    What kind of amp does everybody have?

    I just received my new ATI 3007 last week and though it's not fully broken in yet it defintely bests the Cinepro 2K6 I had. It's fully differential from input to output and my soundstage and lower end have never been better. I can't wait to this baby is fully broken in. Mike

    In ceiling speakers

    Calvin, I have the same situation but my kitchen is behind the listening position. I did not want to put in-ceiling speakers in because if I ever moved I wanted to take the rears with me and not have a lot of patching to do. So, I bought the JMLab Sibs and hung them from the ceiling behind the...

    Thiel Power Points

    Stephen, I guess the Omnistats sounded tinny and weak. Maybe it was the room or setup but I was not really impressed. I guess I'll have to listen to the Sibs and go back and listen to the Omnistats again just to be sure. My only problem is deciding if the PowerPoints will be worth the extra...

    Thiel Power Points

    Stephen, Somewhat in between in price would be the JMLabs Sibs. These are the others I'm considering if they really do hang on the ceiling. I need to go back to my dealer to listen and make sure they can be hung from the ceiling so this is another option. I did not like the OmniStats at all...

    Thiel Power Points

    Stephen, I have not had the PowerPoints in my system but I have heard them and they are pretty awesome. But you're right they are very expensive in my opinion. I would love to have 2 to hang on the ceiling for my rear speakers but I'm looking for something a little cheaper and who knows maybe a...

    Looking for a good 7 channel amp to use with my h/k 525

    Todd, I've also been looking at 7 channel amps in the $3000 range and have come up with the Sherbourn 7/2100, the Adcom GFA-7807 and the ATI 2007. Any of these amps would be great and I haven't sold my current amp yet, but I will be making a decision on one of these within the next couple of...

    Sherbourn 7/2100 vs. ATI 2007 vs. Adcom GFA-7807 amps

    Thanks guys for the replies. I know there were a lot of Sherbourn users out there. Charles and Allan: Are you using the balanced connections between the AVM20 and the Sherbourn or the RCA connections? Did you have trouble hooking the cables up as the inputs are on the bottom of the amp...

    ADCOM Power Amp

    George, Thanks for clarifying the 2 cord issue. Having choices is not all that great in some cases. I don't think I could go wrong buying any of these amps but it does not make the final choice any easier. The Sherbourn is the cheapest and I do like the monoblock design and the 2 power cords...

    Sherbourn 7/2100 vs. ATI 2007 vs. Adcom GFA-7807 amps

    Allen, Thanks for the info. The Sherbourn amps are the only ones I have had a chance to have in my previous system, the mono blocks, and was just curious how cool and quiet the new amps ran. Anyone else care to comment, and yes Iam reading the Adcom amp thread. Mike

    ADCOM Power Amp

    George, I just downloaded the GFA-7807 manual and it does not show 2 power cords. The only amp I have seen with 2 power cords is the Sherbourn. Are you sure about what amp your friend has? And your right about it being a heavy monster, almost 120 pounds. Mike

    Sherbourn 7/2100 vs. ATI 2007 vs. Adcom GFA-7807 amps

    Hello all, I'm in the process of simplifying my system for my wife so I'm getting rid of my 2 and 6 channel amps and buying a 7 channel amp, now that there are some good ones out there. The Sherbourn 7/2100 has been at the top of my list for awhile but looking around today I found the ATI...

    ADCOM Power Amp

    I was wondering if anyone has the newer seven channel amp, the GFA 7807? I'm in the process of simplifyng my system for my wife and I'm going from a two-chanel and five-channel amp to a seven channel amp. The Adcom fits the budget and the qualifications. What I want to know is does the amp run...

    Cinepro amps

    Mike, I also have Cinepro amps in my system. I am selling them to simplifiy my system for my wife though, and I will miss them dearly. I have the 2K6III for sale, if interested PM me.

    The Upgraded Anthem AVM-20 2.1

    Jason, I also have the Yamaha S2300 DVD player and have noticed clicks and pops with the new version 2.12 that I did not have with version 2.10. I was going to revert back but I will now contact Nick and have him send me the update he sent you. Thanks for posting here as I thought I was one of...

    driving the divas

    Dan, I have the Diva's, 6.1, C3 and R3's but I don't have the Sherbourn amp. Right now I have a Cinepro 1KSE driving the 6.1's and a 2K6III running the center and surounds. For the money I don't think I could do much better and I enjoy listening everyday. I have been thinking very seriously...

    The Upgraded Anthem AVM-20 2.1

    I also have the PB2+ in a room that's 15x30x10 and has several other small openings and the sub is more than enough to give me all I want a more. I use to have a pair of CS 20-39's and the PB2+ matches it plus some. I will never own another sub unless I buy a second PB2+;) ;) ;) And since...

    The Upgraded Anthem AVM-20 2.0 Thread

    I'm glad to see the Anthem thread is still alive and strong. I was without my Anthem for 5 weeks while it was sent back for a fix of my DSP board. Fortunately, I was out on vacation for 3 of those weeks, but the week without it when I got back was almost unbearable. No movies, no music, my amps...

    PB2 Ultra in the house!

    I would second, or third the T-shirt idea. Especially for those of us who are already SVS owners and are buying again. I saw a guy with an SVS T-shirt on at my local HT dealer and wondered why I've never gotten one. Fo they sell T-shirst on their website? I guess I'll have to check it out. And...

    The Upgraded Anthem AVM-20 2.0 Thread

    Michael, Thanks for you thoughts. Are you saying to set the sub to a higher crossover or all the other speakers to a higher crossover? My subs right now are in the same corner behind my front left speaker and I don't have any localization as far as I can tell. Mike

    The Upgraded Anthem AVM-20 2.0 Thread

    Hello fellow Anthem owners, I always follow this thread as an owner but do not chime in much as Michael M. has things pretty much under control:D I was reading a few of the comments on bass control. Maybe someone can give me some advice. I have dual SV 20-39 CS's with the Samson amp. Iam using...

    The Upgraded Anthem AVM-20 2.0 Thread

    Alan, I agree with Mark and Chas. I prefer the Analogue-DSP mode. I have a Yamaha S2300 DVD Audio/SACD player. I used to have the Sony 555ES SACD player and the Yamaha is actually quite good in my opinion on both DVD Audio and SACD discs. Regular CD playback in also very good. I do run all...

    Anthem AVM-20 2.0 vs Aragon Stage One Please help me compare the two.

    Adam, Just my $.02. This past summer I was going through the same buying process you are going through now. I bought the Anthem for the following reasons: 1. Balanced connections 2. Zone 2 and 3 outputs 3. Local Dealer who gave me a good deal 4. Ability to do software upgrades at home...

    Where to buy balanced XLR cables in Toronto area?

    Wayne, One other suggestion is to look at markertek.com. I bought some XLR cables to go from my Anthem AVM20 to my Cinepro amps and these fit inot my price range nicely and they are very good as far as I can tell. Yo can also order them in different colors but be sure to call in your order if...

    New JMLab Sib speakers

    Brandon, Thanks for responding to my questions regarding the Sibs. My only other concern would be that my amp is rated at 250Wpc into 8ohms and I think JMLabs recommends an amp no grater than 75 Wpc. I don't know if this would be a problem or not during movies with lots of bass and action in...

    New JMLab Sib speakers

    Jason, Thanks for that information. That sounds very reasonable even if they were $350 each. Now if I can just find out if they can be mounted on the ceiling:frowning: Mike
