Hey guys, it's me again after more than 2 years.
Im brazilian and Im going to New York March the 1rst. And I intend to do some audio shopping, oh yeah!
I already bought me a pair of CMT-340's by Ascend Acoustics, looking into buying a third one for central speaker. The surrounds will be some Klipsch's for now borrowed from my dad because I already have waaaaaaaayyyyyy too much to carry back to Brazil, so my plan of CBM-170's for surrounds will be postponed. But I'll be needing something to drive 'em. From what I hear, them Ascend Acoustics are quite easy driven...
So, what we are (I am, and hopefully you'll help with some input
) looking for here is:
- 3D ready
- Good 1080p upscaling
- 7.1 channels ready, if it can support a second subwoofer it would also be nice.
These three aspects are a must. I know these features are pretty standard, and here's what I'm looking for:
1: Audio quality is my top priority, I'm looking for the best audio quality I can get.
2: Room correction/Nice Room Setup options and interface. That's my second priority... which is kinda very intimately related to the first one, I reckon. Last time I checked (like a year ago) I was leaning towards the Sheerwood Newcastle R-972 because of Trinnov.
3: Reliability, since I'm taking these to Brazil the warranty won't help me, so I gotta keep away from products that often have to go to the doctor.
4: Nice connectivity and good menus/interface.
I don't care much for networking, and a bunch of video processing feats cause it'll be pretty much running stuff from my PC and I expect my 440 bucks video card to be able to handle that! The 1080p upscaling is important tho, because of the fact I can't get 1080p/60 frames 3D I'll have to do 720p for 3D gaming, and I don't want my projector upscaling it, cause it'll do a stinky job.
Once again i want to reiterate - I'M NOT AFRAID OF USED, REFURBS OR OPEN BOX PRODUCTS. I am inclined on buying a used one so I could get the best value possible if the seller is trusty - and , at least here, ppl tend to be.
That's it, I guess the post got kinda big, sorry! Thanks and looking forward for some help!
