  1. Bill I know you have the 83’s and the 75s, What do you say one is better than the other? Only asking since I have the 280s and I would think they would be comparable to your 83’s...?
  2. No problem guys, I was fully aware that the shipping wouldn’t be cheap but certainly appreciate the upfront honesty in regards to that.. Still mulling this one over, Currently have the RP280f’s and I am trying to decide if this is more of a lateral move or an upgrade in comparison...
  3. I’m assuming only thing wrong with them is that little bit of cosmetic damage, otherwise they sound great ?
  4. Thanks for the updated pictures are you willing to ship?
  5. I looked at your ad on OfferUp are those pictures of the ones with the damage?? Only asking because I didn’t see any damage on either of the speakers unless it’s very minor...
  6. Could not agree more, I had a denon X 1000 was extremely disappointed with the power output, The Denon AVR 2800 that it replaced had a lot more power and a lot more headroom, The main reason I replaced it was due to the need of HDMI and wanting to be a little more current... Long story short I ended up with a NADT758 which has been by far the best sounding receiver I’ve ever owned... However I do understand the need to stay within a budget, But if possible I would strongly consider upgrading the receiver... In comparison both of my denons ran very hot,however the NAD barely breaks a sweat...
  7. Are you going to be running Atmos in the future? If so I would go with the 500s, As Direct radiating speakers are recommended when running atmos.. If you’re going to stick with 5.1 I would go with the 502s As why dispersion is recommended for regular 5.1 usage...
  8. What is the low price you’re starting it with?
  9. Sorry Kris, I hastily posted that and should not have... What I saw in Best Buy was not the lower end but I’m thinking It may have been the 140s that I saw, Either way you’re right...! I do agree with them being an afterthought though, I have the 280s as well, but I am using klipsch satellite speakers for my atmos...
  10. However it could have been the 140s that I saw on top of them and not the 150s, I will take a look next time in there as well as a picture...
  11. I think this video was bogus, they fit perfectly on the 600s in Best Buy....
  12. OK I know it’s been a while but I finally pulled the trigger. I ended up going with the NAD. And talk about going from a broken hyperdrive to lightspeed, what a improvement. I haven’t completely ran Dirac yet, But to this point I am thoroughly impressed with the receivers quality and sound. It is a marked improvement over the Denon X 1000 that it replaced... So far well worth the money... I will give more feedback after I run the room correction.. One thing I noticed immediately is that the unit does not run hot Compared to my two previous denons.. More to come down the road I’ll keep you guys posted.
  13. Check out the rp600m’s, They are getting outstanding reviews no matter where you look and they are not oversized, However you may need to put them on stands
  14. 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..
  15. 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...
  16. 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...?
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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...
  20. 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
  21. 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...
  22. You’re welcome and thanks again I guess no one else has experience with these brands.... lol
  23. 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?
  24. 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...
