Too bad, since it does look completely dust free.


Hope you took off the cover without the power on/plug-in, and put the power on just for the picture, after you did remove the cover


Good luck to try to sell-it.
I still have an Onkyo PRS Pro886, that cost me $2000 CDN and been collecting dust for close to 3 years.

I let it run with the cover off. Figured I gave it every chance possible to stay cool. It just sat on the counter there with the cover off it never went back in my rack / wall unit.

Living Room: Aperion Grand Verus, Outlaw LFM-1 EX, 70" Sharp Aquos +more

Cover always off? I wouldn't do that. It's engineered to be part of the airflow for cooling, and certain sections may actually get hotter without it. Then there's the risk of someone or something shorting it out...not worth the risk.

Been doing the diy route...new to it and wish I have done it a long time ago. Surprisingly easy with absolutely no experience.

2 Full Marty's
2 Flex 12's - using as MBM'S
2 DIY soundgroup MBM's
4 Volt 8 LX
3 SHO-10 currently for the front stage

Getting ready to build 2 volt 8's for atmos speakers and eventually fusion 12's or 15's to replace my sho's.

If you think, it might have an overheating issue, very possible Since my Marantz AV8801 AV processor is know to run very hot, and I believe the Denon might be design similar to Marantz.


You can always take a look at these;
https://www.coolerguys.com/products/...3pin-connector (I run 4 of these, 2 for the AV processor and 2 for the amp)
And to control them
https://www.coolerguys.com/collectio...ol-led-display ( I got the dual one, since the single can run 2 and the dual can run 4).
Programmable for how warm and cool temperature, so they do not run all the time.


Depending on how close they would be to listening area, you might hear them slightly during very quiet scene, they are not very loud, but you can hear them if too close to them ( I do not have this issue, since my gears are in-wall).


A cheap and effective way to prevent overheating.

Nice setup. Along with the Fusion 15s, you should also look at the HTM-12s.

Always liked Maggies. Gosh, haven't listened to any in many years. Great speakers for the price.

You have a very nice system according to the list of equipment's, on your signature.
This must be quite a man cave, if you are actually installing urinals in your bathroom


Just ceiling speakers, if you want to go that far!!!
Just like a real theater, if you have to go so bad, go and come back has fast as possible to enjoy the show



Pictures?

There are RULES in the cave! Beer drinking turns into drunks possibly peeing on my throne seat! NO PEE on my THRONE!

I'll get some pics up, part of this process is cutting concrete to run plumbing. This is currently whats being done so it looks like hammered crap, pun intended...

LOL...my brother put a urinal in the back bathroom of his home when he did the major renovation/rebuild/addition at the time he bought the somewhat historic home in Durham NC. Years later his girlfriend moved in and thought it was offensive. It's his house, his bathroom and has worked out fine. She stays out of it and uses the main bathroom.

Two JBL L7's, nothing fancy, and no sub woofer.

I don't get into surround sound but I really like the sound of the L7's when I compared them to dozens of speakers and tried several at home back in the mid 90's, and for movies they just explode. But I'm more into music and these just sounded the best for the kind of music I listen to. One thing for sure, I'm not advertising these since they haven't been made in a while!

Nice little story to share
Some people now a day, do get offended, Way too easy.
At least it work out fine with a simple solution, without re-doing some renovation

I also have a pair of DCM Timepiece Speakers which I didn't mention, but they're in a different room with a different system, they're not quite up to the sound standards of the JBL L7's though, and they need to be refoamed which I haven't gotten around to that since I use the main system all the time anyways, which is why I didn't mention them.

Yamaha RX-V3079 just used as a preamp for now, but will use its powered channels for extra surround and height speakers, for Atmos, later.

Subs don't go low, but they have more than enough power. Thinking of swapping for a couple of subs that can dig down to <15hz at reference levels without working them too hard. But that's gonna be expensive, so sticking with my current subs for now.

Stereo only, Mirage OM-5's. Presently in the process of finding replacement mids. Hope to get some new ones in next week. Also Boston Acoustics T 1000's. I like the Mirages better, unless I'm right in the sweet spot for the Boston's, then they're nice too.
