    Home Theater and Media Room builds. Entire process documented from scratch.

    Hello, It's been years since I posted on here. Someone on this forum said it was ok to call a soundbar a home theater and I ran away screaming in terror. I hope things are more sensible now. I started construction of a complete home theater project in 2018 but was designing and planning since...

    Apple TV Atmos with old 7.1 receiver?

    Since Apple TV decodes and then sends LPCM how does Atmos actually work? Right now I have my Apple TV hooked up to an old Onkyo 7.1 receiver. I can see that it is sending 7.1 multichannel PCM for supported music and movies. Since my Onkyo receiver's other 2 channels/speakers are considered...

    Has anyone heard Auro-3D vs Atmos vs DTS:X? Is a hybrid speaker layout worth doing? or is Auro-3D a dead format?

    NIB: Marantz 7015

    I purchased this AV receiver but the dimensions will not fit my stand. My mistake is your gain. Unit is brand new, unopened in box. Asking $1949. I would prefer local pickup in metro Atlanta area, but would ship if buyer pays actual cost.

    As many of you know, when you're on a project, certain things go by the wayside. In my case, it was any recognition of Anna, starring dancer/model-turned-actress Sasha Luss. As I was viewing, it became apparent that it had been made by a master craftsman, but I didn't know by whom. It's the...

    Another beautiful 4k release from the Lionsgate library, of a film that I somehow missed totally. As Rambo films go, it's good, but seems to get caught up in the totally nihilistic concept of the plot, ie unrestrained violence, as directed by Mr. Stallone. Superb actions sequences, tremendous...
