  1. Low Angeles. The speakers have never been moved since taken from boxes. The speakers are used 95% for tv and about 2 hours a week on music at -40 dB on a marinara 7007 with an Emotva Xpa3 forthe front speakers. They get turned up loud for a song or 2 and are clear as a bell.. I may give them to my son, but wouldn't ship them if I decide to sell. I had a chance to play the Ohm Walsh 2000s and they are incredible sounding. They work well with the Rc62 and Rs52s in surround for music and By. But when I played a record in Pure stereo and turned the Emltiva/Marantz up loud around 0-+5 dBm it was amazing I backed down from comedy sound to -10db-20db and could listen at any volume without fatigue. Great speakers. I give a lot of credit to the Klipsh Rf82s because they are crystal clear when using the Emotiva Xpa3 for the front stage and the difference between $1000 for Rf82s and $2800 for Ohm Walsh 2000s is significant.

    Oppo 203

    Just added an Oppo 203 to my system. I have a Marantz 7007 receiver which has a built in Ak24 bit dac, the Oppo has an Ak32 bit dac. I'm running rc cables on the Oppo for7.1 analog sound and I think it is a great improvement for music. The techs at Oppo told me they thought the improvement in sound between the 203 andI the 205 was only about10%. Can anyone give me their thoughts on the difference when playing 5.I music in analog?
  3. I bought the 203 before they ran out. The Ak 32 bit dac is better than the Ak24 bit sad in the Marantz 7007. Glad I got the pool. Idon't spoke to Oppo tech support and 2 different techs said other than the balanced stereo output the sabre dad was only 10% better in the 205 compared to the 203. Also just received a front set of Ohm Walsh 2000 speakers. The Rf7s weren't wife friendly.

  6. I'm thinking of selling a set of 9 year old Rf82's. I'm the original owner and they are in great shape and sound awesome. What should I ask for them?

  8. I'm Going to use Ohm Walsh 2000 speakers for my right and left front and move the Rf82's to the rear with the Rs52's. Will the Rf82's work well behind a couch with3 feet of room?
  9. I want to upgrade my stereo and have read great things about oppo bluray 205 players. I listen to 2000+ cds and have been told this would work better for music. I had thought of upgrading the front speakers, but the Rf7s are too large. I have a Marantz 7007 receiver with an Emotiva Xpa3 amp for the front 3 speakers. I have reference matched set of, Rf82,Rc62, Rs53 and a 350 watt rxd12 sub. I don't play the music very loud but like a warm sound. I thought of getting Ohm Walsh 2000 front speakers as the Klipsch speakers that are better than the rf82s are too big. Does anyone have any thoughts. The main use of the system is home theatre .

