I don't think it's justifying an inferior format (and there are plenty who'd make the case that it's a *superior* format. But not everyone experiences things the same way. I think, in general,...

I think the ritual is something people who grew up with vinyl would appreciate more than younger people who grew up with CD's, MP3's and streaming.

I've got an RX-V990 that sounds great in 2-channel mode and, like you, I also listen to music more than surround sound movies.

I find myself predisposed towards Yamaha and Marantz having both brands and being satisfied with my experience with both.

The thing is, on my two amps, I haven't really noticed any significant loosening of the binding posts. Maybe tighten them once a year or so? I'd attribute it as much to vibration as heat/cool cycle...

So I'm guessing from your two comments that...
