re: Help me pick a new receiver - MyNameIsInigoMontoya on 8/23/16 at 8:36 am
On my most current one, the front left channel has died. It only produces a tiny crackling sound...almost like a muted version of a torn speaker cone. I verified it's not my speakers or speaker wire.

Help me pick a new receiver - MyNameIsInigoMontoya on 8/22/16 at 9:24 am
My Denon X2000 has died and I'm looking to replace it. What is a comparable Onkyo or Yamaha that you guys would recommend? It will be used primarily as a 5.1 for movies/TV, but I do have a second zone outside. The input can be the same for both zones. Definitely want something that accepts at least ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Wood plank-looking porcelain tile - MyNameIsInigoMontoya on 5/4/16 at 11:30 am
If you do it, make sure to get a dark grout and you will want to go as thin as possible (probably smaller than what the manufacturer recommends) to make it look like wood, rather than tile. After talking with a friend who is in the flooring business, we actually went with a luxury vinyl tile (go...

re: Is the Cyber Security Market Saturated? - MyNameIsInigoMontoya on 4/14/16 at 7:30 am
In my opinion, security has an exceptionally high growth potential, as well. Think of all of the newly "connected" devices we have coming online with the Internet of Things. As that number grows, so will the need for new cyber security measures....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Stay away from short sales? - MyNameIsInigoMontoya on 3/10/16 at 2:40 pm
I'm sure others know much more than I do about this, but I do know that short sales (and foreclosures) can take a LONG time to process. So, depending on your situation, that can be a pain to deal with. ...

re: Need help with parade sound/speaker setup - MyNameIsInigoMontoya on 3/10/16 at 9:30 am
I guess he could, assuming he has an AUX to 1/4 inch converter. IMO, a mixer would make it easier to control volume (with a large slider and mute ability) and would give at least a 3 band EQ. Also, it would give him the ability to add a microphone if he so desired....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Easy way to copyright and protect those songs you've written. - MyNameIsInigoMontoya on 3/10/16 at 9:17 am
