    Comparison Between Axiom M80ti and Revel Concerta F12

    While I agree that vast facilities can provide all a designer needs to make a great speaker, it doesn't insure a great speaker is made. Take General Motors for example. Vast facilities, huge testing grounds, and yet still turn out low priced crap. Their higher priced stuff may be top notch...

    Comparison Between Axiom M80ti and Revel Concerta F12

    Has anyone even heard the F12s? Every local Revel dealer I've called doesn't have any in stock. Curious as they look like a good value.

    Bi-wiring - That much difference?

    Bi-Wiring = Buy Wiring! Tried it once on my Dahlquist QX6 bookshelfs. With an HK-525 driving them, I noticed no difference with the 3 recordings I was attuned to. If you have an esoteric system that distinguishes very small changes, then maybe it's for you. For me, $100 would equal a new...

    HK-525 sound issues.

    I have an HK525 and noticed a similar problem. What I found was that my DVD player (a really, really, really, cheap one!) was decoding the dolby first, then the HK was feeding off of that. I went to the DVD setup options and changed the output stream to BITSTREAM. This sends the "raw"...

    DIY Amp Trigger?

    Thanks, The switched power outlet is more to my liking. I'm not dead set on DIY, I just didn't know switched power conditioners existed! Damn....the more I know, the more I realize how much I don't know. Off to shop for these things. thanks again, guy

    DIY Amp Trigger?

    Has anyone heard of a DIY amp trigger for an older amp that has no 12V trigger. My pre-pro has a 12V trigger output, but the amp does not. I'm thinking some sort of FET circuit spliced into the power cord. I'm not quite up to the point of diminishing returns whereby my power cord is the...

    amp with shallow depth

    If the back panel of the entertainment is luan plywood (or some other thin wood), it's very easy to cut out a hole that allows clearance for the equipment. A slightly bigger patch can be used to cover up if you move the equipment.

    cage match: Rotel RMB1075 vs. Parasound HCA1206

    Thanks, guys. Great feedback! Ernest: yeah. the 1075 vs 1205 would be a "fairer" comparison, but I have the opportunity right now in my life to get either the 1075 or 1206 at right around $700, both used. So that's the basis for my thread. I should've pointed that out earlier. Eric...

    cage match: Rotel RMB1075 vs. Parasound HCA1206

    Who comes out of the cage a winner? I know 1 has an extra channel. Is that enough to tip the scales? I can get both at similar prices, and have no opportunity to in-home audition them. Both have similar power and stats. I'll be using HK525 as pre-pro in a 6.1 movie setup. No multi-channel...

    New Dahlquist Lineup

    I have some QX6 speakers. Less than 1 year old. What have they changed on the QX6? I went to Dahlquist's website and it's not showing any new models. Thanks, guy

    Sherbourn 5/5210 specs?

    I'm shopping for a 5-channel amp for ~$1500. Looking at: Outlaw, Parasound & Sherbourn. Comparing specs along the way to help me make my decision. After numerous emails to Sherbourn, I still can not get a spec sheet out of them for the 5/5210. They also have not responded to my question...

    Sherbourn amp volume controls

    Mike, Have you got to the bottom of this problem? Curious if it's just a settings oversight or if it's amp realted. Thanks, Guy

    Sherbourn Diff btw 2/1500A and 2/5210?

    Can someone point out the differences between the older Sherbourn 2/1500A (5x200W) and newer 2/5210 (5x200w) amplifiers? I've poked around on and couldn't really come up with a difference list. Both have 5 independent channels internally but there must be some significant...

    Polk LSi9 as center

    Maybe Albert would buy 2 pairs of LSi9s and use one for a center and one for a 6th rear channel in a 6.1 setup? It'd be cheaper than 2 centers for the same purpose.

    Ear Fatigue??

    Bryan, My experience with Axiom is with the M22Ti. I ordered them based on all the great reviews, posts, etc... If I liked them a lot I was prepared to grab a whole 7.1 setup. Like you, I have an H/K 525. Out of the box, they were very harsh. I proceeded to break them in over a 5 day...

    30 Days to decide - Others??

    I like to base my decisions on the sounds of the mains first, then build the 5.1 setup around that. The comparisons you make should probably be with just the mains. M60 vs Paradigm Monitor 7 or 9 . the comparisons in an A/B fashion. Don't necessarily rely on your sonic memory...

    Speaker Stand Spikes - Top & Bottom

    So, in theory, a speaker suspended in mid-air might sound the best? I'm thinking of hanging my speakers by cables and maybe I'll hear things I've never heard before! Thanks for the input, Guy

    Speaker Stand Spikes - Top & Bottom

    What are the pros/cons of using spikes on speaker stands? Some stands have no spikes top or bottom (mostly cheaply priced ones). Some stands I see have spikes on the bottom plate and rubber pads on the top plate. Some stands have spikes on the top and bottom plate. What's the school of...
