  1. Hi Steve, sent a message re the Oasis 7.
  2. Hi Chris, where in Melbourne are you? I was wondering if a pick up could be arranged in the Eastern Suburbs.
  3. Hi, I’ve got a 93 that I use with VDH The Flat Hdmi as on the 93 HDMI is the best sound transfer. How do your mods affect sound - do you run hdmi or rca and why? Any paperwork on the mods you can share? Thanks
  4. Sorry for the newbie question, what cable is required to hook it up to my amp? Would my Marantz AVR6005 work as a DAC and amplifier?
  5. Great machine, one that I’d love to upgrade to. Now, where to find the coin...
  6. Great advice their CGT. I really don’t hit the movies that often, so I’m trying to find the right musical balance. I’ve loved playing around with things these last few weeks and I think I’ve tinkered to get it just right. Now I’ve really reflected, my listening is often more just background or around the house. I don’t really dedicate time to sit and listen, but when I occasionally do, at an easy level when the kids are in bed I really enjoy it. Having said all that, my subs are up for sale and I am looking towards a Polk, or possibly a smaller SVS that hits the low 20s. I have memories of my old 10” Boston Acoustics Pro Sub in the car that was astounding. I’ve realised that what I was chasing (those memories) is a completely different sound - something compressed in a small space that allowed you to really feel it as opposed to a larger, tiled and minimal curtained family room where the sounds bounce a whole lot more. Now I just want to enjoy the music and hear that full rich sound. And yep, when the movies are on you turn up the sub and let them do their thing!
  7. Item: 2 x Canton Your_Sub 600 Wireless subwoofers Location: Lilydale to Box Hill (Melbourne) Price: $525, $25 will go as a Stereo Net donation Item Condition: Excellent - 8/10 as they have been used Reason for selling: Upgrading, trying to de-wireless my house Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Canton Wireless Subs, run off a single Canton Your_stick They are sold as a pair, running off a single wireless receiver plugged directly to your amp or sw output from the source. This needs a USB power source, I can throw in a cube style USB/Power point wall plug. I believe they are simply a slightly less powerful, wireless version of the SUB 600 which is the spec sheet below. In gloss white, they can seamlessly blend into the room. As a pair they provide all the bass you need, yet are subtle enough to not be picked up by ear. Perfect for apartments, renters or situations where running wires is limited. Purchased new, I’ve had them for about 18 months. More than happy for a pick up in either Lilydale or Box Hill, or can negotiate delivery to you in surrounding suburbs. - Downward firing - 100 to 150 Watts - 30 to 200hz range, adjustable crossover from 50hz - Three modes of room compensation - Phase adjustable These specs are for the SUB 600 - Mine are a wireless connection. Canton had limited specs on their site.
  8. Strange ay I’ll check on the speakers. I think they are set to large, but it could be small. I noticed when I set the bass setting to main + LFE it gave me the option to set a higher limit for the LFE, which after my reading made sense, as it’s the dedicated channel. Apparently LFE is as high as 120, so setting it too low can lose you a little of the oomph and power in movie watching. I wonder if I’ll notice the difference the next time I watch a movie.
  9. Hey Tiz, I read a little more about crossover roll off - where there is still signal being sent below the crossover, but it weakens as it goes down the spectrum. Essentially a 60hz crossover still allows frequencies as low as 30hz to filter through to the speakers, but at a much lower level. I think it halves the dB each octave. For the sub, it is strongest below 60hz, but still gets frequencies as high as 90hz again at much weaker levels. I’ve now set my fronts at 60hz. This is taking pressure off the sub bass range of the speakers, but also lets the lower spectrum filter through as the speakers are designed to be much clearer than the sub. I still get nearly the full speaker range. The sub handles all below 60, and adds minimal boost to up to 90hz. It does all of the hard work. I also researched and found I can set main plus LFE. LFE is all he .1 channel for surround/movies. This means that for music, my filter is 60hz, for movies I’ve now set it to 100hz - sending all the big hitting sounds to the subs. Always more to learn - it’s very interesting once you start reading more and more...
  10. That is a good point. I guess I pride the SLs on there quality, and want to run them for the full range. I might have to play at setting the cross over at 60hz, but drop the dB and see how that sounds. I’m aiming for that subtle blend. I’m glad you also found more of a sweet point with your sub. It;s amazing what a seemingly little change can make. As people have said, the experimentations are endless! Enjoy those tracks and let me know. Cheers
  11. Hey Barn, I did a little experimenting with low frequencies from another forum and this is what I found: https://www.harbeth.co.uk/usergroup/forum/the-harbeth-line-up-m20-m30-m40-1-p3esr-c7es3-shl5/can-t-decide-which-harbeth-is-right-for-you/1659-bass-response-how-deep-should-my-speakers-go-for-a-lifelike-sound-at-home As I wanted to pick up what the subs were doing, I left my cross over at 40hz., so only 40hz and lower were coming from the subs. At moderate listening levels there was just a little difference between clip one and five, with the different filters on. My real interest was lower in the forum where he did 30-40hz, and then sub 30 only. That’s where it got interesting. At my speakers with the cross over off and the music set for 30 - 40hz I was getting some of the bass hum through the speakers with subs physically off, and with the same clip there was the same response from the subs - set at usual listening levels and the 40hz crossover back on. With the filter at only sub 30hz sounds I was getting a slight response from the subs, so they are either just quietly humming away, or they do get some response below the specs. When I switched back to full range speakers, the hum I heard was very similar, so my speakers are putting out below the 33hz that the specs say, as is the sub. Did the actual bass make much difference to the music, yes but only subtle. What does this mean? I’ve switched the speakers back to full range, and left the LFE setting for the bass to LFE only, so it will kick in for the 5% of the time that I watch movies. I’ll occasionally switch it for the heavier music. Of course, I lose control of ramping up the bass with no sub volume control, so that is something I might have to play with later.
  12. So, the above link was very interesting. I had a good listen and experimented around with the woofers on, and woofers off. As I wanted to pick up what the subs were doing, I left my cross over at 40hz., so only 40hz and lower were coming from the subs. At moderate listening levels there was just a little difference between clip one and five, with the different filters on.

  13. Yup, that’s the one, Friday night itis has started in. I’m considering the 440 or 550. I don’t quite have the space for the big boy, and the others look like they are rated 25 and 20 respectivly. I haven’t looked that the yamaha yet. Thanks for the tip - I might need to widen my perspective. I am going to do some relistening without the sub over the weekend, to see what I think and hear.
  14. Hey tiz, this was a very interesting read. I haven’t the chance to try out the clips, but if your running a computer through your system this might help your thoughts out - what we actually hear and what we think we hear. It would be interesting to try out, I might run the iPad through the amp tomorrow and see what happens! https://www.harbeth.co.uk/usergroup/forum/the-harbeth-line-up-m20-m30-m40-1-p3esr-c7es3-shl5/can-t-decide-which-harbeth-is-right-for-you/1659-bass-response-how-deep-should-my-speakers-go-for-a-lifelike-sound-at-home
  15. I will tiz, I’m leaning towards a Polk Audio DWR 440, or the 550. I can potentially pick one up at $450 and $700 respectively. Then in my next thought, I lean towards upgrading the Oppo... So much fun to be had!
