Hi I would like to Get your expert opinion on best Speaker System 5.1 for my Pioneer Elite 54 choices are PSB image t4 /Klipsch Rf35 rb 35 rc 35/Axiom 60 mti22 vp150 / Monitor Audio Bronze / B&w 600 series/ Paradigm I am looking to spend 2500 cad or 2000 usd on this project so I would appreciate your recommendations and please explain the positive and negative of each when you explain about them thanks
Of what you mentioned the MA's are the best match with Elite. Klipsch are very bright and fatiquing while the others are too laid back,except the Axiom which I cannot comment on as I have not heard them. Axiom gets very good comments on this forum however. I have an Elite/MA Silver system and it's great. Congratulations on your purchase of the very fine Elite 54.
i did go down local hifi store and found B&W 600 more to my liking now one thing the Pioneer Elite is giving me greif to set up all i seem to get out of it is stero sound none of 5.1 surround modes seem to work or i am not able to get into these thanks
Did you follow the auto setup instructions in the owners manual? Do you have everything hooked up correctly including the s-video out to your tv in order to use the on screen menu? To get into surround modes all you have to do is push the movie or music button on the left side and the push enter when you reach the mode you want. [Use THX mode for movies]. I prefer to set up my speaker level myself with a sound level meter but if you don't have one yet use the auto setup feature. If your dealer can't help you call Pioneer at 800-pioneer.
yes i did that i do not seem to find the dolby or dts modes pink sound plays though thanks
baldev, sounds like you have to turn on your dts and dolby on your dvd player. That is what i forgot to do. Give that a try and you should get everything up and running
Hi Guys i finally figured it out it was a classic case of RTFM the famous complicated setup of Pioneer Elite series got me it seemed that i did not have 7.1 only 5.1 so i did not turn the rear back surrounds on and this prevented the actual surrounds and centre to not work what a f**king pain in the butt and stupid thing to do so now i have switched 7.1 and using 5.1 seems to work great
Glad I could help and enjoy your wonderful Elite. Besides the great sound quality it just looks f..king great in your rack doesn't it? Hope you have many years of happy listening with your Elite/B&W combo.
