  1. Thanks for the advice Quark and Snoopy, I ended up spending a little bit more to get a Denon AVR-X3600H that was on sale for a decent $2099. I have been living in the dark ages in terms of what AVRs can do, now like a kid in a candy store playing with the features. Guess I'll be using the living room setup more than I anticipated!
  2. I'm assuming room correction is something I could potentially tweak manually though? There's also the question of longevity - would there be any reason why their cheaper range won't last as long? I suppose if I'm considering something that I want lasting at least 10 years like my Denon is getting to - the cost spread out over that duration might justify a more expensive option.... wonder if I've just talked myself into spending more ?
  3. Has anyone had any experience with Pioneer's VSX range (in particular the VSX-LX304)? I've been on the lookout for a "not so expensive" 9.2ch AVR to use with my secondary setup in the living room so that I can power the 7.1 setup there and a 2 speaker Zone 2 setup outside. It seems to tick all the right boxes for me, but I'm just a little wary judging by how few reviews I can actually find online of this AVR. I know the tried and true saying of "you get what you pay for" - in this case seems to be about $1600, but can't help but wonder if I can get away with this for a setup I migh
  4. Good point, was a little naïve for me think that I could just wire up the speakers and expect the AVR to let me assign whatever I feel like as Zone 2! Yeah, depends on price point - not really keen on splashing out on the "guest" setup.
  5. Hmmm, had a feeling this would be the case - thanks for the replies everyone! Going to need to buy another AV receiver anyway so might as well keep a lookout for an affordable 9.2 one.
  6. Usually around -13 depending on what I'm watching. Goes to -20 if wifey is watching with. Free to air television is always -24 or softer though, those ads shout real loud ?
  7. I've got a pretty standard setup that I use to watch movies: TV (dumb type with zero bells and whistles) connected via HDMI ARC to AV receiver (Denon AVR-2311) PC connected via HDMI to AV receiver Speakers connected to AV receiver (oh really?) At random times whether or not anything is playing, the video feed will cut out (TV goes blank) for about 1 or 2 seconds before coming back on (also re-displaying the text that tells you what the video source is) while the audio continues playing. I have not noticed this happening while just watching free-to-air televisio
  8. I've currently got a setup where there are 7 speakers in the living room (Front + Center + Surround + Surround Back), then another 2 outdoor speakers (all passive), with all the cables leading to a cabinet. Would the outdoor speakers work if plugged directly into Zone 2 pre-outs? I suspect the answer is no, so the next question is: Is there a way for me to cheap out by using a 7.1 AV receiver instead of buying a 9.2 AV receiver to drive the outdoor speakers (that I don't foresee myself using often) as well?