  11. I stated with an Denon 1804 90w and then I bought a Marantz 7007, 125 x7 and an Emotiva Xpa3, 200wx3 channels. The difference between each upgrade in power was significant. It wasn't louder just much better sound especially with music. I just brought my turntable down after 30 years in the attic and the quality of music sound from the records is so much better.
  12. I'm impressed with your great equipment. I recently pulled my Sanyo Tpx2 turntable down from the attic. I have a set of Rf82, Rc62, Rs52 and sub with a Marantz 7007 and an Emotiva Xpa3. The sound is much better than the remastered xxx I've played. I have thought of getting Rf7s with the matching center and surrounds, but they are so much bigger I've always hesitated. Since I can't play the stereo too loud due to the look I'd get from my wife is my setup good or do you guys have any suggestions. I've even looked at Ohm Walsh2000 as an option. Any suggestions are appreciated.
  13. I bought rf82, rc62,rs52 With an rw12d sub 7 years ago. I had a demon 1804 90 ampbut wasn't satisfied with higher volume for music upgraded to denon 3311 125 amp and then bought an Emotive xpa3 amp to power the 3 front speakers. Now the speakers kept opening up and revealing sounds I never heard before with each upgrade. The amp matters I now added a Marantz 7007. I love it
  14. Thanks I didn't even look at the pc 12 plus when I was on the site. I think you guys are right this looks what I should get. Thanks.
  15. I don't think I will get the opportunity to do a side by side test. So if the sb2000 or pb1000 would work they would be my first choices. If not I would consider the pb2000.
  16. will the sb2000 be better than the RW 12d even though it's not ported or is the SP1000 going to be enough sub. If t's not enough I would have to think about the sp2000. I could move the tv stand out further from the wall. Most of the listening is to tv and movies. I do have 2000 cd's ripped to my computer and listen to music for about an hour every day. I also have several DTS cd's and Music Dvd's that I like to listen to in surround sound so I know the SB2000 should be a big improvement in the sound for music.
  17. Thanks for the advice. I want to place the sub behind the tv and the pb2000 is a bit large and as I said heavy to move. Are the sb 2000 and the sp1000 going to be a noticeable improvement over the rw 12d sub that I already have? I don't want to buy used I have had numerous problems with other subs breaking and then having to lift them and take them into be repaired. Will only buy new with warranty.
  18. I have unhooked all the cables and reinstalled the speaker wires. I only have the rear surrounds hooked up to the unit. The three front are run by my Emotiva XPA3. Ernest has told me he will approve taking the unit to a local service center. It's 30 miles away and I plan on taking it in next Wednesday. I will let everyone know what they say. The code for protection mode came up as DC. Ernest told me it meant that there was a current problem. The two surround speakers are properly wired with no contact between the wires. I have run Audyssey to verify that the wires are not crossed. I find it hard to believe it is the speaker wire or the current. I bought a new monster av800 surge suppressor two weeks ago to make sure that wasn't a problem. I googled overprotection problems with denon receivers and found a repairman who said the problem on his machine was the connection built into the receiver. If this is an intermittent problem as it can run for 3 to 4 weeks without going off and then go off 4 times in a 24 hour period. Each time you have to reset the microprocessor and run audyssey again. It is very frustrating and if it happens when my wife is using the tv she doesn't know how to get it to work again. thanks for your comments.
  19. The stereo is in a 20 by 20 Family room with 8 foot ceilings. I placed the tv and speakers in the corner pointing out at an L shaped couch about 12 feet from the speakers. At least that's what Audysey measured them at.. Does this info help. I am currently running the Klipsch rw12d sub that came with the RF82 system.
  20. Thanks for the info. The sub is just too heavy for me to handle. I am recovering from a 3 level cervical spine fusion and have had 2 back surgeries. I can't move anything like that. I looked on the SVS website and I was thinking about the ported or the unported sb 2000 or the sp1000. What do you think would one of these work with my set up? thanks.
  21. I just ordered at Marantz 7007 receiver and I would like to update my klipsch RW12d sub woofer with something that will play music as well as movies at a higher level. Also the stereo is in a 20 by 20 Family room with 8 foot ceilings. I placed the tv and speakers in the corner pointing out at a l shaped couch about 12 feet from the speakers. At least that's what Audysey measured them at. Any suggestions. I can spend up to $1000. I have a klipsch RF 82, Rc 62, rs 52 surround speakers, Can you guys help me out. I don't have to spend $1000 I am ok with value as long as they sound great. Thanks. Joel
  22. Great speakers, I bought an RF82 set up with a denon 3311. I decided after listening to the system and read some posts about emtiva. I took the plunge and bought an emotive xpa3, 200 watts a channel and use it on the front and center speakers. It made a big difference. Much smoother sound for music and tv. I don't know if it will make a difference with the rf7's but there are a lot of people on the forum who will know. good luck
  23. I have a Denon 3311 that keeps going into protection mode. I bought the unit 3 1/2 years ago and after a year and 3 months it quit. I sent it in under the 2 year warranty and received a refurbished unit in return. The unit went into protection mode while still under warranty and I was told to reset the microprocessor, give the unit more air circulation and it would be fine. The unit cntinued to do this and occasionally called in to tell them that I thought something was wrong. I was then told to do a hard reset to reset the unit to factory specs. I again kept calling and in February asked to upgrade this to a supervisor as I was certain that there was something wrong. The supervisor never returned the phone call. The problem continues to this day. Last weekend it happened 3 x in 24 hours and I started calling again this week. The first tech told me to take it to a repair shop as it is now out of warranty. I explained it was in warranty the first time I called. I asked to speak to a supervisor and he said that they would call back in 48 hours. I didn't get off the phone and kept talking until he finally got a supervisor on the phone. After two hours the supervisor put me back on the line with the same technical support person to troubleshoot. So now I'm on the phone with the same guy who told me the unit was broken and out of warranty. He tells me how to find out what the protection mode code is. I wonder why they didn't do that the first time I called. He has me pull every cable and speaker wire off the unit and do press the menu and status and turn the power on. Then press the status. It gives me no code because as I had told him several times I have reset the microprocessor last weekend. He finally tells me to call back next time it goes into protection mode and give him the code and he will pass it on to Ernest the Supervisor. I left the receiver on that night without the tv on and the volume on 0. It went into protection mode twice. I called the code in and the tech didn't know what it meant and Earnest wasn't working and to call back on Saturday. Today is Saturday and I just got off the phone with the tech and Earnest called me back. He told me in a conversation on Thursday that if the code showed that it wasn't the cabling it had to be the unit and he would take care of it and honor the warranty. I just got off the phone with him and he told me the DC code means that the current must be spiking. I explained to him that I just put a new monster power supply in and put the old on in a spare room with a Denon 1804 hooked up to it. So basically he now needs to talk to his supervisor and call me back by Wednesday. I also didn't mention this unit is only powering my surround speakers I have an emotive XPA 3 200 watt amp powering the front 3 speakers. My concern is that if they decide to honor the warranty I'm more than likely going to get another refurbished unit. I know some refurbished units are just returned units with nothing wrong with them however they havn't made this unit for a while. I don't want somebody else's headache. Can anyone suggest a good substitute for around $1000 dollars. I have a set of Klipsch RF82, RF62,RF52 and RW12d sub. I looked at Marantz 7007. I like Nad but it may be too expensive. Does anyone have any experience with Denon and making things right or who else to talk to there?
  24. My Denon Receiver, its a 4 year old AVR 3311 and is turning off and going to a red blinking power button. It has started to happen more frequently and it isn't hot. After 10 months Denon replaced the unit when it quit. It makes one wonder if these units are reliable. I need a unit that will act as a preamp as I use my emotive 3 channel to run the front three speakers, Klipsch RF-82's, and 62 center. Does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement. I have a Klipsch set up of RF82, 62 center, 52's for the surrounds and an RW 12d subwoofer. I like the warm sound of Denon but the reliability is lacking. The replacement for this model is the 4000 model and is $1299. thanks
