  1. 1. Try buying a stereo -> 2X mono splitter, plug this into the center/sub output, then plug your rear speakers into that. One of the channels will carry the center signal, see if that one buzzes. 2. Try moving the SC to a different pci slot. ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  2. Sound quality is excellent. Not too happy with the build quality though- had to replace one preamp because of static, the replacement preamp hisses. Overall though I am still happy with them. Will probably stick with Klipsch when I go to 6.1 ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  3. Yup, the ONLY good feature on the 2500 is the built-in decoder... My friend bought a set, then I bought Promedias to outdo him... did I ever! ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  4. The headphone jack on the GTXP will not be used for center/sub, there are already outputs on the back of the breakout box for that. The headphone jack (I imagine) will be used to output a rear center channel (or two), which are a part of DTS-EX, 6.1 (o 7.1) surround. ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  5. Damn, more dilemmas.. now I'm thinking I should just get a set of 4.1 and use them with my 4.0's for 7.1. If I buy 5.1 I will have a few extra sats... ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  6. One of those, or another 5.1 card.. I have a sb live and am not too happy with it. ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  7. This has been asked a few times and the prevalent response is...no. Annoys me too. My solution? Will be buying 5.1s. Hopefully they will have a lttle more bass. ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  8. Sweet, that pretty much settles my AE vs Santa Cruz vs GTXP dilemma... thanks guys for the info. mmm... eight channel surround..... So when is Klipsch coming out with a 7.1 system?? ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  9. You will need a 5.1 sound card to take full advantage of the 5.1s ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  10. Had to bring this thread back to the top, I'm still undecided... DVD playback is the most important, then good music quality, finally games, but I don't play those very often. Or should I just keep my old SB value and buy the audio tornado? ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  11. Actually, all other things being equal, a 'digital' system will sound better than analog, for example were the Promedia 5.1 to have an external decoder, they would probably sound better than if they were connected to a soundcard via analog. The reason is that the digital to analog converters in external decoders are usually of better quality, and are isolated from the electrically 'noisy' environment of a PC. The problem, however, is that some digital systems compromise the quality of other components to keep the price down. So for example the DTT3500 will have a cleaner D/A conversion because of its external decoder, but the PM 5.1 will still sound better because the amp and speakers are of better quality. Simply put the overall quality of the system makes a bigger difference than the external decoder. ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  12. Will the 5.1s send bass from all the inputs to the sub? Or will the sub be used exclusively for the sub input? Also are the sub and center inputs separate, or is it one minijack for both? I am planning to buy a game theater XP, but I think it has only separate RCA outputs for the center and sub. In that case I would need an adapter to connect these to the 5.1's center/sub input, correct? ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  13. I have a mouseremote from x10.com. Controls PC functions like volume etc, software, like a dvd or mp3 player, also has a mouse joystick on it. Also works as universal remote for tvs and stuff, and you can get it to control your house lights if you buy more crap with it. Their site is full of garbage but this remote works well. ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  14. Definately buying 5.1... I have 4.00's which are very impressive, the 5.1 can only be better. I thought about selling my 4.00's but I don;t think I'll get a good price... probably will end up keeping them for a spare room or something. ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
  15. I did this to my 4.00's, soldered 16 gauge right to the speakers. Pretty noticeable difference, although it could be because my rear cables are about 40 feet. It was pretty easy to do on the 4.00's since they only have a cap btw the midbass and tweeters, the 4.1's have a croosover IC in each sat so it may be harder... but it did improve quality a bit. ------------------ Caring is the first step toward disappointment.
