Great system. I have 3 101E's across the front, and 2 111E's as my rear speakers. I've found that Bryston amps do a great job for me. I also have 3 Seaton subs, calibrated by Mark.

I just read the rules. If we don't mention retailers or put in links, seems OK to post WHAT we paid. As long as we don't post WHERE we paid it.
If I'm wrong, then I apologize. But, as an end user,...

Actual prices paid for seating?

Would it hurt the integrity of the forum to publish the actual prices paid for your seats? It's hard to compare apples to apples without this information. The web sites all post the same prices, but...

I don't use the remote, either for the Oppo or the receiver. I did swap the cables, do a hard reboot and try different inputs on the Bryston. I don't use either the Oppo or Bryston remote, since...

Hi Bill
It's the digital output through the HDMI connection. I never use the analog outputs, preferring my Bryston SP3 to act as a preamp. That's mostly since I don't use CDs for music, but instead...

Wow! You have memory like an elephant to recall that I have MBL's. Turns out I found a single orphan 101e that I use as a center. Had Mark Seaton sell me 3 of his subs and tune them to the room. I'm...

Just saw a demo upgraded unit sell for a very low price on Audiogon. New model on the horizon, or just getting a little old?

If you're going to buy from the German company on EBay, I wouldn't do it. I was burned by then on a projector purchase. Only positive was that it was covered by a warranty.

I didn't measure. But my perceived brightness seems equivalent. The issue for me is that we used it as our TV. We really racked up the hours and there was perceptible dimming. I ran it and had it...

I have a microperfed 133" diagonal Studiotek 130 with an effective gain of about 1.1. In my, albeit light-controlled room, there are plenty of lumens.

Had a Superbowl party and one of the uninvited (teen) guests was sliding into position, very close to my MBL 101's. He got banished to the back row.

Wow! What a tremendous amount of work. I did it the easy way. I bought multiple subs from Mark Seaton and included room calibration in the price.
MUCH easier, and a better result to boot.
