If it is bright enough at those settings then what will you do when the lamp dims? Aiming to run with the aperture fully open and in high lamp from the off leave you no headroom. If the screen...

I'm kind of the same myself; although mine are only tiddlers compared to most on here I can't see value in ID subs now for me. The only issue I do have is that if you need to sell for any reason then...

The UK distributor and installer of Lyngdorf products suggests this method mainly to improve 2 channel performance, but it is still used in an HT system. I'm just relaying what other people have...

There is a Lyngdorf 2.2 integrated (digital) amp (TDAi 2170) that includes room perfect, which is around £,2500 in the UK.

If you can live with the high lamp noise, then you could go a little bigger than mine, but even then you'll still be on the low side (especially if you take 1.0 as the realistic screen gain). I'm...

I used to run an X35 at 128" diagonal, but my screen has some gain (supposedly 1.5, but I think nearer 1.2 is realistic). At 600+ hours on the lamp (lamp dimming is very slow on these models) I could...

I don't know if the Yamaha AVR has the option to set a different sub level for stereo use (my Arcam AV processor allows this). If so I would ignore the 5 channel stereo setting (I've no idea why...

Can't see it myself, especially as most buyers will be expecting it to be the same price or cheaper than the current '55.

My current layout is such that I have a good 2.5 metres behind the sofa for the surround backs (the side surrounds are level with the sofa), so it isn't a set up where they are right on top of me.

It generally results in a downwards slope of the measured gamma response (which typically would be a flat horizontal line if using the popular 2.2/2.3 gamma). What this means is that the brighter...

Just a thought; is there room to turn the subs 90 degrees so that perhaps two of the outside ones point to their nearest side wall? While subs are omnidirectional, there is another thread about...

They're great little speakers aren't they? :)

After my 818 it'll take more than a couple of extra built in power amps to dissuade me from looking at Marantz or Denon for my next AVR. :rolleyes:
