Not sure what you are asking.
Are you saying use a pre/pro with your Yamaha and outboard amp? If so, your Yamaha AVR would have to possess "main in" inputs for it to be used as an outboard amp.
I believe they are. I am pretty certain the DHC-80.3 msrp was $2999.99.
I’m considering two R-115SW’s I found for $800 and returning the SVS PC-2000 I just bought. The only thing I’m concerned with is the amplifiers since buying used I won’t have a warranty and I’ve noticed quite a few threads about amplifier failures with speakers not even that old. Is this just a case of the usual forum making it look worse than it is? A new amp is $200 so that’s half of what I’d be paying for the whole speaker.
Welcome to the forum.
Yes by all means use your RF-7IIs as rears and use the 64II until you can buy the 64III. Heck, the 64II may blend well enough with the RF-7III's that you will have more time to save up the $$$ for the 64III.
Thanks for the link. I found all the qualities mentioned in the review to be true for the Forte I's especially being amplifier friendly.
How much better is the Forte III? I would sure love to personally find out.
