I too echo Response34. On the other hand, if you want to really feel like a duck out of water you've got to check out 1-2-3-4 GO Records (mostly LPs) on 40th Street in Oakland CA, They sell mostly Heavy Metal, Punk, and other genre I'd rather not ... 
Subwoofer: should we even use them at all?

The Emotiva Challenge
Bob Carver proved he could voice an amplifier to match the presentation any other amplifier including exaggerated bass output. I think its fair to say that we all have our own sonic priorities when it comes to amplification and speaker selection.I... 
7.1 speaker placement
There's no substitute for evenly spaced speakers at ear level and a minimum of room correction. Even with my smallish home theater space, I would never go back to 5.1.In my experience the key to decent 7.1 is matching speakers (no dipole surrounds...
