    I think I know the answer, but I thought I would ask anyway.

    I have a new KDS46E3000 rear projection LCD. It has an iris setting of low, medium and high. I am assuming the lamp brightness level stays the same, and a mechanical iris opens and closes in front of the light source. In other words, running the iris in high will not reduce the lamps life...

    Theoretical question...

    I would like some opinions on a subject I have often pondered. I offer this as only one example. Which do you thin would sound better, a $1000 speaker system connected to a quality receiver playing a DTS-MA lossless audio track... Or a $2000 speaker system connected to the same receiver...

    Why a 2.0 track on DVD's?

    Why do discs use space for a 2.0 track? Don't DVD players have the ability to downmix a 2.0 track from the 5.1 mix? Just something I have always wondered. Thanks, Eric

    I'm only 33 years old, and I feel like an old man!

    I remember reading about the first chip capable of decoding a dolby digital signal and thinking it was the coolest thing ever. You could connect a laser disc player and get 5 channels of full-range audio. I still think it's amazing to play a CD and have the signal carried by a beam of light...
