Jump to new posts Thump thump ep600 by mastaplaya @ 02/09/16 03:30 PM

Any idea why an ep600 would randomly start making a thump thump noise when all sources are turned off to it but power is still turned on to it's amp? Really annoying at 3AM. It functions normally otherwise.

Fred, when it comes to other old men's opinions (60 this year, right?), you know I count yours among the highest. Same for Chris, but in the Middle-Aged category. That Chris really knows his stuff.

A crazy painter/musician told me this one time while we were picking up a light fixture in Dorchester; The Who is the greatest pure (sic) rock band. Led Zep and others leaned very bluesy.

Dan Hicks (Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks), at 74. I was such a fan of the 2 women singers, especially Naomi Ruth Eisenberg! I should Google her. Boy, we're not scoring here at all, at all.

You should reconsider. I hear that oboe players get a lot of action these days.

L-O-V-E Zep, have everything and still listen, but The Who blew our minds more regularly than did Led Zeppelin. The Who put on a better show (in the early 70's) than Zep. Townsend is a better writer than the Zep pair. Oddly, part of the great show

Oh, I know that they can customize it. I visited the Axiom shop in person almost exactly 1 year ago. GREAT experience. We talked about "un-skinned" on-wall M3s so that I could paint them to match the ceiling (I believe that this is a sta

Short answer, yes... I went to CEDIA 2014 where they formally announced Atmos and had several demos set up. I specifically asked about surround speakers, and was told several times, including right from Dolby reps, that monopole speakers are what A

You know, I've always been a Led Zep fan, but I think I'm going to put on some Who this afternoon. I feel like they might be better. I bet.

did you swap out the qs8s because they don't meet the Atmos specs? it seems I might have to do the same as you... read it here; http://hometheaterhifi.com/technical/tec...nd-the-reality/

No, I don't get too worried over who's better. Who's better is not something I argue about. Everybody will have his/her own opinion on who's better, and I respect that.

If you keep your second row you may have to raise it up a bit. At 18" off the floor your eyes should be at just under the midpoint of the screen while seated in the first row. Do you like the smaller screen size? Might take a movie to get us

I should also mention that I have not yet leveled the side speakers, and the acoustical panel will be moved at a later date when I add 2 more panels to the room. The current 3 panels on each side will end up being centered under each of the 3 wall sc

All speakers are in place and the screen has been lowered. The image is 90" diagonal and 18 inches off the floor, pretty low. Once the seats are back in I might need to raise it back up.

I'm using the same stuff but just the single pair version. Good wire. It is amazing how much time and effort was and will be spent to just move the wires about 16 inches tops. For the record, I soldered and added heat shrink to each connection f

Thanks JBG for the tips. I won't be going with in-ceiling speakers mainly because my room is sound isolated (new term for soundproofed). I have 2 layers of 5/8" drywall, attached to hat channel, isolation clips, and then to the ceiling joists.

Nice work there, when installing my atmos in-ceiling I ran into 2 issues.. perhaps this might help out if you plan to buy the axiom's atmos speakers 1st I have 1/2 inch drywall and when fixing the speaker in place the little legs don't quite make it
