very good price, I was looking for this sub one year ago, prices was over £200, but than manage to found more powerful sub sw700 for £250. Anyway £99 is a bargain.

Same price at many other places including Richer sounds if you prefer to deal with them for this great amp. A bit cheaper here but don't know anything about them http://www.hificonfidential.co.uk/denon-avr-x2200w-7-2-channel-full-4k-ultra-hd-a-v-receiver.html?language=en¤cy=GBP&gclid=CjwKEAiA7_OzBRDA8OfT3orp51oSJACVqslIm95XsuL9vEZng2LJvl4jPPtHscyIHTv6SgRlkpHtSRoCheXw_wcB Thanks for the post

They gave a startup kit as well with 20m of TDI CA1320 2mm speaker cable and banana plugs. It looks quite cheap but works fine, but would there be any improvement on getting alternates?

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?

Exceptional AV.

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 .

The Sky HD boxes don't pass 5.1 sound through the HDMI
Really? I genuinely did not know this, I am 90% sure I have passed 5.1 through HDMI to my RX-V671.
or maybe I genuinely haven't :D
It's been a massive issue for years. They've always passed it through the optical, but not through HDMI (stereo only).
They have been fixing it with firmware, most modern/new boxes won't not be effected I think. I've no idea how far back they've managed to roll this firmware issue though - I suspect my early SKY HD box is probably doomed.
Looking in the instructions for the receiver, page 22 seems to suggest hope that you can mix/combine inputs. It's very unclear though. :|
You could be right man, I haven't really taken much notice to be honest with you, most viewing is outside the Sky package i.e Amazon Prime TV and Blu Rays, I am going to check that out though so thank you for the heads up.
I will ask our lass if she has ever heard "Hotpot" from behind her whilst watching Corrie eh? :D

Ha, love it.

I think receivers do such a great job at boosting and improving the audio that even the plain stero works really well.

It annoys me to have a SKY HD box that won't spit out HD audio though. Hopefully I can make it do it, like with my old receiver.

Yeah, I'm like you - I'm more into using other devices. I just want HD sound from them all dammit! :)

Still 3 years m8, and i will take that over 2 years, received the unit today, sound is superb tbh and makes a massive difference, probably if anything it lacks a bit of bass, though you can hear the thud from the ball when its being kicked in the footy on tv, as a example. Tried it on a sci fi film with lots of sound effects and its very good. Well worth the cash based on the other sub £150 soundbars i tested. Music sounds ace, either streamed from my pc or bluetooth from my phone. Remote doesn't seem to be the most responsive controller Ive ever had, but i have yet to sync it to my TV remote, which will sort that problem out.

Just purchased one to replace my Onkyo that smokes when powered on, seems to work but don't like the smoke! This was after a new HDMI board fitted FOC last year by Onkyo. Looks like the bodge board on to modify the power to the HDMI board has failed = smoke. The old HDMI board was 3.3V the replacement is 3.2V

£319 delivered from Peter Tyson: Direct, eBay and Amazon. I had some Amazon vouchers so ordered via Amazon though Peter Tyson was the seller.
OP can you update the price?
Also its 3 year warrantee as Peter Tyson add an extra year.
I wanted an AV Amp with Pre Out (I'm running 5.1 active) so this seems to fit the bill!
TopCashBack have cash back on EBay sales. I've ordered from Peter Tyson in the past. Called them Friday to check the pre-outs etc. staff were really knowledge and helpful - Impressed.

My friend has this, I know it well.
Pros. For films it has a very robust, impressive sound that belies its budget nature.
Cons, The units screen is all but utterly useless for anything volume indication.
The menu structure is not remotely intuitive, and I'm not convinced there aren't a few bug present. My friend has a lot of kit and we are forever trying get the thing to associate various audio inputs and modes with specific HDMI inputs. In this respect it is pretty bad. I couldn't live with it to be honest. But if you have a simple set-up with fit and forget requirements then it offers a lot of performance for the cash.

