    Anthem MRX720 Specifications PREAMPLIFIER Maximum Output (<0.1% THD) 4.2 Vrms Parasound A31 Input sensitivity: 1 V for 28.28 V(THX Reference) As mentioned, you will have to set it to your liking. Bill

    Trial and error. You may have to experiment a bit. Bill
  3. @TeamBigD, Welcome to the forum. Very nice speakers. Good luck with your sale. Bill

    I think when you are using the LCR preouts to connect to an outboard amp, it disables the AVR's LCR speaker terminals. Bill

    From my understanding, amp gain controls are used to better match the output voltage of your preamp. Determine the preamps output voltage and adjust the amps gain accordingly. From the Parasound A31 Manual When to Set the Gain Control Knobs Above or Below Normal You can increase loudness by turning the Gain control knobs clockwise if your system will not play loud enough with the Gain control knobs set at Normal. This could be the case if your A 31 is driven from the pre-out jacks of an AV receiver (as opposed to an AV processor). We recommend advancing the gain as little as possible past Normal. As you increase gain settings you increase the chance of hearing a “hiss” sound from your speakers. You also run the risk of damaging your speakers (not to mention your hearing) if the volume level is too high. The primary reason to reduce the gain below Normal would be if your speakers’ efficiency is extremely high and your listening position is close to your speakers. Reducing the gain would reduce audible “hiss” from your speakers. Don’t worry about setting the A 31 Gain control to exactly the same levels for all channels because you can always balance the channel volume using the speaker level calibration in your home theater AV receiver or AV processor’s setup menu. Note: We recommend re-calibrating your AV receiver or processor’s speaker levels after adjusting the A 31 gain controls. Bill
  6. This amp would be perfect for any Heresy(1, 2, 3, 4) owners and of course other speakers also. Good luck with your sale. Bill
  7. I know a thing or two about this. I work as an inventory control manager for Vistar/PFG and we distribute to all(most) of the large theater chains(AMC, Regal, Cinemark, etc.) and let me tell you, the industry is hemorrhaging. As of 10/5/20, Regal has shut down all 500+ theaters nationwide due to no major studios releasing any blockbuster type movies until 2021 which of course is due to Covid19. AMC was hurting before Covid19 but continues to operate. As crazy as this all is, I am still very optimistic about things getting back to "normal". Bill
  8. Tough call. Upsampling does not always equate to better sound. I guess you will have to figure out which method would be best by trial and error. The onboard DAC in the DV7001 is 13+ years old and may not be of the quality of the newer, 7 years old, DAC in the SR6008. Really no way to determine until you try different configurations. Bill
  9. If you have been generally happy with NAD, then maybe look for a used C356BEE. Or maybe even consider a Cambridge Audio 651A. I have been driving my Heresy 1s and Heresy 2s with NAD and Cambridge Audio for several years now and have not come up with any reason to change. Bill
  10. @Avbryt, Welcome to the forum. How much $$$ are you planning on spending? New, refurbished, or used? Where are you located? Bill
  11. Not on the RB-75's level but, from what I hear/read, the RP600M is a very fine performer. Bill
  12. What kind of $$$ do you plan on spending? Couldn't find much used locally to you on the usual sites. Bill
  13. @Sanman5272, Where are you located? And yes, for a high impact HT experience, a subwoofer/s is a must, 15" or larger. Bill
  14. High Dynamic Power/Channel (8/6/4/2 ohms) 140 / 170 / 220 / 290 W Of course you know that is dynamic power not RMS. I doubt that very seriously. I have driven my highly sensitive Klipsch speakers with as little as 40w/ch and as much as 250w/ch with no ill effects. That's my assumption also. Bill
