The sound is very good indeed, still running in the speakers.
I think it was the right decision to buy the Pioneer in combination with these speakers, Still have some tweaking to finish with the amp as well.
This will be one in the eye for those that keep saying that Pioneer AV amps are bright. I think you made the right choice too, it's a cracking amp. Glad you're happy with it, and hope you get many years of enjoyment out of it
Thanks very much David, I have to say that the sound is definitely not bright , in fact it is on the warm side, whether this will change over time is another matter.
The only thing I cannot work out is if the amp as a pass through option for the HDMI, so I can watch something in HD but may not want to listen through the speakers.
The Denon did have this option and it was quite useful.

Thank you for your kind comments, as you are aware the sub placement is not ideal, but there just is not anywhere else it can go.
I will let the system run in for a couple of weeks and then work out what to do next.
Maybe some form of Sub EQ whether it is REW or Antimode will be needed.

Typical room so not ideal for speaker placement,we are thinking of putting in a smaller fireplace and mounting the TV above.

Thanks Rick, we were going to have a house built and would have had a dedicated room, but resources are getting tighter in this current climate, I also work in local government so with 25% + cuts on the way, now is not the best time for the house.
I hope things remain stable for you.

Hi John Barlow
I am sure i have recommened the DSP-Z7 on more then three occasions
Anyway i am trying to maintain a level of consistency
OK, let's stop the name-calling and accusations of spamming right now...
Do not want my post turning into cat fight and on my parade.
you can only work with the space you have and have to make the best of it, but there are easier ways (not neccessarily cheaper) to do it than others which is why I use the Ant..............
use what I use, sorry
and as you asked me personally via email I didn`t think you would be offended if I mentionerd what you asked me on your thread
Anyway back on topic, a great room which looks just.........great
no more to say Al
Not offended at all, some people seem to like stirring things up.
Thank you for your time and swift responses, great customer service.
hi, your set up looks awesome. im thinking of buying apex fronts and running radius rears with my pioneer 920
how does your system sound at low/medium levels? i cant afford the full apex setup and would like to upgrade the amp to a higher end pioneer in the future, i dont want to spend a fortune on the apex fronts if i cant make the most of them.
im going to demo this set up at frank harvey but i just wanted the opinion of someone who owns it and lives with it everyday
look's fantastic Michael...well done building your own cabinet waow!!! bet it all sound's great, the sub has a very Velodyne look in the pic's, benny.

If the fronts could fit the spaces besides the center...
Thanks for the comments, yes is does sound very good, speakers getting to the point of being run in now.
