    Found a good local deal on a pair of RF-82 IIs. Any suggestions for an appropriate (timbre-matching) center?

    Yes, RC-62II.

    An RC-62 would match at about 90% to 95% I would bet.

    I am still looking for a decent amp, looks like a lot of places are sold out or backordered. I was hoping to get the 11x from monoprice but that won't be available till March.

    Have you considered these instead.

    Same great ATI build quality but less $$$ and less power.

    GREAT!!

    Movie!!

    One of my all time favorites.  Brings back memories walking the tracks looking for track kill(not humans), crossing the trestle hoping no train comes, walking/wading through leach and cottonmouth infested swamps.

     

    Back to Hank Aaron.  It brings tears to my eyes every time I watch the clip of him breaking the record and rounding the bases and the two bold admiring fans patting him on the back.

    Ha! I was only ten and next to zero stress then.

    You and me both and not sure it was stress that started my nail biting.

    But I remember that and the "Thrilla in Manilla", Ali's jungle fight I missed most of it for some reason.

    Sports and exploring was all we wanted to do. 

    Back then and through my teenage years, we were like the kids in "Stand By Me", always on an adventure with very little stress and few cares in the world.

  5. A classy stand up guy who had all the reasons in the world to be bitter but chose the high road.  He will be missed.

     

    Did I mention what a great baseball player he was?:unsure::D  Go Braves or Hammers if the name gets changed.

     

    In addition to Hank being still the career RBI and total bases leader, a cool fact I read yesterday was that even without Hank's 755 homeruns, he would still have over 3,000 hits.

    I have an Onkyo Integra M-502 Stereo Power Amplifier for sale, if anyone is interested. Looks and sounds like new. 

    Joel,

     

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    Maybe consider moving this thread or reposting it to the "Garage Sale" Forum where we try to liquidate our gear.

     

    Good luck with your sale.

  7. @garyclayton,

     

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    What is the size of your room?

    How loud do you like to listen.

     

    In general, the amount of amplifier wattage isn't the most important thing, the quality of amplifier wattage is.  In an average size room(2500ft3 or so), as little as 40w/ch will make the RF-7 sing cleanly at pretty high levels provided those 40 watts are "quality" watts.  Quality meaning high current 4 ohm stable.  I once took my 90w/ch@8 ohms, 140w/ch@4ohms Yamaha A-S1000 integrated amp over to forum member @Youthman's home for an RF-7 vs RF-7II vs RF-7III shootout and all three shined with the Yamaha.  His family room/kitchen/dining room is pretty large and the Yamaha had no issues with dynamics and thumping those 10" woofers.  Enter the Acurus A200 and the punch was even more pronounced.  In the same room I bet that 40w/ch would have impressed as well.

    Just to clarify, a two subwoofer setup is no Double Bass Array. DBA means there is a subwoofer wave coming from the front, and when the wave hits the back wall, the back subs play with delay the reflected sound simultaneously, but phase inverted to cancel out the reflected sound, hence, the reflections are actively canceled out. With no subs in the back, it really does not matter a lot how many subs are in front, as long as you don't have subwoofers in the back or a baffle wall who absorbs the bass waves. If you take a look at this Youthman guy, there is a blank wall in the back, which will never result in an even bass response.

    I get what you are saying.  A bunch of talk these days about DBA and it will(can) accomplish what is needed.

    the room size  is too big for the few speakers  you want to buy -----------31 feet long  x 14 feet is huge because of the length of 31 feet  mostly  and the sound would be thin ,  unless you would reduce the size of the room  to 18 feet 

    How far from the screen is your rear seating?  

    I am not going to say that your front LCR is the wrong choice because of their size but I am going to highly encourage you getting at minimum another 15" subwoofer.  You will have a difficult time pressurizing that room(near 4000ft3) so you can "feel" car crashes and bomb blasts.

    a decent sounding CD (Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years"). 

    One of my favorites to demo equipment.  Especially "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" and Steve Gadd's drum intro.

    Finally, I listened to that Paul Simon CD.  Yes, it for sure sounded way, way better than my mp3 rip.

    I think I ripped my copy as a FLAC and it sounds identical to the CD.

  11. I have always been very fond of older Denon gear.  I have owned a POA-1500 amp, PMA-1080R integrated, PMA-700V integrated, PMA-757 integrated, PRA-1500 preamp, DCD-1500 CD player and a beastly DCD-3520 CD player.  All have been rock solid reliable, sweet sounding, and fast and punchy.

     

    With these guts(monoblock topology), I see no reason not to consider the POA-8300.

    Should I hold on to my Denon POA-8300 amps? | Home Theater Forum

    I think the RC - 3 should be sufficient with them, don't you?

    I do think so as well as @Zen Traveler.:D

    What would be a fair price?

    Maybe $100.00 to $125.00?  Not the price expert hear.

     

    Maybe you and @mustangerfourlife can discuss privately.

     

    Hope it works out for you two.

    I may purchase the CXA60 from Cambridge in the garage sale area.  And I may pick up a cheap/old AVR to compare it to. 

    I have a feeling you will like it.  The only AVR I have heard that sounds pretty darn good for stereo music is my 52.8lbs 2004 flagship NAD T773 driving my Heresys.  Though it does have a higher noise floor than most of my other gear, it can hold it's own when it comes to music.
