    Are the Onecall.com specials really as good as they claim?

    I also had good luck with OneCall. Since I am in state I had to ship my HK AVR520 to my parents in Oregon. But it was fast and the price was right. I would not hesitate from purchasing from them again.

    Axiom M22ti or B&W 601 S3?

    I believe the QSO 626 is $700 or more per pair (plus shipping). They are supposed to be amazing speakers, but a pair of those with a center would be $1,000 or more.

    Is Harmon Kardon Reliable?

    My HK520 is not perfect, but quite nice. If I had the cash of some of the HTF folk I would have purchased B&K type equipment. But that is just down right spendy...but if I had the coin I might have gone that route. Of course, some of you may have better savings plans and more patience to hold...

    Paying too much for Pioneer?

    Onecall will only sell Pioneer Elite as retail sales only. That means in their B&M store! It even states that after each Elite entry..receivers..tvs...ect

    Built 3 more subs...and a new website too... Check em' out!

    Eric, What would it take to get the plans for your Jr Sub? :D Out of all the DIY sites I've seen thus far...your Jr. Sub takes the cake in my book. Of course the Lil' Red is pretty awesome in its own right...more of a show piece. kjw

    Mirage sub upgrade

    Thanks DustinB...You are quite helpful. I can say I am little more educated on the subject. Next time I will do a search before asking. I am in tune with some of the logic I read about swapping drivers, at least for now. Sometime down the road I can build a box or tube. Just none of DIY subs...

    Mirage sub upgrade

    After reading all the fine posts and checking out the websites of the various DIY subs...I am considering a better sub.. Currently I run a Mirage MS-12. I was wondering if a Shiva, Titanic MKII, or other driver could be inserted as a replacement? Would this do anything for me or does a fresh DIY...

    HK Clarification on DD-EX

    Just wait until november when the special editions of LOTR are released. They have 6.1 DTS-ES!! Of course one is down right spendy and the other just above the normal editions. ...or do as Holger says and get the AVR8000.

    AXIOM vs SWANS DIVAS part 2

    Factory Outlet! I am not sure I understand this whole argument of weight, which keeps popping up. I have the VP150, which seems heavy enough for the dimensions. It also sounds pretty darn good..especially between a pair of M22s. My goal is for a good sounding, non-obtrusive speaker system...

    Anyone Have An HK AVR-x20 That Does NOT Auto Shut-Off???

    ;) I have to give the 520 a nod. My brother somehow convinced me that this was the recevier I needed a few months ago, even though I was not in the market. Go figure..he's the one who wanted a new setup. Now I just bought some new speakers. Oh...and the AVR520...not a problem yet!!!!

    Harmon K. Avr 520 vs. Avr 320 differences

    As I feel better about getting the 520. Just like a car, the extra power is handy in the long run. Plus the option of reassigning channels is going to be awesome when the wife lets me do another small upgrade. But for the money I spent..less than a half dozen large ones...a seperate amp will...

    Harmon K. Avr 520 vs. Avr 320 differences

    Add backlit remote, amplifier inputs, HDCD decoding, along with 20 more watts and you have the 520.

    Need thoughts on the Mission M71 loudspeakers

    The M71's have a matching center and a matching dipole surround. All the reviews love this affordable little speaker. Here is an M71 system review from the UK. http://www.homecinemachoice.com/test...inemaM71.shtml Here is a little review of the Tannoy studio from a couple years back. Link...

    H&K 520 no DTS out

    It does look pretty sweet at night. If it weren't for my brother finding this receiver I still would be using my Pioneer VSX D607S. I have to say the stated 100 watts of Pioneer is no match for the 70 watts of H/K. Plus I have just one 'mote' to worry about, which includes my fiber optic tv.

    H&K 520 no DTS out

    Thanks guys, I just played track 22 (the opening scenes of the attack) on Pearl Harbor in DTS and it sounded pretty awesome.

    H&K 520 no DTS out

    OK I was hoping I was one of the 1 percent, but I am one of the 99 percent. I thought I chose to turn it on last night, but I did not. Thanks Michael, Shrek is now playing in DTS mode. Do you hear that...I am pounding my head against the wall as I type!

    H&K 520 no DTS out

    I have an optical cable hooked up now, which is allowing me to play DD. Is it better to use digital coaxial. By the way I also tried the DTS on Shrek, without any luck. This really is my problem, my brother posted the initial message, but now my membership has been confirmed. Thanks for the...

    H&K 520 no DTS out

    The system is a an H/K 520 with a Pioneer DV414. I do not get any sound from any of the 5.1 speakers. This happens with Pearl Harbor and Fast and the Furious. I choose the DTS track on the DVDs and still nothing comes out.
