  1. Hi guys. Another help me choose thread. I am currently building my house and planning to have a 5.2.2 setup in my theatre room. Room measurements are 4240mm X 3080mm, ground floor of a 2 storey home in Sydney North West. My current speakers are all Richter MK4 speakers. Have not decided on a AV Receiver yet as the build still have a few months to go but leaning towards a Sony STR-DN1080. Usage would be 80% movies and 20% music. I am looking to get a pair of ceiling speakers for atmos use. My budget is around $500 but can be stretched if necessary. Any suggestions on ceiling speakers that I should look into, which would be a match for my current setup? Reading through some other forums, I am considering the below, but this is only based on my limited research. 1. https://www.selby.com.au/pair-of-8in-angled-glass-fibre-ceiling-speakers-xd8205b-x2.html 2. https://www.customht.com.au/products/ns-ic800?variant=14009024544820&currency=AUD&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=google+shopping&gclid=CjwKCAiAj-_xBRBjEiwAmRbqYqUTjJD_qtRPY4ljtjTx-S0A6j8l8A5j_XWP0sUXE43JjFZ6SquQbxoC5rYQAvD_BwE Appreciate any help. Thank you.
  2. Item: Denon AVC-X8500B Location: Perth Price: $4000 $3800 + shipping Item Condition: Excellent (1.5 years old – but has been boxed for last 5 months) Reason for selling: Moved house with no room for theatre ☹ Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer Extra Info Denon’s flagship AVR with 13.2 channels. Allows for a very flexible arrangement with 9.2.4, 7.2.6 ATMOS, DTS-X or Auro layouts. The 13 channels are fully amplified, so an external amp is not required to fully use all channels. Comes with all documents and accessories. Have original box, so shipping is an option (fyi this thing is not light). If you search my name, you’ll see details of my previous system(s) so know that I am an enthusiast. Rest assured when I say this is a quality and very capable product. I was extremely happy with the Denon. If I still had my system, I would have happily kept it until it died (with the only reason to change out being going to a higher channel count).

  6. SNA just announced the new SP4 in the news. Bryston has partnered up with Storm Audio for the digital part of the processor. Based upon what storm audio is already offering we might get an idea about what the SP4 is going to be like. https://www.stormaudio.com/en/products/av-immersive-sound-processors/7807-isp-3d16-elite.html You can email James Tanner jamestanner@bryston.com for a preliminary PDF of the SP4 as posted on audiocircle. http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=155431.0 Looks like this is going to be an more expensive unit then the SP3 (which is going to coexist with the SP4), most likely absolutely out of reach for many of us.
  7. Hi All, as title suggests looking to build a set of upfiring Atmos speakers to sit on top of my front mains. was looking at hivi b3s as i have a few laying around. arranging 4 in a square in an angled baffle around 30 deg, the baffle would be recessed so the front edge is hidden from listeners line of sight to eliminate direct axis hopefully achieving a more reflected sound. More of an experiment, but wondering if any one has tried this and was it worth it? thanks Dwayne
  8. Item: Denon AVR-X1400H 7.2 Channel 4K Network AV Receiver Location: Erskineville, NSW Price: $520 ONO Item Condition: Near New Reason for selling: Downsized to 2-channel Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Hi Guys.

Included is the remote, Audyssey mic, stand and all manuals etc. Specs can be found on the Denon website. I'm sure I don't need to handfeed the stereo.net.au community Pick up only and cash.

