In Topic: home theater equipment upgrade

06 July 2017 - 10:25 AM

Well It's all picked and purchased setup kinda etc.Got a different receiver than originally going to get.

Got the 4k oled from LG c7p

yamaha rx-a870

a pair of klipsch rp-250s surrounds

a klipsh 450c center

sony ubd-x800 uhd 4k bluray

Playstation 4 pro

350 foot speaker wire

moved the 4 quintet satellites as the rear/front  presence channels.May/may not upgrade those in near future.Ran enough wire around room to make a Faraday cage.All new high speed hdmi cables.And I love the sound and picture  now, dialogue great  no problem and the surrounds are wicked.Still playing with the receiver set up stuff levels distance etc.Purchased the pacific rim 4k movie it looked and sounded  simply fantastic. And system is still not optimized as well as it could be..

why do you want 4 surrounds?Wifey wants them. Cant hear the dialogue or the surrounds very well.So I have to crank them then the 26's take over.

The recievers now can send a signal to rears in some sort of dolby dsp atmos malarky .

Room is pretty small I know.Shouldn't have cut it in half to put a bedroom on bottom floor..

Already have a yamaha rx-v665 hooked up to the r-26's plus a set of Klipsch quintets, center an 4 surrounds the center and surrounds are over shadowed by the 26's.no matter how I set the levels.Really like the 26's also.

I'm not completely sold on the 250s seems as though the front speaker of them would be aimed at the  middle of room unless i moved whole thing back a little.But then it would be bouncing off rear wall.Odd design for sure.Which may or may not be good with rears.Listened to some Definitive Technology's satellite and center channel today and they sounded sweet.may work better for the size of the room..been looking for this stuff for about a week or two it's making me nuts.

We are both going to audition them tomorrow so she can see and hear them all, then she can pick..Wish me luck.

Is the 9500 out yet.

THX for the replies.

Hmmm. I'd Just use my fluke multimeter to check for amperage draw when the machine is finally purchased and built if I needed.Wouldn't have to borrow someones meter.Thx.
