  1. I spent the afternoon with the Disney WOW calibration disc.I know it sounds goofy to hear that Disney has a calibration disc, check out the reviews on AVS, it was well worth the effort and at $40 well worth the price. It also has filter and sharpness tools. It also has an audio component as well with multiple frequency sweeps that helped me locate some rattles in my hvacPosted Image

  2. I wasnt aware there was a super slim version either...but im not up on the latest and greatest either.

    It may be the latest but it sure isn't the greatest. I should have just gotten the regular slim model to replace the broken one. I still think the best one was the 80 gb fat, i could play ps2 games on it.
  3. I'm confused, I thought the newest ps3 was just one size, no?

    Not too worried about the noise unless it's crazy loud as we will be far away from the unit and it's going to be inside an entertainment center.

    Sorry I didn't mean to confuse you, about a month ago the released the super slim model its smaller then the slim mode. I took some quick pictures for comparison, sorry about the quality I'm using my tablet.Posted ImagePosted Image

  4. I would use caution when getting the new super slim ps3. I bought one two weeks ago to replace my slim that fell. The top loading ps3 has two problems 1) it makes more noise the the slim especially when loading up the movie and game, just a thin plastic cover on top that slides. 2) it feels very, very poorly put together, I'm sure if young hands got a hold of it it could break. I would look at getting a regular slim unit instead, I know it won't come with Assassins creed 3 (a great game too!) but they still have bundles with uncharted 3 and others.

  5. All very helpful - thanks!

    Any recs for a starter system? Perhaps something all in one? I am debating suggesting a home theater in a box or a speaker system with seperate receiver.

    Greetings JBD, I used to own the Quintet II system paired with the Klipsch sub 12 and I think this is a great satellite and sub combo. I was very happy with them and when the upgrade bug bit I just added a speaker or two at a time. There was also a post in the alert section of the forum for the HD 1000 system for $399 at onecall.com. I have never personally heard the HD 1000 but that seems to be a great price for a quality htib, just add a receiver and your off to the races.

  6. I was considering the use of subwoofer risers. It is suppose to decrease energy in vertical room modes and decouple the sub from the floor. I was interested in opinions from forum members that have used homemade risers or Arulex SubDude.

    Hay Derrick I have the Auralex Great Gramma for my subs and they really do make a difference in my basement, I had a lot of rattles from my hvac at certian frequencies. The platforms cut down on 99% on the rattles and the only negative thing is that I had to turn up the gain a couple of clicks to compensate from the platform.

  7. I had a chance to preview it during the Audioholics GTG 2012 event in October. I spoke with the salesman about it and it's differences between it and the UMC-1 and it didn't seem like it was much of an upgrade. Not really sure what changes they made to it. You can see some additional pics I took of it here.

    I think the one "upgrade" they made was 3D 1.4hdmi. Other then that it seems very similar to the UMC-1. It still seems like a great deal to me at $599 for a preamp.

  8. ^^^I watched that on VUDU and definitely want to pick up the bluray. I'm curious if there is going to be a follow up to that one.

    They definetley answered a lot of questions but brought up new ones. I would love to see them make a sequel but I think that was Ridley Scotts idea was to leave questions unanswered.
  9. What I wonder is we all buy a couple things then they have their "blue" Friday sale and even more saving come about. That will irritate me.

    Hay Scrappy I know Emotiva had a policy that if some goes on sale within a month of a purchase they will refund the difference, I dont known if the policy is still in effect. As for the cable they sure do look nice.

  10. This is what we will be watching this weekend.....comes out today. Taking my son after school today to buy it.


    Youthman I think your son will love this Spiderman, I took my son to see it in the theaters and I definitely think its the best installment of the Spiderman movies.

  11. They-Live-Blu-ray.jpg

    FINALLY released on BD in limited numbers... and they did a great job on the bluray conversion.

    The movie looks restored... saturation, contrast and clarity are

    outstanding for a B movie. Not reference level, but pretty darn close.

    I remember watching that movie with my older brother, he had to sneak me into the theater lol.

    Anyways I remember it being good.

  12. Kurt Russell has already signed on to be the aging Luke Skywalker....

    That may be interesting role for him, there could definitely be worse actor's to play that role (Tom Cruise)

    Pretty sure he was joking lol. Russell did tryout for hansolo.

    Yes... It was a very weak attempt to bring in some humor...

    Ok my bad, I still think Tom Cruise will play a bad Luke Skywalker.

  13. Thank you Youthman, its weird it only happen when the movie loads in the PS3 not durning the whole play back.

    Are you sure it's your amp and not your PS3? On rare occassions, my PS3 makes a strange buzzing (maybe rattling) as the DVD Spins up. It's almost as if the disk is off balance for a few seconds. It's pretty loud and I've only heard it do it just a few times.

    How long should I let it sit so the electronic charge dissipate?

    Good question. I'm not very knowlegable when it comes to the inside of electronics. If you take the lid off, play the source and listen for the rattle to see if you can locate the source of the noise. Then, I would power the unit down, unplug and let it sit for 30 minutes (might be less time but that's just me).

    Hello again Youthman,

    It is definitely the amp, I have everything turned off and unplugged and I tapped the top of the amp and there is a ringing sound whenever I tap the top or side of the chassis.

    Very puzzling since the amp still works good?
