    Surround sound

    Glad that shot in the dark ended up being right. Yes, the gear isn't necessarily the problem, it's got to do with the source material, and if your cable provider isn't coughing it up, then it's a moot point. Glad you still enjoy the soundbar though!

    Surround sound

    I don't mean to sound like captain obvious - but I just want to be sure we've covered this: is the source multi-channel, or is it two-channel? Just because you're using a TOSLINK cable doesn't mean the source material is multi-channel.

    RSW-12 price lowered, Phoenix

    The sub is tempting if shipping is an option...

    Popping when Changing AV source R10 Swi

    Could be the cable itself, could be the sub, could be the amp. I'd start with trying a different cable to the sub. It's the cheapest place to start since they're generally only a couple dollars.

    Popping when Changing AV source R10 Swi

    I have the DRX-3.1 and can not replicate the issue with my RSW-15. There's typical timing issues that come up when a sources sound format changes, but that's pretty typical across the board. The R-10SW may be catching noise from somewhere in the line too - which is the most probable cause.
  6. The History Kid

    KG1's with Yamaha RX-777

    Doubtful. The RB-51's should theoretically perform better than the KG-1's. The KG-1.2's I had were really rough around the edges. That's on speaker I won't be going back to any time soon.

    Old Speakers

    Generally $50-$75. The technology in the Quintet's didn't change all that much, but the design sure did.

    just wondering

    I'd normally agree, if the same account wasn't posting javascript codes to known phishing websites on the Emotiva forums...
  9. The History Kid

    just wondering

    I understand asking this on multiple forums and all, but your history on the Emotiva forums begs the question as to what your point is, what your aim is, and if you really intend to do anything with the information you're getting. I counted no less than 3 different questions of the same type over there since January, and at least twice here. Ignoring the fact that you've been injecting XSS content into some of your more recent posts over there, I'd say this sounds fishy - like a robot phish.

    [Sold] Emotiva UPA-2

    Weekend bump!
  11. The History Kid

    RF 7 I speakers, what is worth?

    RF-7's I'd say about $700 depending on finish. Same for the RSW-15. RC-7's go for about $400-$500. Pics?
  12. The History Kid

    AVR and Amplifier into one R-115SW

    Perhaps you should tell us what you're trying to accomplish...because I'm not sure why you'd do this to begin with...

    [Sold] Emotiva UPA-2

    New...ish week bump.
  14. The History Kid

    RF-82ii amp help

    You'd need a digital media player, I'm not sure the options that are available without HDMI are all that cheap. Finding a system with Tidal and Spotify is easy. Amazon, not so much.

    [Sold] Emotiva UPA-2

    Tim, that XPA-2 got me hooked on the XPA amps now. I get why you stocked up on them. lol They'll have to pull these amps from my cold dead hands.
