Thanks for the kind words. I really like the Parasound. I upgraded from a Yamaha RX-V2095 receiver and paired the Parasound amp with an Onkyo pre-pro. My HT rig sounds many times better. Couldn't be more pleased.

My next upgrade will be in the subwoofer department. Will be a DIY sub with Exodus Shiva. Maybe a pair. I've already modeled the Shiva in a 6.3 ft³ slot vented enclosure and a single will most likely trump my dual subs.

After the sub upgrade I may do bigger mains and a dedicated amp for them. New mains will probably be DIY as well. Dedicated front mains amp will also allow me to run my system 7.1 with addition of two more (rear surround) speakers.
