  1. For the first time, I have a dedicated room for HT and Gaming and I have finally finished the acoustic treatment of the room. To create this space of 3.4 x 4.9 x 2.5 meter, I had to move the laundry, toilet and bathroom and knock some walls down. Yes…….. the missus really, really loves me. I had a look at soundproofing the room but decided to not go through with that idea, because the room was rather smallish to begin with and the build a bit complicated, with all the different walls and joist intersecting with each other and with the rest of the house. The room has a double brick outer wall with an air gap in between it, as the front and the right wall. The front wall also has a window in it behind the AT screen. The left wall is a solid double brick internal wall. The ceiling has a couple of 200mm exposed roof joist with some timber on top, 100mm insulation and a flat sheet metal roof. The back wall is newly constructed and is made out of 17mm plywood with 10mm gyprock on top, on both sides, with insulation in between. And the floor is a solid concrete slab. This room is rather solid and therefor rather challenging regarding bass issues. All treatment is DIY, and the total material cost for acoustic treatment is around $1100 AUD. The screen wall is a timber frame held up by corner (bass trapping) towers, resting on top of the floor boards, and locked into place by screwing it into the roof joists. It is sitting 550mm from the front wall and is basically functioning as one giant bass absorption trap with 50mm Autex High Density insulation. The wall around the screen has been finished with 6mm MDF sheets with a RPG binary pattern as a finish, and to bring some reflections back into the room. The area behind the AT screen is fully covered in insulation, except for the center speaker. The coverage of unexposed absorption of the front wall is roughly 60%. This improved clarity and sound stage a lot. It also helped with decay rates in the bass frequency. Enough to improve bass clarity, but not enough to even out the decay rate over the full LF frequency range. The bulk heads around the ceiling have been added on later and consist out of 10mm gyprock with more insulation behind them. The rest of the ceiling has been covered in a binary slat pattern that is hung from the 200mm exposed roof joist, and the space between the roof joist has been filled with more insulation again. The coverage of unexposed absorption on the ceiling is roughly 38% I found that this improved stage depth the most. The back of the room has been treated with panels made from the same 6mm MDF binary pattern and Autex insulation and have been mounted at various distances from the wall, 50-100-150mm. I had the mount one on a hinge as it was covering the door. I found this to be a big improvement in clarity and precision of tracking in sound effects. Thanks to clever placement of subwoofers and listen position I have been able to create a LF response for subs and full range front speakers, without any nulls and only need to cut off peaks to receive a flat SPL response. The frequency response of the decay times is less than flat due to the rooms solid build, but doesn’t kick in for the first 20ms, which isn’t too bad. All in all I am quite happy with the outcome, but isn’t my best work regarding finish, as I have favored speed instead of a quality finish.
  2. Item: SHERBOURN PA 2-250 POWER AMPLIFIER Location:PORT MACQUARIE, NSW - MID NORTH COAST Price: $750 Item Condition: VERY GOOD 8/10 Reason for selling: NO LONGER REQUIRED - TOO MUCH GEAR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, DEPOSIT Extra Info: Up for sale is my Sherbourn PA 2-250 power amplifier. For those who don't know, this was the predecessor of the very popular Emotiva XPA-2. 2 x 250w @8 ohms, 2 x 500w @4 ohms XLR and balanced inputs Trigger inputs and outputs Huge torodial power supply Weighs in at 22kg I was using this amplifier with a set of magnepan mg12's I recently rebuilt the frames and crossovers for. I was previously using a Harmon Kardon citation 12 for the Maggies with no compliants, but after the recent modifications , the Maggies dug that much deeper into the bass region that the HK was having a hard time, and got quite a bit warmer than it normally did when a bit of Dire Straits was played...... I found the Sherbourn had a very similar sonic signature to my lovely old HK, but boy could it dig lower without even a hint of breaking a sweat. So much so were the new crossovers, frames and amp working together that well that the lower register was at the point of being detrimental. I made the Maggies into a three way system, put the HK back into the system to cover the mid and top end, and run 2 x 12" sealed subs for the bottom end. And with that, the Sherbourn went back into the box. Would make a great home theatre front channel amplifier, stereo amplifier, or another Maggie owner wanting 500w x 2 @ 4ohms without breaking the budget ( or marriage ). Prefer local pick up as the weight is above some freight carriers limits, and once they know it's second hand audio gear, they won't cover for damage...... been there and done it a few times in the past.......unless you're wanting to pay hundreds of dollars extra ( TNT won't cover for loss ??? only damage ) My username on ebay is also rawcraftwood, so you can look on there for an indication of my feedback. I'm not a trader or seller of audio gear, I'm just like the rest of us, bitten by that darn upgradeitus bug......continually looking for that audio Nirvana. Fleabay is no longer what it used to be 5 years ago, too many crazy people......so I don't sell on there anymore. I have a few other amplifiers to list over the coming weeks....same thing, am happy with the current setup/s and no need to change anymore. I can put the funds to other projects.

Perfect with any of the compact speakers in the series, but at the same time powerful enough to match just about any set of speakers. Secondly, with an eye on practicality, the OPTICON VOKAL has also been designed to fit most makes of Hi-Fi furniture due to the front facing bass ports, meaning it can be neatly stowed away – a plus point for aesthetically minded home owners and home cinema custom installers alike.

If you only have a 5.1 setup, you can BI-AMP your front speakers if your speakers are bi-wireable (4 terminals) The unit also has a DAB+ radio which is also rare to find on AV Receivers. Dolby True-HD and DTS HD Master are supported and the AVR400 also does 1080p upscaling. If you any questions, please feel free to contact me. Located in Sydney North West (near Hornsby).

  18. I was wondering what ( if anything) people have been doing as a bit of showmanship to add to their home theatre experience. The things I am thinking about are customised trailers , old newsreels, cartoons etc. I noticed one or two sites where you can download these from but thought I'd throw it open to see what others have come up with, or may have been contemplating. Any ideas?
  19. Hi, I'm a newbie and setting up my first Home Theatre system. I have a 4.5m by 5.2m enclosed room. Own a projector and screen already. Budget of $2000 for surround sound system, amplifier and blu ray player, Apple TV 4 and would like to connect a mic for karaoke. Don't have an hard wiring for speakers so looking for wireless back speaker option. Any advice please. Thank you!
  20. 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/

  24. Thought I'd carry on this thread with the remainder of my build. My plan is to build a dedicated HT in a new house build some day. In the meantime I thought I'd build one in my current house as I've never used a projector before. In the thread I linked to I decided to get a JVC X7900. The idea was to experiment with screen size to see what sort of viewing angle I would like. From my research I thought I'd like a 45 degree viewing angle. So to keep things flexible I decided I was going to paint the wall with Black Widow or some sort of screen paint. This meant the doorway had to go. This is the room in its original state, just as we were moving in actually which is why it's so messy. It's about 6.3m L x 4.2m W x 2.4m H. Replaced the oyster lights with 6 of these down lights from Bunnings. And closed up the wall; tradies did at least.
