    What's your set up?

    I'm looking at these right now, but I like Sony a lot:

    Does the center "bar" really elaborate the sound? I've seen some but I'm not a believer yet. And does it just pull from the TV?

    can't go wrong with Bose

    • I feel that the sound, while pleasant, is quite "colored" (in the sense that they equalize it, not a racist way)monospaced1/3
      I beg to differ with this post. You can sometimes go VERY wrong with Bose.ETM2/3

    @center bar - actually it sounds really good. but it depends on your room. it uses the walls in your room to bounce sound off of and create the surround feeling. i had a 5.1 set up but my apartment is small and i was tired of looking at all those speakers all over the place.

    the bar comes with a microphone for initial set up. it plays some audible tones and the mic tells the system how it should set up different frequencies. it's pretty dope. GREAT for video games.

    • oh yea, i forgot, i'm still using the old sony subwoofer attached to my yamaha sound bar. works perfect.anxiousarms

    I'm shopping for a blu-ray disc player, because I want to see a truly uncompressed HD image on my television, but I just don't know what to get. I'm looking for something with the best sound and picture quality and fastest operational (boot, time to load disc, etc.) times. A good interface is always nice, but I don't need any 3D capabilities. Any suggestions?

    • ps3scarabin1/3
      For truly uncompressed, you could also get an OTA antenna for TV signals.ETM2/3
      Never mind - looked it up, OTA is also compressed. Just less so than typical cable etc.ETM3/3

    does "truly uncompressed" even exist on blu ray? a feature-length movie would be over a terabyte in size uncompressed.

    @acescence That's a damn good question. Besides blu-ray, the only other HD content I can view is through FiOS. Now, they provide a great signal, and Dolby Digital sound, but I can still see banding and jpeg compression when I pause and get up close (it's subtle, but it's there), but I can't help but feel that a blu-ray would be significantly better. Am I right in my assumptions?

    This is the rig I currently have. Using with an xb360 w/ hdmi A/V.

    No blu-ray but i'm not necessarily that concerned with running to get a blu-ray player to watch mostly shitty movies in 'HD'.

    Finally broke down and bought a Blu-ray player the other day and set it up last night. I was right, this seems to be the only format that takes full advantage of HD gear (audio and video). For the first time I saw my receiver jump into DD TrueHD, DTS sound decoding modes, and the picture is way better than "HD" programming I receive through my television provider. Wow, I had been missing out this whole time, not taking advantage of the gear I already had. Good times.

    nothin' outrageous, but it really works for me

    47" vizio
    7.1 sony receiver
    a bunch of bose satellites and sub

    it's all integrated with my music production equipment/macbook, ps3 and hackintosh media server so i can watch internet porn on the big screen, switch to ps3 to game and stream netflix or watch torrents that automatically populate a shared folder on the media server, then switch to laptop to play music when i wanna rock out or put on 3d glasses and trip out on the visualizer

    • also has wacom and wireless mouse and keyboard so i can design or play diablo on the big screenscarabin
