    Where's the new Ascend center?

    Ben, Did they say when you'd be getting the 340? Any idea how much trade-in value you'll get? (If you'd rather PM me with the answer, I'll understand.) -mf

    Austin---where to demo headphones?

    There are only 3 mid-fi/high end stores in town, so one could just make a few calls to see what's available for dem: High Fidelity, Audio Systems, and Whetstone (my favorite).

    Pioneer 45tx Review

    Thanks for the effort. Very good review. I'm sure others will help with the post-calibration changes you weren't able to make.

    How would you rate/rank these amp-makers?

    Kevin, Why would Bryston be intriguing with its 20-yr warranty if you're continually upgrading over time? No one has mentioned Sunfire...?

    Blu Tak

Someone would complain that high-end stores and mail order houses would sell actual Blu-Tak for $15-20 for a nice sized slab (about twice the amount of that Staples stuff shown above).

    Just Set Up My Pioneer Elite VSX-45TX: My thoughts on this receiver

    How should one set an active sub's controls prior to doing the auto-calibration, including any cross-over settings? I don't have an audio setup just yet...just curious about it all for now.
