    I haven't used ARC but I do know that many displays limit the type of audio that they send from the display itself.

    Set up a 3rd system...

    Lately, I've started loosing access to my main system in the basement as this space is shared with my wife's sewing area and she likes to watch certain shows that I dislike and visa versa. We agree on what to watch most of the time but sometimes it doesnt work. Thats just life. My secondary system is being used by my daughter and her b/f. On to plan C.

    I have a pair of PSB Alpha Mites and a Yamaha RX-V1500 that were doing nothing. Since I already have a display, a bluray player and a cable box in that room, I decided to bring up the mites and the AVR and connect into what is currently there. The Mites are good and articulate, far better than the Visio TV speakers so I'm now on the hunt for a used sub. I'm not buying new and I have to keep the purchases local. Luckily for me, there is a guy that Ive puchased speakers from him before, the Mites and C100 center channel. I've narrowed it down to the following 3 subs due to size constraints in where I plan to put it. a) PSB Alpha (8" front ported) , b) Nuance S-100 ( 10" dual ported down firing) and c) Athena (8" down firing) sub. These are all more mid woofers than subwoofers but I dont want wall shaking bass in the bedroom. The sub is going in the spot currently occupied by the lamp on the right hand side.

    I finished watching Pacific Rim yesterday and noticed that the AVR got rather hot. I guess it needs all of that vent space. I'm going to cut to length a pair of 2x2" that run the depth of the Sony player and place them between the player and the AVR.

    I found a piece of 2x4 , cut two pieces each being 5.5 inches in length, just a little longer than the distance between the feet of the bluray player, painted them black and placed them under the player on edge so there is a 3.5 inch gap between the AVR and the bottom of the blu ray player.

    Nice use of previously unused gear. As for ventilation, never underestimate its importance especially with a receiver.

    So I found out even when driving just two speakers. The fix works well though. Its warm but not hot .
