Re: My system 5 weeks after moving

Hi Micheal, thank you for your comments much appreciated.


 


roger06, the mission's are definatly "enemy friendly" speakers. They look good and sound good aswell, I recently watched How To Train A Dragon on Blu-ray with the Pioneer amp on the THX Cinema setting and i was really impressed buy the quality. I had a Denon avr 1909 before and thought the speakers sounded good then but this Pioneer LX72 really made a night and day difference.


 


Lewis P, the belkin has made a difference to the sky pic, there is definatly less pic noise on the standard channels,as for Blu-ray and gaming i've not really noticed a difference.


 


stu31, i hunted high and low for a black one and couldn't get one! i'm going to wait and see what it looks like in the BDi unit and if it stands out i'll be popping out for black spray.Did you manage to get a black one or have you sprayed yours?


 


Need some advice now, how do you mange to copy a thread i want to reply to and paste it in the box i then reply in? I've tried quote but that didnt get me anywhere..........

'Tis a great looking setup! The M Cubes are tiny especially when you look at what's driving them! I have the SC-LX82 and it's just supreme...

Thank you grdunn123.


I totally agree with you in regards to the small M-Cubes and the powerfull Pioneer, I didn't demo the Missions with the amp and was a little worried about the Pioneer being an over kill, but I was pleasently surprised and they seem to be coping just fine. Theres alot more detail in the sound from this amp compared to the Denon 1909 I had before.
