    Axiom VP-150 and M22ti's for sale

    Well, after some negotiations with wife, and due to the fact that we now have a 6 month old starting to crawl around, she has *allowed* me to get a 50" Plasma in exchange for getting rid of my 53" RPTV, but also in the negotiations I agreed to sell off my "big ugly speakers" and go with wall...

    I want a DVD player that is good with MP3 discs

    Hi, we have just built a new garage, and I am setting up a cheap surround sound system in it. What I am wanting, is a DVD player that is very good at playing MP3 CD's. An On-screen playlist would be VERY nice. DVD video playback is totally secondary here, we will hardly ever watch DVD's...

    Marantz 7300 or Yamaha RX-V1300?

    Congrats...I'm looking to make the very same receiver descision as you as soo as funds free up a little. :D I'm also leaning towards Marants before hearing, I like the added inputs of the Yammie, but my current Yammie htr-5460 just doesn't give me what I want out of my music. It is a great HT...

    It's back...South Park for $9.99! (deal is now dead)

    I did order the set for $9.99 this morning. But...I have yet to get any kind of E-mail confirmation about placing the order. Is this normal?

    Help me choose between these receivers

    Thanks for the help, AND for making me feel like an idiot :D . The inputs I was overlooking are on the front of the units! I just didn't even look there...to busy searching the backs! Having both units at the same time is definately good advice, I may see if I can pull this off. The HK will give...

    I am a full-fledged XM Radio addict! This is my story!

    Great post! I've been very close to pulling the trigger on XM...but just can't go through with it. I'm a big car audio guy, and I also have 2 vehicles. I have both of my vehicles fitted with the Alpine 7894 that Ron chose (excellent choice BTW). I also listen to a lot of music at home. My...

    Raising a sub off the floor...does it work?

    Hi, I just got a Dayton DLS 10" powered sub from Parts Express to replace my old Cerwin Vega 10" powered sub. This setup is in my bedroom, so space is kinda tight. Right now I have the CV wedged between my desk and the wall, and it fits pretty nice. The problem is, the DLS is a few inches wider...

    Help me replace the drivers in my 3-way bookshelf speakers

    I know I can't just throw speakers in and go, but I'm not looking for perfection out of this setup either. It's just that I bought these speakers for such a great price that I figured it would be worth it for just the enclosures. The box has .8 cu ft of internal volume. That looked like a...
