  1. If you are going strictly 2 channel, then a stereo preamp/amp combo is the "best" way to go. All things being equal, a stereo integrated amp would be a close second. If your system is a combo rig, HT and stereo, then your Anthem 720/Parasound A31 combo is a great choice. Be happy and content with your system because it's a good one. Bill
  2. SW308 all day long. Small size but packs a pretty good punch. Bill
  3. @pringlere(Rob), Welcome to the forum. I think the the A-2200 will sound great with any of the three choices. Bill
  4. This rig will be a great match to your Chorus IIs. It drove my Fortes and Quartets for quite some time and the combination was magical. Plenty of fast thumpy bass and very detailed. https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/176524-denon-pma-1080r-tu-800-and-dcm-440-300/ http://www.audioreview.com/product/amplification/integrated-amplifiers/denon/pma-1080r.html Bill
  5. MA500(125w) and MA700(200w) I used to own a pair of the MA500s and five of the MA700s. They were great. Bill
  6. Yes, and very worth the price. Bill
  7. Both sound fantastic in their own way. I have RF-63s, RB-75,s, Heresys and Heresy 2s and think they all sound great in their prospective rigs/rooms. IMO, none sound "better" than the other. @JT-TX, Move those Heresy 1s to a stereo rig and get the RF-7IIs for your HT system. Bill
  8. A very subjective question. Only you will know what sounds best to you. Bill
  9. What AVR or pre/pro will you use with this amp? Bill
  10. Big room requires big subs if you want to pressurize it for high impact action movies. A pair of SVS PB13 Ultras should do the trick. Bill
  11. I let my NAD's Audyssey MultEQ XT do it's thing and adjust as needed to my liking. IMO, it is trial and error because as you said all ears are not the same as well as all rooms. I think that came from THX's standards. Bill
  12. Well, I use and have used a combination of auto EQ/setup and manual adjustments. Some rooms(mine) are difficult to get "perfect" so a little manual tweaking is usually necessary. Sometime a just a little toe-in can make a huge difference or height/angle adjustment on your center channel. I do set my speakers to "small" but do currently have my mains at 60Hz and center at 70Hz. I don't all those 6.5" woofers(10 total in front stage) to go to waste. Bill
  13. @1CY, Welcome to the forum. You look to have yourself a very nice setup. The Onkyo will sound just fine. I have used an Onkyo TX-SR705 for the last 13 years and it has been bullet proof and a stellar performer. Bill
  14. Got it. Maybe experiment with the LPF settings on the RP-404C. Start at say 100Hz and work your way down to say 70Hz and hear how it sounds. Bill
  15. @jtbreen, Welcome to the forum. Just my opinion based on my experience with 4" drivers. I really don't think a center channel with such small woofers, even though there are 4 of them, has the oooomph to have much impact in a HT setting unless the room is on the really small(12ft x 14ft max) side and the front mains are small also. What size is your room and what are your left and right front speakers. Bill
  16. In that case, then look at this. https://www.anthemav.com/products-current/type=amplifier/model=mca-325/page=overview One of the quietest(low noise floor) amps you can by. Plenty of grunt. Bill
  17. This is a steal if all is well and good. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/ele/d/venice-aragon-4004-amplifier/7170427258.html Bill
  18. What are you going to use the receiver for? Bill
  19. If you are going full on multichannel HT, then an AVR is a good way to go. For 99.5% stereo music, then a stereo integrated amp, stereo preamp/amp combo, or stereo receiver are what I suggest. 5.2 channel AV receiver with 150W per channel (6 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 10%, 1 ch driven) Those above specs are some of the most manipulated, dishonest, deceiving, specs I have ever seen published. This is what they truly are. Power Output (8 ohm, 20 Hz - 20 kHz, 0.08% 2ch Drive) 75W Bill
  20. This here should meet your needs pretty well. https://www.accessories4less.com/make-a-store/item/yamas701bl/yamaha-a-s701-2-ch-x-100-watts-natural-sound-integrated-amplifier-black/1.html Plenty of power, built in DAC for streaming, subwoofer preout. Bill
  21. @INDY K, Welcome to the forum. If music stereo(2 channel + sub) is your main thing, then I would not go with a multichannel AVR. Maybe a higher tier stereo receiver or stereo integrated amp? What is your budget for amplification? Bill
  22. @Kadennn, Welcome to the forum. You have yourself a pair of walnut oil quartets that someone painted black. Unless it is only the backs that are black. How about more photos, front, top, and side. Bill
  23. Could not agree more. I would throw in 80's Denon integrated amps also. Bill
  24. Maybe look into these. https://nwct.craigslist.org/ele/d/agawam-luxman-404-receiver/7154877214.html https://westernmass.craigslist.org/ele/d/south-hadley-vintage-luxman-1050/7161711229.html Bill
  25. No DAC in the Yamahas. Strictly analog integrated amps. Bill
