Emotiva and Rotel are both made in China and Outlaw is made in California by ATI. I think the equivalent ATI series is the 2000 series. I would definitely consider a 7-channel amp now if there is...

I'd go with the $70 set, but I doubt even those will be good for that type of music. There are only one or two reviews vs. 10s or 100s on the Logitech and Creative speakers. TBO. ALL of these " PC "...

I'd go the PC+Emulator route since that will open up PC games as well, like the Left 4 Dead series. Plenty of options to deal with zombies in those games, like chain saw, gasoline, cricket bat, and...

I'd go with the JBL at that $225 price. Emotiva has a sale on their Airmotiv powered monitors but you'd have to get their 5s at $400 to exceed the JBLs power output but having the very accurate X-ART...

I don't think you need a specific type of speakers for Atmos unless you are going to get those modules that sit on top of regular speakers. I'm going to use a regular pair of in-wall speakers, but I...

I've always looked at the problem this way. You can either have small, single driver speakers OR good sound, but you can't have both. I think most folks on AVS would agree that Bose speakers are...

I think the DAC in the Oppo is fine in a setting that will play both 2-channel and multi-channel audio. My Oppo 103 sounds fine when I push DSD and high-res over the network. I do have an Emotiva...
