I was laughing the other day, I was doing a search and came across your room and I did not even know it was your room for a little bit . I was google searching screens or something and your images popped up in the mix. It was in your early years because you had a center channel that looked like an alarm clock and I believe you had some planer speakers of some sort? That is like the 3 rd time I came across your room on a search and did not ever recognize it. Lots of changes over the years.

Congrats on those 2 but isn't it going to be difficult to pick them up from Riomaggiore, Italy???
Again, my floor is a "suspended" slab floor. It sits atop a regular 6 or 7 course cinderblock foundation, but the floor was filled with dirt and then pored over the foundation and dirt. Not technically suspended, but you get the idea. It is the only room in the house that was done that way as it was originally a screened in porch, that we have now finished over to living space twice now. The room had been basically vacant for last 7 years. Certainly found a good use for it now

Yeah I move every week, places I want to be

Stop that...you've been messing with me because I thought you were in Fl and then I look and you're from San Diego. With my memory, that's just cruel.

Enjoy the subs. Can't wait to hear your impressions.

LOL, I was wondering if anybody noticed that. I'm a weirdo, what do you want. Somebody I was chatting with last week in the Denon thread that I did not know did not believe I was from Alaska. LOL

I agree wholeheartedly. Wallet has been severely damaged.

But seriously, the equipment is really good, the people are the best.

I just purchased a Omnimic V2 system and it arrived yesterday. I have no idea how to use it yet and I've never created a graph of my room in my life but I'm sure I'll be able to produce them....now interpreting them is something I'm sure I'll need help with.


I wanted to get this and become familiar with it before my 215's arrived so I can be sure they sound their best. My plan is to play with the Omnimic this weekend...try and produce a graph or two and go from there.


Certainly there are some Omnimic "studs" or "graphologists" out there that can help me....yes????

Kind of a dead subject around here, but who is going to be the first in the crew to jump on the Atmos train? I was reading over in the Denon forum and guys are already rolling with Transformers 4 and upscaling other movies. Kinda of happened pretty quick.

I talked to Jeff about this again last week. I'm pretty sure I'll do it after the first of the year. I have room in my second layer of my soffit (ceiling). I need to crawl in my attic and get the dimensions to see what I can get in there. I'm more worried about depth as I have a slanted roof line on the left side of my room. Jeff has not decided on how to attach a version of the single 8s yet. I'm sure once someone forces his hand or gives him the specifics, it'll start happening on his end. I think it (Atmos) adds a nice effect but if it wasn't as easy as it's going to be for me, I might hold off till I see the true uptake. I have the space for it and I ran speaker cable for wides and heights but didn't use them. I'll pull the cables up out of the walls and use them for my ceiling speakers.

Great to hear Nabs! I don't have the Omnimic as I have used REW but yes there are some Omnimic studs on here. Start playing with it and start a thread with your questions. It is worth it to learn ir and isn't too bad once you get over the initial hump. Have fun!

Seriously, it's that bad. Like the Corvair (unsafe at any speed), MCACC is unsafe at any volume.

Now, it could just be my room and/or the two avr's I've had that have MCACC...
Lol.. I Know right? So far I just used MCACC for sp settings. Didn't use to calibrate for symmetry, front align, and all the other crap.. Gotta get my kids to their practices today. Then shoot straight home to do manual EQ. And run REW. me=" honey? Kids?" Eat left overs at home. I gotta do this.. Wife="There's no leftovers to eat". Me again="Well then eat cereal then". Kids= "dad.. You mean eat cereal for lunch and dinner?" Me again= "you got that right!" Wife= " oh gard! I'm leaving your ass at home. And taking the kids out." Me again= " oh man!" ( inside of me " YEA! The whole house to myself!"

LOL, that window popped up one day a while back with me also and I asked if it was Tom and sure enough it was. We chatted a bit.

One thing I can say is that I have had quite a few PSA products and still do and Tom and Jim were pretty amazing start to finish. Things have not changed

What's LS DZ scene?


But I am also a little more worried that they can't do LFE properly then worrying about watching the drivers dance. They are amazing speakers, but if they can't also play LFE I may have to return (if Jeff lets me) or sell them. If I would have know that upfront and if its not just an issue I am having, I would have gone 212HT's

They play LFE at and over reference just fine. I'm not sure I understand what you are worrying about in that regard.

Wow. SOWK and I were listening tonight at my house and I mentioned I had been experiencing some fatigue when listening at reference. I forgot about the -2.5bd eq filter at 2khz with q. At 1.0 on LCR since I set up then new pre pro. We were about to change the equipment out when he said lets try the eq drop at 2khz. so we did and...Crazy good now. The more power I add to this system the better complicated rock sounds. Yeah the easy dance mixes still sound good but the difference now on ollder rock CD's are just getting better above reference. The louder the better on stuff not usually good this loud. Heavy metal and rock is working really well right now. Dance and highly dynamic misic was always easy but listening to Queensryche which I never like too loud now suddenly is much better above ref. If you can build enough headroom not just in the subs but in the mains and subs you can make music that was never considered particularly dynamic suddenly sound really good.
