OK, I'm hoping this deal is not for me as I already have some speakers, but no sub or av reciever.

I've a LG 50PS3000 plasma tv that's a few years old now but works well. ( http://www.lg.com/uk/tvs/lg-50PS3000-plasma-tv )
I've two KEF X300 Wireless speakers.
I've two Behringer B2031A speakers (although one is a bit crackly).
I've two Behringer MS40 speakers.

The speakers are not connected to the tv, and I'd like to make use out of them with the TV if possible.

Any ideas on how I should proceed would be greatly appreciated.


I don't think you're going to be able to create a proper 5.1 with active monitors, I don't know allot about them to be honest but seen a few discussion threads people asking about whether they can use them with their AV Receiver and it being a bit confusing (Not sure why you'd connect power speakers into a power amp but I'm no expert). Pre outs I guess?

You could hook 2 up to your TV I guess and create a stereo sound...

Thanks Spritey, appreciate the advice.

At the moment will relax as I'm not due to upgrade the system for a while apart from the AVE
Lighters
Thanks for all the info spritey I will go to richer sounds for a demo. How good is the songs 5.1 in comparison for the money. I don't really have a rear for the speakers in living room it's more to either side of the sofa so is that still ok

No worries. 5.1 positioning is typically either side of you (See below), it's only when you goto 7.1 that you have speakers positioned directly behind you. Most AV receivers have a calibration mic / software so don't worry to much about being 100% accurate. The calibration on the Denon is very good, you get a cardboard stand that you put together and mount the mic on so it can sit at ear level of your seating position. You then follow the instructions and it'll calibrate for each seating position with the mic. I did find it put the bass a little lower than i'd like it, so turned that up manually.. Otherwise though it was perfect.

See Rev6 post for advice on music, pretty much what i'd say. If you need anything else in future - always feel welcome to drop me a message on here. Happy to help.

So jealous of all you first time proper 5.1ers - i wish i could go back and experience the first time i setup a proper 5.1 with AV Receiver in my living room, the feeling of awesomeness didn't wear off for months.

Just a side note. AVForums is a great resource for information also, there are so many knowledgeable people on their forum (Far more so than me) who love to assist and help people out.

I'm waiting for the Sony mdr-1000x to drop in price. Has a lot of features which I and other reviewers prefer over the q35. They all do say that the bose have great comfort to wear for long hours so have a look and see what you think.
When you are spending over £250 you want to make sure it's a purchase you won't regret.

What features are these?
I am in the market for either of these two, listen to a lot of bass heavy tracks.
Thanks

You can hold your hand over the right earcup which disables the noise cancelling and amplies nearby sounds.

The noise cancelling also separates voices from other sounds - therefore if you needed to listen out for announcements you can Disable the noise cancelling for this aspect.

Its controls are also touch sensitive on the ear cup.

I havent heard the Sony's therefore cant comment about any audio differences

this analog technology is not worth anymore than Aldi turntable for 25 pounds as it works on same principles


​Sound quality from high end Analogue is impossible to portray using words - its very frustrating but true.

You have to hear it to believe it.

Once you have sat and listened with intent - then the world of stereo soundstage and pure musicality will leave an indelible picture in your mind and a hugely significant dent in your wallet!!

Please don't knock it until you have tried it.

I have a high quality 5.2 theatre system and yes it is whizz bang and has 1200w but does not come anywhere close to a £30k Analogue setup

this analog technology is not worth anymore than Aldi turntable for 25 pounds as it works on same principles

Yes, but its the precision of the engineering standards that is applied to those principles.
The LP12 will play a record without applying plastic deformation to the vinyl. The dynamic and frequency range + channel separation will be far greater than that Aldi record grinder that probably doesn't even tame the turntables own resonances.
However if you've only ever listened to low resolution MP3's played through boombox speakers you wont have any idea what sound quality and Hi-Fi is about.

The horrible natural colour ones specify 2nd gen. The black one state the generation
An alternative choice if you don't mind about losing a bit of portability is the Sennheiser 598cs which on promo £89 Amazon deal atm.

hi all.. which subwoofer can I use with this please?
FGEvans
got a flubit offer at £271 so just bought it and it will come with a 2 year warranty so happy with that

How did you get flubit to accept the link? It says URL not accepted? Also is £19 really worth sacrificing an extra years warranty
check you hdmi leads - sounds like a handshake issue.

I set mine up last night and was having same issue with my pc - changed over to a newer HDMI lead and problem went away.
anyone having issues with the receiver was using xb1 and screen would go black and keep coming back and then black screen again like its loosing signal
Just ordered via flubit for £262! Now i just need to work out what speakers to buy!

I am very temping to buy it. I was looking for Denon avr-x 4200 but this would be a good deal..
If anyone is still interested in this its now £599 but use code on website to bring it back down to £499. I've had this for a week now and its very good. Also most everything can be customised e.g what is shown on the front when you are watching diff. sources; xbox one, sky, ps4,chromecast etc (although the text is very small and it doesn't have the bigger screen under the 'hood' so quite difficult to read but then again you should know what source you are on!). Also there is no led screen on the remote and i thought it did but again not a problem. My only issue is you cannot change the volume increments, defaulted to 0.5, and I wish I could change this to increase/decrease in increments of 2/3. Also I have to turn on sky before the amp otherwise no sound, abit of a pain as i normally turn the amp on first and then the diff. sources.
Very good price. Went into richer sounds today to buy the denon x3200 (I wanted hdmi zone 2). They had none left, or in warehouse, so they offered pioneer vsx1311 for £525 (then pay extra for warranty). Came home and saw this and just bought it. I already have the marantz pm6005 so I recon this should be very good also.
Tempted and looks a good deal on paper... would this destroy my slightly aging Yamaha RX-v765 or would I be wondering why I bothered though, that's the question!

