  1. When you say ‘bottom of the barrel’ do you mean average in features and screen technology? For me, over the years I’ve changed my outlook on how I buy TVs. Back at n ‘95 I ‘splurged’ $3k on a 30-something-inch tv and expected to keep it many years. Now, I just bought a $2k, 86” TV and am fine replacing it in about five years. With the velocity of technology these days I think it’s more common for people to buy a more average level device and replace it more often.
  2. Baubas Cat & Neo1738 - can you each provide an update on your solution? I waited too long to figure out a solution and my HVAC crew just contacted me about installing the humidistats, which they explained are generic large dials ... nothing I want seen anywhere:( I have 2 humidifiers on opposite sides of home and want to find remote sensors (hopefully 'small' in size) that can be used. Current plan for thermostats is to use 2 Ecobees in the laundry room that work off remote sensors (not using readings in the laundry room where the units are located). Drywall starts tomorrow so I need a solution quickly. TIA.
  3. I have Cat6 run to my bedroom/TV location, I'll buy a 50" TV this November during Black Friday. Probably a Samsung for ~ $400 so not sure if that will get me a LAN port. So if I want to have capability to play a BluRay located across house in a rack will a balun provide that? How do I control the disk - does this require an EA1 in the bedroom that communicates back to the EA3/homebase or is a C4 remote in the bedroom (+ balun) all I need to use a BluRay located in the rack?
  4. PM sent. I’m interested in them.
  5. Yeah, could just be luck. Once I started looking I found a listing from someone moving out of country and selling 3 of the in-ceiling ones ... recently sold.
  6. I have a single Silver/6 LCR inwall speaker I'm going to use for one of my front channels and am looking for another preowned one. If anyone also has the in-ceiling Silver LCR I'd be interested in that also - it's the one that fires down at a 45 deg angle. I'm going to put the Left/Right speakers in the wall, on both sides of the TV, but I'm putting the center channel up in the ceiling above the TV aiming down toward the coaches. Use is a Great Room, not a dedicated Home Theater.
  7. Battery or wired? My quote for 5'x6' wired are about $1200/shade.
  8. Thx. I have heard of the WIDR style before but couldn't find which line, ie Triathlon, they were part of.
  9. Which line of Lutron shades are up to 12' x 12'? Does anyone else do that and do it well?
  10. What is the price breakdown of Triad sub+amp vs Episode sub+amp? thx.
  11. I know the power/channel is quite a bit higher - what other characteristics make it next-gen over the outgoing Control4 branded components?
  12. My current plans are to get the 8-zone Triad PAMP & Matrix for new home build. I'm sure I could spend less or more but at this point I'm thinking it's a good quality solution. I'd like to get feedback from those with experience of other amp/matrices - do you consider this middle of the road or recommended option for multi-zone audio, and why? I could save quite a bit by buying pre-owned C4 components from eBay but am leaning toward the new eqmt from my Integrator. I appreciate your input.
  13. I'm not clear on this - what do you mean by 'all native?' Currently my family uses primarily Spotify and occasionally Amazon Music, but nothing else. So they're not going to want to switch to another streaming service when I get my system in a few months. I've been trying to read up on Spotify/C4 and it doesn't seem it's 100% integrated (i.e. search songs, choose songs/playlists/stations directly from iPhone) but I haven't found a complete write-up on how it works in C4 or it's limitations. Can you expand on this? TIA
