Dear XP bros,

djblackfm has been an extremely good pal of mine. Got to know him unexpectedly via carousell, and from there we hit it off to became very good friends!

This is actually my humble little home and djblackfm has been extremely helpful in assisting to coordinate these sessions, plus some other stuffs which i really really appreciate a lot!

He is friendly, willing to share knowledge, and most important, he did it without expecting anything in return, which i wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU here! Thanks bro for the support most of the time when i needed help! He really live up to being "If we dont share or exchange knowledge we wont grow & understand. Be more open, Share & Learn." lol

Am actually a member in XP for quite sometime already but not been very active, until recently where i started my small online business named Ovation United (https://www.facebook.com/OvationUnited/), bringing AV gears to my friends. Some XPrians has already bought something from me already :), This is where my supporting pal here, plus another member which i did not catch his nick (sorry), urges me to be active all over again (which i am trying to :P) here in XP, and if able to, bring some awesome gears (like the AC Infinity Aircom T10) to the bros here.

So here i am, sharing my rigs, the purpose is for me to know more, learn more, understand more and more importantly know more good pals like djblackfm. Any comments, ideas, etc are all welcome. Be open, share, learn and have fun!

In response to Doggie Howser and about Marantz AV8805, well i was a AVR-X7200WA user for almost 4 years. which i personally think the 7200 was bright. I wasn't using Emotiva at that time, purely integrated AMP. The concept of separates intrigued me when i first saw djblackfm's setup last time and got poisoned. Lol... i was still using KEF R series at that time... and i've hence moved to Polk Audio since 6 months ago. Again thanks to my good pal, djblackfm haha.

In response to petetherock about Marantz AV8805 and emotiva, well... im more of an all rounder person, in both music and movies... plus, im also kind of oddball, you can say i like to try different combi, in order to know more and share with my pal... i have tried different pairing, Def Tech BP series with Mcintosh, Marantz Polk, Def Tech Demand Series with Denon etc etc... and majority of time sound reproduced are different lol..... i have not yet visit any of XPrians open house before and i most glad to be invited for one, if time allows of course... as i feel bad leaving my 2 young kids in care by my wife alone :P

As compared to 8805, i went full XLR connection this time instead of RCA from 7200...due to my smart home smart switches, XLR solved the static sound which caused by one of my smart switch, which of course am delighted. :)

Not comparing other AVRs apart from my 7200, in my opinion, the reproduction of the sound from 8805 is a little on the warm side which soothing to my ears now. The sound is accurate and clear (i guess it depends on source as well). With 8AK4490 32-bit stereo DACs across all channels, it doesn't lose out to my ES9028 DAC Raspberry Pie player either, just saying... I enjoyed movies and musics more than i enjoyed with 7200 now, maybe due to they are separates? or speaker change perhaps? In anyway, i enjoy more now than my previous rig, at least i don't feel fatigue when listening or watching movies long hours.

I am using 13.2 Auro 3D setup now, at times i will switch between Atmos, DTSX and Auro 3D using Atmos underlying format. Again, my personal opinion, i kind of liked Auro more, perhaps for the VOG. For Atmos listeners, it may sound otherwise though.. no choice, due to my speakers placement limitation, i guess it my best position. I did heed another XP bro's advice to bring my surround speakers higher by few inches, damn im glad i heed his advice and it sound whole lot nicer to me.

I guess i've typed long enough else you guys will start sleeping, but hey, i welcome this open house to XPrians here to share or exchange knowledge, and to grow, to understand, and to learn from each other. Comparison is inevitable i guess but lets all do it in a healthy way :) I just want to make more friends and learn more from you guys here heh heh.. Different listeners, different taste, different opinions...there is no best rigs or setup so to speak, more importantly is how the knowledge shared can make full use of our current rigs to maximize its potential 8)

PS: i still have my pair of KEF R700 around, hence we can really hear the difference between American designed Speakers VS England designed Speakers. For now, in order not to confuse on timing and availability, djblackfm will still be the POC, until the 1st 2 sessions are over, i will take over personally if i have the time. :)

Looking forward to my first sharing session with the bros here! ;)

awesome ! :) Distributor? :) wish good sales guys :)

Rock123, u won't like Marantz sound bro..
