    What I Got Today!

    I added some new Blu-rays to the collection
  2. How big is the room and what source are you hearing the issue? Also, I agree, more clarification on “sound goes out”. I ask about the source as I have noticed that my speakers make a crackling sound, aka “breaking up”, when I am listening at higher volume via Xfinity HD. Same speakers, same settings at same volume, using a 4K Blu-ray Disc on my 4K Blu-ray player, I achieve crystal clear audio at any volume I could ever withstand. What source are you experiencing the issue, or does it persist across all sources?
  3. Factory Direct time! Our tireless pursuit for cheaper products, while expecting better performance, is backing ourselves into a corner. The days of going into a store to ask questions, touch and test products is short lived, for the most part. I hope I’m wrong.
  4. Single & Happy: The tale of a simple but fulfilled life. Ask me in about this in a year or two, I just might need a new title😆
  5. Sorry to hear. Wishing you and Ernie’s family all the best.
  6. After 8+ years working for a company/people that I love, it’s time for a career change. I am making about as much as the current company can pay me and truth be told, I’ve never been passionate about Real estate. Good at it, yes. Passionate about it, no. I have 20+ years of customer service/outside sales experience. I am currently the Business Development Manager for a successful real estate/property management firm. I have excellent references and a proven sales history. I also have a resume ready to share. Ideal role would be a territory sales manager/brand ambassador. Would be willing to move for the right position/company. I am currently living in the Seattle area. I would love to turn my home audio passion and sales experience into a career but I know those opportunities are few and far between so I am pretty open at this point. I wasn’t going to post this but I felt you fine people might be looking/know someone that might looking for a professional sales representative. It felt like a mistake, to not post this here, especially since many of you appear to be pretty successful and happy. Long shot, I know but you know the old saying, ”you’ll never get, what you don’t ask for.” I hope I make not violating and forum rules by posting this but I will remove if needed. Thank you all in advance!
  7. This one got my subs moving!
  8. You would be totally fine with adding an XPA-3 into the mix. That beastly amp would relieve a good amount of stress off your Marantz. This would give the 3 most important speakers plenty of power to go as loud as you most likely ever want. The Outlaw would also be a great choice but I like the additional power the Emotiva offers and your a Marantz should have more than enough power to drive the remaining channels. I have owned a few Outlaw and Emotiva amplifiers over the years and they make very fine products. With that said, if I were amp shopping and had a bigger room, I’d probably get this amp, with your budget: https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=15593 Then you would have the Equivalent power/channels to an Emotiva XPA-5 for less money. The Monoprice products have been getting rave reviews lately and seem to be A $/Performance top pick.
  9. I’d rather run no center than use an inferior one. The center is the most important speaker when it comes to home theater and isn’t where you should be tying to cut corners. I am a huge advocate of Klipsch 6” speakers, I think they are some of the best $/performance ratio options. The answer above might not seem all that helpful but that doesn’t change the fact that it was the right answer. This coming from a guy that has owned just about every non Heritage Klipsch center ever made. Do right the first time, my friend. Cheers!

    Robocalls reduced ?

    I am now getting the calls that aren’t robocalls but the person on the other line, every time with a foreign accent, does everything possible to get you to say “yes”. Thankfully, a coworker told me there is a scam out there where they get you to say yes, then use the recording to make unauthorized purchases somehow. Here’s an article on the subject: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/ct-ahp-column-help-squad-tl-0322-story.html%3foutputType=amp I have had two of these scammers hang up on me, when they realized I was messing with them. Let’s put it this way, I used the words “possibly”, “not sure” and “maybe” more during these conversations than the English language normally allows. Are you Dustin? “Not sure”. Is this your cell phone? “Possibly”. Are you the primary person on this account? “Maybe”. They start to get pissed which starts to make me happy. I know keeping them on the line, keeps them from hitting what is undoubtedly a quota for the day😬 I am in sales and rely on my phone to buy speakers. I usually get a 2 - 4 robocalls a day. I usually let it go to voicemail as I am tired of Kate telling me that my business line of credit has been extended. I block the number when I try to call it back and it just hangs up. The only problem blocking the number is that I will need to do that 9,999,999,999 times, using the 10 digit phone numbers. Haha!
  11. Not much help with your question but I needed to comment and tell you that is an awesome looking room!
  12. Not to try and confuse things more but I’d like to throw the Klipsch KL-650-THX into the ring. Stand mount? Absolutely! I haven’t haven’t been fortunate enough to come across any RB-75’s but I have owned the RB-61’s, RB-5’s, RB-3’s, P-17’s and RP-600’s. Any and all of those speakers are fantastic sounding and I am sure you’d very happy with all their performance. There’s just something special about the Klipsch KL-650-THX, especially for movie watching. If I was more of a music person, I might have kept the Palladiums as they are not only beautiful but they also sound spectacular.
  13. I am currently using a Denon 3400 with my Ultra2’s and I am very pleased with the performance. I have owned quite a few pretty nice receivers over the years and these mid to upper end Denons are pretty hard to beat, especially at refurbished pricing.

    What I Got Today!

    I added a couple new pieces to the display cabinet I have been working on. I finally have it to where I am pretty happy. I will be adding and subtracting items down the road but I am just smitten with it at the moment. I will be adding some black curtains to go behind the cabinet in the near future. Now I just wish I had another cabinet to fill[emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
