    Anyone who bought Norh speakers who regret them now?

    A friend of mine is offering to sell me his speakers. I was wondering what your feedback on the Norh 4.0 speakers are now that a lot of you have had those for a while already.

    Radeon 7500 or GeForce3&4

    Locally these are the only two video cards I can purchase. Which of them would provide a better picture for DVD playback? Are the differences that big on a FP system?

    Questions from an SVS user.

    When I watch movies, I like to run my sub a little hot (I'm sure a couple of you do), but when I turn up the sub to enjoy loud low frequencies, sounds such as footsteps get overly heavy. Am I setting my crossover too high? It's set right now at 60hz and turned on since I can't change it in...

    To SVS owners, do you really follow reference settings?

    I'm sure that with this sub a lot of people crank it up more than just 75db or 85db (depending on your speaker settings). But what I want to find out is around how much higher do you usually set your SVS when you watch movies?

    Reference Level- for what room size?

    A lot of us have calibrated our systems to reference levels using SPL meters, and most of us find this setting too loud. Just what room size is the basis for reference level anyway? Maybe its too loud because the rooms we use are too small.

    Is THX better than DTS and DD?

    Who uses the THX mode in their receivers? My Denon 5803 is capable but I haven't really explored it yet. So far I've only tried DD and DTS. What does the THX mode do in particular and how does it differ from DTS and DD?

    Difference of Amplifier and Receiver?

    In the Denon Asia site, there are two categories, one are for A/V Receivers, and one for A/V Amplifiers? How different are these two?

    Is it still worth it to buy this receiver? I can get it for around $1000? How is the upgrade?

    Denon 3802 or Onkyo 797?

    From where I live, they are practically of the same price and nearly have the same features except for one thing, the Denon has 7.1 while the Onkyo has THX Select. Which one do you recommend I get?

    How much of a difference in SVS subs?

    Comparing the PC and PCi line, how much of a difference does it have for the 25-31PC and 25-31PCi? Is it worth around $300-400 more for the PCi?(from where I'm from, that is)

    Is the Denon 3802 a 7.1 amp?

    It says in the website that it has 7 channels excluding the LFE but doesn't say it's 7.1. Comments?

    Will it improve?

    If I upgrade my receiver from 70 WPC to 125 WPC, will I also hear an improvement with the bass of my subwoofer?

    Does anyone remember someone posting a downloadable version of a Home Theater basics book? I saw it here just recently but can't seem to find the thread

    Denon 2802 or Yamaha Rx-V1200?

    With Denon being a lot more expensive from where I am, these two receviers have the same prices. What should I get? I listen to audio and movies around 50/50 of the time. I also have full range Mission 705a's so I'm thinking that from my present receiver, the Denon 1602, I'm going to benefit...

    Subwoofer incompatibility problem

    I have just recently bought Mission 705's, which are full range towers. They each have amps which power 4 8" woofers. Because of this, I have no need for my 12" subwoofer. In fact, when I turn the sub with the towers, the bass is weaker, and I suspect that they cancel each other out. Is...

    Do some people have a problem with their brightness settings? I only have a regular Sony CRT TV, and I've found that with the correct brightness setting with AVIA, it seems a bit took dark for my taste. Should I trust this and less myself adjust or adjust the brightness level a few clicks to my...
