Yep. Understand all that. Was just pointing out that the cable I use is flexible. High strand count means more flexibility, not improvement in sound. KnuKonceptz Kable is more expensive than...

You won't be able to do anything with them unless you have something that can actually read the discs. Cheaper to sell them and buy the BD versions. I couldn't even sell my Toshiba player and the...

I use KnuKonceptz CL3 Kable. Their 10 gauge wire can make a loop 1.5" in diameter. I don't have their 12 gauge wire, but I suspect it will work better than Monoprice wire since it is very high strand...

Purely speculation on my part based on current and past Denon receivers. The X7200W/WA gave up the more efficient toroid for an E&I and the UL plate on the receiver states 780 watts. Even if the...

I think the UPA-200 would be a little wasted on running the Atmos speakers. I doubt the x7200 would deliver more than 50-60 watts/channel with all 9 driven. It wouldn't hurt to hook up the UPA-200 to...

I'm about as close to 3:1 ratio as one can get. I actually picked my screen size based on how far I sit from the set. I'm 109" out from a 73" set. I'm going to get a slightly larger UHD set ( 75" is...

That's a HUGE case, so any 970 should fit except maybe the ones with three fans on them. If you want a small card, then look at the ITX versions. I have the Asus 970 ITX. My system is a Silverstone...

If these are going to be connected to a computer ( or console ) as a primary source, then I would definitely go for the simplest solution and get a pair of active speakers. The M-Audio AV-40 fit into...

I'd upgrade to Polk or KEF or something, even Parts Express Dayton speakers are better than Pyle. They aren't called Pyle for nothing.

How about the Emotiva UMC-200 pre-amp to go with the XPA-200? A simple pre-pro should be better than an AVR in a similar price range but the A4L deals are hard to beat for a top-tier AVR. The pair...

Keep them. Someone will have to pry my BP7000's from my cold, dead hands. DefTech these days is more focused on making things small and unobtrusive.

An Oppo BDP-103/103D would probably work in a pinch but that just adds another device into your media chain. I'd go this route if media-serving, streaming, and disc playback are your only goals while...
