RE: my DREAM system. oh, maybe one day...

I'm still surprised that you didn't stick with the AVI DM5s.  Could you not get rid of the hum?

RE: my DREAM system. oh, maybe one day...

 

I did get rid of the hum - by grounding the (new) receiver. The hum was not a DM5 issue, it was a ground loop in my system. I returned the DM5 as the the sensitivity of input was too high and the senistivity  of the signal sensor was too low for my uses. DM5s are great - I just could not use them in my set-ups. I still plan to go all-active one day, but I need to find a suitable centre speaker first.

Well yes, that's kind of what I was expecting.

I'm not sure I understand - how does that mainfest itself?

going into standby when I want them to continue to play. The level of input signal was too low to keep the sensor 'on'

Oh. More of an issue with rears where there might be no signal at all for prolonged periods, presumably Beee

Those new SCM7s look lovely, thanks for the close up pics. How are they sounding?

RE: my DREAM system. oh, maybe one day...

they look all right, plain but very solid style, finish quality is good.

Sound wise, I did not try them on thier own - maybe I should! I will. - but as rears they sound very good. I only tried them very briefly, did not have time yet to finish the set-up properly. this week-end hopefully.
