What speakers are you using ba? And how good are the Dai-ichi speakers? May set ba sila specifically for an HT set-up? Any recommendations?
Just saw some B&W speakers this morning. Grabe, P96,000 for the whole HT set-up (similar to Woodie's).
Neo- Yes, I will give a bold statement here, Dai-Ichi speakers are good and they are sturdy. They also carry a lifetime warranty, others don't like them, and you may have heard complaints about such speakers, such as lack in balance,poor fidelity, crampped sounds etc.
I started with a JVC HT set-up, later transferred to a Wharfedale HT(one w/ those stands, not the valdus) and now have shifted gears to Dai-Ichi, I have the 513-c, and the recombinant 315??. I use the same subs as Vacummtubes but found them unappealing to my set-up so I placed back my JVC SW(only problem w/ this is that this came from the USA, thus I still have to use transformers.
My Wharfedale is now hooked to my Children's playroom, and it suits them well when they're playing their PS. The Daiichi SW complements the game mode of the Denon 1602 that my kids are used to.
Recently, I acquired the Dai-ichi 813, w/c others find discomfitting due to his size, you see it's a floor standing 3.5 ft. structure that will envelope a 35 sq. meter room. Now this I just employ as a dedicated audio speaker.
You might be wondering why am I into this, well simply for the very reason, that I want to patronize Philippine made products and I believe in them. Furthermore, I find the 813 as a cheap alternative to the Mission 717 series w/c causes a wallet busting Php 30,000.00. Do you want to know something trivial? the 813 won an award for an audiophile speakers way back in '95. The company also has been rated with an ISO9000.
Just think about it, if you have a 30T plus cost for an audio Sp, and you see another, that you'll want, it'll just make you drool all over, but if your gadget cost only in the low cost range, you can instanteneously say "here have mine, I'll get that".
Some rationale you might say.
Anyway, Neo, if your'e really interested in low cost HT set-up(you won't actually get the best from your speakers in an HT set-up, since you'll have to reconfigure the LFE's to your sub) Dai-Ichi has a Showroom at the 5th floor of the SM MegaMall.
Right now, I am thankful to the limitations of my taste, that led to my sensibilities with my acquisitions since it leaves me room to pursue my other hobbies.
