    Pioneer quitting Plasma TVs, going out of business?

    Yeah but OLED A) Isn't cheap and B) isn't available in sizes over 40" - yet. I too am a fan of the OLED technology, I spent about 30 minutes staring at CES. Well, if and when they are ready and cost effective I'll move into OLED technology.

    Pioneer quitting Plasma TVs, going out of business?

    Bought a Kuro 111FD today with the knowledge that Pioneer was quitting the Plasma business; honestly, I couldn't walk away from the price and the fact that I've always, always, wanted a Pioneer Elite display. Damn this TV looks great - even compared to my XBR4. Sad about Pioneer, but I'm not...

    For experienced audiophiles only please

    805s are wonderful speakers; the shop I use to work at had a set and I use to listen to them on my breaks. Well done and great choice!

    NHT is "going quiet" :(

    I love my NHTs - I've had them for 6 or 7 years now without a single problem or complaint. I hope they decide to continue to produce speakers and components; hate to see a great company dissolve.

    Paradigm Speakers + Integra Receiver

    I've always been a fan of Paradigm, I auditioned them before when I was thinking about getting rid of my NHTs - it would be worth a drive if you can find a dealer around your surrounding area. They have a very well balanced sound - accurate and clean

    New and have some questions...

    Kevin, Sounds good, you'll have a lot of choices in the 42-46" size. Here is what I would do if your budget allows - PS3 for the Blu-ray player: fully upgradeable with firmware updates, built in wireless and bluetooth controls (honestly probably the best BD player for the money)...

    Which player: PS3 or the Sony BDP-S300?

    PS3; I had a 300 before my PS3 and the PS3 beats it hand down in every aspect except no DTS MA decoding - yet. That's why I say the PS3, it is far more "future proof" than the 300. Just my .02.

    Upgrading, just a few questions

    I run all NHT speakers.....I have the older verions of the new Classic series - basically they just made them look different. My setup is as follows - Classic 4 (fronts), Absolute Center, Classic 2 (rears). I love them, they are accurate and plenty loud for me. If you could get the Classic 3...

    Upgrading, just a few questions

    Jarrod, You're welcome, and welcome to HTF. I would definately go with the Denon over the Sony. As for speakers, the SVS package looks pretty nice..maybe you could search here for some reviews, or contact SVS and talk to them - they have excellent customer service. Also AV123 makes some great...

    JBL or Klipsch? Pick from these models plz

    +1000000 Although I will say that Klipsch and Yamaha pair very nicely. Also, why would you stack bookshelfs on top of towers??? I don't understand what you mean by that. Are you thinking that you'd use the towers to be stands for the bookshelfs? If so I would highly recommend against...

    is trueDD and DTS-HD worth the upgrade?

    John you won't regret the upgrade. I'm actually excited about rewatching my Blu-ray movies.

    Two recievers bi amping?

    Warren, good morning; on the back of the 3808ci there is a speaker out section called Surr back/Amp assign - it comes after Surround B. This section can be assigned in the menu of the 3808 and used to bi-amp your front speakers. So all you would need is the speaker cable necessary to bi-amp them...

    is trueDD and DTS-HD worth the upgrade?

    OK, just got my 3808 and finally got it calibrated correctly thanks to Chris from Audyssey. Do I hear a difference, you bet. The bird that just flew behind me from left to right agrees (Watching 3:10 to Yuma), didn't hear it last time I watched this movie in regular DD. Hell, in the opening few...

    HD-DVD help

    Yeah I'm stuck with three movies - Batman Begins, Transformers, and Serenity; although I might be selling those to a guy I work with. I didn't care for the 360 HD-DVD drive.

    Denon AVR-3808CI: An Overview

    Dave, I am watching a Transformers SD through my PS3 and it looks great, Blu-rays look the same as they did running it directly to the TV. I'd have to say the video section performs wonderfully. I also re-did the Audyssey today when I got home for lunch and so far I really like how it sounds...

    Denon AVR-3808CI: An Overview

    I went in and changed the distances manually. The Rock sounds freaking awsome.....and I'm almost positive it isn't 100% correct. Thanks!

    Denon AVR-3808CI: An Overview

    Just got mine setup....doing the firmware update now. It gave me weird settings for my speakers when I did the Audyssey before; so I'm going to redo it after the firmware is complete. Seems like my sub level is a little low for it - it ended up placing my sub 25' away from the sitting position...

    Should I return my new Sony XBR4?

    Joe, If I have read everything about the 3808ci correctly it up-converts any video source and sends it out via HDMI in 1080p. So I'm assuming all I have to do is calibrate one input for all my sources.... Thanks again for your help Joe! Mike

    Should I return my new Sony XBR4?

    Joe, I think the only source I'm really worried about looking great is my PS3. But, when I get the 3808 on Tuesday all I'll have to worry about it setting one input correctly; since all my video sources will be switched through the receiver and out via HDMI to my TV. I am correct in this...

    Should I return my new Sony XBR4?

    Terri, so I messed around with some settings and it seems like I've worked out my motion blur issue...I'm watching Enemy of the State and not getting the motion blur that I use to get. Here are my current settings: Under video options - Motion Enhancer = off (HDMI 1) CineMotion = Auto2...

    Denon AVR-3808CI firmware update issue

    I get mine on Tuesday....I wonder if I'll hold off on the firmware update. Do you know what this update does for the receiver? Maybe I'll do it after it's setup; unless the firmware update resets everything. Sorry I can't be more help, Mike

    HD-DVD help

    Ok, so I went to Nebraska Furniture Mart today to look at the A3 vs the A30; I had decided on a A30 because it was only $40 more, but I couldn't find where they had them in the store. Grabbed a sales associate and asked him - and he showed me. We got to talking and he tells me Toshiba has...

    Should I return my new Sony XBR4?

    I also have an Sony 46" XBR4 - with a PS3 hooked up via HDMI and optical out for audio (this will change on Tuesday when I get my 3808ci). My picture is fine and I haven't even calibrated it - but I'm having other issues; I've messed around with the settings on my PS3 and my TV and I'm still...

    Recommended receiver

    I've always thought that Yamaha paired very well with Klipsch, heres why. Klipsch speakers aren't built to be accurate, they are designed to reproduce sound efficiently and effectively and sound good doing it, not boomy like Cerwin Vega or Bose. I've ran Klipsch off of a small little amp built...

    HD-DVD help

    I just want a HD DVD player that will play the movie without hiccuping. It drives me crazy when movies don't play right, and the add on for the Xbox didn't work well. I'll check out my local store and see if they have the A3; I know for a fact that they have the A30. Thanks for your help, I love...
