The SP3 does not do DSD, only PCM. I can't answer for sure on clicks and pops but don't believe so. Only issue I observed is it takes a second or so to relock on a signal when changing. A bit...

Get the better speaker, you can always update amps later. XPA2 minimum for the 802s, although check with JDSmoothie on a Parasound A21.

You may be thinking of RichB who is updating from Salon, Studio and Voice to Salon2, Studio2 and Voice2. Must be rough!

I for one am extremely interested in your impressions. To be honest, if it is a wash I would go Yamaha for reliability but unless Yamaha did something to the analog section from the 5000 to the 5100...

That is great to hear about the HTM61 S2 center. During the S1 days the 685 or CMC2 seemed to be the only recommended options. I have three 685S1s in our great room setup (they are hidden). B&W...

I am very interested to see what the word will be on the 5100. I don't remember warm being used to describe the 5000 unless it was pared with the MX-A5000. I would have three (or four) amps if I go...

The new 800 series is being rolled out September 9th so one should be able to get a discount on the current generation. I could have got 20% off a few years back so I would use that as the minimum.

Are you asking as a live source from a PC or as a mechanism to rip CDs? I compared running ITunes through an HP laptop to Apple TV 1st Gen as compared to the CD from a Denon player and after a bunch...

On a different note, the A31 only pulls between 60-80 watts while running in class A where the A21 is supposed to pull about 150. The 4B pulls about 190 watts at idle/class A so the A21 would...

Bringing this back up in case anyone has done this comparison. I bought the A31 for my center and surrounds and when rearranging my rack I did a quick compare to the 4B. My initial impression was...

That they still use the ES9016 might imply they have done nothing to the analog output or the digital input sections, i. e. as you said, not much. With the 8802 they changed the DACs and the circuits...

First Sq is subjective and dependent upon other electronics and source material but the overall consensus, I believe, was the 8801 was the choice over the 5000. What has the 5100 done to move it up?

Yamaha CX-A5100 or Marantz 8802A

So the 5100 has not shipped yet but seriously interested in SQ comparisons. Not worried about room EQ but I sure others are.

I have been told (& experienced) that 80-90 Hz is a good crossover point for the LS50s. I am hoping an owner can confirm.

Granted, there is certainly not consensus on this, but I would think the majority would say the 8801 SQ was preferred (warmer?) but reliability is still Yamaha's strong suit. I have a Denon 4310...

I have a whole house surge protection from the power company (monthly fee) and my guess is no. Perhaps an EE can feed in.

I think your plan to use the A21 for L&R and the Class D for center and surrounds is a good one. I believe amps can make a difference but it is harder to tell on multichannel setups if L&R is good. I...

Not familiar with the XPA-7 but believe if going Emotiva then the XPA-2 for L&R with the x-4000 powering the rest would be the best. Just IMO but that would take the majority load for music.

If you added a good enough amp, yes. Several years back I tried adding Emotiva UPA-1 monos for L&R to my Onkyo TX-NR1008 driving XQ40s and XQ50c up front, B&W ceiling speaker for surround and IQ10s...
