Just a quick update. As I mentioned I hosted a small meet for some local AVS members last night.
all stopped by for a BBQ, chatting and some viewing of the 1000ES. For a guy that normally has a ton of pictures I'm sad to report I was to busy trying to be the host extraordinar' to take any
While other then this one of the BBQ I took with my phone as I waiting for the steaks to get to medium rare.
I think the guys were impressed with the unit but I'll let them post their views if they wish. Anyway it was great to meet the new guys and to see Alta and Scope again as they were the only 2 I had actually meet before in person previous to last night.
Special thanks to Zulu who came a bit early and helped me discover that the buzzing is from my front sound stage and the flying mole cascade amp! So now I'm on the hunt for a new 7 channel amp for the room.
Anyone have some suggestions let me know my criteria is as follows.
Quiet (fan less is ideal but low db is ok I just don't want to hear it at all from 15' away just like the flying mole was (it's fan less thus silent which I love). I also need something that doesn't generate tons of heat much like the flying mole as I don't have the best heat dissipation system in the rack and I already have some very "hot" items in the rack like first gen PS3 and Xbox 360 that double as microwaves!
Must be able to do 150 watts per channel for all 7 channels ideally. (more is better).
I'd like to keep the costs around 5k or less if possible but would spend up to 10k for something if it was warranted.
So that is my next quest 7 channel amp.
My other quest which I've already discussed is getting a new amp that I can run my 4 subs off of as well. I want to pull the crown and behringer out and put in a single amp solution again that is very powerful but quiet! I'm all ear (or eyes in the case of the forum) so let me know what you guys think please?
