  1. It’s a panorama shot showing sidewallls of a very large bedroom with its own lounge in a guys “weekender” - listens to a lot of surround music - massive room with extremely high ceilings - the 4 marquis look lost in the space - he plans on adding sovereign as the fronts if he can locate a pair - will then use the marquis as rear and sides - has some other duntechs from the gem stone range as well - will eventually move them all into a dedicated space that is being built as a HT/music room - quite sensational to hear 4 marquis at once - walks are 4ft thick solid stone
  2. Surround sound in the bedroom with 4x marquis - very impressive
  3. Well I was sad to have sold the duntechs but simply was not enjoying them in such a compromised listening position - they have gone to a great home as part of a marquis surround system in a massive room - awesome. so back playing with my collection and wow these stacked JVCs are helping the sellers regret to a large degree. I’ve now moved them down onto some spiked stands in granite blocks - a little lower (still a bit too high) and another 30cm from wall - in sitting 2m from them in the diagonal - have moved them out wider as well to 2.4m on centre - now they are not duntechs but great detail from the ribbon tweeters and mids and the bass is sensational. added in some sound treatment I had for rear wall and tuned the position of both sets of speakers individually - soundstage is larger and suddenly everything’s really tightened up with great imaging - something I was struggling with being to close to the duntechs 👍 gotta love when the passion returns
  4. I’m definitely not interested - will let you know
  5. Cheers steve - will do - I am working on two assumptions - the Rotel is well underrated based on my readings of others experienced and the JVCs don’t actually present that difficult a load - also based on some readings of others experience - but can’t find and real world testing - I’ll also not be playing that loud as I’m in a compromised listening set up so near field at 1.5m did find the following specs on the amp Power Amplifier Section : Continuous Power Output : 80 watts per channel, min. RMS both channels driven into 8 ohms or 110 watts per channel, min. RMS both channels driven into 4 ohms from 20Hz to 20kHz with no more than 0.1% Total Harmonic Distortion Harmonic Distortion ............: 0.1% at rated power output 20Hz to 20kHz Intermodulation Distortion ... : 0.05% at 1kHz, rated power output -1dB Frequency Response ......... : 5Hz - 100kHz, - 1dB at 1 watt per channel Damping Factor ................. : 70 ± 10% Input Sensitivity/Impedance : 1000mV/54kΩ Speaker Impedance ........... : 4 to 16Ω, A or B ; 8 to 16Ω, A + B
  6. Running of speaker a and speaker b out let’s - speakers are 6ohm - Rotel states 8 ohm for speakers a @ b but the Rotel 1312 is pretty solid beast - no signs of strain in driving both sets so far
  7. Finally got around to setting these up - alway wanted some JVC Zero 9s but have had to settle with a pair of JVC Zero 4s stacked on top of some JVC Zero 5s - thanks to Jake for storing the 5s for over 5 years for me - sound is pretty amazing 😉
  8. I have the marquis and have recently had to reconfigure my listening room as a shared space - what I thought was going to be a big compromise has surprised me - I’ve gone from a 4x6m set up to a near field listening set up - still 3foot out from wall but I’m sitting approx 1.2m from speakers - amazing change - try several configs in your space and see what you like
  9. Yep good thing he asked for his account to be deleted - the forum doesn’t need and more delicate petals cluttering up the mods valuable time
  10. Harder than you think - I only got two correct https://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2019-08-12/how-to-spot-a-fake-review/11406160
  11. Seriously people are overthinking this / just enjoy the forum and ignore those that you disagree with - if you don’t like the forum move on - moderators do a good job - no one needs to write a new rule book or re-educate the population - talk about audio and music more and worry less about others And have a drink https://youtu.be/xaEWrtLAUKM
