Nobody said this was going to be cheap....ordered the equipment racks. I'm going to split up the amplifiers with 4 per cabinet , 2 6 channel and 2 2 channel per.....
The 3415 Bass units with 8 15 inch drivers will be bridged using 16 of the 24 channels of the 6 channel amps. That will leave me with 8 channels...4 for the 2 subs, 4 for the 4 surrounds. The 8 channels using the 2 channel amps...6 channels will drive the horn cabinets, 2 channels for the front center.... Using all 32 channels. 6 x200w horns =1200w ,1 center = 1500w, 4 surrounds = 2400w, 2 subs x 1200w = 2400w, 8 bass drivers x 1200w = 9600w for a total of 17,100 watts...but will never get close to that output.
I also ordered 2 pair of QSC SR-1290's for the mid ,rear channels and 1 single for the front center channel. Cabinet maker comes Tuesday.
I talked to my cinema tech today about the digital signal out from the 9000 Panasonic server to my HDMI switcher,then into the QSC DCP digital input. What I will have is 192Khz audio. I also can switch over to my Sony UBP X1100 ES player. The Panasonic uses a 32 bit processor. The QSC DCP300 is straight through on the digital side. The cable will be 2 DB25 AES/EBU x FJ45 AES/EBU with 8 channels of digital audio.
I picked up one of these today, or a option to buy. It is brand new and a cost of 1/5th what they sell for.
They require a license i believe to use the software. But they have everything I would need including Dirac live.
Anybody use one?
I have heard the same thing. The Dirac feature is what I want, though I need to do some more research. The price was right and it was NIB with software. I don't think I'll be able to run the Auro3D....anyway I'll have the QSC and this. Being a gear junkie is tough.
Some HT gear arrived today....
A pair of Fostex T500mkII tweeters
and the Barco AP24-3D processor
My MKIII’s won’t be here till June,but now I can have the horn cabinets made as I now have all the pieces. I have decided on solid walnut as the assembly should weigh about 200 lbs a piece. Each 4 way speaker should weigh 500+ pounds each.
I think it's amazing what I can find on the web during lot's of time because of the stay @ home edict. I have 8 JSX amps and just found this article,the part on grounding I found really interesting. Maybe Caesar should ask....what benefits more digital or analog from grounding?
"JSX also has an electrolytic grounding system that can take ground impedance to nearly zero, according to director of advanced technology Aaron Reiff. In a system the company recently installed, he measured "only a fraction of an ohm" resistance between system ground and earth ground, something that can take the perceived noise floor into true darkness. A visit to the company's lab is in the near future; look here for a follow-up report."
I wish JSX was still in business....looks like they were cutting edge to me.
