    I have a question about the placement of the tower speakers as rear. As far as I know, the basic principle is that place your rear speakers at least as high off the floor as your ear height when you're standing. Do you guys actually raise the height of the rear tower speakers or just let them...

    You mean $0.25/foot 12G HomeDepot wire is better than $0.6/foot Monster XP? I was planning to buy some Monster XP on ebay for about $0.3-0.4/foot. If the 12G wire from Home Depot is really better, I'll go the local Home Depot store this weekend.

    too good to be true? help

    I just won an auction of a pair of Dynaudio Audience 80 speakers (brand new) for only 255$. I haven't paid yet because I am highly suspicious of this deal. First, he is new and has no credit at all. He only accepts money order. Second, I think these speakers are worth about 1000$ in the US...
