By the way, do you have any DIY models of subwoofers with dual 8" drivers? Something for mid bass duty?

Can post pictures of your X-CS center speaker?

BTW, we are working on a really good amp in USA right now, it is 200w each channel, with optional bluetooth streaming and 5-band equalizer.

Preliminary test was mind blowing. It is a perfect match for Encore. Priced around USD500-600.

It is a integrated 2 channel amp, I reckon it would not come a with 12v trigger input. Furthermore, adding more module introduce more noise with additional circuit board.
It is a pure class D, oversized analog power high current amplifier.

I thought HiFi kaki don't like Class D?
Estimated date of release and price? drool.gif
Any plan of making a multichannel power amp for those who wanna pair it with your speakers in multichannel audio (HT setup)? icon_idea.gif

since you said bookshelf speaker are better than those 5.1 , why there still many well-known company still come up with the 5.1 speakers?  rclxub.gif

a good speaker is a good speaker. can be bookshelf/monitor or tower. put 5 good speakers and a sub, you get a good 5.1 system.

5.1 is a speaker setup term. you can't say 5.1 is lousy speaker. perhaps you're too accustomed with the small htib.

a speaker meant for music can be lousy at movies too. in this case, the speaker cannot be played loud enough (especially at reference level in a large room) and distort, although you feed it with lots of power.

so, a good speaker that can do everything well will not be cheap.

There are not many well-designed sealed center or MTM.

I have came across a few really good ones, and they are a few times more expensive but did not really have much differences.

But yours is MTM.
Any comment?
