I own the original Krell Foundation (no 4K pass-through). I recently bought a Shield TV Pro 2019 and have now lost 4K/HDR/DV from various streaming apps compared with the internal TV apps but the Shield experience is so much better, I'm sticking with it.
To bring 4K to the Foundation, I could buy the Krell 4K HDR Switcher but it is ruddy expensive ($1,800) and there are none in Australia. I could also buy an HDFury device which are cheaper.
So far, so good but there are various other niggles with the Krell, such as its crappy IR, flaky ARC, and RC5 socket on the back which seems all but unusable, a fairly ordinary UI and ARES is an unknown quantity.
The SQ is excellent though!
From what I have read, everything on the Anthem AVM60 seems to just work. Also, ARC has been around for much longer and seen more development so is likely to be superior to ARES.
If I moved from the Foundation to the AVM60, would it be an upgrade, a sideways move or would I be sacrificing SQ for usability?
The other frustration is the support for Krell here in Australia. The distributor seems to have authorised one, single dealer in the entire country so product availability, pricing and support is totally monopolised and return-to-base upgrades such as the free DSD upgrade or the cost 4K upgrade were never an option. Anthem has a much more extensive dealer network.
Thank in advance for any thoughts.
Been researching a few options to get together a speaker / subwoofer set ups for around $500. Keen to muck around with seperate speakers / subwoofers / amps etc if its louder / cheaper - like car speakers. Bit of background info: making a unit that can be hired out at various parties, so just needs to be as loud as possible with good bass to keep cutsomers happy. Speakers / everything will not be visible (behind a speaker fabric / mesh), so doesn't matter what they "look" like they'll sound like.
Option 1 - logitech z-5500 speakers
Option 2 - car speakers / amp. not sure how loud this will be or if $500 is enough to make it viable - 10 inch sub? 12 inch sub? 2 subs? 6 inch speakers? tweeters? done a car install before and done a lot of researching on prices on ebay and other stores.
Option 3 - dj / PA speakers - no idea about these never looked in to them - good option? which ones? cost effective?
Other options?? basically looking for most cost effective option that is LOUD!
Thanks a lot hopefully you know a bit about some of these options and can help me out!! Much appreciated!! Daniel.
