Denon vs Yamaha receiver by Jason Wong
I'm looking to upgrade to a new Pro Logic II receiver and am undecided between the Denon AVR-1603 or the Yamaha HTR-5550. I can get both for the same price of $400 CAN. I haven't been able to compare the two yet as they are sold by separate dealers where I'm from. Just wanted to get the...

Choosing Speaker Wire by bdowns
I building my audio/video system and have a question on which gauge wire to buy. I going to have 2 in-wall speakers about 25 to 30 feet away from my receiver, which is a Denon 1905. Is 16 gauge wire enough or should I buy wire that is larger or smaller? Thanks in advance.

Difference between RCA/component and digital coax cables? by Mac Cool
What is the difference? I didn't have a digital coax long enough to reach my sub so used a component video cable in a pinch. I know I can hear a difference using them but I'm wondering what is the actual difference? My receiver has 2 coax inputs and 1 optical input; however, I need 2 optical...

Jupiter Audio products by Bill McCullough
Are these things really as overpriced and under-engineered as everyone says they are? I see that they sell on Audiogon for around $450 a pair, is the $1600 MSRP a scam?

Whey do people buy Bose Acousticmass systems instead of something like this? by SalMX70
The thing I don't understand is if people actually have such low standards that they think that Bose Acousticmass systems sound good, and if very small satellite speakers are very important to them, they why don't they buy something like the KLH HTA6108 7 piece home theater speaker system and save...

Recommendations on audio cables by Bruiser
There's always a lot of discussion about video cables and the pros/cons of DVI over component, Monster over other brands, etc. What about audio cables? Are there any clear differences in what's on the market? What would be the best choice for a Samsung HLP-5063W which has jacks for only analog...

(again) Monster cable alternatives, and is it all worth it anyway. by Thomas G. Marshall
Note: I'm expecting to be flamed from here to china for asking this, because variations have been asked a million times here. I've read through a number of them, but would like another stab at it. AFAICT, the /universe/ uses essentially three kinds of AV/audio/s-video/component cables. I'll...

Hi there, After recently having a bunch of DVDs stolen from my place, I've decided that I want to back up my entire collection. Luckily the ones that were taken were easily replaceable, but I realized I'd be really depressed if some of my rarer and favorite movies were lost or damaged somehow. My...

ARG!! Need DVD player that both STOPS and goes to MENU "whenever I want" by Thomas G. Marshall
I need an inexpensive dvd player. But I'm also sick to death of dvd players telling me that I cannot go to the main menu whenever I want. *Are there any dvd players which have this capability* ? Example: I like to bypass all the crap at the beginning of dvd's, and even the "fast play" options...

Anyone w/ real-life experience using Cat5 for speaker wire? by Peter Franks
Not interested in hyperbole, interested in an actual example of someone using a single pair in Cat5 for a speaker run, most interested in a 20-30' run, presuming an otherwise capable system/speakers. Thanks

Why on earth would anybody choose 16:9 over 4:3? by EtherGnat
After careful consideration I've decided that only an insane man would choose a 16:9 television over 4:3 (although in some sizes/technologies you may not have a choice). Consider the following example: As of 4/19/04 Best Buy had two TVs of the same brand (Samsung I believe) and series so you would...
