You can buy into the 'flash in the pan' marketing spin of Cinemike if you like, but evidence and history is on my side.

Why does the theta cb sound much more better than the datasat? The problem with theta is the less options you got otherwise the choice was easy.

Without assuming anything about the work that Cinemike does (I have no personal experience) I do accept the analogy provided by masterkale in respect to the benefits to performance that careful and considered aftermarket modifications can achieve. I am probably equal parts open minded to the possible improvements that a Cinemike modification can provide while also somewhat wary/sceptical (noting Carl's expertise around the RS20i and relevant parts used).


The price asked for the Cinemike modifications is high but if the end user thinks it is worth it then I expect only that is what matters to them.


I do appreciate masterkale sharing his thoughts on his unit while also valuing the corresponding different perspectives etc provided by any other member.

[QUOTE=Masterkale;46260137I will stop the discussion because you think you got the best equipment anyway.... and nothing is better or better designed.

I have no clue if I have the "best equipment" nor did I say I did. But I am very comfortable saying it is one of the best. But, that is not what we are discussing. Enjoy your meds. If you are happy with them that is all that really counts.

I got a good laugh when I read "enjoy your meds". Then I realized you meant "mods"....


I agree 100%. The CB has its strengths; but it also has its weaknesses. The Datasat may not be "the best equipment" to everyone, but it sure is not second class compared to the Theta.

Current Equipment: Datasat LS10 w/ Atmos and DIRAC. Datasat RA7300, Aerial Acoustics LR5's (LCR), Aerial Acoustics LR3's (sides), RBH in-walls (rears), Seaton Submersive, Marantz VP15s1, 106" Carada BW screen, Oppo BDP-103.
