I have it hooked directly into (through the attached RCA cables) my Sony Blu-ray Home Theater System BDV-N5200W. The sound is good but I just feel like it should/could be better. Any ideas on how I could improve the sound? P.S. I know this isn't the best record player but hey I was born in the mid 80's to me Sony will always be king.

  • Do all blu-ray players have no rewind buttons on them?

    My boyfriend wants me to find one that can be used with or without a remote. It looks like no players have them... I've looked all over online and no answers.

  • Ive acquired some old speakers from a salvage yard, how do I wire them up?

    The whole speaker consists of what looks like a 10 inch sub, a smaller one and a tweeter. Coming out of the box are two speaker cables... question is, how do I wire these up? I’d imagine they need amplification, but I may be wrong

  • 4k HDR Streaming vs 4k Blu-ray?

    I know this is a silly question, 4k blu-ray is clearly the winner but hear me out first.

    I know this is a silly question, 4k blu-ray is clearly the winner but hear me out first. Note: this is exclusively about 4k HDR video, not 1080p streaming where the winner is much more obviously blu-ray. Obviously 4k blu-ray has better video quality but which 4k having as many pixels as it does, would the difference even be noticeable without pausing and comparing or zooming all the way in? As for sound quality, obviously compressing files for streaming makes sound awful in comparing but if you're streaming through a 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound system can you still tell the difference as opposed to tv speakers? I'm asking because I'm considering buying an apple tv and going digital. Several reasons are leading me to consider doing this, one being convince, another being price and quantity. There's more 4k hdr movies on iTunes than there are actual 4k blurays. Another reason is if the difference isn't as major as some people say considering the resolution is so high a slight difference can't be seen I'd be okay with the lesser quality. Sound is where my concern lies most because of the compression but I do have surround sound if that could make it better. Another reason is having all my movies on iTunes and vudu make it easier when traveling since 4k blurays aren't exactly common and in every household. Just let me know your thoughts on this

  • Will a wireless bluetooth microphone work with a soundbar?

    Best answer: First, there are other considerations, like setting treble, bass and volume. there is setting the sensitivity of the microphone pick up, (how well it "hears" the singer, and at what range) other tools, like adding reverb, suppressing feedback and on and on.

    Best answer: First, there are other considerations, like setting treble, bass and volume. there is setting the sensitivity of the microphone pick up, (how well it "hears" the singer, and at what range) other tools, like adding reverb, suppressing feedback and on and on. Just get a Karaoke machine ( they come with Microphones and even some songs) or use your PC and the karaoke app it likely has as part of its soundcard system, or get one from an app store.

    We have warned purchasers before here that such devices as soundbars and HTiB's are limited use appliances, and do not substitute for an AV receiver or other full sound system. They go buy them anyway then immediately after go Hey I cant hook up this or that , cant put the speakers where I want them, cant use it for "X", wont work to give good surround sound, has no radio, sounds beamy and funny, I cant adjust left and right well, (or at all), Wont work with those speakers I got for Christmas, on and on. If you want actual surround sound, and versatility of input, get one. Otherwise, just enjoy your appliance for the purpose it was built.

  • Why do people say soundbars jump between being too quiet and too loud a lot of the time?

    Best answer: I used to deliver and install TV equipment for a living. The only people I ever heard saying that kind of thing were those who had failed to read the user instructions.

    Best answer: I used to deliver and install TV equipment for a living.

    The only people I ever heard saying that kind of thing were those who had failed to read the user instructions.

    Soundbars and soundbases typically have a far higher dynamic range than standard TV loudspeakers but most have a “late evening”
    or “quiet mode” setting which reduces the dynamic range to a less extreme sound. Even without that mode, most can be manually adjusted to achieve a similar effect.
