  1. Whatmough Audio in Clayton, more likely to meet your budget, but would suggest you need to extend that budget.........
  2. Had 7.1 for 5 minutes, trialed it with LOTR ROTK, and felt it wasted my money (deal clincher), I imagine a fully calibrated Atmos or DTS-x system fitted to a dedicated HT room would be sensational, we rent, so never going to happen, the elephant in the room even with dedicated is availability of title that fully utilises the audio, and then you have studios releasing stuff in Aus that is below what US releases get, so why bother. Apologies for the OT Yama, but my point would also I believe affect LFE output as well, because in the end we know you cannot polish a turd.......
  3. Happy to do a lenda if you don't want to purchase mate, can post or if near Lyndhurst pick up.......
  4. Always love your work Yama..........
  5. So a few more demo's last night, grabbed the Dolby Atmos demo disc, and that was pretty impressive, then got the THX demo at the end of SW Ep1, and omg it lights up the room. And none of this done near reference, it has certainly early on exceeded expectations and looking forward to more, have to say the room response certainly feels more even and rounded, think the decision to go pseudo tactile and centre with the other one was enlightened, thanks K1ll...........
  6. So mate just to try and get you back to a point where you're actually getting amp advice, we probably need to know something about your audio taste, for instance Yammies are known to be bright in their audio performance, Onkyo's are known to be warm and neutral, the one Pio I had was brightish but not to the point of the Yamaha's I've had. Is warranty an important factor? If you like music along with HT, then the Yamaha is probably the best choice, but there is nothing wrong with the other three that way either. And just as a further point in my 11 odd years here the only time I've seen a thread on an amp blowing up because it got too hot, was a Denon that had about a 1/4 inch of ventilation all round, driven at reference, so asking for it. Doesn't matter what equipment you have, keep it well ventilated and it will serve you well, treat it poorly and it won't. I'll leave it at that with you mate, just trying to help, and good luck, whatever you choose of the 4, should be fine, but preferably demo if you can..........
  7. Have had the same issue with Yammies, simple solution, ventilation. Currently have an Integra, drove it for 10 hours at a GTG at reference most of the way last Saturday , hardly warmed it....
  8. Onkyo by a large margin, imho, all good units however....
  9. Week before Guardians 2........... http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=21638
  10. Despite other info, yes in fact they are quite good, as for improvement, well in the eye of the beholder, I have had their basic board 20 years and fair to say it saved at least one replacement bulb for a PJ. They are however exxy, and suggest you shop around. Did a small group buy on them about 8 years ago and save around $600 per unit at the time.........
  11. Will provide more feedback in a week or two guys, want to let it settle in and hit some demo worthy movies, but as stated early thoughts re very positive......
  12. Never had a word from any of them in this place mate..........
