  1. I am biased as I am a big fan of Definitive Technology, but here are some anecdotes based on my experience. Over the years I have bought and sold gear, including many DT speakers. Not to make money or anything like that. Just comes naturally when you upgrade, move in a different direction, or see something you must have and buy etc. Most my sales are your typical sales, people make enquires, some audition, some buy ... etc. I sold a pair of DT Mythos STS and the bigger ST speakers about 3 years apart. With both sales, the buyer messages me a few hours after buying to tell me how
  2. Definitive Techology SuberCube 4000 Subwoofer High Performance 1200W Powered Subwoofer With 8" Woofer and Dual 8" Bass Radiators Hardly used, and in as new condition. Everything works perfectly. This is a little ripper of a sub. Small box, but huge power and bass. Comes with all original accessories and packaging Box and packaging Remote Spikes and rubber feet Manuals and instructions From website: Huge, accurate bass impact for movies and music from a compact enclosure, mea
  3. No, I mean having the speakers on the wall, but high up, rather than ear level, maybe 1.8m high. I know this is not ideal, but it seems I have to make the compromise. What would happen in an ideal world is the speakers sit at on the wall near ceiling, and when I watch a movie it comes down to ear level ... but that's just a dream. I like your idea of the speakers firing out the sides, but my comment would be if I have speakers on a stand where the sofa is, then surely I can just have surround speakers there instead? What would be the advantage?
  4. No. The room is still being reno'd, and won't likely to be complete for a few more months. At this stage, still getting info as to what I'm going to do. Have decided to keep the current layout, and have 5.1.2 with the surround speakers as height. Thanks
  5. That answers my question, and the answer seems to be no. I guess I could've asked it more concisely, but we got there. I'll have to stick with the 5.1.2 and try to work the surround speakers as best I can. Thanks
  6. I have read through the Dolby Atmos setup guide in post #2, and others. Butas I said 3.1.4 doesn't seem to be a config, and hence my question. I guess I'll have to do the setup and have a play around to see what's possible and what sounds best. Thanks for your help
  7. I'm still trying to get my head about the ceiling/TOP speaker. Presumably TOP MIDDLE is the overhead speakers roughly at the listening position. Is there a TOP REAR or TOP SURROUND option for the back ceiling speakers? Or should that the Height speakers?
  8. The spot before the fridge is the door, so can't put speaker there. Thanks to the naming convention, I think I can put my question more simply. In my proposed 5.1.2 system, the surround speakers will be to be surround height speakers. Is that ok? To have surround height speakers? Or would having top/ceiling speakers be a better choice? So 5.1.2 (with 2 surround height) or 3.1.4?
  9. Are front and rear heights referring to speakers in the ceiling? Or are they referring to wall mounted speakers which are mounted higher up? I've been told the ceiling speakers are the way to go, as the Atmos effects is well worth doing. It may not be obvious from the drawing, but if the room was turned that way, then the right hand side there is no wall, there is a pantry and fridge. So while the left surround can go on the wall at ear level, the right cannot. I have tried to capture in in these new drawings.
  10. I have had a read though and it has answered some of my questions. - Dolby now recommends having the surround speakers at the same height. - Atom speakers goes slightly in front of you. But this still leaves me with the same question. Do I have the surround speakers on the wall high up, which also means it's much narrower than the fronts. Or have ceiling speakers for the surrounds instead? Essentially turning it from 5.1.2 to 3.1.4. There are many different configs on the Dolby site, including 3.1.2, but not 3.1.4. I had thought about this, but this
  11. Hi Everyone, yet another help with HT speaker setup question. I am doing a reno which originally included a HT/Media room, but due to budget, that room will simply be a room at this stage. In the meantime I will be using the main living area for TV/Movies and would like to set it up as well as I can given the layout. Given the layout, I figure I can got for a 5.2.2 setup. I also understand from reading other threads that on wall speakers are generally desirable to in wall speakers. The front (LCR) is fine, so my question(s) relate to the surround and overhead spea
  12. The big amps, especially the big Parasound often develop a hum on the transformer. Unfortunately there's not much you can do short of replacing the transformer, but that is really big $$$. It sounds like your one is pretty good compared to others. If you can't hear the hum from you the listening position, then there is no issue
  13. Jamo 7.7 / D590 Speakers These are probably the most famous of the Jamo speakers. They made these for about 20 years before they stopped. Then they started making them again as a 50th anniversary edition. Still one of the best speakers Jamo ever made. Each speaker has a curved lute shape. 1 x 1" tweeter 2 x 5" mids 1 x 8" woofer (down firing underneath) These are the 'beech' finish, which is the lighter wood colour. In excellent condition other than some damage to the bottom of one of the plinths (see photo). I have taken
  14. I have a pair of famous vintage Jamo 7.2 / D590 speakers in beech wood finish. Let me know if you're interested
