    So I noticed on some other forums that there's some excitement around the soon to street Marantz MODEL 40n. This integrated amp appears to perfectly tick the boxes for a 2 channel audiophile wanting a phono section and all the high res streaming options possible. I'm currently in the design...
  2. 2-Channel Audio
    I have a MacBook Pro and am looking to play high resolution audio through my Marantz 8805. I should not need an external DAC because the MacBook I have shows that it will pass 24 bit/192 kHz through the MIDI info and of course the Marantz also has high a high end DAC. What is the best...

    This listing is for a stereo (2 channel) Anthem MCA 20. Works perfectly. Was only used to power a pair of height speakers in a dedicated theater. Has “auto on” signal sensing that is super convenient or you can use the 12 volt trigger. 225 watts in 8 ohm, 370 watts into 4 ohm And 535 watts...

    I have a Marantz SR7002 receiver that I connect via HDMI to my laptop which runs Tidal in "Exclusive mode". I am just wondering what people think would be the 'weak link' in my setup (I have high sensitivity DIY speakers set up very well that image wonderfully and the room optimized as best as...

    So I have 6 of the Polk VT60 in-ceiling speakers that we're installing for an overhead sound system inside a little store/workspace of sorts. We have an Insignia NS-STR514 Stereo Receiver. What would be the best way to hook these up? Seems like I should be able to parallel wire two of them to...

    Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the current Musical Fidelity M8s PRE and the older M8 PRE other than the name? Thanks, Joe
  8. 2-Channel Audio
    I have recently come in to some B&W 702 S2s, my plan for which is to use as a 2-channel music only system in a more formal entertaining space (open concept great room/kitchen that's like 16'x35'). Space otherwise being tight, I am locked in on an integrated amp for this system. Phono stage...

  10. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I’m hoping you knowledgeable people can help me out. I originally posted a thread seeking help on selecting a suitable AV receiver and speakers (fronts and centre) for a 3.1 setup. I was originally planning on getting a 7.2 receiver as I may (a very unlikely may) end up getting some surround...

    I am having a very strange problem with my Onkyo TX-NR575 receiver when connected to my PC. The PC has Intel High Definition Audio HDMI chip to provide a 7.1 channel output. When I connect the PC to the 575 via HDMI, the PC states in its sound settings that it only has 2 channel stereo with...

    Any recommendations for a 2-channel amp, im looking for around $250. It doesn't need to be amazing or have all kinds of features, just a decent amp to power two bookshelf speakers from my computer.
  15. 2-Channel Audio
    Hello all... So in the land of mid-priced AVR's where the specs are all the same I find myself looking for good ol' fashioned higher quality 2 channel audio receivers. (Maybe amps) in and around the $500 mark. Any suggestions for better spec (than mid-priced AVRs) amps or receivers without all...

    Hi guys, Just got a pair of Totem Rainmaker. The place I got them from are telling me to match it with a Pioneer SX-N30. For the same price and roughly the same features, I also saw the Yamaha R-N602. I'm debating between getting both. They are the same price. If I get the Pioneer, I know...

    I recently was given a pair of Sony APM-615 standing speakers rated 300W at 8ohms. I have been trying to find a suitable amp or receiver for them and there has not been too much information about these speakers online or suggested amp/receiver. Does anyone have any suggestion? I am trying not to...

    Hi all: I understand how biamping works, and have a question to bounce off you all regarding a very nontraditional way to use it. Quick background (won't belabor the details): Converting an RV garage (17' x 60' with 14 foot ceilings) into an entertaining area. Concrete floors, terrible...

    Wondering which generation the Motiva XPA-200 with the silver corners is. Is this a good amp to bi-amp with or maybe just use as a stand alone 2 channel set-up? Also, is there a way to use a powered sub with this amp? Thanks for the feed back.
