    Audyssey setup and speaker polarity

    I recently got a new Denon receiver with this feature and used it to set up my speakers. I have always done it manually and when it was done I was not happy with the sound. I read through the long q and a post and re tested as it recommended with similar results. It also said my left front...

    A few issues with Sharp LC-32D40U

    I purchased a new Sharp Aquos about a month ago and tuned it with Avia. I am getting a weird faint redness on some flesh tone areas that I can't seem to get rid of. It looks like the skin is flushed or rosey where it shouldn't be. Any ideas what could be causing that? Another issue I am...

    Problems with Sharpness on Avia

    I was just tuning my new tv last night, Toshiba 65H84 and when I was adjusting sharpness there was absolutely no change of the test pattern. Is there a setting counteracting the changes? On all my others TVs I have never had a problem and always can tune it. Any advice?

    Problems switching from Dish to Cable

    I just recently switched from Dish Network to Cable(Comcast) and the new signal seems much worse than Dish. Even on my direct view tv I am getting lots of noticeable jaggies especially noticeable on reds, the resolution is horrible. It is more pronounced on my 65" RPT. What is the deal...

    General woodworking question

    I am looking at getting an air nailer of some type. What is the best all around for cabinets, speakers and crown molding? Would a brad nailer be sufficient or is a finish nailer needed? I haven't owned either so any opinions are welcome.

    Surrounds: In wall or in ceiling?

    My parents are setting up a 6.1 HT and when I went to check out the progress this weekend I noticed the company installed the rear surrounds and rear center in the ceiling. I don't have the model number but the speakers are MK inwall speakers. I know the correct placement per Dolby is parallel...

    Tell me how feasible this idea is

    I am toying around with the idea of my next sub. Currently have a dual Shiva Sono and am very happy but as always there is never enough good bass. After seeing the "closet" sub on M. Knapps site I had a few ideas. My HT is set into an alcove in my family room. THe size is 6' wide and 2.25'...

    Loud bass effects on fish?

    I have asked this here before but never gotten a conclusive answer. How do loud low frequencies effect fish in aquariums? I plan to put my Sonosub near an aquarium and do not want to injure the fish. What are the thoughts on this topic?

    Anyone else notice the actor rollover?

    Between Oz and Law and Order SVU? I have seen at least 5 actors from Oz get leads roles or start doing work on L&O. Kinda weird seeing a bunch of characters from a different series all wind up on a different show. Do they share the same casting people or something?

    THis is for a friend and since I don't know about inwalls I need some to choose from. These need to be low-mid end as cost is a factor. They will be used for mostly ambiance and not blasting music. ------------------ Brett

    I am almost ready to start finishing my 81s and I choose some Formica(blue and black to match my 281s) Depending on how this turns out I will probably refinish them as well. I did some searches and didn't find all the answers I needed. First I will cut the laminate big on the edges and then...
