Hey Sceleratus, 

 

Any reason why you went with Crestron over RTI?  I find that Crestron is very hard to program/not user friendly.  RTI can all be done by the user instead of having to hire someone to program everything.

You are correct.  12 years ago I hadn't heard of RTI.  I programmed all of the Lutron and some of the Crestron myself.  A couple years ago I eliminated Crestron for AV control for that very reason.  I went to RedEye and controlled via my iPad and iPhone.  It worked well.  Now RedEye is BK.  So I'll figure out it's replacement.  I'm looking for an open product that I can purchase and implement myself.  It's not high on my priority list.

 

I'm going to pull the last two Crestron touch pads and put in Lutron pads.

Do you have any specific information on this cable? I can't find a description anywhere of the materials used. :confused:

post #281 of 455

The geometry is called "Galactic Geometry" and is completely unique among any cable on the market.  The wires used in each Reference cable are coaxial and standard ultra high purity silver plated copper (both 22 awg. conductor and shield) American-made wire with PTFE Teflon extrusion.”

Man, this setup is AWESOME!  You'd be hard pressed to find a better sounding HD800 rig (or just in general dynamic rig), IMO.  I at one point auditioned the P-1 with my D2 and HD800 and it was nothing short of amazing!  I kept looking for a 110V P-1 unit but I could never find one and eventually went stat.
