Let me preface this by saying I’m a hardware dummy. I don’t know the difference between LED, OLED, QLED or whatever.
Looking for a 65” TV to replace our aging 55” Samsung in the living room. 4K is a must as we plan to get a PS5 (as soon as we can find one) and some 4K discs. This TV gets a LOT...
I am looking for a cheaper, used native 1080p or 720p projector with HDMI from a good company (BenQ, Viewsonic, Optoma) to replace the one that unexpectedly broke.
I wanted to eventually replace the projector that broke with a 4K one when we moved to a bigger place in a year, but since my...
Well 1st off Hello to all the HTF members and i'm looking forward to some great conversations about all things Hi Fi / Home Theatre / Music, Movies and Video Games.
My System is Budget and includes a fair amount of 2nd hand Kit and is still very much in the planning and building stage.. i...
I'm looking to buy a 12" sub for 75% home theater and 25% music. Budget about $250 or less. What do you guys recommend? I thought about these.
1) BIC PL200 II
2) BIC F12
3) Dayton Audio 12"
3) Premier Acoustics PA-150
First off, I've got a modern 55" TV, but naturally the onboard sound isn't at all satisfying.
I'm on a budget of around $800, so I realise this puts me at the bottom end. I'd still rather go for a conservative real-setup than a soundbar. This will be my first build, so assume I'm a...
I'm looking to spend about $300 or less for a 4k receiver. CNet's top pick is the Onkyo TX-NR585 for $290. It seems to have all the features I will need. I do not have a 4k TV yet.
I only use a 3.1 system in our family room, and that will not change in the future. What do you guys suggest...
Thanks for the forum, I have been lurking around and learning many new things.
For Christmas we are replacing a serviceable but unremarkable JVC dvd theater-in-a-box 5.1 system. It has done its job, but now time for retirement.
I already have purchased an entirely new set up, and most of it...
I am really tempted to grab one of these to use as an option to play movies in the backyard. It's only $149 at Walmart but their website doesn't even list it anymore. It may be on it's way out, but I found 2 for sale at my local store...
Yamaha YHT-3920UBL 5.1 for 429.95 or Onkyo HT-S3800 5.1 for 249.00 (Amazon) I have been stuck and need to order ASAP. I'm leaning Yamaha but like the 1/2 of price on Onkyo? Please help! Also will take other suggestions???
Below is a home theater on a budget, for a room of size 27ftx12ft.
Please can you suggest if this is a good combination or there is a scope for improvement with minor cost increase.
Thank you in advance for the support.
Hi HTF members and guests ... Two years ago, we did six $1000 subwoofers. Last year, we did several $2500ish subwoofers.
This year, we are looking at budget gear like the Monoprice 50 watt per channel tube amp, Dayton's B652 and B652 Air bookshelf speakers in the $30-$50 per pair range, a...
I had posted on this forum a few years back and had gotten tremendous feedback. At the time I was planning the construction of my house. Now I am getting ready to actually finish the Home Theatre. I've attached a drawing of the area.
About the Room
If you are facing the screen, it is concrete...
I am in the process of redoing our backyard to make it functional and fun for the kids and family. We recently finished installing soccer nets and I am building several couches and coffee tables. We're going to add a fire pit too.
I am looking at installing an outdoor theater. I...
I'm looking for a 5.1, 4K ready receiver. This will be used only for movies. I would like to keep price under $300.
I've read good things about the following 3 receivers. What do you guys think?
1) Denon AVR-S530BT, $267
2) Onkyo TX-SR373, $249
3) Yamaha RX-V383
Thanks for any advice.
I'm setting up my home theater, bought a Denon AVR-S720W and while choosing the subwoofer I got a few options:
Dayton SUB-1000 - $119
Power output: 100 watts RMS
Frequency response: 30 - 140 Hz
We aren't looking to spend a bunch of money on a new 55"-60" HDTV and I found this TV for about $400 at Wal Mart. We already have 3 Roku TV's in our bedrooms (TCL, Insignia, Sharp) and like how easy it is to use them, how easy it is to access streaming apps etc. since we cut the cable of DTV...
My friend just purchased a house and has a decent sized bar in the basement. Probably close to 30x20. He's got $1000 to spend on speakers and is looking to upgrade from his KLIPSCH PROMEDIA 2.1 COMPUTER SPEAKERS. Online they say they are about 200 watts and he was to go much louder than that...
I've been working on a man cave for the past couple of years and wasnt real concerned with the theater side of it as I didnt think I could afford to do one that would compare to a good tv picture, but after doing some research and alot of DIY, I was able to put something together that fit into...
I have a friend who has been putting together a HT in his basement and it's nice watching football games on a 120" screen. He has a BenQ HT1085ST, which has a great picture. I looked on Amazon and they don't really sell them now. Are there any projectors with similar quality, but cheaper...
I was looking for ideas on the good old WWW when designing my basement theater. While looking through some projects on here and on Google images, I came across some amazing set ups. Way too amazing. Some home theaters seemed to have 20 foot ceilings, some were as big as the local...
Ok so no cash on hand build.
I have been dreaming about this all my life and now I'm retired and have no money I lookin for deals all the time.
Started out when we bought a house with a separate garage.
First....was a little sound Proofing
Any recommendations? I have $800 in Amazon gift cards and I'm looking for a ceiling mount projector that will be 11 ft from the screen. Currently have a 96" diagonal screen, but have room to go a little larger if I necessary. This is a space in my finished basement that will be dark with the...
Obviously I need monster cables for everything right?
Okay just kidding.
General info: Mainly for movies, using DVD/Bluray, Plex(running on my desktop computer), Netflix (using Roku 3 currently but want the best method for this system). Possibly gaming in the future. I probably...
It's been a while since I bought speakers and this application is different than for my theater room which has a full size system. I'm setting up a budget system in my family room that just needs to be an upgrade from tv speakers/soundbar or HTiB for the occasional movie or when the tv is on...
Apologies in advance as I guess that there will have been hundreds of threads like this already. I've wanted a projector/home cinema room for a while now and I've just moved house and I'm going to take the plunge.
I'm looking for a projector which will project to a (ideally) 100" screen...
