  1. Hi @TasiePatto, The R&D team mentioned that yes, it could be worth checking the caps given the age of the product. Perhaps even upgrade any bipolar electrolytic capacitors depending on the value if it’s practical. I hope this helps! Cheers, Michael
  2. I’ll check with R&D and see what they recommend @TasiePatto . Will PM you when I know. In general, I think if they’re sounding pretty good you should be ok!
  3. Hi @TasiePatto, If it's of interest, I have uploaded the original spec sheet here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uoc8m9s8sic1frx/ESOTERIX 1.pdf?dl=0 There weren't many made, so it's great to hear you are enjoying them! Cheers, Michael
  4. I did see these, they look amazing. Well done @Yngvi!
  5. Thanks @AudioGeek! Hi Michael, you can listen to the MX-30 at Selby Acoustics Hallam store and Carlton AV (give them a call first if you like to make it easy). I don't want to derail your thread too much (as you're looking for suggestions) but if you have any questions about the MX systems or the Pix/Cyclonix, feel free to send me a private message here on SN, or email to info@krix.com. Cheers, Michael
  6. Oh if that's the case I'd absolutely use them. The Sonix is very similar, just in a black timber cabinet with slightly different dimensions. If the Tryptix suited better as surrounds (easily wall mountable and gloss enclosure) then you could certainly pair them with Sonix at the front.
  7. Hi @raff, The Tryptix is a discontinued speaker, however 3 x Sonix would work very well here (they have the same MTM as the Tryptix and Symmetrix). I think you'd find they'd suit the application well. Cheers, Michael
  8. Hi Kevin, sorry I wasn't trying to suggest not using the Atmospherix AS, more trying to explain the differences for Kezzbot. Do you know how much depth you have to work with in the ceiling cavity?
  9. Hi @Kezzbot, not wanting to derail the thread however this may help @warek as well The Helix has a very shallow mounting depth of 86mm vs the 183mm mounting depth of the Atmospherix AS. The Helix has quite a small footprint (diameter) for the driver size, due to having mounting 'wings' instead of 'dog ear' type clips. This means they both have similar bass performance, even though enclosure sizes are quite different. To facilitate this bass performance, the Helix has a semi-open back. It is still able to keep debris etc out of the enclosure (foam damping covers the outer perimeter of the internal enclosure) while the Atmo AS has a completely closed off back box that eliminates almost all sound bleed into the roof space. This also then allows us to use a more sensitive driver, so the Atmo AS have greater sensitivity (90db vs 86db). The Atmo AS also feature a ring radiator tweeter that extends further with a bit more finesse, giving improved performance. You can perhaps think of the Helix as a versatile and compact background music, overhead effects and additionally outdoor speaker, with the Atmo AS offering a bit more in performance as more of a main multiroom music and overhead/surround effects speaker for use indoors.
  10. Hi Lino, sorry to hear this - it is a huge open space and I believe they have recently submitted plans to partition off the area so they can get the system sounding how it should. With the right amplification and EQ, an MX-30 has the capability to hit reference (while still sounding crystal clear) in a closed-off 14m deep room. The MX-20 demo room in the new Thornbury store is apparently very impressive, I'm yet to get there to hear it myself! Thanks for your thoughts and most importantly great to hear you are enjoying your home cinema.
  11. Hi @solman, I'm here If you'd like to send through a rough plan of your room to info@krix.com (with any other details you can give) I can take a look and make some recommendations on products etc. Cheers, Michael
  12. Hi @Mr_Gadget, understandable. It also makes it tricky with that noggin as sometimes they are in place for pipes or other utilities, so it's hard to recommend removing them without knowing exactly what is going on back there!
  13. The Tryptix was discontinued as the large majority of customers were choosing the in-wall equivalent (the Symmetrix). While it sounds great in practice... you're correct, it's not quite as easy as that. I'm taking on board what you are saying though and since the new immersive formats have been released a Dynamix Flat or slim on wall speaker has been a consideration. Can I politely ask your apprehension about installing the Symmetrix if you will be running the speaker cable through the wall cavity anyway? The Symmetrix (being MTM) can be rotated 180 degrees, so you can have the terminals at the top or the bottom for easier cabling.
  14. If you can get wiring into the wall cavity I'd certainly be aiming for Symmetrix or Ecliptix (similar to Hemispherix but in-wall). The cost shouldn't be too much more to go in wall than wall mounted, as long as you can work it in with studs and they are in the right position to your couch. It would certainly look nice and clean.
