It sounds great, Kevin… thanks! Ya know, I did yet another ARC test, this time with my large glass coffee table rolled out of the way, away from any speakers (those nasty reflections, ya know). And...

FYI, reran Anthem ARC with both ports open in all three CB-8s (HB-1 MK2 surrounds unchanged, of course) and got the following results (though I certainly don’t know what they mean, lol). All...

Thanks, Kevin. I’m running the CCB-8s with ONE of the two ports plugged. So I’m guessing that counts as ported, not sealed. Should I have run the Anthem software with the speakers sealed...

Anthem ARC vs Hsu recommendations…

Hey everyone, I’m running three CCB-8s up front (L/C/R) and two HB-1 MK2s as surrounds (along with a ULS 15-MK2 sub). And they sound truly wonderful! Now, I just bought an Anthem MRX 520 AVR...

CCB-8: 80Hz subwoofer cutoff?

Hey there, I’m really enjoying my new CCB-8 speakers. Per instructions, I set the cutoff to sub to 80hz and that works just fine. That said, I’m just curious; with their larger 8” woofers, why does...

Worth upgrading from VTF-2 MK4 to MK5?

Well... is it? And, aside from cabinet finish, is the MK4 better than the newer MK5 in any way? I’m considering this upgrade, but in terms of performance, are the differences very slight?

Thanks, Kevin, temporarily moving the center speaker atop the shelf if a great idea. Duh! And it's good to know the difference in sound quality will probably be just incremental.

Worth raising center channel?

I have my HC-1 MK2 speaker inside my cabinet on the top shelf, so that it sits just below the top of the cabinet, on which sits my plasma TV (see pix). The HC-1 one has wedges beneath it so that it's...

Lots of toe-in, but how much, exactly?

How much toe-in is recommended for HB-1 MK2s? I know, I know… experiment. That said, Hsu suggests more toe-in than is typical, and most reviews affirm this. But how much, exactly?

My speakers...

I think the decision to upgrade to 7.1 depends on a) what kind of films do you mostly watch, and b) how much of a perfectionist you are.

I don't watch a lot of fantasy/sci-fi/action/adventure, which...

VTF tuning for movies vs music…

I have the VTF-2 MK4 subwoofer, and I use it for, hmm, maybe 70% film and 30% music. The music is virtually all classical, jazz, opera and theater music - hardly any rock, metal or anything else with...

Sub working properly?

My VTF 2 Mk 2 certainly works, but is there a simple test to know if it's working properly? I ask because just barely adjusting the volume control results in sudden, not-subtle changes in volume.

Surround speaker alternatives?

I'm quite happy my HB-1 and HC-1 Mk 2 speakers. (I finally bought a Panasonic plasma to replace my Sony KD-34XBR960; the HC-1 Mk2 has been sitting in its box for three years awaiting a non-CRT screen...
