Hi All,

I finally pulled the trigger on Polk + Denon. It got delivered today, waiting for installation
Just one quick question: ProFX gave me Polk S10e instead of S10. I looked at the specs and didn’t see any differences. Is there any?
Congrats.

Can you share the model details of your purchase?

To my knowledge, the signature E series is for the UK market. No spec change except the blacked out center of the woofer.

Enjoy your home theatre and do share some pics.

Thanks :)

Sure, it's:

Denon X1400H AVR
Polk RTi A1 - 2nos
Polk S10 - 2nos
Polk DSW PRO 440 WI
Polk CSI A4

Will post the pics post installation. I did have a question about length of Denon AVR power cord. I tried looking up online but didn't get anything. My UPS is quite far away from where I plan to put the AVR. If it's too short, can I change it? Also, is UPS a must or Belkin Spike Guard should be enough?

I'm currently wondering the same. I did go through few threads and got the impression that double conversion online UPS is the best. APC has few models which I'm currently looking into. If you're interested, we can approach APC for discounted pricing.

I already have an APC 1KVA online UPS, but it's not double conversion. Also, I have my tv and PS4 connected to it, not sure if it will support the AVR too? Is UPS a must? I see a 2kva one at 32k on APC site: https://apc.estorewale.com/product/srv2kl-in/?psrid=wtbs_5dbc597da9abda3bcdce7c25

Don't want to spend that amount if it can be avoided. I have ordered this for now: https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B01994DUMW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . Will it do the job?

UPS is not a 'must' but is preferred to keep the music going :) Double conversion online UPS will separate the components from mains so that there's zero risk of damage and minimal noise in the system.

So you have two UPSs now?

Build a 3.0 first, then add rears and then add a sub last step if required. Marantz is a good choice and Pioneer. Floor standers should be preferred. Don't worry about room size. None of us are professional studio guys. It's okay. It'll still sound amazing. If any problem u can ask for acoustics troubleshooting here again

How are you liking the sound ?

The RTi A1s require some run in.
Trying keeping some music playing at mid volume all day for a few days.

I have actually started another thread around this. Manual setup was mindblowing and I was loving it. However, in certain sections, sound was getting too loud. Then I tried Audyseey and now that issue is gone but it sounds bad now. Almost like TV speakers. Dynamics are compressed.
