I recently replaced my aging Denon AV amp with a Onky TX NR626 and it was a great decision.

Right - for those interested.

The guy who helps me with my garden is coming tomorrow, so we’ll give it a go then.

As stated previously, I’m not terribly optimistic but it’s worth a try.

On a side note, scored an extra extension, as there was some confusion with the delivery surrounding which piece was supposed to be used to attach the auger.  The friendly guy told me I could keep the original and delivered the correct piece.

So now I have 7.5 meters of extensions, and the auger is 1 meter.  Thus a theoretical drilling depth of 8m.

I’ve identified two potential spots based on “flourishing trees”, but that might all be BS!

As requested by a member above, I’ll take a few photos of the process.

Open Talk / ONKYO AV RECIEVER HT-R548 NO SOUND
« Last post by Rea on Today at 07:22:19 AM »
Hi guys, I have a Jamo 5.1 Home Theater Speaker System - SW410e Active Subwoofer & 5 A 330 speakers, the Onkyo reciever is only used to run 3 of A 330 speakers however it doesn't play. If it happens I switch in on and it plays that'll be for a few minutes then it goes mute again then it'll automatically play again within minutes. I tried removing all speakers and pluging one and nothing happens. At first this was temporarily fixed by just switch it off for a few seconds and back on but now it only plays whenever it wants to. If there's any solution to this would be much appreciated Thank you

Have really been enjoying two local bands of late - Bottomless Coffee Band (multi instrumentalist folk rock duo who can play 12 instruments between them - in my view more folk than rock) whom I hope to see live over December. The other is Watershed with their new album Harbour.

That's the one.
It's difficult to see in most pics but the glass is not flat.

A very good speaker with lots of potential, a bit of playing around with position, might work very nicely corner loaded;  the port down fires, get it off the carpet on a plinth.  In my opinion they need an amp with a bit of power speed and punch. Very good imaging, and they certainly can disappear. Very good wide sound stage. Compression driver needs a bit more time to break in.

This is a very good horn speaker, why because it does not sound like a horn speaker, bet if you covered them most would not guess it was a horn. Yet it has all the dynamics and the live performance real music type of sound that a good horn can do like no other.  Not analytical or fatiguing.  Spent over three hours today listening to them.
Came away very impressed, I was not jumping tracks, but listening to the music;  always a good indication to me at least that a speaker is good.
Very well made and finished, and in my opinion a lot better sounding to me at least, than some hyped up speakers I have heard at two to three times the price.

They are two ways, I have always preferred a two way speaker as I am very sensitive to how a speaker integrates, this is not a problem with a good two way.

They get a big   :thumbs:  up from me, and I am very hard to please.  This is a no bull speaker, they just play great music.  Everything sounded good;  nothing can play a wind instrument like good a horn speaker, these certainly fit the bill.

Cant wait to hear them in Francios sound room when completed.

Thanks again Francios for letting me play with all your all kit;  I had a great time getting lost in the music, and that is the whole point is it not.
