  1. That is a shame. And I do wonder which companies will stick it out as they may remain to be quite profitable. There's a market, perhaps even a dwindling market but there is one. So I guess gaining that market share or abandoning is the way.. I had great quality things from them over the years... 640R Receiver 751BD Blu ray player
  2. Thanks all. It will be hard letting them go. It took me years to acquire four units and I enjoyed using them. Their vast tuning and refining capability is really still unmatched and their tone is so, so accurate. But I went a full Krix setup, which wasn't cheap, and these are just unused. (I did sell off the 'baby' 15-inch a year or so ago...)
  3. Item: 2 x Velodyne DD18 Subwoofers in gloss Black Location: Brisbane Price: $2,250 each or $4,200 for the pair (Were $7,999 EACH when new (or $4,999 USD)) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No longer required or used. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Re-listing these pair of amazing subs as I do need to move them on to contribute to the home deposit and are no longer used. This is really a last effort for me to move these on as they're just sitting there. . . I cannot offer for lower to let them go due to the huge cost initially. And if they don't sell I may just integrate them back into my theatre with my other subs given how flexible these are with configuration. For those who follow Velodyne closely, there's potential continued support to come in line with Audio Reference purchasing Velodyne: https://www.stereo.net.au/news/new-owners-and-new-life-for-velodyne-subwoofers The Digital Drive series represent Velodyne's best subwoofer engineering for industry leading lowest THD, quoting less than 1% @ RMS (1250W). The following article is a great, short summary comparing to the previous HGS18: https://www.soundandvision.com/content/way-down-deep-iii-velodyne-dd18 With their servo-control technology which gives the ability to 'tighten' the driver resonance stiffness, these are almost impossible to beat in terms of tonal accuracy. This makes them very diverse for home theatre use and the perfect company for musical lovers. With a sealed enclosure, these offer great extension down to 14hz +/- 3dB, 1250W RMS / 3000W dynamic power and ofcourse their Texas Instruments built in software with fully configurable: - 5 x customisable presets inc volume, EQ & all below settings - 8-band parametric EQ with variable frequency, Q and level - Servo-control (tightness) 1 - 8 - Volume, including 'Night Mode' limitation - HPF, inc 6 - 48db increments. - LPF, inc 6-48db increments. - Phase - in 15Hz increments. - Polarity 0/180 degree With the included accessory kit which has professional microphone kit, you can visually see the response via the Subwoofer's VIDEO OUT. This was pretty leading edge for a subwoofer to have built in software when these were released. See the visual output more here: https://hometheaterhifi.com/volume_10_4/velodyne-dd-18-subwoofer-12-2003-part-1.html Both subs will be packed in Velodyne original packaging and include original manual and full accessory kit for each and I can also throw in RS-232 cables if you want to pair them - Yes; they can daisy chain. One unit had over $2,000 of repairs done 18 - 24 months ago - so every single piece of electronics in that unit is replaced, including amp module. Both work perfectly, include remotes, accessory kit. Freight NOT included in the price. Each box is approx 1m x 1m 65KG I've also a DD18 in OAK I'll release for an extra $1,000 if buying the black pair as I am not sure it may not be coming into some problems. (output volume is only about half the others - so you have to double the volume level on the unit) Feel free to PM me with any questions.
  4. Thanks @betty boop I sold my DD15.. But have the 2x black DD18 left and a DD18 in Oak. All for sale. I transitioned to full Krix Series X
  5. Pics is a hard one, especially when packed in a box! 3 x Velodyne DD18 subwoofers sitting surplus 2 x Dali Concept 1 bookshelf speakers And if it's not in use it's available to buy! 🤣
  6. I also run one of these in my 4k set-up still using the HDMI connection to route the audio. It is an exceptional unit with very extensive and advanced customisable configurations for the value. Good luck with the sale. Great deal for anyone given they neared a $8k RRP on today's exchange rates...
  7. Did for me. From last years show following the Krix demo room... After finally being able to hear their Series X subs in person, well set up, I replaced my four Velodyne Digital Dries with 2x Cyclonix. More sensitive, more dynamics for less watts and pair better with the mains. Which also resulted in by-product of replacing my processor with an Anthem AVM50 ex demo at the same time...
  8. Good call. I run various acoustic treatment and bass definitely needs the attention. Generally start with the opposing corners to the Subwoofer and go from there. If right, what you mainly notice is a slight tightening of your bass response. That's when you know you're controlling runaway frequency resonances....
  9. +1 to all of the comments above. EQing to a single spot will likely cost you watts and dynamics and potentially degrade other positions. Averages across say 3-5 seating positions is always good. Mixing two different subs my opinion is play each to their strengths. Don't try and make them mimic each others capability if they are different. Why? You need to assess each brand and model of sub for their SPL and sensitivity specs. Then you need to level match. Then again post EQ. I'd suggest going 2way if two different branded subs... And cross them over at different settings based on what your room lacks. E.g. LFE crossover @ 80hz to Sub A, then high pass @ maybe 45hz, 12dB per octave to Sub B Sub B low pass 50hz 12dB per octave, low pass usual 15hz or something. This example would be if you wanted more low bass below the 50hz region, or if you have uneven nodes. It gets complex with different brands and types. Having said that, it depends how meticulous you are...... [emoji51] [emoji56]
  10. Correct Jerome. However in the above mentioned case your TV would sending an input to the AV receiver, which would be plugging into an input port, not a HDMI output port. I don't know how many TV's out there a pushing HDMI out, most just take inputs and then have an optical audio output.
  11. Some are directional and some are not. Mainly this is whether the cable has dedicated Ethernet or Audio Return Channel going on from what I understand. If it does have the directional arrow, best to plug it into whatever you want to receive it. E.g. Blu ray player to projector (so an output to an input) the arrow should put into the projector input. Follow this methodology for audio, ARC, Ethernet etc from your various sources
  12. It doesn't look like there's a page yet established for this so here's a thread dedicated to Krix Series X and MX range. It's open to the discussion for any current owners around configurations of how we run them, set-up and experiences so we can share knowledge between our fellow Krix users and also for anyone interested to know more about them or fire any questions. Let's keep this topic to Series X and MX, as there's already another Krix thread, which is probably better to discuss their other range of products. Their range can be viewed via www.krix.com.au > Products > Series MX or Series X
  13. I think, Dave, that PoE+ speaker via that link isn't necessarily the majority of what we are discussing here which is home theatre, pro audio and maybe cinema level. Yes, it's achievable but even that little speaker also has a 12V power supply inlet. And you're right there are some active speakers with Dante built in but I'd say that's minimal and for good reason. By putting more electronics in a speaker and converting it from a passive device to an active device more problems are introduced... Power supplies, fuses, is it 'on', maintainenace and accessibility is a massive oversight in that theory. There are (good) reasons Dante (or any other protocol) ceases no later than the amplifier sound stage. Picture a PA, hung 10 or metres in the air - the last thing you need is to have a point of failure be introduced there. Say it drops out mid show, you can't just lower it. Or a cinema where the speakers are behind a screen, high up on walls, etc. By design, keeping speakers as passive and 'dumb' as possible means less points of failure, less maintenance and less access required. And lets the components stay as components. The other thing, we know technology ages whereas speakers generally do not. They have a much, much longer shelf life. Alter that and now the speakers go out of date too
  14. Yeah I saw that post. Very cool. Over time it would be good to see market demand bring other manufacturers to introduce it thus driving costs down so it's able to be acquired from all tiers of budgets
