  1. congrats-you'll really enjoy them for sure. I know I have been enjoying mine for the last 6 moths or so. we love pics😷
  2. interesting- so placing isolation pads on the bottom of speakers improves bass response & clarity according to the article. might have to try this on the cheap then. mine sit on hardwood flooring.
  3. nice setup. be careful of all that sun hitting the left speaker day in and day out. the sun can reak havoc on a speaker finish. destroyed my brothers KG4's.
  4. should sound the same. Its the same speaker. Although the piano black finish seems to encase the speakers nicer I think ( seams on outer top edge). I have a 250f setup in piano black and its a very nice look.
  5. congrats on your new speakers. still enjoying mine and still playing around a bit on exact position. One thing with these speakers- If a recording is mastered well it shines. if not- watch out, very revealing. So far only sacd & cds. haven't taken the vinyl plunge....yet. I'm sure vinyl will sound great too if done right.
  6. thanks everyone for the kind words, glad to see this thread alive again- always like looking at setups, two channel and home theater. So many great ones here. Of course always enjoy your videos youthman. Hoping to get some better and a few more up to date pictures soon. keep them coming!
  7. ok I'll bite.sorry for the lousy phone pics. room is set up for 9.2.6. currently using 7.2.4. screen is stewart Cima scope 133"
  8. I agree it is frustrating. Of course as we all know a lot of factors also play into it, the mastering of the recording, room acoustics, speaker placement etc. I also find that many recordings I really like just don't sound great to my ears listening on my Forte III's. I just can't get past how it sounds. If thats the case I usually play them in my multichannel setup in 7-channel stereo. But when a recording is done right it can't be beat on the Forte's. I don't do vinyl so I am constantly looking in to the best version of cd mastering I can find or maybe the SACD version of it, which of course can much more expensive.
  9. congrats on your new gear. Great sounding speakers. I got the Forte III's from Cory about a month ago- also in black ash and have been really enjoying them. I'm just using them in a two channel- no sub setup. Feeding them a well mastered recording is heaven. Like you I have been on a music buying spree lately listening to different artists that I usually haven't listened to in the past because of the new setup. Enjoy!
  10. I agree with yamaha. pairing a A-S801 with Forte III's. I know not as big as the cornwalls but they Gel nicely together I think.
  11. yes I have it set to HDMI output 1 & 2. I also have HDMI control (ARC) off since the projector doesn't need or use it. Not concerned about the resolution on the 2nd monitor since I only need or will use it for navigating through disc menus not for any movie watching or anything. Its puzzling for sure. Seems like I will hook up a second small monitor for navigating music menus but just unplug the projector from the receiver everytime I do this. pain in the butt, but so far I have not come up with a solution. i really shouldn't have to unplug anything- but not sure why the projector plugged in and turned off is preventing any audio.
  12. Not sure what is going on. But basically my goal is to be able to listen to music with cds, sacds without having to turn on my projector. I know in blu-ray audio you need a monitor to navigate the menus. The issue is no music or audio comes out of my home theater speakers when projector is turned off. Gear: yamaha A3060 receiver and sony x800 4k player. player hooked into receiver with premium cert. HDMI. Projector hooked into output 1 with celerity 40ft cable. Testing: since receiver has dual HDMI output I can configure the second one to main and basically have two monitors at the same time thus So I hooked up a small TV to HDMI output 2. Tv plugged into HDMI 2 only - picture and music play TV plugged into HDMI 2 and projector into HDMI 1 - does not work, no picture or audio ( audio came on for a second and cut off) Tv plugged into HDMI 1 only - everything works TV plugged into HDMI and projector HDMI 2 - does not work so it seems whenever the projector is plugged in I get no audio. I have similar smaller setup with another yamaha receiver and I never have to turn the tv on to listen to music. Since the celerity is fiber optic that uses an HDMI adapter on the end of the cable to plug in- I wonder if that has anything to do with it. just guessing of course. I contacted yamaha but the person that got back to me didn't seem to grasp the situation. I may call back and try again with them. any ideas or suggestions?
  13. good stuff. loving this thread already. I'm always checking out demos on youtube. Nice to see & hear other set ups
