    The view from my chair.

    At first glance I didn't even see the speakers! I thought they were column supports or something.

    Foam panels on back wall

    Directly from their website. I recommend emailed them with any questions. Phil was very helpful and responds quickly.
  3. Hi, I've had my Arcam CD72 cd player remote control packed in a box since I moved house 18 months ago. Yesterday I had the house to myself for a change and fetched the remote so I could sit my backside on the couch and change tracks. I wasn't surprised that the batteries were flat so I changed them and found the the remote does not work What are the chances of finding a replacement remote or getting it repaired?

    In ceiling recommendations/experiences

    I have some Krix hemispherix AS in ceiling as my rear speakers in a 5.1 system, they are very good. http://www.krix.com.au/hemispherix-as/

    Foam panels on back wall

    Yes I can definitely tell the difference, I don't have any before and after test measurements but I'm happy with the improvements. It is not a dedicated room so I can't do much else. To improve further i'd have to put some panels on the ceiling (never going to happen). I still have some empty space at the back below the 3 panels and to the back side wall, will probably put some shelves or a cabinet there so may have some further improvements to acoustics.

  7. You can ask CMF Acoustics http://www.cmfacoustics.com.au/acousticartpanels.htm i bought some plain fabric absorbers from them but they can do just the prints for you. No idea on cost or print quality but the plain fabric ones I bought are good quality. I have some photos of them here. Sorry, not the best photos from my phone.

    My Setup

    Installed some CMF acoustic panels today. Still need to do the panel behind right speaker. I have a panel sitting on window sill behind curtain (behind left speaker) and another panel on left window sill just forward of the speaker.

    Well I've bought a few absorption panels, will experiment with placement in a couple of weeks when they are delivered. I don't think I'll have the issue of a dead room with corner window and 2 room openings (no doors).

    Triangle Esprit Comete or Focal Aria 906

    Hi guys, I'm tempted to buy a pair of the titus speakers for my living room. I am limited budget wise but was hoping to power them (or another similar speaker) with the Yamaha WXA-50. Do you think this combo would work ok? This place is actually selling them as a package (not that I would buy it from there)
  15. The small Krix impressed me the most I think. Big sound from small bookshelves, not the prettiest though IMO I liked the small Legend floorstander too, i wanted to hear their Joeys but they were not playing the 3 times I went into the room.
