DTS, Dolby True Audio. I didnt want to go unbalanced rca to xlr to all 7 channels. This usually creates that dreaded hummm noise.
I just found out Im going to have to replace my screen since the SH 50 are too wide to fit between the screen and the wall. So its getting rather expensive. These speakers impressed me so much that I havent gotten them out of my mind since I left. Thats how good they are. I know where someone can get 3 pristine DTS 10'S if anyone is looking. Im thinking of that TH221
Where did you hear the F -15 side by side 10 deep. Did you feel like Maverick???
Dhahran Air Base Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm in 1991. It was the largest ever Composit Wing ever assembled. Thats a Group of many different aircraft from all military branches. If anyone else has been there they can tell you how large that base was. It was very easy to get lost on base. The aircraft were lined up two abreast 50' apart one set after the other taking off. At that point I had never seen two fighters taking off together other than the Thunderbirds Airshow.
Ivan will have to answer this one. Trust me 4 hours of demo went by like it was only 10 miniutes. Just so much to see on a first visit and so many subs, mains etc. I took a camera with me and forgot to snap pics too.
omg so your telling the the TH 221 and the TH812 was on a single channel of the Danley 6.5k ?
Guys let me tell you what that is insane.
Yes. THe TH812 is a 4 ohm load, there was about 2200 watts "available" to it. The TH221 is a 2 ohm load so there was around 3200 watts "available" to it.
There is also no limiting in the system. It is a very raw and unprocessed system-no eq-only a highpass on the full range boxes and a high and low pass on the subs. No signal delay etc. So with alignment the "meshing" of the different boxes would be better.
The difference is sensitivity and low Freq extension. With mains and a sub as sensitive as the SH50 and TH221 you need surrounds that can keep up and the SH100 is the way to go
Danley Sound Labs
I went with the 4 SH 100 because I wanted all four surrounds to match when Im playing music. During movies there really isnt much coming out of the rears. So the first reason I went with them is for music.
With that said if you were blindfolded and heard the SH MICRO'S you would NEVER suspect such a wonderful sound to come out of the Micro's. They have it all really. Nice full mid bass and treble. With that said, If I was smart I wouldve went with 4 Micro's BUT I promised myself that this upgrade was a no compromise upgrade. This is my 3rd complete theater upgrade in 2 years and it gets expensive. This time im sure the speakers ive chosen will do me for many many many years. So dont let the small cabinet size fool you. The SH Micro design is a master piece.
Not yet but I will say it is in the cards. After I get my system up and running Im going to go back to Danley this time focusing on the subwoofer. My last trip was to here the trio SH 50 SH50 SH69. But I must say the TH 221 and the TH812 are great cabinets. It would be easier in my room to fit a TH812 since it is basically a DTS 10 with 60 inches on all 4 sides and 28 inches deep verses the 16 on the dts 10. So I could move my screen 12 inches closer to the seating area and it would fit. The TH221 is just sexy though.
