    HDMI and DACs not evolving

    Agreed. If this tiny company could afford the licensing all we're asking is for them or someone else to do the same thing that's done by this product, except with more DAC channels and perhaps better overall SINAD performance.

    Revel C208 or C205 for my specific room size.. Help!

    Actually planning on buying a pair of both the M105 and M106 and using one of the two as desktop speakers. I’ll decide which later.

    Revel C208 or C205 for my specific room size.. Help!

    You’re giving me anxiety. I’m about to buy two IKEA Poang’s for this room as a temporary solution until I scrape together however many thousands my wife deems necessary for a sofa. I’ll be summarily executed if the Poangs stay. Pray for me, ASR.

    Revel C208 or C205 for my specific room size.. Help!

    Going with the C208 represents mostly aesthetic issues.. I'd need to get the matching stand, and then with that dominating the front center of the room I'd need to come up with a stand/rack solution that fit either all in the front left corner of the room behind the front left F206, or two...

    Revel C208 or C205 for my specific room size.. Help!

    Any insight on whether crossing the F206's over lower (60hz?) would assist the C205 in producing a credibly authoritative front soundstage. I've owned this RZ50 for months but it's never been out of the box, so I don't actually know what kind of job Dirac does at blending various crossover...

    Revel C208 or C205 for my specific room size.. Help!

    Great point abt the F206 and C205 sharing identical mid/tweeter combos. I didn’t think about that, just assumed that Revel would’ve done an excellent job matching the timbre of the Performa series top to bottom. The whole series share the same driver materials, crossover components, cabinet...

    Revel C208 or C205 for my specific room size.. Help!

    I'm honestly far less worried about the dispersion, given that the room is only 14.5" wide, my concern with the C205 is the lack of authority that two five inch drivers are going to have to drive 70% of my theater setup. I suppose they'll be handed off to my two very capable subs, but can they...

    Revel C208 or C205 for my specific room size.. Help!

    I'm building out a brand new dedicated media space that's 17' x 14.5' and planning on ordering a pair of Revel F206 and M106 for the rear in a 5.2 ch setup. I want to order a C208 because of Amir's glowing review and comments about the massive "Presence" that it projects, but I'm concerned about...

    Best processor choice

    Their website states that they have 10,000 total installations using Trinnov Optimizer (which I already agreed is great). My statement was regarding what percentage of those installations retail sales (Altitude 16/32) account for. My guess is not many, mostly due to the nearly $20,000 price tag...

    I got those numbers from their website, what are you talking about?

    I'll ask the question again. Are there any media outlets doing more comprehensive testing?

    Best processor choice

    Is anybody doing a better job than Amir? To do better we'd need testing methodology that stressed the video switching and all channels at the same time, not to mention on the fly encoding into various surround formats. Who's going to create that testing suite for free?

    You sound like you're in the wrong forum lol. SINAD is a useful measure in Home Theater products precisely because there are often so many different functions being performed. The more that's going on inside a product the greater the risk of one function interfering with the overall performance...

    Full range floorstanders ~$1500 budget

    Exactly how many people do you actually think spend $20k on an HT processor? Their website claims 10,000 installations of Trinnov's Optimizer WORLDWIDE across all product lines and segments. I'd love to know how many units of the Altitude 16/32 have actually been shipped. Again, not knocking...

    I'm aware that their Optimizer is best in class, I just wouldn't pay almost $20k for the privilege.
