I suspect the 212htrs will pick up even more. The specs aren't measured the same when reading the specs for both amps, neither give 4ohm info.
I am using 3 x crown xls-1500 for my 212ht (original model) lcr & slanted 8 surrounds. No noise with all the gains set at about 80% max. I use unbalanced rca cables from denon 4311.

Definitely a good deal there. Not to many get such unbalanced success! I would have done the same but the Onkyo 5508 Preamp came about and I went for it. My cables and Neutrik connectors showed up from Parts Express and I wired them up/made them yesterday. One side is Phoenix to input into the Crown DSI amp.

Great news on the XMC-1. Let us know what you think of it without DIRAC and with DIRAC. You are most likely going to want to also purchase DIRAC full for more control and option to use your own measurement mic and cal file.

Yeah, I'd consider the Dirac full upgrade to be essential in most cases.


The good news about the XMC-1 (based on what I have read) is that it it's a good unit and it doesn't need to do sample rate conversion for 44 or 48khz signals.

The bad news is that the multi-sub stuff isn't implemented right, so you have to use a single sub output and time align the subs manually.

More bad news is that it only holds a single Dirac preset, so there is no way to instantly A/B test Dirac filters, which is a big shame.


By comparison, the MiniDSP DDRC-88A does handle multiple presets, but it is fixed at 48khz, which might be audible for 44khz sources. Even so, I expect that the Dirac improvements should overwhelm that in most cases.


The PC version of Dirac Live (which I use) supports multiple presets and doesn't need to do any sample rate conversion, but you are limited to using the PC as the only source, so no Atmos or DTS-X.


Gotta compromise somewhere, unless you get a Datasat, which is nuts.


I'd love to see something like a DDRC-88A which does 16 channels at 96khz, with built-in bass mgmt, all for a reasonable price.

This is a good place for blu ray concerts I found the prices to be so-so but it is a good directory. I recently picked up David Glimour: Night to Remember, Pink Floyd fans need to pick this up. superb audio on it


Its not ahead of Through the Never, but it is up there

Yep, and still no talk of a matrix 4-6. Devastating.

Foo Fighters at Wembly stadium even sounds good on youtube, I'll have to pick up the disc for sure.
A random search on youtube found some artists going by the name Yoshida Brothers, lots of clean detailed music from them , interesting stuff.

Great list, I have quite a few, and see some I don't and need to get. How good is the Scorpions unplugged? Not a band I would expect to see do that

I received on Blu-ray yesterday and four more today. Scorpions Unplugged hasn't arrived yet, but was recommended by Carp.

I'm not a huge Scorpions fan - meaning I liked some of their stuff as a kid (Blackout album especially) - but I knew they were known to be really good musicians. They show it off on this blu ray, I stumbled on to it a few months ago and was really impressed.
