  1. I have the TV wall mounted and the LCR Hersey’s below it. Quick question…these RS-35 speakers have a keyhole mount which looks like you just hang them on a nail or screw. BUT I noticed in the keyhole there is also a threaded hole. What is the correct way to mount these on a wall?
  2. Wow! I didn’t see all these replies until now! I ended up picking up a deal locally where I got a Denon X4200 and a pair of RF-82 speakers sold as a set for $600. Now I have 4 Hersey II, 2 RF-82, 2 RS-35, 1 R-2800-CSM II, and 1 JBL PSW1000. I will try to take some measurements soon and make a diagram of the room to scale.
  3. So if I plan on cranking 3 Heresy IIs (4 ohm), 2 RS-7s, and 1 R-2800-CSM II (2ch ceiling), what kind of power do I need to push it without much distortion or overheating (will be in a enclosed rack with some ventilation but not tons).
  4. How are you doing Atmos with it? It doesn’t look like it supports it.
  5. Lol, you read my mind. I just came back here to say I think I have unrealistic expectations for what I would feel comfortable spending. I can do without ALL video requirements. I will just use the receiver for audio only. That being said, since I am not interested (no space) to run separate amplifiers, maybe I would be better off getting a used high end, high power unit? Thoughts?
  6. Oof, now I’m at $1100 though even with the refurb. I gotta try to find a deal somehow. Going to be really hard right now due to shortages.
  7. So what differences would I notice between the x2700h and the sr5015?
  8. Just to update, I decided on a Denon AVR X2700h. Now I’m just trying to find a good deal on one. For some reason, I don’t have a problem dumping $1500 on speakers, wire, banana plugs, ceiling boxes, speaker risers, etc., but it makes me cringe to spend almost $1000 on a receiver. My reasons for that model are: 1. 4K 120hz passthrough 2. Dolby Atmos 3. 7+ channels (in case I want to add in future) 4. 2nd sub out (in case I add a 2nd sub) 5. 4ohm stable for the Heresy IIs 6. 95WPC 7. High quality room calibration feature If anyone knows of another receiver that would be a better value while still producing high quality sound, I would love suggestions.
  9. Alright, I’m on the hunt now. Thanks for your help!
  10. If I can’t locate some RS-7s what do you guys think about RS-62s with the Heresy IIs? Would that sound good?
  11. I will check them out. What are your thoughts on using a stereo ceiling speaker like the one I mentioned for Atmos height speaker? Would that be a good idea?
  12. If I’m going the old receiver route, I could run everything through the TV and out to the receiver with an optical cable. if I go the new route, Atmos, 4K HDR would be nice. I am using it with a 65” LG CX OLED.
  13. Thank you so much for your reply! I really want the best bang for the buck on the receiver. For an older used receiver, around $300. I was considering an Atmos setup, but that would require a newer receiver. For that, I would spend between $500-$800. Again, I am focused on getting the most for my money, and not having to buy another replacement receiver for awhile. Also, is there a similar speaker to the RS-7 that might be more readily available? I can’t even find them on eBay. EDIT: I also have a ceiling speaker above the couch that I could replace with a stereo speaker like the R-2800-CSM II for Atmos if that is advisable…
