glad to have finally joined this awesome community after quite some time of browsing.
Right now I'm using an integrated amp (cambridge cxa80) in a dedicated setup for just playing music. However since I watch a lot of movies, even more than I listen to just music, I'd like to start...
I have a pair of hand built speakers in a 2 channel setup with a NAD integrated amp. The speakers are 4 ohm, 87db sensitivity and are rated to handle between 50 and 100 watts. I am looking to upgrade the system (ditch the amp) as I need to incorporate network streaming, handling video sources...
Hello, I decided to make a new thread for this on going dilemma, as I didn't get much feedback on the Rotel options (I suppose these are not too popular these days).

Help with Separates
Hey all, I’m brand new to the forum and looking for somehelp selecting my first pair of separates. To date, I’ve used solely HT receivers, generally mid-level Integrabrand (current one is a DTR-40.3). However, I’m due for my next “overhaul” sometime soon, as my primary TVis...
I have an RCA 5.1 surround sound system, but the receiver was on its way out so I replaced it with a Pioneer VSX-531 5.1 Receiver, and decided to use the old speakers because they sounded great when the receiver worked properly.
I hooked all of the speakers right up to the receiver with...
Here's the tl;dr version: What's the better use of my money. Get new amps to drive my current 4ohm Linn system or spend probably less money and change to an all Revel 8ohm system?
My current system is:
Pioneer Elite SC-35
Fronts: Linn Ninkas
Center: Linn Trikan
Rears: Linn Katans
I'm a beginner, and tried to understand things by myself, but I'm quite confused :(
Can you please help me to choose between those two amplifiers, to use with two speakers (6 ohm for high and 8 ohm for low)
technics su-v300 or su-x101
Any advice ?
I own an HK990. It still works great but I just wanted to have an idea what other amplifier would be a great or even better replacement for it.
Here is what I'm looking for and my setup:
I have 4 speakers connected to the HK 990 and 1 subwoofer
I play music from the laptop and I use the...
I'm looking for some help about opening the HK 990.
Yesterday I cleaned the unit and the hole for the headphone jack got loose.
I don't know if putting the unit sideways did it but in any case it got loose.
Has anyone opened the unit? Maybe to clean it?
From the pictures I've seen in...
Hi Folks - I recently bought used KEF 3005 speakers and Pioneer VSX 930k amp. When I called up the home theatre installation guy, he said that the amp doesnt have sufficient power to drive the KEF speakers, and recommended I buy a Pioneer 11xx series or Denon 2xxx series. Is he right in that the...
I recently (a month ago) bought a new audio setup:

- 2 Heco Celan GT 902 speakers (280 RMS / 450 MAX Watts)
- 1 Heco Victa Prime Center 102 speaker (85 RMS / 150 MAX Watts)
I have the two Celan's bi-amped on the Denon AVR.
I recently read somewhere that when...
We moved into a house with an existing in-wall speaker setup, all speakercraft, nice sound. It's the main living space of the house, so it's not a true home theatre set up, and I don't need it to be audiophile quality. However, I do like a nice bass to fill in the low end - not shaker-level, but...
My question is, with a ~$500 max budget, what amp/speaker set up would you recommend for someone inexperienced in the audio-world but who wants decent products to add to in the future?
Here is my situation. I recently lived at a friends house who had an awesome audio set up, and I...

New to the forum and I am far from an audio expert so please go easy on me if this is a silly question!

I need a new 12" driver for my box. It's 3 cubic feet with two 15" passive radiators. The Rythmik Audio driver (from 2002) in it blew a few months ago, and I would like something to replace it that will also have a nice rumble for movies and video games. Anyone running a similar setup using a...
