    Denon avr-2805 review

    I've got one question not answered by the review:Will it do bas management and will the auto eq settings work through the m/c inputs?(for sacd-dvda)That seems the only area denon lags behind some other companies.(HK for example)I understand the reasoning behind keeping the sound "pure" but it...

    Room setup and EQ

    A related question then:Are there any standalone auto eq options?I know of the SOS but that only corrects one freq. if I'm not mistaken?How about multiband auto EQ?

    Looking for a pre/pro-sites for info?

    Is there someway to get a list of various pre/pros features and an overview of various ones?There are two features that I must have-BM through the M/C inputs and EQ,preferably auto.Auto EQ seems to be getting almost standard in mid=priced rec. but not pre/pros,while even the manf. sites of...

    Anything better than the Paradigm Atoms for < $180/pr?

    Titans are, what,80 more a pair? I think they'd be worth the extra money,at least for mains.But I'm biased-my first ht was titans, with atoms for rears,and the center-all for $560.And even though that wouldn't even buy 1/2 of one speaker of what I use now,sometimes I miss those...

    Small floor standing speaker shootout...

    I thought the test was based on finding the best system for $1000,but perhaps I misunderstood.But if I'm right,it follows the 550 has to be run without a sub because it would push it over the price mark.Of course it would sound better with a properly setup sub.In fact I find that the most...

    Small floor standing speaker shootout...

    craig:Great job as always.Very informative and entertaining,not easy to do.How do you compare the 550's to the 750's?I'm just curious as they are running the trade in sale now which would make the 750's cost less than the 550's for me,with trade in.I'm just curious,as I'm pretty happy with my...

    Do I have to live with the Rattles?

    I have faux wood panelling over drywall in my basement ht-and that rattles during loud passages(Fight Club,ROTK)Is there anything relatively simple and cheap I can do about it? Will an isolation platform help with that? I guess another way to say it-Is the wall rattling from the movement of air...

    Thread from the Axiom forums, "Hsu STF-2, Hsu VTF-3, and SVS PB1+"

    Wait a minute...RTR?The first speakers I ever bought were a pair of 240d's,from a cop who was making too much money,way back in the 70's.I was just a teenager,he sold them for $200.You know anything about those,Craig?I think I still have them stored somewheres.I'm prety sure thats the model #..

    Help me decide between SVS PB1-ISD vs HSU VTF 2 or 3 MKII

    I was in the same situation and finally went with the vtf-3 mainly because of the price.Getting free shipping closed the deal for me.My room is 28x14x7.5 and the sub fills it effortlessly.With both my wife and me on the sectional and the vtf-3 about 8 ft away the whole couch shakes during the...

    sub reference level

    Wow...I've never had a question or concern addressed better than the replies to this thread.Thanks for all the info.(incidentally,I've found I watch films loud-at about -5 below reference.But mucic is much lower-at about -15 to -20 is a comfortable volume.I'm thinking film level is so high...

    sub reference level

    So,if I'm listening in my normal position and I'm reading between 74-80 dbs,I'm approximately 25-30 dbs below reference level?
  17. Doug Fogle

    sub reference level

    Okay,I've got a really stupid question so be kind.What exactly is reference level in terms of dbs?In other words what should I be measuring on my ratshack meter to know I'm playing at reference level on on my system>I know I normally play lower than reference so I wasn't overly concerned but now...

    Liton lvd-2001 questions before purchase

    it will upconvert to 1080i-not true HD but a very fine picture nonetheless.There is a secret menu to disable copy protection-do a search and you should find the link.I don't know if its needed however-I have yet to play a disc it doesn't upconvert flawlessly,even without disabling macro

    Quick review on 1080i scaling Liteon LVD2001 DVD Player

    about the 3.01 beta upgrade...I've read of a lot of problems with it-freezeups,etc.Is the improvement in PQ worth the extra irration?

    Vienna Acoustics

    I would agree-Bach is a great sounding speaker,but to get a rich room filling full sound from VA I think you would have to go Beethoven,which is up there cost wise.But the bach is definately an easy speaker to fall in love with

    Quick review on 1080i scaling Liteon LVD2001 DVD Player

    I just want to say a big THANK YOU to Nathan h for allowing me to purchase his spare unit at a very reasonable price-clearly,he could have sold it for more with little effort but just as clearly he did it to share the joy this player could bring and not make a profit on his good fortune of...

    Quick review on 1080i scaling Liteon LVD2001 DVD Player

    thanks Nathan-you have PM.A side note on dell-I contacted them several times when the 2001 supply began to dry up and they always responded that my order would be filled.When they cancelled,they tried to claim it was at my request!I never said anything about cancelling in any mail to them-in...

    Well sob story time-Dell just notified me my order of 10/29 has been cancelled=after notifing me 2 days ago it would ship within 48 hr.Spent an enjoyable 2 hours listening to muzak and bing transferred around from people who refused to help but wouldn't transfer me to anyone who could,but enough...

    LiteOn "secret menu"

    Okay'very briefly...do you need to be able to access this to playback commercial DVDs in 1080i?And,if so,how do I find out how?This is the only thing holding me back from buying this unit-I want to be sure I can watch movies in 1080i.

    Quick review on 1080i scaling Liteon LVD2001 DVD Player

    okay,my wife has had a resigned attitude about all HT purchases-amp.new speakers,new dvd players-her response has always been "I thought it sounded(or looked)good before".When I told her about the 2001 and its price,she said wow...

    Quick review on 1080i scaling Liteon LVD2001 DVD Player

    I'm with Anthony on this,but I am sorely tempted.But the updated firmware can be downloaded to cd-rom?So even a computer idiot like me with a 5yr old HP Pavilion could do it?

    Questions on LiteON 2001

    Okay.Ive read the whole thread on this and have a few areas I'd like clarified.Started a new thread because of the length of the other.Here goes...1)Will the 2001 upscale to 1080i straight out of the box or does it need the firmware updates to disable macro?The other threads are confusing on...

    DVD Review HTF DVD REVIEW: "28 Days Later" (with screenshots)

    I think I remember reading they changed it due to negative response from test audiences.I agree it is better,but the ending they finally went with is kinda clever so I'm not too disapointed.Anyone remember a Br. film called The Day of the Triffids?This reminded me strongly of that along with...
