Ever have problems with the center and dialog when watching movies? I have a Pioneer vsx-1018 receiver and after calibrations I usually have to crank the center up some in order to hear the dialog. I am an apartment dweller and can't have my stuff at reference levels.
2. Where'd ya get those surrounds? Any particular reason you didn't get the matching ones? Any problems with them matching the other speakers? I just haven't been able to justify the cost of the matching Klipsch surrounds. I'm still using my Quintet's for surrounds. In fact, the only way I was able to get my Rf-62's was because Bestbuy has some type of error where I got them for $100 each. And the 12 digital sub for $200. It was the deal of a lifetime.
Hey man, I't's funny you mention that, because I actually did experience that when I was using a receiver in my theater (Denon AVR-4310). It happened right after I ran Audyssey. My problem was that I used too few mic positions when running the auto-setup. I would definitely use as many positions during the setup as your receiver allows...i can almost guarantee it will improve overall sound, and dialogue intelligibility significantly.
I didn't get the matching surrounds because 1) I wanted towers and the matching surrounds are bookshelves; and 2) these towers are midrange powerhouses. I think the mid-to-high frequencies are the best to focus on for surrounds, and these fit the bill nicely. You got a pair of RF-62s for $100 each? That is the DEAL OF THE CENTURY!!!!

Do you have any issues with the Integra?
Greetings! I absolutely love the Integra DHC-80.2. It's perfect in nearly every way. The only one issue I had with it early on was that its analog AND digital inputs (i tried both) placed a slight delay on the audio signal when, and ONLY when, I sent it a signal from the Sonos Digital Music Zoneplayer. I experienced this issue with no other source.
I mentioned it to the good folks on the Integra DHC-80.2 Official Forum, and the folks who tested it also came up with the same delay. Thankfully, purchasing a DAC fixed the problem. Outside of that, it has worked like a charm. I will be using this technical masterpiece for years to come.......or until HDMI 1.5 makes me buy again. lol
