This could be the new reference soundtrack. Great dynamics, aggressive LFE and very active surrounds. Plus it's a great shoot 'em up too. Definitely not as cheeseball as Sly's.

Not gonna do another one. I'm as happy as a pig in a peach orchard. It sounds even "tighter" now. The last cal was great. Chris finally replied to me and said the numbers are fine. Plus your suggestion of Audyssey flat was spot on. In fact, I'm thinking of firing up a BD in a bit. Have a craving for The Thing prequel.

Wabo, what is up!!! It's been a while...

I've got a quick question for you, I also posted this in prepress' thread since he's also running a pair of 501's. Do you consider them neutral or a bit on the warm side? My friend is thinking about getting a pair. What other speakers (if any) have you considered to go with the 501's?

Thanks!!

What's happening, D²?

Would this "friend" happen to be the one and only double d?wink.gif The 501's are a very musical amp. They may be just a bit on the warm side, but I hesitate to say that. The 501's are perfect for my Martin Logan speakers. I never get listening fatigue, and I do enjoy turning it to 11. I've seen several setups pairing the 501's and SF's. B&W is another speaker that pairs great to Mac amps. In fact, Fine Sounds, the parent company of Sonus Faber and Audio Research, recently purchased McIntosh from D&M Holdings. I believe this is a much better place for Mac to be. So when do you take delivery of your new amps?

My new Alien Anthology Steelbook arrived today. And it came with a friend.biggrin.gif

post #1090 of 1294
LOL, you're killing me!!

No it's not me, but how can anyone say no to such beauties... It is a friend of mine, he's going all out on his room: 19' x 30' x 11' tall, 137" Stewart screen, 2 rows of 5 seats each, 3 ea JL fathoms, the whole shmiegel-biegel... He's set on either a pair of SF Amati, Elipsa or Revel ultima salon 2 although he wants to give Thiels's flagship 3.7 a listen. It's just hard to do that here in Sac, he'll have to drive to San Francisco and I will most likely go also 'cause I'm a sucker for that kind of stuff....

Thanks for the input on the 501's, Charles is of the same opinion as you. As usual, you guys have been really helpful !!

Hey Franin,

Never made it to The Hobbit. Did you?
post #1096 of 1294
Hobbit was AWESOME!!!

Wabo,

With your 501 monos: did you use bi-wiring, bi-amping or conventional connection to your ML's. If you did use any of the bi-, did you notice a difference??

How's it hangin', D²?

I bi-wire from my 501's to the ML's. Just for shoots and giggles, awhile back I switched out the speaker cables to standard connections and put the jumpers back on the speaker terminals. I noticed a difference right away. So back to bi-wireing I went. What you have up your sleeve?

Any big plans for the game tonight?

Thanks Wabo, Mike(kahuna) said exactly the same thing. I'm helping my friend, he ended up getting the BW 800 Diamonds, Mac 601 monos and a C48 preamp. He did invite me to see the big game on his 156" but I'm having a couple of really good friends come over, they're bringing slow cooked (8 hours) baby back ribs, fried rice and a bottle of Woodford Reserve over. I'll be happy watching it on my 60"... Hell, I can't believe the freaking niners are in the superbowl, it's been a while. Are you having a big party?

That's quite a system "your friend" wink-wink, is putting together. I'd love to see pics of it when you're he's ready.biggrin.gif

What a game last night. Even though the 49ers lost, you were a winner with slow cooked ribs and the Woodford Reserve.cool.gif We just went over to a neighbors house for homemade chicken tacos and beer.
post #1102 of 1294
Haha!!

Seriously, it's not mine... I wish...

I will post some pics though, because it's an awesome room. We're still working on it. As I was saying in Charles' thread, my initial impression was that the 800's are a tad too bright. Incredibly detailed, clean and powerful, but definitely on the bright side. But those Mac monos are freaking unbelievable, pictures don't do them justice they are simply beautiful...

I'm going to crawl out of my deep hole just to say that the niners definitely looked like sissies out there. Baltimore made us their bitch... Had Jim H. not cut the power cord behind the niners' bench to cause the blackout comeback, it would have probably ended 34 to 6. How weird was that game?!?

I definitely want to see some pics of your friends system. Sounds like it will be off da hook. Besides the amps and speakers, what other gear will he be using? Yeah, the 601's sure are purty.

Lol. When the blackout happened the conspiracy theories started flying at our get together. It's amazing what beer and tequila can conjure up.biggrin.gif

Hi Franin,

I'm doing well. How're things Down Under? My kids and I watched a Scooby Doo movie where the gang is in OZ attending a music festival, only to be wrapped up in the Yowie Yahoo vampire mystery. Made me think of you.biggrin.gif The AVP is still impressing me every day. Did the new 3 minute update last week. How about yours? Watch anything good lately?

You can't go wrong with scooby doo, we enjoy them. Don't think I've seen the one you have watched, will have to look for it. It's good to see Shaggy and Scooby down under there is a mystery to be solved everywhere.

You know that 3 min update was for pioneer systems. It's good to see Denon is still actively updating the pre amp. Just to think a member ( who doesn't even own an AVP ) wanted to sunset the thread from a sticky.

Watched 007 Skyfall the other night awesome Pq and Aq. I think Daniel Craig is the best bond.

Scooby rocks. Perhaps you can take the lil' Franins camping at Vampire Rock,biggrin.gif http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0357139/

I don't own anything Pioneer. But kudos to Denon for the continued support. Lol. Yeah, why he came into the AVP thread and said that is bizarre.

I do like Craig as Bond, but Connery is the best.

Thanks for that ill have too look into that scooby doo movie.
Yeah I found it a bit strange how he posted that. I could not understand why he cared if its a sticky. I'm not big on Sean Connery, ill guess ill be the same when they will replace Craig further down the track. People will be saying the new bond is better than Craig and I will be supporting Craig.
