It's probably a lot quieter here because Emotiva has its own forum board. Most other Emotiva products appear quiet here as well.

The marantz 7702 is a compelling alternative, mainly because it's...

I don't see anything really gained by selling the 1038Be. I heard them at a dealer and they were nothing short of amazing.

Perhaps like you said upgrading the integrated amp may be a better path.

Yes I have a console so I need a horizontal center channel. I wonder how much of a step down it is though...same material drivers, similar designs.

I do agree the hassle is a deterrent, but it...

Natural sound got it!

If the definition of timbre is what you described then I don't think you are using the word correctly but it's neither here nor there.

You are looking at the F208? ...

This was my first impression as well after my 1st Dirac run, because that's exactly how it sounded.

I've been thru 5 measurements and the last 3 sounded consistently great. The last measurement...

I personally felt like Revel did that on purpose to distinguish the two models more because the sound was so close. The F32 has those controls so why not put them on the F206. Oh well, their choice....

Rich, I also prefer the treble on my F208 set to -1. It's a bummer that the F206 doesn't have this feature because it does make a difference.

So, you have a pretty sizable budget. $18,000 + $5000 + $2000 + 2000 = $27,000 retail.

My own personal opinion and it's my own, if I had that budget - cancel the F208.

Locate and purchase 4...
