    Bose wins again!!!

    After 2 years of reading these kinds of threads, I still don't get it. Why does anyone care what anyone else buys? The only brand that is ALWAYS criticized here is Bose. Let people buy what they want. No purchase is the wrong purchase if the customer is happy.....notice I say happy, not...

    DVI vs. Component: signal quality question.

    I'll jump on the DVI bandwagon here as it applies to fixed pixel displays. I recently had the chance to see a DVI enabled DVD player connected to a simple EDTV Plasma w/DVI in. The background "noise" in solid color areas (compression artifacts?) was eliminated.

    What to buy for my HT?

    The Optoma addresses the concerns regarding 16:9 screen vs 4:3 screens. Once set up properly, you can use one screen for both formats without needing to reset the screen position. This is covered in detail in a great review of the piece at the Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity...

    whats the deal with the bose floorspeakers?

    Opinions are one thing....but we must get our facts straight, especially when thay are presented as "I heard it from some one". Bose does indeed prohibit authorized dealers from reselling used products at a discount. This is due to the "unilateral pricing policy" concerning discounted sales. I...

    anyone ever hear of RTR?

    I used to sell these at retail in the early 80's. Some of the models were so big that the boxes they came in were the size of coffins. There was one model with 6 or seven drivers per cabinet. At the time, they were the last word in affordable rock "loud"speakers- with a fairly respected name in...

    Disappointment with A/V salespeople

    This thread began with someone being fed up with AV salespeople because of one associate's not being aware of a magazine review. As a 20+ year veteran in this industry, I'll admit that magazine reviews were the very last place that I learned anything. Most decent mid-fi/hi-fi stores expose...

    What is the difference between the Toshiba 36hf72 and the 36hfx72?

    There are a couple of other differences that some people may appreciate. I work for Cinema Series dealer are the points that I am aware of..... -Better Sound Package: If your into that stuff on a tv, it has 13 watts more power (10 of that to the sub, more options for the simulated surround...

    Best Buy won't go down in price...

    Quote-"It's not that we hate salesmen, but the negoitation is something we are uncomfortable with. Price matching is a feature OFFERED by many stores, then they try and ignore it when you are ready to purchase. Thats what burns me up." Let's try to understand "price matching". It is NOT about...

    Best Buy won't go down in price...

    "Then why is your job more worthwhile than his? What do you do for a living? Ever feel like coming in to work and only accepting half your salary that day? If you do your job and don't get paid at the end of the week, are you OK with that? A commissioned salesperson WILL give you his best deal...

    Onkyo Reciever Question..............

    The crossover on the 494 is fixed at 80Hz, as it is on all of the non-adjustable DD/DTS Onkyo receivers of the past few years.

    PLASMA SETS...limited life span?

    Two things..............first, all products that rely on causing phosphours to glow (CRT, Plasma) will fade over time. The life of a plasma, short of circuitry failure, should be similar to CRT based products. Second, Samsung builds their own plasma panels and the guts as well. Hitachi also...

    New Onkyo's

    Almost all Onkyo and Integra receivers now and in the past have provided the powewr spec into 6 ohms. This has nothing to do with boosting the rating for marketing reasons, it is just their way of emphasizing the UL approved 6ohm rating. When you read the new spec sheets, you will find ratings...

    Kenwood HTB 505

    The Sub for the Kenwood HTiB is not a powered model. The receiver has 6 channels of power, 1 of those for the sub which connects via a permanently attached (at the sub) speaker wire. The volume would be controlled via the remote or front panel controls. Thsi is a very anemic design as far as...

    Denon or Onkyo?

    Your only being "duped" if you selected it based on it's specs rather than the sound. Peace.

    Onkyo left channel not working

    Onkyo receivers will not reset the electronics when unplugged. There is a hard reset. I think on your model it is pressing the video 1 and standby buttons at he same time while the power is on. If not, it is likely a combination of Video 1 and one of the buttons on he far left.... (speaker A?)...

    Help! Integra DVD Player shows video but no audio.

    First select the DVD input on the receiver. Go into the set-up menus and then go to input set-up. Make sure that the assigned input (coax 1, opt1, etc.) matches the input that you are actually connected to on the receiver. This could have happened from dusting the front of the unit and...

    Help! Integra DVD Player shows video but no audio.

    Sounds to me like someone has reset an assignable digital input. If the unit has assignable inputs, verify that the input being used is assigned properly to the DVD input. What brand/model receiver is it? I am assumong that you are using just one of the digital outs from the DVD player...
