  1. Nothing else would come near this for the price!!!!! A Hi capped bargain. Why isn't it sold yet???......😕 GLWTS
  2. This article describes the advantages of actives really well. http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/manufacture/0403/ I know there's no going back for me..............☺️
  3. Might be worth reserving judgement until OP's P15 has more hours on it. Hopefully he will post again in the near future with an update....?😉
  4. All I know is that a brand new player costing LESS than some of the discs it can play is just.............. weird!!!!!😵
  5. Hope it's not a health issue..........good bloke
  6. Generally I would expect a decent dedicated stereo pre to outperform a AV Pre/Pro in stereo SQ. Of course it will depend on the actual Stereo Pre and AV Pre/Pro in question. Try and play them off if you can. FWIW and IME........ In my system............an ATC stereo pre gave me a clearly better sonic result than an Integra AV Pre/Pro did for stereo listening.
  7. The active ATC's are absolutely stunning.........especially with their matching pre. Can't see you getting a new pair for anywhere near $20K though... Here's a prime example of a great lightly used pair with the new (much lauded) in house tweeters that would be around your budget.... https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/233306162295
  8. No, actually it's a step up from the LX range. KRP stood for Kuro Reference Panel. All Pioneer concentrated on with this range was best possible PQ which actually included some 10th gen tech. The (even more expensive)!!!!) panel was sold "barebones"........not even an onboard HD FTA tuner..... plus you also had to buy the speakers and stand separately. The absolute pinnacle of plasma tech at the time.
  9. Actually the last gen flagship Pio was the KRP series. Have compared my twice calibrated 10 year old KRP 500M with latest Oleds......... OLED's are still bigger.....😏 As the OP owns neither...…...my recommendation would be to dump his 6th gen anyway.
  10. I reckon it was definitely worth doing and I don't even have a 4K TV. Bigger HDD.........plus you can also record all the FTA HD channels...... And, apparently, they are now about to incorporate Netflix as well......
  11. Highly doubtful but also highly subjective. FWIW........my used 2mt pair only cost $2K and I could never go back........😄 Considering that Tobes is using quality Benchmark gear into high end actives.......and has already gone with higher end AC cables and connectors..... .......why wouldn't you explore higher end I/C options?..... Anyway........I sure am glad I did!!!! Listen to some if you can and then you will know where you stand.
  12. I strongly suggest you try and audition a set of Cardas Clear XLR I/C's. After that I highly doubt that you would still stick by your statement.......😊.
