    HDMI (lesson learned)!

    Well I don't know what planet you live on, but the one I live on deals with facts, at the end of the day your opinion and your colleagues opinions are on one side of this argument regardless of how long you've been in the industry. The other side refutes your argument. It's pointless having ago at me when I didn't write the reviews did I, but I will still recommend people checkout the info for themselves because there getting ripped off if they pay high end prices when they don't need to. End of story!
  2. Keen to get peoples views on this Marantz especially for a music.

    It was my experience and as mentioned there is plenty of information regarding this topic out there. Cnet.com which I believe to be a credible source cover it in great detail and as a result of the information I took on board fixed my issue. I'm always learning and more than happy to be enlightened.

    Thanks Rawl, very interesting though I guess there's an argument for and against. It was definitely an exercise worth noting. Cheers!

    I can't fault them, don't know why some run them down must be a Ford & Holden thing. Plenty of style though that's what caught my eye. I'm happy with the ones I got at the moment, just need to juice up my AVR now.

    Optimum performance or thereabouts!

    Thanks for the advice I'll give it a go Cheers
  8. G'day, I just recently upgraded my old TV when it passed away to new Hisense UHD, that then set off a chain reaction. I ended up buying new a Panasonic BDUHD a Marantz slimline AVR a pair of Klipsch's R- 28F's the Klipsch R- 12SW subwoofer and I'll be picking up my Klipsch RP- 450c centre speaker on Wednesday. I have this system in my 5 x 2 living room which is full of furniture and a slate floor and my lounge is about 2.5 meters from the system. I've read a few post's regarding people's wanting advice about setting up there systems and could see there's some pretty switched on people here, so here I am looking to get some help getting the optimum setup for my room. My main use is music 90% and movies/TV 10%. I use my surrounds as fronts when I'm playing music using Dolby Pro Logic ll and switch to 5.1 when watching flick's. My AVR is a Marantz NR1508 with 50 wpc output, I used Audyssey for the speaker set up I think I got that part right but then I kind of played around with other settings, actually I had no idea what I was doing, +/- db, hz/khz is all chinese to me. I sought to adjust bass on my front's prior to getting the Klipsch's and gave up after I couldn't find it in the settings of the AVR, so I left it as is. The terminology is what does my head in but I'm learning little bit's each day. I'd like to make sure I have the whole system functioning at it's best when I hook up the Klipsch centre. My sub is set as per instructions but considering the woofers on the towers add the bass I'm not sure if I need to back the sub off a wee bit, the bass sounds fine to me the mid and treble sound fine to me. But I have no idea how to set the crossover and I would like to make sure it's set correctly. Thanks for your patience reading this and would be grateful for any advice. Cheers

    Mate back in the day you could count brand's with your fingers and a couple of toes! I've been upgrading my system for a couple of months now and when It came to looking at speakers I couldn't believe the number of manufactures we now can access! Alot I found to be high end. Just get on google and type in top ten towers or whatever for 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018 that should point ya in the right direction. Bang for buck though Klipsch's R Series would be hard to pass! good luck!

    In need of some opinions on 55" TVs

    Not in there class of panels, Hisense blitzed the Samsung 8000 series one review gave the P7, 5 out of 5, (PC World) other reviews just as favourable. And the Hisense is cheaper again! This is my second Hisense and I reckon there definitely the best in there class for bang for buck!
