I would want you to listen to it before you buy it Devarshi, so if any HIFI shop is around your place, please do make an effort and audition/hear it in person.

I have submitted my registration request - I have been through all the stages of the high end audio journey starting with Cadence, other tube amps, tube DACs and the whole shebang....I have now simplified my systems a great deal, but added a Sonos wifi layer to them all. More when I am able to post on the other forum!

Ah there we go & well good to know.
I guess we all move around in the circle with our own perception & understanding. I had once bought the Pro-ject ii Xperience TT and imported vinyls from Cali and before i could go in deeper, i realized that i dont really have the patience for Vinyl Rituals and hence sold the TT to one of my dear friend who is a happy owner of that wonderful TT now.

Recently resolved into one Active setup (active crossovers & speakers) in lieu of the 3 i had otherwise. Right now speakerless for the ones i have ordered are being built and should be possibly delivered around Dec/Jan.

Have sold all the preamps/power amps/speakers & have some wonderful Cardas cables for passive setups on sale alongwith a Deftech Supercube ii Subwoofer, but have kept my Cary Audio 306 Professional cdp which has the outboard dac that i use to render music that flows via comp into the M2Tech Evo & further into the Cary's DAC and also use the player to play the SACDs that have.

Having used the comp in chain and controlling it all via Ipad, it can make any man quite lazy & settled in the listening chair

My Samsung HT - TZ 315 home theater system was giving protect error for last six months. Finally I took it to a local repair guy who quoted 1400 INR for the repair job (DVD lens replacement also included). The unit should be back by Saturday.

Anyone else experienced this "PROTECT" malfunction with their systems?

I do understand how important it is to listen to the amp before buying. I can visit the manufacturers place.

Also how is Bolton? Bolton is available in Ahmedabad.

Sorry Bluevolt. That could be very specific issue for some sets. Korean brands are good till they can last. Thats the usual mindset of market about them.

Hi Dev, actually the only issue with brands like DAC, Bolton and others in the similar range is - consistency. One can usually never be sure that the cable you are picking now from a roll, would sound similar to the 'same' variant that you pick from its other roll. So hence, listening makes even a greater sense here. Do check it up, its a pretty decent brand for the money/range.

If my budget is limited to 25k -- 30k, and I have a Blu-ray player already, have a medium sized hall, have a media tank to be added in future, a pair of concealed wiring done from TV side to sofa wall (don't know the quality of wire builder used), and I am not an audiophile, what is my best option in home theater system?

Is Denon 1312XP the one?

you can audition some systems @ Pro FX (MG Road) and Vectors (Brigade Road), they are helpful. Choose the one you like and falls in your budget. I went to buy DENON HT and ended up buying Stereo instead :-)

You can try Onkyo HTS3400/3300, They have good reviews. Should cost you around 24-25K.

I have zeroed in on the following:

Denon 1312 and Polk Audio speakers(TSI300,OWM3 & CS10) from Profx - Rs. 70000

or

Yamaha 317 and Acoustimass 10 series 5.1 from Bose - Rs. 23000 + 58000

I am a average joe listening to normal stuff at home with family, not a great audio freak but want to choose from one of the above. Budget does not matter.

Please advice pros and cons of Bose with Yamaha.

TIA

I am considering getting a Yamaha V671 or V771. I would like to buy it from the grey market as I dont think it is worth paying 14.5% tax and some margin for just a one year warranty. If anyone knows where I can pick up one, will help! I know the areas in and around Patni Plaza in Chennai, but nothing else. Not sure if I can find something in Ritchie street.
Thanks!
