As I posted in a previous post on Jan 25, I ordered a set of M22s in custom charcoal. I know custom takes a bit longer and when ordering it says "ships in 10 days". I received my confirmation email that said I would receive a email with a t

I thought of SRV (no surprise there!) but thought he was too "blues" for the rock dead rock band everyone was planning.

The combined ideologies seem to work the best. The calibration mic running a full cycle then, manually tuning did the trick. Thanks, Axiom Nation.

Jeeeezz!! gotta set you guys straight (err, excluding Bob). Ronnie Van Zant vocals, SRV lead guitar (how could we forget him?), John Entwistle bass and hmm...John Bonham on drums, although I'd like to see what Gene Krupa would do with that line-up.

Most people use either a tape measure for distance and then adjust the center channel up or down as they need, or auto-setup/calibration from their receiver/processor such as Audyssey to get things tuned in pretty close. Whether I am using my curren

Sgt., that is the one thing that we here all know, but that our spouses/significant others can never find out. An Audyssey, or some other surround set-up system helps, but there still remains just that one spot. Shhh!

Wow, my little thread has at least two of you "50-somethings" starting to get jittery. Funny how differently we each measure our own successes.

Yes, my receiver allows various settings such as volume, distance, etc. So far, it's been trial and error. However, the results have been good. It is tough to have the sweet spot more than any one given place.

Settings such as the blending point to compliment my mains. My receiver allows me to adjust the center channel. Gotta love the Canadian sense of humor. Lol.

I just came across someone who people are claiming can give a really good deal on a new MRX-1120. Probably still too rich for my blood, but I am tempted to ask... Authorized reseller who is active on some Facebook groups.

Can't say I ever heard a John Paul Jones bass line that really moved me the way Entwistle and Geddy do. Of course, neither JPJ nor Geddy are DEAD YET, so I'll try to stay within the parameters set forth in the original post. Ahem. Give me the who

Every time I see a short, name-only, rock-star internet headline (like a highlighted link on FB) I get nervous. Today, I saw "Sammy Hagar" and thought, "oh no!". But it was just more recycled crap about speculation on a Van Haga

Right, ARC is one of the main reasons I wanted to hear their product. So many people talk about the loss of Audyssey with some of the current generation receivers and processors, and while some companies have improved their own room analysis a bit (

Both are really nice and have been a popular choice for the people at AVS who participate in the Atmos topic. I am still hoping that the next round will yield a full 11.1 amplified system (no need for an external amp) that does Atmos and gen2 DTS:X

Preaching to the choir... Go back and find my posts here about Atmos. I actually know more about it than most, even though I don't have it installed yet. Ha! With that said, I will say this. With a 7.1 system (there is no such thing as a 7.2, 7.
