I recently picked up a new setup a what I thought was a great price. This was to replace an almost 10 year old Panasonic 5.1 HTIB that was no longer responding to IR commands. I have to say, even though the MSRP of the new equipment I bought totals over $5k, I am rather disappointed with the performance. Here's what I bought:
- Harman Kardon AVR 2650
- Klipsch Gallery G-28 x 3 (LCR)
- Klipsch Gallery G-16 x 2 (SL, SR)
- Klipsch SW-311
I really expected to be blown away by this system, but right now it honestly doesn't sound significantly better than the old $300 Panasonic I am replacing. I figure I have to be doing something wrong. The new system can get quite a bit louder than the previous, but I was hoping to get room filling sound. I've also heard people discuss how "in your face" the Klipsch horns can be, but I'm just not feeling it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I'm also dealing with an issue where I get a random "chirp" coming from the speakers when audio is being played. It gets louder relative to the volume, and only seems to happen when content is being played. I'm at a loss on this and I'm looking to you for help on where to start tracking this down. Let me know if there is any other info you might need.
Thanks in advance for your help!
