Now Playing to get downsized

Posted by jwilson56 , 17 February 2018 · 6479 views

Well after using this setup for almost a decade I am looking to downsize the whole house audio part. Being empty nesters we just don't seem to use all six zones much so I will be looking to sell off some of the Technics  SA-EX140 stereo receivers. I might also be selling off the Shinybow SB-5548 Audio Video Switcher unit as well. Still working out th...

Star Citizen - Space Combat Sim

Posted by jwilson56 , 01 February 2016 · 12891 views

Now Playing is still running 24/7 with no problems. I spend my time traveling and when the weather is bad I spend my time flying in my simpit and other games. I am looking forward to Star Citizen. It looks amazing right now. When I set out to do a simpit after I retired and saw a demo of TrackIR the first thing I came across was Helios. After some re...

Rumors....

Posted by jwilson56 , 18 December 2013 · 6829 views

Well the rumors of my death have been greatly exhagerated. I am still using Now Playing in my home. Everything is working quite well and have not seen any reason to change things.

Pioneer SC-1222K is a winner

Posted by jwilson56 , 09 March 2013 · 7370 views

Well the Pioneer SC-1222K came early so I decided to swap it out. My initial thoughts Pros: 1)  The receiver runs cool to the touch even after a few hours of cranked up music and movies 2)  The Class D3  amplifiers are a clear winner for sound quality. My Polk Monitor 70's have never sounded so good. I was always less than impress...

Posted by jwilson56 , 08 March 2013 · 6492 views

Well my Onkyo receiver is having sound issues. It seems that this model is having these issues and usually occurs after the 2 year warrenty is up. The repair bills are said to be in the hundreds. So it looks like I am out of luck.  I decided to purchase a Pioneer SC-1222K after reading how much trouble the new Onkyo and Denon's are. NewEgg is having...
