  1. If your subwoofer has an 'Auto' setting for power, turn it to 'On' instead. The Auto setting waits until the sub senses a bass signal and then turns itself on, causing the delay that you describe. Low pass will adjust at what point the subwoofer stops playing bass sound. Most subs can be adjusted from 40Hz to 120Hz. The number you select on the dial will cause the subwoofer to not play anything above that point. Since your can control the subwoofer's low pass crossover from your receiver, you're better off just turning the low pass on the subwoofer itself as high as it can go, which is probably around the 120Hz range. Then you can make adjustments to the crossover frequency on the fly if you choose to.
  2. If the price difference is only $20, go for the RS-35s. You can always use your receiver to adjust the output level of the surround speakers to match your other speakers.
  3. Well, I checked out the Oppo website tonight only to find that the DV-981HD is backordered. [] But...what's this...factory refurbished players for only $183? And they're in stock?? Dang, where's my credit card!! [] Needless to say, my Oppo is ordered and on its way. [Y]
  4. Either way you describe will work fine, although some subwoofers have an increased output when using a y-splitter (A good thing!).
  5. Its the JVC 1080p 56" model HD-56FN97. That's why I'm thinking their new 1080p player for $229 is the way to go.
  6. I don't think the difference in sound would be huge, but considering the speakers you currently have I think the RS-25s will work perfectly for you!
  7. So does anyone think it would be smart of me to get the 1080p upscaling DVD player for $229, or should I just get the DVD-970HD player for $149?
  8. Very cool to hear. One question...does HDMI output video and audio or video only? I thought it was just video but I wasn't sure.
  9. Since I got my new TV last weekend I'm looking in to getting an upconverting DVD player. I also am concerned with the sound quality on audio CDs. I would probably sell both my Harman/Kardon DVD player and my Cambridge Audio CD player to get a new DVD player, as long as the DVD player played audio CDs well. I really want to get an Oppo after reading all the reviews but I was curious as to anyone's personal experience with them. {edit} I just was looking at their site and I see that they have a new player, model DV-981HD 1080p High Definition Up-Converting Universal DVD Player with HDMI. Its only $229.
  10. I've left my SVS sub plugged in and turned on ever since I got it a few months ago. No problems at all. Also, I personally would rather plug the sub directly into the wall than into the receiver. The receiver's outlets might not be rated to draw that much extra power.
  11. I'm at $550 not including my sub for my Forte IIs ($275) H/K receiver ($175) and Cambridge Audio CD player ($100)
  12. Are you looking to have speakers that you'll listen to in addition to your KLF-30s? I'm not sure what you mean by "Would they work good with the klf-30"? Are you going to use them in a surround system? If you're simply looking to add another pair of speakers to listen to at the same time, I can think of many people on here that would discourage you from doing that. There's many reasons why it usually doesn't sound very good. Now, if you're looking to get more speakers to use as surround speakers that's a different story.
  13. Your center channel is an important speaker in a multi-channel setup. Its probably the most critical one you have. I would imagine that the sensitivity of the RC-52 will be higher than your SF-1s so it will play louder than them. Most receivers have the ability to compensate for that and will let you adjust the level of the center channel to match the output of the other speakers. It probably won't be a case of "Oh my God there's a gigantic difference in sound between the speakers!", more than likely it will be "I can tell there's a difference but I can live with it for now."
  14. Saw $1.89 last night. Average is low $1.90s. It is a nice feeling to see that 1 next to the dollar sign isn't it?
  15. I know exactly what you mean. I see great deals on Klipsch speakers all the time around here. I've passed up mint conditon $500 Belles!! []
  16. Why does looking at that picture give me the urge to make a recording of myself passing gas and then playing it through that horn? [:$]
  17. Here's one on vinyl if you want to spend $180 on it!

  18. Most on here would recommend Marantz. I don't have any experience with Marantz except a component system that I bought years ago. I kind of wish I still had it, as it was a pre-amp, tuner and power amp separate system. I would love to see what it sounds like with my Klipsch!
  19. It depends. If you think there's a possibility in the future that you might upgrade your other speakers to Reference speakers, go for the RC-52. If you think you'll probably stick with the Synergy line now and in the future go for the SC-1 or even SC-2.
  20. Yikes! Maybe it would be better if Amy hid each person's post count! [] []
  21. Are you getting rid of your KLF-30s or are you looking to get a second pair for a second audio system? If you like the 3 way design of the KLFs, Fortes or Chorus' are excellent examples that can be had for $400-800 depending on model and condition.
  22. I know I've got a ways to go to catch up to certain people here, but it seems like only yesterday I was signing up and making my first few posts. Fortunately I've learned a lot and have been able to 'meet' several very nice people on here!
  23. I just received this disc in the mail today. I'm home on my hour supper break and thought I'd throw it in for a listen. I literally have been looking for years for a well-recorded CD of orchestral music that has a 'you are there' recording level. Well, I'VE FOUND IT! The bass that is on this CD is some of the loudest, lowest, most intense that I've ever heard or FELT! Thank you very much justin_tx_16 and TheEar for recommending it!!
