The stands are made by IsoAcoustics. I got the medium ones ( # ISO-L8R155 ) from B&H Photovideo but you can also get them from Sweetwater or Musician's Friend. I just bought from B&H since I have an...

14/2 is fine for runs less than 75 feet, but you could wire with CL2/3 12/2 or even 10/2 IF you never want to fish wire again... unless more speakers are needed. I also ran my wires straight through...

The D1 is a decent DAC and it is extremely small. Other DACs I looked at after deciding on the DC-1 were Parasound Z-DAC, Schitt, and a couple of other internet-direct manufacturers. I heard the DC-1...

Possibly, at least for the support Denon gives it for audio streaming. I have no idea why Google/Android is sitting on their hands concerning USB Class 2 audio support. It has been a highly-requested...

Maybe it is just me, but I'm not impressed with what Genelec has to offer in their lower-tier products. Power specs are way too anemic for the price they are charging. Maybe they won't sound as flat...

IMO. I think the XPR-2 to power subs is a waste of a good amplifier. All you really need is a decent Class-D amp. The D-Sonic amps don't look too bad and they have " half width " versions for one and...

If you get an external amp, I would definitely get a 5-channel amp and connect the pre-outs Front L/R, Center, and Surround L/R to the amp. Since the RX-A3000 really doesn't do codecs above 7.x,...

An integrated amplifier and receiver, or AVR, is essentially similar names for the same type of gear. I'm only really familiar with Denon. I'd start looking at the AVR-E300 for 5.x or AVR-E400 for...

Very unlikely since the unit would need a complete DSP overhaul.That would be way more expensive than just adding an Oppo 103D for $600 that would handle 4K.
