    Athena AS-F2 vs. Athena AS-F2.2?

    If I were to get the large AS-F2.2s as my new surrounds, would surround sounds be more prominent then my current setup? It's strange, but it seems like with a lot of DVDs I watch I hardly hear anything at all out of the surround speakers. And all my speakers have been calibrated using the Radio...

    Athena AS-F2 vs. Athena AS-F2.2?

    Has anybody (or a magazine or website) actually heard the new AS-F2.2s and compared them to the older AS-F2s? Do they sound the same? I know the new AS-F2.2s are slightly smaller, and has different cosmetic looks. My current setup is: front left and right = AS-F2s center = AS-C1 receiver =...

    Anybody have any Athena F2.2s yet?

    I've heard the only difference is the coloring scheme. Can anyone confirm this? Would they go nicely with my current 2 AS-F2s?

    Anybody have any Athena F2.2s yet?

    I have a pair of Athena AS-F2s and an AS-C1 as my front speaker setup. All three speakers are Athena's older line, the Audition 1. I'm looking to grab another pair of F2s for my rear. Do the new AS-F2.2 (Audition 2) sound the same as the older AS-F2s? Are they both timbre matched to one another...

    Basic question regarding region codes on DVDs.

    It's called Deep Purple: Live in Australia. It's a live concert DVD. I asked the Ebay seller where he got the DVD from and this is what how he responded, "I am sorry, that I cannot say. This item is from a lot of items which I have on consignment. The packaging does indicate that it is playable...

    Basic question regarding region codes on DVDs.

    ^^So you think this DVD will play on my region 1 DVD player? Also, where on the outside case would it specify either PAL or NTSC, because the Ebay seller said it didn't say on the case.

    Buy a Athena AS-C1 now, or wait until the newer version comes out w/ Neodymium?

    It is not broken in yet. I'd say I've put about 25 hours onto it so far. I've watched movies at moderately high levels and it sounds great. Regarding getting 3, some guy here has a setup of 3 AS-C1s across the front and he says it sounds great. Although, I highly doubt it can touch 2 AS-F2s...

    Basic question regarding region codes on DVDs.

    There is a DVD on Ebay I'm looking to bid on but the seller didn't specify what region the DVD was on the item page. So I emailed him asking "can you please tell me what region the DVD is." This is exactly how he responded: "The box says Region Code: 1/2/3/4/5/6 and Disc Format: DVD - 9. I...
