Of everything mentioned here, I would go with the A1060 because I like the Sabre SAC.

For less money though, I would consider going with the Emotiva MC-700 and A-150 (or A-300) and going full...

As one of the first people on here to take possession of their CX-A5100, Yamaha has earned me as a repeat customer. 3 years of major updates? That seems unheard of these days. All that for a unit...

This was right. Speakers were upside down in the box.

So, I took off work yesterday. First, I built 6 shelves to put behind the listening area and moved the RB-81ii's there as back surrounds. I...

So, I'm not sure what day my RF-7 will be here. Does anybody think it would be weird to put a subwoofer on top of one of them?

I wish the L12 or L22 were available with the A370 or H600 amp designs. I don't want the class-D amp, but need the compact size.

Would 200wpc from a Monolith7 power RF-7 ii's well enough? I would probably set them to "Large" so they would handle their own bass.

So, I just got the 40in version of this to use as a PC monitor. It came with version 1422. Should I avoid updating? I saw people talking about lag a few pages back with newer versions?
