    DTS sound without using receiver's DTS decoder?

    It seems that the DTS decoder on my HK AVR-500 is having some problems. Every now and then when watching a DTS DVD the sound being output from one or more of the speakers in the 5.1 setup will include a really harsh sybillance or 'scratchy' sound. The sound could be equated to the sound that you...

    Dimensions for 20-39PCi carton?

    Hi, My 20-39PCi has arrived in my city! Unfortunately, UPS cannot set up delivery times and, as I have to work for a living, cannot stay at home to wait for the delivery. I can pick up at the UPS location but am not sure if it will fit in my car. I have a 2001 Malibu. Can anyone tell me what...

    SVS sub x-over?

    HI, I'm still thinking of buying a 1646CS and wanted to use a seperate amp to drive it. (QSC RMX850) However, in thinking about this I realized that I won't have any way to adjust the crossover freq. as I would with the powered sub. My reciever has no real bass management (HK AVR-500) with a...

    SVS to Canada?

    Hi, Just wondering if anyone has ordered SVS to Canada and if so, what is the hit on duties (if any - NAFTA??), brokerage fees and taxes? I am thinking of ordering a 16-46PCi and the shopping cart says this would be $698.75 USD shipping included. This would be just short of $1000.00 CAD. I...

    Is using front channel pre outs better than using LFE output?

    I was looking at some new subs yesterday and was told by the salesman that using the front channel pre outs on my reciever was a superior connection for subs than using the LFE out (single rca out. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? My current setup has the pre-outs running to a...

    What should I be seeing?

    If I watch a 2:35:1 "enhanced for widescreen" DVD on a widescreen tv, should I see the black bars at the top and bottom without using a "stretch mode" on my tv? Tosh 65hx83 with pioneer dv-563a-s. DVD set to progressive. TV set to "film" with 540p or 1080i, whichever looks better for the dvd...

    How important is progressive scanning? Tosh 65hx83

    I have waited a couple of years now to buy an HDTV compatible RPTV. (Used to have Tosh 50" 4:3 RPTV) I always thought the greatest advantage of going to an HDTV compatible TV was that I could use progressive scanning from my DVD. Now I'm not so sure. With my new TV I still see scan lines at...
