  2. ah yes, you are correct - it supports bi-wiring, not bi-amping - stupid of me....
  3. that is the question. I always have Bi-amped my Pioneer receiver to big old Klipsch speakers, whether it makes any audible improvements I'm not sure? But now I'm hooking up this https://www.intl.onkyo.com/downloads/product_info/pdf/tx-8390_euex_leaflet.pdf to these https://www.klipsch.com.au/products/rp-6000f-floorstanding-speaker - a 200w/ch classAB amp [I think] to 125w rated small floor standers. Perhaps bi-amping is unnecessary as the amp is rated well above the speakers??? Thanks in advance for your comments.
  4. I recently bought some Kef lsx speakers - they're a little more than your budget, but sound great [particularly if u add a sub] - they look fantastic, have all the latest wifi connections and only need power. Feed them a proper stream like Tidal and their price/performance ratio is the best I've heard.
  5. I purchased this on their initial pre-order. Stunning design and sound, well recommended.
  6. unfortunately most retailers don't have receivers hooked up for testing, but I'll prob use https://www.klipsch.com.au/products/rp-6000f-floorstanding-speaker along with https://www.klipsch.com.au/products/spl-150-subwoofer which should be enough to annoy the neighbours...:)
  7. thanks for all the positive comments and feedback. what a great forum! I probably will get this unit https://www.intl.onkyo.com/products/hi-fi_components/receivers/tx-8390/index.html as it ticks all the boxes for me - and Onkyo has multiple service centres around Melbourne which may be a plus [unlike Denon, marantz etc.] Networked receivers are the last dying fart of the receiver world I think. With [more expensive] boxes like NAD M10, Unity Atom and Powernode doing similar thinks but looking more sexy.
  8. thanks yeh I read about the HDMI mess. I think the warranty/servicing situation with the main brands is dodgy e.g. a few years ago i had a Marantz high end blu-ray player [that was complete rubbish] - kept failing/skipping - but to have it fixed, I had to drive nearly 2 hours to Mount Waverley to the only service centre - they took forever - failed to fix first and second times - so I gave up and trashed it. I think all the major brands are heading down this route: outsource servicing and warranty issues to a single provider. Most I think are now owned by the same parent company so don't have local offices or support.
  9. Klipsch SPL line of subs are forward firing and ported, there's a 10, 12 and 15 - but no sub wants to live in the closet
  10. Anyone have any thoughts about Onkyo as a brand in terms of quality, reliability, after sales? I need to update my old Pioneer home receiver to something like TX-8390 [stereo network receiver], but have never owned Onkyo. thanks
  11. yes, im well on gumtree, but someone recommended here. think not, seems more discussion focused. thanks.
  12. fyi Burson has an updated Conductor 3 - I have one and had previous versions - its a significant upgrade in build and sound quality
  13. well hello there - I just want to sell some stuff?? Melbourne.
