I started out with Performa monitors. My previous rooms, price, and WAF were all factors in going to monitors. When I moved and put the setup in a larger room the monitors seemed to lack something. ...

The question I would ask you is what are you looking to get out of your pre-pro? The tech behind pre-pros changes rapidly so no matter what they always get trumped 2, 4, 6, 8 years down the road. ...

I'm very open to being wrong. However you will note that different Revel models have distinctively different "bars" in front of the tweeters. The Revel F32 and F52 as well as the C32 and C52 have...

I'm assuming you mean the app on the Zt60. I don't use the apps on the TV as the UI and overall experience is better with AppleTV and Roku. You're talking Amazon prime so Roku is more relevant. ...
