  1. Keep calm people ... don't let fear prevent the making of rational decisions.

    Cannot agree more. This finding is much like listening to supposed high resolution music files. Listening to a ''High Resolution' version of a Roy Orbison or Elvis track is rather pointless. It is the quality of the recording process that is more important than its resolution. I do laugh at some websites offering HR versions of albums mastered in the 1960's. Mind you some in that day were done very well, given the technology available. Hence buyers of UHD discs need to be aware of how well the mastering process is done - hence the appearance of websites such as hidefdigest.com.
  3. This is now SOLD !! Gone to a good home in Perth.
  4. Good on you ... I can atest to what 2 subs will do when integrated well.
  5. Yes but someone is coming to look at it this evening.
  6. Cannot agree more ... at the risk of getting shouted down, there are many on this forum that I would put into the category of "rich, impulsive". Many need to have the latest now so they go out and buy it.
  7. Trinnov Amethyst Review

    When one looks at all of the controls under the bonnet of the Trinnov, it really is mind-boggling. I have learned enough to know about what it does, how you can tweak various aspects, and what not to fiddle with. Then it is just all about kicking back and enjoying!

    As Kramer would say .... Oh you better believe it !
  9. Trinnov Amethyst Review

    Yes that is a very good point, although I take the view that if something is working beautifully don't tamper with it i.e. if it aint broke, then don't fix it. My view is that the bass traps have contributed to the room environment given that they DID provide an improvement PRIOR to the Trinnov being in the room.
  10. Exactly Blackman! Then again .. it really is too early for all of this. Says me sitting on the sidelines

    No offence taken.
  12. Trinnov Amethyst Review

    Again .... you did not understand my situation. I have already used bass absorbers in the 4 corners of my room, and I obtained advice to not do more than that. I had a consultant visit my residence and listen to what I had done. This consultant COULD have sold me more passive treatment/products, but told me in good faith that he would not do any more. So you see I HAVE explored many factors in making my decisions along the way. The Trinnov is a unique piece of equipment and I would suggest that it would improve most people's listening experience.

    The issue is not whether a system SHOULD need Trinnov or some other 'magic' box as you put it .... if you had understood the evaluation of my situation, you would realize that I had determined that the ROOM is a significant determinant in what sound you actually hear. The issue and my finding is that the Trinnov offers a tremendous improvement. It was my goal to obtain the best from my equipment. As I have stated, it has been a mission accomplished. Your conclusion that it was the weaknesses in speaker design, is palpable nonsense.
  14. Trinnov Amethyst Review

    @Brodricj ....... A few points about your last post: Overall the tone is not very positive....like some of your other posts when I was evaluating my options. 1. Your first word IF suggests that a possibility that there was no improvement. 2. Not a good idea to denigrate Paradigm speakers. 3. Your last suggestion shows that you know little of what the Trinnov does.

    Ahhh ok ... so you are suggesting that I adopt Roon rather than JRiver Music Centre?
