If I had to move to Windows 10 which I don't, I would just use JRiver for cablecard and OTA. I don't watch protected content. But until such time as WMC on Win 7 is no longer viable.. I will continue...

I guess there is old stock and then there is really old stock. I have no way to guess the timeframes on your preamp. It sounds like this dealer knew much more than they were saying. Kind of like...

Windows mixer perhaps. I use JRiver and Flac. Color me skeptical on PCM from Oppo being better than PCM from a PC. No apple guy so I can't begin to guess what tricky business is in their file...

I use an HP all in one with JRiver MC. This particular PC has no hdmi port. I gave up on streaming though the network port on the X4000 Denon. At least with JRiver that doesn't work well. The analog...

I wonder how the Philharmonic Audio Affordable Accuracy versions of the FS-52s would compare to the Elite Speakers. Very likely a much closer comparison.

I have about 8500 hours on my 92840 and am on my 4th lamp. If you are like me and of the opinion that the 92" sets are just barely bright enough at best, you will want to change the lamp sooner...

What stand-mount/bookshelves provide is a lower bill of materials and simpler design requirement. Sure, like everyone else here, I can site examples where a tower...
