  1. The ATI 1502 is a beast of an amp and definitely has the power advantage but if it were me, I would keep it simple and go with the Pioneer SX-950. Bill
  2. RF-52II for $700.00, way over priced IMO. Bill
  3. Welcome to the club. I am very pleased with the results I have been getting with my Yamaha A-S1000/CD-S1000 combo for the last 6 or so years. Neutral tonally with great detail. Very balanced from head to toe. No sure what your budget is but I highly recommend any of these analog Yamaha integrated amps. The A-S1000 is the "entry" level offering from the first generation of the tank-like all analog models. They are dead quiet with uncanny ability to just let the music flow. The volume knob/remote volume button is very well designed and increases/decreases at a very manageable pace. Also, the tone controls are the best I have ever used. As mentioned, the A-S1000 is the lower tier of these integrateds so I can only imagine what the mid and upper levels would bring to the show. Bill
  4. @ali_alsaadi, Welcome to the forum. Nice amp for the price. What is your budget? Where is your location? Bill
  5. @Tracy D., Welcome to the forum. You got yourself a very nice pair of speakers. If you got them for free and don't have to sell them right now, enjoy them for a little while. If undamaged, they will retain their value and a year from now will still be desirable. Market value today would be in the 800.00 to $1100.00 range and will be at least that a year from now. Where is your location? Bill

  7. @Solow73, Welcome to the forum. No $$$ invested is a good way to start your Klipsch journey. Just my thought here so take it all as you will. Sell or move one pair of RF-7's to another room. If you must use all 4 RF-7s in one system with an integrated stereo amp with A/B channels, there is one thing you must consider. The amp will see a 4 ohm load for each speaker which considering you like it loud, may shorten the life of that said amp. With that said, a high current amp is highly recommended. Not a bad choice with the Denon but a little more horsepower may be a better choice. The Denon PMA-600NE is their entry level stereo integrated amp that is better suited for a pair of bookshelf speakers or small/medium floorstanders. No you don't have to spend that much to get something to drive your RF-7s well but if a Denon is one of your choices, I would suggest this, which is less than $1500.00. No bluetooth though. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/denpma1600ne/denon-pma-1600ne-integrated-amplifier-w/dac/1.html For even less, this Yamaha stereo receiver may be a nice alternative. Many nice features including bluetooth, subwoofer out, room correction, https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/yamrn803bla/yamaha-r-n803-2-ch-x-100-watts-networking-stereo-receiver-new/1.html Yamaha R-N803D Laboratory Since most of the loudspeakers are 4 ohms (although half of them are labeled as 8 ohms by the manufacturers), we did not consider 4 ohms to be "extremely difficult" and we did all the measurements with both 8 and 4 ohms. in output ("non-exceptional") mode. It was a good choice. At 8 ohms, when driving one channel, the power is as much as 146 W, slightly less in the two-channel mode (2x133 W), and at 4 ohms, the R-N803D "turns up" wonderfully, as befits a decent stereo amplifier - in one channel the power reaches 240 W, and with two loads simultaneously - 2 x 207 W, which is clearly more than in the manufacturer's data, which promises 2 x 160 W (at 4 ohms). The above Yamaha has been on my radar for quite some time. Bill
  8. With these below test numbers I bet it can. Lab Tests The R-115's power output at clipping into 8-ohm loads at 1,000 Hz was 105 watts per channel, well above its 70-watt rating. Into 4 ohms, the output was 148 watts, and into 2 ohms it was a potent 210 watts. The dynamic power output during a 20-millisecond tone burst was 170 watts into 8 ohms, 275 watts into 4 ohms, and 350 watts into 2 ohms. The 8-ohm clipping and dynamic headrooms were 1.77 and 3.85 dB, respectively. Bill

  11. Similar things have happened to me many times. Bill
  12. Speaking of Cambridge Audio. This is a great player and may still be available. I had the CA 751BD and it served me very well and only sold it because I found an Oppo 105 right down the street from me. https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649731239-cambridge-audio-azur-752bd/ Bill

"It is not possible to play SACD, MP3 or WMA discs on the CXC. The CXC uses the same S3 servo as our Azur CD players and is optimised for CD playback only." Bill
  14. Only way to hear the SACD layer is to send via RCA(Analog) to preamp, amp, AVR, etc. or through HDMI(digital bitstream). Some early players could send SACD digital stream over FireWire(IEEE1394). I think the Denon 3910 is one of them. Bill
  15. @Billddrummer, Welcome to the forum. Nice beast of an AVR. Can you be a little more specific and tell us the model number? Bill
