    Denon AVP A1HD power supply ?

    Im considering the Denon AVP A1HD as a pre. For some reason Denon thinks all europeans want their equipment in silver, which really wouldnt match the rest of my equipment, so its not an option for me. Does anybody know is the US or Canadian version og AVP A1HD is able to accept 220v/50hz...

    Got my Svs Ultra, have question about setup with 2 subs

    Actually i dont want to use 2 subs to get more bass, but to even it out thought out the room more. When I meassure the svs alone there are some drops at some listening positions at different hz, probably because of my room, furniture ect. One listening position meassures 75 db on 70 hz, and...

    Got my Svs Ultra, have question about setup with 2 subs

    Tried and run the testsignal again. I get these numbers, on the same sound level. I ran them 3 timers: The PB13 Ultra alone / The Svs and servo together: 20 hz - 75 db / 75 db 30 hz - 77,1 db / 76 db 40 hz - 62,5 db / 62,2 50 hz - 62,6 db / 73,4 60 hz - 72 db / 82,2 70 hz - 66,3 db...

    Got my Svs Ultra, have question about setup with 2 subs

    They are on each side of the screen but placed somewhat assymetric. They are both in fase with each other and with the front/center speakers, so basically there is no problem. No decrease of bass at any hz. I find it very hard to hear any difference using just the svs or both...more bass...

    Got my Svs Ultra, have question about setup with 2 subs

    Thanks. Im experimenting with it right now. I tested from 20 hz up to 80 hz and I get an db increase at every stage (every 10 db), so there is more bass using 2 all over. But maybe I should just go with the svs and then turn it up if I want more bass, or maybe add another svs later. That...

    Got my Svs Ultra, have question about setup with 2 subs

    The Svs PB ultra13 finally arrived at my home yesterday. Now im trying to get it to work with my paradigm servo 15. When calibrating the speakers are set to 75 db om a test signal, and using one sub the output is around 80. Ok, using 2 subs now should give me a 6 db increase. So what do I do...

    PCM question

    Of course you need a player that is able to decode the formats and send as PCM, and a player that actually has the analog connections.
  11. Michael Eriksen

    PCM question

    Toslink will only have room for 2 channels of pcm. So if you want to send more than 2 channels pcm from the player use either the hmdi cable or the analog out.

    Signal degradation in receivers video treatment ?

    When feeding a receiver with a HD signal from a blu ray player does it matter what video chip the receiver has, or is that only used for upscaling non 1080p source material? Does the realta chip for exsample in any way effect a 1080p signal. I would prefer the receiver just being transperent...

    XLR combined with RCA?

    Probably right, but the marantz have 1 xlr sw output and 1 rca sw output, so I could use both without having to use a splitter. :-)

    XLR combined with RCA?

    I currently use the sunfire grand cinema as an amplifier and a denon as a pre. They are connected with rca cables. Thinking about buying the new Marantz AV8003 as a pre and connecting the speaker channels via the balanced XLR connections. One of my subwoofers dosens have a XLR input...

    Do we need HD decoders in amplifiers ?

    With the upcoming blu ray players like the pana BD50, that is able to decode all HD sound formats and send them as PCM to the receiver or pre amp, is there any advantage in having af pre amp that can decode the HD sound formats ? As long as its able to receive a 7.1 PCM signal via hmdi and...

    Howard The Duck On DVD?? Please

    I want it. I actually liked it a lot. It contains one of my favorite quotes from Jennings when he sits in the café and explain to Howard how he wants to take over the world and the waitress takes his plate, and he says "She took my eggs". Classic.

    Lord of the Rings extended DVD

    Can it be that there is no subtitles on the extended version, but english subtitles on the normal version ? I would gladly exchange one of the commentary tracks for some subtitles. This annoys me. Michael Eriksen
