I was once fooled in a blind test when 2 exact avr's where used unannounced to me . amp a was a little louder than amp b but I really didn't notice it during the test and I choose amp a to be the better sounding amp only to find out it was the same amp just louder

i'm so laid back,i'm laid out

Harley vs a honda come on dude can you even level match these?

No matter how level matched they are Honda and Harley will not sound the same. If your amp sounds different than others you should be able to identify the amp that sounds different in an ABX test regardless of the location or speakers.
Do you know how ABX testing is done?

I used to think amps made a huge difference as well until I started buying amps and testing them myself. The biggest eye opener for me was picking up a pro amp - a QSC PLX 2402 and when it sounded just as good as everything else I had and had way more power, I realized the home consumer amp market is a money sink.

But components are important.
For example EMOTIVA has issues working with 220/240v European voltage. I still didn't found any explanation.

I would not even try to justify.

Some of us don't buy EMO because we choose not to. Simple as that. It doesn't matter what the reason is. We don't need to justify.

The "issue" is when you say the EMO doesn't sound as good. Stepping on toes here. wink.gif

Just say you don't like EMO and prefer Theta Digital (or other amps). End of story. biggrin.gif

So anyway getting back on topic, have you eliminated Klipsch and focused mainly on Revel or other high-end speakers? biggrin.gif

Yes, i don't want Klipsch, i prefer to go Revel or JBL. Goes more in what i really care about sound.
Not saying Klipsch is not good.
And as for Emotiva, i respect peopl who like Emotiva, i don't intend to speak anything bad about the brand, That issue i was talking about Emotiva also can confirm that info. But they say the problem is corrected.

The same direction I would take.

Funny how Harman (Revel, JBL, Mark Levinson, Lexicon) use ATI, and ATI owns Theta Digital.

So you liking Theta and Revel/JBL seems "logical". biggrin.gif

You must really be embarrassed to use that an AVR.

It should not be a big deal. You're right.

We all disagree about something. biggrin.gif

Too low end for your taste. I would think that you had something that was expensive and no better than the AVR.

Well, this was an amusing thread, I got it looking for the Revel F208 and Klipsch RF-II...

What was the final outcome? There has been some good buzz about the F208s and I am curious to what you did.

The final outcome was typical of threads like these, what can you expect when the OP is obviously trolling?
