Yeah Rob that's how I am approaching it. With all the room upgrades I did last winter the last thing I want right now is more room work. Plus within two years it will be much clearer about much of the set up best practices and so on. For now I just want SPL like Ozzfest!

I wouldn't buy another thing from Emotiva for any reason. Every single thing I've ever bought from them has had some sort of failure. I used to be a part of the Emo lounge but left since I couldn't stand the bulsh^% over there since Andrew and Keith the pile of crap came on lol. It's funny, I had more posts over there than here and I don;t miss that crap hole 1 bit.

That seems more like it then...

They seem to be catching up then. I signed up about 6 months ago, so I am not expecting an email for several months.

+1000 N8DOGG...I won't buy anything from them either after they lied about putting out a firmware update for known problems with the Sherbourn PT-7030 preamp.

Took a while, but finally caught up on the thread. And it looks like I missed out on some 215RT for sale...darn...would've been perfect for my home office.
And congrats @carp . I hate you

Btw, almost everyone has Atmos on their AV already...it's called Heights. Take a couple of spare speakers and either hang'em above your seats or aim them 45 degrees at the ceiling. Rerun Audyssey and done.

Majority of the movies I saw in the last 15 months was in a theater equipped with Atmos. Aside from the fantastic Atmos trailer demo, I never walked out thinking about any ceiling sound effect from the movie itself, even though this theater has the best sound (levels, surround, bass) worth buying a movie ticket for...Maybe if they turned off the Ceiling channel, maybe then I'll miss it...who knows.

But knowing myself, I'll pick up the Marantz SR7009 and test Atmos out in home before making up my mind...for now, I'm skeptical Ceilings will add any more benefit than what Heights already kinda-debatably do.

I agree with your commercial Atmos assessment and the comment about Height speakers (I sold my S8 heights ). I think that down the road the Atmos format will be really nice in a HT environment. I think the smaller size of the Home Theater will make the audio object cues of Atmos sound better than in a large commercial Theater and as new films are made to take advantage of Atmos, the experience will improve. Of course, I'm a guy who bought a couple of HD-DVD players before finally caving in and buying a bluray player.

-10000 I have really good experience with Emotiva so far. For $1200 I am going to have what I consider the best pre pro on the market for my needs. Plus I don't need some little toy receiver with built in T amps. HaHa

Nope...put it on hold. Spring/Summer is my busiest work season, so I hardly had time to play with my toys. In the last 5 months, I think I did 3 demos and finally watched a couple of movies this week...without a projector no less. Plus, all funds have been going into furnishing the house. Hopefully I'll pick up something in the next couple months once I can finish up my work.

You read my mind by mentioning new films...I actually wrote something about that, but deleted it from my post to keep it short. If studios actually dedicate remixing efforts towards a new channel (5.1.x), then I can definitely see us reaping the benefits. However, I'm hesitant they will since 5.1 is still about 80% of remixes and 7.1 is finally gaining more ground. I read somewhere that remixing for Atmos releases adds about 20-30% to the sound budget due to the added time, so if studios don't mind this cost, we could see it happening. If studios don't dedicate to mixing for the third 'x' then we're still limited to the same AV level artificial processing that we currently get with all the current extra surround channels, which I'm not too crazy about as it is...Heck, I've dropped the idea of watching movies from a 'soft' source in the HT and instead from a Blu-ray to get every visual and audio resolution available to minimize introducing artificial algorithms in the chain. There is one other thing...even though Dolby lists certain movies as an Atmos releases, the Blu-Ray release is still 5.1. For instance, I saw Gravity in Atmos and it's listed on Dolby's site as an Atmos release...but my 3D blu-ray indicates audio is Dolby DTS 5.1. Adding an actual third 'x' channel for home releases is key IMO...even if it's just 5.1.x.

And I still have a new HD-DVD player I never used.

Man o' man. Boxing up my 212's. Didn't think it would be so emotional...

The Danley's were tough to let go also. Am I the only one to get emotionally attached to speakers?

What's up with that? I think I'm getting soft in my old age

With +130db capability of the Noesis 212HT and Triple 12HT, all you need is a parametric EQ with one "low shelf" filter set around 100-120hz and boost the level [COLOR=black]3-6db. Remember it takes double power to gain 3 db and quadruple the power to gain 6 db so make sure you have enough amplifier.
I replied to this post by Jeff asking if the same holds true for the 228's but he never responded. I am guessing it should be the same as the 228 has 129db peak capability. I just added a 9db boost at 100hz on a LS12 (I think) slope on my inuke3000 DSP's. I know adding this boost will cut into the power reserves of the inukes, but I have one inuke3000dsp bridged for each 228 so I am thinking I will be good up to reference.

Any thoughts?

I get attached to my cameras the same way...but it's best resale wise...win/win. Did you get the JBL monitors you were considering?

Yes, getting them. Listening to them poisoned my brain, sucking enjoyment out of anything else I listen to. And yes, yes, I know what you're thinking. It's all in my head. And the only thing I can say about that is to read sentence two again...I already know that

It might work well. You just need to know if you are dealing with a room mode. Do you have measuring equipment?

Of course how it sounds matters but that won't tell you if some of the power you threw at the situation is wasted on a null that can't be fixed in that way. I believe in listening and measuring and learning how the two coorelate.

Yes I have REW, no dips in the midbass region that I am boosting.
