Why is this not the right thread? I'm looking at Denon, that's why I came here. And if you actually read my post, I said I research specs via the owner's manual and not what is published in an ad. ...

I use to recommend Zvox for the simple solution. I own one of their earlier models and was quite surprised. They were MDF cabinets and not plastic, and they had decent drivers and a large internal...

You don't think small or cheap ;). I like that. And the Rythmik is a terrific choice and will most likely destroy your room :eek:.

Between the great room, kitchen and breakfast area, you are looking at over 3,000 cu. ft. (with 8-foot high ceilings). Your sub will see that entire volume. While it puts you in the large room...
