    in wall or bookshelf surrounds AND 5.1 or 6.1?

    I guess the main question is whether I should use direct in wall speakers as L and R surrounds facing the screen or ceiling mounted pointed down towards the listeners. The only potential problem I see with the ceiling mount is the height. The ceilings are 12' and in the seating position, I would...

    in wall or bookshelf surrounds AND 5.1 or 6.1?

    Here is my dilemma. I have a room for my HT, but it has no usable side walls. So I will do what I did the last time and go with surrounds placed slightly behind and above the seating area. I was considering in wall speakers because of asthetics and WAF. I know for sure that in-wall speakers are...

    DAD - Center channel dialogue level too low!

    While having family over yesterday for Father's day we were watching Die Another Day. The system was cranking all the highs and explosions but the dialogue was so low I had to turn up the volume up so loud that the loud portions of the movie were unbearably loud. It was only for lower dialogue...

    suggestions for home theater components

    I second the Sony ES recommendation. I recently purchased a STRDA2ES and I am quite pleased with it. If you leave room for future expansion, go with the DA4ES with 7.1 decoding.

    JBL Northridge - In search of best prices...

    I recommend adding $60 to that $350 and going for the Sony STRDA2ES for 410 shipped from Sammans. Awesome deal and awesome receiver. It really lends itself to fine tuning. I like H/K stuff, and I was going to opt for it, but Im glad I chose the Sony over it. Good Luck with whatever you do.

    Help! I think I got a bad AVIA disk!

    I purchased my AVIA disk about 9-11 months ago. Ive used it MAYBE a dozen times or so. Maximum 18 times. The inner ring is CRACKING!. Right where it goes onto the little holder in the jacket. It looks like its holding on for dear life but is ready to any minute. I think the inner ring is encoded...

    Receiver transformer hum?

    When I power up my DA2ES I find a very, very low pitched transformer hum coming from the unit. It is barely audible, but I was curious if that was considered normal. The unit gets quite warm when watching movies. I wonder if the 2 are tied together. Other than that, the unit works great and I...

    JBL Northridge - In search of best prices...

    In my opinion, no I think the N28s all around will really sound well. I was pleasantly surprised on how good the 28s sound. Very full and great range. Even the 26s all around would sound great.

    I got the original NSP package direct from Harman Audio on Ebay. 212 shipped. Sony sub on clearance from Sears (no longer avail according to their website) for 129. I bought a Sony STR-DA2ES receiver from for 410 shipped. Total 751 Phils prices seem right in the same ballpark...

    Need sub advice.

    If you can still find it, I would recommend Sony SA-WM40. Its been a recommended budget sub around here for a while. I have the NSP package with DA2ES receiver and this sub and it sounds wonderful to me. If you find it, expect to pay about 120 or so for it. If you do the mod on it, its...

    Yet another praise to Sony sa-wm40 mods

    I have a question for all the Sony mod people and subwoofer DIY'ers out there. Does stuffing the actually change the "physics" of the box? IT would seem to me that when modding, what we are doing is decreasing the area for the bass to resonate. I know most subs casings are calculated based on...
