    Revisiting the Component Approach to HT A/V - updated thoughts circa 2009

    Sticking with the the "greatness of HDMI" i have to ask where you are using HDMI from you 2 channel sound source to your prepro or are you using the analog outs and what is your opinion on the quality of sound from either?

    Revisiting the Component Approach to HT A/V - updated thoughts circa 2009

    Thanks for the rundown RAF. I have set up my home theater room to also use as a 2 channel environment, I use towers as my fronts. I know both can not be optimally achieved. I have been wondering if seperates might be better, at least a 2 channel amp for the fronts and a 5 channel for surrounds...

    Revisiting the Component Approach to HT A/V - updated thoughts circa 2009

    So why spend 7500 and still use seperate amps? Doesnt something like a pioneer elite SC09 have about 200wpc and it only cost around 5k.

    bass trap or resonator?

    I finally built my riser out of 4x8 osb and 2x6s and carpeted. Ive read that if you do not fill in the dead space your riser can become a resonator? which I am guessing is bad? I have 3 subs in my room so im putting out some bass for sure, what problems could i have with not insulating the dead...

    I have always bought pioneer elite items and I am ready to upgrade to a hdmi compatible one. Which model do forum posters prefer? I am planning a panny 3000 projector, PS3, plus direct tv or dish network, and I will be hooking my elite 59dvd player for SACds.

    extension cord to projector

    I dont have an outlet on the ceiling so is it normal to run a long extension cord to the projector? If you just plug into an outlet what type of surge protection do you have? I have an old monster surge protector that I planned on using for the dvd player and reciever but I am going to need at...

    question about projection

    What kind of angle do projectors shoot their screen at. I want to use my far wall for my screen but I have a header that runs the length of the room, 5 feet from the far wall, and hangs down 12 inches. The ceiling for the rest of the room is 93" so the header hangs down at 81". I have a picture...

    floorstanding vs inwall speakers

    I figured he didnt know what was going on when he said if we used my 7002s we would have to point them at each other instead of toward you, unless I am confused on this...unless he read about pointing the subs towards each other and got confused.

    How ancient are my pioneer elite?

    I love my vsx56 and my dv59 too. Hate to see them come to no use. So would a PS3 work as a bluray player for this setup?

    floorstanding vs inwall speakers

    I currently have def tech 7002's clr2002 center, and bp2x and bp8s for surrounds. I am finally setting up my room for dedicated home theater so I had a home theater guy come out to see what kind of plan they came up with. He told me that they would rather use atlantic technology inwall speakers...

    I really thought I could keep costs way down on my theater because I have great, older components. But from the looks of it i may be upgrading everything to get what I want out of my dedicated home theater room. If I dont I doubt I would be happy with the results.

    placing def tech 7002's and other def tech question

    Thanks, I was just going to use the bp8s since I had them anyways, but I think I would rather get some wall mounted speakers such as the BPXs.

    How ancient are my pioneer elite?

    So tired of upgrading! Is HD sound really a huge upgrade? I may upgrade this one more time to be hd compatible but Im done after that.

    How ancient are my pioneer elite?

    I have a pioneer elite dvd player and receiver, vsx56txi and dv59-avi. I paid a mint for these several years back. How functional are these components now that HD is king? Can my receiver connect to any blue ray dvd players with optical cable for sound or am I going to not get good sound until I...

    placing def tech 7002's and other def tech question

    I am going to be using 7002's as my fronts for my theater. What do I need to know about placement of these beasts? Do I need to keep them out from the walls a certain distance? Due to space I had them placed directly side by side my large rptv, about 6 inches away from the tv on either side. I...

    ISF Video Calibrations: New England to DC. Florida, LA - San Diego

    Well, I have a question then. As I am setting up a dedicated theater room, do you think this display is good enough or should I opt for a projector? 64" seems big enough to me and I can get a rgb to dvi adaptor. Or I could just stay connected with component cables. If I use this set I am going...

    hdmi on my pioneer elite pro720

    Is this tv still a good one? I know it is ancient in electronic years but when I had voom back in the day HD looked awesome. I have not seen HD on it since then, and I do not have bluray yet as I mistakenly bought a pioneer elite 59 dvd player before hd players were out.

    hdmi on my pioneer elite pro720

    I have a 64 inch pioneer elite pro720 with only component video hookup. Is there a connector i can get to use hdmi cables? I like my tv but I read that bluray will not send true HD over component cables.
