I'm running my SB-2000 at about 11 o'clock and sometimes that is a bit too much. I'm feeding my PC audio through either USB ( UAC Class 2 ) or TosLink to an Emotiva DAC. My speakers are Emotiva...

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...

Another option is to get a pair of Emotiva Airmotiv powered studio monitors and pair them with an SVS subwoofer. The SVS Prime satellites would be about as large as the Airmotiv 4s and are powered 50...

If you are in CRP between the CW tower and Rainbow Mountain, then getting that antenna outdoors and high should get you a signal. I'm on County Line Road and CW comes in at 70% on the " weak " side...

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.

I used to use the RS tube tester and buy tubes all the time along with breadboard, resistors, capacitors, etc. Now if I want electronic parts, I have to buy more than I'll use from Mouser. RS was the...

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...

I have the Emotiva DC-1 DAC, Stealth 6 speakers, and an SVS SB-2000 sub for my 2.1 PC-based system. Can't do much better than that for a 2.1 system; however, there are diminishing returns as more...

I also think a soundbar, like the Zvox, is the way to go here. Surround sound is about immersion rather than boosting dialog. The Zvox is simple to set up and would be an improvement over the TV's...

Worst part is sanding as that can make quite a bit of mess. I have an attic, so it is much easier for me to modify anything I need to with the ceiling speakers.

That is part of their DI series, which are infinite baffle. What you are looking for is their reference ( R ) series... RLS, RCS, and RSS. These are enclosed units.

It looks like, at least to me, that the D-Sonic amps aren't as tall or deep as the XPR-5. The XPR-5 is 9.5" tall and weighs over 100 pounds. Since the amp section in the Denon X7200 is so anemic, I...

The Teac A-H01 is the only thing that comes to mind as far as integrated amp and DAC, but it is rather weak at 22w x 2 at 8 Ohms.

I don't think the 960 will be that much weaker than the 760. Both core and memory clocks are higher but that might not be enough to make up for the loss of 128 cores and 32 TMUs. I'm pretty sure...
