Regarding subs to add to Reference, JL Audio would be the best choice to integrate for music from what I've been able to glean.

I have only heard the R700s, but have also heard that the R500s may be the sweet spot of the line with the R700s very close. R series being very good overall.

Good point, but I wonder how many 105 owners use the multichannel analog outs versus using analog out for stereo and HDMI for multichannel?

If by chance the Sonica DAC is equivalent in SQ to the 205, would one not be better with a Sonica and 203 if the Sonica has more features? I love choices.

I wonder how the new Sonica DAC will compare to the upcoming 205? Will they be the same except the 205 includes the disk player?

Just a thought, but if your SACD collection isn't growing, one option would be to purchase a used BDP-103, use it to rip your SACD collection, and then resell it. You would most likely be able to...

Just for clarification, B&W owns Classe' and is a distributor for Rotel, they are at not major owners of Rotel. At least to my knowledge.

First question, when you say it is driving 6 channels are you referencing the sub as the sixth? If so, it is likely a powered sub and won't draw on the power amp section. Did you bump the center 1-2...

A21 is around 10 w and the A31 about 7-8 w of class A before the transition if memory serves. There are design differences and the A21 is reported to be slightly better than the A31/51.

I own an A31 and believe it should sound like the A51 as designs are similar. I have read the A21 is slightly better than the A31/51, not significantly, but all things are relative.

Your comment makes me wonder if a 202/2C or 204/2C might be a better match for my 107/2s that the R600C I'm now using. The 107/2s seem to have a greater sense of transparency than the R600C, perhaps...

I would hope Yamaha puts in the effort for SQ, to be able to compete with the 8802A and XMC1 for music. Was a Yamaha fan in the past, would like to be again.
