    Carpet spikes for DIY speaker stands

    Thank you both for the info. Darren, are those spikes only 3/8 inch long? The description on their site is vague and I need at least a 1.5 inch long spike. Troy, are they $1.05 each or 1.05 for a set of four?

    Carpet spikes for DIY speaker stands

    A buddy of mine built me 3 gorgeous stands for my center and surround speakers, and I need to get carpet spikes for them. I was hoping to find some simple plastic 1.5 inch spikes that I could put into the bottom to give them more balance. However looking at places like Parts Express, all they...

    FS: Toshiba 50H81 50" 16:9 HD Ready RPTV - Pickup Only in SF Bay Area

    Jon, Thankyou! Its always nice to hear a kind word. :) In any event, I sold the TV last night and then rushed out and picked up an Infocus X1. I'm in love! And now, I have plenty left over for my receiver upgrade as well. It's no HT1000, but I love it.

    Athena Owners Unite!!!!

    I have the AS-F2s, AS-C1, 2 AS-B1s, and a SVS 20-39 PCi powered by a Yammy 5660. They sound phenominal! Yamaha receivers are bright, no matter what their paired with, and unfortunately that affects my speakers. So I cant wait to get my Pioneer Elite 47TX. :)

    New Sony ES digital receivers at OneCall...

    How does the ES line actually perform? I would possibly be interested in the 3000 but have heard many disconcerting things about the ES line. Specifcally, this quote from a thread at AVS:

    7.1 Preamp + 7 Channel Amp for Approx. $1600

    First off let me make it clear that my home theater usage is 90% movies, 8% TV, and 2% music. But when I do listen to music, its mostly Jazz, Blues, Classical, and occasionally rock and hip-hop; and Id like it to sound good when I'm doing it. Ive gone back and forth on this issue several...

    Yesterday I had the Warranty company come out and realign the guns and calibrate the convergence settings. The image looks even better now than it did new. This is a great deal. Any takers?

    Old pair of JBL LX44s with bad woofers.

    I have an old pair of JBL LX44s (at least 10 years old) where the rubber around the woofers has broken and flaked away. Id like to replace the woofers but I'm not sure where to go to find the right 8" woofers etc. They are excellent speakers, and always sounded incredible until a few years...

    Before I made this post last night I fired off an e-mail to Athena asking if they had any plans to add di- or bi-pole surrounds to their Audition Series line, and here is their response:

    DIY Athena Audition Series Bi-Pole Project

    I recently upgraded my speakers to an Athena Audition series system consisting of the AS-C1, 2 AS-F2s, and 2 AS-B1s. I've been planning on buying a pair of Energy C-R1 Bi-Poles for approx $300 to use as surrounds in a 7.1 system. But then I had an idea. If I buy two pairs of the AS-B1s, which...

    A lot of people are looking at this thread. That tells me that 1) these people are in the market for an RPTV, and 2) they live in the Bay Area. That said, can I assume youre holding out for me to lower the price to a specific number? If so, send me an e-mail with your offer. Im flexible...
