  1. 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
  2. MA500(125w) and MA700(200w) I used to own a pair of the MA500s and five of the MA700s. They were great. Bill
  3. Yes, and very worth the price. Bill
  4. 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
  5. A very subjective question. Only you will know what sounds best to you. Bill
  6. What AVR or pre/pro will you use with this amp? Bill
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. @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
  11. 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
  12. @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
  13. 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
  14. This is a steal if all is well and good. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/ele/d/venice-aragon-4004-amplifier/7170427258.html Bill
  15. What are you going to use the receiver for? Bill
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. @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
  19. @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
  20. Could not agree more. I would throw in 80's Denon integrated amps also. Bill
  21. 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
  22. No DAC in the Yamahas. Strictly analog integrated amps. Bill
  23. Take a look at the current Yamaha A-S1200 or last generation A-S1100. Vintage look, neutral/warmish sound, plenty of low end grunt. Bill
  24. Yes the Anthem MRX 720 only has unbalanced(RCA) preouts which will be just fine hooked up to your A31. Bill
  25. My SVS SB13 Plus mates very well with my RF-63 floorstanders in my 5000ft3 open plan room. For music the single sub is fine but in such a large room, my Revel B15 helps to pressurize the room for HT. I do suggest twin subs or dual subs if at all possible. Bill
