After bashing about in my mind the Audio Technica, the Riga and some other USB type models I actually just went to the local high end shop and looked at their trade ins.. Found a Dual 606 and I am tickled pink over it.. All in it was $162.. Found one ebay seller close to me who has over 300+ LPs on sale at any given time for $5 to $10 and we struck up a side conversation where he thinks the new Turntables are not comparable to the late 70's early 80's models. I have a...
I have had a copy of this little fellow for about 2 months now and think is is a very good deal for the $155 I paid (NewEgg.ca) . Had a surplus 120G SATA III SSD and bought a 8G el cheapo stick and a $19 wireless mouse / Keyboard at a local computer shop and it was set. Right now it is straight version 12 - XBMC (for the last month) This weekend I will be wiping it for a XBMC / Win 7 dual boot PC. Bios update was required to get 5.1 audio through HDMI for me. As noted...
Not that I can hear.. The chairs do rattle at domething below the 80hz cut off.. But the floor not than can be perceived. It is the standard 1/4ish inch foam. This floor is 15yrs old and is the glue type and 8mm thick if that is of any additional incite to you.
It is actually click wood on concrete so resonance is close to zero. The rear riser is so high so as to hold the collection of fold down chairs my wife has accumulated.. They occupy the entire 20"x 10' crawl space.. Save for the Polk 10" buried at the very end. I thought I would try and extend the live of the RX-V459 by buying one of those 4 port HDMI switch with optical output. So far it has not been a positive experience. I may just have to break down and buy the...
ET700XE was oversold by the seller so offered a TW-536 for the same $400 I took the offer but do not see a direct thread on that projector here.. Although unlike the ET700EX, the TW-536 is listed on the Optoma site and has equivalent specs save for a contrast ratio of 3000:1 vs the 4000:1 of the ET700EX and its siblings.. Doubt I would ever perceive the difference.
So this is the end result... My only dilemma now is whether to get a HDMI receiver or work with a HDMI/SPDIF 4 or 5 port switch.. The Component cable is cumbersome and the switching of the digital audio is limited by the RX-V459.. The Blueray, Nfusion are already HDMI capable but I am using component switched by the 459 and I have to share the SPDIF/analog input for one component port and the apple TV which feeds the projector HDMI port directly.. OK for me to switch...
I got everything placed last night... Well in the Movie room anyways . Still have to get the living room reconnected.. The Ikea stands were perfect. The top of the center is about 3" below the bottom of the screen. The sub placed behind and under the couch is just stunning.. I did not think that the subs reverberating off of furniture make that much of a difference. Used the final scene of transformers III as the test piece on the apple TV. Still have to set up the...
I just had a smack my forehead moment.. The Current fronts (Polk Rt4i) are on concreat Ikea 18" speaker stands I picked up 4 or 5 yrs back.. Since I will be moving the polks to the back I will have the 2 free stand available to hold the center.. Problem solved.. Thanx for the catalyst to put 2+2 together on this. Here is the room from 18 months back, showing the M10's as fronts and an old passive SW.. The Polk SW now sits center below the screen. (The yellow circles...
There is a crawl space behind the back couch. It will be a heck of a job to get it back there though. I think the crawl space is 18" and the sub it 14" wide I have read that it is OK for a sub to be buried as the lows are not attenuated that much and it adds some rumble to the seats. Have to try searching the forum for that I guess.
Need some help on positioning the center from a mounting / fastening stand point. Background – You can skip to question below if you want.. ======================= We have a 10 x 15 theatre in the basement. There are 2 couches (one raised 14") , the front couch is only 4.5 feet from the screen. Currently there are Polk Rt4i s in the front, an older generic small center, fastened above the screen , and 2 Polk M10’s for the rear and a Polk 108 sub all driven by a 2006...
