    Bowers & Wilkins - Vs - Monitor Audio??

    Marco The B&W Nautilus line of speakers is regarded as a standard in the industry. They are used as monitors at the Light and magic studios in CA. Certainly one of the better speaker out there.

    Onkyo or Yamaha?

    Chris I like the crisp sound of the Yamaha but that is just my opinion. Both companies have a good reputation and I don't think you can go wrong with either one. Have fun:emoji_thumbsup:

    The perfect speaker!!

    Headphones do go down to 20 HZ. The reason is that they don't have to move a lot of air being so close to your ear drums

    Why do we need surround sound if we only have 2 ears?

    There is an audiophile recording company (Fidelio) here in Québec that uses two specially designed microphones spaced about six inches apart to do there recordings. They take there setup to churches jazz clubs etc. . The results are pretty good.

    In an HT system, you don't HAVE to use a center channel *or* a subwoofer

    Albert The movie producers record a sound track that is mixed specifically to be played using a left, center and a wright channel. It is then logical to say that the best way of reproducing that soundtrack is by using a left, center and wright channel. Using the phantom mode is a step...

    Grado headphones have a great reputation for amazing sound and also for being uncomfortable over long periods. I would go with Sennheiser. Look at the wireless models.

    In an HT system, you don't HAVE to use a center channel *or* a subwoofer

    It is like anything else, once you get used to having something (center and sub ), it is hard to go back and do without. BTW The center channel is probably the most important speaker in your HT

    M&K 350 vs SVS PB12

    Having more than one sub in a room will actually reduce the occurence of standing waves and promote more leveled spl readings throughout the room (better bass for your guests).

    Extended warranty for HDTV?? Don't be stupid...

    Extended warranties are one of the biggest scam going. It is a veritable cash cow for for store owners and if you ever need to make a claim you will find out that your insurance contrat is not with the store who sold you the item but with a third party insurance company "GOOD LUCK". Many...

    Help! Linn Unidisk SC

    Pete don't waste your money on a pretty package. Linn is famous for pretty audio. The Unidisk, if you look at it closely is nothing more than a Phillips drive bundelled up with new Linn prosessing software in a pretty box. It is not worth the money they are asking for it. CD technology is...

    POLL: bookshelves vs. towers

    The difference between towers and bookshelfs is low end extension period. Tweeters and midrange drivers do not require a big volume to operate and in many speaker lines, you will find that the tweeter/midrange portion of the speaker is the same for all the speakers from the smallest bookshelf...

    Denon vs. seperates Question?

    Jeremy You are 100 % on the money. Corporations like Denon have an R&D budget that other so called highend boutique brands can only dream of. BTW I had a chance to visit Anchorage last summer, great city, had lots of fun.
