    Interested to hear your thoughts after break-in, especially the height modules.

    Yes,The oppo205's don't have atmosphere channels so i'll use its rear left and right surrounds for the modules,thinking i will have to add their positions distance in the line of the reflection from the ceiling! If it doesn't sound right,'ll just leave it disconnected until a later date.

    I'm sorry mate I do not understand this?
    Oppo 205 do send those to the pre/pro or receiver.

    Hey Pitdogg2.Yes, all oppo205's can forward all the digital information to a preamp/processor which includes atmos capable equipment.
    I use the oppo205 directly from its 7.1 "analogue outputs" and connect them directly to amplifiers. The oppo205 doesn't output atmos channels in analogue !
    Be careful doing this as the oppo's volume has to be set to variable when using this method !

    Gotcha. Never crossed my mind to run it that way.

    Put the psaudio stellar gain cell DAC/pre back into the system. Had a bad channel on the input board. Psaudio replaced the entire board. Fast turn around. 👍👍

    Shout out to @Clipdat (I bought it from him) for doing the legwork to see if it would be covered under warranty. It was. Thanks Drew!

    Moved the 1Cs back to the closet to declutter the fun side on my home office.

    I need to clean up the wires next. It doesn't really bug me, but looking at this picture I can see why it drives my wife nuts.

    MAd some tweaks upstairs to get ready for the kanta's incoming. Moved the tv over a few inches, widened out the sub and component rack so I could 8ft separation between the speakers. Put up a few treatments behind the speaker locations (should have 9-10 ft from speaker to listening position). I am going to rewrap these in black I think eventually, I have 6 more, I think I am going to do a matrix of at least 4 on the attic sloped surface behind the couch as I imagine I will gave some nasty reflections off that. I never really cared with the LSIM's but I need to get the room as good as I can for the Kanta's. The room has a 7 foot ceiling unfortunately so either way I am going to struggle a bit but the Kanta's are a long haul speaker for me and I won't be in this attic forever

    Zach, where did you find all thread in that diameter and finish? I really dig that look!

    They look minty! Odd configuration with the tweeters facing outward just a bit. How do they sound?

    I was really hoping to mimic the wide and detailed soundstage of the Polks. It didn't happen so I'll swap them to the inside and hopefully gain some center imaging. They have a touch more low end than the 1.2tl's and also have a pleasant non fatiguing sound.

    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same.

    Oh, got it. More bottom end than 1.2tl is no joke. For some reason I have always liked the look of the larger end of that ADS line. I have been looking to audition something a little different than my collectin of SDAs. Just curious what I am missing...

    I just missed a pair of Vandersteen 2CI for $250 and a pair of Infinity RS4 for $200 over the last few weeks. I will remain on the look out.

    Which Infinity RS4s? (i.e. with planar tweet/midrange dome/two woofers, or the 2-way with waveguide tweeter).

    I don’t care for the latter, and haven’t heard the former.

    The Vandersteen 2CI would’ve been a steal at that price.

    Are you anywhere near St. Louis area? Lots of goodies on CL today.

    The RS4s were the two 8inch woofer, dome mid, EMIT tweeter variety. They looked great.

    DC and Baltimore are close for me. I believe those 2 were in Alexandria and Silver Spring. Honestly I was more excited about the RS4s. I will remain on the look out for a decent set of RS line Infinities, Dahlquist DQ-10 or 20, and Vandersteen 2ci (sig if I am lucky). I may pull the trigger on a pair of Magnapan LRS at some point, who knows.

    Yeah, the RS4s would’ve been the most fun of that bunch.

    The LRS’ sound like a good alternative if you have the power to drive’em.

    Good luck with your search.
