     A little background. After purchasing the Ultra Center from SVS to replace my Klipsch Synergy C-20 I immediately heard a dramatic change in sound quality, as I expected. It was as if the C-20 was drowning out my towers. The clarity is unbelievable, and I would definitely recommend the Ultra...

    New member here; I just picked up a pair of klipsch RF 82 towers and will be pairing it with an RC 62 centre channel for an 18x14x8 room (4 level split so the room has a 11ft by 5ft cutout right behind the couch). In terms of powering them I have narrowed it down to the Onkyo tx-nr818 and the...

    Ok, so after hours of research I pulled the trigger on an AV8801! Will be replacing a Denon AVR-A100 which has served me well, I am now curious to hear the sonic differences between the two. I am now waiting for UPS to deliver my XPA-5 in a few hours so I can begin putting everything back...

My electrician I'm certain is becoming frustrated with me as I have no background in electrical requirements, etc, etc. He can be frustrated as he's also a friend and doing it on the cheap, so I have to put up with the smart ass...

    I currently own a Denon 3311ci with Audyssey MultEQ XT and I picked up a Denon X4000 with no intentions of keeping it because I just wanted to fulfil my curiosity if XT32 would be any noticeable improvement over XT in which I had my doubts because of most people on here commenting it was mainly...
