    does the quality of component cable matter?

    On a similar note, does the kind of optical cable I use make a difference? I'm just using a cheap one now, but the sound is good to me.

    does the quality of component cable matter?

    I'm currently using an Accoustic Research cable with my dvd player, and I really like the picture I receive. I will be moving soon, however, and I'm going to need a longer cable in my new setup. I was thinking of just getting a cheap component cable off eBay or one of the $10 ones I saw at...

    How good is the Xbox as a dvd player?

    Is it much better than the PS2? Does it support progressive scan and DTS tracks? I'm just wondering if it's serviceable to use until I get a blu ray player in a few months.

    help me find a laptop

    I'm going to law school next year, and I am in need of a laptop. I'd really like someone to recommend one for me. I don't need anything too fancy, but it needs a Dual Core or Pentium M processor, 1 GB Ram, 60 GB hard drive, wireless internet card, and a 3 yr warranty. I'd also like a 14''...

    I bought a 12inch Klipsch and I am unimpressed

    I have been thinking of picking up the PB10 to replace my HTIB sub as well. You cannot adjust the crossover frequency on my Yamaha HTR-5560, however. Is that important with the SVS?

    speakers stands for JBL E50s

    Can someone recommend some speaker stands for the JBL E50s? I'm looking to spend no more than $100 for a pair. Thanks

    JBL's - Here's what I want to do. Opinions?

    I have an EC35, and two pairs of E50s and couldn't be happier. I think you will like the JBLs, but I have to recommend you buy an EC35 rather than use an E50 as your center. It's much better to have a true center channel.

    The Incredibles Is, Well...Just Incredible!

    IGN's reviews are never reliable anymore. Just look at the video scores they gave the LOTR trilogy. Here are two reviews at the Spot and dvdmg: http://www.hometheaterspot.com/html/...?sequence=1076 http://dvdmg.com/incredibles.shtml

    Wasn't this announced as an HD-DVD launch title? I think I'll just wait for that.

    New Warner multi-disc sets coming!

    When can we expect these titles on HD-DVD? I really like Ben-Hur, but I don't want to buy it if an HD version is just around the corner.

    Onkyo HTS-770 vs Rocket Tykes? Which is better?

    I haven't heard the Tykes, but I don't see how they can possibly be worse than the Onkyos. I had the Onkyos for about a year, and they were terrible. The sub was decent, but the speakers were incredibly muddy sounding and lacked any detail.

    So Daman, What do you think? (PB10-ISD)

    Try out Master and Commander, U-571, or the Haunting all in DTS to give your sub a good workout.

    help using an SPL meter

    My receiver is the Yamaha HTR-5560 and one thing that I have noticed is that I cannot adjust the volume of the main speakers, only the center and the rears. There is, however, a way to adjust the left-right balance between the main speakers. So am I supposed to get the main speakers equal in...
