amp and receiver

  1. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I've read so much that I figured I would take the risk and just ask at the expense of being told all the info is in the forums. I know and trust me I've read so much but most answers feel like there's tribal knowledge that's being assumed one already knows. Is anyone willing to just dumb down...
  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I'm replacing my 10 year old Onkyo & Polk 7.1 system with a full 7.1.4 Atmos system. My question is really from both a sound quality perspective and value perspective, does it make sense to pay 50% more for an 11 channel receiver than it would be to pair a 9 channel receiver with a separate 2...

    Morning/evening everyone. Posting another question since.. getting into the higher end of things, I'm starting to get a little confused on what I need and don't need. I am going to be upgrading to Polk Legend L200 for front L/R and a Polk L400 for the center. (surrounds will be Polk Monitor...
  4. Speakers
    Hello all! I'm looking for some advice as where I live, I can't demo really anything that isn't in a store like Best Buy. The Legend line has me interested, and want to find out which I should pull the trigger on when a good deal comes around. Fronts will be upgraded before anything else and...

    Sonos Amp is expensive. What did I, a discerning audio enthusiast, do when they cannot justify the price of Sonos Amp? I searched for an alternative. After nearly a week of searching, I discovered the Arylic A50. I’ve been playing with it for a couple of days, and I’ve got some thoughts. To set...

    Hi, I just bought 2 cerwin vega xls 12. For the moment, I run them with a Denon AVR x1200 but it can't go loud as i want. So i'm looking for a power amp. I'm hesitating between the Crown XLS 1002 (which i can have for 279 €), the Crown XLS 1502 (for 369 €) or the Crown XLi 1500 (for 299 €). I...

    Folks, I am in the process of setting up a atmos HT. Initially i had plans to setup 5.2.4 atmos using Denon x4400h receiver. MY front towers are either A5 or A7 polk RTi. While i can externally amp the Front speakers ( RTi likes that) and also leverage 11 channel capability of my receiver, i am...
  8. Home A/V Distribution
    Hi all, We moved into our current house a few years ago which previously had a whole house audio system installed that we have yet to utilize. They left a Russound PRO-8 speaker selector and each room has a standard rotary knob to control volume. After further investigation I was disappointed...
  9. 2-Channel Audio
    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...

    I am looking for help with picking a receiver and possibly an amp to power the following 7.2 setup, subs I have not decided on so leaving them out for now looking to get the speakers first. Most receivers only go up to 135 watts at 8ohms and from the specs of some of the speakers no where near...

    hello, I am a new user to this forum. I recently was given a Yamaha A-27 amplifier and two speakers to go along with it. My current goal is to utilize the system as simple sound system for parties and listening to music, rather than a home theatre set up. I dont have much experience with systems...

    So last night I had a college party at my house and about 3 hours in the music completely stopped! Went over to my receiver (Sony STR-D865 I believe 200W) and it was about as hot as Kate Upton running a 5K in the Mojave. All it was showing was horizontal red lines on the display. We unplugged it...

    Right so I picked up a pair of B&W CM5 speakers and got a bit of gear from my dad such as a RX-V530 Yamaha AMP (30 years old) a DMP-BD30 Panasonic BLUE RAY PLAYER RX-V530 (runs my cd's) and a Polk Audio SUBWOOFER (Model unknown/ 30 years old). Now I'm ready for a bit of an upgrade I really want...

    System: I have an AudioSource AMP 110 connected to the Zone 2 RCA audio out of a Yamaha RX-V675 receiver. Issue: When I change volume on Zone 2 of the Receiver, the volume on the Amp stays constant. I have spoken to both companies' tech support and said there is nothing they can do to achieve...

    I was going to go with the TX-SR674, but I decided that the extra $150 doesn't justify the component, composite, and s-video upconversion. I think that's the only difference. Anyway, if you own the receiver, please post your opinions here regarding the receiver for audio and/or video...
