    Looking for a sub

    So I finally got a pair of heresys. I have now figured out why my music has sucked for the past few years. I have a pair of advent legacys that I got new in 1988. They were a great speaker and I loved the sound. A few years back the foam went out and I had the money so I upgraded to some RF-82 II's. The sound seemed a little off. I just chalked it up to a better speaker is just revealing my badly recorded music? So I have been in the process of re recording all my cd's in lossless WAV. Now I knew the heresy was going to sound better and of course all the mid and highs sounded as expected BUT the bass was surprisingly better also. So....here is what I am guessing. I don't like ported bass speakers? Don't get me wrong the RF's sound great in 7.1 surround for movies. I love it for that BUT they never sounded good for music to me. **************Ok long winded and to the question. So I really like that 70's music bass drum thump. I think a closed speaker reproduces that sound better for my ears. So what sub for the heresys? I don't really know what the hertz break is but I like the bass output from the heresys for 60's-70's-80's rock and roll. I don't know what you call it but not the low bass but that bass drum that you feel in your chest. Not the makes your windows vibrate kind. What kind of sub will kind of stay out of the way for that type of music BUT will be able to come in for todays music like dubstep that kind of bass. Would a ported or non ported work for this? Am I crazy or is this possible?

    SW-8 II

    Anyone ever heard an SW-8 II? http://www.klipsch.com/sw-8-ii/details Any Idea what one is worth? Would the Bass reflex via passive radiator be better for midbass than a ported sub?

    Tube Amp

    What would be a good entry level/starter tube amp. Under $500? It would be needed for Heresys and a sub (2.1 sound). Would like to be able to run a HD through USB with WAV music. Anyone in the SLC, Utah area that would be willing to let me listen to their tube amps?

    Tube Amp

    So would I assume a $525 DIY kit have the sound of $750 complete amp? I do plan on doing some DIY subs so this might just be up my alley a DIY amp. BUT is an am like this just for 2 speakers? A left and a right? How would you get a sub to work with this. Also I plan on doing a 18's DIY sub. I noticed on the specs for the amp it does not go below 20hz would this be a problem? I have no problem with the DIY part of soldering, nailing, gluing, wiring and what not I just don't get all the oms, push-pull, matched quad, bias stuff. Give me a pile of crap and tell me to put it together I am good. You want to know how it works well.....you are on your own

    Looking for a sub

    Yes I will be doing the DIY 18's. But for now I did set two of my RW 12d's up with the Heresys. I put them at the depth setting and 40 hz. They seem to be ok for now. But that has been for radio listening only so far. The move is going slow. But yeah I will do one DIY 18 and if I like it we I might have to sell the RW's But I guess that means I would have to build what like 5 of the 18's?

    Looking for a sub

    My budget could be flexible. I have plenty of room. The center of the new house is a room that is a little over 30x30 feet about 1000 square feet? Its like a kit-din-liv-den type of room. I will already have 4 RW 12d's for the HT. So what would be a good mid bass sub that could do a little deep when called upon? I will have a separate seating position from the HT.
  18. Just got the Oppo 103D the other day (12-27-13) off of amazon. My first impression on the D part (darbee) is that it is a waste of money. I am using this on the HT in the sig. I played with the darbee on/off a few times and a certain points you could see doing a little something? I am going to say if you have a good receiver, TV and BRP the whole darbee part was a waste of my $100. As for the player itself I am happy with that. So far the things I like. Plays WAV on the USB. Any one know the max USB thumb drive you can use? Does Utube. Seems like it will play any type of CD. But one thing I really like is I have a 7.1 system and when I was using my PS3 and played a 6.1 BRD it did not send any sound to the rear surround. With the oppo it will force the the 6th track to both the rear surround. One thing I don't like is it does not do the Amazon videos. Already have it so there is no way I will pay for netflix also. I am really surprised how this thing is packaged. It is the kind of packaging you would expect when you paid $600 for it. And to boot it comes with a carry bag. Not sure I would ever use it however. Back to the Darbee. With my TV is seems useless. But may be it is designed to be used for crappy TV's? Or maybe poor source material like older DVD's? All I know is with my TV and a new Blu ray it seems pointless. Anyone have any real luck with the darbee doing something really good? I was thinking of putting my music on a 2 TB SSD drive and hook that up to the USB. Anyone tried this? Be nice to find out if this will work before I drop the money on the hard drive.

    Hey all, Would like some advise

    Based on these reviews, I highly recommend this $400 HDMI cable from Denon: http://www.amazon.com/Denon-AKDL1-Dedicated-Cable-Version/product-reviews/B000I1X6PM/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?showViewpoints=1 The reviews are worth reading. I have to say those are some of the funniest reviews I have ever read on amazon.

    Oppo 103D first impressions

    So I went to Best buy today and got one of these on sale for $99. A 2TB portable HD. Works great. I put about 300 GB of music, photos and videos from my home computer on it. Took about an hour at most. Most everything plays fine. A few videos don't but not sure what file type they are yet. Its nice because it is only one cord to use it and it is small. http://www.amazon.com/Passport-Portable-External-Storage-WDBY8L0020BBK-NESN/dp/B005HMKKH4

    Oppo 103D first impressions

    So are you saying you just plug this hard drive in the to usb and it works? If thats the case this is what I will be doing. Or this if it works. Has anyone done this with one of those USB powered SSHD's? The ones that don't have a second power cord. Right now all of my music it at about 69 GB's and that is at crappy mp3 or less quality. I am planning on redoing all my music so I am thinking I am going to need a HUGE amount or room. Seeing on how I will be going from an average of 6 mb per song to 60 mb per song? So doing the math I will still end up with less than 1 TB of music and can use the rest of the space for photos and movies since the oppo will play them also.

    Oppo 103D first impressions

    I am interested in the Hard Drive hookup. How well does it work, how good is the interface and how easy is it to use? Bump Any one know if this is possible?

    Here is what I got. Had them for 2 years and no problems. I have been happy with them. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FBLOAY/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004K6MCL0/ref=oh_details_o04_s01_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Plus last year I had a new power panel put in for the house. For just a little more money I had the guy put in a whole house surge protector and a new grounding rods.

    Denon DBT-3313UDCI Vs Playstation

    I just got the OPPO 103D a few days ago. So far seems like a good player. But save a $100 and get just the 103. I don't see any benefit of the darbee. But then again i think the 103D has some 3D stuff the other does not. It compared to the cheap blu ray i had. The cheap one would not do 7.1 sound. It compared to the PS3. Off had one difference is when playing a 6.1 blu ray the ps3 would cut sound to the two rear surround speakers and the oppo forces that 6th channel to both rear surround in a 7.1 system. Just in general the more expensive ones will have a lot more video processing stuff.
