    Any validity to this statment: "Avoid daisy-chaining your HDMI signal: Joel Silver of Imaging Science warns that connecting your source to your receiver via HDMI, and then linking from your receiver to your HDTV, degrades the picture quality."

    If you could bring a dead rock star back to life

    Jaco Pastorius - bass player for the jazz fusion band of the 70s and 80s Weather Report, whose bass solos in the higher register (and other talents) granted his being voted "The Greatest Bass Player that ever lived" in 2006. Although rock was not his genre, still an outstanding musician.

    My daughter wants to know,,,,,,,,

    All grills aren't black - my grills are gray just like the enclosure and they look fine to me. I suppose black grills would be a nice look now that I think about it. I've often wondered why SVS didn't offer that option with the SBS/SCS line - a black, white, or gray grill,,,hmm. But again...

    My daughter wants to know,,,,,,,,

    and now so do I out of curiosity: She was watching me browse through home theater photos as I usually do, and we got into a conversation about ugly speakers. We both agree that if anything would earn the title "ugly' in an HT, more than likely it would be speakers - not saying that they all are...

    HD Radio: Is it worth it?

    Now there's where I have a problem - the channels available are limited, at least for now anyway. I like smooth jazz are there are no jazz HD Radio broadcasts in my area. But the websites where I get the channel info all say they will be adding new channels. So I guess in the future there will...

    Need a work-around

    Hmmm, that looks like it just might work. I couldn't wait for a real solution so I have something rigged up/makeshift at the moment using some old stands and the boxes the speakers came in. I bought 4 Polk R150s from Fry's for my bedroom setup. $49.99 a pair - a deal I just couldn't pass up...

    Need a work-around

    If I'm understanding the directions, don't these options involve putting a hole in the speaker?

    Need a work-around

    Does anybody know a good (and cheap) work around for mounting speakers on the ceiling/wall and the speakers do not have the holes in the back? And they must be mounted, not placed on something - like an actual little shelf for example. There's no room for that because there are two windows at a...

    5.1 or 7.1 ?

    Sorry but I don't think I worded my question correctly - I'm currently at work and my students are distracting me with zillions of questions and stuff that I have to look at "right now," however, I think Mr. Hamm's reply was close enough to what I was looking for.

    5.1 or 7.1 ?

    5.1 with dipoles in the rear is what I'm enjoying right now. . Hmmm, I was wondering if this is the answer to having 5.1 in the bedroom. My bed is against the wall so I don't have optimum speaker placement. Currently the surrounds are wall mounted, facing each other, and about 2-3 feet above...

    Getting a new HDMI receiver soon,,,,,,

    I just ordered the Yamaha RX-V863 from OneCall. It had all that I wanted and a great price - I also added the 3-yr protect plan. I liked the power the RVX1800 has but I figured 105 WPC is enough. The Onkyo looked good and I know you can control the heat factor - I just didn't want to be bothered...

    Getting a new HDMI receiver soon,,,,,,

    Well if that's the case I'll go back to what I was looking at before which is the Denon 888. For 3 HDMIs though I was also looking at the Onkyo 705 and 805, but I was concerned about the Onkyo's rep for running hot. I just want to make sure I get true HD audio because that has become important...

    Getting a new HDMI receiver soon,,,,,,

    Hi, I will be purchasing an HDMI receiver in the very near future. Currently I have HD cable, the Toshiba A2 (I will be getting the A35 soon also), and I plan on getting a Blu-ray player, that's 3 HDMI inputs. I have an HDMI switcher already with 5 inputs, so my question it this: Should I get a...
