    I don't know about comparisons between TOSLINK optical vs. HDMI (both digital), other than the HDMI connector is not that great in terms of durability. However, both are digital, and as such will...

    Got it. I meant to use it simply to show that it didn't make sense unless the rest of your equipment matched, which for most people it won't. I don't have anything against people having $X in a...

    If you know even a little bit about amps and what to look for in a used amp, I would strongly recommend going that route. It will save you a boatload of money, and you can potentially upgrade to the...

    I... like to brag about how cheap and worthless my equipment is... apparently? News to me, but okay! :D :D

    Hi Scotty,

    I think the Denon 5803 is a great receiver. I haven't owned one myself, but I did consider getting it as well. For $200-300, it's unlikely you will find a good set of separates. At...

    For the most part, I would say inept. I have yet to see anyone at BB half as knowledgeable as Microcenter. An employee could have accidentally put them there, or after a customer put on in the wrong...

    Also, don't connect any inputs directly to your amp unless you know what you are doing. Without having your receiver yet, you might connect an input with too high of a voltage, and that would be bad....

    It depends on the sub, whether it will accept speaker level inputs. Most powered subwoofers are designed to accept line inputs, and provide their own amplification. You would need a pretty powerful...

    I resent that. While I may not have noticed that the last reply to this thread, which was on the front page no less, was months old, I hardly think I deserve being called a troll for posting on a...

    I'm looking at primarily the audio quality. I want optical i/o, 7.1, and at least 5.1 multi-in, but I don't care about hdmi. I prefer used, because it's cheaper (e.g. I saw a Parasound C1 ($6000) go...

    I would strongly recommend the Oppo BDP-83. It has an excellent set of features, includes SACD and a full set of quality 5.1 analog outs, among other things. Plus, a little googling will get you a...

    Oven/BBQ black paint from Lowes... it has a higher temperature rating than engine enamel and stays on better. Oh, and it's cheaper.

    What's that? You don't care about performance? You only care...

    Lowes, Home Depot... etc. If you want higher quality, I recommend shopping at an auto-parts store, Kragen, NAPPA, etc. They will have some very nice black paints, and can probably recommend one to...

    You may want to also look into HSU Research subs (link). Their price-point is typically higher, but they offer excellent products and have a sale going on right now for the STF-1 (-$50).

    I used the monoprice ones on mine, and I have to say it sounds great. If you're the kind of person that buys $10,000 interconnects, they're not for you, if for no other reason than that they will...
