  1. Hi, IMHO, a flat TV screen will not change anything (or so few) in the bass region where room size and shape are responsible for non linearities (room modes). Nevertheless, we are listening to a combination of direct sounds and first reflexions. Adding a flat reflective surface in the room can theoretically modify the "direct sound/first reflections" ratio. And in the medium/high region, it can probably slightly change the sound stage and imaging of a system. But to what extend a small surface (like a TV screen) can really change the sound compare to floor and c
  2. Hello sphinxsix, Good point. High DR is of no interest if the music is bad, and or poorly mastered. But it is a pity to remove from the music one of its important (to my taste) component.
  3. Hi, An example of good DR. And it makes a huge difference...
  4. Hello Ram, Maybe, I am not the best person for home theater set up advices. My knowledge is theoretical from what I read. I would like nevertheless to underline some points. The most important information you mentioned in your post is that you are listening at an average volume of 70 to 75 dB. In that case there is no need to go with the 8260. The 8351 is perfectly able to do the job even at a 4 meters distance. The SPL attenuation due to the listening distance will be in addition quite low because your room (I check the pictures you posted on the Genelec Community Forum)
  5. Hello Ragera, Quite a lot of questions in your post! Basically 3 reasons for change : - The M2 with its 38 cm woofer and double diaphram compression driver was a dream for me. - I had the opportunity to make a bargain on the M2 and Crown amplifier. - My listening distance being 4 meters I had to push the 8260 quite hard when listening loud. As for the comparison between the 8260 and the M2, I made it after room correction for both the Genelec and the JBL. In my room, both speakers are true full range with a bass extension down to 20 Hz at 0 dB. Soundstages, as well a
  6. Hello, Not with the JBL but with my previous speakers (Genelec 8260). And as expected the further from the backwall, the lower in frequency the cancellation induced by the reflexion on the backwall. The positionning very close to the backwall created of course a big boost around 50 Hz, which I corrected in using the Crown equalisation capabilities. I tried to have them closer together without any improvement in imaging. Udayan
  7. Hi, Yes the Crown is really a very good amplifier. But I can't compare with other amps because I changed also my speakers .... As for the comparison with Bryston, I have no idea. I am not sure that the 4 x3500 HD is better than the XLS 2000. It has some additionnal features and output power. But if you do not need these additionnal features ... Udayan
  8. Hi Roch, I bought them as a system. The associated amp is the Crown ITech 4x3500 HD. It is very easy to install. I measured the response of the system in my room and I introduced the appropriate corrections in the Crown. The sound is exceptionnaly good. Udayan
  9. Some changes since my last post... The speakers are now JBL M2 and the room received a laminate flooring ... Udayan
  10. Yes I'm sure you knew, but I can't miss such an opportunity to make a good word
  11. Hi sphinxsix, I would rather say "Asstraps" because these are additional seats !!!
  12. Hi, Genelec 8260, Fanless computer with RME soundcard, Nas Synology, JRiver MC 21
  13. My dac are inside my monitors and 3 meters away from my computer. But the output is aes/ebu.
