    Portable Audio situation

    @psyph3r I dont think audition is really a possiblity here in India , in such scenarios i would be more willing to risk 2.5k against 10k iem blindly. That is where the chi-fi is really picking up and this has been validated by numerous reviewers/users as well. While some of the higher end chi-fi...

    Dolby Atmos or DTS X soundbar or speaker setup for netflix and prime

    I have hardly listened to any Dolby music tracks , there is sound coming from too many sides to really enjoy and deep dive into the song. For movies though a 5.1.2/4 is an altogether different experience and i dont think a stereo setup can quiet compete ( have a stereo setup in my room with a...

    Dolby Atmos or DTS X soundbar or speaker setup for netflix and prime

    @red dragon You need to run the room correction softwares on the AVR. These systems are not meant to be directly used out of the box with as is settings. There is no way a soundbar will sound better than a Dali Oberon 5.1 system in any kind of room. Join some audio forums and seek help , you...

    Dolby Atmos or DTS X soundbar or speaker setup for netflix and prime

    Nothing around 50k , you will need to extend a bit. You can get a Polk TL1600 at about 36k and any Denon X250BT at around 28k and that would extend to about 64k in total. This setup will keep you happy for atleast 2-3 years , i had started with this setup. I too started with a budget of 40k and...

    Dolby Atmos or DTS X soundbar or speaker setup for netflix and prime

    Always better to go for a dedicated speaker setup if you have the space and budget. A entry level AVR + Speaker budget system will set you back atleast by 70-75k. However its recommended to go in phases to ensure you get a setup you will like for few years to come. The phased approach would be...

    Portable Audio situation

    There are better options than the Fiio M5/M6 at similar/slightly higher price ranges, would suggest to lookup on www.headphonezone.in The Fiio daps (The M5/M6) are buggy and sluggish as compared to the alternatives from Hiby/Cayin. I had a fiio x5 iii which i sold off because it was very...

    My experience with Tirupati for Seasonic PSU RMA - whole story with screenshots!!!!

    The warranty was just a year and it conked off just before a month warranty expired. While i was lucky that it did not conk off post the warranty period, thats no reason to be happy about since i had to wait 3 months for a replacement/refund. Luckily i had a Asus Xonar DX to fallback to, else i...

    Yup Kaizen has been an exception for most of us. Have had positive experience twice with RAM related replacements. Same has been the case with Western Digital as well.

    My experience with Tirupati for Seasonic PSU RMA - whole story with screenshots!!!!

    I had a sad encounter with Rashi Peripherals in Bangalore. I had a Asus Essence STX sound card which stopped working out of the blue about a month before warranty expires , i went ahead and submitted the card. They made me wait around 2.5 hours at their office just to get the card submitted for...

    Buying a Demo tv

    To add to the above LG OLED TV also comes with Number of hours it has been kept running (not power on but the display) under Settings -> About TV, this can be reset only by LG and not by showroom officials.

    Buying a Demo tv

    Demo TVs usually do not have dynamic content running on them. It's either a single DTH channel running for 60% of the day or the demo content. In fact I was advised against it by a Croma sales professional itself and the first TV i had received had run for 16000 odd hours before even it was...

    Buying a Demo tv

    It happens with all OLED's not only LG. Sony uses panels supplied by LG for OLED manufacturing. QLED is totally different from OLED , QLED is more of a marketing term coined to make it sound like an OLED alternative whereas it is not. QLED is a LCD TV with much higher brightness and contrast...

    Buying a Demo tv

    OLED do have lot of burn-in issues. 10 year burn-in warranty is for all QLED TV's. I own a LG C7 and the initial two TVs i received direct on purchase had burn-in issues (Looks like warehouse had nicely watched some items and never bothered switching off the TV). There are lot of do's and donts...

    Buying a Demo tv

    Dont ever buy a demo OLED. There will be high chances of burn-in due to same content being played repeatedly. Any LCD variant should not be a problem.
