    HK AVR7000 sounds better than Parasound Amp...

    I believe the parasound manuals say to turn the gain knob for both channels all the way to the max. -Scott

    Steven Spielberg Presents "Taken"

    Well my vote is I think this is shaping up to be a great mini-series. But I did just write scifi feedback and told them they can stick their "Dream Team" crap up there black holes. Scott

    Steven Spielberg Presents "Taken"

    I am watching it right now. Did anyone else seem to remember the scene where the girl(who's car shortly stops working and gets the hood blown off) is going around the corner in the vehicle. Doesn't that shot look exactly like the shot from Close Encounters where Richard Dreyfus and other...

    Doctor Who recommendations, anyone?

    "Not only do you get Tom Baker but the other 4 top Doctors in the series!!! " Not to be nitpicky, but I think he is only in this story for a brief minute or two if I recall. :D Scott

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty?

    Hi All, Does anyone have any info who owns this film? Although I am only 30 years old, I grew up watching stuff like this on rainy Saturday afternoons. I think this is one of Danny Kayes best. Is there any news if this will ever be released? I see that there are a few other Danny Kaye titles...

    A Bug's Life: CE OOP?

    I am probably wrong, but my guess is that the CE is the only one to have an anamorphic transfer?? Someone please correct me if I am wrong. Scott

    NHT or PSB

    Hi Jim, I have the vt 1.4 and the VS 1.4. Two words..... "Get them." I have had them for about 8 months now. They are wonderful for music and Hometheater. Make sure you have a good amp to power them because they are pretty power hungry. Actually I have mine bi-amped with some bettercables...

    Any word on if Dreamcatcher's going to be good?

    The scnenes from the trailer look like it is right from the book except I don't recall a character as portrayed by Morgan Freeman(aka. Easy Reader) in the book. Of course I read it when it came out a year or two ago. Scott

    HTF REVIEW: "Amelie" (Highly Recommended) (with screenshots)

    Well, I'll be the first to say it. I don't know. I was expecting something else I guess. I mean it's good, but it's not sliced bread. ;-) I guess I did not feel the magic everyone else did. Great camera work and lighting though. I'll have to rewatch it I guess. Scott

    Star Wars Laserdiscs?

    Thanks Matt. :) I just had to know because I have a few bids going on players on ebay at the moment. I have a 53" Hitachi widescreen so I am eager to see what a LD looks like. I am figuring on using the 3D comb filter of the Hitachi and going composite into the set. Hell I figure if it is...

    "Something wicked this way comes"

    Just picked this up 2 days ago and watched it last night on my Hitachi 53" wide screen. Probably one of my better looking "letterboxed"(non-anamorphic) dvd's that I own. Go ahead a pick it up. By the version is not a flipper. Both version(widescreen/P&S) are on the same side . Scott

    Yes DVD Rot?

    I also disagree with the "dirty" comment above. While it sounds like that this is not the the case in this example, wiping a disc with no detectable dirt and or smudges has worked for me in every case. There was a thread here a year or so ago that many people had similiar problems, but most...

    Count me in. Still waiting for Omega Man. Last year they played it on New Years Eve on AMC. Looks like they aren't this year. Scott
