    Well, my future anyhow. I've been pushing everything through an Onkyo TX-NR929, which was antiquated the year after it was released as they won't/can't update it to support Dolby Atmos/DTS:X. I won't lie, I'm a little disappointed by that and I'm not sure I'm going to buy another Onkyo for...

    Am getting close to purchasing gear for my room and so far my concrete decisions for my 10x18x9 ft room are an SVS PB2000 and Oppo 103d. I have narrowed down amp/processing to a Denon AVR-4520ci or eMotiva UMC-200 with XPA power. I am looking for clean power, plenty of headroom, and ample room...

    I'm still hanging on with my trusty B&K Reference 50 (v1). After tuning the notch filter and parametric EQ with REW, this thing really sings. That's why I've just not been that motivated to upgrade - I have my doubts that I'll achieve an improvement in sonics. However, one of these days it...

    I currently have an RXV-375 that I have been using for about 6 months. It is the first AVR that I have had in quite a few years, and was basically an impulse, unexpected purchase with no research. Should I choose to upgrade, there seems to be a vast sea of options not only in AVR's, but also...

    Anyone else notice the new Separates components from yamaha, both the new MX-A5000 (pre-amplifer) and CX-A5000 (amplifier)? They look really nice and appear to have that signature Yamaha build quality. http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visual/av-receivers-amps/cx-mx-separates/

    Guys, I have been running my Pioneer Elite SC-05 for a little while now, but I'm starting to get the itch to upgrade. I was thinking about picking up a Emotive XPA5 and a UMC-1. Do you guys think this is an upgrade? I do about 75% music and 25% movies. Thanks, Pete

    As I understand the terms: 1) Separates refers to units that serve usually a single function in an HT or 2-channel setup, like pre-amp, power-amp, signal processor, tuner, EQ, and so on. Systems built of separate components are said to offer greater flexibility and expandability, but at a...
