  1. Item: Dali Rubicon 6, floor standing speakers in black Location: Leichhardt Price: $3,495. Item Condition: NEW Reason for selling: Clearance Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Credit card on pick up, Direct deposit Extra Info: Can freight at extra cost RUBICON 6 is a floor standing loudspeaker that features two 6½ inch woofers, each sporting its own bass port, gold-plated bi-wiring terminals and our innovative ribbon/soft dome hybrid tweeter module, which also was used in the EPICON series. The RUBICON 6 is able to deliver more physical bass to fill a larger room, especially thanks to the woofers. The two woofers work together to move much more air, delivering more powerful bass and pumping out audio excellence that fills the room. The driver construction of the RUBICON 6 makes it even more powerful than its smaller siblings with enhanced and controlled performance.

  2. Item: KEF Reference CI5160RL-THX Speakers (3x Speakers, suit LCR) Quantity: 3x Speakers Location: Melbourne Price: $8,500 (RRP $15,000) Item Condition: USED but like new. 2 years old. Reason for selling: Going in another direction, going to build my own speakers. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash on pick up Extra Info: These speakers will look great in modern living room. Their beauty is wasted behind the screen. Performance wise they will pass any test. Truly excellent condition. Always been adequately powered with a 200w Rotel class AB amplifer. Unfortunately I have sprayed the grilles black but not hard to change again if needed. I would leave them off if you can. You can have the boxes I made for them too if you want till you get your room sorted and atleast then you can still have a listen. Overall I'm hoping I dont regret selling them. They sound great and have brought many movie sound tracks to life when other systems have not. Come test them out before you buy, but only for serious buyers, sorry. Pictures: Sorry I dont have any other pictures on my phone after I got the new phone. If interested I will certainly take the projector screen off and take some new photos. The last photo I pulled from Google and shows a in wall setup with my speakers.
  3. 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.
  4. Hi everyone, I am from Melbourne. I am new here and has a question. I has a small room 4m x 4m and has a setup 7.1 surround speakers with projector benq. Ceiling is 2.8m high. Speakers are yamaha and i am not very happy with the sound, the effect does not sound like in a cinema. I remeber it is YHT896AUB. The 2 rear speakers very much on top of the viewing lounge so i can convert settings to 5.2.1 atmos. Also I can move the chair bit further back when i watch movie. As it will block the front door. What would you suggest me for a good setup home theater 5.2.1 atmos but not overpower, clear sound from surround speakers, good center speaker and sub woofer. Would like to buy preown speakers which still in good conditions. My budget is around $2000 including receiver. I tested my friend setup with paradigm series 6 and denon receiver atmos. They sound good but not sure if there is other options to suit my budget and deliver good result. Many thanks for your advice. James
  5. I have 2 Klipsch SW-450 subs in my Theater room, one in the front and one in the mid back behind my couch. I was told by someone that I should have both of those up front and get a third sub with the speaker posts on it wired to my surround speakers so when a dedicated explosion happens in the rear I will have the boom also back their. any ideas

  8. Item: Emotiva XMC-1 Gen 2 Home Theatre AV PREAMP/PROCESSOR (HT receiver but with no amps) Location: Glen Waverley, Victoria Item condition description: BRAND NEW SEALED BOX Price and price conditions: $2995 Usual Price: $3999 http://www.lifestylestore.com.au/emotiva-xmc-1-generation-2-7-2-a-v-preamplifier-processor.html Reason for selling: In between jobs. Need money for house repayments. Payment Methods: Paypal (add 3%), Cash - Pickup, Bank Transfer. Extra info: I have not opened it since I bought this direct from Emotiva. Between the time I bought it up to the time it arrived, I had an enforced change in jobs and I am tight on funds. Make no mistake, this is my dream AV PREAMP/PROCESSOR with an unequaled dirac le auto tune optimizer for it's price range and I will buy this again once I am not so tight financially. Keep in mind this unit is without any amplification (which will usually aid in sound quality) and will require you to have a power amp to pair it with. If you want I can also upload a picture of the shipping box. It's still sealed inside.

