    PROCESSOR'S ??????

    I've owned or tried out B&K's, Rotels, Sherwoods, Outlaws, and even a few Lexicon units. IMHO, Anthem makes the best processors in terms of Price/Performance/Flexibility. Also, they have the best upgrade path on the market. In terms of sound, they are always near the top in music/movies...

    FS: 8020 Modular Framing for DIY Audio Rac- Same as used in Salamander Synergy Series

    This listing is only for those serious DIY rack makers who are looking to build the best. Salamander Synergy racks are world reknowned for their ability to costomize and their overall strength and stability. This mostly comes from their extruded aluminum bars and the use of sliding t-slotted...

    Looking to unload some great cables that I do not need. I am looking to sell quick, so the pricing is in accord with this. MIT Terminator II RCA Interconnects 2M - $30 These cables are a little older than the others, but still work great. One of the cables has a small piece of the RCA tip...

    Lexicon MC1 Vs Anthem AVM20

    IMHO, for ease of use and features, the Anthem takes it, hands down. For sound quality and Logic7, the Lexicon wins. The Lexicon is really two to three generations behind in terms of features. It does not include a 5.1 input, balanced inputs or outputs, or component video switching, not PLII...

    Need help in choosing a Projector. Opinions and recommendations appreciated

    The distance from projector to screen is either going to be about 10' or 6' (depending on where I set it up). I would like to have a screen size of at least 60" diagonal with either distance. Are there other recommendations that any of you would like to throw out? Any make/model that seems...

    Need help in choosing a Projector. Opinions and recommendations appreciated

    After spending about two weeks and many hours online researching and comparing while trying to figure out what plasma to get, I am too exhausted and worn out to do the same with regards to a new projector, so I would appreciate it if y'all could help point me in the right direction. I will lay...

    Carnivale (Season 2)...

    This season is going pretty well so far, with a lot of the issues of last season fleshed out and explained. Now that I look back on what was once a convoluted story arc, I understand why there was so much going on under the surfact in the first season One thing that brings a smile to my face...

    Project Greenlight: Season Three (merged)

    I really like the way that this series is going. Before, when they were deciding solely based on the story/script/directorial talent, it seemed like a very utopian view of how a movie gets made in Hollywood. Now, with such an emphasis on "making money," and the fact that the original...

    lcd direct-view vs. plasma

    I am basically in the same boat as all of you in terms of the whole Flat Panel debate. From what I have researched, I have discerned the following general truths: 1. LCD is still more expensive than Plasma for the same size and resolution, at about a 1:1.4 ration for plasma:lcd. Also, LCD's...

    24 Season 4 ongoing thread (Merged)

    Pretty decent episode. I would rank it a 7.5/10 in terms of ranking it against other 24 eps, an 8/10 when comparing it against all other television shows. When they started showing the traffic and the contamination cleaning due to the core meltdown, I kept waiting for the Fox news anchor to...

    Seperate processor, opinions.....

    Chris: "Hey, Elinor, the Sea called. They've ran out of shrimp." Elinor: "Well, Chris, guess what. The Jerk Store called, and they ran out of you!" Guys, please, enough with the arguments. While you both bring up good points, don't take each person's opinions/comments as personal...

    Seperate processor, opinions.....

    I would say that if you are lucky, and you don't mind buying used, the Anthem AVM-20 is the way to go. They average about $2k on the used market, and that is with the v2 upgrade (which is crucial). If you are looking at new products, the B&K is probably your best bet, although the Rotel 1068...

    M4P/ACC to MP3

    I think the best program I have used to convert Audio files is Media Monkey. You can find it almost anywhere to download, and it is free (not shareware, no trial period, FREE). I am not sure if it can convert protected audio files, but I can't see why not. Give it a try.

    The O.C. Season 2 thread

    I have to say, it looks like they got their mojo back. The idiotic story lines continue, and once again Marissa is turning into the poster child for every afterschool special ever made. Now that she's turning lesbo, I can't really think of any other storyline they can put her into. By the way...

    Arrested Development Season 2 thread

    Did anybody pick up on the possibility that Steve Holt might be gay? Maebe seemed to pique his interest when she said that her mom was a dude. Maybe (Maebe?) by casting Steve Holt as a woman in the school play, Tobias has unintentionally skewed his sexual identity. Or maebe (maybe) I'm looking...

    Most impressive SACD?

    The Dave Brubeck Time Out 2ch layer is pretty impressive. Don't really care for the MC layer, though I feel the same way about the Tommy SACD release. Great 2ch, uninspiring M/C Again, have to mention DSOTM, AKUS Live, Beck Sea Change, Also, the Mobile Fidelity series, especially the Aimee...

    Arrested Development Season 2 thread

    They should get that doctor into every episode somehow. He and Henry Winkler. And maybe also the cop that mutters "Yeah" every time he gets the last crack at Oscar.

    RESCUE ME (ongoing discussion)

    Still my favorite player of all time, and even back to when he was playing for the Canucks and gooning it up on a nightly basis. I had a feeling that Janet was looking to do something drastic, especially after she had broken up with that Wall Street pussy. Never thought she would do this...

    bands that "sell out"... how do you feel about it?

    Browsing through the previous posts, there are many great discussions going on about the levels of commercialism in the music industry, and all started because U2 decided to make a 30 sec Ipod commercial. Incredible. Just some thoughts: -While some might construe the Ipod commercial as...

    Where to connect CATV ground breaker for amp AC hum?

    Are you sure that the isolation transformers and cable splitters you use have enough rated bandwidth? I had the same problem with ground loops, and I purchased something called a ground gaurd which got rid of almost all ground loop interference. I got this model instead of the Tributaries model...

    How to break into separates.....

    If you are 70% music, Outlaw is a great place to start. Very affordable, great quality, and great customer service. It could only help for you to see if seperates are really what you are looking for, especially with the money back refund. Keep your Denon for the moment, and do a comparison...

    Six Feet Under 4.12 - Untitled *SEASON FINALE*

    Aaron, Your link goes to an article about Lil' Flip. Not sure if it was intentional, but if it was, pretty hilarious Some thoughts about the last episode: -Is it me, or did George starting getting really, really weird after he committed to "opening up" and "sharing" with Ruth after she...
