    Dream Theater - New Song "As I Am" (link inside)

    Dream Theater is back folks!! Please remember that it is tough to judge an entire album by a low quality, radio edit of probably the most radio friendly cut on the album. I personally feel this album is going to be massive. Also, be aware that they are going for a more 'metal' album this...

    I have a problem with dust in my current location and have to dust evey day or so just to keep my equipment clean...and it's not even in an "open" rack. Any ideas on dust control? Can it hurt the components?

    DTS "Out" and DTS ES & 6.1 Discrete

    I just upgraded my receiver this week to a Ymamha RX-V1300 and had my first taste (finally) of DTS sound last night. :D :D I do have a question about DTS ES and 6.1 Discrete (and I guess really DD ES as well). My dvd player is a 2 year old Pioneer DV-525 with on-board DD decoding and "DTS...

    Is new receiver refurbished?? need info ASAP

    Just purchased a Yamaha RX-V1300 from my local authorized dealer. I won't go into details but when I unpacked it, it became obvious that the box had been opened before and resealed. It appears to have been done at the factory...the staples, sealing tape is identical. Everything in the box...

    While looking for an online version of the owner's manual for this player I stumbled upon directions to use the remote to give this player the ability to read discs of other regions. Is anyone familiar with this process for this specific player? Is this a safe process (ie, will it have any...

    Connecting external sources to a receiver

    I've searched for the answer to this with no luck and thought I'd post it here since it pertains specifically to the "Yamaha Dvd-s2300/Onkyo Dv-sp800" info being discussed. I want to jump on board with SACD/DVD-Audio and have narrowed my choice to these 2 players. Right now I'm waiting for...

    This has been bugging me for years now and I can't find the answer. The RobRoy trailer consists of two pieces of music 1) a soft piano only track going into 2) a majestic, flowing march piece. Does any one know what this is and where I can find a recording? I first heard the 2nd piece in this...

    Help from those with The X-Files Season 2 Set

    I bought this in December and have just now gotten around to making it all the way through it. The season finale on disc 7 has some audio problems. The sound seems to be very left channel heavy with very, very little coming out of the right. Also the dialogue seems to have a slight echo to...

    Volume control and dB ?

    Ok...I've had my Yamaha receiver for a couple of years now so I feel silly for asking this question. The volume knob has the following listings...at the bottom "-dB" and then as you turn up the volume the numbers go down....80, 40, 22, 20, 18 etc. How exactly do you read this? When someone...