Can I seek some advise here please?
I have not dabbled in hi-fi kit for decades when I had a nice vinyl based system around a Technics amp MS Festival stand mount speakers and a Fons CQ30 / SME based turntable to handle the disks. That was a very long way back and is long gone.
I am looking to replace our current pretty restrictive Sony Midi system and my Sony 2.1 Soundbar with a network based mini network player (Denon Ceol) and was originally looking at Dali Zensor 1 Speakers until I saw this thread. Would I be better of with these rather than stand mount speakers like the Dali's or even DC6's?
Would these floor mounters give me as good a sound without having to worry about speaker placement and buying stands?
Cheers.

Nice find but I've had a bad experience with the seller just recently. Purchased a set of sennheiser PX 360 bt's. I Decided to try them out around the house and within a week the ear cup gave way. When I contacted Peter Tyson they requested pictures which I provided. The response was borderline belligerent. I was told that physical damage was suspected and a repair would be chargeable - All this from some low res mobile phone pictures. Fearful I was not being treated fairly (innocent until proven guilty and all) I contacted Sennheiser direct. They have agreed to repair the fault free of charge under warranty. The contempt of the representative at Peter Tyson was what I found most astonishing. Maybe just a bad egg but I will be steering clear in future.

I'm new to the world of AV receivers and have learned quite a lot from many of your posts, thanks.
I am thinking of upgrading from my Panasonic 5 yr old 1000w one box dvd cinema system.
I think this Denon AVR-X2100 ticks all the boxes for me and I am considering buying it along with speaker set Tannoy TFX 5.1. or Boston Acoustics 5.1. (any advice/thoughts appreciated).
Also I have tried but failed to find out about zone 2 stereo speakers. Q1. can they be used independently?
Q2. could they be controlled from a phone or tablet from that room? Thanks
Add these to your speaker choice: http://www.richersounds.com/product/speaker-packages/wharfedale/dx1-hcp/whar-dx1
Zone 2 is different with all AV's.
I like the look of those Wharfdale DX1 speakers very much indeed.......I see they are rated 4 ohms,. Would it be OK to use with a receiver that says use 8-16 ohm speakers?

Run them at 8 ohms.

I listened to the Denon X2100 and Sony DN1050 in Sevenoaks, both were similar on 5.1 movie sound, but the Sony had so much more depth on stereo music listening to Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Couldn't believe the difference, I am no audio file but I'm getting the Sony this week. Speakers were the B&W MT50 in case you were wondering, which I am also getting.

Thanks, I hope to visit Richers soon to see what they all look like in the flesh and ask for a demo. Maybe they can inform on the Denon zone 2.

From what I've read it seems the cable comes as part of the package, so it should be the same length/quality no matter where its's bought from. The included cable is even mentioned on the Tannoy website, so any advertised differences are probably due to mistakes on individual retailer websites.

It does not have optical in ideally one would need an AV receiver to power these up. Your receiver should have digital/optical inputs/outputs etc
Ideally? Essentially! No inbuilt amplifier/digital encoder renders a set of speakers like this totally unusable without.

Hi there, if you have a moment I have a question or two. If you are busy feel free to ignore. Basically I am just getting a 42 inch tv for a small room (9ftx11ft about). I will be watching blu rays and playing games. I just got a set of gaming headphones for xbox etc turtle beach px51 and to me watching a blu ray sounded amazing because I have never had surround sound at home. I really like good picture quality and sound quality but I am not about to fork out for it as I have other priorities, anyway. Would a basic 5.1 system make a big difference to my headphones in this small room (I know a big advantage is for when others are watching also but yeah)

If you say it would be a big difference and all I own is a LED tv and blu ray player (xbox/PS) what else would I require , speakers, receiver and appropriate wires? Is wireless a lot easier and cleaner (I had an old wireless speaker set and it was early technology and had major issues with wireless).

Thanks for any time you give.

Hey,

I have no personal experience with surround headphones to do a direct comparison, I know there are true surround headphones and pseudo ones, I hope that the PX51s at £229 RRP are true surround.

