    Re: best router for many gadgets

    I stumbled on this today: http://www.netgear.com/home/products/networking/orbi. Looks interesting, though may not be available quite yet.
  2. Re: Linksys Powerline Network Adapter Interference

    Probably not. On the other hand, hard to believe such a system would actually repel mice. We all live in a soup of electromagnetic fields, and all we ever notice is the light.

    So, what were the contenders and what were the results?

    Re: Turn off Genie auto-play?

    Thanks. I always select individual programs. Actually, I never even noticed that it was possible to select play for an entire folder.

    Turn off Genie auto-play?

    I got a Genie a couple of weeks ago, an HR54, which is a nice piece of kit, as they'd say across the pond. Love pretty much everything about it except one thing: If I have a number of shows recorded...

    Re: Yamaha Aventage RX-A1050 and 4 ohms speakers

    Hard to know for absolute sure, but you're probably fine. The 6-ohm setting on the impedance switch lowers the maximum voltage the amplifiers can put out, which also reduces the current that will be...

    Re: Sigh. I really need to pay attention .

    My DirecTV DVRs have optical digital audio outputs in addition to HDMI. Doubt that will change, as the Toslink is cheap and necessary for compatibility with old gear.

    Re: Yo Gos, I just order #1 of 2 Ryhtmik FV15HP's

    Bare wood floor is not necessarily a bad thing. Depends on how much other high-frequency absorption there is in the room, apart from what a rug or carpet would contribute.

    Re: Yo Gos, I just order #1 of 2 Ryhtmik FV15HP's

    Doubt you would be better off in the basement -- probably worse. The trouble with basements is the rigidity of the walls, so you get very little low-frequency absorption. So I would wait and see how...

    Re: adding centre channel to paradigm studio 60s

    The receiver or pre/pro can set levels and timing appropriately for the speaker locations. Some highly directional effects may not be rendered perfectly, because of the somewhat unusual positions of...

    One of the Paradigm Monitor Surrounds probably would do you nicely for reasonable dollars.

    Re: adding centre channel to paradigm studio 60s

    Timbre matching requires close frequency-response tracking between speakers, which can be achieved with different drivers if the engineers are meticulous (see, for example, three-way centers designed...

    Re: adding centre channel to paradigm studio 60s

    Except at the bottom end, which your sub will be handling anyway, I expect you'd have a hard time telling the 75F and the 15B apart by ear. (Same for a Studio 60 versus a Studio 20.) The important...

    Re: adding centre channel to paradigm studio 60s

    Okay, the pic really helps. How far out does the screen come when you swivel it out? As long as the TV doesn't get out in front of the midrange and tweeter, you could probably still wall-mount a...

    Re: adding centre channel to paradigm studio 60s

    Not sure what you mean by "flat against the wall." The center speaker would need to be parallel to the TV screen, so it would have to be athwart the corner, just like the TV. That should be fine...

    Re: Paradigm Prestige 15B Speaker System Review

    Above a certain point, probably around a few hundred dollars for speakers, price and sound quality cease to correlate strongly. You can buy good modestly priced speakers and bad expensive speakers,...

    Re: Time for some upgrades!

    Yes and no. Higher power normally brings greater current capability along with it, if only because more or more robust output transistors must be used. You need the additional current capability only...

    Re: Time for some upgrades!

    All else being equal, a larger speaker will generally be more efficient than a smaller one and thus need less power. What matters is the speaker's sensitivity, not its size. The Klipsch Reference 7II...

    Re: Time for some upgrades!

    Thanks for the clarification. That does kinda suck. Anthem has a nice up-mix mode called Anthem Logic-Music, but they don't do Atmos yet. And I always liked Lexicon's Logic7 better than PLII; maybe...

    Dolby eliminated the PLII Music mode? That would be strange. It's the same as the PLII Movie mode with adjustments to some parameters. Dolby Surround decoding has been around since the early 1980s...

    I think this usually results from some sort of setup issue, or possibly just a preference for more bass with movies and such than with music. The best sound I've ever had on two-channel music has...

    1) If the hum is mechanical (that is, it's emanating directly from the amplifier's power transformer), it might be caused by voltage drop on the line rather than DC. (Never heard of a plasma...

    Re: Anything special about sub wiring & setup?

    If you tell your receiver your system has no sub it will send all low frequencies, including the LFE, to the front left/right speakers and the sub will get no signal. I don't know how good your...
