Well I certainly wouldn't make any assumptions about WMP ripping quality, or what it might do to WAV files. You can rip directly to FLAC with most any popular software, and the results will be the...

The actual codec used for encoding FLAC is the same regardless of what ripping software you use. Its a lossless process, again regardless of the software. There are many different softwares that...

You cannot "toggle back and forth" on a DVD-A unless it has been authored to allow that, in which case it would be a function of the menu on the disc. In other words, the player can only output the...

I'm using the A2040 with front stage amps and love it. Whether its worth it to you to get the 2040 vs the 1040 might depend on the value of the better DAC in the 2040.
I'd suggest that if you get...

There are bench tests available on the A3030 which would seem to indicate that something closer to 60-70 WPC is likely with 7 driven, possibly less. Of course that also means 60-70 with virtually no...

The vast majority are free with Prime. The cutoff for free seems to be around 2-4 years, so it won't be there if its current. But yes, you can buy them.

None of the current models will match the 3900 for power. My advice is that if power is the main consideration, go with the 1040 or 2040 and buy a good amp for the front stage with the money you...

I may well be all wet here, but my assumption has been that the MHL spec includes some basic remote command codes - which Roku would be using. Seems to me like the whole MHL idea would depend on that.

MHL port adoption has been slow, but many TVs and AVRs built since 2013 have one. The slow adoption is likely the main reason that Roku went with the HDMI version.

My 2040 sits in a open shelf with a glass shelf about 1.5" above it. Idling (no amps in use), the top of the AVR measures about 115'F.
