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

Hey Ron is there any way you could have made changes that did not take effect until something was reset\power cycled? Last Tuesday your system sounded very different than the last time I heard it.

The only settings would have been the Dirac boxes, but those are on 24/7. I am at a lost as to why it changed so much.

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

I am having the worst luck lately... Friday I went to power up the rack, and the Sub amp was dead. I called Yamaha, and got the address for the repair (warranty), and dropped it off today. The Tech said he thinks it might be the Power Supply(from what I told him happened). Hopefully it doesn't take long to get it back. Meanwhile I am listening to everything crossed over at 60Hz. It def is lacking warmth now.

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

had a pleasant surprise yesterday... I found out you can rip SACDs with certain Oppo, Cambridge Audio, and Pioneer players. I then searched and found a Open box Pioneer Elite BDP-80DF for a fair price, and ordered it...I should have it Thursday. Now I can rip my Jazz at the pawnshop 5.1 disc to my NAS. I also just ordered Genesis Invisible Touch in 5.1 too. I love the 5.1 versions of my favorite bands.

That's nice to know. Do you have a list of which players?

Here is the link... It can only be done with the players that can play SACDs, and meet the following requirements: 1) have Mediatek chips MT8580 (like Oppo 103/105, Cambridge Audio 752bd/cxu, Pioneer bdp-lx58/88 ) or MT8560 (like Pioneer BDP-160/170). The BDP-180 is removed as it was found to be incompatible, and others have used the BDP-80DF successfully (plus it is still available BNIB).
2) have an ethernet connection
3) have normal factory firmwares (meaning no mods)

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

This would be great but I dont for a second understand what he said to do....
I got so far as to understand that I have the proper SACD player and well, thats it.

Good Listening

I will be trying my first SACD backup rip this week... I will post how it goes. From what I have read once you do the first rip it is automatic (if you leave the player in standby mode). Post #26 in the link gives a little more info.
