    Pathos Classic One with Kef Q35.2 worth it?

    Hi folks, I have a pair of Kef Q35.2s which are hooked to a NAD C320bee. I have been happily using this very subtle and old setup for almost a decade. Now a colleague of mine is selling his Pathos Classic One for a good price (but still pretty expensive compared to my system components) and I...

    Getting loud hum from turntable. How to eliminate?

    Hi. I have been using a Pro-ject Debut II tt and was hooking it to my Denon receiver with no problems. However, I decided to replace the tt with my old Rotel rp5300. Hooked it to the NAD stereo amp through a phono stage, and I am getting loud humming out of it now. The ground wire does not help...

    Hi all. I have been using my HT setup since about 4 years and it stayed as an entry level setup as was... Only last evening I bought a NAD c320bee thinking it would improve my 2 ch listening, but right after buying it I realised that if I added that to my system through the receiver preouts, I...

    Can you name this French movie?

    Two guys, one of them is divorced and sad, the other is younger. They live in a small coastal village and all they dream for is to open a cafe on the beach. The young actor's name was Vincent IIRC. In the end they open the place and I remember they paint the wooden chairs they'd collected in...

    Optical cables - how to treat them?

    Well I've just bought an optical cable to hook my CD player along its good ol' analog connection so that I'll compare the sound. My receiver is in a closet and I had a hard time to fit the cable to the receiver trying to locate the place of the input jack by the help of a mirror and a torchlight...

    Dog ate the cable. Is it safe to attach the wire?

    Hi. I am running 40' 14 gauge wire from my receiver to my rears. The speakers are 6ohm, my fronts and center are 8 ohm speakers and the receiver is 8 ohm as well. Last night the dog ate one of the cables going to a rear and I reconnected the wire using some tape. (It was my fault though, I left...

    How to clean CD changers?

    I have a Kenwood 200 disc changer which gets too much dust inside. When I replace discs, I see that the discs themselves are getting too much dust too. Is there a way to clean these changers? Will the lens cleaning brush CDs work ? Ty.

    Polyfil blocking the port of speaker(almost)..

    I was trying to vaccum the dust inside the ports of my speakers (Kef Q35.2s) and for a moment I was distracted by the ringing phone and for a brief moment the hose got in totally, properly inside the port... I was curious if it moved the stuffing inside, so I looked through the port with a torch...

    Hissing and buzzing on center channel with DTS signal

    Hi. When the input mode is set to auto on my Denon 1802, the center channel produces a loud buzzing constantly when DTS material is played. I checked with the S&V HT tune up DTS test tones and same thing happens only on the center channel. If I set the input mode as DTS the sound is clean. Is...

    Can you identify this movie with too little info

    It was a war film, end of 80's or early 90's. Only scene I can remember is a group of soldiers were raping a couple of old local women in the field, and the scene was quite disturbing, my friend wanted to walk out and we did so.

    NAD C320 BEE or Marantz PM8000-Opinions?

    I have been searching an integrated stereo amp for 2 channel listening. I narrowed my choices down to these two and need some input for deciding. NAD is awesome, but I never had the chance to listen to it in my setup, or with same speakers that I own, and I didn't hear the Marantz. Nad is 50W...

    Any risk to speakers when the source sends bad signals?

    Sometimes in the middle of a movie suddenly my DVD player spoils the picture and the sound for several seconds. It seems it's not the discs themselves, at least most of the time cause when I play the discs on my computer this generally doesn't happen. Sometimes it's the disc though. It's not...

    Movies that make you feel happy

    There are movies that make me feel good. Not like watching a good horror movie and find it great thus feeling good, but are there movies which you think add something to you, emotionally. Flawless, for example is one of my favourites in that respect. I always feel happy after watching that film...

    Question regarding Operation Time data in service menu

    Hi. Some of you will remember from my previous thread, i'm having some problems with my Loewe Calida. Instead of resurrecting that quite long thread, I thought it's better to seek help in another one as the information I'm looking for is rather independent of what I've been experiencing...

    Where did these black stains come from?

    Hi. I have a 32" direct view Loewe which I am very happy with. Last night I spotted black stains on top of the screen and they weren't there before, I am 100% sure. First I thought they were on the glass and would come off so I started to wipe the screen but it is like they are inside the...

    A question regarding power and SPL

    Last night I put my RS SPL in front of one of my front speakers, 1 mt away. It is a floorstander, 91db, 8 ohms. I turned the volume on my Denon 1802 to read -18, which is almost half the way (Denon's volume scale is from -60 to +18) and the meter read 84db. I know there's the input level and...

    Avr 1802 made in Korea. Where was yours made in?

    I bought a 1802 yesterday to replace my kenwood vr505. Reviews I have been reading here was the main factor of why I chose the denon1802. I haven't been able to listen to it since it took almost 4 hours to unhook the kenwood, reorganizeing the cable jungle and terminating the cables and hooking...

    Yet another praise to Sony sa-wm40 mods

    I finished my modifications last nite and since then watched several bass heavy scenes from different movies and listened to my favourite CDs. The difference is night and day, even to a person who isn't an audiophile, i.e., me. I stuffed the sub with about 15oz. of polyfil taken from a pillow...

    Calibration question

    Hi. I have calibrated my system using S&V disc and Radioshack SPL meter several times since I change the positioning of the speakers quiet a lot. After adding a sub, I saw that the S&V disc's subwoofer level tone, which plays in turn with the left front, makes the left front woofer pop. I mean...
