  1. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I am looking for suggestions on a receiver for my daughter's upcoming birthday, preferably under $1,000 (max. $1,500). She lives in a Manhattan apartment and will use KEF LS50s. Her usage is primarily: streaming services (e.g., Spotify), albums (classical, classic rock), and some movie watching...
  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Goal: To conveniently stream Spotify from iPhone to In-Ceiling speakers in Dining Room & Kitchen. Ideally: Turn Power to Amps on (eg. Wall-switch for Amp power-outlet). Then on iPhone Audio Source choose Airport1/2 & hear the music. Avoid buying Sonos. Plan: 2 x 2 In-Ceiling Speakers (1 Set in...
  3. 2-Channel Audio
    i have a NAD T758v3, but after looking at benchmarks and the internal DAC doesn’t look like it’s the best performing preamp. I have started listening to a lot more music and am using more of a 2 channel setup that I want to sound best as possible. I have ML EM ELS as my fronts driven by a...
  4. Home A/V Distribution
    I've been lurking on this forum for weeks now and I just can't seem to find an answer for my specific question. I have a newly built house that I installed in-ceiling speakers for 8 different zones (2-CH music only). All of the speakers have their wires running to a utility closet that I...
  5. 2-Channel Audio
    I have hundreds of albums that are m4a (Alac) files that I'd like to play to my Denon-1300W AVR. I've tried the built-in media server capability of the AVR, but it's connection to the media server is spotty. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't (in troubleshooting, I found that if the...

    Hi all, I recently refurbed an old build to be a plex server/gaming rig/streaming box. I've got Plex and games working just fine but I can't seem to get most streaming apps to do what I want. I'm running Windows 10 with a TUF B550-Plus motherboard (no sound card) and the biggest problem I have...
  7. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    I didn't know where else I can post this without context collapse. My question is, is it so difficult for manufacturers to design streaming devices that can passthrough uncompressed Audio like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA? Almost everyone supports HDR formats like Dolby Vision, which might have...
  8. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Hi I know that the question has been asked before but all the answers I could see leave me quite perplexed with more questions. So I'm asking it "again" with as many details as possible, wishing to have, maybe, a concrete answer that will clarify all for me. Before, here is my setup : 1...

    Thanks in advance for your help. I'm trying to seamlessly incorporate streaming into my system. My setup right now consists of an Anthem 310, Ascend Acoustic Sierra 2's, a Rega P3 turntable, and a Harmony Elite controller. I've been using a basic mini audio jack to connect an iPad to the AVR...
  10. Home A/V Distribution
    Anyone out there have a system using Crestron (Pyng CPR3) and Autonomic music servers? I’ve had problems since the install almost a year ago. These are supposed to be standard bearers but neither will accept that there is a problem. The problem I have is that sound will just cut out after 5 or...
  11. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Anyone experiencing sound cutout using iHeart or Tunein radio apps with music streamers? I have Autonomic mms servers running on my network controlled by Crestron Pyng. Without fail these apps will drop the sound and have to be continually restarted to get sound back. I also use Tidal but do not...

    I think this is an industry-wide problem. Because I've heard how bad 'Star-Trek' TNG,DS9,VOY sounded on CBS-All-access. And I've heard others complain about Netflix and Amazon. No attention is given to audio-quality. I've just picked up a Roku for the first time. And I tried to watch 'The...
  13. Soundbars
    I want to connect my iLive soundbar to TV by a digital optical for best sound but also want to connect the TV audio to my AV Receiver for best streaming audio. Can I use a splitter to handle this? I don't use the soundbar when watching streaming since I am listening through my 5.1 system. Is a...

    You could win a Denon DNP-800NE network audio player, so what are you waiting for? Enter today! Unless you live off the grid—in which case, you're not reading this—you know that streaming audio has become one of the primary ways we listen to music these days. Unfortunately, it's often lower...

    Has anyone been successful in getting streaming audio (Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu) to play through Home Theater 5.1 system using a Samsung 4K TV and an Onkyo Receiver TX-NR626? I have not. I would appreciate any tips as to key settings. Thanks. I am losing hope that I can make this work.

    My first "serious" stereo receiver was a Yamaha R-7, and I loved the way it sounded with a pair of Infinity RS5000 speakers. Now, the company has leveraged six decades of hi-fi engineering experience in the new Yamaha R-N303 stereo receiver with far more capability than my old R-7—and it costs...

    Oppo is well known for focusing on delivering superb audio fidelity with its universal disc players as well as its headphones. At high-end audio shows, I typically lose count of how many Oppo UDPs enjoy a prime spot in equipment stacks. Now, with the Sonica DAC ($800), Oppo eliminates spinning...

    I hope I am posting this in the right forum. I have a canon 80D and have 2 røde NTG3 mics as well as a binaural mic with a regular XLR cable. So what I would love to do is live stream some videos using those devices. I plug in my canon to the pc with USB, and I could plug in a røde into my...
