  1. Hi I've searched far and wide for an answer to this, but haven't had any luck yet... Is there a receiver on the market which lets me play music through more than only two channels? I don't want to play it in surround, because music through surround mode gives zero sound. I want the sound that normally comes through the two front channels to come through my entire 5.1 setup. In regards to this, im not interested in downloading software that enables music services such as spotify to play with 5.1 or adding amps to my system. Im asking if there is a "all-in-one" solution, such as a receiver, that lets me play music through more than two channels?
  2. According to Youtube reviewer Tech Legend the Reference Premier 7.1 was first overall Best Home Theater Systems out of ten named. The Klipsch Reference Theater Pack 5.1 was ninth.
  3. Hey all - Just had a newborn and considering going to in-walls to free up some space in the room and hopefully have some money left over from the sale. Would hate to see this stuff go, but we don't get to use the media room much, right now.Considering selling my Klipsch system. Purchased in 2014 and in great condition. Never over, or under, driven. Originally powered by a Denon x2200w then Denon x4300h and now an Outlaw 7125 amp.Available (a la carte):2 x RF-7 II - $750 each1 x RC‑64 II - $5502 x RS‑62 II - $250 each2 x RS-41 II - $100 eachAll together = $2600 ($150 off)Only have original boxes for the RS-41’s, so can’t ship the RF-7s or the center. Located outside of Wash. DC (Leesburg, VA - 20175).Attached are a few pictures of the speakers in our room. Also listed on AVSForum: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/209-audio-gear/2931458-testing-waters-klipsch-reference-7-0-setup-rf-7-ii-rc-64-ii-rs-62-ii-rs-41ii.html#post55081452
  4. I recently made some changes about my home theater setup. I am hoping to get some advise and suggestion if there is anything wrong with my setup. My home theater walk through link: My current setup: Living Room: R28F, R-25C, R-14M, RS-25, Sony -DH800, Epson 142X (1080p Projector to 120 in screen). Master Bedroom: RP-280F, RP-450C, RP-250S, Onkyo TX-NR656 (100w @ 8ohom), Samsung UN65MU8000 ( 65 in 4k) Guest/Kid Room: Pending (probably going with a RF series set) My current concern is: Should I keep 5.1 in master bedroom, or get a pair of RP-160M/RP-150M for 7.1, or get RP-140SA for ceiling bounce atmos, or get RP-5800 ceiling speaker for atmos? As for atmos ceiling speaker, Any ceiling speaker recommendation? Micca M-8C 8 ($40/each), Polk Audio RC80i ($130/pair), Klipsch PRO-180RPC (ebay $250/each ), Klipsch 5800-C II (eba $225/each) ? I have a 5.1 system now ( RP-450C, RP-280F, RP-250S)
  5. Hello all, so after 3 (not to mention) av receivers in the last 5 years, and after countless hours of research, I have decided to go with a Cambridge Audio CXR-200 av receiver. At this moment I cannot provide a critical or accurate review but from what I researched I feel this avr will be a good decision. It came down to the numbers, 120wpc @8ohms with all channels driven, and even more enticing 170wpc @8ohms with 2 channels driven. Pre-outs are limited to 2 left and right channels which are important and detrimental to what I want to achieve in my home theater. From there this receiver seems to have everything that most to almost all av receivers have EXCEPT, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and the most 'wounding', HDR processing. What I found most intriguing about this receiver is what the essence of home theater is about; the sound and how this receiver processes that sound. Next week when I free this beautiful beast from its cardboard surroundings, I will provide a more detailed and updated review. Does anyone out there have experience or know of anyone owning the Cambridge Audio CXR-200? As always, thank you for you thoughts and comments.
  6. I've been full of ideas (and possibly something else) all day today, so at the risk of making a fool out of myself I'm throwing this one out to the forum & lurkers from Klipsch Product Development: What if Klipsch were to make Heritage-series surrounds for home theater? Maybe it sounds silly at first glance, but think about it. How many forum members are using Heritage speakers in their HT setups? How many goofy, un-elegant ways have we tried to elevate a Heresy to ear level without creating a danger for small children and pets? Envision a smaller version of the HIP with heavy-duty woofer, horns for mid-range and tweeter, and porting. How cool would that be? If you can build a mini-LaScala for the desktop (Klipsch blog), why not something like this? I run a market research firm for a living, and would be happy to suggest ways to test which would be low-risk. If anyone's interested, that is...
