The immersive titles are not premium priced. Just bought John Wick. Same price as any other new release bluray (which is still pricey I guess.). I just hope it doesnt take 2-3 years for the formats to trickle up to non mainstream AVRs. Higher end

I am more curious on the distribution side to see how it is adopted. The nail in the coffin will be if they try to ultra premium it on the movie side and charge outragous prices for the films with it. Like the premium paid for a 3d film, or worse,

I remember when huntsville became a "city".. they got their first traffic light. Wow, those were the good old days.

Deerhurst should have something going on, can be expensive though.

I cannot thank you all enough. Placing the driver parallel with the wall and having it fire into the corner of the room was the sweat spot. THX again... now if I can figure a way to keep the pictures from falling of the walls:)

NICK! Have a great time! Matt, research used by Axiom and others has established that "most people" prefer speakers that have a relatively neutral (flat) frequency response. AND I'm definitely not a scientist. Graphs are boring, I'm in

I was going to put my sub (EP175 at the time), front and center under the TV. Seems logical. But after doing the sub crawl, the best location ended up being near either the left or right side wall, about 4 feet back. Since then, I've placed an EP350

I'm not sure if this is comb filtering, but I ran a test once with the on-wall M22 (mounted on the wall) vs the Bookshelf M22 (mounted on the stands designed for them). I had a sound abnormality with the on-wall, but not with the bookshelf. I played

Thank you guys. I like that crawl method. Never even thought of that! I have already checked all the settings and phase. But I kept getting tired of moving the EP500 around, so the crawl method looks like the way to go.

Yes. The tweaking included turning it off. But that makes it sound even worse. Here are the models used: 1st Pioneer VSX-21THX (2009) Denon AVR-3312CI (2011) 2nd Pioneer SC-67 (2013)

Blatsi- First, make sure that your settings are correct on your receiver for Bass Management and on the subwoofer itself...i.e., the crossover filter isn't engaging. As far as placement goes, try the Subwoofer Crawl. Something is wrong somewhere; t

And I thought that speakers were more of a subjective thing, much like music itself. You find what you like and though it may be different from everyone else, it's right for you.

I am heading to Axiom tomorrow and I will look for those combs and filters and make sure that they are behaving. Hopefully we don't get much snow. I hear that the drive from Toronto is long enough on clear roads.
