    Onkyo Universal 6-Disc player.

    Looks like Onkyo has a new 6-disc universal player on the market. I've been holding off on any upgrades until HD-DVD or Blue Ray players hit the streets, but this might be worth an audition. http://www.shoponkyo.com/catalog_det...&p=i&ext_war=0 Anybody seen one yet?

    Well I finally upgraded to a FP! It’s been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I sold my 55” Mitsubishi on ebay and replaced it with a DIY 98” screen and a Sony VPL-HS20 LCD projector. The picture quality is incredible! I had some reservations about LCD vs. DLP but it turns out I really...

    Opinions on Outlaw 770 wanted

    I borrowed an Anthem PVA-7 amp from a local A/V shop to see if it would be a worthwhile purchase. Although it sounds fine I really feel that it lacks the power that I think I need for my Lsi's. Any Outlaw owners out there care to offer any opinions on their experience with the 770 amp...
