  1. I have a pair of the original Vaf DC-X which are bi-amping capable and is rated at 100-200W RMS? I just got a Pioneer VSX-930 which I'm not using the extra channels for, and am thinking of bi-amping the speakers. The amp are rated at 170W per channel. I have already bought the speaker cables, but am wondering 2 things: 1. Will I run a higher risk of damaging the speaker or amp by bi-amping them? I can have the tendency to turn up the volume sometimes. 2. Will I really hear the difference? If not, I may not bother pulling things apart. Cheers
  2. Item: Denon AVR-3805 Black Receiver Location: Perth Price: $290 Item Condition: Immaculate Reason for selling: Upgraded to Dual HDMI out with 4K Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This home theatre receiver needs no introduction. Great amp that is Made in Japan (most new ones are China or Vietnam). Unfortunately I had to upgrade (more like downgrade) to a new receiver as I need dual HDMI output. My new receiver doesn't sound anywhere as good as this Denon Pictures:
  3. if say I have a 720P LCD TV and a 1080P projector - I want to hook both up to both Xbox 360 and PS3 using HDMI and 1080P setting. Is there any receiver (or any other device) that can downscale the 1080P HDMI signal to either 720P HDMI or Component?

  5. By the replies, it looks like I will do the Video Essentials way - was hoping on being lazy and do an easier way. Thanks for the places on where to buy - Devoted's site says out of stock, but I got a friend to get that last one from JB Malaga.
  6. I know there are benefits to a much more intensive calibration for my Sony VPL-HW10. But at the moment, I just don't have the time or patience for it. I simply want to adjust the brightness and contrast so that it is "near enough is good enough". I have the projector connected to Xbox 360 and PS3. Ideally, without having to buy anything, any recommendation on a source that I can adjust contrast and brightness to? Otherwise, is Video Essentials HD (BD) the one to buy? And if so, would anyone know of anywhere in Perth that has one in stcok as most online places lists it as out of stock.

    I have; Denon AVR-3805 (pre HDMI) that does everything else I need it to, except HDMI switching LG LCD TV (takes HDMI) - behind motorised screen Sony VPL-HW10 1080p Projector - new addition that takes HDMI Xbox 360 (HDMI capable, but AFAIK, Audio in only through optical) Wii (component and analog audio only) Future PS3 for Blu-ray Looking at the price of the AVR-3808 and 4308 is making me sick! So I would consider the Sony Receivers (5400ES most likely as it has dual HDMI output). BUT! If I can possibly get away from it, I would prefer to keep my current setup and use some sort of HDMI switcher. The problems are; 1 - Is there a switcher that will do 4 HDMI IN 2 OUT ? 2 - One that is highly reliable and accepts Infra Red signal Is it worth trying to cheap out? Or should I just get a new receiver that will handle up and down conversion making life much easier?
  8. I don't suppose you investigated their best price for the 5400ES? As I would prefer 2 HDMI outs and more power
  9. I have a Sony STRDB930 and a Denon 3805 (Black) which are both in Mint conditions. What would they be worth in the second hand market these days? I am also looking at either the Sony STRDA54000ES, STRDA5300ES, Denon 3808, or Denon 4308 - does anyone know what sort of best street price I should aim for?
  10. What screens are you guys using with this? I have just placed my order and will now have to look for a screen. I am looking for; - 108-120 inch 16:9 - Motorised with ideally IR remote. - Cheapish ($600-$1000), as long as the edges don't curl - Ideally with a good 500mm top black edge. Any recommendation? The Redleaf one looks OK, but it doesn't have remote?!
  11. HN was $1099, marked down to $979. Bargained down to $899 - refused to go lower. Good Guys was $880. Both had stock and both in Osborne Park.
  12. It is 1month to Xmas, where the hell is everyone's sense of humour, notice the LOL (means lots of laughs)??? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Cool, sorry I missed the "LOL". Working in retail means Xmas is not full of humour until 6pm on the eve. Quite the opposite really. Actually, I did have my coffee machine hooked up to a remote control.
  13. OK, thanks for the comments (except the one about brewing coffee). I guess I will just buy it from HN and try it for more than the casual 3 minutes glance. As for satellite & terrestrial in one, I really don't think any manufacturer can ever be bothered. Us DTV folks are already a rare bunch, and FTA satellite would be even more so. Has anyone managed better than $900 in Perth for the 120gb version?
  14. Could it be something to do with "Fast Reply"? I was replying to http://www.dtvforum.info/index.php?showtop...&st=0&p=118100&
