    Funny thing is that the long cord required to connect the sub to the receiver in order for it to be behind the couch creates the exact amount of delay that it needs.

    Ah, but you are using two subs. I would do that if using two subs. I'm using one.
  3. Where do you keep your front-firing sub?

    I have always found it awkward that we are expected to place a sub off to the side somewhere when we can't have it right between the front speakers. A friend of mind mused that maybe a sub would be...

    Haha if I got new speakers, I would just be replacing the normal Monitor 70's with the Series 2 versions that are all black. I would lose a bit on the resale of what I already have.

    Thanks everyone!

    FYI - I do leave the grills on, but they don't fully cover the silver and it just sticks out like a sore thumb in my decor.

    I want to paint it black....

    Yes I know, this will be sacrilegious and cringeworthy for many of you, me included...but it must be done.

    I have a pair of Monitor 70s in black with silver facing. The silver facing looks really...

    Valid points, though I do feel that even at 320kbps an MP3 is not CD quality. There are certain subtleties and dimensions in a recording that simply can not be reproduced once the data has been...
  9. What's with the weak MP3 format downloads they give you with records?

    It seems that with many new record purchases the company offers you a free MP3 download of the album.

    Would it be so difficult to include a CD quality copy either as a disc or a download? I don't...

    Wonderful! Post some pics! At the very least I can enjoy looking at it and feeling nostalgic. And I still had that bottom cabinet piece for many years after the burglary. I used it for many random...

    They were actually "Turbo Thrusters." One can only imagine that turbocharging a mediocre speaker could make it....more mediocre.

    Ah that makes sense.

    Does anyone have any search keyword suggestions? After going with the model number, I've tried several terms like vintage, 1980's, compact stereo, integrated stereo, etc. Did...

    I managed to find another picture from this series of the rear, and it says the model number is SE-P5. Searching high and low and coming up with nothing but service manuals and replacement belts. It...

  15. Can anyone ID the model number of this old Panasonic system?

    My father had this one when I was a kid. After he died it got stolen in a burglary. I always wanted to replace it if for nothing else but the sentimental value. I happened to find a photo of it after...

    I was hoping to get away with under three hundred US dollars, and even better if fewer. But I think the save up route is starting to look really good.

    Now is there any way to run it without a...
  17. Best cheap network music player with FLAC support?

    I have a hard drive almost full of flac files now...and I'm sick of using my computer's HDMI out as the means to play them through my system. My Seagate Theater (that I bought only to stream Netflix)...

    The new ones I got from newegg are in the exact same spot in the room and powered by the exact same receiver. So it couldn't be any sort of room or power issue.

    I would say it depends entirely on the purpose. For a home theater or for multichannel music I would vote for running it through as LFE since the processor will be sending the signals as per the way...

    Well I sent them an email a few days ago, as I never have time to make phone calls. Have not heard back from them yet.

    I also noticed that the low end on these new ones is much more full bodied...

    How many skipped audio cassettes as a main format? I recall in the late 80's I went from records to CD's. Audio cassettes were to me nothing more than a means of recording stuff or for making mixes...

    For me it's a blend of many formats. For some reason I can not get enough of jazz on vinyl, even with the snaps, crackles and pops. There is just something about the warmth and overall kinetic...

    Mine (70's) came yesterday and they are beautiful. Good solid black, all-business color scheme and a warm sound. I only wish I had considered these in the first place rather than the original silver...

    Last week I powered a pair of Monitor 70's with an Onkyo TX8211 (peak 50wpc) just to see how they sounded and they did quite well. So I see no issues with your Sony in driving the 40's.

    Monitor "Series II"

    It seems that every Monitor sold on newegg.com is a "Series II." What is the difference between them and the older models?
