Kahuna's Theatre - Page 10

post #271 of 281
Are you worried at all about moving the subs closer to the BD player? I've always subscribed to the notion that you keep anything vibrating away from a disc drive. If you can't have you thought about maybe a stabilizing platform for the Oppo? Maybe something like the CF-2010 from VH Audio?



edit Oops, that's the reference shown.

Just curious because the price of the Absolute seems to only be a marginally more than the Silver Eclipse and it is a copper/silver hybrid as well.

I wanted to try an all copper Speaker wire...Someone who's opinion I respect recommended it...only on Speaker wires...and so far I am really impressed.

I am using single Satori's on the rears, "True" shotgun on the front 3. I have the Hologram IIs in a single on my 2 channel as well. The Absolute's have Silver, which I was trying to stay away from...it is still a work in progress...I may do an A/B test with something else down the road...

My turntable however, is another story...when I really crank my 2 channel room listening to vinyl, I am getting some feedback/thump...so more vibration control is called for...the joys of a wood house!biggrin.gif

Ha. When I was a junior in college, I got a taste of -27°. Fortunately, not much wind.

Mike,

Thanks for answering my PM. That helped a lot...

Hey Kahuna. Your setup is still my favorite on AVS, and I'm basing my theater off of yours. Even my wife is on board. biggrin.gif
Anyway, I just got a Mac Mini to be a music server (finally can play FLAC!) and a VPN (installed Server), among other things. It is the latest Mini version that I got off of CL for a great deal.

So I was wondering how you have been liking yours, and if you have any tips in regards to streaming from it, or software you use. I don't see much on that mach2music option. I've been using Audiovana >HDMI>Pioneer Elite and it sounds great.

Hey KahunaCanuck!

First off awesome B&W setup you've got there! I think you've got the abosulte best front end speakers made for HT!

I noticed you got a new low profile stand just what I was looking for, is that a Steve Bline Designs stand?

How do you find their quality and what finish is that top?

Thanks,
scanido
