Well I finally heard back, the Oppo's toroidal and caps blew, repair cost is currently at $410, and hopefully it doesn't climb any higher...
(that includes return shipping and tax, ~$40)

use more speakers instead of one running at high power levels , adds to the cost but you will have a better sounding room
-- use four twelve inch subwoofers inplace of two or one - larger ports will reduce the peak power but if not to large
will give a great sound - works the same as having more running at less ( lower pressure against the walls less transfer )
look at the LG PF1000U if you want a projector

What is a 12...? Only 4? The smallest I have are 15's.

I have 13 15's, 8 18's and 2 21's.
I plan on adding another 14 18's ASAP.

4 12's wouldn't even get me 1db louder. (Unless they were subwoofer-headphones. )

Absolutely perfect!
Every time I tell friends and family that I want to put 8x18's in the theater; they think I'm nuts and then I read a post like this to confirm that I'm just fine.. Keep up the nice work and YES to another 14 18's!!!!!!

LOL. Only in this forum would people not be calling the local asylum to come pick you up after a statement like that.

DAMN. My neighbor is being kicked out by the end of September. I hope the landlord or new tenants like bass as much as the existing ones do.
If not, they will LEARN to like it!

Camping time is over. Smore Pie for the win!


Light and Dark chocolate.


I made a 4K video /w my UMIK-1, but unfortunately due to technicalities the audio track and REW analysis was purged from the disk.
I tried to recover it but the volumes aren't recognized as NTFS for some reason. I'll try a Windows 10 compat recoverer but I think it might be toast.
It was averaging 32dbA which is the lower-limit of the UMIK-1.

Really too bad because I caught a bee zipping by, some birds, and some "other" animal howling that wouldn't shut the hell up! Might have been a Big Foot. Sounded like a dying coyote. I'll see if I can recover the files...


I think the Big Foot tried to kill me with a large rock at one point.
Calm:

Debris:

Wave:

It was pretty loud, scared the hell out of me because I had my back turned to it!

When I turned around I was expecting to be ripped apart and eaten alive, but nothing happened.

I got word today that my Oppo is fixed and is being shipped back.
It's got the newest version of their 2-ch DAC board and power supply.

I remember it taking about 2-4 days of use/pinknoise to "break in" the Oppo when I first got it 3 years ago.
It would suck if it sounds worse after repair... fingers crossed!!!

I was thinking of renting out my house, moving, and then going back to university for 1-2 years very soon here, so unfortunately that will eat up my entire theater budget and then some; as well as any free time to do anything but study.
I keep changing plans and gears trying to figure out what is most-optimal from an income/job perspective. Gotta go where the money is, gotta make that paper...
