No AV receiver/separate so far can beat a very decent stereo setup for pure 2 channels performance hence some dont even attempt to do so but having 2 sets of system setup at home one for movies and one strictly for music. That's something which is something to bear in mind if you decided to keep pursuing the AV gears with the thought of having superior 2 channels playing. However, if you're into multichannel audio playing, then the AV gears will have advantage over the stereos system as these sound tracks will require more than 2 speakers to extract the audio separation within the recording. Bear in mind though, to get best performance of the multichannel music playback, it's ideally to have identical speakers all around so keep this in mind as well if you plan to go this route later.
yes!,decisions were made,I'm going back to cd's!!! i can't beliveeee i gave away ALL of my cd's long years ago.
thanks for the replay again,i can say i pretty much "got it" ,im going authentic analog from a cd player,you know what? its going to be fun to start a cd cloection again,it reminded me the times i went into a cd's store and look for music,then u listen the the whole cd,u get to really knowing the artist\s,i haven't bin in a cd store in years,and i was wondering how are they even still around:rolleyes: , its like to those who got the bug for cars so they have a manual gearing..
i grow up on my brothers music,my brother got his separate sansui back in the midd 90s,i still remember it,sounded way better then any receiver i had since,which weren't that good but still,it has hdmi !
,it was more loud and just felt "real" and presents,but the speakers for todays standards wore rubbish,can't wait to plug the xq20 with the rithmik to a separate system,which will probably be used or manufacturing refurbish cues im on a budget,which was way less to begin with.
im going to start a new there'd for my coming system,still,this is a nad t747 receiver one,and I'm now going against,sorry for that ha..
hifi4hobby thanks a lot,i think I'm getting into the hobb Edited by Merto Eliasi - 5/20/13 at 4:27pm
