    Component Recommendations for GoldenEar Triton 2+

    I listened to GoldenEar Triton 3+ speakers at my local dealer this weekend and they blew me away. I'm having a house built and will have a 23 ft x 24 ft room with 13 ft ceilings that I'm making into a home gym. I'm going to build a new music audio system for this room. Loud, quality music is...

    Component placement

    Sorry if this posting is in the wrong place. I am looking at getting the unit in the attached picture. I have a Rotel preamp 1572 and Rotel Power Amp 1582 Mk II. I am worried about the aesthetic look of things. The 1572 will sit in the 15 cm space and the 1582( too tall for 15cm space) on...

    Recommendations for 6.5" component speaker upgrade in Alfa Brera

    I’m looking to replace the front door speakers on my Alfa Romeo Brera (a non-Bose model) as one of them has blown. The head unit is a Pioneer AVIC F960BT. From what I've read so far, I think I’ll need 6.5” components. And fairly shallow ones because of the very limited space in the Brera doors...

    Which projector for Component and S-Video support as well as HDMI?

    The first replacement lamp for my Infocus IN82 shattered after 4 weeks, the next one didn't even light up, both were original lamps too. It looks like I will have to get another projector. Unfortunately, any of the models that I've seen featured in reviews on this and other sites do not support...

    Hello! I am looking for a crt tv for retro gaming. I have read an endless amount of vintage reviews and looked through countless hastily scanned pdf catalogues in multiple languages, and I feel like I know exactly what I want now.

    SCART/RGB to component converter

    There are a couple of old threads on this topic, but nothing recent (technology moves on!), so I'm keen to hear what the current thinking is. I have an elderly Pioneer DVD player and a stack of as yet unwatched DVDs. The player offers a choice of composite/RCA, which I'm currently using, and...

    Is Mini-YPbPr or Mini-Component as good as normal component?

    I was looking to get a small TV with component connection but although the spec sheet says it has component, it actually only has Mini-YPbPr - is this just as good? What kind of adapter is necessary? It also has a mini-composite connection. I was looking for a TV with component to play retro...

    Input lag on component input

    Hi! On my Samsung TV (NU7192) the input lag on HDMI is very good when enabling Game Mode: <16ms. However, on Component Input the input lag can be as much as 67ms (Game Mode enabled). I tested this on my Wii U using the input lag tester on this site...

    Panasonic DMR-EX75 dvd recorder replacement? (Scart + component video out + tuner)

    After surviving from 2006 for 2019, my ex75 stopped playing Dvds and I replaced it with another one (which seemed close to new). Unfortunately the tuner on that seems to have stopped working and I am not inclined to fiddle with soldering irons to try to fix it. What would be a more recent...

    Component 4:2 switch replace, repair or convert?

    My Zektor 4:2 switch turns off intermittently. It's not regular or predictable. It could switch itself off after a few seconds or it could stay on for two hours. While I don't use them often I have an Xbox, PS2, Gamecube and Wii that output progressively through component. There is no issue with...

    Hey all, so I’ve always had a PS2 hooked up to my setup because I still have a load of old games I like to play. With my older VSX-921 receiver it had Component input on the back, so I used to use the official Sony Component cable and everything worked flawlessly. I even had it hooked up so I‘d...
