I prefer Setting 2: Maximum control over Sub Level.

Since this setting makes sub-level independent of master volume, you can fine tune the sub-level to the exact spot you want it at. You might have to reach for the knob more often though

Thanx a million. But have you noticed the fronts drowning the sub at higher volumes at setting 2?

Not really. I set things so I barely heard the sub at all, so I haven't noticed. I haven't tried Setting 2 since about a couple of weeks after I installed the HU first in my old setup (Looooong back). Let me try Setting 1 tomorrow with the current setup and see

Congrats Frankie boy! 1 Lac+ ...wow! Time to persuade some of your patients to go in for gold fillings, eh?
But dude, your setup is awesome. If I had to upgrade my ICE ever, I'd take a similar route (though would stop well short of the 1L mark!!). Those Luccent compos in particular I would love to get my hands on. I love the Electras that I have currently, but from what I have heard, these are the next level (and you have validated that). Now if only a certain drunk hermit can help out....

Luccent are of a higher series than the electras.
However they have been discontinued . Atleast in India ( Not sure about outside)

Nope.Not sure. Might not divulge till the Luccents are sold. Cant afford to make a loss on anything now. Have seen a good deal somewhere, but the whole logistics is slightly difficult!

This isnt going to be one of the guess-which-component thread or frankmehta needs a...... thread where I play a game with everyone ;-) I'm not here to create sensations. Just being a little nifty and making sure I dont end up spending a lot on my quest to the ultimate SQ.

its just that it looks like I am getting a good deal on the product in question. But if it doesnt work out, I shall put everything to rest and enjoy my 'titilating sessions' with the Luccents like I've been doing daily!

Looks like someone's eyeing a rainbow at the end of a pot of gold!

A pot of gold is found at the end of every rainbow. Even that is just a mere Illusion:-)its more of a myth. Illusions are legends. And the Luccents are testimony to that fact. Just found something more legendary. But still working out the logistics:-)
