Another new shack member here, Quattro 12012 owner checking in from the UK nearly 15 months of ownership and loving every minute spent with them. Originally started with a duo setup but wasn't long before I'd added another 2. Eagerly awaiting more details on the new / next range of speakers…

Thanks for the welcome guys. I look forward to reading everyone's experiences with these awesome subs. I'm slowly working my way through a backlog of recent releases so a bit behind the latest stuff I'll try and post my thoughts as I go along

I don't know about you chaps but I have a massive catalog of very good demo material which I have found the new DXD subs absolutely lap up, and make it sound even better than I have heard on previous subs and that includes Ken's previous M&K subs, not sure if it is worth listing here but it is mostly music with lots of great bass, if anyone is interested?

Yes John, I'd definitely be interested!

Grats on the Quattro 12012! That must be immense, very jealous. Where abouts in the UK are you located?

I would love a good demo list recruit, maybe you could edit the second post in this thread and turn it into a demo material post ? I might have a good few suggestions!

Its been great to have so many people come out the woodwork to post in this thread, I was not expecting it when I opened it!

Just knowing what's on tap and going through a great deal to get the foundation of my setup as best I could , playing a movie back at reference in the past would indeed be loud with various peaks due to some area's being out of proportion to those that where up to the task! After leveling the playing field (DXD being one of the upgrades) its like taking sports car with 200mph capabilities to the autobahn to cut lose after being confined to day to day driving. I only go reference on a first run of a release I've wanted to see as I may visit the local cinema at best twice a year. Most movies I watch at around -13-17 depending on content. My primary listening is late nights with classical or jazz at around -35 to -29. so when the weekend comes its time for fun.

As a side note not all movies are recorded the same and some absolutely shine at reference and the current on the top of that list is "Oblivion" .
I 100% agree that some movies are louder than others, and the kit you have makes a big difference to how loud you can go before it sounds awful. I used to find -20 for films loud with my old kit but now I can go to -10 and its not uncomfortably loud. Lord of the rings is a film I find is mixed loudly, where as "flight" I could have at -10 and it didn't seem loud at all. I am really looking forward to Oblivion, its on my LOVEfilm list as we speak!

Live in the Channel Islands. I've been lurking around a few forums I tend to read rather than post most of the time

Yes, for some strange reason I cannot edit atm, I have just PM'd admin to ask for this to be looked at, so that I can slot it in
