AVS is like Myspace to me, the color scheme almost gives me epilepsy...:D
Honestly, I'm still trying to find a home audio forum that I can really get into, the best discussions seem to be on Audioasylum but their board software is circa 1991 and makes things hard to find or keep up with.

I hate AVS forum just because of that color scheme...
Plus every time I go over there someone says something really dumb and everyone jumps on his bandwagon even though it is completely wrong...
DIYAudio has some of the best technical discussions, but every thread there gets like 10+ pages and turns into an epic archive.
But it's good for a read. I lurk there and occasionally ask a n00bish question if something doesn't make sense to me.

There aren't any good HT forums. I only visit them when I do a search and they have threads pertaining to my query. :p:

re: DIYAudio, solid state section
There's a handful of good people in that large fish boil of wannabe electronics
people who think they know what they are doing, but really don't. It's easier
to filter out the bs if you take some electronics classes, otherwise don't take
every word as being golden. Nelson Pass making a home there probably lifted
the forum to new popularity long ago.
re: AVS forum
The newly added DIY speaker area is coming along pretty nice. Like many forums,
it's concentrated in sub builds. I've punished alot of people on amplifier myth
so they are coming around :lol:
The theater construction area is good.
The $20k section is comedy, good for laughs.
The projector threads are informative.
If not for a few posters, that forum is no better than anywhere else. Thomas
seems to implement 'Nazi' based forum moderation; if you don't agree, post rights removed, view only.
"I want to build low cost speakers and post alot of OT topics because I like
"I'm too cheap to afford modern forum software", a few die hards try to keep it
alive. The recent migration to new software is only worse.
