I don't know...the AVR-4520CI had been the flagship receiver for the past two years and its MSRP was $2500. I don't know if I'd say that the 4520 had replaced the 5308, but it was the...

I'm so tempted to order some CDT-5800's from NFM because of their phenomenal pricing. In fact, I'd originally planned to go with in-ceiling speakers for Atmos top-middle speakers but it'd require...

I also noticed some minor QC issues with the RF-82IIs (and other made-in-China Klipsch speakers) here and there. It played on my OCD as well but I got over it fairly quickly. And I haven't noticed...

Using dual outputs is a non-starter for me (and, I suspect, for others). Since all of my equipment is in a closet, I want to be able to see my AVR's overlays on-screen which, of course, would...

Wow, I (obviously) didn't know that. Given that your relatively ancient Panasonic player can play it (I actually had that player before I replaced it with...wait for it...an Oppo), it is indeed crap...

I have a sneaking suspicion that NFM is probably getting out of the business of selling Klipsch speakers. Many other dealers are offering 20% off the Reference II line right now but the only other...

A) It's Expendables 3, so you're likely not missing much.
B) Oppo is fantastic about issuing firmware updates to fix minor issues like this, so if you're truly itching to watch Expendables...

If the RF-7II and RC-64II haven't gone on sale yet I doubt they will. However, you can always call the vendors listed earlier in this thread for discounts on those speakers as least as good as...

Get the Reference II at blowout prices now while you can. History suggests than any updates to the Reference II line will be minor and mainly cosmetic.

I'm surprised he didn't come down more than that. IIRC it seems like I usually got around 30-35% off of list. You could also try ASD but IME their prices have always been the same as SD's.