Any idea where might be good to audition one in central london, RS?
Great price, cheapest around I suppose.

Marantz SR6010, a 9.2-channel amp capable of 110W per channel. Atmos 5.1.4 is supported here, as well as DTS:X and Neural:X 9.1.

As well as the same number of HDMI inputs and outputs and support for a Zone 2, there are 13.2-channel preouts and a 7.1-channel external input. There's also Audyssey MultEQ calibration.

My thought also.
Maybe they fall over without their dedicated prosthetic limbs.
The 2020i is ideal as a front speaker, and the 2010i for rear/surround. They give off a cracking sound.

Good spot, I suppose the Richer Sounds deal is better then.
Yes, the extra £10 on the 2020i's is probably a better buy (unless you are a little cash strapped).

For me need to hit the £250 mark for these specs although in fairness it does have 8 HDMI inputs.
Had this on my wishlist for a while now but Ive just got too much less fun stuff to spend my money on at the mo. They also do a good bundle with some canny tannoy 5.1 speakers and a bunch of freebies thrown in for good measure.

Good price but are they value, or just inflated price tag to start with as they have BOSE written on them. Having had a couple of pairs of BOSE headphones, they're good, but there's better for the price for sure IMO.

Great buy. Only negative I can see is the lack of Zones.
The rest is spot on. MultiEQ XT, HDCP 2.2, Atmos, etc.
By zones do you mean outputs? Sorry, a noob when it comes to this. Actually looking to purchase one of these soon with some decent speakers. Apparently the 3200 has another zone and more power but is it worth the increase in price?
Yes. If you need them it's worth it but for that alone, no. I think it's 100w more.
For power output it depends entirely on the speakers you buy.
Been looking at quite a few and comparing them on different sites - leaning towards the likes of Q Acoustics 2000/3000. I did come across the Dali Zensor 1 5.1/Pico as well - any info on these?
The Zensor are fantastic. I wouldn't go Pico though.
Only seen good things about it - not sure if it's overkill as its only for a small space at the moment. Are these better for small rooms and the 3 and 5 for bigger rooms? Also isn't the Pico the same but smaller?
Not overkill at all. I think there's 1's and Pico 1's.
I'll look properly into them now. Are there any decent places to buy from other than Richer Sounds?

The device's output impedance is 10 ohms according to spec so technically should work best with 80+ohm headphones (but may be quite satisfactory with very low impedance buds).
I've seen one reviewer suggest it works OK with (pretty insensitive) AKG K701 and another say nay (praising performance boost with Geek Out 1000). My reading into that is that very few folks (maybe those with more money than sense) are likely to get caught out by this being underpowered.

No external power source = no good.
These little sticks may struggle (this one recommends 10-12Ω headphones), however for the price I still rate the Fiio E10 very highly and that is USB powered. Recently replaced it with an iFi Audio iDAC2 and it's phenomenal!

Yep. My FIIO E18 can drive full size high inpedance cans very loudly.

I hate these things, such a con. Spend the money on better headphones/speakers instead.
Really? You don't rate external DACs at all? Or just this one


I just don't think there is anything wrong with onboard DACs on most devices, there is so much dishonesty in the audio and video world (What HiFis HDMI cable reviews for example) and in my opinion, USB DACs are an example of this. I have sort of been conned recently by buying a £50 Soundblaster Z for my PC, I cannot tell a difference outside of the improved equaliser settings.

Surely the £50 is better spent on amp/speakers/headphones?

Great, just ordered the black one. Heat added ;)

Went for the black one myself, to match TV. Very impressed with it. I like the way that the sub-woofer does not seem to completely overpower the whole set-up with too much boomy bass. Although it may go quite loud for those that like their big bangs :D

Bluetooth connectivity has been described as a bit harsh for non aptX devices, but I haven't noticed this. Very subjective I guess?

I nearly picked one of these up for £150 in John Lewis a couple of weeks ago. The lack of Bluetooth put me off. Aberdeen JL still has their display one if anyone is interested.
Instead I got a Samsung FW751 for £200, no regrets :)
Thanks for feedback... according to Amazon website description, the YAS-203 has got bluetooth.. quoteBluetooth Wireless Music Streaming from your Smartphone or Tablet
Enjoy music from your smartphone or tablet wirelessly, with the full surround sound experience of the YAS-203 and with support for aptX audio coding, Bluetooth performance is better than ever, delivering full audio bandwidth for sound quality the same as wired listening with both compressed and non-compressed sources. In addition, a Bluetooth standby mode provides the convenience of having the YAS-203 turn on and off automatically.
You're right I stand corrected, it was a 201 I saw.

No problem.. I hope the Samsung is working out well for you..
Looked at reviews first = Digital Trends said it does have Bluetooth ? . I wouldn't have bought it otherwise , I think it's good value , maybe just for me ? , well worth Heat .
