Best DVD player in $500-$1000 Range
What I would do if I am looking for a DVD Player in the $500.00 to $1,000.00 price range is just like someone else has said (I believe it was "Sdcampbell") is look at such websites such as "Audiogon", "C-Net", "Yahoo" and "E-Bay". Also, look at ot... 
HT Gear solved, thanks all who helped!
You're welcome, Jeff--But I have one question still. I have noticed that you have purchased a "passive" subwoofer to go with your Gallo Speaker System, NAD T760 Receiver and Toshiba DVD Player. What I would like to know is, how are you going to po... 
VCR (remember these?) w/ a great picture
Anubis--Yes I do. I remember them fondly. My younger brother had a high-end AKAI VHS Hi-Fi VCR (the one with the rosewood side panels and the LCD equipped remote) back in the late 1980's and that was my intimate introduction to high-end VCRs as fa... 
Audiophile considering HT
Jeff--Like I said, an NAD D-D A/V Receiver should be about $700.00 at the max. If you shop around, you might even find one at a closeout sale for less. Also, try "e-bay". There might be some used NAD's at that site you can get at incredible prices... 
Audiophile considering HT
Hello Jeff--How are you doing?? Sounds like you're in the same exact boat as I am in (for home theater, while I don't want something that is on the same level as my audio system, I'm not just going to settle for just anything either. My home theat... 
sony dvp7700?
Kthomas: Thanks for the input. As I been receiving bi-annual and occasional sales flyers from a mail order outfit named "Crutchfield" for sometime now, I have been seeing the Sony DVP-S7700 DVD Player being listed for $799.00 (which is about $300.... 
Pioneer DV-37 vs. Sony DVP-9000ES
Bympnyc and Toan: I also have a subscription to a magazine called "The Perfect Vision". Inside of their latest issue, not even in stores yet, they (Sony) have a DVP-S9000ES on display on their advertisement. And I believe that they're available he... 
Best CD Player for $1000
Well, how about a Meridian 506.20 or an earlier 506.24?? I am searching the "net" for one right now. But I am going to wait for my finances to recover so that they can permit the purchase of one (that might not happen until January or February). A... 
The best sounding FM Tuner is.....
Is without a doubt, Magnum Dynalab..... hands down. While the MD-108 is their top-of-the-line tuner (at $5,000.00...... OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!), you can get an MD-102 for about half of that and it offers 90% to 95% of the perfomance of the MD-108 witho... 
Best integrated amp for Sonus Concerto
Neronian: If I may make some kind of case here.... What about the Classe CAP-151 Integrated Amplifier?? The Big Classe Integrated sounds warm, smooth and rich with the Sonus Concertos. The Classe is a 150 W/P/C High Current Integrated just in case... 
Best intergrated amp. for US$800
Dekay: I have listened to a Musical Fidelity X-A2, but not the X-A1, so I cannot comment on the X-A1. But I do hear (read seems like a better word here) that the X-A1 exhibits a less warm and more upfront sound than does the X-A2, but I cannot say... 
The BEST system you've ever built !!!!
Krellpower1: What is the best system I have put together?? Well, that would be my current system. I have been building this system for about the last three years now (I am building a now building a system for the long haul, and after I finish obta... 
Receiver-- good stereo sound quality
Huijames: If you are putting together a system that is going to serve double duty as a music system and then as a home theater system, then I only have one suggestion as far as a home theater receiver goes. NAD!!!! Is there anything else out there... 
Best intergrated amp. for US$800
Huijames: If you want to buy the best integrated amplifier for around $800.00?? Then I have only have three suggestions: (01). The Musical Fidelity X-A2 -- $695.00 @ Audio Advisors, but like "Megasam" has said, if you want remote control though, y... 
Best of value-based systems
Sdcampbell: If I may comment here..... I agree with you on all counts. Looking for and buying used gear seems to have put the fun and the life back into what has been for a decade to be a dying hobby. In my opinion, all of the BEST gear was introd...
