I agree. The Zamp Quattro to me is too underpowered so perhaps a New Classic version or as you suggest a new A43. However, the design exists for the A52 where the other options would need to be...

As far as I know it is not. However, with ATMOS, etc. there will be a new demand for 4+ ceiling speaker amps so perhaps Parasound should reconsider bringing back the A52.

I would recommend "C" above. The R500&R700 are stars of a very good R series and the R600 is preference of the centers.

rhale64L7,
Thanks for your response! I have been following this thread (and the SP3 thread) for quite some time. Now that DSD has been implemented the Foundation is even more desirable. I know...

Has anybody been able to AB the Foundation and the Bryston SP3? The SP3 has full 7.1 analog in but no DSD capacity. I am trying to decide on a upgrade, either swap my Integra DHC80.3 and forgo the...

I was always of the opinion that bi-amping would only be beneficial if one used like a tube amp for highs and mids and SS for bass. Then later I could see the clipping argument to protect the mid and...

^^^
For multichannel music, the CM8 option is the best. Stands won't be that cheap so that helps cut the difference.

With surrounds set to small, the LS50 will match the reference range the best. The R series is a bit laid back where the Reference is not and neither is the LS50. If you are thinking of adding the...

I will ask a couple sources but the new Reference line is so new not sure how quick an answer. My guess is the LS50s would go very well but must ask, multichannel music? If so only PCM or DSD? If...

I can't imagine that 802s would work there. A fellow AVS'r (TVMAN1991?) put 800D2s in a smaller space and then ended up selling for a loss if I am correct. I have a 13w x 16d x 9 h room that would...

Thanks! Do you prefer to have Audyssey on for music? If so which option setup? I like that the Marantz has the option to no correct L&R if I remember correct.

I have not compared. The 4B runs my L&R where the A31 does my center and surrounds. I know I need to do an AB comparison at some point. Of course it will be discounted because it won't be ABX

Using a Kil-o-watt meter the A31 runs around 60-70 watt if memory serves (which was much lower than expected) where the 4B was between 150-190 watts both at idle or low level music.

The A31 has a class A bias of around 7-8 watts meaning at idle up to this it will be only in class A operation. When it gets above this level it shifts to AB, to my understanding. The two channel...

Based on the power draw of my 4Bsst2 vs my Parasound Halo A31 I have to assume some notable class A bias. Also Thrangs note of significant heat from the 7Bsst2s vs the 600 watt Mac monos make me...

My ceiling surrounds are near the back corners pretty much right above my tower surrounds, I believe.
