Worst part is sanding as that can make quite a bit of mess. I have an attic, so it is much easier for me to modify anything I need to with the ceiling speakers.



Exactly what I did with the...

That is part of their DI series, which are infinite baffle. What you are looking for is their reference ( R ) series... RLS, RCS, and RSS. These are enclosed units.

It looks like, at least to me, that the D-Sonic amps aren't as tall or deep as the XPR-5. The XPR-5 is 9.5" tall and weighs over 100 pounds. Since the amp section in the Denon X7200 is so anemic, I...

I've been thinking about selling my Emotiva XPR-5 and trying a D-Sonic M3-4000-7, but I'm not sure whether it would be an upgrade or not considering the non-ICE modules. Mainly need a 7 channel amp...

The Lx series was the top of the consumer line back in the early 1990's. Not sure how they would stack up today against the newer JBL consumer line stuff. I still have a pair of L7 that I'm using as...

Emotiva doesn't feel the need to include a subwoofer output for any of their studio monitors because they have a line of DACs and most subwoofers have a pass-through with adjustable crossover. The...

The Emotiva alliance with Bob Carver was short-lived, so no telling when, or IF, Emotiva will ever have a line of tube amps. I personally think they should just stick with A/B amplifiers and not get...

I usually recommend Energy Take Classic 5 channel system ( $300 ) as an alternative to Creative or Klipsch PC systems. The center is small enough, at just over 4" tall, to fit under a typical PC...

It is such a horrible photo composition-wise that just about any colors the viewer sees would be correct. Looks like it was taken on a digital camera circa 1998 and looks like a lot of stuff that I...

I think Parasound has their Z line ( zDac + zAmp ) but that is a two-box solution. I was looking to upgrade my 2.1 PC-based setup last year and ultimately went with Emotiva since their CS is...

The Teac A-H01 is the only thing that comes to mind as far as integrated amp and DAC, but it is rather weak at 22w x 2 at 8 Ohms.

I don't think the 960 will be that much weaker than the 760. Both core and memory clocks are higher but that might not be enough to make up for the loss of 128 cores and 32 TMUs. I'm pretty sure...

I have the DC-1 DAC.

You'll need a subwoofer that has an active crossover. Most decent subs do. SVS subs have adjustable active crossovers, so that is the brand I went with. Both the XLR and RCA...

Not sure how that would work, actually. I have bi-poles up front, so I get reflections from the front. You wouldn't have that with direct-radiating and that might make the back surrounds stand out....

Then get the SM 450 in the link above for $250 a pair AND plan on adding a better sub later on. I'd recommend the SVS SB1000 sub at $500 shipped new. Then again, you are going to use a receiver,...

They appear to be Sansui but they don't look like any Sansui speakers I have ever seen. They made some pretty decent stuff back in the 1970's, so these might be from the 1980's or maybe White Van...
