Been some time i have not posted on here or been following any post. I have just upgraded my Speakers from JTR (Hissing Noise is driving me Nuts).
My Current Setup:
Danley SH50 (Front Left & Right)
Danley SH69 (Centre)
Danley SH100 (Rear)
Seaton Subwoofer X 2 (Setup at the front Screen)
My current problems or weakest link in the chain seems to be the Pre-Amp Processor Onkyp PR
SC 5509 its terrible with 2 channels and watching movies is boring and audyssey has seem to add more noise on the upper regions of the frequency, yes the sound stage feels wider but the tones feel more edged out and has a slight ear screeching noise on tone tones.
I know processors are not holding value well after few years; this is something I must factor in as this hobby is expensive in its own right..
Even thought I would like a very good 2 channel I am thinking it’s a wiser choice to just settle for a dedicated 2 channel pre-amp which also allows me further flexibility. Even though 2 channel is important I need the processor to do its job on the multi channels.
The ones which seem to be an option for me are the following:
Anthem DV2 (With ARC)
Denon AVP (With audyssey)
Or Arcam FMJ (No Correction System??)
My Amplifier is a Ultra Quiet ATI 3007 Monster, It performs flawlessly and has a very black background compared to my previous Emotive Amps which are noisy as hell. I am looking for a fully balance setup. Something which will last me for at least 3-4 years till its time for another upgrade.
If I go with the Arcam is possible to buy a DSP unit which can correct the room problems. My Room is heavily treated with Bass Traps and Panels so I don’t know how much more this would help?
My Importance are,
Bug Free as much as possible with Reliability and flexibility
Fully Balaned (If possible)
Plays all Audio Codecs.
I will be importing this into Indonesia where I live currently.
