  1. Hi guys, i have an NAD T175 pre-amp that seems to be auto-muting the audio when the movie gives a silence. i can hear the relay clicking every time. that is really a problem as to come back in it takes a few seconds and cuts the start of the conversation. if listening to tv, on every commercial change it does the same clicking and muting between the scenes. is there anything that can be done to disable this feature ?
  2. Hi Guys, another newbie question. I've been after some speaker wire. i've seen people use cat5/cat6 and all that but i think i'd just stick to standard speaker wires. I'll be using the furthest speaker with about 17-18m because of how the speaker wire needs to be routed. All speakers are rated at 150W but the Front ones that are rated at 250W. the amp will be set under the TV and the only wires to be routed to the right will be the front right and the Surround right all other ones will have to be routed through the left passing from the TV through Subwoofer, fron
  3. Hi @hopefullguy, sorry to bother you with a silly question, but just so i dont have this problem again, how do i know if the speakers are inefficient? is that by the sensitivity ? my previous was 89db. was loud but not even close to the fidelity(clarity on shows) that this one gives me. and i thought that 86db was close enough to the 89 i had before. what would be a good one ? not that i will buy right now, but just to learn really.
  4. Would this preprocessor be suitable? any suggestions? this guy is close to home and has 7.2 rca out. that combined with LX7 should make a good setup with about 2k what are your thoughts ? maybe ? or for what i am wanting id better to go so me other path? not really diving into the 3d sound at the moment with the budget increase.
  5. hi @Janjuc, thanks for the support and suggestions. I'm unsure why nht are not that known here in AU. they are current models and was cheap cheap. so i moved a few of the speakers around to have these as front. hence the need for upgrading At the moment, i have a bit of a mess. yamaha driving rear 2 and sub with the stereo out connected to my technics SU-X901 amp which can drive the speakers a bit better. I think i'm gonna have to a bit more than double my budget then. so no extra speakers for 3D sound at this point. and maybe stick with a 5.1 unt
  6. I wonder if one of this would be up to the task atm then, when a rotel comes up get that to drive them and keep growing with a 11ch... start separating amp/receiver Marantz sr6010 https://www.marantz.com/en-gb/shop/avreceiver/sr6010?status=discontinue or denon x2400h https://www.denon.com/en-gb/shop/avreceiver/avrx2400h the marantz had the advntage of processing 9 channels instead of just 7. Looking at specs some of them just say 100w/ch other say 100w/ch (when 2ch driven). does that mean that when connecting more speakers
  7. Hi hopefull added to the original post. thanks
  8. Hi betty boop, I was hoping to upgrade the AVR so i could have 4k support. i've added my current setup in the original post. What would be roughly the price of a good 5/7 power amp ? arent they usually same price or more expensive than an average AVR? I've been suggested to use Marantz SR6009, but no idea on that one. I'm not wanting anything new, so i thought that 1k would be ok. How much would be one that would be worth it ? for a 7.1.2 it would be good, but only if on sale, close to the 5ch. i'd say. try finding another 2 speakers would take a wh
  9. Hi guys, I would really appreciate any guidance. I have front right/left speakers which are 6ohm 250w (nominal) central, rear left and rear right are 8ohm 150w (nominal) My amp is at the moment struggling to push all those speakers so i was wanting to upgrade. budget wise i think up to about 1k would be something for a 5 channel (just guessing here), if more how much more would be needed ? would there be one the would be HDCP 2.2-compliant ? if some that have atmos capability so i can buy some speakers and add in the future would be great. so would be 5
