    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.

    Basic question regarding region codes on DVDs.

    On the item description page it says, "BRAND NEW AUTHENTIC DVD, Duration: Approximately 200 minutes (over 3 hours)" He responded in another email I sent him by stating, "The packaging does indicate that it is playable in all R1, R2, R3, R4, R5 and R6 players. I hope this helps." I sent him...

    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...

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

    Thanks for the update Greg. I was in BestBuy Thursday and got my $10.75 back :) So far I really like my AS-C1. It drastically improves my surround experience vs. the 4.1 setup I had before.

    why is Carlito's Way OOP?

    Damn, you're right. I just checked and it's still out of stock. Mighty fine movie for it to already be out of stock. Anybody know if a newer, better version is coming out w/in the next year?

    What better? Aim center: directly at head height? slightly below? slightly above?

    I just got a new center channel and I am curious as to how you guys' prefer your center channel? Do you think it is best to aim it directly at ear-level @ the primary listening position? Or slightly above ear level? How about slightly below? As of now, I have mine almost straight at ear-level.

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

    Greg, be sure to post your initial impressions of it after some viewing. People out there that own the AS-C1 already, does the sound get better after it has had time to fully break-in? About 100 hours or so?

    Better subwoofer? Energy XL-S8 XL S8 100 watt or Onkyo HTS-650 HTiB sub (150 watt)??

    Yeah Matt, I think I am just going to wait until I save up enough cash to get a really nice sub. I just don't see the Energy being a significant upgrade over my Onkyo. Thanks anyways :b

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

    Well I got one today. I've got it up and running now. So far, it's much better than that piece of trash Onkyo I had on top of my TV before. I'm trying to break it in now, just running some music out of my front 3 speakers. I got it for $122 + tax. It was marked at $152-$30 instant rebate = $122...

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

    ^^^So you don't forsee the newer AS-C1 sounding any different or better than the current AS-C1?

    Better subwoofer? Energy XL-S8 XL S8 100 watt or Onkyo HTS-650 HTiB sub (150 watt)??

    And to make things even worse, I think my Onkyo receiver still has the LFE bug I sent in to get fixed 1.5 years ago :angry:

    Better subwoofer? Energy XL-S8 XL S8 100 watt or Onkyo HTS-650 HTiB sub (150 watt)??

    I am currently using a subwoofer from an Onkyo HTS-650 home theater system. It is an 8-inch, 150 watt sub. Would a Energy XL-S8 XL S8 100 watt be an improvement over my current Onkyo? And if so, how much? My room dimensions are 20 feet x 20 feet. The room is a square, with 4 complete walls.

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

    Yeah, I was doing some research myself and read that eye protection must be worn b/c of how strong they are. Do you guys' think this will lead to a better sounding AS-C1?

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

    I was at BestBuy today and they are selling the AS-C1 for $122 after instant rebate! Should I get this and be satisfied, or wait until the new version comes out with Neodymium? What exactly is Neodymium? How much better will it make the speaker sound?

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

    Yeah, but that link said that the AS-F2s are only getting some cosmetic changes. They are not getting any change in sound/technology. So if the new AS-F2s are the same, I'm going to imagine the new AS-C1 would match-up perfectly. I hope that makes sense.

    The Right SVS Sub for Me?

    Because I'm still using an Onkyo subwoofer I got with my initial HTiB. I was just curious if you are looking to sell it; and if so, for how much?
