Fairly certain you don't quite understand what the word "humble" means.

Thank you all for the nice comments, it makes watching movies at home truly enjoyable :) 

 

I have not been to the Movies in a long time except once to experience ATMOS, and was really disappointed due to distortion of the sound!

At one point did you own the Integra DHC-80.3?
If so, wondering how stereo sound (mp3, WAV, CDs) sounded compared to Classe processor - in regular stereo mode or with surround music modes (Dolby PL IIx, DTS Neo:6 etc).

thanks

I used to have the Integra Research RDC-7 very nice piece, then bought the Classé SSP-800 and never looked back :)

 

I got an 80.3 from Integra because my RDC-7 became unfixable and they just replaced it :)  I never used the Integra 80.3 in that room I have it in a smaller room with KEF LS50 speakers!
