  1. It makes a huge difference in setting the crossover point.
  2. Yes you can use 4 of the 5 channels to Bi Amp a pair of speakers as long as the speakers have two sets of terminals. No problem. PS. "mono block" is not a relevant term in this scenario. Just re-read it and NO, please don't connect two amplifiers to one set of speaker terminals. That is not safe.
  3. No need. Just make the rig sound as good as you can for the room. Also, please, don't ever tweak the rig while a DJ is playing, it can be really distracting and disconcerting.
  4. You can always test with a phone or mp3 player and a minijack to rca cable. Just make sure the volume on the source is all the way down to start with and ease it on gently. Pre outs = volume controlled output Tape Outs = full volume, all the time output.
  5. Have Monitor Audio Silver 8s as per my sig. It's my second set. I regretted selling my RS8s so much I had to buy another pair. These are genuinely one of the best alround speakers on the market IMO. They can do full on rock, metal and dance music with ease but also have the refinement and air in the tweeter to render jazz trios with intimacy and realism. I will be upgrading the front end components for years with no desire to change speakers whatsoever. They just keep getting better. I can't wait to hear them once I can afford a tube pre.
  6. Audyssey gets the distance and level for subwoofers wrong without fail. It always sets the level too low and the distance too close. Minor tweaks to these two parameters will yield dramatic improvements.
  7. As others have noted, putting the sub where you sit and then finding the best place in the room, then swapping is a good trick. Personally, i've found you can do all the maths you want and the best DSP systems I've tried still get it wrong, every time. I tune the time alignment by ear. You can literally hear the bass go in and out of focus once you understand what to listen for.
  8. You are quite correct. It took probably 5 years for them to come anywhere near the picture quality they delivered on their top of the range CRT "Aconda" which was absolutely jaw dropping. A lot of people went off the brand in that time and their return to form took too long, which left them often using raw panels that were 2,3 or even 4 generations older than the offerings from the Japanese brands. They also had some major reliability issues in that era.
  9. They did lose their way for a little while in the early flat panels and their 42" 720p plasma was just dismal with all major Japanese manufacturer's offerings easily outperforming it. They then got their act together and started producing amazing LCD flatpanels with Feznel glass fronts and steel styling and their intelligent frame creation technology was class leading.
  10. Instructions unclear: Cat is on fire Kitchen is now flooded 15W40 stains still in frypan
  11. You don't know until you try. We used to try all sorts of things to isolate turntables from vibrations when dealing with 20,000 watts of bass in a venue. Sometimes a concrete paving slab was all that was needed, sometimes some low quality granite off-cuts from a headstone maker would make the world of difference. Tennis balls cut in half did NOT work.
  12. Have you tried a simple piece of granite under the CD player?
  13. Sad to hear. It was amazing what German software could do to a Sharp LCD panel. The difference was night and day.
  14. Those MSR remotes use Philips IR4 or IR5 standard codes if I remember correctly.
