The only correct thing you've stated, is you need pre-outs. There is no need for a balanced/differential signal in almost all domestic applications and you will get no benefit from adding a cheap...

Neo 3.5 has a recommended cut off of 2k5/3rd order. This isn't likely to end happily.

You stated it was a characteristic of ALL (your emphasis) class D amplifiers. My experience shows that it is not, in amps costing from as little as $20 to complete retail units that are well into 4...

Absolute bunkum. There is nothing in the design of class D amplifiers that inherently means they're noisy. I have several modules (41Hz, Hypex, LC Audio etc) and complete manufacturer units that all...

I'm an atheist, but have no problem with religious music providing I find it in some way enjoyable because of the composition and performance. This is typically classical, blues, gospel and soul.

There's nothing wrong with the sound in my system with LSR305s. I simply use unbalanced RCA to XLR cables. There is no need for extra level, nor differential signals.

Good suggestion -- if you want to waste money on poor performance.

Why not add a larger, more capable pair of speakers to the HT system? You're just wasting money on additional componentry for a separate 2ch system.
