  1. I had the exactly same experience when I ordered a new Lexicon RV-6 with Dirac as replacement for my old Harman AVR 7550HD. Long story short: I returned the Lexicon and keep being happy with my 11 years old Harman and just praying that he last some more years!
  2. I can just write about my experience with the RP-280F. First I had the RP-450C, which was the best matching center out of the Klipsch line for the RP-280F and the center was really great. But there was always a little man in my ear who told me, there is some space for improvement. I'm not saying the center was bad, I just had the impression there could be done something a little bit better. So I was looking for a single RP-280F as center use. And what can I say: I'm really happy, that I've tried it out. There was a real improvement. Not a huge one, because the RP-450C was a great center, but with three same speaker in the front, I couldn't hear any differences anymore. It's just like the center disappeared an there is now just one huge speaker in the whole front line. It doesn't matter from which direction the sound is coming, it sound always completely the same. Also a big improvement for music, because I'm listening music in surround with the Logic7 DSP. So fo me it's clear, if there is any possibility, I would choose always the same speaker for the front over a dedicated center speaker.
  3. Just found a "new" complete finished power-amp with the TPA-3255 board. The board looks also a bit different then the "standart" cheap china boards, which u see usally. https://de.aliexpress.com/item/4000224185463.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.541961d65IRbaa&algo_pvid=d8e4c197-e3e3-4edc-b545-6865f269bd1f&algo_expid=d8e4c197-e3e3-4edc-b545-6865f269bd1f-4&btsid=f8a3f060-d34b-4e71-b7e3-47fea32bf153&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_52
  4. The Ncore is actually ofc one of the best meassuring Class-D amp's on the market. If not the best. Unfortunately I couldn't hear one yet. The only thing some peeps are mentioning is, that they sound a bit "boring". But like I said, never heard one, so can't rate this...
  5. The TPA3255 looks really interesting. Until 100 W @ 8Ohm even better meassurement than the Crown XLS 1502. What would you prefer for 5 channel use? One big power supply, or one power supply for each board? 3 boards would be enough i think, not sure if it makes sense to use 5 boards in btl mode. Fun ofc, but maybe a bit too much😅
  6. Anyone tried this ones: https://connexelectronic.com/product/ta3020-audio-amplifier-v4b/ http://connexelectronic.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/TA3020v4.pdf
  7. Yea, this amp looks really interesting! Are there any good sources, where I could read more about the build and the mod?
  8. Is there anything better than the Crown XLS 1502 in his price range as Class-D? I'm looking around for a 5-channel Class-D power amp. Speakers are the RP-280F as fullrange without sub in a HT-setup. Actually got 3 of them in the front, but will once replace my surrounds also with RP-280F's. So 5x RP-280F in a fullrange config😉 Ofc i know the Hypex Ncores or ICEPower 1200's are really nice, but over my planed budget. 3x the Crown XLS 1502 would be around max. budget, so I'm looking around is there something else in this price range or even cheaper.
  9. Of course. I have hooked it up yesterday and I think it will stay. The "sound"-difference compared to the RP-450C is not HUGE, but audible, so I've got what I wanted, the est matching center for the RP-280F's. The biggest difference are the vocals, which are now a bit more voluminous and it just sounds a big "bigger" now. It's hard to describe. I mean, the 450C is a really great center, but this one makes some thinks just a little bit better and sounds a bit more like "big cinema".
  10. Hey guys, long time no action here, but now I'm finished: Here are some pic's of my Klipsch "RP-280C" 😉
  11. I would try an AppleTv 4k. I have one of them also, and I'm streaming everithing from my NAS. And you can select the screen resolution u want. I tryed once to hook it up on my old FHD TV in Bedroom and worked well. You will just need an app like Infuse.
  12. Hy guys Does anyone know, what's the difference between this 2? (Except the colour of the woofers ofc ;-P) I compared them, and they seem to be completly the same... PS: What do you also think as using one of them as rears? I have RP-280F and RP-450C front. My sofa is completly at the wall, and the room is too short, to put it away from the wall. Next problem is, that left and right of the sofa are doors on boots side around 10 inch away, so there is also no space to put a speaker there. Just on the wall directly behind the sofa it would be possible.
  13. If your are planing to put them into a bookshelf, I would pick always the RB-81 Mk2 because of the port design. I compared once the RB and RP series, and the RB allows it to put them much closer to a wall or something else than the RP series, who like to have more space for "breathing" around them.
  14. Anybody has any experience with a Harman Kardon Signature 1.5 Amp? Maybe compared the the Emotiva XPA line?
