This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V667BL 7.2-Channel Receiver
Pros: I jumped at this while they had it on a combo deal with a Klipsch Synergy Sub-12. I got an amazing deal and could probably not be more satisfied for a mid range enthusiast.
This reciever has more than enough features for your average guy. Who really needs more than 3 or 4 hdmi inputs these days? The auto setup was spot on when I set up my new speakers. It accurately measured distance from the mic down to the inch. The on screen gui is great and the appearance is brilliant.
Cons: The owner's manual is very vague describing remote programming. I could not for the life of me set up my remote to control my tv.
Other Thoughts: This drives 4 Polk Audio Monitor 30ii's, one CS2, and one Klipsch Synergy sub-12 and Transformers 2 sounds ridiculously incredible. I would like to have a more detailed owner's manual regarding the features and functions.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Klipsch Synergy Sub12 12" 300W High Gloss Black Subwoofer Single
Pros: Full, rich sound. This is an upgrade from a 60 watt sub from a 15yo JVC HTIB and we were blown away by how much more affect this sub adds to movies and games.
Cons: HUGE, make sure you have room for this thing.
Other Thoughts: I have been looking into replacing my old A/V system and speakers for some time now and finally decided to go above entry level and step up to something mid range. I took advantage of Newegg's combo deal that matched this with the Yamaha RX-V667. I have no complaints as this was a heck of a deal and I feel that I probably cannot tell any difference between this or anything more expensive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Winegard HD-1080 2-Bay Bowtie UHF & High Band VHF TV Antenna
Pros: High gain, good sturdy quality, somewhat attractive looking.
Cons: No cons here, this antenna picks up stations I am theoretically out of range to receive.
Other Thoughts: Before you purchase an antenna, visit antennaweb.org and do a little homework, enter your address to find out what stations are actually broadcasting in your area. Also, this site gives you frequencies which is super helpful in deciding which antenna you actually need.
Also...please realize that regardless of any antenna you purchase that is completely passive such as this one (no lna or power amp), you do not have to have an antenna that has HD or Digital stamped on it to be able to receive that HD station because the antenna will recieve any signal within the specified ranges (UHF,VHF)... decoding the Digital or Analog modulation is up to your tv...
