Help in hooking up a sub woofer.
Hello 2468100,     No offense but the PSB Subseries 150 at $499 seems like a bit of a toy compared to similarly priced alternatives.  It only outputs bass down to 26 Hz and you want a sub that goes down to at least 20 Hz.     I suggest you return ... 
What system can adequately reproduce the sounds of a tanker being hit by torpedo ?
Silly and pointless?  Herding cats?     Boy, that sure brings back memories for me when I worked at a cat ranch during summers between college years.  We rode ligers (a cross between a male lion and a female tiger) with small saddles and used squi...

Hello dawgbyte,     If you're looking for the best deal on an LG 65" OLED 4K hdtv,  I'd be looking at the LG OLED65B8PUA model. It's a 2018 model and you'll need to look closely at the features to make sure it has everything you want/need but you ...

dawgbyte:"Tim good suggestion! I plan to visit Best Buy to do some comparison shopping and then buy online for less."Hello dawgbyte,     I went to Best Buy, too,  to check out my Panasonic plasma before buying online.  I think it was about $4,500 ... 
What is the least compressed signal?
     I agree, if readers here can't even agree that CDs generally have compressed dynamics mainly due to the Loudness Wars, and conscious decisions made by the recording engineers to compromise good dynamics for higher volume, then we either all g...

teo_audio,     I didn't know that about 4K scans of 2K movies.  It reminds me of redbook cd transfers of 16bit/44.1KHz content to 24bit/96KHz FLAC and WAV files, without a master provenance history, that some companies like HDTracks scam consumers... 
What is the least compressed signal?
    Did you ever contemplate the notion that kosst somehow just might benefit by having his life ruled by numbers?For example, I know kosst's wife numbers all his underpants with the number "1" and all his pants with the number "2" due to some emb... 
Television technology - where are we?
     I bought a Panasonic VT60 series 65" plasma 1080P hdtv in 2014 knowing Panasonic was exiting the plasma hdtv market due to manufacturing costs of producing plasma 4K hdtvs likely causing them to be priced out of the market.     I'm so glad I ... 
SWARM / Multi subwoofer questions
Hello haywood310,     I think going from one Hsu ULS-15 sub to two is a very significant improvement that begins to smooth out the perceived bass response peaks and dips in the room, increases maximum bass impact, reduces the bass production requi...

Television technology - where are we?
dawgbyte,+1 for LG OLED.     The Samsung QLED 4K  hdtvs are very good but, when seen side by side with an LG OLED, it'll be obvious to you that the OLED is clearly superior.  The Samsungs are Transmissive, meaning they use a backlight shining thro... 
My experience adding subwoofers to 2 channel
Hello holter,     I'm not very familiar with the Dream Maker speakers, although I've read good reviews on them.  I don't think you'd need any more than 4 AK subs to get excellent bass response in your room.  I think James would be the best person ...

Hello statmeister,     No, I'm not AKA hikmer.  I was just having a little fun and messing with you.     But I was struck by how quickly exactly what you were looking for suddenly appeared for sale and at under your expected price, almost like you... 
My experience adding subwoofers to 2 channel
Hello holter,     I'm certainly no bass expert, either.  James Romeyn mentioned to me how well his A K Debra system and its distributed bass array concept works and I just read all I could find out about the concept, mostly research done by Earl G...
