Yeah just waiting for currency to get better or when KLIAV 2016 comes around, then get the bookshelves + another SB1000. Will be doing a 5.2.2 setup for the secondary bedroom.

Will post pics later once the whole room is set up properly, it's quite incomplete now that I also malu to show it off.

Main system is an A2040 with KEF Q series setup (4xQ100 + Q200 + SVS PB1000), looking to change it for an Arcam 850. Too bad it costs more than a kidney and liver added together.

Then again, I'm also looking forward to this year's Yamaha flagship A3060 (presumably) which will definitely be cheaper than the Arcam 850, though not as good.

Why you say that arcam is better ? What is the price for arcam?

Many reasons, but the most obvious ones are:

1) Arcam doesn't cheap out on components, it's quality through and through.
2) They do very little of that bs overated power per channel nonsense like rating them at 10% THD or some so called "JEITA" spec.
3) Full fat, no-nonsense Dirac Live which blows the crap out of YPAO RSC with 3D angle management and Audyssey XT32. It's the next best thing to a manual tweak via miniDSP.

Price I was quoted is about 28k, thanks to ah jib.

That said, I still like Yamaha. I think they're the best balance in terms of price-performance-reliability. That's why I still wouldn't mind having my main system using a Yamaha flagship, even if I know I'd prefer the Arcam.

Yes Yamaha definitely is price per performance. I totally don't think is worth the money for the arcam. Seriously I think Arcam is good for audio but when come to HT, I don't feel the same

I thought anything that is good for audio should be good for HT. However, not the other way round.

Not exactly. The way the hardware is design and build for different purposes can be good only in 1 thing but not the other

Hahaha... hope xx60 come out fast, so we can enjoy price cut on old models, especially at the AV show.

Yamaha had increase price about 20% for all models since last year end. Even the new model come out the price will be high

Which is better to have if I were to start 2 floor standing speaker (jbl arena 180 or sony ssc3) in a small room?
Yamaha A-S301 or RX-V479?

Listening to 95% music (ALAC file from my iphone) I have apple tv...

Home theatre sound is not important to me... But its ok to have... High quality audio for music is very important to me...

Advice please.  Thank you

In reality most people had limiTation of the size of the room or dimension of the room. So not much choice really.

after weeks of using the Yamaha A850 adventage series, I am very satisfied with the sound quality. the stereo speaker is B&W 602 S2 and the surround is yamaha A194.

digital music ss served by synology DS416 via cat 6 and video by dedicated HTPC with graphics card. control via android galaxy.

the downside is only the speaker terminals which is barely desktop grades.

What you mean the speaker terminal is barely desktop grade

Guys,  after few months of trial.  I finally got this resolved.  Just wanted to share with you how I resolved this issue.    At first I thought it's my Bluray player Bitstream setting.  I did as per what recommended, but my Bluray player still transmit PCM audio quality to my receiver (for DTS -HD Master bluray).  I tweaked the bitstream setting more than 10 times and tried on few Bluray discs,  it was still the same outcome. 

Yesterday,  I gave it another trial.    Careless me,  I observed the Incoming HDMI Video Resolution from my Bluray is only 480p.  I wondered why.  Then I went back to my Bluray player Video setting then only realized the setting was locked to 480p.    I immediately changed to Auto and tested.  The video signal changed back to 1080p.    I immediately replay the Bluray discs,  finally my receiver managed to detect the DTS-HD Master audio signal.   

Lesson learnt.  I was too focus on the Audio Setting without going through the Video Setting.    So the key take away is,  Audio and Video settings come hand in hand.  Im a happy man now.  My next aim is to get a better quality Front speakers (as my receiver comes with free NSP20 speakers).    cool2.gif

Should get front and center to be the same.
