I have not compared. The 4B runs my L&R where the A31 does my center and surrounds. I know I need to do an AB comparison at some point. Of course it will be discounted because it won't be ABX

The A31 has a class A bias of around 7-8 watts meaning at idle up to this it will be only in class A operation. When it gets above this level it shifts to AB, to my understanding. The two channel...

Based on the power draw of my 4Bsst2 vs my Parasound Halo A31 I have to assume some notable class A bias. Also Thrangs note of significant heat from the 7Bsst2s vs the 600 watt Mac monos make me...

Bob,

Thanks! I was hoping this would work on an Ipod Classic as I have lossless on that but only IPod Touch Gen 4. My IPhone 5s has music compressed (256).

Being the minimum configuration for ATMOS is 5.x.2 do you think Krell would do that update? Don't see it going to 9 or 11 channels, not enough real estate for connections.

I auditioned Studio2s and 205/2 in my room and while I chose the 205/2s, I thought the Revels had the better highs. Granted, the 205/2s are pretty good also. The 205/2s and 202/2c worked better in...
