    SVS Questions

    The ULD-15 was expensive and highly rated in its time. It was an audiophile product before Velodyne became a mass market product. Reviews are all excellent. I just have no reference to compare it to SVS. It has developed a rattle or popping sound at idle. However, if I lay it on its side with...

    SVS Questions

    I currently have an old Velodyne ULD-15 (15" driver) that is beginning to have problems. The ULD-15 was high end at one time and seems to perform well. If I replace it I would like to see a drastic improvement. Does anyone have any idea how these old Velodynes perform compared to an SVS...

    LCD vs Plasma

    Has anyone compared the Sharp LC-45GX6U 45" LCD to Plasma displays. My understanding is that LCD displays exceed the quality of plasma and do not have burn-in, heat and power consumption issues.

    Don't like direct-rad surrounds. Why do you?

    Has anyone tried M&K tripoles? Do they really bridge the gap between direct and bipole? Thanks

    Want to know a typical audio equipment sales margin?

    Just pay your tax and margin. I know we all would hate to see Britney give up the $7000.00 a night hotel rooms!

    Looking to Buy an Internal DVD Burner...

    Yes, VCD is low quality. The Sony DRU510A/DWU12A and the Pioneer DVR-A06 both can write all formats. Try Newegg.com or Googlegear.com. Tom

    Which is a "safer" bet: Going the DVD-R/RW route or +R/+RW route?

    Ron, The manual of my XP50 says that it will play DVD-Ram and DVD-R but not + or - RW. It does not mention DVD+R. Do you know if the XP50 will read DVD+R? Thanks Tom

    Outlaw 950 Pre/pro Or New Receiver??

    I think I would be impressed by my 950 at up to twice the cost, even with the green power button. Next step up for me would be an Anthem. Tom

    Does the RP91 have the chroma bug? It was hot last year, how is its value against current products? Thanks Tom

    Yamaha going down hill?

    Your salesman probably should have said "We cannot compete with the big box stores on Yamaha products so we will focus on product more suited to our business" Slamming any product they do not carry is the standard story at most B&M's. Tom

    Older Pre/Pro or new Receiver

    Why not get a new pre/pro? The Outlaw 950 is an incredible bargain at $899.00. It can hold its own with and outperform some "flagship" receivers. Yes, it has 6.1 and 7.1 but their use is optional.
