    Dallas, TX question on NORTHPARK 1 and 2

    I was in love with this theater. They always gave the best performance possible from a movie. It was always projected flawlessly and the sound was simply AMAZING. Northpark 1 was also one of the very first two THX theaters back in 1983. Sadly, it was shut down a couple of year ago. I have...

    RP91 and non-enhanced DVDs...WOW!

    I finally bought an RP91 as my second DVD player for my home theater. I had heard it's scaling features were really good for non-enhanced DVDs. That is an understatement!!!! I put in Top Gun and it looks like an anamorphic DVD now. Before my RP91, non-enhanced DVDs looked horrible on my...

    Rear speakers are "hissing" please help

    I have a 7.1 set up, using a Yamaha RX-v1000 receiver. I am using the 6.1 (rear center) preout from the Yamaha and running it to an old Sony receiver (acting as an amp). I then have the rear center speakers connected from the Sony's MAIN (L-R) speaker output. This works great but for some...

    Should I mount my Studio ADPs or use stands?

    I just received my Paradigm Studio ADPs. I will be using them as SIDE speakers in a 7.1 set up. Studio 40s will be used as the rears (about 3-4 feet behind me). Now, should I keep the side speakers at ear level, on a speaker stand, like the rest of my set up? Or should I mount them around...

    Front Effects Speakers

    I am very curious about these. My receiver does not support them, at least I do not think it does (Yamaha RX-v1000). I hear you are supposed to space these further apart and higher up than main front L & R speakers. Do they really add that much? I have a 7.1 set up now and I guess adding...

    Paradigm Servo-15 vs. PW-2200

    I own the PW-2200 now. However, I am wondering how much better would the Servo-15 sound..if at all. I listen to my movies above reference level and I love the bass that the 2200 gives. I do not listen to music on my system and I have heard that music is what the servo-15 is really great at...

    Friend has $1500 to spend on a complete system....

    Ok, my friend is fixing to purchase some speakers and a sub. He loves my Paradigm set up but cannot afford it. What would be a good alternative, not going over $1500? He would need 7 speakers and a sub, as I will be installing a 7.1 system in his condo. What would you guys get with this...

    Paradigm 2200 sub is bottoming out.......

    First off, I love my Paradigm 22000 sub. For over 2 years now, it has really provided me with plenty of bass. I even compared it with some SVS subs and I still preferred the Paradigm (it never bottomed out when the SVS subs did). Well, after 2 years, it is now bottoming out when I least...

    Need a new progressive DVD player, please read.

    Ok, I love my Toshiba 6200. However, I want one of those newer players, like the Panasonic RP91, that will make non-anamorphic DVDs look better. Of course, the player has to be progressive too and I would prefer it to hold 2 DVDs (like the 6200). The new player will need to also...

    ***Official TPM Audio thread (Lasderdisc comparison, Volume probs, charts, etc)

    Bad news guys, as others have said, the audio on SW: The Phantom Menace is VERY low and VERY lacking. I own the LD and have always been amazed at the quality of the sound. I finally found the DVD yesterday and put it into my player. I read reports about the DVD being lower than the LD but I...

    Problem: laserdisc player will not play side B now

    Well, I own a Pioneer 704 LD player. It is a player that can play both sides of a LD (so you do not have to get up and flip the disc over). Well, now I have to get up. For some reason it will not play the other side now. I used to be able to push B and it would flip over to side B. Even...

    Paradigm PW-2200 vs Servo-15 sub

    Hey all, I own the Paradigm PW-2200 and love it. I am thinking about adding another sub. It is going to be either another 2200 or a Servo 15. Does anyone have any comparisons between these two subs? I have heard that my 2200 can give the servo a run for it's money. But, if the servo can...
