4 x Volt 6 Surround Speakers

Just change my Xpa 5 to 4 x Crown 1502.  Currently using satelite speakers for surround.  Find them a bit weak and lagging as i am using M & K MP 150 for L R C channel.

Still using old Onkyo 809 AV Receiver though.  Maybe it's time for dirac.  8)
Gears: Sony S380 BDP, AC Ryan Mini HD 2, Onkyo TX-NR809, XPA 5

Speakers: Dynaudio Audience 42 SAT (L & R), Dynaudio Excite X22 (Center),  Mordaunt Short Genie MS402 (SL+SR+SBL+SBR), Subwoofer : Rythmik F15.

Speaker wire: QED

That will be really nice and will be the real deal. I would have went for this as well but kinda spent too much this round to fork out additional 2.5k for N7.

Jag, still using a laptop? This should be your first priority of order for upgrade. Media Player has come a long way and its becoming quite stable now since the days of the famous Korean brand - TViX - if anyone still can remember. When it first came out...it cost nearly $600+. The next one should be the long overdue 4K Projector.

I’m evaluating both Zidoo X9S and AppleTV. But I’m still drawn to the HTPC route. True that the laptop has to go. :)

4K pj is on the cards now that we are in the UHD HDR era. Disappointing that laser 4K pjs still has some ways to go.

5. A decent sofa or lounger that fits my puny theatre room
