  • There is only one BEST speaker wire company and that is Audioquest period.
  • I'm not sure what the hell is going on with Pioneer.I'd like to see them make a huge comeback in the TV market as well as the entire line of Elite.

  • Im thinking about picking up a Breville Coffee maker. We currently use a Kurig and it makes fine coffee but I find it to be weak at times especially when I make a trade mug. I did some research and the Breville is rated very high including some goo…

  • Good job on the review. I also have Carbon USB cables. I have Cabon level cables all over my system.
  • I'm paying around $140 per week which is very high IMO.
  • I found it to be the best new Star Wars Movie.

  • I have a Profile saved for the 900F for picture settings if you want to try them out. On a side note congrats on the 900f. The price they are selling for right now I would buy one or 2 in a heart beat. The Blacks on the 900F do not match the perfo…

  • I gotta agree with DarqueKnight in the fact when the Pioneer Kuro's where out and I saw them, I got instantly the feeling I need to have one of these and then Got one at the end of their life. The OLED's and the LED's in 4k as much as I think they …
  • The 900F is a great TV. I can't think of a better Tv for the money. I'm even more impressed with the motion abilities of this set. I might put one in my bedroom.
  • I have friends that live out there and they also said Tahoe is the move. California isn't far either and they have some killer Pizza places out there to try out .
  • LG Panel and LG TV is not the same exact company. But both Sony and LG buy their panels from them. Sony only uses the top of the line panels while LG will use the lower end models. There is a slight difference there. Processing is completely differ…

  • What did you end up with?

  • Don't know how much your willing to spend but I have a bunch of Speaker cables terminated in Banana's. PM me
