I don't know of those speakers, but a sign of a good speaker is when the recording is bad, the speaker will tell you as no forgiving

Are we talking about streaming?
On my system, only original CD or Blu-ray get played.
No streaming, download or mp3 as they all sound bad to me due the compression of their recording format.

My speakers, amp and processor have no forgiveness at all.
What is in the recording is there, good and bad.

Hope this make it a little more clear of what I meant

That's what I was thinking. I wasn't sure if streaming the same files that would be on the CD through the media server would be compressed or keep their original format.

Personally I don't like that reciever. I installed one for the owner of the company I manage, and If you plan on using the app control a lot it isn't worth a whole lot and the onscreen menus could be a lot better. But this is just my opinion. I would go with denon or pioneer if it were me.

I don't have any experience with those speakers though, so no input on that.

All streaming or download have some compression, some more than the other.
I am no expert since I do not download anything.

In the days of Laser Disk, if you had the choice between a Dolby recording or DTS.
Must audiofile would pay more for the DTS version since there was less compression.
Now a day, thanks to Blu-ray, it does not matter since both format are supose to be compression free. Somehow, I always prefer the DTS version.
Maybe I am missing something.

Anyhow back to topic and show our systems

I actually haven't even watched a blue ray on my new set up. Would an xbox one be a good player, or would I be better off getting a standalone unit for blue rays?

Also I have another question.
Say I am watching Xfinity TV at a volume level of -20 db wich seems to be about a normal listening volume. Then if I switch to any other source, boom it's probably 3 times as loud, at the same -20 db level.
Im assuming it has something to do with the cable box itself? (Xfinity X1)
I am using a elite VSX -70

My current set is:
Main- Def Tech BP7006
Center-Def Tech CLR2002
Rear-- Older Polks

Im thinking about upgrading my BP7006's to either the Kef R700, Kef R300 with a sub, Wharfedale Jade 5, or Polk LSI707. I do not have the ability to demo all of these so itll be hard to make a decision. Id really appreciate some help from people that have heard or currently have any of these models. I currently have a OPPO BDP-105, Cary SLP03, Emotiva XPA-5, and Emotiva UMC-200. I mainly listen to music and play a blu ray here and there. My room isnt the best for acoustics- the living room opens to the kitchen area and I have vaulted ceilings. The Jade 5's have gotten great reviews and like the fact that placement for this speaker doesn't really effect the sound. Cant wait to hear back. Thanks again for the help!

info please

I have a pair of original Tempests and I have decided to use the Audrie plans for a sealed .707 Q setup. I also have a Marchand Linkwitz transform so I will be able to change Q and boost low frequency response if needed. Has anyone used the plans with the original Tempests and if so what what were the results?

The drivers will be driven by a Hafler P 6000 delivering 500 watts rms at .09 % distortion into a 4 ohm load which is what the drivers are.

I have a Yamaha V659 and it's served me well for a number of years in my HT system. Solidly built, good sound and features. No HDMI but that's not an issue for me. I have some Wharfedale Diamond 10.5s and they are nice, but I am selling them as they have been replaced in my two channel setup by PSB Imagines.

Trust your ears. If the setup sounds good to you, that's all that ultimately matters. At some point you will get the upgrade fever, but that's typically tempered by your budget, your ear, your listening space, and expansion of your knowledge base.

There is a considerable difference between idiocy and ignorance. The differential diagnosis may be summed up as following - the idiot is incapable of learning while ignorance is an eminently curable condition assuming the ignorant one is willing to learn. I have the feeling that you are willing to learn. I suspect you will discover your "dasein" has other plans in mind.

Very well said!
At first I could not get where the "not idiot" came from untill I read "lawdogg" signature.
Very few of us have nothing to learn and I am always welcoming new lessons!

How about?
I'm a newbie and an aspiring ignorant, that want to learn the in's and out of audio and video!

I would think that it would show that you are willing to learn while new to the hobby.

Hi

After been using Mirage M1-si as fronts for years, Mirage m3-si as rears, Polk Audio CS1000 as center and Velodyne DD15 as sub i changed it to:

Sunfire
Fronts CRS3C
Center CRS3C
Surround CRS3C
Heights CRS3
Wides CRS3
Back surround CRM2Bip
Subwoofers 2x TS-EQ12

Ive been using the Integra 80.3 prepro and have been able to just use either wides or heights.
Now im looking to buy the new Onkyo 5530 to try to setup the Sunfire with Dolby Atmos.
