Can u recommend me a speakers for pc..i have budget of 150$ ?
Are you using a DAC or plugging straight into the computer?

There are other threads to get more ideas, but the Alesis Elevates didn't sound too bad for the price and size.

Too bad Eltax isn't listed. Got a surround set for 60 euro and they sound like 1000 euro speakers!
I found out they cost 800 euro brand new, holy crap did i get a ground breaking deal on them.

Model type is Eltax Universe 5.0, i heard they are pretty hard to drive at 4-8ohms and i can notice it with my older Sony receiver.
They do fine now with my Onkyo TX-SR607 wich only does 90W per channel though.

What? No Selah Audio owner's thread? Or maybe I missed it somewhere in the speaker's thread. Anyway I'm a happy owner of a custom made Selah center speaker that matches my song towers with the Hiquphon OW2 dome tweeters. I've been very impressed with the clarity and depth of this center speaker. This is a well built speaker with a solid cabinet with zero resonance. Built like a tank. Should last me the rest of my life.

There is a pic of my center speaker's portrait below.

And the description lifted from the Selah Audio website:

MKCC $995/each Designed with Seas drivers and a Hiquphon tweeter to match a customer's existing floorstanding speakers.

Edit: Took about 10 seconds to do a search - found the 'official' thread for Selah.

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/89-speakers/1035837-official-selah-audio-owner-s-thread.html

How about adding it to the 'official list' of this speaker owner's thread list?

From what I know he actually said that! If WC didn't say that -- well he should have. Fits him like a glove. He knew how to drink!

When I was a kid much of the stuff on TV was either 'Our Gang' or short movies like WC Fields/Mae West and The Three Stooges. I was 8yo in 1955 - cartoons weren't as common back then so kids watched whatever we could find - three main channels - when the weather was good (dry) we could get another 1-2 stations. Talk about nothing on!

A lot of the stuff WC and Mae West put on the screen were over my head at the time but it was still pretty funny stuff. I still watch WC Fields on occasion. I have all the Three Stooges episodes on DVD. Our Gang is also on DVD - got to buy all those one of these days too.

Hi , why isn't there a simply "Infinity" thread? instead of just 2 threads, one for Infinity "Beta's" and just one more thread for another model? I went into the "Beta" thread and noticed that almost no one posting on it actually had "Beta's"! I also do not know how to add a thread to page one here so......
If someone can, please move this to the appropriate existing thread. Or add a thread here on page one that's good for all Infinity models.
"My friends are joking that (This), is the beginning of my mid-life crisis"!! Others have simply called it; "The Sickness", But I've been planning this forever!
I just put a deposit on a pair of heavily upgraded and modified with todays tech., Infinity RS-1b's. With the "Monsoon" driver upgrade, New line source wiring and the crossover rebuilt and upgraded also. All drivers and cabinets in great working condition and currently being used. This is the second set of RS-1's. that the owner has. He's keeping the Original and un-modified set. I'll pick them up on the 1st of August 2017. That's a week and a half roughly from today. It'll be an nice roadtrip, about 1000 miles each way to pick them up. I am VERY excited about this because I've dreamed about building a system around these RS-1's. I've been dreaming about them for over 30 years since I first read about them in a magazine add circa mid 80's. And I'm still reading about how great they are after all these years!!
I do have a little anxiety and a few questions over placement and hooking them up and swapping equipment/cables to tweak the system, as I am kind of new to a separate component high-
end system. And I am going to be using some vintage equipment that I've recently purchased as I do have to be budget minded. Also I find some of the older stuff to be just plain, "Cool"! "All Hail EBAY!!!"
1) I understand that "if" the phase on the bass cabinets are hooked up wrong, "Incoming signal being out of phase to the phase switch on each cabinet". Once powered on by the 1500 watt onboard amp, all the woofers will go to "full power/full excursion" and will probably destroy all 6 transducers and cones whilst melting the voice coils in each cabinet. I'm not so sure my heart could handle that.
What is the best way to check signal phase from the amp as that will be the incoming phase to each cabinet? Do all pre-amp sections invert phase? Or is that just fairly common?
2) I am using a Marantz 6011 as the pre-amp. I called their support number but no-one there knows what I'm talking about.
3) I have two Rotel, RB1080's at 200 watts per channel I want to try bi-amping the RS-1's Hi/Mid cabinets with and a 5 channel Rotel, RMB-1095 at 200 watts per channel for my surrounds. I have the same problem with Rotel support as with the Marantz. And I see nothing in the manuals about phasing of signal path out.
4) I also have 2 Onkyo M-504's that I want to hear powering the RS-1's as well . AND AGAIN Their support is pretty worthless in this area!
5) Unfortunately I am the only person that I personally know that has the sickness, "Audiophilia", So I have no one to physically mentor me to help with this horrible affliction.
6) I am not one to go "nuts" over cables but from what I've been told that with these speakers and good equipment that I should at least try some "decent" cables. I did spring for some "Better Cables" Silver Serpents, but simply noticed a "brightness" that wasn't necessarily always a good thing with my system now, "Marantz, Rotel and Polk Audio RtiA9's". So I could use some advice so I'm not throwing away my money.
7) I looked on-line to see if I could buy a cheap meter to read the outgoing phase of signal from my Amps but have not found anything.
8) I "could" go from RCA interconnects to XLR's but I've never used that type of cable for home audio. Is there a benefit and if there is what exactly would that be?? How much would "decent" XLR cables set me back? Would using XLR's change the phase of signal? I only know that they change the "balance" because of how they are wired.
9) Would placement of the Hi/Mid cabinets do ok only 3 to 3.5 feet from front face of speaker to back wall. Could the problem be adjusted with an 32 band EQ without to much loss of musicality? Is it the rear firing tweeter that would suffer?
10) My room is 15'x37' with speakers on the 15' wall. What would my optimum distance apart be? measured center to center? Would the woofer cabinets be better in the corner or closer to the Hi/Mid cabinets like shown in the original manual? Remember these are "line source array now", not "Point source" like the original schematic.
11) This system is for a fairly equal balance of about 60% music and 40% H.T. in a 9.2.4 topology. Does anyone know what's next? Mayhap 10.3.8? Haa ha. but really? I am remodeling my H.T./listening room and can prewire accordingly.
11) I "DID" find a free app. for my tablet that says it's a "Phase Meter" but a BIG part of me does NOT want to trust a free app. off of the internet using the cheapo mic built into my tablet "Asus Zen". That reads signal phase FROM a speaker, "I could check all final phase before speaker with my current A9's before hooking up the RS-1's, I was wondering if maybe I could rent some type of unit to set this up and check all my gear from the "actual" gear or RCA cables. But I'm unsure of what to ask for or even what type of company that would rent such an animal.
ANY help, advice or thoughts would be highly appreciated.
Dazed and confused,
Scott
