  1. Any way you can exchange the 140s for the 500sa? You could set them to "surround" and use them as surrounds and then later if you wanted use them for atmos as heights
  2. i'd put them at #2 using a mount you can angle slightly, this way it seems like the sound is coming from a higher area. Unfortunately these only have keyholes. I did this method with some success, this is as high as i could get with my ladder. They keyhole makes things difficult. Also because the bottom is so long you can only angle it so much. I used some cheap monoprice mounts. haven't done my rears yet. i put the switch to the surround setting and i think i have these at 80hz.
  3. I have 2 up top in the front as "heights" using the "surround" switch but when i did my audyssey setup i set them as top (not height). i think i'm using 80hz for them.
  4. +1 on the RS7s if you're selling, let me know!
  5. Just a suggestion, i moved my RS7s to the rear for a 7.1 + atmos system and they sound great during atmos. If you wanted just keep them if you're getting new side channels anyway and you can put them in the rear (if you have room)
  6. I use the 8012 for my RF7s. Hooking up 4 rp500sa's this weekend for 11 7.4 atmos. Love this receiver, HUGE upgrade over the old denon's (came from a 4308)
  7. I'm in boston, if you need i'm selling my Denon 4308 receiver if you're looking for something basic to start with.
  8. I upgraded to a Marantz 8012 to get some Atmos action (and also because i was able to get a good deal), so I am now parting with my Denon 4308. This has been an absolute beast in my system since the day i got it (original owner). If you're running up to a 7.1 system this thing will power any klipsch system. This powered my 2 RF7s, RC7, 2 RF35s, and 2 RS7s and never got warm to the touch! Comes with both original removes and audyssey calibration Mic. I can try and find the manual (not sure if i still have it, but it would be available online). Has a Phono Turner for record player and 4 HDMI inputs as well. (note this will not pass the new 4k/HDR formats as far as i'm aware) But for a 1080 TV and gaming and blu-rays this will run absolutely anything you throw at it. One of the last great Denon receivers that was built in Japan. It's been 10 years and only a few of their new flagships are still produced there. Any question feel free to ask me. this unit is in perfect working condition. I'd rather not ship, so locals only for now (unless we work something out).

  9. I was seriously considering last years models from that site as well when I was shopping. For the price point, the 7011/7012 over the new ones, i was losing maybe 1 or 2 new features but saving a ton of money. The ONLY reason i went with an 8012 is i found out my brother's company gets a discount from D&M and is available to direct family as well. But i highly suggest the idea of cutting the price in half getting a 1 or 2 year old model (if there's no new features you absolutely need). For the price savings you could even do the 7703 processor and use the difference on an amplifier. Since i was doing atmos the price of multiple amps put that out of reach for me, so the 8012 made more sense to have a one box solution (and enough power to drive Klipsch without issue). If i had more demanding speakers i'd have to consider differently running all of them from a single box.
  10. I've never used a Rotel, but always heard they sounded cold with Klipsch. I can definitely attest that my new Marantz receiver brings out a whole new beast in the mid-range from my old Denon
  11. I started another thread but didn't get much response, but would be relevant here. I've had my RF7s for 10 years and while i wouldn't want to spend any money to upgrade or change to the RF7s i was wondering what mods people have done to these to "freshen" them up. Does any maintenance after 10 years need to occur? If i wanted to upgrade the xover how much would that be? What other mods can be done? Should the small cheap monster cables inside be replaced and better connected (mine seem to fall out now occasionally) What about the foam insulation inside if it's been shifted around? Just looking for people's opinions and history on what's been done. i'm extremely happy with these speakers and my setup, but if i can tweak here and there for minimal additional cost i'm all for it!
  12. Marantz and Denon are owned by the same parent company, so they should be reflecting their "specs" similarly, maybe you can find better details in a different area online. FWIW, i went from an older Denon 4308 to the Marantz 8012 to run my Klipsch 7 channel System. I upgraded because i got a 4k tv and needed more HDMI inputs and better passthrough and also to eventually add some atmos speakers. What always interested me was people saying Marantz is good for Music and Denon for movies. That honestly makes no sense to me. If something is "better" for music (more clarity, wider soundstage, more dynamic, better sound) then isn't it also better for movies? I played a 7.1 DTS soundtrack from ant man and was completely floored by the marantz. It's also got a lot more mid-range than my old denon so music and records sound phenomenal on it. The sound seperation and presence in the surround channels is also much more present, but i'm also updating from a 10 year old receiver. I honestly don't know if the comparable denon line would be any different from this marantz i have, but i don't think you can go wrong with either. Klipsch are pretty easy to run and efficient, so i think it comes down to budget and features for you. If you got any questions feel free to ask! I've also really enjoyed the HEOS implementation (never thought i'd even use this), but in 5 minutes i was streaming Pandora to it and using their "enhancer" and the sound and ease to put that on while working fomr home some days has been really nice (both denon and marantz will have that)
  13. https://usa.denon.com/us/product/hometheater/receivers/avr4308ci Upgraded to a Marantz 8012 for Atmos and finally parting ways with my Denon 4308. This has been a workhorse and shows no signs of slowing down. Been in my rack since it was purchased, original owner. One of the last ones made in Japan until recently. Absolute beast of a receiver. Local pickup for now, looking for $500 or best offer. I have the radio transmitter, both remotes, and the audyssey calibration mic. I may have the original manual as well, but also available online.

    The key is not having a subwoofer! Even though the RF7s get low, i keep it in check and usually only blast during reasonable hours... Also need to update my sig... the marantz 8012 is in and I couldn't be happier
