  1. Wouldn't you want to leave the jumpers on and hook the RF-7's to the Bryston? I have never had a separate Amp hooked up to my Denon, but that was how I assumed it was done.[^o)] Correct, but the original poster said "I have my Rf-7's connected to my Denon 3805 receiver as well as a Bryston 4B ST connected in to the Denon for a little bump in power." It sounded to me as though the RF-7s were connected to both the Denon and the Bryston at the same time. I was trying to figure out exactly how he has everything configured so we could give the correct advice.
  2. I suppose if I really wanted to I could hook up my Forte IIs AND my RF-7s AND my friend's KLF-30s and run them all at the same time along with my SVS sub. I think the Fortes will do just fine on their own, however. [] Plus the 56" TV will help things out nicely.
  3. How do you have the RF-7s hooked up to both amps? Do you have the LF/HF jumpers removed and have the Denon hooked up to the LF and the Bryston hooked up to the HF or vice/versa?
  4. Decent RCA cables are what you want. I looked at a pic of the back of your receiver and it shows the 7.1 channel inputs in the lower right section of the receiver's RCA input section. The outputs on your Denon DVD player should be color-coded the same as the inputs on the Marantz to make hookup easy.
  5. From what I've read on here Outlaw has a great reputation and is recommended by nearly everyone who's had their gear. You ask how many WPC is it really putting out in 5.1? Probably MORE than 125 watts as opposed to other manufacturer's inflated ratings. Rotel is another brand to consider. A preamp/amp system can cost more than a standalone receiver and many times takes more research to figure out which components work best with each other, but it does give you the best flexibility as far as easily upgrading your system without having to start over from scratch as is many times the case with a receiver-based system. There are many sonic benefits of having a preamp/amp system as well.
  6. Depending on the TV, some are set up to decode HDTV signals through the coaxial input on the back that is connected to an antenna that picks up HDTV channel feeds. No hdmi/dvi cables needed in this case. In fact my new JVC tv came with a coaxial cable splitter and a short run of cable to hook to the TV for this exact purpose.
  7. Try it both ways and see what you like best. I have a feeling you'll probably decide on setting them to 'small' though.
  8. Someone on eBay sells nice-looking Klipsch signs. I haven't seen them in person, though.
  9. Well, I went ahead and spent a whopping $7.44 including shipping for a 3 foot DVI-D to HDMI cable from monoprice.com I guess I'm not out much even if the pic quality looks the same. []
  10. Got my refund through PayPal already. Good thing, I was really peeved thinking that I got screwed with a bootleg DVD.
  11. Try connecting your Cable box directly to your TV. If it still doesn't work you might have a faulty cable or the wrong DVI type (There's DVI-D and DVI-A I believe) Do you get sound from your Cable box? How many HDMI inputs does your TV have? Have you tried swapping HDMI inputs on the Onkyo?
  12. I've been looking in to ways to get better pic quality through my cable TV's High-Def DVR. The DVR has a DVI output. I know you can get cables that are DVI on one end and HDMI at the other. Think it would be a noticeable upgrade in pic quality compared to component cables? Don't worry, I won't be buying overpriced cables from the big box stores. I'll probably buy mine from monoPrice.com for $5.03!
  13. It was down to -7 last night and the high today was only 10. Its 8 right now. We usually keep the house at 60 at night but last night my wife went to bed and forgot to turn the thermostat down so the furnace was trying to keep the house at 68 all night while it was -7 out. That's always good for the old gas bill. []
  14. I'd advise for either 3 or 4. Your current sub is light years ahead in output of any Panasonic speaker ever made. If you have a decent HDTV I'd say go for the PS3. If you don't, option 4 (save your $$) is always good. I think that you'd love a pair of RF-62s to go with that RSW-10 of yours.
  15. Well surprisingly the seller said they'd refund my money within 24 hours. I hope it turns out well and I can get a legit copy of Ep 3 for the new Oppo DVD player I'm getting!
  16. WOW. There's a lot more bass on this disc compared to the first Animusic. Much more upbeat, songs that I could listen to several times over and over without getting bored. In retrospect, the first Animusic seems more of a novelty disc with cool animation. The second one appears to have much more time and forethought put in to the animations and the music itself. I'm sitting here listening to it at -25 on my HK and its LOUD but it sounds sooooo nice. Good thing my wife isn't home or I'd be listening to it at -50 if at all! This is without a doubt a great demo DVD to show off your system. I'd love to hear a multi-channel system with this.
  17. The Sub-12 has been recommended as a superb value if you'd like to stick with Klipsch for a sub. I absolutely love my SVS, especially as I sit here listening to Animusic 2 and the unbelievable bass its putting out!
  18. For II WO = Forte 2 Walnut Oiled. A great speaker!!
  19. I emailed the seller and they haven't responded yet. I just checked their feedback and they got their 1st negative from someone else stating: "The DVD case was cracked and it was an obvious copy. Don't buy from this user!" So, looks like I'm not the only person to get scammed. [8o|]
  20. Here's what it says under details: DTS_Star Wars 3_Disc1 File System: UDF Free Space: 0 bytes Total Size: 4.36 GB As opposed to what it says under details on my Ep III full screen DVD: CHARLOTTE_DISC1_4X3 File System: UDF Free Space: 0 bytes Total Size: 7.69 GB
  21. I know there's a separate DVD section down below but this section has the most traffic so I thought I'd get the most responses here. I won a Star Wars Episode III DVD on eBay for a wide screen DVD. When I got the DVD in the mail, the outer artwork on the box looked nothing like the photo in the auction. I checked the auction and the UPC code in the auction and on the box itself don't match. The DVD has a 'Region 9' stamping on the front and on the disc itself. I emailed the seller to ask what was up with that. It plays ok in my DVD player but the pic quality really looks bad. Also, when I try and go to the THX setup screen in the options menu, all it does is play the THX title screen that you'd see before the movie starts and it won't go in to the audio/video THX adjustment area. Anyone have any insight as to what the deal is??
  22. If your subwoofer has an 'Auto' setting for power, turn it to 'On' instead. The Auto setting waits until the sub senses a bass signal and then turns itself on, causing the delay that you describe. Low pass will adjust at what point the subwoofer stops playing bass sound. Most subs can be adjusted from 40Hz to 120Hz. The number you select on the dial will cause the subwoofer to not play anything above that point. Since your can control the subwoofer's low pass crossover from your receiver, you're better off just turning the low pass on the subwoofer itself as high as it can go, which is probably around the 120Hz range. Then you can make adjustments to the crossover frequency on the fly if you choose to.
  23. If the price difference is only $20, go for the RS-35s. You can always use your receiver to adjust the output level of the surround speakers to match your other speakers.
