Pioneer VSX-522-K 5.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Entry-Level Receiver 12/20/2013

This review is from: Pioneer VSX-522-K 5.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver

Pros: Inexpensive, 4 HDMI inputs, good power for price, automatic sound adjustment for room acoustics.

Cons: Remote isn't universal, controls only Pioneer products. No radio presets on face (remote only).

Other Thoughts: The person who stated in their review that this doesn't work with surround sound on a Roku is incorrect. I have a Roku 3 and it works perfectly. Perhaps they did not have the "surround sound" option set on the Roku, but it works perfectly for me. I also own a Pioneer Elite SC-07 ($2200) and this receiver has the same MCACC (Multi Channel Acoustic Calibration) system, which tailors audio performance to your environment.

This is being used for a bedroom system which consists of small Boston Acoustic bookshelf speakers, a Polk Audio for center, and a home-made 12" JL Audio subwoofer (I'm a mobile electronics installer). After adjusting the receiver and watching a Breaking Bad episode where there was a sudden, unexpected explosion, I nearly fell off my bed :)

I'm giving this a five mainly to help balance out the low scores given of people who don't know how to configure their components.

Thermaltake Element Q VL52021N2U Black SGCC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 200W SFX Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: small, inexpensive.

Cons: Not "fanless"

Other Thoughts: I was all excited when I ran across this "fanless" case because I intend to make a totally-fanless HTPC, then the video points out that this "fanless" case has a fan in the power supply. Silly and misleading.

5 out of 5 eggs Nice Tablet Speakers 03/02/2013

This review is from: Logitech 984-000193 Tablet speaker for ipad

Pros: Compact, rechargeable, good sound, bag.

Cons: Difficult to stay put on some tablets.

Other Thoughts: I got this for only $15.99, a great price. I should tell you it is worth the regular price. Before, I could barely hear my tablet through its built-in speaker. I had to cup my hand behind it to create a bit of a horn to amplify it, that's how poor it was. With this Logitech system, I get plenty of volume and the quality is pretty good for such small speakers. The nice thing is the unit is rechargeable via a USB port so you don't need to buy batteries. The only thing I could fault it for is that it tends to slide a bit when clipped onto my tablet, but that could just be because my tablet is rounded on the back side around the edges.
