    FS: SVS 20-39CS+, Crown CE-1000 (Philly Area)

    This thread hurts, but its been two years since I have actually been able to use my sub and it looks like its going to be a while before I have a chance to use it again on a regular basis so its best that it goes to someone who can make use of it. First the history, as best as I can piece...

    i finally heard the dreaded clack...

    of my svs bottoming out. before i had an underpowered amp and its own clipping protection circuitry would engage well before any bottoming out would occur. but now im running with plenty of power and it was bound to happen. i was demoing the 'return to coruscant' scene from attack of the...

    ATTN: Denon Owners RE: removing faceplates

    Hi everyone, i recently bought a 2802 off of a forum member and there seems to have been some damage during shipping. it would appear that the input mode button on the front got pushed all the way inside the front faceplate. everything else seems to be working correctly and it doesnt look like...

    what is the use of 7 channel recievers?

    over 6 channel ones at the current moment? as far as movies go, there arent any true 7.1 channel formats, right? so either you are stuck using a dsp (if the reciever even has one) to try to extract 4 back/surround channels from 2 or 3 surround channels (5.1 or 6.1)or they are useless...

    why would all my speakers be trying to play a 20Hz signal

    i got a new sub today, and have been playing with it all day. i used a tone generator and made pure sine waves at 20hz, 19hz, 18hz, 17hz, and 16hz, and then burnt it onto a cd from the .wav file. i put it in my dvd player (its also the cd player at the moment) and played the first track...

    i have the nsp1 one right now, and wanted to upgrade the mains to either the n26 or n28. i plan on using the old n24s as the "b" speakers around my computer (as right now the setup is a bit funny and i have to move speakers all the time). now, i unfortunately missed out on jandr's good deal on...

    Achtung: Phil I & JBL N-Series Owners

    i already have the nsp1 set. however, i cant help myself but want to upgrade, and i was looking at either the n26 or n28 bookshelf speakers. a couple questions: 1) are either of these a useful upgrade, as they will be used for music and HT? 2) Is the n28 better than the n26, especially...

    why do different reciever makers use different volume scales?

    wouldnt it be easier if all manufacturers used a similar scale for their receivers' volumes? i hear people having their volume knobs at -20, or 00, or whatever. my receiver goes from 0 to 70. and then most are linear, right? yet my onkyo is logarithmic. what is the deal with all these...

    on denon's website its under specialty audio instead of home audio, i cant find it on any of their authorized e-tailers websites for sale (which is a big problem, but now my curiousity is piqued), but it seems to have really good specs for its price ~$300 with shipping. does anyone know what its...

    i think i may have the bug...

    unfortunately, 2 years of ugrad and 4-5 years of grad work will force this infatuation with home theatres to simmer for a while. so i was sitting in class today, and we are in a computer cluster in a new building, so the room is really modern. As my professor was rambling on about the gibbs...
