Here is my set up:
Room dimensions 19X16
Sony 46 XBR4
Blu-Ray BDP S350
Onkyo Receiver TX-SR 606
Infinity Speakers TSS-750
HD Directv HR21
I am able to get good sound especially the HD sounds of Dolby TRue HD and DTS Master with movies which is my main goal. The question I have is if I could do one upgrade a year, which one shall I start with. BTW, The Onkyo and Blu-ray are new. Sometimes I wonder if I should have bought a better receiver.
Let me tell you a story, when killing time i went to a Best Buy Audio room, they demonstrated Paradigm Speakers (2K or more) and a Denon receiver - I don't remember the model number but it was close to 1 K.
Then, they put The Eagles DVD , Hell Freezes Over, and I was blown away at the seperation of sounds. ONe intrutment begins at the right , then the one on left , then all of sudden , from the back, the crowd and applause begins in rear speakers and the seperation was amazing and clear.
So, I went out and purchase Hell Freezes over, and I got the first sounds of music coming out of left and then seconds later, right speakers but the crowd applause noise is diffuse, it doesn't come from the back , is not clean or distinctive.
Can I optimize my settings to get the clean separations? The Eagles DVD is not Blu-ray is dolby digital. I don't know if that matters.
And If I upgraded, which one should I do? Thanks in advance.
