  1. @rhcp_steve - Have you considered the Krix Tropix? They are similar to the SVS Prime Elevation and available in white for a good price new. I've recently installed a set of these in my system and they work well. Feel free to take a look at the latest post in my Build Thread here: https://www.krix.com.au/tropix/
  2. Hi all I wanted to provide a further update on my theatre room. I've recently added some automation (via a universal remote) and made the jump up to a Dolby Atmos setup - now running a 7.1.4 arrangement. First up, I was having issues with my stock remotes being unable to penetrate my blockout curtains to control my receiver, UHD player etc in the rack located behind the curtains. After a bit of research, and some good Xmas sales, I ended up purchasing a Logitech Harmony Campanion. This utilises a universal remote that talks to a wifi based hub which then also sends a si
  3. Hi Mike, Apologies, I think I overlooked your Dec 2020 post until now. I think your design suggestions are going a little over my head. So you're suggesting I create a moveable false wall to seal the gap in my study alcove and have one or more subs pointing out of the wall into the main listening room? That would be roughly 2m wide x 2.2m tall so sounds a bit beyond my humble multi-purpose space. Forgive my ignorance but what are the benefits of going such a large design? Wouldn't the sub placement be an issue (even with elaborate bass management/EQ)?
  4. Further information: Selling my Anthem MRX 300 AV Receiver This is an amazing 7 channel receiver for movies and music and puts previous Yamaha, Onkyo etc receivers I've had to shame. The inbuilt amplifier is far more powerful than the specs would suggest and the Anthem Room Correction (ARC) really improves the sound. It also has 7 channel pre-outs so can be used with separate power amplifiers if desired. The unit is in very good working condition. Included is the complete kit comprising of the main unit and power cable, Anthem primary remote and
  5. Hi Steve I’ve now setup the Krix and played a few chapters of two Atmos films. Initial impressions are very good. They seem to blend well with my VAF floorstanders and produce detailed sound. I’ve really noticed a difference moving to Atmos. Watched the first half of It 2 and it feels like you’re in a bubble of sound with the clown rather than 2D.
  6. Went with a set of Krix Tropix. They’re actually marketed as outdoor speakers but are a similar design to the SVS. Very flexible mounting options (wall or ceiling), compact and Krix assured me they will still perform well for indoor Atmos duties. I’m yet to set them up but can report back once I’ve given them a run.
  7. No longer required. Ended up getting a set of Krix. 😊
  8. Can I ask what model Krix you have on the wall in the background? A decent Atmos option?

  10. Further information: Selling my Selby Acoustics 130" 16:9 ratio fixed frame projector screen with flocked black velour frame. Purchased from Selby Acoustics on 29 November 2019 and was only used for a few months before I transitioned to a different room and screen in the house. RRP was $800 when I purchased it. Note there was a small 5mm tear in one edge of the fabric when I took delivery of the screen so I have a brand new roll of fabric from Selby. This has not even been removed from the packaging so you are essentially getting a brand new screen.
  11. I ended up picking up a Logitech Harmony Companion (wifi hub based) in the Boxing Day sales. The new universal remote works well through the curtains with the IR blaster tucked around the back pointed at my gear rack, but the Logitech setup is quite problematic I'm finding. Very tedious and programming is not working as I would have expected. E.g. you seem to have to program everything based on the 'activities' which turn on various devices, but when you leave that activity it seems to run a routine that turns off various inputs (and I cannot see a way to disable this). Also, trying to perform
  12. Thanks Gibbo. I did look at Selby for an IR extender and the one you linked looks good but seems to be out of stock. I've now made the mistake of watching a couple of quick youtube videos of the Logitech Harmony Companion. Geez the capabilities of that thing look impressive. The reviews I saw didn't really focus on the IR blaster performance though. It's as if the hub itself transmits a 360 degree IR signal for any device within sight. If a device is blocked from the main hub then the IR blaster seems to act as a secondary transmitter. So if I ran the IR blaster maybe 30cm in front
