  1. So im trying to figure out if this update applies to my x7000 I cant seem to find anything to correlate the model number of the DLA-RS1000, DLA-RS2000, DLA- RS3000 to our model numbers. It could be because they dont?
  2. I figure i will go with one that is both 8 and 4 ohm capable . . . i cant see it being 2 ohm
  3. im looking at the option of using a Crown Lxi 1500 amp to power the sub in my def tech tower (BP7004) which has had an amp failure. I could get a new amp module but thats in excess of $800 and they never actually fixed the issue. It's only a matter of time before the second tower has a similar amp issue - Its a known common issue apparently. The problem i have is determining what impedance the sub runs at . . . i haven't been able to find anything on the net to tell me. The speaker itself runs nominally at 8 ohm. I'm assuming there's some way for me to measure it from the the s
  4. i would suggest that if you want to be playing things at that level, you should be looking looking at a diffrent setup. A pre-pro setup with a decent amp. The amps in that avr are babies compared to a poweramp and you were driving them to max levels. Your actually quite lucky you didnt destroy your speakers at the same time. Im pretty sure they would have been clipping at that level. AVR's are really not designed for that kind of load. are they 8 ohm speakers or 4 ohm. alot of avr's are not capeable of powering 4 ohm speakers either.
  5. the 10m comsol cable from office works at $70 is known by many on here to work perfectly with 4k. i use it myself https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/comsol-high-speed-hdmi-cable-with-ethernet-10m-cohdmi100 they also have a money back guarantee if it is unsuitable. You don't need to spend a fortune on a fibre optic cable.
  6. change the tv output setting to stereo
  7. i have had a similar issues this last week with a show on netflix, but only through one particular speaker. the left surround. never had it any other time. i stopped watching that particular serties
  8. I have a pair of S8 v2 that i picked up second hand a few years back. I will take those things to the grave with me . . . absolutely no-one is getting those babies
  9. thats what i do with my front of house tv. works a treat, no lag issues
  10. why not just use the streaming provider from your oppo or other blueray player and let the sound go through your avr. its much simpler.
  11. one of the other massive advantages to a projector that people never talk about is that with a tv . . doesnt matter what sort it is . . you get the blue light which causes sleep issues (it tricks your brain into thinking its day time). The reflected image off a projector screen i founds, doesnt have that affect at all. It really does not make sense to drop down to 85 inch from 110. 110 inch has a viewing size of 3.0688 square Meters 85 inch has a viewing size of 2.1808 square meters. going from 110 to 85 is a drop in screen size of 28.94%
  12. bloody nightmare sometimes. . . i had seriously gone through about 6 different programs and media players to get it working and it turns out it was the streamer itself. . . .all sorted now though. I just need to work out volume control but thats a different fight
  13. That did the trick . . . . thank you so much . . . i was about to tear out the last 10 strands of hair i have left
  14. Downloaded vlc. Finds my streamer no problem. Playback, Renderer. select "Stef Streamer" and nothing, zip nada. go to my phone and works just fine. Have tried disabling the firewall. no difference
  15. I was unsuccessful using the chromecast within the chrome browser but will give vlc a try tonight. thankyou
  16. The system is the cambridge CXN V2 streamer which is wired into the network and is chromecast supported. The laptop i have tried on wireless and wired. I can stream from my android device with no issues. This is a new thing for me to stream from my laptop. i now work from home 50% so its good to have control without having to have to leave the chair at my workstation.
  17. Thats what i read . . . but im trying to push music . . . so it needs to come from some sort of media player? And im trying to push lossless as well.
  18. Has anyone managed to do this. I cant get it to work from my laptop. it works from my android phone no problem via the built-in chromecast. I am at my wits end trying to get music to play on The system from my laptop Any help appreciated
  19. ive never heard a bad word said about the elektra amps . . . i dont think you can go wrong with them.
  20. if your going to get one with 9.2 you may as well get 11.2 and give yourself the option of atmos
  21. as far as i know . . . your outu luck. If your receiver can only do 7.1 then thats all you can do really. If you want to use the zone 2 pre-outs you will need to get a power-amp
  22. I think its more a case of they release them too early . . . before the bugs are sorted. Having said that, the only issue i have ever had with mine was a hdmi handshake issue with a couple of pieces of equiptment
