Re: My system 5 weeks after moving

Keiser,


Great looking set up Yes Whilst I'm saying 'what an awesome looking tv set-up' my wife is using the same verb about your photo's but  unfortunately with reference to your wooden floor! Bit of a sore point (like my knees) in this house at the moment as I've just finished fitting one myself. That's a wooden floor, sadly not a tv! Crying


Enjoy!

Thankyou Nicholas,


Glad you like the set up and your wife likes the floor!  As the thread title states I've recenlty moved house and I had been eyeing up an oak floor for a while, I went for engineered oak in the end and i'm well chuffed with it, it goes well with the gloss black unit etc.


Thanks again and hope your knees are mended soon fella!

Re: My system 5 weeks after moving

Hi Keiser1, this is a really interesting thread, firstly your system looks great, secondly i also have the Mission MCubes and use them with a Denon 1717 Amp (about £250 when bought a few years ago). 

I have been thinking of upgrading the Amp and speakers because the bass sounds really hard (no punch).!

Would you recommend looking at a dearer Amp like you have yourself , will the M Cubes then give me what i have been missing without the additional expense of having to replace the speakers as well?

Your advice would be greatly appreciated and could determine the upgrade route that i take!

Re: My system 5 weeks after moving

Nice system , Love the way you have balanced it out with the small speakers, alot of av systems seam to be over bearing with large speakers that surround you, but with your clean line and open space aproach it makes for a far better looking and comfortable viewing.   Very nice job sir ...

Hi Chris,


There seems to be an route that people take when they upgarde there system for better sound and that normaly points at changing your speakers, it wasn't long ago i was looking at doing the same thing. But I would definatly recommend looking at an amp upgrade first, my system sounds so much better since changing to the Pioneer sclx72. I can actually confidently say theres a night and day difference between the Denon 1909 and the Pioneer amp I'm using now.


You've got to remember aswell the M-Cubes where £1200 when they first came out, since dropped down in price alot but when they where last reviewed they where given the top prize of 5 stars,. I think there a bit of a marmite product you either love them of hate them, to me my system sounds fantastic and powered by a higher end amp thats set up properly the Missions are definatly capable of sounding great.


Get an amp on demo if you can and hear the difference i'm sure you will be pleased.


Look forward to reading your views.


P.S Pioneer sc-lx72 for £900 = Bargin and a very big smile when watching multi channel films

Thank you Darrell, appreciate your comments fella.


I agree. I much prefer style speakers in a average size room compared to big floor standers.


I'm hoping to get my BDI Mirage 8227 (weather permitting) delivered on monday so I'll be posting some update pics soon.

Re: My system 5 weeks after moving

Very nice!!  Interesting that the mcubes do such a great job and being wife friendly to boot!!  Similiar aesthetics to my system with the black gloss finish of the cabinet and the Pioneer screen!!  Is the new cabinet gloss black also??

Re: My system 5 weeks after moving

Hello John,


I think the smaller the speaker the more wife friendly they all are!


The new unit has a very dark grey class on the top and the same dark grey glass for the 3 doors on the front. The sides are then in black but not really glossy. Its perfect for what I need as its very child proof so my daughter can't stick her fingers everywhere, its also fully vented so unlike the unit I've got at the mo all my kit will not cook in it.

Re: My system 5 weeks after moving

That is a seriously nice cabinet!!!  Keeps the front of the unit looking very tidy indeed!!  Wish my cabinet had glass doors on the front of it and a cable management system at the back.  What put me off a 3 component wide system was that it would limit the amount of space either side for my rx 6's and sub!!  There would have been no wall on show at all!!  Did think about the atacama equinox av but was not being loved by my wife!!  The cabinet that is!!  A serious investment in the bdi also but very cool!!

 

Nice one!!

Nice one!! 



It is a very nice cabinet and its built brilliantly, the cable management works a treat, before my Alphason unit had to be 3-4 inches off the wall becuase of cables,now because of the managment system in this one the BDI unit is tight to the skirting.


I dont know if you've already seen but BDI do do the unit in a 2 door version?
