  1. Im going to say this . . .not in jest . . . but because i i have had similar problems in the past with the same panasonic player. Turn the power off to everything at the wall and turn it back on. I had problems with HDMI handshaking with the xbox (which i got rid of) where i would have to do a hard power reset for sound to come back through my preamp after having used the xbox. Im not at home right now but later i will have a look at my settings as i run the hdmi direct to the projector and sound to the Pre. What projector are u using by the way. Do you need to go to a specific setting for 4k.
  2. light control light control light control We cant emphasize enough that you need light control A screen is also very helpful
  3. I tried consoles . . . .hated the controller . . . nowhere near as accurate as keyboard and mouse . . . . . give me a pc anyday
  4. Try Oz Theatre Screens. Think he is an advertiser here. I have always got the genuine JVC globe assemblies from him for my x7000
  5. 119 db is pretty damn loud. I also understand that once you reach 120db your likely to start experiencing hearing damage. is your level of 119db a theoretical or mesaured figure.
  6. my pre amp is still using HDMI 1.4 uhd player splits the 4k signal out and that goes direct to my projector. The only thing i have ever had a lip sync issue on is a FTA decoder box. Never had an issue with lip sync on a blueray, uhd netflix or amazon prime.
  7. very carefully. . . . . just do light sprays and a number of coats
  8. 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.
  9. @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.
  10. The automation problems are most likely less of a problem than you think. Get it setup right and you wont even notice them
  11. 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.
  12. 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)
  13. 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
