    Has anyone upgraded a NAD T187 with the AM 230 and VM 310 MDC modules? Could you give me the steps to this to troubleshoot. In my experience I slide the new cards in and connected a two pin connection and a ribbon connection. Also I have noticed with Apple TV that it doesn’t recognize Atmos...
  2. Home Theater Computers
    I have an HP small form factor I use to stream youtube and play my rips. I added an AMD Radeon HD 6450 to get HDMI output. This is after I tried an NVIDIA video card. I have the same issue with both. The only option I can see is 2 channels max and stereo only. What do I do to get the PC to send...
  3. 2-Channel Audio
    My wife inherited a nice set of audio equipment when a display system was retired at her workplace: It's a Bryston 2B LP Pro power amp, estimated 5-6 years old (20 year warranty) and a pair of PMC TB2 speakers. All in excellent condition, complete with top-of-the line cables, even speaker pads...

  5. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Most home-theater owners use an AV receiver as the heart and brain of their entire system, but AVRs are an exercise in compromise, since they must combine the functionality of a preamp-processor (aka pre/pro) and multichannel power amp in one unit. For example, power amplifiers generate heat...

    Hi all. I am new to the pre/pro world and could use some advice. Would my SR876 make a good HT amp, if I was to purchase a low powered receiver with pre/outs. The HDMI board failed and the fixes suggested in the forums didn't work for me. Since I only use HDMI, it is of little use to me now...

  14. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    I currently have a home theater system in need of updating. I just switched out the TV for a Sharp 70" Aquos 4K Ultra HD Smart TV a month ago. The next to go is the receiver. I have a Marantz SR8000, which doesn't even support HD. I plan to keep the Mirage speakers (5.1) which are the same...

    Hi folks, I've checked on the official threads; but, I can't really find something that's a direct comparison. There are several shops with AV7701s remaining. At $1199 vs $1999, I'm trying to understand what all I'd be missing from the 7702 if I purchased a 7701. Atmos is the most obvious...
