  1. Well since hofy was just here recently I thought I'd post as well, since I am an old timer afterall, and I have one of the original high gain preamps from a set of v2-400 I used to have to prove it I didn't realize Kblair was a legend! haha I believe he was in the lead for # of posts until around the 900 mark when hofy finally caught up and beat him to 1000! Kblair was quite popular and I'm still quite fond of him although I don't see him around much anymore-Gxcad c>

  3. I do believe they are magnetically sheilded...and should be fine. -Gxcad
  4. totally flat tube...hehehe I dunno~ -Gxcad
  5. Videologic Digitheater DTS is a good speaker "package" for $600. Its multimedia thou, not HT. Its 5.1 as well, check out some reviews of it if you want more info.-Gxcad c>
  6. It seems like someone set me up the bomb...I mean I think my cpu is busted, I have tried various tests to come to this conclusion. Well, I have a 1.33 t-bird on the way so when that arrives I will find out now won't I? -Gxcad c>
  7. I have a new KK266-R and was wondering what you think it means when its turned on with everything in place and it fails to post or beep, and sends no signal to the monitor. The last time I remember my computer did this was when I oced my proc too far... I have never gotten my KK266-R to post but it does receive power (all the fans and jigamawats start to light up and turn).... any ideas? Thanks-Gxcad c>
  8. There is one benchmark I'd bet the AMD can't beat the P4 and that is memory bandwidth. Mainly due to the P4's 400mhz FSB and 800mhz RDRAM. But screw memory bandwidth if the athlon is faster AND cheaper!!-Gxcad c>
  9. IMO, the CP1 improves bass. It is punchier and theres more of it -Gxcad c>
  10. Did you use the quintets with the pros sub (substituted the pros sats with quintets?) I kinda wanted to do this...-Gxcad c>
  11. Cabbage, read thread "my thoughts about the new 4.1" for...you guessed it! My thoughts about the new 4.1 -Gxcad c>
  12. I forgot to mention I noticed something very interesting. When I had the CP1 hooked up to the sats with the old xover there was hiss when in idle (like the original high gain preamp) but when I used the new sats there was no hiss! Maybe the new sats have a lower volume compared to the old sats cuz I also noticed that they *might* have sounded quieter than the old ones at the same position on the preamp. Of course, it can also mean that the new sats simply reproduce less white noise, which is probably a good thing -Gxcad c>
  13. Ok first off, I got them from soundcity.com and they were $294ish including all fees. I've tried the CP1 with the old sats before I went full out and setup the 4.1. The CP1 seemed to enhance the gain (louder) and bass was louder and tighter (less boomy). The sound also MIGHT have sounded a little clearer, but it was so hard to tell that it probably was my ears playing tricks on me. Ok now new satellites, Boom! Yes there is noticibly more midrange! I think there is also less excessive sound...if you know what I mean. I'd hardley call it an improvement straight up, I'd say most people would say its an improvement but its very debateable and I bet there'd be a lot of people who prefered the old crossover. The sats don't have improved sound quality, they merely have a slightly different type of sound, so its a matter of taste weither its an upgrade or not, IMO.Theres my short report! -Gxcad c>
  14. Just got my 4.1's as well. Since I have the old promedias as well, I can do all the comparisons possible (old preamp old cross, new pre old cross, old pre new cross and new pre new cross) however I am only going to do the new pre old cross unless someone else replys and INSISTS they want my opinion on the old pre to new cross . Also, I had one heck of a time getting the CP1 off of the main sat...but no prob gettin that screw out. Hope I don't get the sats mixed up before I sell my old set (I don't have THAT much money...hehe) right now I'm not putting on the rubber feet so I can tell them apart -Gxcad Haven't listened to them yet...I'll have them setup in about an hour...just hope we don't get a blackout again... c>
  15. No promedia or acoustic edge? Also...superorb? hmmmm....-Gxcad c>
