I would suggest getting an inexpensive SPL meter. That could help you to set the levels on the speakers and sub.

Also, are your front speakers and center channel tweeters at ear height? Hard to tell from your that photo, but getting them up to ear height could certainly help if not.

With a $600-$700 budget, best to spend the least amount you can on the electronics and put more toward the speakers. With that in mind, I'd go for a Denon from A4L (I have bought a receiver from them...

It doesn't make sense to me to buy a $2500 amp to go with $1500 speakers. Better sound quality will come from $1000 on the amp and $2500 to $3000 on the speakers. Look into the Salk Songtowers and...

I have the CBM-170 SEs. Excellent speakers for the price. Three of the CBM-170 SEs would be great for your front soundstage. I believe you can rotate the tweeter to use it horizontally as a center...

A bluetooth headphone is not just a headphone. It has to have a wireless receiver, a DAC, and a built in headphone amp. For $30, you can do better if you can get by with a wired headphone.

Make sure you call them a few days earlier and make an appointment. It is their factory, and from what I understand, they are not able to necessarily accommodate drop in demo visits.

Worth trying distortion and degradation free first, then decide if you want that.

Just curious. Did the switch to hard drives happen before the move to lossless? Or did the move to lossless push the switch to hard drives? In other words, the new format made it necessary.

I would wonder if the hit you'll take on the difference between what you paid for them and what you can get like new will be worth the trouble to downgrade to another speaker?
