I was meaning to refer to the Atmos enabled speakers that reflect sound off of the ceiling. Andrew Jones has even stated that ceiling fans can pose a problem for those style speakers. I have no...

I for one have little interest in Atmos based on my theater experience. I just bought a new processor instead of waiting for a new one with Atmos capability. I am using a dedicated room for my HT,...

Lived at the Pearl in Doha for a while back in 2010 and commuted to Ras Laffan. Nice place (or at least it was). As for the amp vs AVR debate, well, the Klipsch are so incredibly efficient I have...

Appears that my celebration was premature. Decided to run ARC this morning and guess what? Yep, the noise is back. Looks like ARC is the culprit. Not real sure what to do now. I used the...

I would be happy to give you my initial impressions of the MRX / ML combo. First off, let me say that the Anthem is not nearly as bright or edgy as my Pioneer Elite SC-75 was. With the Motions it...

Just wanted to report that I received my replacement 710 today and the clipping noise is NOT present. Needless to say I am super happy that has been resolved. I can only conclude it was a faulty...

That's what I meant. No real reason to talk about the theoretical cable limit because there isn't a workaround to the imposed standard. ;)

You can, of course. Would I? That really depends on if it will help or hurt. You don't want the towers to create interference with the sub. The safest best is to cross them over at 80hz (per THX...

DTS-HD Master Audio also contains a legacy DTS track for compatibility. I assure you there is not enough bandwidth to support lossless multichannel on the coax/SPDIF input.

Frankly whodunnit, I'm not sure I follow what your friend is saying. I've used ARC in the past on different AVRs, but I have no experience using it on the Anthem. That said, it has been a fairly...

Ouch! "a couple of years"? Hope that is negotiable. Depending on your room, XT32 may or may not give you a big leg up in performance. XT32 is great if you have a difficult room due to shape or...

Presently I am dealing with a defective Anthem AVR that I use as a preamp, but once I get that sorted I can get back to testing/comparing.

Along with my strange clipping noise with HDMI sources, I too had problems with the AVR losing HDMI lock and causing my projector to just flash. Annoying certainly, but fixable. The Krell...

That's not what I wanted to hear at all. I had read a couple places about clipping sounds on the x00 series, but I had not seen anything on the x10 series. I returned the 710 to my dealer today and...

Thank you Tom. Surprisingly, that did the trick. No idea why that "woke" it up, but it worked. Plugged it back into my receiver and works like a charm again. Weird.

Having owned an Audyssey MultiEQ-XT32 AVR I can attest to the fact that I do NOT like the end result. I use ARES only to help blend the subs in better. I am a minimal EQ guy.

Can't put my finger on it precisely. I like clarity and musicality, not clinical and lifeless sound. I prefer warmth to edginess. It may not be technically correct, but it sounds great to me.