  9. Ahoy! So I'm heading towards the pointy (purchasing) end of my home theatre kit out so I decided to draw up a diagram to help map out speaker placements, which will in turn drive my receiver purchase. One of the things that's come out of this is that I don't have anywhere to mount/install the side surrounds to be in spec for Dolby Atmos 😕 Ideally I'd like to go down the path of having a 7.2.4 setup, but unless the side surrounds can put in the ceiling without sacrificing sound quality then I'm not really sure how this is going to work 🤔 From pic: Left speaker can go above the window, but will be 2m further away than the right speaker if installed opposite. Right speaker can't be installed in spec due to tiled fireplace (floor to ceiling) Primary sitting position can't be moved due to WAF We'll deal with the logistical nightmare of convincing my infinitely better half that we should install 6 speakers in the ceiling at a later date 😉 Does anyone have any experience with ceiling mounting surrounds? Pros/cons? Cheers 🙂 RJ
  10. One extra feature. 5 thousand bucks!!! That's the ridiculous price tag I have come to realise for my own circumstance in order to add Dolby and DTS 3D audio. It's out of the question and it makes me pretty unhappy that I have to force myself to ignore the want. Sure, if I was a high income earner I'd be dedicated to spend that and maybe even more - because I want it!! Alas, my family deserve me to spend the money on them and not another set of home theatre upgrades. Now let me explain why I put a 5 grand price on this. Before hand though, I might just add that I have ZERO interest in adding Dolby Vision, HDMI 2.1, HDCP 2.2 video switching features, am totally happy feeding HDMI cables to the TV with the video and one HDMI from the SONY X800 to the pre-amp for audio as I currently do with just one toslink coming back from the TV digital output when using Foxtel, Chromecast or inbuilt TV apps. I know I will get these extra benefits with any new components but it's not a value to me I would choose to pay extra for because we like having just the TV on from time to time ya know, don't need 1000W to watch TV. I currently run 7.1 with all VAF speakers and have an old but high quality Integra pre-amp DCH 9.9 , 1x Yamaha receiver ( RX-V1) used for 5 ch power and 1 x Yamaha (RX-V3000) for surround back power, so I do not wish to spend money and go backwards on quality, there's the biggest problem. How do I upgrade just one feature for a fair price without going backwards. Sure, I could get a Black Friday special 7.2 ch AV receiver for maybe a grand and run 5.1.2 ( boring) and there's my ATMOS> No thanks, those entry level or even mid level units are a step backwards in power and quality of power. What really upsets me is that these low to mid tier units do not have pre-outs OR if they do have pre-outs they never have enough pre-outs. If you want 7.1.4 the manufacturers FORCE you into the very high end receiver market or the separates market and you need 3 grand plus JUST TO ADD ATMOS to an existing capable 7.1 system. Why can't they make a sub $1000 receiver with low power amps or just 7 or 9 channels but at least have 11 channel pre-outs? If I am going to do something I am going to do it right, that means 7.1.4 and that means my cheapest option is the Marantz SR 6013 plus my existing RX-V1 to drive at least 2 channels. ( id probably drive 5 from it ). It also means I need 2 sets of quality height speakers ( $2 k ) and accessories, 5 k all up. I know a lot of people would say get cheaper speakers but I don't want the new feature to be the low point, from what I have read I would not be happy with 2 height channels either and best to go 4 up top? Sorry if my whining is hard to understand. I just can't play with the big boys like I was hoping to.

  12. Hi Guys, Just brought a Denon AVR x3400H to replace an old Marrantz SR5004(not blown away by the Denon yet even tho I never ran the Marrantz Audyssey in the new room), and I would like to take advantage of the Atmos feature in a 5.1.2 layout as it seems more robust for different formats than a front heights layout which I had always planned on doing with the Marrantz. Attached is my layout currently minus the TFL and TFR Atmos ceiling speakers, TFL and TFR are located according to Dolby's specs of inline with FL and FR and 80º from MLP ear level. Luckily this is just outside of the ceiling rose, but I still really want to avoid cutting big holes in the ceiling for in-ceiling speakers. Room: plaster walls and ceiling, hardwood floors Ceiling Height: 3020mm Current speakers: Jamo fronts:S606 Center and Sur:S60 Sub:Sub300 Here's what I see my options are: Mount small bookshelf/surrounds/satellites to the ceiling on an omnimount and either down fire or angle slightly, these could either be the surrounds I currently have and replace them with Bipoles for better dispersion along back wall or something small like jamo A340. But I'm not sure if surround speakers like this have enough dispersion for Atmos ceiling duty, I can't find dispersion in the specs for most speakers? This would also be the ugliest solution. Mount flater more diffused speakers like https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Jamo-ART-wall-mounted-speakers-made-in-Denmark/253944970508 or some sort of low profile bipole? Mount outdoor speakers like option 1, not sure outdoor speakers are the best? If they were white shouldn't stick out too much. In-ceiling speakers like Jamo contractor series or Yamaha NS-IC800s, I really don't want 6-8" holes in my ceiling as it's a litte too permanent and close to the ceiling rose. Also regarding layout would there be much difference in mounting the ceiling speakers symmetrical to the MLP as Dolby wants it or symmetrical to the room? What do you guys think? I don't see a problem with mounting on ceiling except for aesthetics given the 3m ceiling allows plenty of room between ear level and speaker. Also any other suggestions you have to improve the less than ideal room layout would be appreciated? loungeHT.pdf

