    Transmission line speakers?

    i have the ambassador slimline series (Ambassador 46SQTL) from adelaide speakers and went with the ribbon tweater. Also got the large 3 way centre with matching drivers. I purchased without auditioning and have never regretted it. They are nice and smooth on the mids with great tight low end bass extension and a nice top end without being bright. I have them on surround duties as i have paradigm s8's running mains duties now. No way i would give up these beauties though . . . . they rate well against speakers three times their price.

    AVR keeps switching to ARC.

    AVR keeps switching to ARC.

    No it wont. What what do you find more inconvenient . . . . adjusting volume with the avr remote . . .or playing around with the same remote to keep switching backwards and forwards between sources

    why not just turn off the arc . . . .run an optical cable from the tv to the avr for sound from tv

  12. im loving my xmc-1. Defenitely a big step up from the denon 3313 i had before. Pairs up really well with the xpa-dr2 poweramp for my paradigms

    External Amp for Front L&R 7.2.4 Setup

    given that the majority of the sound comes from the front stage in most HT applications. a decent 2 or 3 channel for the front three speakers would be an advantage over the internal amps . . . . as well as taking a lot of load off the internal amps in the AVR which will make it easier for it to drive the other channels. Take into account the following. The maximum capacity of the denon is 710W and at say 70% efficiency . . .thats about 500W across 9 channels which equates to just over 50W per channel . . . . all channels driven. Not going to matter so much for a standard 5.1 or 7.1 soundtrack as the rears etc are prescence speakers which dont have a high level of use all the time. For atmos however, as it uses positional audio, the full set of speakers are used alot more so you will begin to encounter the limitations of the AVR. Having a 2 channel poweramp for your mains brings you up to about 70W for the others and a 3 channel, a bit over 80w, while also giving you a more powerful front stage for when you do want to listen to music.
  14. i went with the "Don't Breed" option.
  15. was wondering that myself. wouldnt you have to start matching power levels from the seperate amps so you get the appropriate volume levels from the drivers which are on different amps. Also . . .. unless they are the same amps you would be getting different colourations with the different amps. I would think that would detract from the overall musical experience. (i am by no means an expert in this and have never bi-wired or bi-amped so feel free to ignore my internal monologue as the ravings of someone who has no idea what he is talking about.
