    I can only imagine having something like this happen is like losing a small part of oneself. This is the first car he ever owned, had it for 14 years and poured a ton of time into it to make it perfect. Please keep an eye out!

    Headphone amp with cross-feed and user configurable DSP(EQ)?

    Does such a beast exist? For reasonable prices? I know reasonable is subjective but I don't see why something like this should cost $1k when you can get a headphone amp with way more than enough power for a few hundred. But maybe I'm being naïve. More than ample power is good, but I don't...

    Critique my 5.x.4 layout plan, suggestions?

Though overall layout and I imagine even bed speaker layer placement is probably pretty fixed given the base room situation; openings, windows, etc. I'm planning to do all in-walls for bed layer and in-ceilings for top layer.

They do some streaming and I'm guessing this will increase since they were just able to get broadband and no...

    Best powered studio monitors in the ~$300 range with unbalanced ins? For garage duty.

    I'm looking for some decent speakers for the garage. My feeling is I would be happy with something in the $200-$400 range. Powered seems ideal to keep it simple and out of the way. I've got a ton of stuff in my garage well organized, but shelf and wall space is at a premium. I get a new tool...

    Movies with great music in them?

    What are some of your favorite movies that has music as an integral part of the movie? So integral that is almost, or is a MacGuffin. I guess it doesn't have to get to MacGuffin level for it to be a great addition to the movie and well integrated. A movie that immediately comes to mind for me...

    Your wisdom on the next direction of my system!

    I'm debating a restart VS tweak and would love to hear anyone thoughts. I would appreciate any guidance or wisdom. As an aside, I am on an overseas assignment for about another 6 months, about an hour north of Tokyo. So, I feel I have a pretty unique opportunity to listen to many speakers...
