  3. A/V Receivers and Amplifiers
    My wife and I are getting on in years and it's getting increasingly difficult to understand what characters are saying when background noise is present. We would love to know which A/V Receivers are particularly good at boosting speech frequencies. Thanks, John-in-Toronto

    I'm sitting here with an old Kenwood VR-507. I have it hooked up to a sub-woofer & a number of front centre surround speakers. It has worked OK for some time (years!) - with the exception of just plain cutting out in heavy loud sound sections of movies. Its time to move on. Looking at a...

  9. A/V Receivers and Amplifiers
    I recently picked up a Yamaha HTR-6250 and have been rather happy with it, since it's managed to detect my TV and PVR with no problem, and delivers pretty good sound and a picture as good as if the devices were directly hooked to the TV itself. However, I have a question regarding the DTS-HD...

    Help with 6100s Hi, and thanks for having me as a member. Over a year ago, I purchased 4 BEV 6100 receivers at an auction. They came with no cards in the slot. They sat in my basement for the last year until this week when I decided to subscribe to Bell, finally. Unfortunately, the sales...

    I am going to set up a home theatre in the family room: 2 front and 2 rear in-ceiling speakers + center speaker above the TV. I am also thinking of using the same AVR to drive 2 additional in-ceiling speakers in the patio adjacent to the family room. Is this a valid setup in most mid-range...

    I woke up to my stereo blasting at 4 Am wondering WTF! I could see no reason for it and duduced it was a rogue IR wave that triggered the remote control or something. Several weeks went by with no problem, then it happened again. Again I figured some kind of freak accident. The other day, it...
