  1. He unfortunately said it was tool old and the parts to refurbish it are no longer available.
  2. Hi, I have a Marantz AV7704 and Sunfire Signature 400 x 7 Amp powering a Gen 1 RF-7 5.1 setup. I am hearing some intermittent static in my left rear surround and have a feeling my amp is finally dying. I am seeking recommendations for a new amp. I definitely run this amp very hard sometimes and am wondering how many watts I need in a replacement. I use if for home theater and when I demo my system to others I demo everything from Enter Sandman to the Centipede song from Knife Party. Thank You all for your recommendations
  3. I recently received my Triax. It is amazing. Everything I have thrown at it has been amazing. It will keep up with the RF-7s which can be hard to do at really high levels.
  4. I ordered the textured black. Last I heard they would be shipping first week or two in July.
  5. I seriously can't wait for mine to ship. It is very weird after selling my SVS PB2/plus to have no sub at the moment. I believe it will be worth the wait.
  6. I ordered the textured satin black. I have the same finish on my SVS and it has been awesome for durability. You don't ever have to worry about water stains etc.
  7. I ordered a Triax last night. I can't wait for it to arrive.
  8. Yes the Toto BluRay. I thought since I replied to your thread it would include it in my post. Thanks
  9. Mike!, I ordered this from Amazon along with a few others and I truly believe this is the best sounding Blu-Ray I have ever heard. I love how everything sounds ie drums vs guitars etc. I am truly able to push my RF-7s and let the 400x7 Sunfire amp put in some good work lol. Thanks for mentioing this!!!
  10. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has heard what may replace the RF-7 version II and when? They have been out a few years now and I would think something new is around the corner. I love my RF-7 First Generation but still like to think about the future. Thanks for info.
  11. Ear, Did you ever see this post? Thanks for info. Mark
  12. Guess TheEar went MIA....Anyone else have the same sub and RF-7 combo? Thanks for info... Mark
  13. TheEar, I would love for your input on my Sub....Here is what I currently have everything set to: Crossovers: Sunfire : L-R 60 Sunfire : C 80 SVS Sub: Phase 180 Crossover Disabled but knob is set around 85 SubSonic Filter @ 20hz Thank you for your input.... Mark
  14. Hi, There is actually a small lip at the very front of the stand and rubber pads for the bottom the the RC-7....I never had to do anything with the RC-7 except lift it up there and make sure it was square.....It is close to 50lbs...It isn't going anywhere.... Mark
  15. Hi, Mine came shipped with 4.18. So far it's working great.No bugs yet....McMcgoo had sent me a pm about setting the crossover point and he stated the following: "The standard advice is to set your crossover one full octave above your speaker's lowest frequency, 32 Hz for the RF-7. That would put the crossover for the RF-7 at 60 Hz. I use 50 Hz because my processor does not offer 60 Hz. If you use a lower point, you may not get a seamless transition, i.e., you may have a hole in your lower frequencies. As a result, mine are currently at 60. " Mark
  16. Hi, You may want to look at my other post in this forum about finally done with my system. I used a TV wall mount stand for an RC-7 and it works great !!!! Mark
  17. Hi, It's a Yamaha Clavinova Model# CLP122S...Bought it like New from Newspaper for $400 cash..Hope it was a good deal. I have not tried hooking it up but may after you asking about it... Mark
  18. Yeah, It was kind of a "wife" factor about interior decorating and black looking too obvious lol...So far so good....
  19. I am still getting used to the new system. The Sunfire is extremely clean and quiet. The setup is extremely simple with the onscreen display and the trim adjustments on the remote for surround and sub are great. I do quite a bit of adjusting for different inputs ie music or different TV stuff, I just increase the surround trims for lower listening and it is very nice to do it on the fly. I also like some smaller things about the pre-amp (I went from an older Marrantz setup so a lot of the latest systems probably have this stuff), where I can set the power-up settings for a specific input and volume level. I can also set up a Max in case someone is ever watching the house and I don't want things to get out of hand while I am gone. The Amp has all the power I could want and runs very cool. The remote works very well and was super easy to program....enter a 3 digit number and it auto sends a signal to try to turn the device on, if it doesn't, you just enter the next 3 in..It literally took my 60 seconds to program my TV and CD player....The Oppo DVD did not have a code so I just used the learning function and it worked great. I really like the Pro-logic IIx...I listen to most TV programs using this. I used the optical out of the Oppo and the Sunfire takes care of all of the DTS etc very nicely. One thing I have noticed is that the better your equipment the more it shows the flaws of your older music (for me 80s rock, graduated HS in 86). Some sound awesome and some I wish sounded better. However, when you put in new stuff like Krall Jazz, I must say it sounds awesome even though this is not my normal genre of music. It's very clean and sounds great from a whisper volume to really turning things up. I am probably going to send my crossovers to Dean eventually to smooth the highs out a little..I currently have my treble to -2.....but still need to spend more time with everything and really try to finely tune things. I also currently have the RF-7s set to small but continue to play around with the large setting. I have them crossed at 60. I like that Sundfire has a good trade-in program where I can trade my Pre-amp in whenever they come out with a new one and upgrade for around $1k. I can also send the amp or pre-amp anytime and for around $200 they will bring it back to full new specs...That could come in handy 10 years from now.....Let me know if you have any questions... Mark
  20. I never saw it on their web site. It was around 80 bucks and fit 19"-23" or something like that.... Mark
  21. Any sugestions on the toe-in on the RF-7s? Been kinda playin around back and forth..Thx for any ideas.... Mark
  22. Best Buy TV Stand to hold Center Channel...Works and looks pretty great.
