I know when I returned the S3000i (with mixed emotions that I continue to have today), you kidded me that someday you’d have a S14400 or something I might want to audition ;). Little did I know the...

Are these the only two pieces you are having trouble with? Are these problems only on a CD, or is it the same with music downloads? Not every artist takes care to ensure that the sound engineering...

You did do pretty good ... EXCEPT for your subwoofer choice. Spending 7 grand on a home theater system, while putting only $900 in subwoofers doesn’t make sense, unless it’s a small room (under...

My mistake. I thought the OP went with the R5Bi’s. Didn’t realize he opted for what you recommended (which I thought was a good recommendation, btw).

Thanks, ShadyJ! I've listened to this passage countless times, but never saw it :).

BTW, there is a second passage at around the 3:27 mark that’s even more intense.

Yes. There is a natural tympani drum with an underlying synthesizer. The subs that failed, played only the tympani and missed the synthesizer. It's a curiosity as to why. Since Mike Oldfield is...

^ I would expect it to be of the same quality or better. Others that have downloaded this piece for testing may have used Apple, Amazon or some other service.

I test all the subs I’m interested in with one piece of music. That is Mike Oldfield’s “Shabda” from his “Music of the Spheres” CD. Don’t know why this is such a demanding piece for subwoofers, but...

For me, a one-year warranty is a nonstarter. One year warranties are hardly standard. Even the budget BIC PL200 has a 5 year warranty on the amp (and 8 years on the speaker). RBH should at least...