  14. Hi all, An upcoming move of residence means I regretfully must part with the magnificent Jamo D600 speaker system. They're reference cinema sound quality and perform admirably for music. I currently have it configured in 9.4.2 FOR Dolby ATMOS/DTS X. I'm keeping my subwoofers. So, the system for sale includes : 7 x D600 LCR and 2 X D600 Surround Speakers. One of the surround speakers has a blemish on it but works perfectly. All other speakers are as new, with original boxes and packaging. I'm the only owner. The speakers are ideal for wall mounting. Pick up in West of Sydney is ideal or I can ship them interstate. Freight and cost would need to be arranged by the buyer. If bought new the price is about $7740 for these amazing speakers. I'm asking for $4500. If you are interested, let me know. I can text pictures to you or you're welcome to have them auditioned for you in Concord, Sydney . This is a regretful sale, believe me!! I wanted these for ages. See reviews below. http://www.whathifi.com/jamo/d-600/review http://www.trustedreviews.com/jamo-d-600-review http://www.avaustralia.com.au/jamo-d600-5-1-thx-ultra2-home-theatre-system/

  18. There is no option to rent Blu-ray but the video easy kisok . Hence I rented few titles to hear on my new dolby Atmos theatre . But to my surprise the rented Blu-ray did not have Atmos option when I put it my player. Its sad I can't check before renting if it has Atmos encoding in it? https://www.imdb.com/search/title?sound_mixes=dolby_atmos And disappointed that Australia is receiving disk which are not Dolby Atmos encoded? Where as on IMDb it does mention the movies released on Atmos. Feel like my money down the drain on this Atmos setup and can't buy every title from JB hi-fi. Dono what to do! Any suggestions?

  20. Item: Yamaha NS-IC600 In-Ceiling Speakers (x 4) Location: Melbourne (W Suburbs) Price: $400 Item Condition: BRAND NEW - Never used Reason for selling: Won't fit where need located in ceiling (trusses in the way) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+ fees), COD Only Extra Info: I purchased 2 boxes (total of 4 speakers) 6 months ago to use in my HT that i am building over the next few months in my house getting built. Long story short, Unfortunately due to where the Trusses are and bulkhead, these are about 3-4cm too big and won't fit where they are needed to go for my 4 speaker atmos set up i am planning. To be honest I pretty miffed they won't fit, ans I researched and purchased these due to the enclosed rear of the speaker which is perfect for avoiding dust getting in to the speakers int he ceiling. I now have to search for an alternative for 5" woofers or less. They have NEVER BEEN USED or even PLUGGED in (and don't think i even opened 1 of the boxes) as they have been sitting in their boxes under a sheet for the past 6 months. Pick up only or buyer to arrange courier as don't have time to run around getting quotes.

