  1. Just a thought but I was wondering if Atmos is for real or simply just adding height speakers and being marketed as Atmos instead of simply Height channels? If so what is the difference in simply adding Heights speakers and Atmos sound wise? I’m thinking about getting a receiver that does Atmos but I wanna make sure it’s not just a bunch of snake oil... Explanations as to the difference and opinions will be well received..
  2. Hey boilermaker nice set up you have... Was wondering how you’re liking that unit so far..? I’m seriously thinking about pulling the trigger on the 758... So I was wondering how you were liking yours? Right now I’m between that or a Marantz sr70$$ unit...
  3. That seems odd to me how they were packaged when I bought my 280s the bottoms were attached already when I opened the box... Were they in thethe original boxes with original packaging...?
  4. Hey WVU thanks for input right now I think I’m leaning towards either the SR 7011 or the SR 7012 certainly can appreciate input and enjoy some of the other post I’ve read from you before.... From what I’ve seen in your other post looks like you really enjoy the 6011 and looks like you have a pretty nice set up as well... Right now I’m trying to figure out with the main differences are between the two I listed above? A review on YouTube says the older one has more power but I don’t think that’s true any insight on this? I do know that the 7011 was a sound and vision topic Pick though
  5. Yeah you definitely have some valid points and bang for buck I definitely agree with you there. I think that’s partly the reason why I’m not sure which direction I want to go. I’m having a hard time letting go of the sound of the NAD. However I definitely think you get a lot more for your money with the Marantz. Definitely appreciate your input. And by the way it sounds like you have a pretty awesome system for just being a noob. Lol
  6. Hey Gary thank you for the in-depth information really appreciate it definitely a lot to consider... I was leaning toward the NAD but now I’m not sure... When you read about it online it sounds like it’s a step up from even xt32, But maybe that’s not quite the case after reading what you said above... I’m currently running RP 280 for my front mains with the 250 C for center... rears are tannoy mercury m1s for now and sub is a dynamo 500... I went from a Denon AVR 2800 to the Denon AVRX 1000 but have not been overly impressed with the newer one even though it’s more modern how are the power is definitely lacking compared to the other one... Awesome system you have by the way...
  7. Unfortunately I don’t have anywhere where that I can hear them both side-by-side... Nonetheless I really appreciate you in put thanks again And I will be sure to update once I make a decision and let you know what I think
  8. Hey isotope thanks for the reply I think I’m only more confused now LOL.... The thing I like about the NAD is the fact that It has DIRAC Which I heard is awesome and Supposedly a cut above Odyssey, But also pretty involved to set up... Are you running regular Odyssey or does yours have odyssey XT 32? My current receiver only has Odyssey XT so I don’t really want to move over to anything else that has Odyssey XT as it would only be a lateral move in my mind.... If you are running Odyssey XT 32 what is your opinion on that...? It does seem like you get more for your money however if you are running Marantz as in channel driven compared to the NAD.... However when I heard the NAB I have to say the sound quality was awesome...
  9. You’re welcome and thanks again I guess no one else has experience with these brands.... lol
  10. Hey Bill thanks a lot for the response I was hoping I’d hear from you I read your post quite often find your information valuable. I was hoping you’d heard Marantz before but nonetheless I’ve been leaning toward NAD anyway... Hopefully I’ll get a few more responses with some opinions out there..... If I’m not Mistaken I believe I’m right down the road from you here in Melbourne Florida you were kissimee right?
  11. Looking to upgrade my receiver looking for opinions between the listed above... I’ve heard both but not side by side... really like the sound of the nad, but pricey, However Marantz is loaded with features and sounds good as well... I am however pretty interested in the Dirac... But not sure I want the complexity.... Would like to hear from some of you that may have owned both however all points of view are appreciated... will be replacing a denon x1000 Which is still good but I’m looking for more power and better room correction...
  12. I have the 280s, they are awesome, much better than the 28f... well worth the higher price...
  13. Are you sure the price is right for the reference premiere does not seem like they would be that much more even there in New Zealand.. I agree with Scrappy-Doo however I have the rp280f and love them if the prices lower than what you're thinking it is and not much more than the reference I would get those reference premiere instead...
  14. Yeah I've been looking a little bit on eBay looks like you can find some that are cheaper, I'm thinking they may have a better overall performance than the 140 140s.... thanks for the input I'm going to take a look at the x-series in a minute....
  15. Thinking about using some Klipsch RSX for Atmos Duty.. currently using the reference Premiere series as mains and wondering if this would be a seamless transition with the RSX... the reference Premiere 140s seem a bit pricey to me.... so I was wondering if the rsx might be a viable option for me since they can be found used for a good bit less than the reference premiere atmos speakers...
  16. Hey Jim, I would go with rp-450c, it is designed to match your to 280fs.... Klipsch made the 450ca version to match the 280fa version because the 280fas actually have the veneer... what you if you didn't know already know the a stands for Atmos... also I'm not sure where you're seeing the pricing but it looks like the ca version is $200 more on Klipsch website.... hope that helps
  17. Hey wuzzzer, reading your post and seeing what you're doing, in regards to your question though... I have the rp-250c and rp280fs after owning kg 4.2 for 20 plus years, and that regard I found that the are rps have a much smoother sound, don't get me wrong I love them but it took some getting used to.... so with that said I'm not sure how 450 C would sound with those rb5 while iv not heard the rb5 I'm thinking they probably have a more aggressive sound than the rps so I'm not sure if it would be a good match for your rb5s.. just my opinion but as I said I've never heard there rb5 only hearsay....
  18. Awesome setup always enjoy reading your post sorry I missed that up above there.... I know what the 51 and 52 are, can you please explain what the first part of your gear is, I'm not completely familiar with the terminology
  19. RoboKlipsch, just curious what are you currently running for your speaker setup Subs, mains Etc...
  20. Robo what is your current set up speaker/sub wise.
  21. I also have the 250 C for my Center and while it's not the same as having 3 280s I think it sounds great, I would see no point in spending more money on that 440 or the 450c, after reading some of robo Klipsch other post I think he would agree as well
  22. Not trying to confuse you any further but I have the 280s and love them, absolutely amazing.... however I agree I agree that you probably can't go wrong with the other options either, I've heard great things about both... I would stay away from the 28fs if possible, and there is a reason you were not that were not that impressed they are not near the speaker compared to what we're talking about here....
