What's in your home-theater setup?
details
After about three years of building, scrimping and saving my home theater is finally complete and I'm curious what the Engadget forum-members have in their theater or living room. Here's my setup:
Display: 65" Panasonic VT60
Speakers: Klipsch Quintet (they're the 2011 models),
Subwoofer: 12-inch Klipsch Synergy HG 300W (it hits 24Hz and makes me very happy)
A/V Receiver: Onkyo TXNR515
Components: PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo Wii U, a crappy Comcast SD cable box, Chromecast
Oh and for... Read more →

4K projectors
details
I have been enjoying HD viewing via my Infocus IN 76 projector on a 106" screen for over a decade. However I am now starting to research some of the high end 4K projectors, some of which are still pretty expensive. Is there anyone out there that is also in the market for such a 4K projector and is ahead of me with regards to research? If so I would love to hear some advice!

Why I bought a 1080p plasma instead of a 4K LED LCD
details
This year's CES drove me to buy a new TV, but it might not be what you'd expect. Instead of jumping onto the 4K bandwagon, I went with a 1080p plasma. More specifically, a 65-inch Panasonic VT60. Why? Panasonic has effectively exited the plasma field and I wanted the biggest and best possible display I could get my hands on while I still could.
As I see it, I'd rather invest in tech that's at its zenith than something that's going to be totally obsolete in a year or two thanks to ever-changing... Read more →

Basic Home theater with Digital Optical audio Input
details
I own a LG 42inch LCD that only has the fiber optic digital output for audio. That's the dumbest idea ever for a low end LCD system and it doesn't have even a 3.5mm audio output
Can someone suggest a basic home theater system which supports optical digital input?

I checked and found few options - Philips HTS-2512, Edifer S730
Philips doesn't have a very good audio quality while the Edifer is very expensive, please suggest any other good models...

Regards,
Visu

A question about 5.1 receivers
details
My receiver is a Yamaha rx-v465 and the Yamaha subwoofer is a yst-sw215. They are five years old but wanted to ask your opinion on how to set up some speakers I just bought. I bought some klipsch speakers to go with my Yamaha equipment. I have three front speakers and two speakers for the back and set it up with a device from Best Buy that enables the back speakers to work without wires as we have wooden floors and cannot run wire. The speakers work great with the Yamaha receiver and subwoofer.... Read more →

analog-to-HDMI video upconversion (up to 1080p) with Faroudja DCDi™ video processing and scaling
details
I have a DVDO unit and want to see if I get a Receiver that has analog-to-HDMI and take my video source directly from the DVD player to the receiver, will it upconvert to my projector at the higher rate even though I am only able to run it through DVI? My projector doesn't have HDMI, only Component and DVI.

Surround Sound Set-Up
details
I have a Denon AVR Receiver connected to my Samsung Smart HDTV via an HDMI cable. I have my Dish Network box connected directly to the Receiver which sends picture to the TV and sound through the speakers. Everything works great until I try to use the Apps on the TV. Netflix for example, I play a movie and no sound will come out of the surround speakers. However, if I change the function on the receiver to "TV Speakers", the sound will come out of the TV. We all know how poor the TV speakers... Read more →

Anyone Review the AAXA P2. Jr?
details
They have a "ReviewIT" program that allows you to get their projector super cheap as long as you write a review about it. I was thinking that I would sign up and review it on one of the forums.

Has anyone tried this? http://www.aaxatech.com/reviewit/p2jr_review.htm

How much does audio quality matter when buying music?
details
http://i.imgur.com/3nU7iwO.png
In a recent conversation via Twitter I came across the site mp3ornot.com which uses an A/B test to see if you can find the difference in the files. It's an interesting test to take and see if you can actually notice the difference; mind you it's still not the best since they're not local files and sources may vary.
It did get me to thinking about music quality and perhaps some peoples obsession with having the best quality when they may not even notice. If you're... Read more →
