When I used Onkyo it was a DTS setting for 2channel width on my current Anthem it's also a DTSX setting. Used to fill in a wider stereo image. When playing stereo modes. I set my 160 to 40 or 60Hz. and it has a wonderful bold deep male dialog. Hav

My suggestion is to listen to as many different speakers as you can and see what it is that you feel may be missing. Ian and Andrew have made changes to refine the speakers but in the end it comes down to you and your room, different is not always be

To run a phantom center, turn off the center channel in the AVR settings and then the main speakers will image the center channel,referred to as phantom center.

I would think you should be ok with the 3050. I'd like a 3050 some day... My 1010 and ADA are still treating me good though.

I'm looking to purchase a new stereo receiver (with hdmi and network capabilities) to power my M22 v2 speakers (still going strong after 9 years!). I can only find two products that offer the features I will need: (1) the Onkyo tx-8270 and (2) the Pi

Have you tried playing with your center image from the mains? Forget what it's called, though it's a phantom center setting on all AVRs. Another thing may be the polarity check your wires are in correct orientation, red black match up. You can also

Being your Anthem has true balanced outputs, you have nice XLRs hanging around. . I would go for it. Not only could you fill your awesome room with reference levels no worry. You'd finally have the piece of mind knowing you'd have to spend a whole

Sure hope itís not my ears. Could be though. I have 9.1 set up. Two height speakers. I have my center set to Large cause my sub is weak. Would that possibly drown out some of the dialog?

I found your equipment list in your other thread and with a vp 160 you should have no problems with dialogue. Perhaps a hearing test is in order, i had mine done turns out my ears are shot. Does your receiver do atmos, i understand atmos gives you mo

I should have said that I'm using the trade up program, and the VP 150 WILL be replaced by the 180 (m80s V2 to m100s, qs8 V2 to V4). I actually like the m80s, but seems the new V4 version of all speakers gets much love from those that have upgraded

I have a similar setup/configuration, but with different subs. What is it about the M80's that has you looking to go M100? I am looking to upgrade the centre channel, as most information seems to be aimed for the CC to reproduce.

Good day, all: Just wondering if there is any opinion or experience in using the M100s in a 5.1.4 config? I'm in the process of upgrading from my M80, VP150 and QS8 V2 to the V4's, but decided to go with the M100s vs the M80s? Also using a PSA3000

I have the LFRs and run them with one ADA 1500. It sounds glorious, and I wouldn't think about using a lower power amp. However, I do like my music and movies loud. If you don't, then there is probably no reason to change anything! However, given al

But that is the problem. I don't know or don't think that I am getting any major distortion from my current setup. That doesn't mean it is simply not there, but without being able to do a real A/B comparison, then it sure is hard to know if you are
