  • Yeah I'm done upgrading for the year at least. No more funds, no more fishing gear will be sold. Top it off my wife was a little pissed that I actually came up with my 1/2 the purchase so quick. I also have a TV stand to make for my future son in-la…
  • That looks real good Ray.
  • Long night last night. Watched John Wick then went to the THX/DTS-X/ATMOS demo trailers. Just amazing on how this setup sounds. Viewed Oceans 8 after, glad I have cool neighbors, I had it a little loud @ 1am Moving the surrounds down closer …
  • Cool, think I'm done adding for a bit too.

  • Sometimes these newer AVR's need a reboot. Unplug it from the wall for a few minutes.
  • Hmm, Sounds kind of like the problem i was having for a bit with my Marantz and Audyssey. I had a null between 60 to 140hz, Audyssey was dropping -10db or more in that range, system sounded hollow. I solved this by putting a shop towel in the …
  • If it's all you can do then go for it. S35 is still a nice center speaker.
  • R.I.P. Mr. Reynolds. Thanks for the great movies.

  • There is a lot you can do, all depends on budget. Watch Slickdeals for sales on Signatures https://www.adorama.com/pkults60g.html?sdtid=11740031&emailprice=t&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_source=rflaid62905 add sub and done. This one h…
  • ^yeah forgot all about that movie^ A friend that is a contractor came over and looked at the way the builder wired my home. He said it's not as easy as it looks to follow the way they wired my house. $200 minimum for his electrician to come out p…
  • Be ready for a shock going from a CSi5/CSI-A6 to a lesser center. I had a CSi5, built my first TV stand and didn't have the knowledge to make the center space big enough. I tried a CSi-3 and it made due, I always thought I was missing something.…
  • You can build one. Not hard just takes time. Signature S35 will fit under the TV or wall mount the S35. You can also wall mount theTV and have the CSi5 on top of the stand.
  • Good luck with OTA audio signal. Cox cable is not that great with either of their boxes. I've tried coax, optical & HDMI. None came even close to DVD let alone Blu-Ray. Fox sports is decent for NFL and college games.
  • pitdogg2 wrote: » Belden is better wire anyway. You can thank the builder Yeah, well at least I'm not going to call an electrician to replace my wire.
  • and I just found the data sheet for this Belden cable. https://catalog.belden.com/techdata/EN/5200UE_techdata.pdf Says "Tinned Copper". At least it doesn't say CCA or is that just another way of saying it?
  • When I got my Marantz I still had RTi8, The Marantz warmed them up nice. A4L has the SR5011 for $449 and the SR5012 for $499. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/category/avreceiver/home-audio/receivers-amps/home-theater-receivers/1.ht…
  • Yeah, Whoever installed this wire stapled it real good, I've pulled on it in the past, it's in good. I was lucky I didn't break it, All the ceiling speaker wires converge in the niche to the right of the fireplace. If I can get the fish tape to t…
  • So after thinking about it overnight I'm not adding S10 at this point. I told my son what I was thinking of doing, he was nice enough to remind me of my OCD. I would be switching from the front to rear ceiling speakers daily and running Audyssey …

  • Here is a better picture from this morning. This is looking from behind the TV. One under the trophy and the other where Teddy is facing in. How would this affect my height speakers. I'd only be going 5.1.2 at this time due to my Marantz is …
  • I agree an amp would drive those speakers a lot better. Bass needs clean power. Parasound, can't go wrong if you have the funds Emotiva, not bad for the price. I've heard the gen 3 are warmer than the older ones. A9 are a bright speaker don't …
  • Yeah, some people have too much time on their hands. I won't talk about my run in with PETA after a fishing trip.
  • ^^^what she said^^^ That SVS 12NSD is a nice sub, I wish I would have had the funds for two of them when they were clearing out. You might also want to look at HSU http://hsuresearch.com/subwoofers.html I like that they can go from sealed to p…

  • Just watched it again, great movie. My wife enjoyed it too. I'm liking the 80F/X-RT surrounds.
  • Very good movie. Maybe I'll put it on for our afternoon flick.
