  1. Im also interested in getting some actuators . . . but just not sure how i would be able to set them up as i am already using all 7 pr-out channels to speakers and the 2 LFE channels are being used. 1 of them to my sub 1 and the other split to 2 smaller subs.
  2. @zxSwifty I recently got th Fiio Q5s headphone dac and amp. i also listen pretty much exclusively to dance music and its not in lossless format. My headphones are not up to the standard of the focals (sony mx1000 mk2) but im loving the sound with the combo. a hell of a lot better than my previous setup. It also has the bluteooth capeabilities of the BTR5.
  3. The automation problems are most likely less of a problem than you think. Get it setup right and you wont even notice them
  4. get it calibrated and use whatever setting the calibrator sets up for you. His setting should take into account both the tv and bluray settings.
  5. I picked up a fiio Q5S a couple of weeks ago and i have to say its a really really nice sound with that DAC. I'm now finding any excuse to use my headphones. and bear in mind my source is not lossless audio. Using sony MX-1000 cans (not quite up to the level of what your contemplating)
  6. I guess the first thing you probably need to ask yourself is . . . . do you like the sound that comes out of the vintage 3 ways by themselves. If so maybe you should consider a setup where you run the 3 ways only for 2 channel music via a seperate integrated amp. I would think (and im sure others will correct me if i am wrong) that you are going to get a different sound out of the vintage speakers to what you get out of the Dali's and the interaction between the 2 means you are probably not getting the best out of either of them. So first question is (from my perspective). Sound quality or sound volume. Try turning off the vintage and listening for a while . . . then turn off the dali's and listen for a while. See what you like better and then go form there
  7. i use one of these to run my paradigms s8's . . . . . its a beast of an amp
  8. Been watching Treadstone on Amazon. Good action . . . storyline follows on from the bourne series. Pity theres only 10 episodes to season 1 . . . .binged it it 2 days
  9. i thoroughly enjoyed seasons 1-4 of gotham . . .look forward to hitting s5. Im onto supernatural right now . . . .on season 4
  10. fair call . . . . . i thought cavill did a great job of emulating the character out ofthe game and books
  11. There was alot of back story going on and different timelines mixed through season 1. If you havnt read the books or played the game i can see how you could easily be confused and find it dead booring.
  12. most room correction software will also tell you if a speaker is out of phase
  13. i really dont think you will be dissapointed with the XMC-2. think of it as much more future proof than the 1.
  14. I know everyone has their preferences and for me . . . .a good quality centre, tonally matched to your l and r channels makes a massive difference in my setup. I have tried with and without and will take a centre channel any days of the week over a no centre. Try it and see what you prefer . . . . theyre your ears and your room afterall
