  1. ^^ This. So you can integrate it better with your other speakers. From SVS - "The phase control in a powered subwoofer allows the user to add electrical delay to the incoming signal. The phase control operates over a range of 0 to 180 degrees. Adding delay to the subwoofer signal can sometimes help the subwoofer to integrate better with the loudspeakers in the room. Setting the phase control to 180 degrees reverses the polarity of the subwoofer. In some application where the subwoofer is placed on a wall opposite from the speakers, reversing the subwoofer polarity can
  2. No, direction doesn't matter, LFE is omni-directional, but understand you may want it facing a particular way for aesthetics. As long as you tune/calibrate for the new position it will be fine.
  3. Certainly agree, you don't have much room to work with. As already suggested, put the sub in your listening position (dump in on the couch where you sit), put on a test track and walk/crawl around the room to find the best bass response. That's where the sub will provide the best response. Will it end up in a convenient position, probably not but as you're aware, the dimensions of your room are terrible for low frequency response. Given your restrictions, I'd guess the sub will likely perform best (better) along the wall under the window, likely in the middle. Try different pos
  4. I believe SiliconDust now sell this range direct to consumers in Australia. Try - https://shop.silicondust.com/shop/?_ga=2.165953790.1344881064.1619764410-1023217273.1619764410
  5. Strangely the latest firmware for the 590 & 790 are listed under a VPL-VW890 on Sony AU site... typo or maybe 870 replacement on the way? Link here - https://pro.sony/en_AU/search?q=VPL-VW890ES&type=s&cat=&model=VPL-VW890ES I've just applied the 6.003 update to my 790. Not tested anything yet but it hasn't bricked it, so that a good start. Initial power on after update took close to 10 minutes so don't freak out post upgrade. As a reminder, the new process to update firmware on these projectors calls for you to 'unplug' the device, insert
  6. Further information: Up for sale is my Anthem AVM60 processor. Unit is approx 12-18 months old and is in excellent condition. Includes ARC kit and all original accessories, manuals and box. Shipping via insured courier is included to anywhere in Australia. Full product details and specs available from Anthem - https://www.anthemav.com/products-archived/model=avm-60/page=overview Photos:
  7. Yes, the comparison calibration results for the AVM60 I posted were taken on 25/03/2020 (so just over 2 weeks earlier) using the latest Genesis software. I didn't originally plan to compare the two but thought it may be useful to pull up a calibration file from the AVM60 to compare. Absolutely CBF. I'll be posting my AVM60 in classifieds shortly (already boxed up) so won't be doing any direct A/B comparisons. TBH, I doubt I would come to any different conclusions, the AVM70 just sounds better than the AVM60 in my room... period. I've spent the last 12-18 months listen
  8. Highly unlikely at this stage. I have no need (or compatible display) for the additional features provided by HDMI 2.1. I'm guessing I'll be ready for a new pre pro before I need/want HDMI 2.1.
  9. So quick initial impressions of the AVM70. The TLDR version = it's great, just buy it For reference, the AVM70 replaces my AVM60 (yes it will be for sale shortly). This is installed in a dedicated room running a 7.2.4 (soon to be 7.4.6) configuration and also doubles for 2 channel duties. Setup I found this quick and easy, just plug and play. Upon initial power on, new firmware was available and proceeded to download & install. Only point I'd comment regarding the FW update is it took longer than I expected to install, think 10-15 minutes. Once complete
  10. Ready to install over the weekend. Will report back on initial impressions.
  11. Congrats on the PL300's, beautiful speaker. I'm also new to the thread and the Monitor Audio brand. Similarly, I dove in at the deep end of the pool with the Platinum series and recently purchased a pair of PL500II and PLC350II (Rosewood). Duties are split for music and movies (20/80). Power is via Parasound A31 for three front channels. I've had about 2 weeks with them now, so far so good. It's definitely added a bigger sense of 'scale' in the room. Not many pics as yet, but here's a few on delivery day. The boxes are massive as you'd expected. 153kg (packed) ea
  12. I got a message today advising my AVM70 is in the country. Should have it in hand before the end of the week.
