REL S-series

Yes (two subs). if you spend some time with placement, two subs can work really well. I used the sound doctor test CD, but for the ambitious, REW software and a good microphone. Nonetheless, it was...

Impressive

Well, you and Gertjan are certainly improving the Olive experience. Maybe you should take over the company!
I might try moving the composers file over to our sole remaining 03HD. Latest rips have...

Question for GSR (or other HA-1 gurus) - I also (happily) own an HA-1 which I use as a DAC/preamp. Question: I assume the balanced (XLR) and single ended (RCA) outputs are available simultaneously?...

Enhancing bass - bi-amp with active equalization vs./plus sub?

OK, I suspect I know the answer but here goes:

In our main listening room I would like to get a little more bass response. Perhaps I am getting too used to the over-emphasized bass in the media...

Since you already have OPPO, why not use their HA-1 as a pre-amp? (I do). Meets all your requirements, and is more compact than the ones listed. Has an SNR of 120 dB in balanced mode (not that you...

Ha-1

I have the HA-1, but it goes directly to a power amp, not an integrated. Since you already have an integrated amp, the Oppo 105 might be a better match-up; you will get more over-all functionality....

Similar situation; strongly considering adding a sub. Main speakers are Aerial Acoustics 6T's which have a -3dB point of 35 Hz and -6dB at 30 Hz, so a reasonably full-range tower.

Keeping that in...

1 TB USB Drive

This issue has been noticed by several people on this forum (2 TB USB hard drive causing the Olive to freeze during back-up). The common solution, and one I used, is to use a 1 TB back-up disk....

Very good points, thanks. Since I like the Aerials, the next upgrade is the 7T's, which moves the -3dB point down to 28 Hz. Something to think about. Likely will try a single sub first (eval unit...

2 subs or one?

I will try to resurrect this thread and back to the original poster's question.

Summary of the thread so far: it appears worthwhile to augment most 2 channel systems with subwoofer(s).

I will definitely try this. Is this for backups created after software version 4.20? There was a big change - back-ups were no longer in '.tar' format.
