The beginning of the Tron disc before the movie, where they have the explosion above the Disney castle? Well I noticed that effect right away with some of the explosions anchored to the screen, and what seemed to explode well above and just outside.
At that point I have not ran the calibration program yet.(and still haven't)
During some conversation in the movie, I can say I understand what you mean with the center channel being inferior. With the combination of left/right & height speakers, they seem to drown out the center channel, but again, no calibration ran yet.
Lazy me, added a few db's to the center, so that I can mess around for awhile.
You may want me to get right down to the point of it. Do I think they are worth it? I'm at a crossroad with answering that one. The price I paid for the RX1's, then the answer would be 'hell yes, its worth it', and remember I also got a great deal on the 2channel amp I am using with the heights.
Remember my odd configuration?
AVR powering the front 3
(3) 2channel amps for the heights, sides and rear surrounds.
I believe a person would really have to love the effect to pay full price to set it all up.
If the silver1's happen to be some extra speakers, as if someone decided to use all FX's, instead of silver1 in their surrounds, then I think that would sound incredible. .. lol
Also, when I said I am as a crossroad with this setup, I seriously feel that the RX1’s are being underutilized. I really feel they are some fantastic speakers. They really wow me. What I get from the RX2’s, I’m rather expecting them to perform the way they do.
When I gotten the RX1’s home, I tested them in my bedroom and they crushed the klipsch synergy towers I have in there.
I really look forward to your thoughts when your room is complete, but I already know you, You more than likely already priced out another system.. lol
And although you may have already priced out another system, I have a feeling something from your current MA setup isn’t going anywhere, and will be used somewhere in your house. (Silver 10’s or Silver 1’s)?????
