AV Rant #441: Hat-Bucket Theorem
This week we thank Ray and Lee for their support with a special thanks to Dipan for his donation. Thanks guys! In the news: Comic Con 2015 (LINK) and an interesting bookshelf shootout (LINK). Tom (a listener) is looking to replace his Snell speakers and needs some advice (LINK, LINK, LINK, and LINK), Jordan is thinking of a $60 sub and wants our opinion (LINK), and Ashley has some questions on satellite speakers and his Sony PS 3D monitor (LINK). Everett has questions about his TV settings and a sub setting on his Denon AVR-X4000, Diego is on the prowl for a new receiver (this LINK will surprise roughly no one) and needs some speaker placement advice, and Bobby wants to know if there are any 4K UHD TVs that will make regular DVDs look good. Roch would simply like to know our favorite ever 2-channel setup that we’ve heard so far in our lives, Ted (the creator of our Outro music!) would like to know our opinions on coaxial/concentric-driver speakers, and Jason wanted to confirm that Monoprice HDMI switches can work perfectly well with Harmony Remotes (LINK) but wonders why his “Standard Speed” HDMI cables didn’t work properly. Dipan has a pair of Revel Ultima2 Salon2 speakers and wants to know if he can use them for 2-channel in his custom theater, John found a pair of Martin Logan SL3 speakers at a good price (LINK) and wants to know if he should buy, and Lee is looking for a screen for his new Epson 3500 projector. Michael just got a Power Sound Audio XV15 subwoofer and wants to know if he should continue to use his Polk Audio PSW-505 subwoofer, Scott is interested in the Intel NUC that Tom just built as he needs a new HTPC (LINK), and Bruce disagrees with us about some of the things we’ve said about high resolution audio.
