Anyway here's Chris's first response ...

"As Eitan said, the trim limit set by the AVR maker is unrelated to the Audyssey filters. The MultEQ filters will apply a max boost of 9 dB and max cut of –20 dB regardless of the speaker levels. The required digital headroom has already been accounted for in the AVR gain structure." -Chris K

Good to get that cleared up:D.

Oh, that fish has been on the pan for a good 6 weeks in the form of a preorder for the upcoming JVC 4910. biggrin.gif

I'm pretty sure I won't be able to shut up when I get things setup. So, no worries. smile.gif

Cool. I am waiting for my pre-ordered JVC X500 to ship (which is essentially the same projector). It's my first projector.

Which screen did you go with? I ended up with a 125" diagnol Seymour Center Stage XD AT screen with 2.35:1 aspect ratio in the economy frame. I will be sitting about 11.5 feet from the screen and originally planned on buying a 110-115" screen but Chris@Seymour encouraged me to go bigger smile.gif

Once HDMI 2.0 is out and a good 4K projector comes out with the proper 18.2 Gbps chip, I'm gonna snatch a new one up too!

The 4910 looks to be a solid choice!! Congrats guys, I'm Jelly tongue.gif

I want a 4K projector and I don't even know why. I have never seen one live in person and there is no real software/content available. I just know that 4K is way more than 1K smile.gif

I think I'm going with a Da-lite 133" or 138" diagonal dual masking in-ceiling retractable screen that automatically masks from cinemascope format to HDTV format. Not sure screen type yet, but Da-lite only company with an affordable in-ceiling retractable screen with masking - so they get my business. The whole AT vs, not AT has me a bit in a quandary right now. I'm at about 10 ft seating

I'm going to be ordering an AT screen from Falcon screens early next week. I was originally going to get one from Seymour with the XD material, but I wasn't crazy about being able to see the weaver from about 9-10ft away especially with my seats at 11.5ft from the screen. From what I've heard about the Falcon screen material you can't see the weave until your 5-6ft away.

Plus they are a little cheaper then the Seymour screens and they also offer an additional discount to AVS forum members, so a win win in my books.

Unfortunately, in-ceiling retractable instantly eliminates a bunch of companies right from the get-go

I had a sony 1000ES for a few weeks, simply amazing. I'm wanting the new Sony 600es but the current ones are shipping with the 10.8 Gbps chips, so until the new ones are out with the 18 gbps chips, I'll wait it out.
Whats crazy is they are priced a 14K in the US and the exact same projector is 8K in Japan.... I'm glad I've got a good friend living in Japan!! lol

Well I noticed today my plasma has a small amount of burn in from using my Mac mini on it. I have always tried to be careful and set my screen saver to 1 minute . Anyway no PJ and 4 digit screens for me. My, most likely smaller than average, income doesn't allow for such. 212 Noesis in March will be the big splurge and being young and moving along into a family will set upgrades off track for years. But it's for good reasons smile.gif. Even when the time comes I imagine a 2.5k PJ budget would be tops and perhaps a DIY screen or not too ridiculously expensive. You won't certainly ever find me spending 3-4K for screen. But certainly to each his own smile.gif
I am sure I am a black sheep in this thread but hey what the hell, you only live once and I'll have 3-212 Noesis, 2-Triple 8's and 2-Seaton Submersives at 30. I surely would have spent a lifetime on crap if it wasn't for this thread and others on AVS!

Whats funny is thats a better system than 99.9% of people have! Just because you don't have extra money to throw around doesn't mean anything, the enjoyment you get out of your gear is all that matters. Heck, you got more than I did when I was 30!

And JTR speakers as well?

Might be my only chance to hear the OS in person in SD.

My speakers will be ready this coming weekend so I'm driving up to Jeff's shop to pick them up. Three 212's, 4 S8's and 2 slanted 8's. Can't wait!

Took me 4 1/2 hours last time. It makes me nervous to ship speakers so I always try to go pick them up. And since Jeff delivered my S2's to me, I figured its my turn to head north. At least it's half the distance that I drove to Detroit to pick up the Salks.

Have you ever seen how Jeff ships them? They could literally get run over by the shipping truck and not have a mark on them. I've never seen a speaker packed better than that!
