    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. Can someone look into this? Bill
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. @Avbryt, Welcome to the forum. How much $$$ are you planning on spending? New, refurbished, or used? Where are you located? Bill
  12. Not on the RB-75's level but, from what I hear/read, the RP600M is a very fine performer. Bill
  13. What kind of $$$ do you plan on spending? Couldn't find much used locally to you on the usual sites. Bill
  14. @Sanman5272, Where are you located? And yes, for a high impact HT experience, a subwoofer/s is a must, 15" or larger. Bill
  15. 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
  16. @Andrey S, Welcome to the forum. I am very surprised at the results you are having with your A-S801 and RP-8000Fs. Unless your room is really huge, bass drive should be very acceptable. I have tried my Yamaha A-S1000 with my Klipsch RF-63s in my 5000ft3 room and the bass response has been wonderful. Fast, punchy, and very well balanced. Maybe your consideration for an A-S1200 would be a noticeable improvement. Bill
  17. While I do love my Griswold and Wagner skillets I own, my favorites to cook with are a pre 1940's BSR #5 for fried eggs and a 1960's Lodge #8 for searing steaks on LP burner and higher temp(+400 degrees F) oven use. To be completely honest, if it all came down to two pans/skillets in my collection, these modern Lodge pans, 10SKL and 8SK below would excellently do any cooking tasks that I perform. Bill
  18. Oh yeah, they(fried eggs) will slide around a well seasoned cast iron pan as well as in any "no stick" pan you can buy. I don't specifically use avocado oil to season my skillets but use it every time I sear steaks as well as pan frying fish. Great oil with the heart healthy benefits of quality extra virgin olive oil plus a high smoke point. Kind of like EVOO on roids. Bill
  19. Actually, with Enhanced Stereo, I can choose what channels I want active. L-C-R, LS-C-RS, all channels, etc. Bill
  20. I say try it out and then decide. Your room/sources/amplification is different from everyone else's so hard to say. Bill
  21. What a talent. RIP
  22. Are you kidding me? Folks, you are missing out. Bill
  23. @philk81, Welcome to the forum. A couple of suggestions on the used market. https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lisa515j-adcom-gfa-5503-3-channel-power-amplifier-gfa5503-27726-multi-channel-amps https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lisa52h9-rotel-rmb-1075-five-channel-power-amplifier-rmb1075-5-channel-thx-27814-multi-channel-amps https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lisa5bed-acurus-a100x3-3-channel-power-amplifier-a-100-x3-28289-multi-channel-amps New https://outlawaudio.com/shop/products/50-model-5000x-5-channel-amplifier.html Bill
  24. Though I do love the way my RF-63s sound in just stereo, when the RF-63s, RC-64, RS-35s, and subs are running in NAD's "Enhanced Stereo" mode, it truly does sound "enhanced" with great imaging and a seamless presentation. Bill
  25. I have always had my A-S1000 sitting on my CD-S1000 for better mechanical stability. Maybe a short riser under the laptop? Bill
