    I was poking around http://www.projectorcentral.com looking at the new line of InFocus projectors. The new Play Big series are going to be 1080p capable. The lowest model (Play Big IN72) has a suggested price of $1299. At this price it is by far the cheapest 1080p projector or large screen...

    Bass shaker amplification

    Has anyone used a plate amp to run bass shakers? Currently I have a pair of the pro series in my couch running off a 5.1 Pioneer receiver. I saw that parts express has a plate amp for $50. w/free shipping. The Pioneer seems to be doing a fine job but I think it could be put to better use...

    Finally HD

    I have had a Toshiba 40h80 RPTV for four years. I used to have direct TV but when they first made HD available I felt it was too expensive. They just introduced the cable to my apartments and the HD package is very reasonable. I have only seen HD a couple times at a local a/v retailer...

    avr 230 and DD EX

    I just received my HK avr 230. I hooked it up, got it set up and was quite pleased. That is until I popped in SW ep 2. The receiver is supposed to recognize EX encoded material however, when the movie started, the panel displayed "EX-OFF". Everything I tried I could not get the EX to go on. So...

    Are there any inherent problems with the Harman Kardon avr330?

    I have wanted to upgrade from my pioneer for some time now but limited resources have prevented me. Now the pioneer died and a replacement is a must. I found the 330 for $450. I have always been partial to HK and am about to make the purchase. But I thought I would check to make sure that there...
