    Synyrgy Cynyma II ( Pronounced: Lynyrd Skynyrd Too)

    Quick Status Update While I’ve moved the majority of 2ch gear and accessories over to the new place along with my entire music collection, I have yet to tear down and move the HT gear and movies. We are still waiting for our yard to be sodded and fenced before I can move in. There are many...

    On another note: We’ve closed on the house and are slowly moving in. I’m staying behind with our pack of dogs until the sod gets laid and fence put up. My current theater will be the last room moved and I’ll then need to start populating and tuning the new room.

    @thrillcat made a wise move away from the XMC-2 for his circumstances. I needed to take advantage of the low entry fee into 4K/UHD and the latest Dirac. Details of my XMC-2’s major issue can be found in Post #20 in this thread. I’ll contact Emotiva for warranty service and push for a...

    Anthem AVM60 7.1.4 Preamp/Processor

    Start Edit: Your review was one of the better Ive come across! It really drew me into the experience of owning one, and also made me want to own one. You must be very content with your choice! End Edit You also mentioned the XMC-1’s quirks elsewhere. I brushed your comments aside before...

    I was also shocked to see that title bestowed not only on him, but also on several other esteemed former members. HTS and AV NIRVANA must have an agreement which forbids admins who left HTS for AV NIRVANA from posting there anymore. I got my XMC-2 through private invitation—the only way to get one right...

    You’ve done this before, haven’t you! Over my head, but still enjoy following along.

    The aforementioned impressions were made while listening to both multichannel and stereo sources encoded using Dirac Live LE. I’ve since taken advantage of Emotiva’s trade in program and acquired an XMC-2. After brushing up on REW, I decided to revisit multichannel audio over HDMI and got it...

    Synyrgy Cynyma II ( Pronounced: Lynyrd Skynyrd Too)

    Yup, you know it! Movies were immediately impressive, even with a really rough speaker setup and room tune. But music isn’t pushing the right buttons yet. Okay, but no laughing. Two dual-15s driven by a 4kW amp shoehorned into the front corners of my old 9x13 room may seem ludicrous, but I’m...

    It’s great! Oppo has their discontinued models set up online. You can Google something like “Oppo player support” and get there as well, but expect to navigate a while. After reviewing your repair request, Oppo contacts you via email with instructions either to return the unit, or to set up a...

    My builder got a lot more right than they did wrong, but that didn’t ease the stress and complexity of the transaction. All “defects” have supposedly been fixed, but we need to tie loose ends on the financial side now. I knew the house was a stretch when we started. The mortgage bankers just...
