    I recently purchased a house with multiple "Zone 2" speakers throughout the house and two amplifiers to run them. Since my Denon AVR S700W didn't have a set of preamp outputs required to run the "Zone 2" amplifiers, I traded in that unit for the Denon AVR X1200W. I have two questions. First...

  7. Home Theater System Recommendations
    I'm assembling iteration one of a home theater and am looking for a low dollar pre-pro. I've looked at the emotiva UMC-200, but the lack of analog video inputs makes it less interesting to me. Good pre-pros that meet my needs start around $1000 and I'd rather spend the money on a projector...
