Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I think I might have solved the Media Server problem thanks to a fellow Forum member... I rebooted the router, and movies are playing properly now, I will see what happens over the next few days.

Today I will work on finishing up the insulation stuffing around the speakers. I also need to get some new mesh grills for the subs.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Whew... Got the amp at about 1pm today, and I just got it installed. It took much longer than I expected to rearrange, and rewire the whole rack. One nice thing is when I rewired the rack the noise I had from my NUCs is now gone...it is so nice to have a setup that is virtually silent again.

Now I need to learn my way around the Yamaha, and figure out how to get the new firmware, and install it.

I did do a little bit of playing some music in stereo only, and I do have to say it sounded great. Once I get the 2 Atmos channels installed I will run YPAO to get the measurements for the height channel so I can retain Dirac.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I did a little more listening without tuning the setup and I noticed this...

Previously everything was going through the Oppo 103 to the Krell Showcase 7.1 via the analog 7.1 cables where now we are going directly from the NUCs to the Yamaha via HDMI. What I noticed was a much tighter bass, and more definition in the vocals to where individual voices and instruments are even more 3d like (we though it couldn't get any better than it was). I never expected the Yamaha to make it sound this much cleaner than the Krell.

I have to assume the Sabre ESS Ultra DAC ES9016S is much better than the Cirrus Logic CS4382...it also makes me wonder how the ESS Sabre32 Reference ES9018 would sound in comparison.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I never really looked when you mentioned it but 11 channels of amp power in a silent case for about 2500 is a bargain I feel.

Considering the efficiency of my system it is more than enough power for me.

Once i get this setup paid off I am considering getting a custom made 3 channel balanced clone amp made for the front 3 horns. I am looking at this because my Yamaha Pro 4 channel amp runs with the fan on full time (the only Yamaha Pro amp I have that the fan even turns on. I called Yamaha and they said that is the way that one was designed).

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Just ordered 10 more yards of GOM from GIK. Hopefully this will give me enough material to finish the walls and the hallway entrance.

As soon as i finalize the location for the Atmos channels I will get 2 up and running. Hopefully I will find one last good deal on another pair of JBL 8320s for the Atmos channels to finish it off too.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Just cranked up some music to +10 with the Yamaha... 114db from the 2nd row which is 19' from the screen. I would never listen to even a song for more than a few seconds at that level.

yeah! Just because you can!
This is per our conversation. Hope you don't mind. You can chuck it when your done looking. Just seemed like an OK place to show you. I've since moved my mains farther apart slightly, but you get the idea. Tia.

Some heavy curtains would help reflections over the sliding glass doors...not as much as sound panels but i believe it would help.
