Thanks! I'm pretty excited about the Atoms. They seem like a nice little speaker. An update on my current situation. I have rounded up a couple more people to make some donations and have added more to the budget. I am leaning heavily towards the Denon 1613 for $305 because the MultEQ will be an instant upgrade to whatever sub is implemented. I have somewhere between $150 -$250 to put towards a sub which the Atoms will definitely need. Unfortunately that puts me in...
Well I pulled the trigger on the Atoms. I demoed them and was pretty impressed with the amount of sound they put out for such a small speaker. They definitely don't dig quite as deep as the mini monitors and will need to be crossed over with a decent sub at probably 80-100 hz depending on the room they're used in. Right now I'm debating whether or not to pull the trigger on an Onkyo 509 for $260 or jump on a Denon 1613 for about $305. The only reason I'm not jumping on...
Thanks afrogt. I do like Denon's receivers. My first receiver was a 1912 and I definitely enjoyed it before I made the move to the Onkyo 818 and passed it on to my younger brother. You raise a good point about MultEQ vs 2EQ. It might be unwarranted, but I am a bit leary of refurbished products just because they have already had something go wrong. I've had good success with used speakers, but I haven't gone the used or refurbished route with receivers yet. Have you...
Thanks for the input. Glad to hear that the 509 is working for you. It looks like you have a pretty nice setup. How do you like the Energy speakers so far? I'm also considering Energy bookshelves as a potential option for my friend. Possibly the CB-5's or CB-10's, although at this point if I can land the Atoms for under 200 that might be the better value. I can't say for sure though as I've never heard either the Atoms or Energy speakers. I can vouch for the Studio...
Need help putting together a speaker receiver combo for a friends wedding gift. One of my good friends weddings is coming up at the end of the month and I'd like to get him started on a HT setup for his wedding gift. He's coming from a Sony 5.1 HTIB. I'd like to get him started with a pair of speakers and a receiver. He can use his Sony speakers for surrounds, the Sony sub, and a phantom center setup until he upgrades down the line. Unfortunately I'm working with a...
One of my good friends weddings is coming up at the end of the month and I'd like to get him started on a HT setup for his wedding gift. He's coming from a Sony 5.1 HTIB. I'd like to get him started with a pair of speakers and a receiver. He can use his Sony speakers for surrounds, the Sony sub, and a phantom center setup until he upgrades down the line. Unfortunately I'm working with a limited budget. $500 is really maxing out what I can spend on speakers and a...
With the 818 you're only going to get 7 channels. There are pre-outs so you could run 9.1, but you're going to need an external amp for that. I definitely like the receiver thus far. I probably will add an external amp at some point just to give myself more headroom. I really don't push the receiver and there is still room for me to up the volume some more, but I don't just to be on the safe side in terms of clipping. Even with being conservative, in 90-95% of cases...
No problem. Glad it helped. If you have any other questions just let me know. Pm might be the best way to get a hold of me.
I've had the 818 for a while now and am very happy with it. XT 32 really did an outstanding job. It was most notable in tightening up the low end, but the mids and highs cleaned up a bit too. It has quite a bit of power and the interface is pretty user friendly. I'm definitely satisfied thus far.
Well I decided to pull the trigger on a new piano black CC-690 v5. I found an open box deal for $1,100 from an authorized dealer with full warranty. It should be delivered tomorrow. I can't wait to get it set up and paired with my 60's! So excited!
