    I'm at crossroads.. All in one or separate ?

    Hi Yes I've noticed ASR is more near field speakers oriented, but it is no surprise considering the difficulty it is for Amir to receive and test some big-heavy-expensive speakers... I will indeed listen to the DP107 in situ as soon as possible. I'm eager to. At my first listening session, in a...

    I'm at crossroads.. All in one or separate ?

    Hi guys Thx for your replies. I've rethought the project a little bit. The fact is, I don't want this living room to be a HT room ; as I said, i'm lucky enough to be able to go to theaters. Nothing compares to the real stuff imo. It will be first and foremost a "music" room with some AV...

    Indeed :D:p Don't worry, the screen isn't rigid. At worse you can crawl on the floor to the fridge! More seriously, i didn't like the idea of a floating screen casing above your head when entering the room. Update of the CG images with DP 107 modeled + night view

    Denon X4700H Pre-Amp Mode not working

    Hi, I'm not sure I understand clearly... Do you think I can use the Denon as a pure preamp if I only output the main speakers (front and right) and connect it to an ext. amp? I just need a 2.0 (or 2.2) setup...

    Thanx a lot. The M1s look quite nice even on paper, but a bit more expensive (6.900€!) than the Diptyques and you have to buy a nice stand for it that probably doesn't come cheap... Unfortunately, there's absolutely no place near me for having a demo. Too bad for now. 8C Studios look good too...

    I see what you mean. The fact is, I was surprised to like the sound of these panels, because i had absolutely no expectations. I shouldn't have say "box", but maybe "directive"? The Audio Shrine is perfect until you want to add some videos features.... Then you begin to make compromises...

    :D:D:D:D Ahem...Not at all... Boxem is a luxemburgish brand and Topping is a chinese one :p. Regarding the expensive speakers, it's totally true that i have no measurement. Nichts. Nada. But I heard them; yes, hours of ASR reading have taught me not to trust my brain, but I pick them after a...

    You're right, but there's also something important, as you have those speakers all day long right under your nose : the design. The objective fades into the subjective world.... I ruled out the PMC twenty5.24i (too expensive) and the Q acoustics 500 (both in white). I've listened to several...

    To be honest, I don't need multi channels, as it's mostly for music. Maybe I will add surround speakers in the future, but I have to stay in budget and wanted to focus on the quality of the two main speakers.

    @charleski Thx. Yes I guess the matching will be the most difficult part

    Hi, Funny you think of the m33, it was the first amp on my mind. But I ruled it out because of the budget!!!! it's 5.500€. Dead. And I would have to add a usb DAC and a HDMI switch (I just read their optional modules aren't even compatible when you want both... what a mess:facepalm:)

    I'm at crossroads.. All in one or separate ?

    Hi, Yes! The Diptyques' manufacturer said the same : "fast" subs. But what is a "fast" sub ? :D I've read that the amp's power should be around 1,5x the handling power of the speaker. Do everyone agree with that? But yeah, I could start with the MRX740 for example. So, both have the same...

    Hi to all, Like many of you, probably, I've been wandering through ASR for quite a time without posting, being no engineer nor pure audiophile. Hours and hours of reading :p, and now i need your advice ! But first of all, I would like to thank all the people around, Amir being the first...
