H-9av or C9 ?

Post by wrstps » Sat Apr 16, 2011 7:59 am

What the difference? Is one better than the other?

I believe that the C-9 is to be used for stereo reproduction and the H-9av is more for home theater usage.
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

I can't remember either Wayne. I think BillD has both units.

No, I've never seen the inside of an H-9AV — would like to, though. C-9 is, according to Bob, along with the implementation in the C-1 (which is identical), the best hologram generator (and he's not sure why).
It should sound like it isn't there!
