    Stacking Components (Receiver on top of DVD player)

    Thanks for the replies. I was afraid that the receiver was consider a heavy object. Guess that means its time for a new entertainment unit and widescreen tv! I knew putting it on top of the receiver was not option. Not enough ventilation for the Receiver, and too much heat for the DVD player...

    Stacking Components (Receiver on top of DVD player)

    Hey guys, Quick question. I got a Panasonic CP-72 DVD player for xmas. I am quickly reaching the limits of my garage sale TV cabinet. For the time being I would like to put my receiver (Onkyo 797 - 35lbs) on top of the DVD player. The manual for the DVD player says not to put any heavy...

    Impressions on Panasonic CP67

    Hi all, I am in the market for a Progressive Scan Multidisk DVD player. This player seems like it has everything I could want and it won't break the bank. Before I shell out the money, does anyone have any suggestions or comments on this DVD player or any of its competitors( ie. Sony...

    Onkyo 797 or 898 DD dropouts on Satellite or Digital Cable Feeds

    I wanted to ask if any of you had the Dropout problem while watching Vertical Limit on HBO. I have Directv and watched it this weekend and did NOT have any dropouts. Someone here mentioned that all DD 5.1 movies on HBO were experiencing dropouts. Just wondering why I didn't hear the dropouts on...

    Exchanged the SR600 at the end of the 30 days (long)

    Tim, Like you, I kept my Onkyo 600 to the end of the 30 days and decided to return it. I think it may have held up but there was something psychological going on in my mind that wouldn't allow me to enjoy it knowing that it was not producing the power as advertised and that someone had...

    Differences between SVS 25-31 PCi and 20-39 PCi

    OK! I just rushed over here from the SVS page. I placed my order just minutes ago for the PCi 20-39. From everything I read, I am really going to enjoy it. For those of you who have ordered from SVS in the past...how long did it take before you received the sub? I hope it doesn't take...

    DirecTV DD Audio dropouts

    AHHHH! This is good to know. I just posted a similar question thinking it may have had to do with the Onkyo receivers and their DD dropouts on certain DVDS including JPIII, Pearl Harbor, Atlantis, etc.... So you are saying this is related to the service provider and NOT our precious receivers...

    Onkyo 797 or 898 DD dropouts on Satellite or Digital Cable Feeds

    Hey Everyone, After weeks of researching/agonizing over which receiver (the Denon 3802 or the Onkyo 797) to purchase I finally decided to go with the Onkyo 797 because I have owned onkyo before and for the most part have been very happy with them. I am aware of the ticking problems they have...

    Differences between SVS 25-31 PCi and 20-39 PCi

    Thanks for all the suggestions/responses. While the 16-46 is tempting I don't think it will fit height wise into my room... It might look awkward. Since I was planing on spending $549 on the 25-31 I think it will be worth it to go and snag the 20-39. My room is 20x18x9. Thanks again! ~Chris

    Differences between SVS 25-31 PCi and 20-39 PCi

    I am looking into purchasing an SVS sub in the next couple weeks. I am new to HT and I love movies with explosions that rock the house as much as the rest of you. I was originally only considering the 25-31 PCi. However, now with the sale I am considering the 20-39 PCi as well. My question...

    New Onkyo 797 - ticking fixed?

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I think I will take a chance and get this receiver. I called the local service shop and they said they had only seen one 797 with the ticking and it wasn't a huge problem to fix. Hopefully, I'll get one that has already been fixed in production. I was...

    New Onkyo 797 - ticking fixed?

    I am thinking I will order the Onkyo 797 in the next couple days. I wanted to know if anyone has checked with Onkyo to see if there new units have been fixed so I won't have to go through the agony of not having their receiver while it is in the shop being fixed. If anyone has any information...

    Denon - Authorized Dealer

    I am thinking about purchasing the Denon 3802 online. I have seen it for as low as $719 but I am not sure if this is a Denon Authorized dealer. If you have the Denon 3802, where did you get it from and what price. Thanks, Chris

    Diva Owners - Quick Poll

    Thanks for your replies MikeAF, PomingF and Nico. All three of you seemed to suggest separates as the best option. I am new to home theater audio and not sure really where to start. The onkyo 600 I know does not have pre-outs. I bought it from CC and am still within the 30 day return period...

    Diva Owners - Quick Poll

    Diva Fans, I recently received my 4.1, C3, and 2.1s. They sounded great out of the box and are sounding better everyday. I am driving them with the Onkyo 600. There have been a lot of messages going around saying the Onkyo is underpowered. While I am not completely convinced it's...

    Onkyo TX-SR600: First Impressions [and Comparison to the 595]

    I just wanted to thank Norman for his graciousness at helping me to get the receiver at $399. I walked in to my CC and they told me they weren't "SUPPOSED" to do this, but they were busy for a Thursday afternoon and I guess didn't feel like arguing with me. I guess alot of times it just...

    Thank you for putting my mind at ease Jeffrey. My speakers are arriving tonight. Can't wait too hook them up and hear them sing. Thanks for all your help and suggestions. Have you been able to sell your HTDs? Or, are you still convincing all potential buyers to get the Divas? :D Thanks...

    Diva 4.1 Impedance and Onkyo 600

    Hi all, I just bought an Onkyo 600 from CC a couple of weeks ago. The min. impedance says 6 ohms. I am patiently awaiting the arrival of my Swan Diva 4.1 speakers. However, I am a little bit concerned because on the website the specs say the 4.1's have a nominal impedance of 6 ohms...

    Onkyo TX-SR600: First Impressions [and Comparison to the 595]

    I was wondering if someone could e-mail me a scanned copy of the CC receipt for $399. I got it for $429 less than 30 days ago, but I could use that $30 to buy two DVDs! ;) If e-mail is not possible could someone fax it to me? I have to find a fax number though.... Thanks, Chris Sharp
