    Missing part from stereo TV speakers

    Hi all, I got these 2 speakers from a friend who left town. They have no brand on it nor any kind of code that can help me figure it out. I tried to plug them (red and yellow plug) in my TV with a SCART adapter but it didn't work. I assume I need some additional piece (maybe some kind of...

    Does Kino understand stereo sound?

    I am really getting tired for stereo films now becoming mono films on Blu Ray. Just received LINK, which I had previously on DVD, which was stereo, but this new release is mono. I think Kino Lorber needs to find out what format (sound) the film was made and make sure they have the correct...

    CBS All Access - Stereo Only?

    Just started a free trial of CBS All Access. Roku is offering a free 90-day trial with purchase of a new device. Hate to say this, but the fact that the service is only PCM stereo and NOT Dolby Digital 5.1 is a real dealbreaker for me. Per the three service reps I have spoken with (the first...

    Stereo Isn't Stereo...

    A bit of a weird issue I discovered last night. I was hooking my vcr back up to test out some tapes, and came across something weird. At first, I thought there wasn't any sound, but it was just that I had to turn up the volume...a lot. This is where the issue came in. The sound seemed to be...

    Home Theater Set up 2.1 Stereo Questions

    I'm setting up a 2.1 stereo system with my Roku and tv and have some questions about audio downmixing to stereo. This is a good small music system I'm also using to watch TV and movies. I'm looking for help understanding how downmixing to 2 channel stereo for my system works. I understand a 2...

    Stereo subwoofer output to a mono sub input?

    Hi folks, I'm setting up a 2 channel system with a Harmon Kardon HK3470 reciever--an older model but it's got a nice phono stage built in. The HK3470 has a puzzling Left-Right pair of subwoofer outputs. It simply instructs me to use the lower (right) output if I have a mono subwoofer input...

    Good bass in a stereo setup

    I'm searching for a decent stereo speaker setup to use as a zone 2 in my garage. Would like to stay under $200 for the pair but I could be convinced to spend more if it's worth it. My biggest concern is bass out put. With it being zone 2 it will just be a stereo setup without a sub. So what are...

    No All Channel Stereo Compression ?

    I just got the DENON AVR-S530BT and it's really great. Movies sound amazing and even just the fm radio sounds a lot better than I've ever heard it. Just one thing, though. I find it really odd that there isn't any night mode compression available for the multi channel stereo mode, which is what...

    INFERNO IN 3D AND NO STEREO SOUND

    Twilight Time do an amazing job with their (expensive) releases of major and not so major films.

    Klipsch soundbar or stereo speakers?

    I need to replace a 10 year old Polk RM7 "home-theater-in-a-box" series set, as they're starting to sound worn out and giving out a rattling, tinny quality. We have a small living room setup with a 42" TV and currently using a 2.1 stereo system hooked up to a Yamaha RX-V677 receiver. We sit...

    "Multi channel stereo" (or Ext. Stereo)...it's not the devil!

    As an audio purist (I run Pure Direct stereo when listening critically to stereo sources like CDs, vinyl, high-rez FLAC), I felt the need to post this. For the longest time I've had Pioneer Elite receivers which have Ext. Stereo which is similar (the same?) to Denon's Multi channel Stereo, and...

    Two Channel Stereo with AV Receiver

    Once in a while I listen to music with RX-A2060. Is there any set-up where I would tell the receiver to output sound to 2 front speakers only ? I want to use 2 CH stereo, rather than 7 CH stereo. With 7 CH stereo I don't think RX-A2060 could output to 7 speakers simultaneously and end up with...

    Cleaning out a deceased cousin's estate in Baltimore and came across a box with a Holson 3D Stereo Viewer and slides (in a custom box) from his bar mitzvah 60+ years ago. The viewer isn't functioning so I bought a Radex 3D slide viewer on eBay to look at the slides.What a time trip! Mid-50's...

    Soundbars stereo vs virtual surround

    I have an inexpensive Philips wireless 2.1 soundbar and subwoofer and was just using the stereo mode setting for movies. The other day I tried the virtual surround setting instead of the stereo and was quite impressed. I know it's not real surround and was not looking for it to be but it really...

    Setting up a vintage 1960's stereo set-up input

    I wasn't sure where to post this, so I thought I'd try here first. I had a possibly crazy idea last night. I was listening to The Byrds, Eight Miles High. And wondered what it would be like to listen on state of the art hifi gear from the 1960's. My house is vintage mid century modern built in...

    "In Stereo Where Available" on DVD

    By the thread title, what I'm referring to is instances on television disc releases where the bumpers of the networks indicating that a particular show was "In Stereo Where Available" were included on those releases.

    In the 2003 release of The Italian Job, the guys talk about what they will get with their share of the $35M that they stole. One of the characters says, "I'm getting a NAD T770 digital decoder with 70-watt amps and Burr-Brown DACs. It's a big stereo. Speakers so loud, they blow women's clothes...

    How does a 3 speaker soundbar decide where the sound go's?

    This is something that is perplexing me. I understand that if the content is in surround sound then the left, right and center speaker will each play what they are supposed to, but what if the content is mono or stereo? One day I was listening to music when I realized how off it sounded. It...
