  1. Sub takes a mono signal and the line level signal shouldn't degrade much if at all when split.
  2. 5.3.4 Setup: TV - Sony KD75X9000F Source - Panasonic DP-UB820 Receiver - Marantz SR7010 Amplifier - Rotel RMB-1075 Front L/R - Bowers & Wilkins DM604 S1 Centre - Bowers & Wilkins DM601 S1 Surround L/R - Bowers & Wilkins DM604 S1 Subwoofers - 3 x Jensen X-165 Top FL/FR/RL/RR - Sonance VP62R
  3. Ended up getting a Panasonic DP-UB820 and now both Dolby Vision and Atmos works on Amazon Prime.
  4. I've been trying for a few days to install the Amazon Prime video app from Samsung smart hub on my Samsung 4K K8500 but it keeps coming up with a blank download screen and when I click download I just get error 300. Has anyone else had this problem before? Really keen to try 4K streaming as I've just signed up for the prime service.

  6. Ah I see, all good I don't have pre-amp settings on my Marantz, I just plug in the RCAs calibrate as normal and the signal goes via that rather than the receiver's binding posts.
  7. My recommendation though would be to use the LX71 to power amp the overheads (keeps the sound signature/levels consistent) and frees up overall power for the LX901 to internally amplify the bed channels as was suggested earlier. The internal circuitry will be different and you want the higher quality pre-amp/power-amp sections for the bed channels as that is where most of the detail will be for movies. You might lose the ability to biamp but the increase in quality will be worth using the newer LX901 to process the bed channels over an older receiver's amplifier section. Otherwise a dedicated power amp might be the route you want to look at if you feel you are lacking power in the fronts.
  8. Hey@agrif78 if you're using the old receiver to biamp I don't see an issue with setting the LX901 to regular 5.1.4. Bi-amping should be signal agnostic (I.e. the power amp doesn't care where the signal comes from, it will take one input signal and it will just send identical signals to both amps). As long as you're sending the front L/R RCA pre-out from the LX901 to the LX71 front L/R RCA inputs then setting the LX71 to biamp the front L/R signal via the front (make sure these go to the LF binding posts) and surround back (these go to the HF binding posts) you should be biamping the unamplified front L/R signal from the LX901. I think the LX71 also takes a 12v trigger input as well so you can have the LX901 turn on the LX71. Volume control should be on the LX901.
  9. Where is this in Saigon? I'm going there next year and would love to see this shop.
  10. Good Evening y'all, Little background before I introduce my ghetto theatre. Been browsing SNA here for a while and even went to my first Stereo Net hifi show this year. I got into home theatre about 2 and a half years ago, since then I've been reading and learning more and more each day. Condensing years of surround sound developments into the evolution of my system. Only heard about Dolby Atmos halfway into my journey and was instantly hooked on 3D sound. I wanted, nay, I needed it. Which brings me to today. I finally did it, not the most ideal arrangement (being in a rental and all) but I did it!!! I'm so happy with how it turned out. Movies are extra immersive, Game of Thrones is off the charts theatrical and everything is just a treat to consume. I'm putting this out there for the naysayers and non-beleivers, Atmos is such a good investment. (If you have the space/permission to) I'm smiling ear to ear (DTS: X is great too). My system is a 7.3.4 and is as follows: - Source: Samsung UBD K8500 - AVR: Marantz SR7010 - Power AMP: Rotel RMB-1075 - Front L/R: Bowers & Wilkins DM604 - Centre: Bowers & Wilkins CC6 - Surround L/R: Bowers & Wilkins DM604 - Surround Back L/R: Bowers & Wilkins DM601 - Top FL/FR/RL/RR: Sonance VP62R - Subwoofers: 3 x Jensen X-165 Calibrated with Audyssey and it got the measurements pretty close, maybe off by 3cm at most, manually adjusted and all is well. I've also ordered a calibrated U-MIK1 and going to run some tests with REW, keen to see how everything performs. Before this I had only experienced Logitech speakers and was gleefully ignorant. After much research I waited for the right gear to equip my system and these were all my first choices. Next upgrades will be a projector and screen, I was really impressed by the Optoma branded projectors but everyone here seems to advocate for JVC, so not sure which way to go yet. Eventually will swap out the subwoofers for what is most likely going to be 2 x SVS PB2000s.
  11. 1+ to unreliable ARC, tried forever to get it to working with my TCL TV and Pioneer/Marantz receivers. Tried changing every setting resetting everything to factory. Could never get it working. Ended up just using optical as suggested by@buffyslayer.
