    Best home theatre speakers?

    I’ve been getting ready to really step it up when it comes to the sound system for my home theatre, and I’ve started the research on the speakers that I may want to invest in. What speakers do each of you use, and how did you decide on them? Thanks for your help in advance!

    Audio Sounds Tinny

    Hey there. Can anyone point me in the right direction with my problem. When I'm watching live streaming the audio sounds like it's coming out of a tin can. I have a Mygica 1800E and just play sound through the tv speakers. Are there any audio adjustments I can configure that would remedy this?
