AV Rant #405: Phantom Receiver

October 21st, 2014

SVS released a new cylinder subwoofer and Jay wants to know what we think (LINK). Oh, and some new speakers too. Sammy want our take on the $330k a pair Tesseract speakers (LINK). Apparently, our race car driver Paul has to crash the AV Rant car in order to win (LINK). Works for us but stay safe Paul! Michael shares a story, asks for some of ours, and tells us about TVMobili – another HTPC front end (LINK). Tony tells us about his in-wall speakers and back boxes, Gaylen still hasn’t replaced his broken Onkyo, and David has a story about an AV Rant fan that Tom really wants to believe. Gary has a question about creating realistic audio and is interested in the new Pioneer Atmos receivers. Stephen has a couple of questions about folded ribbon tweeters, Nathan shared an article about 4k that has Rob almost saying something negative about another person (LINK), and Rohan needs some subwoofer buying advice. Thanks for listening. Check out our Facebook Page. Click here for our YouTube channel where you can see the recordings of our show videos.

    found some more oddly shaped speakers for us to consider.

    The Avalon Tesseract speakers cost $330,000/pair. Seems a shame they couldn’t afford a decent web designer:

    wanted to know what we’d make of this blog post from the Home Cinema Guru. In short, we did not agree:
