    Panasonic RP-82 Audio Question

    Is there way to tell the RP-82 to play CDs through the analog rather than the digital outputs? I'm stumped. My RP-82 connects to an Integra 7.1. Though I have the analog cables connected to the DVD input as well as the digital coax, the analog inputs are not recognized. It just occurred to...

    Panasonic RP82 alternatives?

    I just bought an RP82 because of its performance capabilities and bang for the buck. It replaces an old low end Toshiba non-progressive scan player. The picture of the RP82 is excellent on my Sony 61HS10 RPTV, but ya know, the interlaced Tosh wasn't a heckava lot worse. While overall I...

    25-31PC or CS Owners: Happy?

    I'm on my third SVS purchase, a pair of Plusses this time. In both cases my decision was painful, difficult to make up my mind. I had sold my 16-46 CS's and wanted the most impact, so I ordered 20-39CS+s. I also liked their smaller size -- let's face it those 46's are big. But I wanted the...

    Auto-Power Switch for Samson Amp?

    As I researched this auto power idea for my Samson, I discovered Adcom, Monster Power, and Panamax gear that surge=protected, applied filters to the power, and could turn your gear on and off in a sequenced fashion. I thought it worth the expense to offer some protection to my equipment (which...

    Help: Uneven bass response. Would 2nd sub help?

    Bill, Can you explain or refer me to somewhere that I can learn about the 2, 4, 8 divisibility you mentioned? I understand the concept of bass's long waves and these cancellations and standing waves that can develop, but I need to understand more of the nuts and bolts. Thanks!

    Auto-Power Switch for Samson Amp?

    Outstanding! Good info on the Standby mode. My Integra DTR-7.1 does that. I may have to check this puppy out.

    Auto-Power Switch for Samson Amp?

    I checked out the Sears item. Unless I'm mistaken, it appears it has no automatic function -- you have to manually switch it on and off -- so it really wouldn't meet my requirement of applying power as the Receiver is turned on or off.

    Auto-Power Switch for Samson Amp?

    Chris, Wow, that's exactly what I was looking for initially and a great price too. Since the BFD doesn't draw much current and the Samson has a delay when it turns on, my original plan was to run the BFD off one of my Receiver's switched outlets and Samson off this device. They'd both turn...

    Auto-Power Switch for Samson Amp?

    Thanks, Wayne. You're a wealth of info. I've read many of your posts on EQing -- one of the reasons I just bought a BFD. Cured a major dip at 33-35Hz (for crying out loud!) and a major peak at 55Hz, plus a few lesser ones. Now I'm within a db or two across the board except for a gradual...

    Auto-Power Switch for Samson Amp?

    Thanks for the link to Klipsch, Achim, but I don't see anything there that relates to my question. Could you please tell me where to look on that site in case I am missing something? Wow, when I was returned to this subject after writing my reply, you had already answered my question...Thanks!

    Auto-Power Switch for Samson Amp?

    I'd like my Samson sub amp to switch on and off with my receiver, but I can't plug it into the receiver power outlets because of its power requirements. Does anyone know of a device that would let me switch power from a separate outlet to the Samson based on the power going to it from the...

    Does anyone know anything about this mystery SVS?

    The box Tom is referring to is the little unit that will increase sub out voltage for receivers with impedence mismatches with the Samson, not a sub enclosure. Oops, sorry Tom. You replied while I was writing mine.

    No sound from 16-46+

    Regarding the 1/4" plug going into the Samson, I found a cable today that may interest you. I bought a BFD 1124 at Mars ("the musicians planet") today. Since the BetterCables cable would now be plugging into the BFD, I needed another cable with 1/4" plugs at both ends to go between the BFD...

    Where to Buy PSB Speakers Inexpensively?

    Will, I have PSB Stratus Minis, C5i and 10S. I got them through Ronny's Stereo and got a good price. They also sell some high end brands, which is how I found them in the first place. Talk to Ronny and bargain well. Ronnys Stereo Factory Outlet 1014 B Green Acres Road Eugene, OR...

    Thanks Wayne, I've seen a lot of your posts. I don't have a BFD but was considering one.

    Behringer BFD - can you compensate for no subsonic filter?

    Is it possible to use one of the bands on the Behringer to act as a pseudo sub-sonic filter? How low a frequency can the bands on a BFD work?

    SVS 39 vs 46 - Anyone heard side by side?

    I have a couple of CS+ on order. Problem is, after going through all the research on all the forums, corresponding with Ron and Tom, even having owned a pair of CS's, I placed my order...then doubts started to creep in about whether I have made the correct choice. This upgrade, for me, is for...

    Receiver Bass Limiter vs EQ Subsonic Filter

    Yes, there is definitely a benefit to flattening the response in your room, and I intended to do that as well. But my question is really about the effectiveness of a subsonic filter vs the bass limiter on my receiver in allowing the maximum SPL from my subs. For example, I've read in...

    Receiver Bass Limiter vs EQ Subsonic Filter

    Considering an EQ for my subs... I'm trying to determine which is a better approach to allow max SPL without bottoming: - the Bass Limiter adjustment on my Integra DTR 7.1 which allows me to crank up the bass to the point of distortion or bottoming, then set the bass output limit at that...

    Cheap learning remote?

    Todd, If you can find them, the discontinued Radio Shack 15-1994 has been very popular with HT users. It comes preprogrammed with quite a few devices but is also a learning remote. Though its instructions claim only 4 keys are for learning, you can actually program any key. It also handles...

    New Area

    I prefer fewer subdivisions. I enjoy opening the forum and seeing sometimes three pages of topics since the day before. I like to just skim the topics and check the ones that sound interesting. Conversely, when I open a specific topic area, there are usually less than a dozen new items for...
