  1. This is relative to other massive pre pros with its 2ru height but the Acurus muses anodised black satin fascia and multi coloured display is pretty unique And why cant other pre pros have a classy easy to read white back panel ๐Ÿ˜
  2. How new tech can upset the status quo over time
  3. Thats a shock to the system Al ; the sort of pricing that makes something like a Epson with lumens+ or a hdmi2.0 projector already in situ and a Lumagen's top notch DTM look feasible to anyone in the market while gaining better deinterlacing scaling etc ๐Ÿ‘Œ1500 lumens doesnt really cut it for hdr so much ..
  4. Yes Al ;salesman says Ive got its new replacement ; improved model and its the same price sir Ime too cynical or they should have upgraded their website maybe ๐Ÿ˜‰ That video sounds good ; the new X1 processor chip in the 290 should do a great job with any hdr10 ; and it looks like it can handle scene by scene hdr10+ material too ;sweet . Some nice contrast compared to the 270 ; he enjoyed playing wipeout at 60 frames didnt he . That lamp replacement module and cover is an ingenious design ; me likey ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  5. With the new improved 790es released they really should take a look at a few things with the 760es's rrp price ; it doesnt compute will smith Sony VPL-VW790ES 4K Projector (Black) (audiotrends.com.au) Sony VPL-VW760ES โ€“ Audio Connection
  6. When you mentioned the leaking to be louder to the sides and running atmos enabled speakers on your L/R I thought of checking your bass management crossover settings . That hiss or crack may be a dsp processing glitch ; Emotiva and other brands have been known to almost fry a tweeter with certain decoding like dts in the distant past .. good its only subtle Hopefully its something like the calibration
  7. I would take a look at the new Anthem range with the entry level 540 as it has added an extra 2 channels to the older 520 and with your MFs H/T bypass it would fit perfectly with its amp reassignment and 7.1 pre outs Its upgraded well thought off arc genesis has a decent calibrated microphone [ no hockey puck] and they have dropped dts playfi for better apps like roon [ keep an eye out for thoughts on these] . With this also there is no second guessing every year about new models as Anthem had these in development for years.. Anthemยฎ | MRX 540 | Overview (anthemav.com
  8. You wouldnt credit this snoopy but having just unpacked my Acurus Muse what do I find but another 650 remote only this one has the words "logi" up the top - the "tech'' has been eradicated /air brushed out A stroke of luck for a change โ˜บ๏ธ
  9. David Gates and Bread from the goodbye girl
  10. Its all relative Snoopy ; they had to do something about ARC in a hurry as most expected it to be available out the box [and it was still anthem genesis] . But maybe caught out reprogramming the '"new next generation multi-core DSP'' Similar thing happened with emotiva ; dirac programmed the new dirac2.0 for TI chipsets and Emo had to add a dongle to get it to communicate with their no longer TI chipset from the last generation .. After much toeing and froing with the Anthem release I went with Acurus as there were too many +;s for my particular system [ and I have some other
  11. The new extra dual chip dsp horsepower in the 70 has improved the ARC frequency response flatness xplayrzx . Oseas comments have been equally impressed . Didnt take long for the ARC beta to be passed to recommended ; hope the other niggles are dealt with faster than those Arcam derivatives Will you be upgrading to the hdmi2.1 card when it turns up ?
  12. Thats exactly where I went for other dynaudio measurements with similar peaky treble FR on this review ; Dynaudio X14 Speaker Review | Audio Science Review (ASR) Forum Amirs solution ? A narrow band peq around the crossover point . Which raises the question of changing the intent of the speaker designer -another quandary well hashed already .. I like the fact that he uses the very latest equipment -Near Field Scanner System (NFS) (klippel.de) ; at least hard to equate what he says with others with sales to make I like to think
  13. Sounds similar to the firmware upgrade procedure for Emo pre pro's AL ; unplug the hdmi's or it may stuff up the dsp processor with its 5v trace ๐Ÿ˜‰ and considering how incompatible hdcp 2.0 and hdcp1.4 components can be when they shouldnt One things for sure its more subtle with less reverb ; steering and phasing than others as its been around a long time . One reason is its proprietary and Anthem doesnt pay licensing fees with it ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  14. A good excuse to mention the inspirational ' youll'e never walk alone " from the classic movie Carousel and the red devils of course..
  15. "Sunken into a table by the BBC '' -accurate and a good move ๐Ÿ˜œ Why does it remind me of this ???