  7. This is my first post in the forum. But at the least I can say that I have actually read through almost the entire Home Theater forum, and then the subwoofer forum in order to learn the basics as best as I can and understand what people like, why, and at least not seem like a complete idiot here. I have 2 things I'd like help with. The first is my home theater setup. I have attached 2 quick pictures here, obviously not a lot of time taken on them but enough I hope to give an idea. The other question I have I'll post separate so as not to muddy things up. The room itself is a rectangle, with the front by the windows being hexagonal (3 sides in the front), so there is a bit of a breakup of the room. The width is about 12.5', and the length roughly 25'. Hardwood floors with a big area rug underneath the entire home theater area up to the couch. Behind that is the dining table. One picture shows a shot towards the front, the other from the front to the back. There's a nice Vizio 4K TV centered exactly with an RP-250C center channel tucked in nicely (but with some room above and behind). I originally had a R25C and bought the RP250C when it went on sale...the difference was about $30 and the lower end of the RP250C better matched crossing over below 100 (I think the R25C low end is 82hz, the 250C is 62). Listening for all of 1 minute told me which was better beyond the specs themselves. To each side is an R-28F (not the RP280F...the R28Fs were 1/2 price for black friday, this is my first system so it was a good size expense for me still). Behind the right yellow chair by the window is an R10SW, sitting on a entry carpet doubled over. Before it was on the carpet it was boomy...once on the carpet it seemed to remove any vibration going through the wood floor). The sub is pointed along the window line...driver pointed at right R28F, port plenty of room firing towards behind the TV. This position seems to have made locating the sub difficult from the couch. Mounted HIGH up on the walls are R15Ms. I mounted them myself, wired it along the crown molding. They are that high because I wanted them above people walking around the room...a 6'6" person (I know a few) can walk under these as they are set with the bottom of the speaker at 84". The stud was there so I used Videosecu mounts. The only other option I had position-wise was about 5 or 6 feet back. I strongly considered that but thought it was too far behind the listening area...and if using a multichannel music for parties...the position was more central. I have these pointing roughly at each other, but down the 7 degrees the mounts allow. AND, in an effort to get the high frequencies down to the listening areas, mounted the bookshelves upside down (tweeters on bottom). The back surround channels are some M&K SX4s gifted from a good friend. They are amazingly powerful, have 2 5" drivers and 2 tweeters each. They are located on a display case, about 6 feet off the ground, tilted slightly forward to move the treble into the listening area as best as possible with minimal angle (I might guess, 15degrees?) All this is driven by a Sony STR-DH750, 1050 total watts (lol maybe, I guess based upon everything I read here and elsewhere). I run the auto calibration on it, and find that it's decent. Because the surround channels are high up, I definitely notice it doesn't sound the same as when they were at ear level or just above (on shelves). So I overrode the calibration a bit from 0/+0.5db increase to about 4db more than that. At that point the surround came in much better. Crossovers are 60 for the front (I found bass sounded better than 70 or 80), 70 for the center, and 80 for the surround (r15ms could do 70 too, but the M&Ks I believe were THX designed to not go below 80). I hope that's a good description, and not too much or little for some help. I realize having been through this whole forum that there are a world of other speaker options available to me, and over time I can certainly see myself upgrading the fronts and the bookshelves (which I guess is exactly what Klipsch hopes too). But for me these are incredible already, so much better than what I had before. Thoughts, ideas, tips regarding my setup? Especially those surrounds mounted on the wall...should I experiment more with moving the couch forward and back? If I end up increasing the db on the surrounds, is it better at some point instead of say going up 4 or 4.5db, to decrease the fronts 1 or 2 and "average" out the difference (i.e., instead of FL 0, FR 0, LS +4, RS +4....FL-2, FR -2, LS+2, RS+2)? Can I remount these if needed? Not now, but down the road. This is it for now, but the fronts and back surrounds can be moved no problem. I can though rotate and angle the side surrounds anyway I like (up/down 7 degrees, rotate 360). All help and criticism is appreciated.
  8. Been awhile since I've posted, but wanted to check in and see if I could pull off this forum's great knowledge. I have a friend who is setting up his room with a 7.1 setup and I'm helping him with purchasing/setup etc. When he first wired up the room, he placed the fronts and the backs about 18" from the 8ft higih ceiling so they are at the same height - all good! the Surrounds are wired perfectly to the left and right of the seating arrangement. My original thought is to put the inwall surrounds at the same height as the Fronts and Backs. But the dilema I'm fighting is that on one side he has a 12" bulkhead - which would leave one side only 6" from the bulkhead. The other side has the normal 8ft ceiling so it would be 18" away So I'm fighting with putting the surround speakers at ear level.. or at the same height as the rest of the setup...Any thoughts? Will the bulkhead effect the sound on the one side? Room is 27ft long by 13 ft wide. Let me know if there's any other info that would be helpful Thanks in advance!
