  1. Spoke to him, he's not a huge Kenwood fan. Anyone else have anything?
  2. Item: 70s or 80s power amp with some grunt Price Range: negotiable Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: a friend of mines hafler 500 completely went up in smoke and he needs something to pair with his hafler pre amp. something with around the same wattage yamaha p2200 or p 2201 would work. Another hafler or an Ashly from the 90s even. let me know what you have Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  3. My avr is having issues with my htpc and I cannot work out what it is. I have tried different graphics cards. It happens on bootup, the changes in resolution I'm pretty sure. Blu-ray players and chromecast works fine. I'm wondering if changing operating systems will fix this. I just really don't want to use Windows if I can help it. Currently running libreelec as an operating system for Kodi on my htpc. And it does everything I want it to, apart from dsd over hdmi. Though I don't think that will ever work from a pc. I could be and hope I am wrong but it's looking that way
  4. Yeah even my cousin uses a rel sub with his Krix epicentrix centre speaker and that's even beefier than the Aaron 240 It definitely rounds out the sound. The missions are a 2.5 way, I can't remember the model but they are floorstanders.. I think even the pair of accusound floorstanders I have might win over the missions. I always found voices higher pitched with the accusounds.. that could be my hearing or apparently self medication can make you hear things a tone or two below or above what it should be. Haha Anyway time to change avr. My hdmi board keeps messing up on me. Now what to get... I'm thinking a modular emotiva but I haven't heard them and not sure of anyone in Sydney who still stocks them..
  5. I won't say anything bad but I am not unhappy about that. Great tech. Not so great experience
  6. i thought zaph got banned? i had very very bad experiences with that man
  7. so im using a yamaha p1250 mono for the centre, and for each main speaker i have a yamaha p2200 doing a kind of bi-amping into each speaker.. i dont like to use the term bi-amping. on the p2200's there is a daisychain output on each channel, so i have one left channel xlr going into the left p2200, that is daisychained into the other channel in the p2200 and then i am outputing both channels as a mono signal into the four binding posts on the aarons, doing the same thing with the right speaker so 3 yamaha power amps, the p2200's are outputting about 600watts into 8ohm for each speaker and the p1250 is outputting about 180watt i think. but then again all the aarons are 6ohm so i cant work out the wattage. yeah i have ysed the room correction on the denon. the mic is so crappy. little piece of plastic. i have also used a decent berringer room correction mic plugged into my laptop with some software they use in recording studios to find dead spots in the room.
  8. ahhh not all subs are just for lfe... especially musical subs such as rel's my front two speakers go down to 28hz with the matching sub, they go down well below 20hz so i use a sub similar to the way rel's are setup and let my centre speaker go down that low also it makes a difference, mainly when watching live concerts and things like the voice, american idol ect.. i think the main problem is probably the rear speakers, they are just cheapish missions made in asia.. having full range rears might help, if i can get my hands on some more ats5's in the dark timber finish then that would probably round everything out
  9. for the television room (this setup) using aaron ats5's, (mains) aaron cc240 (centre) and aaron sub 120, a pair of mission somethings as rears. wharfedale sub for centre low end. for the price i paid for the wharfedale i think its a really nice musical sub. the aaron sub is really just for films as it is not very musical but can move some serious air. i am still using a pioneer kuro plasma.. i still have 3 left. i had 7 at one point, so it is just 1080p however would be nice if the pre/pro was compatible with 4k, not really too interested in atmos and dtsx but i dont mind if those features are there just incase. i will upgrade tv to 8k oled once the price comes down. budget is not a huge issue, i would like to keep it under 5k emotiva is looking nice as some of the new models are modular so i could add an 8k card when needed. there was a nice krell also. the room has an arched ceiling, somehow it sounds great though, was not built for audio in mind. giant rug covering 80% of the floor, i have a really nice room correction microphone at the studio i record music at, so i could give that a go too.
  10. so i have a denon 3808ci that i am running, i bypass the front two channels through an analog pre amp that i have and then i have that going into a stereo power amp the centre is connected to another power amp, single channel. the rears are being powered purely by the denon 3808ci. would it be worth upgrading to a newer avr or pre processor and then buy another stereo power amp for the rears? seems like the rear speakers sound abit thinner and weaker than the front three. the other idea i had was to have a dedicated sub for the low end of the rear speakers? i did add an extra sub into the mix allready for the low end of the centre channel .
