    Dear folks! I would like to ask for your experience and help. I'm looking to improve on my home theater system. I've been using a Denon X2300 with the speakers from my old and trusty Creative Gigaworks S750 with great satisfaction, but now that I moved to a bigger house, I found that I'd need...

    Marantz sr5015 rear speaker dialogue delivered with static

    Recently bought the 5015 and love it except: any dialogue that emanates from the rear speakers is associated with static under all surround sound modes.

    Question Does room treatments improve dialogue?

    I have a pretty casual home cinema, a 3.0 system, mostly intended to improve dialogue, since modern movies have such high dynamic range which makes the important plot conversations hard to hear. I am willing to treat my room with various acoustic plates and such. But is this worth it in terms...

    Question Is there no point in trying to find a TV with clear dialogue and speakers?

    So are modern TVs completely worthless when it comes to clear dialogue and sound? I have a Pioneer Kuro and have realized that home speaker setup is just way too demanding. All the speakers need to be ear height, you need to treat your room, can't have the wrong type of uneven roof/walls, etc...

    Question Center channel curve?

    For my Denon X1400H, I'm using the MultEQ Editor app to build as close to a B&K Curve (around +1 from 60-100hz, curving down to about -5.5) as I can get for my L/R speakers (Philharmonic AAMs). For my center channel, is it generally best practice to use the same curve? I ask because I tried...