  12. (I just try this in this section of the forum too. I don't know where it will fit in the best.) I just recently started experimenting with JRiver doing all the audio decoding for movies instead of using bit stream. This will open up the possibilities for using convolution filters/room corrections. My reciever can't do any room corrections/convolution filters and doesn't allow me to set the speaker distance for induvidual codecs, unlike the speaker size and level settings, which I can set for induvidual formats. So I cannot bypass the reciever's dsp in total for some A/B testing. Does anyone have any experience with using DSP equalizer or convolution filters in JRiver. My firts experiment will be to find out if I can make the center speaker less localized or virtual lift it to the same height as my L+R speakers. It is sitting lower and I am able to pick it up. I would like to have it blend in more with the L+R speakers. The other thing is, does anyone know about HDMI drivers that bypasses the Windows Audio Management. I am currently using a Nvidia GeForce WASAPI audio driver.
  13. Hi All I'll introduce myself hear first post. I'm Mark and from Perth Western Australia I do like watching movies and youtube music videos. I am building a house and its at roof cover stage and I'm kicking myself hard because if i'd discovered this forum or the shop that sells the equipment I would of made the home theater bigger; enough for 2rows etc.... now I am dreaming. Anyway I have been reading this forum, visiting shops and reading product reviews. I'm lost and confused... .......but I've not given up I still want a kick-ass ground shaking theater room but I'm a n00b so I turn to you guys as you seem very enthusiastic, with heaps of experience and wise knowledge, which I would love to copy and paste from your brain to mine by a USB I have uploaded and image of my small room that's going to be my theater and the 2 quotes. Yes i know double doorssssss. at least I put 2 conduits in and extra power at the back but my wife wants to cover the hole room with curtains yes 360 degrees and I got thick carpets too. so I am young and don't own any furniture nor equipment so I went to west coast HIFI and got 2 quotes from them and I get the feeling of disappointment. Today I've taken a day off work to go window shopping, there isn't many places in Perth that do Home Theater, theirs only west coast HIFI, surround sounds and Douglas hifi, oh and Frank Prowse HiFI. I have not looked into online or international first I need to know what I need. My room is 4430 wide so nice 4 seat leather couch will go in. but 3890 long bit close to screen Bulkhead (wall to 700in all way round) 28c or 2400 high center of ceiling is 31c or 2700 high Bow i did use this website with the 2 different high i cant work out if i got a good room. Screen size I will be sitting about 3500 away I am counting about 400mm for the recliners space. Some say I could get away with 4K Hisense 75" UHD LED LCD 100Hz 3D Smart TV for $4500 others recommend a projector and 100'' size max Now i love B&W speakers especially the cm10 s2 one shop today said that's over kill I love bass,. in my car i have a nice 10'' that made me sick at the start now I feel its losing power or I'm getting deaf. In my opinion the two quote I got are; over my budget, I wonder if I could save somewhere on parts, and I did not like the Yamaha speaker did not cut it for me. The sales man has also added in the quote krix subwoofer because the psb subwoofer was not loud enough for me the krix did make the room shake i think the panasonic DMR-BWT945GL would be great if i went for projector that unit would be my smart hub. Therefore my question is, what would recommend for me. 5.1 or 5.2 ? TV or Projector ? speaker recommendation ( floor or bookshelf on stands ?) (subs I do like if I feel the sound or vibration or neighbors complaining ) ? ( rear in ceiling or ? ) Yamaha power and pre or normal av receiver ? bluray player do i need to be worried about them did i miss any questions ? feel free to add model numbers if you recommending I will appreciate everything I am give, as now I'm in a dilemma.
  14. Hi there guys. I need some help with choosing the right components for my home theater system. 5.4 My system at this stage is: Receiver Onkyo tx-sr876, Samsung Bluray player, Power amp is Emotiva xpa-5 5 channel, speakers are Paradigm Studio v4 60's, 40's and CC690 center, 4 x 10'' jensen subs, 110'' screen and Sony VPL HW50ES projector. My problem is: I would like to eliminate my Onkyo receiver and the crappy samsung blue ray player. (weakest links in my system) Ive been looking into getting the Emotiva umc-200 7.1 pre/pro and the new oppo bdp103 or bdp105 player. Im after the best possible sound and picture quality i can possibly get out of my system (without spending heaps of $$). Also do i actually need the Emotiva pre/pro, apparently the oppo bdp105 can remove the need for a pre/pro, would this be correct in my setup? Or would having the Emotiva pre/pro be more beneficial to my sound quality? I need the help from experienced audioheads here as im not up to speed with connectivity between certain components (im still learning the ins and outs of modern components, and loving it) : ) Any advice will be appreciated, thanks Heath.
