It is such a horrible photo composition-wise that just about any colors the viewer sees would be correct. Looks like it was taken on a digital camera circa 1998 and looks like a lot of stuff that I...

I think Parasound has their Z line ( zDac + zAmp ) but that is a two-box solution. I was looking to upgrade my 2.1 PC-based setup last year and ultimately went with Emotiva since their CS is...

The Teac A-H01 is the only thing that comes to mind as far as integrated amp and DAC, but it is rather weak at 22w x 2 at 8 Ohms.

I don't think the 960 will be that much weaker than the 760. Both core and memory clocks are higher but that might not be enough to make up for the loss of 128 cores and 32 TMUs. I'm pretty sure...

More/different room treatments. This is going to have the most impact for under $500.

I have the DC-1 DAC.

You'll need a subwoofer that has an active crossover. Most decent subs do. SVS subs have adjustable active crossovers, so that is the brand I went with. Both the XLR and RCA...

Not sure how that would work, actually. I have bi-poles up front, so I get reflections from the front. You wouldn't have that with direct-radiating and that might make the back surrounds stand out....

What have you done with your 5308ci? I'm at a crossroads now on deciding whether to list my upgraded 5308ci on eBay and wait a few months for news on the DTS:X issue or hold onto it for another 9...

I'll be using a similar setting except I also have Top Middle speakers as well as Front and Rear Height.

Hopefully, there are Height Layout settings for Front Height + Top Middle if I find that...

Then get the SM 450 in the link above for $250 a pair AND plan on adding a better sub later on. I'd recommend the SVS SB1000 sub at $500 shipped new. Then again, you are going to use a receiver,...

Def Tech DO inflate their specs somewhat, especially concerning bass fall-off. I have not directly compared the JBL 530 against my SM 55's. All I can comment on is the SM 55's. I think having the...

They appear to be Sansui but they don't look like any Sansui speakers I have ever seen. They made some pretty decent stuff back in the 1970's, so these might be from the 1980's or maybe White Van...

I did direct radiating speakers for my side surrounds and in-wall bi-pole for the back surrounds with good results. I put the in-walls about 56" apart since my seating is about 18" from the back...

Amplification in today's receivers leave a lot to be desired. It is getting to the point where separates with a 100 WpC amp would be hands-down better than an AVR. Problem is that it costs A LOT to...

I seriously doubt it does unless the adapter is really cheap and doesn't make a good connection. My Sennheiser HD 650's came with a 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter that I use with my DAC. I think a good...

Emotiva XPR-5... 400w x 5 into 8 Ohms. Feeds the BP7000's, CLR3000, and a pair of JBL L7. Only time I've seen the meters on the XPR-5 hit peak on Center and Surrounds was on Edge of Tomorrow. The JBL...

Not really a whole lot you can check without connecting it up to a powered source. You can plug it in to check the amp for the woofer and do a physical inspection of the driver cones. It takes a lot...

XDA-2 is about the closest thing to the DC-1 and are very similar sonically. Only thing you are missing is the additional input options and the smaller form-factor. I almost went with the XDA-2...

The TV stand is the stock Mitsubishi stand made to match their 65" DLP TV sets. Can't tell from the photo but both the XPR-5 and Denon AVR stick out about 2 inches because I wanted a little room in...
