  7. Verizon Fios Sound Quality

    AV Home Theater

  15. Sound Quality - AVR vs. Pre/Pro

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I realize I may be stretching it a bit, but I'd like my AVR upgrade to represent a significant step up in flexibility, power and SQ so I'm thinking separates as opposed to just an AVR. I find that I'm listening to more music lately and, even though I do not have a really good environment for a...
