    FS: D-VHS Movies

    I have a bunch of DVHS titles for sale. These are in mint condition (most haven't even been watched). I bought them for inventory for an online rental biz (BoomShot), but business never took off, so I'm getting rid of them. All titles are $25 each plus shipping. High Crimes (still sealed)...

    FS: Harmony Remote SST-659

    I have a *barely* used SST-659 for sale. I picked one up at CES this year, but discovered when I got it home that it really isn't what I'm looking for. I used it for a total of about 60 minutes. It comes with the original box and all manuals & cable. I'm only asking what I paid for it...

    WTB: Small subwoofer

    I need to replace a small subwoofer that came in a 'Home Theater In a Box' system. I'm looking for something small (50-75W) and that's also narrow (width-wise) (something like the KLH BB-II would work) that's under $75. Thanks, Sal

    DTS on new DVHS titles

    I noticed that X2 is DTS. Will the 'older' 30K decks be able to pass this digital stream to an external decoder? (I'm assuming yes since it's only bitstream) Sal

    Denon AVR-4802 vs Outlaw 950/7100

    Yeah, I know the slippery slope of 'upgraditis'. I was toying with adding two of the Outlaw 'M' blocks for my L/R mains, too. That probably makes the most sense. Sal

    Denon AVR-4802 vs Outlaw 950/7100

    Anyone have any experience with the Denon 4802 vs the Outlaw 950/7100 combo? The Denon has more sound processing features (THX certified), but the Outlaw has more power (200W x 7 vs 125W vs 7). I really like my 4802. Just pondering a separates upgrade..... Sal

    Volume control while using pre-out?

    If I take the pre-out on one receiver for a few channels (like the surrounds), and feed it into the pre-amp input stage on another receiver, what's the deal with setting the volume? Will the volume of the 2nd (surrounds) receiver work independently of the main receiver? Sal

    Reliable Denon repair facility?

    Yeah, I tried that already. I hooked up different speakers (using different cables) with a different DVD Player and optical cable. Still hear the noise.

    Reliable Denon repair facility?

    Oh yes. Multiple times. It's weird in that it almost makes the speakers sound like they're blown. Sal

    Reliable Denon repair facility?

    Can anyone recommend a reliable (ie, competent) repair facility for Denon receivers? I've got a 4802 that makes a scratching-type noise in the background of any sound output. It only does this for digital inputs. If I switch to analog inputs, it goes away (so it's something wrong with...

    DVD Distortion or Damaged Tweeters?

    Is the distortion there on analog and digital inputs? If it's only present on one signal type (analog/digital), try a different piece of gear (like a STB). That will tell you if it's the DVD player or the receiver. My 4802 is in repair right now for something similar (any digital input...

    Ground screw on amp chassis?

    Is the ground screw on an amp's chassis for anything other than connecting to a turntable? I read that you can solve a ground loop problem by connecting a grounding wire from the amp's ground screw to either the metal box in the electrical outlet or the screw that holds the electrical outlet...

    Encoding QT movies onto DVD?

    Has anyone encoded QuickTime movies onto DVD? It looks like you can import QuickTime movies directly into Apple's iDVD, then burn them onto DVD. Anyone actually tried this? Sal

    HTF REVIEW: "American Pie 2"

    I also thought it looked like it was filmed at sunset! It definitely has an 'orange' cast to a lot of scenes.

    Denon 4802 AFDM setting?

    I foune one other thead ( on the AFDM setting on the Denon, but it's still not clear. Let me see if I got this straight: If AFDM is 'off': 6.1 (flagged) (THX EX or DTS ES) sources still play in 6.1 (THX EX or DTS ES) 5.1 sources play in...

    Difference between subwoofer & digital coax?

    Is there any difference between a 'subwoofer' cable and a 'digital interconnect' (ie, between DVD's digital out & receiver) cable? Aren't they both usually just 75ohm coax?

    Monster HTS2500 on it's side?

    There isn't aything wrong with using an HTS2500 on it's side, is there? Everything that I want to plug into it doesn't quite reach, but if I put it behind the TV (on it's side), then I can plug everything in. It's not an enclosed area, so ventilation/heating shouldn't be a problem. The...

    With the Amp and Monster PowerCenter plugged into the Ultimate Outlet, aren't you exceeding 20A? For example (mind you, these are max amperage ratings) The Denon 4802 uses 11.5A Subwoofer =~ couple of Amps That would leave approximately 5A for TV, DVD, powered towers, etc.....
