finaly took the plunge and bought sch870 from j l its ariving tues will post thoughs on it tomorow
it looks smart .sounds very good.no optical conections but you cant expect everything for £400
dvds tried for the sound picture etc.swat toy story 2 blade 2 kill bill
the base at the start of toy story2 is awsome where buzz comes in on his jetpack then straight away on to some treble and mid with the lazers and voices picture is superb as well
lots of gun shots etc in swat make you think people r hiding behind the sofa
it suprised me how quick and responsive the system is
some very dark sceenes in blade 2 handled very well picture wise by the player no green tinges or anything like that just well detailed picture.
kill bil in the snow scene almost makes you feel there
cds tried/ l.f.o(old dance tune)/ double 99 rip grove/ chicane saltwater/blue monday/eurithmics rain/
the system realy kicks out some quality music for £400 loads of base decent treble and midrange and hey the wife even likes it
you can change just about anything on it via the menu (makes a change )
tried mp3/jpegs/mpegs/dvd-r(even burnt at *8 ) played no probs
main use is dvds music very happy
agreed - a good system.
i like the choice of lfo rooney - must dig that tune out myself and find out what the sub does with it!
can u remeber what the o stands for in l.f.o
l (low) f(freuqency ( ?) is it omulation
its Low Frequency Oscillation. have you got theier LP/CD? it remains classic even today.
heres a question - do you think the sub will be alright on its side? i need it to lurk under a coffe table if the mrs is to be kept happy. sounds ok - i was just wondering about heat dissaption that sort of thing.
should be ok the air from the woofer would keep it cool i guess
lfo original 12 inch
Just wondering..... does the scht870 play AVI movies and has it got any component inputs?
um..dont know - will test AVI if i get chance.
inputs x 3 audio stereo. no digital inputs though (shame)
In the process of purchasing the SC-HT870, any advice? and does anyone know where i can pick the system up cheap - the best i've got so far is £349 from: http://www.soundandvisiononline.com/moreinfo/index.asp?product_id=4162
Also can someone please tell me if the speaker stands come with a single pole or a twin pole?
its a double pole that can be extended
