Hi All: Long time reader, rare poster here. I'm on the verge of upgrading my very basic HT setup from 3.1 to 5.1 or 5.1.2. Here's what I'm working with currently: Front L/R: Klipsch RP-160m Center: Klipsch RP-450c Sub: SVS 20-39CS (BIG cylinder!) Yamaha RX-A1070 receiver (110x2 @8ohms, 5.1.2 atmos capable) Samson S700 amp for subwoofer Oppo BDP105 Bluray Apple TV (Non 4k) I'm thinking of upgrading in 2 stages: 1) Upgrade the front L/R to floorstanders, and move the RP-160s to surround duty 2) Upgrade the subwoofer to a powered version, and upgrade the power amp to drive the front L/R Right now, I'm "paused" at stage 1 and seek advice. I'm pretty sure I'd like to go from RP-160s to RP-80xx, to get a big improvement in sound, and yet keep voice matching to the RP450 center. My only hesitation is around which towers to go with: the 8000 or the 8060fa? My receiver can support 5.1.2, even without a separate amp, so I'm interested to try out Atmos. But it looks like there's a $500 PER SPEAKER premium on the FA's. I'm wondering, what have folks' experience been with the FA's? Is it worth this premium? Will I notice that much of a difference going to 5.1.2 over straight 5.1? A few other factors I am working with that are relevant: - I don't have the option to run in-ceiling speakers at the current time, so it'll have to be reflected atmos (flat, 9' ceiling) - My intended use is roughly 50% movies, 25% music, 25% TV/non-HD streaming - Budget is a factor - not looking to spend more than $2-3k per upgrade stage I welcome your thoughts... especially those with atmos experience.
Hello everybody I do have a litte problem! I got everything out of the the RP 280 (www.klipsch.com/products/reference-premiere-home-theater-systems#rp-280) for a 5.1 setup. Everrything works fine has amazing sound and look stunning BUT in my room I cannot place the surround speakers left and right of my listening position. I have 2 Options. (The room is 19 feet by 16 feet so no funny shapes involved but the windows are blocking some of my option) Option 1 I can place them further back (within the recommended 110 degees) and about 3 feet above my listening position but this puts them about 1.3 feet from the back wall. But if I do this do I turn the speakers so that the center of the speaker points to my listening position and what mount do I get for that? Option 2 I can place them left and right of my listening position but about 4,3 feet above my listening position which is about 1 feet from the ceiling (and about 2/3 of the speakers would hang over See Picture). I cannot place it on the back wall becasue the back wall is one big window. Both Options are not ideal but which would you recommend? I thank everybody in advance for their help. P.S. Excuse my gramma and spelling errors I am from Austria (Europe) so not a native english speaker
Hi - Always wanted Klipsch since I heard a pair of LaScala in the 80s. So when I saw the reduced price of the RP-280 I jumped all over (2). Now I need an amp and would love a Emotiva but no budget right now. So looking at a decent 2 channel receiver to pair up with my Sony AV1020 and JBL L80s. The RP-280 is rated at 150 watt and rule of thumb is 80% so that leaves 120 watt. Unfortunately most of the receivers out there today are crap and the output is so low. Any advice? Dnc
