  1. Wow.........That is DEEP..........You should get a happy start and middle too!!!! Might be just able to manage the MSB if I sell my entire system..........oh hang on.....šŸ¤£ Maybe I will just start saving for the remote and take it from there.
  2. Looks like you and BugPowderDust need your own lists!!!!! Compared to you two I am just a bargain basement guy........šŸ™‚ BTW....Your Auralic is a looker....šŸ‘Œ
  3. Yeah all the DAC's mentioned were ones that I could afford!!!!šŸ˜„ What do you have? FWIW..... Best DAC I ever heard so far was actually a mates Jeff Rowland AERIS Wonderful unit................. but at $15K so it should be!!!!!!!šŸ˜µ
  4. Hope that got your attention....LOL Anyway so rewind several years back to when I decide I want to explore affordable external DACS to see if I can beat my OPPO 105's performance. Here's the journey in a nutshell...... 1. Benchmark DAC2HGC Bought used from U.S. for around $2K Beat my OPPO convincingly and life was good. Then bought an OPPO 205 for 4K viewing and, after a playoff, I decided the Benchmark was just a little bit short of the mark re SQ "bang for buck" so off it went. 2. Gieseler Klein DACIII (with Kraftwerk PSU
  5. Everyone here should also consider speaker height as an important factor. Try listening with your tweeters at ear height and adjust accordingly. If not practical maybe you could try adjustments to MLP height. Either way expect differences in presentation. šŸ™‚
  6. Hi, I have a Gustard X16 available in black. Planning an upgrade to latest X26Pro. In as new condition with only a handful of hours on it. ( bought Jan 2021 ) Let me know if you're interested. Cheers, John
  7. See AussieVintages Post above. And see Post #3 here..........https://www.avsforum.com/threads/to-bi-amp-or-not-to-bi-amp.2772561/
  8. Passive bi amping is a waste of money. Much better bang for buck just buying a better amp.
  9. All the 3 way ATC models crossover at 380Hz and 3.5kHz.
  10. Here's a very informative comprehensive comparison............. Make sure you scroll down all the way. https://www.audioadvice.com/videos-reviews/anthem-avm-home-theater-processors-review/?__cf_chl_captcha_tk__=40f6d454a3360f6e79889510f10b774b535c9676-1614838696-0-AXtj8W3EQItGn27DyNQcjxwJIpHIgmSJCZZaP_bSKPAaIT8rEgWazT88-rDuX3DGQ6hRXwQ4EmffNy0aRunCunbV0pf2YL1PN8XmnGNqMzdiw3c-KS0jTyz19YQIXP_1vvxJtwFKa6T4dk63b7qvtpJ8GjpF3Yoy2XkOVsgynh4zulTMnD5uaVIHBJw4PnJfkXrwFi6WGjCzzwrKY5Dms26HnnpCpiakhcGn38yKv7OCvtlqf8gMfw7bz6CRG1IzbK918tSRR1jVcgwFZK2O0CgpUB2We_gUYMqMPMsU7x4ROcHA--r2Fvm
  11. Make sure you sit them on decent stands at the right height. I recommend tweeters around ear level and on the inside as a good starting point with some toe in as required. Check that no bolts and/or screws are loose. Stick some blu tack under the cabinets to secure to stands. Will respond to quality amplification but don't go silly with SPL's or you'll fry them.
  12. If you don't think you will get into ATMOS for a while if at all then you should buy something a lot cheaper. My old Integra DHC 80.3 still does everything I need it to in my 5.2 system beautifully. Used ones sell now for under $1K..........just an example. Look at used pre ATMOS models from Marantz etc......and save HEAPS!!!!!!!! Just make sure it has quality Room EQ on board. Something like this maybe......... https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Anthem-AVM50-7-1-Channel-A-V-Processor-with-Anthem-Room-Correction-ARC/143731266656?hash=item217
