I no longer use the SMS-1. I use the MultEQ XT in my 3808.

Just a bit off-topic, but what are your thoughts using MultEQ XT vs the SMS-1 ? I, too, have the SMS-1 and have just ordered the Onkyo 876 receiver with MultEQ XT. I would like to know why you have chosen to bypass the SMS-1. Thanks.

I didn't see the need for 2 EQ stages. There are quite a few people that have also used the SMS in conjunction with MultEQ, I did not feel there was a need for it. I calibrated mine with the PRO kit, and the results were fantastic. Some people have argued that the MultEQ somehow ruined their low end response, and as a result used the SMS to add some more gain back into it.

I found that this was not the case for me and my 3808. If anything, the low end is much better with the MultEQ than it was with the SMS even after the firmware that helped lessen the steep rolloff of the SMS. I'm sold on Audyssey and won't even consider getting an AVR unless it has it, or until something better comes along.

I currently have a Def Tech setup. I am looking to change things up a bit though, and hopefully with be picking up a set of B&W 703's, HTM7, and DS7's. Although, I intend on keeping the SC's .

Great looking room! I like how you incorporated your sound in there. My parents still have those baseboard heaters in their house as well

I'm curious if you've auditioned anything except for the 703's? I used to sell the 703's and there are speakers in their price class and even well below which in my opinion best the 703's. What is it that you like about your SuperCube(s)? The size or the sound?

Just an mfw-15:


I might buy a second. But first I'm going to buy some room treatments. Sub in the room sounds bad at certain frequencies (massive amounts of boom)

No, actually it is one of two DIY subs I built in 07'. Here's a pic.



They don't go as low as a TRW but I did design them to go loud into the upper single digits inroom. Measured usable lowend output was around 7-8hz. Models show they are capable of 115dB at 10hz before any room gain. More info can be found in the DIY section here or in my sig.

Scott I think you missed his joke He was referring literally to the "fan" to the left of your screen in the first picture.

Figures. I never "get" anything this early in the morning after a few hours sleep. Must get a ceiling fan.

...and here I am getting all excited about people talking about my sub.

We don't care about your sub(s). We care about your thermal management.

The only thing I use on my subs is a Marchand BASSIS to extend the FR. I calibrated with Audyssey, and then ran some sweeps with TrueRta. I'll post pics of the screen shots. Sounds great.

You would be correct.

ThirdEye,

Thank you for the compliments.

I have auditioned the 804's, 703's (Really good deal on these if I decide to move forward with them), DT STS, and I will be auditioning Paradigm s6's tomorrow.

What did you have in mind?

I like the nice punch that they deliver, considering the compact size. So, I would say it is a combination of both. Also, there is nothing that could deliver their performance in the price range that I acquired them for (Little under 50% MSRP).

Seeing hard drives next to giant subs seems to be a common theme lately. Wiped hard drives anyone? HDD+magnet=fail

Hard drives contain some of the strongest permanent magnets you'll find in common use today. Its how the drive head is moved about the platter. Other magnets near drives really wont matter unless the outsider creates significantly high oersted readings at the drive platter.

I would be concerned about the serious vibrations these speakers create causing some head/platter related business.