As you have other priorities then really it all boils down to whether or not you want others to listen and/or you get tired of having to wear headphones (bear in mind if gaming and talking you still will need some sort of bluetooth earpiece if communicating whilst online gaming)...If you plump for these (although now gone up a tenner to £99, and cabling and an av receiver you are looking for at least the same cost as the PX51s at RRP, which actually to me sounds quite cheap in comparison to a pair of gaming headphones.

I think you need to ask yourself a few questions....

If I plump for an AV Receiver, what is my budget (including wiring)
Do I require network features for streaming music (if so, currently budget AV Receivers do not have those features as standard)
What will be my ratio for music/gaming/film use (to ascertain the sort of speakers you want)

Even in that size room, if you intend a moderate amount of music listening I would go for bookshelf speakers over satellite speakers, with a limited budget then even consider decent second hand options. With satellites the subwoofer has to do the main grunt work of bass frequencies, you would get a more balanced open sound with bookshelf with the subwoofer only kicking in with really low frrequencies.

However if primarily for gaming and movies a cheap set of satellites like this would be fine, also if DIY is an issue, easier installation.

With that size room, you can disregard floorstanders.

With regard to wireless, personally I would not bother, the additional cost of either buying wireless speakers or adding to satellite/bookshelf speakers is not worth it. Bear in mind that a transmitter/receiver is needed, therefore adding a power supply to the setup, meaning you would need a run of cable anyway from the speaker to a power socket, creating in itself another obstacle. Mini trunking round the wall, under carpets etc for cabling is the best solution.

A budget AV Receiver would cost anywhere from £100-£150 from places like Richersounds.com, more if you require networking features...just about all AV receivers these days should have at least 3 HDMI inputs, catering for your PS/Xbox...they carry video and audio..so just a matter of hooking up the hdmi outputs of your consoles to 2 of the inputs on the receiver, then the hdmi output of the receiver to your tv.

As for wiring, look again on Richersounds.com.....for front speaker and centre speaker wiring with bookshelves I would look at good thicker gauge starter cabling like Cambridge Audio Symphony 400 (£2.49/m) and rear speakers you can get away with thinner gauge such as Symphony 100 (99p/metre) or Symphony 200 (£1.49/metre) or for satellites use Symphony 200 throughout.

You would also require a digital coax cable to connect the subwoofer to your receiver.

As for connecting it all up....

Dependent on whether your receiver and speakers have binding post or spring connectors.

http://www.nrpavs.co.nz/archive09/Sold09_htm/Images/AR28LS_binding_post_closeup_540x512_pixels.gif

Spring connectors, push the sprung lever, insert stripped wire, release.
Binding posts, unscrew threaded nut, insert stripped wire, screw tight....

Obviously being aware of polarity in all instances..speaker cabling will have a + and - mark to ensure you get this right (otherwise speakers will be out of phase)

A tidier job if you have binding posts is to remove the end plastic plug caps and install banana plugs on the end of your speaker wire and then its a simple plug in job.

http://www.jeroenvandaal.nl/temp/audio/IMG_2736_800_2.jpg

With everything hooked up, follow your av receiver user manual...most receivers these days come with their own integral microphone for testing the speakers distance and automatically adjusting levels and testing you have the phase correctly. Otherwise you would have to manually measure the distance from each speaker to listening position and program that into your receiver. As for sound level, other than ear guess work in that instance you would require a sound level db meter.

Remember that google is your friend, there are plenty of installation advice tips out there, and forums dedicated to AV...I think I have covered the basics though.

rev6, this is a good article on compression and music....the youtube link comparing an overly compressed and loud sample of Smells Like Teen Spirit against what it should sound like totally shows how compression is killing music.

Changed my Windows default format settings now to 24/96 Hz to see If things are more pleasurable playing 24/96 FLAC.

That's just for shared mode.

It's not. My AV is now receiving a 96KHz input.

Really, crikes didn't know about this. Thanks, and sorry for misinformation.
