  1. Sounds like self-pity...If I were you I would get off the internet and then decide to live life to the fullest--You could die tomorrow and surely you don't want your last shit to be found on here. That's my advice and have a good one.
  2. Not true RMS, insufficient frequency response for audio use. What a drag because it was considerably cheaper than the other one recommended. Is there another decent unit that isn't over $100 that would serve the purpose of conducting this test? It's not that I can't afford it as much as after I am done it won't get much use afterward. Thanks.
  3. Thank you for the recommendation. Longevity isn't as much of a concern as making it easy for a novice to set up and understand. If there is something that would only last for possibly 5 to 6 years and do the job as well for considerably less, it would be more justifiable for the budget. If not, I can pick up that one because I am curious how much power I use.
  4. I am heading to Lowes and wonder if someone could recommend a good voltmeter for this test--If not, what should I look for? Thanks.
  5. I am a multichannel guy and definitely want to try this test.....First I need to pick up a volt meter. I gather I can pick up one at Lowes?
  6. Fwiw, I'm not sure if the above creates an accurate picture of how the lines came about and there are quite a few Reference speakers you left out. In the beginning there were the RP series and in the middle you missed the RF-83/RF-63 series of floor standers. There was also the RF-7 Classic that was between the RF-83s and RF-7IIs. Regardless, I don't think that was actually the OPs question but wanted to share my 2 cents.
  7. No. We do have our front RF-7s on 3" risers because of an obstacle in one's location. Right now we are using RB-75s as side surrounds on barstools and have rear RB-75s tilted down on shelves in the rear....We also have RB-5s tilted down that are being used as heights. {Note: both the rear and height speakers are on their side.}
  8. Fwiw, I used RF-3s as side surrounds and bought some cheap footstools to get them as the same height as our front RF-7s. I then placed 4 marble floor tiles around the legs and it looked like part of the speaker.
  9. I agree and instead would ask what would you be using it for and with what components--For Blu-ray I can't see spending a lot of money but if one were wanting to play SACDs, there are some decent priced (($100) players and if you want to play DVD-A along with it that player can be had for $200. If you need multichannel/RCA capability it will cost you more, but with HDMI technology for most that is a non-issue unless they have older formats and players.
  10. For the record Sony has several lower priced players that play SACD (it was their format) but folks run into problems finding players that play DVD-Audio. The cheapest Bluray player I've seen that plays both is the Sony UHP-H1 and it has just been discounted to under $200. I've had mine for about 10 months and like it a lot and play all of these on a nightly basis...In fact, I think I will crank it up now and enjoy a nice Belhaven listening to some tunes!
  11. Honestly don't most Blu ray players play that format the same? I realize that 4K players playing that material will be cleaner but on standard Blue ray there should be no issues.
  12. Hey, I heard those systems in the DFW area. Hope things are going well and hadn't heard that you moved to Austin.
  13. Fwiw, here is a thread I started on the subject:
  14. I listen to a lot of DVD-Audio and SACDs along with Blu-ray concerts and use the Sony UHP-H1 and it works great if you are using HDMI...I also saw that it recently went on sale for under $200.
