Yo HTG!

Nice setup! Question for ya... Are the duals ULS's enough or are the other two subs needed to 'round it out'? How big is the room btw?

Thanks,

Hey Jack,

Nice to see you again. You are looking at my family room which is in an open floor plan where the entire first floor is located. The physical room is 6500^3 but is then open to everything else on the first floor. So easily in excess of 10 to 15,000^3. So while the Dual Drive does do a good job by themselves, it does help to have the Velodynes supplement the midbass department. Plus the front Forte II speakers have 12" woofers with 15" passive woofers on the back of the speaker. The bass in my entire house is very good no matter whether you are in the HT room or the dining room or the upstairs middle bedroom (home office) room.

Now, like I told Pete @ HSU when the Velodynes die, he better have saved me two Walnut ULS-15s in my private stash in his warehouse, since they discontinued the Walnut veneer.

By the way HTG, I see that Venom III now comes in a 2m length. And, as noted in my thread, custom lengths are available. I now wonder if I shouldn't return the PS Audio AC-5s I ordered (due to arrive today) and get all Venom cables now, to go with the extension I already have.

Ok I think my subwoofers are going to be asking for time off here soon.

I bought at Fry's on Thursday:
Hurt Locker (14.99)
Zombieland (12.99)
The Expendables (19.99)

and from Amazon today:
Hellboy II (7.99)
Knowing (9.99)
From Paris with Love (9.99)
Jonah Hex (12.99)
War of the Worlds (14.99)

and since I signed up for the Amazon credit card and got a 30 dollar credit I only spent $74 for 8 Blurays or 9.24 per movie. Is that or what?

Please tell me Jonah Hex isn't a blind buy, because you'll be very disappointed.

No I rented it first and actually enjoyed it. Especially the LFE in the movie.

Awesome additions to your collection, HTG. Time to test the foundation on your house.

How was your turkey day?

Today I slept until afternoon, made a dee-lish leftover turkey & stuffing sammy on sourdough. Now with a full belly, I sip my coffee and I'm checking out the black Friday bluray deals.

Blu's bought so far...

From Amazon:
Death Race [Unrated] ($10.49)
Hot Tub Time Machine [unrated] ($10)
The Expendables ($19.99) *new release*
I, Robot ($6.99)
Ice Age: The Meltdown ($9.99)
The Spy Next Door ($9.99)
Rambo [Extended Cut] ($7.99)

From NewEgg.com:
GI Joe: Rise of the Cobra ($6.99 + free shipping)

Btw, I also enjoyed Jonah Hex. The LFE was excellent and I didn't mind the movie.

Sounds like you had a great weekend so far. We went across the street yesterday and had dinner with about 10 friends then this morning the wife made a Turkey breast that we ate for lunch and will be having home made pizza tonight. Looks like you also did real well on you choices of movies. We watched The Expendables about 2 hours ago and all I can say is

Good times, my friend. I'm a fan of the homemade pizza too. I'm hoping to watch The Expendables this weekend. We should change the name from black Friday to blu Friday.

I like that idea. Blu Friday sorta rolls off the tongue. I wonder what's going to happen on Cyber Monday? I can't see them going even lower on these prices and if they do I'm going to sue. lol or maybe

BTW You might not have seen a post I did on Bluray. com but it looks promising that when the Eagles play at Melbourne again this Dec 17th that they might record the concert on BD hopefully. This is from their press release:
Quote:


The Eagles will again be performing hit after hit for more than three hours in an epic
showcase of their work that is sure to blow audiences away.
As with their incredible tour six years ago, the focus will be on optimizing the sound quality
of their live performances. Classic production, teamed with optimum indoor acoustics, will
provide the perfect environment for the rockers to take the stage.

Very cool. I have the Eagles Farewell Tour in Melbourne on HD DVD and think the AQ & PQ are phenomenal. A new show on BD could really be livin' in the fast lane and make this desperado wanna check into the hotel California.

I just have the DVD and I am amazed at how will that looks and sound. Every demo I do at my house includes a couple of cuts off of this concert. So hopefully The New Kid in Town, in a New York Minute will One of These Nights record a new demo worthy Bluray so we can sit back and Take It Easy and rewatch 3 hours of the Eagles Take it (our A/V systems) To the Limit.

Amazon is dangerous for you. Me too actually, since I can now use my AMEX rewards points there.

Thxs for the greetings waboman.

Priority one for the new year would be STAYIN' ALIVE




Then if I finally get a raise after 3 years I was thinking of the OPPO 93 and the Integra 80.2 for the Audyssey XT32 and Sub EQ HT features.

I hope you and your family have a great 2011.

Update on the Eagles possible Bluray. It aint gonna happen this year. I did some research yesterday and read some reviews of ppl who went to see the concerts in Australia and not a single person mention anything about HD cameras at the venues. So I guess we will not be looking for that disc in 2011.

Yes they would have. They would of seen the camera men on the stage or the camera trollys along the front of the stage filming the concert. Plus I'm sure the Eagles and/or announcer would have mention it at the start of the show that they were being filmed to encourage the crowd to be more animated because of the filming.

Frank do you have any news reports that they did film any of the Rod Laver Arena concerts?

Awesome vid, HTG. Those were the days.

I hear ya, just keep on living, man.

If you don't get your raise, we'll send in Moose & Rocko to loosen up your bosses purse strings. Seriously, I hope the raise does come through for you. Just knowing you here thru AVS, you deserve it.

The Integra 80.2 looks like a beast. The Audyssey XT32 intrigues me too. From what I've read, the consensus is quite positive.

Hope you and all your loved ones have a great new year!

That's too bad. I was looking forward to this. Looks like I won't be standing on a corner in Winslow, Arizona anytime soon. I hear it's a fine sight to see.
