  1. It is infinitely annoying to me that even the best most respected receiver manufacturers don't include power ratings for all channels being driven. I mean who the hell buys a 7.2 receiver to listen to stereo? No one does. So that 2-channel spec is completely useless. And they literally ALL do it! Even on the high end models.
  2. Damn brother thanks for taking one for the team! God just imagine how pissed you'd be if you smashed right through that speaker though LMAO! Thanks for the replies everyone. I think it will be just fine. Now just to pull some money out of my a$$ so I can afford the new front soundstage I want plus all the other crap I want ugh haha.
  3. Ok yeah I missed the whole Marantz NR1609 thing. So you're limited to 5.2 as far as Atmos is concerned. So I assume you're using the Atmos channels in your 280FA and then just using the ceiling channels as rear surrounds? Hey if it sounds good and is immersive then go on with ya bad self haha. Personally I would forgo the ceiling channels and just place some ear level speakers behind you and continue to use the Atmos channels in the 280FA for your height. But at the same time, as far as Atmos is concerned, nothing beats having a direct speaker over head as opposed to bouncing it off the ceiling. It kinda sucks because the dedicated ceiling channels would most certainly provide a better Atmos experience but then you're wasting the Atmos channels in your expensive 280FA towers, essentially turning them into an overpriced 280.
  4. That's a good idea I hadn't thought of! Thanks! I was also considering something like this https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mllieroo-Universal-Height-Adjustable-TV-Stand-Table-Top-TV-Stand-for-32-65-inch-LCD-LED-TVs-with-Tempered-Glass-Base-VESA-600x400mm/198636365?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222227235833031&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=279287940401&wl4=pla-468434873268&wl5=9013529&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=198636365&wl13=&veh=sem&gclid=Cj0KCQjw9ZDeBRD9ARIsAMbAmoahMHXlYkJGJMtaPlv-nddXX6zR_pFnO6WIy0s1hnqrg1jVt9XpcHwaAv3LEALw_wcB This is a tabletop TV stand and I could attach it to my TV and place it on top of my TV stand and basically place the 504C on top of the little platform on the bottom of the strand. Then maybe put a couple 1/4" spacers in the front of the 504C to make it level again.
  5. I mean I would definitely use the ones in the 280 or else buying the FA model was a waste. With that said I would use all 4 I guess. In my opinion, about the only thing ceiling speakers are good for would be height based channels. So I'd utilize one of the other sets you have as surrounds and set it up as a 5.4 Atmos system. Run your room correction stuff and it will configure both pairs of Atmos channels in order to get the most from them.
  6. As the title says, I'm wondering if it's ok to place my Sony 65 inch TV on top of an RP-504C. I've checked the dimensions and it seems it will fit with room to spare. The 504C is just so wide there's no where else for it to go except on top of my TV stand. Well that leaves no room for the TV and wall mounting isn't an option. My main concern is if having the TV on top will affect the sound and I worry if the 504C structure can support a 60+ pound TV sitting on top of it. I have seen a TV placed on top of a wide center channel in some of the Klipsch promo images although it was a much smaller TV. I would put something in between the TV and speaker to protect the finish on the speaker. Thanks.
  7. Ugh so glad I'm a bachelor!
  8. You mean like low end bass? Nah you don't wanna be depending on towers for your bass. Especially for home theater use. I'd cross them things over at 80-100hz and let the sub handle all the beautiful low end. I've got two R-12SW subs helping out my R-28F towers and my towers never play a note below 100hz even though they're rated down to 45hz I think. Was 80hz for a while. I'd turn the LPF as high as it will go without localizing the sub in your room. Since my subs are siting directly beside my towers I really could have crossed them over at 120hz but settled at 100hz for some reason. Even my little modest system rocks in 2.2 mode for music.
  9. Why though? Part of being a teenager is rattling the walls with music your parents loathe lol.
  10. Dude, where are you located? Roughly at least. Like what state? Think I’m the 3rd person to ask you this...
  11. Ah thanks dude that's what I needed to know! I haven't seen a 7013 on accessories4less yet. Hard to believe that Denon 7200 is from 2014! Wow! That thing must have been quite a beast in 2014. I mean it still is really. I'll be keeping my eyes open for the Denon 6500 on Accessories too.
  12. Yeah I'm totally considering the 7012 or 7011 now too. I've discovered accessories4less and even though I usually steer clear of refurbished units, they offer a 3 year warranty for $100. They have the SR6013, 7011 and 7012 all for $999. Then they have the Denon AVR-X7200WA for $1500. Is that just a flagship Denon model from last year? Then on the Marantz, the SR7011 and 7012 are from last year too? The flagships from Yamaha and Pioneer are also within reach now too I suppose. Ugh so many damn options.
  13. Damn you lucky dawg! Let me get your address and the time frames when no one is home....lol
  14. How much was this front stage? Great stuff, I'm looking to upgrade my front stage next year and this could very well be what I'm looking at. EDIT: Ok just checked prices on Klipsch.com. If someone didn't care about the much better looking redesign, would the RP-280 sound identical to these? I mean it is the exact same drivers, right? Is the only difference the sleeker looking cabinet? Because damn $479 a pop for the RP-280 is very enticing.
  15. Hey my dudes my older Onkyo A/V receiver that powers my old home theater in a box 7.1 system in my bedroom has bit the dust. So I want to put the Onkyo TX-NR757 from my living room in the bedroom. Meaning I'll need a fresh receiver for the living room. I'm looking to budget about $1,500-16 for a receiver. This receiver will be powering my 7.2 all Klipsch speaker system: x2 R-28F towers, R-25C center, x4 R-15M surrounds and 2 R-12SW subs. At some point in the future I intend to upgrade my front stage+subs to something a little higher up the Klipsch ladder (at least RP). Although, to be honest, I don't exactly know why because I've been extremely happy with the sound from my Best Buy Klipsch setup haha. The towers+subs in 2.2 especially shine for my music through Tidal or my extensive FLAC collection. But I have no complaints from movies either. Quite the opposite, it impresses me with every listen Regardless this speaker upgrade will be next year most likely, but for now a receiver is needed to power what I have and potentially in the future. For my budget I've narrowed it down to the Denon AVR-X4500H and Marantz SR6013. The Denon has somewhat annoyed me so far as their power ratings are listed as that BS 4ohm one channel figure that is completely useless. The Marantz listing I saw listed the power as 150WPC but didn't specify any further. But, from what I gather, Marantz is pretty straight forward and honest with their power ratings. But I mean surely this thing isn't outputting 150wpc on 9 damn channels, I mean right? Either way, they'll both be heaps more powerful than the Onkyo they're replacing and as far I can tell this Onkyo powers these speakers just fine, so power isn't too much of a concern. So what do you guys think as far as these two brands and how they synergize with Klipsch? Thanks in advance. And if anyone can point me to a bench test of these two receivers I'd sure be grateful as I can't find one.
