch

    MikeNg Hey thanks, I just sent a request to audition the Swans. I didn't know audioenvy.com existed. What a great idea! :emoji_thumbsup: I think I'll sign-up as a owner once my HT is complete. Thanks again! Anyone else have an opinion on the Paradigms vs. the Swans?

    Paradigm vs. Klipsch

    Ok, now I'm getting even closer... Based on what I heard at UE today, I've decided on Paradigm over Klipsch. Listening to music with the Klipsch as a complete set was really nice, but after listening to movie dialog for any length, it became somewhat irritating. I started noticing every "sh"...

    Swan Surrounds

    Is there any reason why the Swan surrounds are 4-ohm instead of 8-ohm? I have a Denon 3803; would there be any issues with the 8-ohm fronts (5.2), 8-ohm center (C3), and the 4-ohm surrounds (R3)of which to be aware?

    will I notice any difference?

    Is there any reason why the Swans surrounds (R3) are 4-ohm instead of 8-ohm. I have a Denon 3803; would there be a problem with the 8-ohm fronts (5.2) and center (C3) with the 4-ohm surrounds?

    will I notice any difference?

    I've been visting the Swan site every few days, and it appears almost every faux model is out of stock. Is there something going on?

    Frank, You suggested the SVS 20-39, but I don't see it on thier website. Is it comparable to the PB1-ISD?

    Paradigm vs. Klipsch

    You're right mackie, I need to make the decision myself, but good or (and especially) bad experiences of others can be helpful. If the product is "good", but the service is poor, I would rather select a different "good" product. Any feedback on the customer service for Paragigm or Klipsch...

    Paradigm vs. Klipsch

    Thanks for your suggestions. I thought about the SVS sub, but I'm a bit nervous about buying something I haven't heard. I know they have a money back guarantee, but I'm still out the shipping cost. Does anyone have any opinions on the horn vs. dome tweeters? Again, because I couldn't do a...

    I sent BIC America an e-mail a few days ago and still haven't heard a response. Their website isn't much help either.

    Help please! - Too many speaker choices!

    Wayne, Do you know if Acoustech sells individual surround speakers for this system? I would like to go with a 6.1 configuration.

    Help please! - Too many speaker choices!

    Leigh, I just looked at the Costco website and they don't show the Acoustech speakers. Plus I am not a Costco member. Is there anywhere else I can find them? The bicamerica website doesn't tell me how/where I can find them either.
