  1. I haven't had a chance to write this, but after much debating between two different brands I have ended up replacing my Epson TW9000W with the new Epson TW9400. I bought it a couple of months ago and am very happy with the unit. A special thanks to Oztheatre for his advice on this product, and other products. I wont say anymore in-case its not allowed as he is a Commercial Member.
  2. Thanks Anewmission for the offer, but I have been able to source a local person to do the installation work.
  3. Does any know of any good Home Theatre/Audio Installers in the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie Area NSW.?> Any recommendations. Thanks you.
  4. 😀😀 Edward was one of the people who told me to look at the Accento-Dynamica range.
  5. Thanks I check out the Niles range, as for the dynabox, yes heard of them. I bel Al has mentioned/recommands them in other posts as well.
  6. In another post titled Av Receiver Upgrade/Advice I mentioned i was looking at getting Krix Ceiling Speakers Atmospherix A20. I'm just trying to work out if they are worth the cost (under 2k for 4 speakers retail price) or is their something similar, that will do roughly the same job , but not that expensive. Currently or will be my 3 front speakers are from Adelaide Speakers Timberwolf series, including the Sub and my 4 rear speakers are from Emotiva (Similar to) Airmotiva E1 surround speakers As I been told by other members/Store owners/Friends to look at Monitor Audio C165 6.5 or Monitor Audio C165T2 or Accento-Dynamica ADS65-100MG or Yamaha NS-IC600. ?> Your Thoughts or advice?> Apart from the Yamaha, they all come with back covers or something similar. Thanks for taking your time in reading this..
  7. Good post Snoopy, Luckily my Elektra will taker care of over half my speakers, and most likely i upgrade it to run 7 speakers, then down the track if needed my a second hand power amp for the rest of the speakers, or something similar like Emotiva XPA11. My only concern now, thanks to all the good replies i got so far is to get receiver that has all latest tech, sound codecs etc..
  8. good point snoopy and I will be checking "using the total power consumption of AVRs as a better guide." So far I checked SR6014 680W AVRX3600H 660W
  9. Thanks, I check for a price to upgrade the Amp through Arthur. Good idea.

  11. Thanks for the info, but unless I wait for all the components to be 2.1 HDMI, to my knowledge I wont see the benefits.
  12. Thanks Another good read: https://www.zkelectronics.com/compare/denon-avr-x3600h/usa/marantz-sr6014/usa/ The SR6014 just wins on that review site. That's a good price on the Denon as well. Just need to work out if buying Emotiva BASX A-5175 is overkill....
  13. Background info: Within the next 3 months I will be doing a major upgrade to the components in the home theatre room. One of the upgrades is the Av receiver. Room size is 6m Long 4.1m Wide, and roughly 3m in Height (Step down 2 levels) Components staying: Elektra Theatre HD2 5 Channel Amp, Oppo 105D (Mod), Home Theatre Computer, Adelaide Speakers - Central Speaker and Subwoofer and Emotiva (Similar to) Airmotiva E1 surround speakers. Buying Soon: Timberwolf Series Front speakers (Adelaide Speakers) plus Kriz Ceiling Speakers Atmospherix A20 either 2 or 4 speakers, leading towards 2 due to room size. Wish-list/ Buying Soonish 4k Player (Panasonic Brand)and 4k Projector (JVC or Epson) Sound setup will be either 7.1.2 or 7.1.4. (I will not be going any bigger due to room size) Budget up to $4000.00 for receiver Question: I'm looking at either the Denon AVR-X3600 or Marantz SR6014?> Your Thoughts or advice?> Have discarded the Marantz AV7705 as I think its overkill and Anthem MRX-720 as I believe it needs a update. Will be pairing the receiver with my Elektra for Front duties and thinking of getting the Emotiva BASX A-5175 for the rear duties unless people think its a overkill, as I'm in two minds on this, as i know the internal Amps on the receiver should do an ok job for the rears and ceiling speakers.. ?>> Thanks for taking your time in reading this..
  14. Let us know your thoughts on it once you have set up, would be interested to hear as I still got my 9000w and I know its time for a upgrade to..
  15. So both have their good points and bad. Either one would be a good buy..
  16. Very Nice, looking forward to your review as well.
  17. It will be interesting to see the results of the shoot out between the BenQ w5700 and the Epson 9400, when he does it.
  18. HDobsession I bel you can buy them now, Check https://www.westcoasthifi.com.au/ or https://clefhifi.com.au/catalog/index.php , most likely other stores will have them soon as well, the two mentioned were the first two that came up in the search.
  19. Their is a Australian review on the New Epson 9400 projector from Sound and Image Magazine, worth reading if you are looking at buying one. (Mag Vol.32#3)
  20. I still got mine, I know I need to upgrade to 4k soon, but apart from this possible minor issue (In my opinion) their is nothing wrong with it.
  21. Yes, see below link https://www.jbhifi.com.au/panasonic/panasonic-th-55fz950u-55-4k-uhd-smart-oled-tv/322382/ or https://www.panasonic.com/au/consumer/televisions/oled-tvs/th-55fz950u.html
  22. Looking forward to see what the street price will be on the 9400, as if its only a minor upgrade over the 9300 (Still a major upgrade over my 9000) it might be worth looking at second hand JVCs in the new year.
