  1. I have a B&W Signature 805 purchased in 2007 in the red bird's eye maple finish (I am the first owner). I'm feeeling the itch. I'm thinking of selling my Signature 805 before getting a replacement unit. Just thinking mind you. I'd like to get your thoughts on how much I should sell it for. Pls send me a PM. Thank you. It is the same unit as shown here: https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649451885-bampw-805-signature-birds-eye-red-w-stands/
  2. Hi there. Clarification required, each = each set of four, or one vibrapod unit.
  3. I'm waffling between the Proac Response DB1 and the Legend Kurre. My very first high-end speaker was the Proac Response 1S, purchased in 1992 and going strong in 2019. I 'upgraded' to the B&W Signature 805 in 2007. It didn't take long before the Response 1S ended back as my mains. I vaguely remember thinking that music just sounded more 'musical' on the Response 1S. The B&W has a long break in period. Perhaps I never gave it a fair go before replacing it back with with the Proacs. In the last 12 years, at fleeting moments I tell myself I should give the B&W's another go, but the thought of losing that Proac magic stayed me. --- After listening to the same speaker for 27 years, I'm feeling the itch. The natural upgrade is the Response DB1, but I'm curious about the Legend Kurre. I'm tempted to get both 😀 but my wife will be less than pleased with 4 pairs of speakers laying about. Ah what to do. First world problem, climb into my lap and make yourself comfortable.
  4. A mate already has cables pulled to the ceiling in his HT room for rear speaker placement, for a standard 5.1 setup. We plan to use the DAS CL6 speaker with the following specs: https://www.dasaudio.com/en/p/cl-6-2/ RMS Power Handling 40 W Peak Power Handling 160 W Frequency Range (-10 dB) 60 Hz-20 kHz Nominal Impedance 8 ohms On-axis Sensitivity 1 W / 1 m 90 dB SPL These speakers are normally used for restaurants, etc. Are commercial ceiling speakers good enough for HT rear speaker use?
  5. Noted. I thought that might be the case. I've seen clear markings on units from scanspeak for my proac and I was able to source replacements online. I cannot see marking on this unit.
  6. Can anyone aid in identifying the drivers in the Jamo 128. Here are images of the midbass driver. I will post the images of the mids and high drivers later. Thank you
  7. I have a 4m (length) x 4.5m (width) room. Distance from the seated position to the TV is roughly 2.5 - 3m. The AV receiver will likely be either the (1) Denon AVR-X3500H or (2) Marantz SR5013. They both produce 100w @ 8 ohm, (20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% 2ch Drive). I am unsure what the term '2ch Drive' refers to, do they only produce that power when driven 2 channels, less for all 7 channels? I am considering either the Legend Joey or Kurre for my mains. Kurlo or Kurlette for the sub. I am concerned that the Kurres will: (1) Lack current (as have been mentioned in other threads) with the AV amp (2) Introduce an overabundance of low end for my smallish room The concern with the Joey is that it will not get loud enough for home theater duties. Can anyone familiar with the Legends share your thoughts and advice, thank you.
