Let me start this off by saying boy has it been a LONG three days now. I have been in that room for so long tweaking, I am dizzy and I mean DIZZY. The result though, is so WELL worth the reward I have NEVER been happier with my setup since it was well, setup.
I've made some changes to my system to remove the Pioneer Elite I was using and switch to an Audyssey enabled pre amp. I've got a dedicated ATI 1800 7 channel amp and the Pioneer is a receiver so I wanted something as well to match up better with the ATI more appropriately. Here is what I picked up:
I'll tell you this thing is smoking audio wise. My SACD and DVD-A Collection has NEVER sounded better and the Cinema performance is exceptional. Truly pro grade. It's upgradeable as well to the Audyssey pro eq but to be honest I'm perfectly happy with what comes with it and dont see the need to upgrade.
I've also been blessed with a high bandwidth modified Marquee switcher from Mike Parker to replace the NEC ISS switcher I was using before and boy what a difference it makes and I mean HUGE difference. THANKS SO MUCH MIKE. This thing is spitting out 120hz to my G90's and not even thinking about breaking a sweat. Too cool. Its truly a special piece of equipment and has been instrumental to giving the G90's the ability to display high bandwidth (more on this later).
I've paired the Marquee switcher with Moome's latest V3 EXT as well as a Lumagen Radiance (THANK YOU ALAN!) and while there is a couple small bugs to be worked out with it, I'll tell ya, this is by far a HUGE HUGE HUGE improvement over what I had before as well and not to mention I even have 3D Games and Movies up and running!!!!!!!!! Moome, you have out done yourself this time! FANTASTIC JOB!
Now to Craig,
I had absolutely no Radiance experience and made an appointment with Craig to come down last Thursday evening and help to install the Radiance in the system and Recalibrate the projectors. I have to admit, I am SHOCKED at Craig's knowledge of the G90, The Radiance, and as well as his Calibration experience. This guy is NO JOKE I'll tell ya and his equipment is THE BEST. He really knows his stuff big time. Craig, thanks so much for helping me get my G90's to look absolutely STUNNING. I'm scared what is going to happen when I put in new tubes this summer.
While there are some small issues to be worked out with the 3D I'll tell ya on the stack, it's pretty damn sweet. I cant wait to see it tweaked to perfection when Craig gets all the details worked out with Lumagen and Moome. Oh, and that Radiance is something to behold. What an extremely awesome piece of work. Any G90 owner should have a Radiance in their setup!
THANKS SO MUCH GUYS!