  21. Project Atmos I'm building a new house with a dedicated space for a Dolby Atmos Home Theater. I never thought my wife would let me! Dont tell her how much I've spent! My Wife and I have settled on a plan after god knows how many display homes and webpages. Its hard because of our land size of 512sqm is not that big compared to land that me and my friends grew up on on the edge of suburbia. I'm still waiting for the first draft of the house plans to come back and I know I need to amend things already. Like I haven't told them I need conduit throughout the walls for speaker wire LOL. And I'm yet to decide on the door type/style & position for entry. I also need to include an equipment closet, what do they look like? and where should I position it. I'm thinking I can pinch some space from the study next door to make a cupboard and run a vent fan into the ceiling cavity I guess. So if you want please feel free to help me through this journey and I will share all the info and photos as it comes along. I certainly need help. Like custom made subs I don't have a clue about and maybe there is something that I am missing that is obvious to you but not to me. I would really appreciate it. Thanks lads Room Size 5.7 Long x 4.5m Wide x 2.55m High Rough Sketchup The plan - 26th Feb 2016 Speakers: I already have a few KEF Q Series speakers for the ground level for the 7.#.# out of the 7.1.4. I just ordered two in ceiling Ci200RR-THX speakers from the states and I will buy another couple in a few days to try and avoid the import tax etc. Front L/R - Floor Standing Kef Q900 Surround L/R - Floor Standing Kef Q900 Surround Back - Kef Q300 Centre - Kef Q600c Atmos Ceiling - 2x Kef Ci200RR-THX - Will buy another 2 to make 4 total Subs I have one SVS PC13-Ultra and I love it. But I had a lad suggest to me maybe I should go custom and make 4 of my own custom 18" sub-woofers. Ive never done this before and I dont know what it would sound like but I am excited to hear and feel what that would be like. or I can go another/2nd SVS PC13 Ultra but it will cost another $2,999. So potentially I can sell the PC13U that I own and fund a better system but I will have to make it myself and I have never done this before, but I am very handy and could pull it off, or not lol. Screen & PJ Projector - Epson tw9200 Screen - 120" 16:9 In the Equipment closet AVR - Denon x7200 (Need to buy still) AMP - Rotel 1585 5 x 200w Blu Ray - Oppo 103D Satelite TV - Foxtel Game console of choice - PS4 PC - 5960x + 2x GTX Titan X Building Materials & Stuff So far its Rocakwall insulation and Soundcheck plaster and some special glue with 90mm noggins. Things I need help with: 1. Design for a component closet. What should it look like? where should it be positioned, what sort of fan system should it have, if any? etc 2. Custom made 18" subs - Where do I start I dont know. Do you know what would suit my room? Is there anyone near Geelong wanting to help me make them or be appart of the process in some way. What materials should I use and buy from where? 3. Is the Denon x7200 the best suited AVR for my 7.1.4 Atmos setup? 4. Should I do anything extra to the room? 5. I need to sort out position of the subs and what the center speaker will be sitting on. 5. Am I missing something? Thanks lads!! UPDATES: 25th Feb 2016 - House plan locked in. First drafts getting done will be ready for 29th Feb. 26th Feb 2016 - Investigating into Fire Hoods and backing housings for in-ceiling speakers and if they are not installed with the in ceiling speaker to they void my houses fire insurance? Looking into making my own subs!!! I am quite handy and don't mind giving it a crack just got to see if it will be an improvement over buying a 2nd SVS PC13Ultra. I'm guessing 2 or even 4 18" subs would be ridiculous but I want them to work 100 percent. I don't want to be fiddling with them all the time etc. Also got to work out how I incorporate a equipment rack into my design and what I need to do to make it actually effective and not do a dodgy mashed up job of it. So I have my home work cut out for me before the 29th Feb. 27th Feb 2016 - Sold a Cambridge Audio CXA80 integrated amp, Kef LS50's and a Cambridge Audio Minx X500 Sub to help fund the atmos project.

  25. I am considering upgrading my 5.1 theatre set up to Dolby Atmos with some ceiling speakers. It is quite a costly affair with new speakers installed and a new amp, etc. There arent a lot of blu-ray titles that support Dolby Atmos or DTS:X right now and I'm wondering if it will be worth it? It will be justified if most/all movies in the near future will be released with a good Dolby Atmos soundtrack. It would not be worth it if is is like 3D movies where there are only a select few since it hasnt really caught on. In hind sight, I didnt need to get my 3D TV. What are your thoughts?
