Since I started this thread... 2 months after the DVD release, it's made a drop to $12.99 at BB. 2 for $15 before May (one year anniversary of theatrical release) even hits... just watch.:)

Rel77, I'd agree if it was one of those cases in which I haven't seen the movie or hadn't seen it in a while. It's only been 7 months since I saw it.

Troy DVD, is that it?!?

I'm waffling right now, because it seems like a good deal at the usual $14.99 at CC. I liked the movie in the theater but didn't love it, and there are practically no extras for a 2-disc release. It...

My Heathers DVD is dead!?!

Bought the limited edition tin when it first came out. Watched it. Now after all that time, I plopped it into my DVD players and none of them play it. "No DVD detected" or error messages to that...

This is one of the major keys in having two instead of one speaker behind you.

In a 10.2 system, there's like a zillion (okay, maybe not that many) speakers arranged in the front of the listening...

Yeah, Theater Wide 1 on Toshibas is probably the mode to go with since it's a smooth stretch that leaves the center of the picture undistorted. TW2 is a zoom into the picture, so the top and bottom...

My guess is, since the Denon DVM-4800 was pretty much the Panasonic RP-71 with a 4MB buffer, the upcoming Denon 1600 DVD player sounds somewhat like the Panasonic RP-61 with a 3MB buffer.

I don't follow Apex enough to know much about them, but anyway... They have a model called the AD-7701, which may or may not be out yet. It reads all formats (practically) including SACD, DVD-Audio,...

Oh, I don't doubt that at all, Nekobus. I'm thinking, according to the report at Secrets (www.hometheaterhifi.com) on DPLII, their battery of tests showed pretty convincingly that Logic-7 was the...

I have a HK 310 that I use as a preamp until my "perfect real pre/pro" is available and I can afford it. I got it at less than half retail price from uBid, because it's refurbished. No biggie, it...

Why not first, get a remote like a Home Theater Master MX-500 or one of the types of Philips Prontos. That way, you can:

1) Not ever restrict yourself to one type of DVD player, one type of...

Yeah, it's preferable to match the center and mains.

But, if this is a question about logistics, then I'd go with dipoles or bipoles for the sides and a direct radiating pair for the rear centers...

I guess Jim's talking about the importance of properly setting contrast on a display, which is a different topic altogether.

I'm not the end all authority, so bare with me...

What are your mains and center? It's not vital, but it helps a little. I have a pair of Mirage OM-Rs and they are nice and warm with good dispersion.

The old SLK and PLK models have a 100:1 contrast ratio. The new fLCD HLK models have a 150:1. 50% is enough to see a difference, but hey it's still only 150:1. Samsung is also verrrrrrrry shaky as...

There's a lot of buzz about the Panasonic RP-91. That would be my first choice of under $1000 players until I hear more word on the Kenwood and Philips (Faroudja) players.

Best bet, I'd go with the Onkyo TX-DS595. In that price range, you're not going to find EX/ES decoding, but Dolby Pro Logic II is nice and useful. Don't get caught up in what certain manufacturers...

Take into account how close you'll be sitting to your surround speakers. IMHO, direct radiating probably isn't an option to go with if one of the surrounds is right next to your ears.
