    Elac Debut 2.0 or Uni-Fi 2.0 bookshelf?

    I set up a 5.1.4 layout with the SuperZeros and omni-mounts pointing them at my MLP. Not the most ascetic look but I wanted to listen to as many examples as I could before I concealed the wires. Just wasn't worth it. Maybe I didn't have them optimized or just the wrong speakers but the sizzle...

    Elac Debut 2.0 or Uni-Fi 2.0 bookshelf?

    My MLP is too close to the wall for rear surrounds. I'm happy with it.

    Elac Debut 2.0 or Uni-Fi 2.0 bookshelf?

    Extremely happy with the Uni-Fi 2.0s, along with the Elac DB52 surrounds. Just a much larger, richer presence and sound quality than the NHT SuperZeros. My room is 12' x 19' so similar volume. I'll usually go up to -5dB on movies and it's all I need. Played around with Atmos using 4 NHTs on the...

    Logitech bows out of the Harmony Universal Remote market

    So is the 950 the same remote as the Elite without the hub? I have a 665 but wonder if I should grab another now, and if so which one. I'm happy with the 665 so wonder if the 950/Elite would be worth the extra cost. BTW, I started with a Philips Pronto back in the early 2000s, and still have a...

    Interesting. I'll look into that.

    Elac Debut 2.0 or Uni-Fi 2.0 bookshelf?

    Got it. I'm not there yet. I have a umik-1 but very early in the learning curve. I'm using Audyssey to set delays and trims and limiting correction to ~300Hz for bass management. John which mini-dsp device are you using to apply correction?

    Elac Debut 2.0 or Uni-Fi 2.0 bookshelf?

    So do either of you use it for distance (delays) and trims? I realize the AVR is settings those, not Audyssey, but do you use Audyssey to determine those settings initially and then turn it off? Or leave it on and limit the correction to 200-300Hz and below?

    Home Theater upgrade Speakers

    I'll just throw this out there. Your BB sales rep lost all credibility with me for stating that Elac is "muddy and shit". What an asinine statement. Watch some reviews of the Elac Debut 2.0, Debut Reference and Uni-Fi 2.0 speakers, particularly Audiophiliac, New Record Day and cheapaudioman on...

    I called them and they were very accommodating, and were willing to do a phone sale and ship it to me. No telling whether they're still willing or able to do that.

    Understood. It was listed that way when I bought it as well.

    New to Home Theater - setup help

    Let's just say sometimes a phone call with Scott Genaw is "just like being there". Just sayin... With your room sizes and being that open, you'll likely end up wanting to go with dual subs. I'd start with one but plan on two... John's right, this is a hell of a deal on the SR7013. I almost...

    Well I'm glad you have some options and time to consider them. You'll see a lot of opinions on Klipsch speakers; lot of people love them and a lot hate them. That's for you to decide based on your tastes. I do agree with John that the Elac offers a great value. As you can see from my signature...

    New to Home Theater - setup help

    I have to agree with @JohnRice that you may be asking a question that you've already answered with your equipment. Will it sound better than the soundbar you have? I don't think there's any doubt that it will. Will you be happy with it? Depends on your expectations. Do you have any ability to...

    Elac Debut 2.0 or Uni-Fi 2.0 bookshelf?

    They're off to the side and slightly behind me now, but only a foot or so above ear level. The NHTs have a bracket mount that I had been using that put them near the ceiling but I thought they were too high based on everything I read. Take a look at my plan below and tell me whether they are too...

    Elac Debut 2.0 or Uni-Fi 2.0 bookshelf?

    The price difference doesn't bother me, but like you mention the difference for surrounds didn't seem to be important. The size of either will be a significant increase over the NHTs. I sit in an arm chair that has "wings" that are 40" high so I need to keep the tweeters above that. I need to...
