Emotiva Pro airmotiv4 Loudspeakers Review - Page 14

post #196 of 410

oh crap. looks like there is a very slight bit of noise at any level. maybe i shouldn't be using the stock rca cables that came with the audinst lol.

 

but for all my uses, it has a black background.  the hiss is barely perceptible until i put my ear to within a few inches of the speaker.

Just bit the bullet and ordered the 5s to feed from a g-d NFB 17.2 that's on it's way as well, hoping they'll fill my medium sized living room with enough sound to "feel right" with the optoma HD33 projector...man cave could be complete (but i'm guessing i'll have to get a nice sub eventually)

 

I'll post my thoughts when they arrive :)

I'm selling my Emotiva Airmotiv 4 speakers for financial reasons. They are in working condition and have only been used for a couple of months. They're practically like new with the original box, cables, and everything that came with it. There's no scratches on it, or any signs of wear. Price includes shipping and paypal fees. Here's the for-sale thread.

most of the time hiss from speakers or tube amps are caused by the power, I was using Musical Paradise MP302 MK2, it was hissing CRAZILY LOUD, but then I unplugged my laptop power supply from the mains of my room, PROBLEM SOLVED.

I must say though they're making wonderful paperweights/decorative boxes as I wait on my NFB 17.2 to arrive popcorn.gif

At $350/$450, I'm thinking about upgrading to the 4's or 5's from my Audioengine A5. But is the difference worth it? I'd want a substantial improvement.

 

And is the only big improvement in bigger woofer size better, lower lows?

i had a direct comparison at my house between my pair of airmotiv 4s and my friend's audioengine 5+s. the emotivas blew them away, especially in bass response, the audioengines just roll off the bass wayyy too soon and too steep compared to the airmotivs. strange, considering the audioengines have a half inch bigger woofer on my emotivas.  if you're on a budget like me, go for the 4s. if not and you want deeper bass, the bigger the cone is better (up to a point).

Still no side to side comparisons with the Adam A5x? I really want to buy new speakers but I can't audition any one of them..

Sometimes it's not the inches, it's what you do with them that counts.

I was wondering how the Pro 6s compare to KRK's Rokit RP10-3s considering that they make use of a dedicated subwoofer and the Emotivas don't. Aside from the 10Hz bass difference in extension, does anyone think the Emotivas can outperform the KRKs in bass response? Just curious.
