How connect TV output to JC2bp
The Geffen Dolby decoder will work without changing the default setting of the TV's digital audio output, however when the TV's digital audio output is set to "PCM" any 2 channel DAC with optical input will work. 
How connect TV output to JC2bp
You need a basic 2 channel DAC with optical input and an optical cable. Here’s a decent budget DAC for $23 with a cable or $18 without a cable. I have one of these and it did come with a power supply but there seems to be some conflicting informat... 
Speaker purchase question
"Am I wrong to feel deceived?"Morally, most likely, no. Legally, based on information here and without seeing the original ad, yes. The default position of any used item being sold is "As Is" regardless of that being said in the ad or not.https://...

How to wire my subwoofer and amp
Knowing the age of this passive sub and the configuration of connections on the back, I was thinking the 12" driver might have a dual voice coil. This video confirms that.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRdfX4RE-ZAA mono connection will only power... 
How does my MF A308 compare to modern integrated amps in the $3000-$6000 range?

If you could use an excellent table FM radio for office, kitchen,,..etc.
A vintage tube Zenith H845 is what I have used for many years. Wooden cabinet with a 7.5 inch woofer and a 3 inch tweeter result in a really good sound. Guess the tubes give it the very nice musical presentation. The C845 is the same radio with mi...

garrard 301 - how to polish chassis paint.
I’ve used this plastic polish with a microfiber cloth on numerous surfaces with excellent results. I’m sure it’s nowhere as aggressive as an automotive polish. Obviously, it needs to be very gentle for plastic.https://www.amazon.com/Novus-7100-Pla...
