    Please help me find speakers for 2 channel music

    I am looking for a pair of speakers that are only going to be used for listening to music. So naturally they would have to reproduce music as accurately as possible. My budget is $200-300. Can anyone recommend any speakers at that price range?? Thanks

    Blu-ray Player with built in Wi-Fi ... best one for streaming?

    If your primary use is streaming then the 2012 Sony line are great. The S390 and the S590 are both available at reasonable price. Both do 1080P and 5.1 audio from Netflix. They also stream 5.1 audio from Amazon on Demand, something that the Panasonics do not do. The main difference between the...

    I just recieved the new 2 disc edition of both of these from Deep Discount dvd and was shocked that in the back it states that both films are presented in the 1.77:1 ratio when both were shot in Anamorphic Panavison and should be 2.35:1 . Now I am hoping that this is just a typo on both...
