I have a Denon X-2000 AVR, rated at 95 watts at 8 ohms. It drives the Ultra bookshelves as loud as I could want them, -10 db.

A couple of times when Wonder Woman was under direct attack in the big battle, she looked absolutely gleeful. I got a kick out of that. I guess it stood out to me since the tone of the film was...

I had the exact same experience with three Ultra Bookshelves I bought from the SVS Outlet last month. I could not see any scratches or other signs of previous use when they arrived.

Joe Bonamassa | An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera House is my vote. He plays with 4 excellent musicians in a really classic venue. It's laid back compared to Joe's usual electric blues, which I...

I agree with the above. Where I was having a variety of failures regularly before, I think I have had one missed recording in the past three months. Unwelcome and unexplained, but a big improvement.
