Amazing prices - I would think this is too good to be true, but so many of you guys on here have mentioned them positively over the last three years that I think this is the way to go.

Matt, like I said I have the Marantz SR6009. But, if I had to do it all over again I think that I would have gone with this one:

http://www.accessories4less.com/make...airplay/1.html

The Denon 3100W is essentially the same as the Marantz SR6009, but quite a bit cheaper. Oh well, you live and learn right? I would highly consider the 3100W if I were YOU. But, the Yammie 1040 is a beast! Hard choice if YOU ask me. Good luck in making YOUR decision.

Cheers,

Phil

All of mine are in Cherry veneer except for the RTi8's. My LFE is being handled by a Hsu ULS-15 MK2. Soon, hope to have two ULS-15 MK2 subs. The RTi8's will be here Wednesday. Looking forward to it.

You will love the rti8s. They do have a break in period so they sound even better over time.

Thanks! I have heard the RTi8's many times. Of course, that was NOT in MY listening room. Very much agree that the RTi8's will sound better after some break in time. I have noticed that specifically on my RTi6's. Now, just have to open the RTi8's and get them set-up. The RTi6's are going on the side walls. My RTi4's, will be going up on my front wall for Height speakers. Soon, I will also have a second Hsu ULS-15 MK2 sub! Can't wait for that day.

Cheers,

Phil

I'm always lurking around here somewhere Jesse. How are things? I hope you're doing well. We're missing you on the dark side, or is it the bright side? I can't quite tell anymore.

Yup and you're the only one that can call me that Geoff

I kid I kid.....maybe!

Nice to know, Shawn! Well everything is doing quite good, thank you! I'm keeping it up and don't see any reason not to continue

lol, don't know if it's the dark or bright side either, but what I know is that I enjoy ( and enjoyed ) both sides, and miss you dudes too! Thing I know for sure though is that we need more upgrade pics in here haha

How is everything going on your side?

Probably not what you had in mind for an "upgrade", but I had posted some pics of our move a couple months ago, for those who missed it.


Stuff goes onto the moving truck a week before Thanksgiving...




Stuff arrives in Florida and goes into a storage locker (boxes of BD's to the right have been there since last spring)




More stuff goes into the storage locker...




In the meantime, we have been using a Monitor 60/CS10 setup in our condo til the truck arrived.


My winter project was to setup a pair of Rti12's and a new AVR...



The Rti12's are starting to break in and are sounding pretty good!

That's not a moving truck and storage, that's an audio store!!! I saw the sign, it read..."Rob's Audio! Finest audio equipment in town!"

My Denon has the same options IIRC, but you will never find me running my setup off it, even for a short time.

So while your proving it can be done, your scenario is only applicable to a very small percentage of enthusiasts.

And I remember that Crown amp spec's quite well. IIRC its 150 wpc and not very deep at all.
You are not going to smoke anything in 10minutes with 4 ohm speakers. The protection circuits would shutdown the amplifier section before causing a failure.
