    Noobie Planning a New Projection System

    There's a great store down around the Philly area that has several (6-10) separate rooms w/different projector setups. I was there for a training gig and it's been awhile so I can't think of the name. If it comes to me I'll post it - but maybe someone in the Philly area can help w/the...

    Energy Veritas and Monitor Audio Gold Ref.

    "I am kind of leaning towards the Monitor's as the Energy's are a little too laid back for my taste." Both are great quality speakers. Go with what YOU hear - that's all that matters. Good Luck and enjoy!

    DVD SW for Toshiba laptop?

    My company just upgraded my OS to XP Pro and I want to try and utilize the DVD drive for my travel. I have Intervideo DVD SW from my home PC, but when I try to install it it says it's "not a qualified Gateway machine" :frowning: Does anyone know a work-around or have any suggestions? Thanks.

    Canada: PSB vs Axiom vs Paradigm, my short review

    Congrats Jedd, I too went to Canada last week and came home with trunk full of the PSB's. I did my listening at home comparing bookshelves from PSB Mini's, Paradigm 40s, Alon Rascals, Meadowlark Audio, and B&W CD 1NT over the weekend (driven by my 3802). After deciding on the Stratus Mini's...

    Need help from 3802 owners ASAP.

    I've arranged to have 3 sets of speakers (B&W CDM 1NT, PSB Stratus Mini, Alon Lil Rascals) for the weekend to do in-home evaluation and want to be able to do an A/B switch for the main channels. Does the 3802 allow me to jump from one set of mains to another w/an A/B? I can't seem to find it...

    What do you use to drive your SVS?

    I use a 4 yr old JVC RX-884 that's stable with a 4 ohm load. It was rated at 120 wpc - 8 ohm, so with the SVS 4 ohm load it's probably 175-200 watts. I find it's more than enough to power my 20-39. SVS says to crank the volume of the receiver all the way up then calibrate, but I can't do it...

    My shocking (to me) speaker audition story.

    Paul, I agree, what a horrible name! Certainly doesn't sound upscale like Veritas, or Stratus Gold, Nautilus etc.

    My shocking (to me) speaker audition story.

    I am in the market to replace my H/T (6.1) speaker set-up to add to my 3802 / SVS pair and just returned from an amazing afternoon of auditioning and I just had to share my experience with those of you that might be interested. Let me say, I am no audiophile, my ears are not that finely tuned...

    Alon speakers? Short speaker story, need opinions.

    I was at my local audio specialty store looking for a 6 speaker system for around $2,000 and the owner, who has been pretty good to me over the past couple years, had some interesting opinions. He suggested 3 Alon bookshelf speakers for the front and 3 PSB 10S for the sides and rear. 1 - Is...

    At what volume level do you listen to your Denon 3802?

    HUH? ;) I don't think I'm deaf, although my wife constantly tells me I have 'selective hearing' but I believe that's something else entirely. Maybe we're both in trouble, but I don't think so. I watch movies between -10 and -05.

    Denon Bass Peak Limiter?

    William, for what it's worth, I have a 3802 matched w/ a 20-39. My sub is calibrated to 83db using VE. When I watched JP3, I think my volume was set at -7 or -5 and my house was rockin', but I never bottomed my 20-39 out.
