    Which is it?

    It's a stereo receiver with fancy name. Bill
  3. Hey this gives the Super8 5 or 6 more months to get the banquet room done
  4. Not necessarily, while it does require some set up it is not that difficult initially. As far as cost is concerned it depends on what you are comparing. A stock setup, yes. Aftermarket setup probably not. Before converting to the Heil/wings I was using ALK extreme slope networks, B&C DCM 50 midrange drivers, Eliptrac horns and Dayton AMT tweeters. I will let you do the math. To be fair I am using a MiniDSP HD which is inexpensive by comparison. I am very pleased so far with the MiniDSP HD. I am not experiencing any noise from the drivers at idle as some had reported with the non HD version. The daunting part of this for me is setting up the DSP. @Chris A was nice enough to offer his help to get me get beyond the basic setup. However getting the inputs and outputs assigned, and the basic crossover frequencies for each driver is very straightforward. This will get you listing to these in minutes. This will also allow you to get some baseline measurements. The drivers do break in so the initial settings will have to be revisited. That is where I am at now. I took the plunge and went through the instructions on how to generate PEQ settings in REW for the DSP plugin. It took me about 10 measurements to get a good response from the settings. I will post the curve below. I probably still need to tweak the time alignment a little. There is a good thread started by Chris that I will finish going through to make those adjustments soon. I am sure that there are many other tweaks I can make to my crossover file to further improve the sound, but at this moment it sounds nothing short of amazing. Much better than my previous set up. The best part of the DSP network is you can make adjustments, measure, make adjustments all in real time. I did not have to unplug anything or swap cables around to go from measuring, updating the network and listening to music. I think everyone on this forum has the ability to figure this out.
  5. Start at the 110Hz and listen to see if you hear dialog coming from the subwoofer. If you do start dropping down from there. Welcome to the forum. Bill
  6. I was admitted from me walking into the ER to begin with per my Doc. Didn't take long and they got me a room quickly. Minimum of paperwork. I was told the floor I was on was full, but no way to know since I never saw anyone except my nurses and docs. they are very meticulous about keeping you quarantined. The day I left, all was calm outside. No line for testing or admissions.
  7. This one, no question: https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/marsr5014/marantz-sr5014-7.2-ch-x-100-watts-a/v-receiver-w/heos/1.html

  9. This below is a very good deal. A bit more than your budget but a lot of AVR for the price. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/onktxrz830a/onkyo-tx-rz830-9.2-ch-x-120-watts-thx-a/v-receiver-new/1.html Same goes for this. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/yamrxa1080bl/yamaha-rx-a1080-7.2-ch-x-110-watts-a/v-receiver/1.html#!specifications Bill
  10. Hey, I just purchased the Promedia 2.1 THX and set it up per the instructions. The sub worked VERY well but neither satellite worked at all. I could control the volume via the right speaker and light was on, but no sound. I had an old pioneer receiver and decided to test out the satellite speakers. They worked great when connected to the receiver. I am not sure what the problem is exactly? It could be the preamp, speaker wires or the 3.5mm jack. I can't really narrow it down since they all work independently, just not as a single unit. Any help would be appreciated. Klipsch has not responded to my service request, which is not surprising given the current climate. Thanks!
  11. Didn't see any Kimchi either, so still pass.
  12. That is mind boggling. I was just getting ready to ask you if they said there was a known false negative rate, but that answers that. Rudy, were they at full capacity at the hospital you were in? How long to get admitted?
  13. Thank You Mike I could not have hoped ask for a better written assessment to my question. Bravo my friend ! Cheers, Listen to the Music and Stay well Jim
  14. Today
  15. “Cohort” is buzzword du jour.
  16. Again I will state only THE LISTENER can determine if it made a difference to their ears/brain. And they WILL be biased based on how pretty the new wires are and how much money they spent.
  17. I assume you Oppo works like my 203, perhaps a bad assumption. But as TSmith says you can simply use the Opps interface. Start at the main menu and click your way onto the Folder/sub-Folders to find the artist/album you want and let them play. There is typical previous/next/paus/play buttons. Should be fairly obvious.
  18. when someone says antibody, I look in the mirror and think... "that body would repel about anything."
  19. A highly regarded Dutch PA company called Duran Audio - now part of Harman International - developed some loudspeaker systems using the DE75. 25 years after the introduction, quite a few of these systems are still in use today. Especially the mid-high section is praised for its high fidelity. The system shown below was removed from the Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam.
  20. Forget Tiger blood, Mr. Sheen. We need Rudy Blood!
  21. JEESH! Glad to hear you're home and getting well. Can i have some of your antibodies? Old chum, old pal
  22. Well ....We have a bit of home time on our hands now dont we. Finally finished up these Forte II's . They replaced a set of Herseys and I was not ready for what is an amazing upgrade in sound. Truly surpassed my expectations , much more base, super clear highs and mids. The new B&C DE10's are amazing, super smooth and not overwhelming at all. Really, a great improvemnt in that area. Super quality work in the manufacture. I was prepared to put in L-pads if my crossovers were a failure , not needed whatsoever. I guess I got lucky with my dart board design of Caps on my crossover.. 🙂 Even the wife who was a bit annoyed that I was bringing larger speakers in the house said that the upgrade was overwhelmingly good. Didnt hurt that the first thing I played was her favorite CD Cat Stevens. haha..Thanks to all on the fourm that contributed to the ideas that went into this project. Thanks for watching and take care of yourselves in these weird times.
  23. For the same price, which is better? It's for my bedroom, my set up is two r-51m and a r-52 in front and two r-41m as rear speakers. I appreciate any help.
  24. It's easily reversible as well. The tap wire was soldered originally. I unsoldered it and crimped a female spade connector on it so now I can return it to a stock AA configuration without even removing it from the speaker. I doubt I ever will though but someone in the future might like that option.
