Re: My Hifi and Home Cinema Set Up
El Hefe:

Thaiman,


Had a look at the MF PreV3. The specs says it uses the similar Nuvista technology. But with this model, I cannot bi-amp my EPOS. Will have to go back to single wire. Not sure would want to go down that road.



I reckon MF pre V3 with single wire will still be much better than X-A1 pre out bi-wire....but that's me, a guy who never can hear much different in Bi-more-wire.

Re: My Hifi and Home Cinema Set Up

Using 2 set of different main speakers is good idea especially when watching movies Geeked

Re: My Hifi and Home Cinema Set Up

yes i prefer to separate between stereo audio and surround sound audio. It makes life much more simpler.

Re: My Hifi and Home Cinema Set Up

Latest upgrade. Added an Airport Express which only worked for 24 hours. Then it went kaput. No lights. Tried resetting and turning the power supply off and on again. Still no change. Back to Appel store tomorrow. Sad


 Anyone had similar experience?

Re: My Hifi and Home Cinema Set Up

Got me Airport Express sorted out. The Apple store just gave me a new one and have been running for 1 week now without issues.


Decided to disassemble my complete system today. Cleaned out all the interconnects and banana plugs on the speaker cable. Retuned my subwoofer using a Star Wars DVD, changed  the position of my AV receiver from the bottom rack to the top.


 Voila ! Cleaning up the interconnects and banana plugs improved the sound of my set up. Dont know how that can be. But definitely better bass control.

Re: My Hifi and Home Cinema Set Up

Hi all,


 


Just upgraded my CD player to a Rega Apollo. Got it a very good price from the KL International AV show. I got it for about GBP380.00. Also purchased together with QED conduit. Managed to get it for GBP 25.

Re: My Hifi and Home Cinema Set Up

Hi all,


Have just upgraded my TV to a 55" Samsung LED TV. Here are some pictures. I gave a basic review under the TV and Projectors forums.

Lovely setup you have there El, I am also from Malaysia and I love your new LED tv.

Off topic, you working in KL? I missed the last KLAV show and seemed that you got yourself a good deal for that cdp.
