  1. That’s a smoking price! Centre speakers just don’t hold their value for some reason. I really enjoy mine with my Q900s. They didn’t change much on the new models for those with them. GLWTS
  2. I used the MiniDSP with he Sunfire and couldn't get a result I like. The SVS I have is the new '1000Pro' version has the same DSP into like the 2000Pro.
  3. Hey, thought I'd share my experience with the new SVS SB-1000 Pro for anyone considering one. I previously had a Sunfire HRS12 which was great for movies using the AVRs room correction (Audyessy) but not so good with stereo using CXA-80 or my current Parasound Halo 1, as there is a null/suck out from 35-45hz. I did try a MiniDSP with it but couldn't get a result I was happy with and the output volume for the MiniDSP was so low the sub would go into standby too easily and I swear there was a delay even if there isn't supposed to be. My room is small to medium 4.5x3.2m with 3m high c
  4. I'm using Kef LSX and a JL Audio Dominion d108 combo as a WFH desktop setup with great results. Maybe look at some active speakers that offer some level of DSP and other tweaking and you'll still get it under $4000. That would Mean less boxes in the room, but more power points required. Its fun to spend other peoples money
  5. I brought it second hand in feb 2017. Is there any way to tell? I believe I have compensated for that price wise. Cheers
  6. Further information: The Sunfire HRS-12 is a legit 1000Wrms 12inch subwoofer designed by Bob Carver which is still $2649 rrp (apollohifi). Heaps of output for its size which Audioholics rated it 'large room'. I have used it in a loft apartment and a small lounge room with great results. Paired with Jamo c803, Elac 243.3 and currently KEF Q900s. I still have the double boxes, but no shipping I'm sorry, pick up only. I have also owned the HRS-8 and the extra cone area of the 12 took it another level. I was looking for a second one to go dual for a while but another one never came up at
  7. Hey, my wife asked me today “ is there anything I can do about the bad sound on her mum’s TV cause music is harsh and gives her (my wife) a headache”. Finally some recognition for my HiFi setup ? She has tasted the good life and better yet can now appreciate the difference. So proud. Anyone else have a story to share? Cheers
  8. Just tested as I don’t do it often, but no lip sync issues ? see for yourself!
  9. Airplay can stream CD quality. The limiting factor is YouTube. The CXN dac is used in this setup, so benefits from the StreamMagic up sampling.
  10. Further information: It's great and surprisingly heavy dac and stream with twin sabre dacs and loads of inputs. I have a CXN V1 and would say it's just as good, but the CXN has a better screen. I would be holding onto it if I had a good enough reason, but I don't want to box it up and forget about it in storage. I was using via USB in my WFH setup and I can't fault it. I did previously use in my lounge room before I got the CXN (to match my CXA80) and using it either for spotify connect or DLNA streaming flac files it was faultless. I have the box, remote an
  11. Further information: I was using these in my WFH setup but I have just upgraded to KEF LSX. The are great bang for buck and paired with the sub (Yamaha YST-SW315 add $50 if you want that to) it is a really fun 2.1 system for an office near field or a bedroom or garage. It would bring a smile to my face every now and then, but upgradeitis gets us all FYI rest of the system was a Elekit preamp (I am keeping) and a Pioneer N-50A (also for sale). It's the cheapest 2.1 around at the moment. I have the box for the monitors, power cables and manual so can post the
  12. I'd say you've scored a great sub and in 2005 ($3750 USD). Genelec make great studio gear from what I have seen/read but I haven't been lucky enough to hear any in person. 18Hz at -3dB is what you want in a sub. https://www.stereophile.com/subwoofers/1105genelec/index.html If your amp is putting out the LFE signal then the sub should have all it needs as it is self powered. Maybe play about with the sub settings as there looks to have a lot of switches to get wrong
