  1. thanks Paul. because of you and my friend Tom G, i purchased a REL last year and then updated to a new S5 last month. it really is like having a new system in that the sound stage, ambience, presence, as well as deep and powerful bass, are all enhanced.

  2. Interesting stuff about ambient noise that surrounds us everywhere. I’m using Golden Ear Triton 1s for both 2 channel and HT (simply unplugging one cable and plugging in another). I have them set up to sound good with 2 channel, which for me, means NOT overbearing bass. Then, for HT, I let the receiver do it’s thing and have prodigious bass (when called for) for movies. I find it’s an elegant solution in a dual purpose room.

    P.S….I really enjoy all your vids. Thank you!

  3. Have to agree.I’m using twin JL Audio Fathom F112’s with a JL Audio CR1 crossover and a pair of ATC SCM40A’s and love them.
    What are your thoughts on using an external crossover such as the JL CR1?

  4. Good information. I have both my music system and video system in the same room, separate audio gear and speakers from the video gear and speakers. I have two subs in the video system. Can I use these subs for audio also or are there subs made specifically for audio that will work better? Thanks

    1. Subs aren’t specific to home theater or audio and can be interchanged easily. That said, like anything, there are better and worse subs out there. My favorites are REL, though there are likely others that are very good as well.
