    Marantz AV8805. Worth waiting for?

    Are you running Audessey Reference? I see the cinema EQ in the sound mode I think. Never had it greyed out. I only use 6 points of data, dont need 8 for my case.

    Marantz AV8805. Worth waiting for?

    Try to enable the "cinema EQ" setting. It is default to "off". This softens the edge of the metallic sound. I prefer having it enabled for watching movie / concert. Also, I find the 8805 needs about a week or 2 to burn in properly, so out of the box it does sound a bit more harsh than the traditional marantz sound. I find it is pretty good now, probably not as good as the Audiocontrol M3 for music and concert, but the Audessey calibration with Atmos is sensational.
  4. Have updated listing to include shipping details.
  5. To be honest, it is chalk and cheese between the utopia and 804 and it should be. As according to the current direct replacement cost, the utopia is nearly 5 times more.
  6. Sorry. I mean the b&W is 804
  7. What do you mean which model?
  8. sorry, item already sold prior. Have closed thread.
  9. Item: Focal Alto Utopia BE speakers (Focal Signature Colour) Location: Adelaide Price: 9600 (Current replacement is the Focal Scala Utopia V2 which RRP - $57,000) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Want to try something else Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Shipping: As I have had many inquiries in regards to shipping cost. To give an idea of shipping cost, I have contacted pack and send and they have quoted me $950 to package it up, put it on a pallet and send it from Adelaide to Perth with $10,000 freight insurance. Obviously this will be cheaper if it is going to nearby cities e.g Melbourne / Sydney / Brisbane. Extra Info: After thinking for a while, I think it is time for me to let this go and try something different as I have owned many Focal speakers previously already. So this pair of lovely speakers are up for sale. This speaker is the top of the line "Utopia" range for Focal. Best of the best for the French company. It is much better than the current line of Electra BE or Sopra range. Exceptional speakers, very transparent and detailed. Will show you every minor changes you make to your system. End game speakers for me, but life is too short to not try another pair. I dont have original box so shipping will need to be via pack n send. Welcome to come for home audition and happy to help out with delivery by meeting up half way for any Eastern state buyer.

    FS: SVS Sound Path Isolation Feet

    Yes, I currently use another set for my SVS SB16 Ultra. No contest in terms of bang for buck improvement for sub.
  13. Item: SVS Sound Path Isolation Feet (pack of 4) Location: Adelaide Price: $70 ($10 shipping Australia wide) - RRP $120 AUD Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Great feet for subwoofer (or speakers), lots of raving reviews online. I used it under my Focal speakers to improve bass response and have since upgraded, so now this is surplus. It should fit other subwoofer / speakers as it comes with lots of different screws. Comes with original box and accessories. SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System The SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System works with nearly every subwoofer brand and model to improve bass performance while reducing floor and wall vibrations, noise artifacts and complaints from neighbors or roommates. De-coupling a subwoofer from the floor results in inherently tighter and cleaner sounding bass. It’s also the next best thing to sound-proofing and ideal for carpeted rooms, hardwood floors or any space where room rattles, buzzes or vibrations are present. How Does De-coupling Improve Performance? Decoupling is making the interaction between a subwoofer and floor so weak that virtually no energy is transferred between them. The SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System features rigorously tested optimized durometer elastomer feet that significantly reduces the transmission of subwoofer energy through your floor and walls. This allows low frequency effects to be transferred through the air where they can be felt, resulting in tighter and cleaner sounding bass, no more distracting buzz or rattle from the room, and better sonic clarity and dynamics. Be A Better Neighbor Infrasonic jolts and subterranean levels of bass bring our entertainment to life, but they can also disturb neighbors and roommates because the longer, low frequency sound waves travel more effortlessly through walls and floors than mid-range and high frequency waves. It’s the reason your neighbor can hear a helicopter descending much louder than glass breaking. The SVS SoundPath Isolation System drastically reduces the bass notes and low frequency vibrations your neighbors and roommates will notice. A Discreet, Affordable Alternative To Subwoofer Platforms And Risers The SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System feet come in a variety of thread sizes that easily screw into any subwoofer’s existing threaded inserts and subtly elevate the sub enclosure on a cushion of elastomer encased in stainless steel. The understated feet are a stylish, more effective alternative to bulky risers and platforms, at a fraction of the cost and also work with some turntables and other components. Pictures:

    EOI: Focal Alto Utopia BE speakers

    Bump. Seeing if there are anymore interests before I sell my B&W setup and keep the Focal Utopia for home theatre.
