  1. SOLD: FS: Pioneer VSA - E06

  2. Have to agree T2 is the best of the series (and IMHO one of the all time best action movies ever) with The Terminator a very close second, considering the MUCH lower budget of the first - it is even more remarkable. I know a lot of people hated it, but Terminator Genysis would be third on the list for me, then Terminator Salvation..... And finally Terminator 3 is a distant 5th.
  3. Hi guys Wondering if anyone has an Audyssey Mic I could borrow for a day or so to do some trouble shooting. I have a Denon AVR-4311 and the mic model is DM-A409 but I'll try any of the pyramid style Audyssey mics as this just to get a baseline measurement cheers Jamie

    Audyssey LFC (??) Means " Low Frequency Containment" ie. it cuts the low bass down so you don't wake people at night - I'd turn it OFF. Same with Dynamic Volume - Turn it off unless watching late at night
  5. This ^^^ x 2. Inexpensive to get up and running and pretty easy to setup if you follow AustinJerry's guide http://www.avsforum.com/forum/91-audio-theory-setup-chat/1449924-simplified-rew-setup-use-usb-mic-hdmi-connection-including-measurement-techniques-how-interpret-graphs.html I am dumb as a stump and basically computer illiterate and was taking measurements within an hour or so
  6. Wow! The new QA's look stunning. Glad to hear they sound as good as they look too! I had the QA Concept 20's a few years ago and loved them
  7. Item: Denon AVR-X1000 5.1 Channel Receiver Location: Brisbane North side 4502 Price: $150 $125 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Great 5.1 channel AVR.

Has Audyssey XT, which is their 2nd from the top room correction, and does a fantastic job. Comes with Remote, power cord and Audyssey setup mic.

  8. Sorbothane bumpers work excellent for decoupling too, I have my LARGE bookshelf speakers on top of my subs and have them on Sorbothane 1.5" diameter bumpers
  9. AV/HI Fi Rack Project

    Personally I'd take the easy/cost effective route and have the uprights made from 90mm x 90mm square pine https://www.bunnings.com.au/porta-90-x-90mm-1-8-standard-and-better-pine-dar_p0021158 Have Bunnings cut to size, dry fit and sand to perfect level at home, paint them black, glue and screw top and bottom and then just pick your cabinet feet. I went for these from parts express https://www.parts-express.com/penn-elcom-9106-rubber-cabinet-foot-25-dia-x-1-h--260-772 which Bunnings sell as door stops https://www.bunnings.com.au/adoored-63mm-black-rubber-door-stop_p3961320 But as noted previously something from the Leggz range would also work https://www.bunnings.com.au/leggz-65mm-wooden-square-tapered-bun-foot-furniture-leg_p3940046
  10. Help choosing speakers

    When you re-ran Audyssey what did the AVRs Subwoofer trim come out at? What crossovers did the AVR set? Did you set Dynamic Volume on or off? Dynamic EQ on or off? Can you possibly post a picture of the MLP sofa showing where the surrounds are mounted?
  11. Centre Speaker muffled

    "Muffled" sounds like it may be a phase issue. Perhaps double check your speaker cables.
  12. Acoustic treatment.

    Yes it's very good stuff, I've had mine a while, from memory I think a pack was around $300(ish). Mine was a bit more because I wanted the Black colour . I got it directly from Bradford in Brisbane, I had to drive nearly an hour each way to get it , and now their new plant is 5 mins from my house lol. I think they call it "Absorb XHD" now though
  13. Acoustic treatment.

    I'd get a pack Polymax XHD 100mm thick. Put a full sheet (2.4m x 1.2m x 100mm) behind each front speaker/subwoofer and cut the third sheet into 4 pieces (1.2m x 60cm x 100mm) and put 2 at the first reflection points and 2 either side of the picture behind your head. It comes in black or white and if your neat enough with the cuts it doesn't "require" covering to look acceptable. Also completely safe and non itchy like fibreglass.
  14. Dual SVS P2000 worth it over P1000

    Yes 100%. Had both and whilst the PB-1000 truly is an excellent performer, the PB-2000 is a definite upgrade in output and SQ. The 2000 will also go deeper than the 1000 (in-room response graph from subwoofer101.com) The PB-2000 has a larger and higher quality driver (modified Peerless xxls12), almost twice the power and a lower tuning point.........on the other hand it IS also more expensive and has a considerably larger cabinet (plus the metal grill which I personally don't like) So you'll have to weigh up the pluses and minuses. I could happily live with dual PB-1000s, but if you have the means I'd wholeheartedly recommend the PB-2000
  15. Yeah I understand that and don't get me wrong, I'm not someone that wants or needs every movie to be flat down to DC to enjoy them, a lot of my favourite movie soundtracks are filtered at 30hz or so (Pacific Rim, Both Avengers movies, Interstellar, Saving Private Ryan, Metallica:Through The Never etc) But filtering under 50hz like this and also Star Trek Beyond - I just don't see any point in that
