    Need Help Selecting Low-end HT Speakers

    I buy so many electronics and gadgets its sickening. not once have I ever bought something and needed a warranty. maybe im lucky but i dont find it a big deal and worth the savings as the chances are pretty slim you ever use the warranty..... in my experience.

    An absolute beginner

    well for what it sounds like he is looking for a HTIB is not a wise investment for someone who can afford a better system. I bought a JVC HTIB and was extremely disappointed although at first I thought it was decent. but my ears learned. so I thought the reciever would be fine and instead...

    An absolute beginner

    lets hope I dont step on any feet as I seem to have before...... Rob: you say you dont want to exceed $2500, thats a great starting point if thats what you have to spend. I dont agree with advice of a HTIB as you obviously have cash to spend on something above average. when I started...

    Onkyo SR600 vs Pioneer D811

    its funny the different things you hear. I heard my particular reciever actually tested rated higher than it was from 55watts to 67watts. you never know th source, so many different things you hear on this forum. take it with a grain of salt. also I never heard Onkyo over rating like...

    Onkyo SR600 vs Pioneer D811

    I have used both the Onkyo and Pioneer.... alo JVC. the onkyo will sound way better, although I do like Pioneer but you can find the onkyo cheaper if you look around. video switching, I have many connections on my 494 and never use them. I hook my LD and dvd player directly to my tv. why...

    The poor mans reciver. Do tell what it is. Any and all opinions wanted

    it all comes down to sound..... Yamaha, h/K and onkyo are your BEST bets. Pioneer , JVC and anything else on that line is pure junk. but if I had to choose it would be pioneer. pioneer is ok for the price but still you can find deals in an onkyo or yamaha for the same price as a pioneer...

    Cheaper than Etronics.com

    ebay is good. last year I bought my nsp-1 set (4 surrounds and a center) for $210.00 shipped and a really nice/free surge protector! I got my pb-12 sub for $220.00 shipped nsp-1 set for $160 would be nice!

    The poor mans reciver. Do tell what it is. Any and all opinions wanted

    I think JVC sucks! I bought an Onkyo TX-494 after having a JVC 6010 I got the Onkyo open box at CC for $150.00 it was the best purchase i made out of all my components. depending on the size roo you have, I havent felt the need for anymore power. it does quite nice and rarely get to use...

    Laserdisc is my new god

    kevin its worth it! I paid $250 for my 704 (i wouldnt get anything less) and alot for my discs as I bought at a time they were hot. $150 for the trilogy sealed kurray and $150 for the raiders. but in the end SW was worth it all. to justify it just think a handful of times going to the movies...

    Laserdisc is my new god

    TV's def make a difference. I have a 25" 1998 tv with my 505 hooked up composttie and it looked horrible. hooked it up s-video and it looked great! now my 704 on the same tv looked horrible on s-video but on composite was a dream. logic of it all ? just makes no sense to me. :) BTW: I have...

    Optical vs Coax

    put on a pair of headphones and try. you'll hear a difference. I tend to think coax has a beefier sound. but i guess you could just turn it up loud. unless you have you ear up against the speaker you wont notice anything. I use optical for interference reasons and availability.

    Pioneer CLD-D704 a noticable improvement over D505?

    I dont know on a big screen but if I can see a HUGE difference between my 704 and 505 I would think you would def notice it on a big screen. Matt, I just sold my 505 and bought a 704 which was used maybe 15 times for $250.00 locally/private sale. I never looked back. I thought the 505 had...

    Laserdiscs on HDTVs...?

    The D-505 is better than most compared at the same level. but it isnt the greatest at cutting video noise. for your setup id go for the 704. i recently had a d-505 and just sold it. people recommended getting a 704 and after lots of reading it was the best buy. now im new to LD this year. the...
