  1. Melo, I like H/K but the TV doesn't have RCA connectors and willand, that Yamaha is with tax at $600 and budget is $500 plus it's reconditioned and I don't need the extra 10 watts - 40 to 60 watts should be fine with these speakers. I understand the NAD-C316 BEE is a very nice clean sounding amp (audiophile quality) Does anyone have experience with NAD's or does the Yamaha A-S301 best it for quality sound? Or is Denon better than Yamaha?
  2. Hey guys, just picked up a pair of RP 600M Gloss Black speakers (Wife wanted that finish) and they are going in a living room, soon to be built and they will be putting out sound from a 70" Samsung tv and also music from a Bluesound Vault 2 sound system. I already have a few tube amps for other places in the soon to built house and for my wife solid state is what I'm looking for in the the living room. For spending under $500 (tight budget) I find my choices for a fine sounding amp to be: 1) Nad D3020 V2 2) Denon PMA 600NE 3) Yamaha A-S301 BL 4) Nad-C316 BEE I don't have much knowledge on SS amps and I've heard Yamaha is more tube like in sound than Denon, or is it the other way around? And know next to nothing of Nad but it has some good reviews, and maybe someone knows something better than these I've picked? Oh also the living room is 17 feet on the speaker wall and goes back about 40 feet to the kitchen. No subwoofer output necessary. If it comes with it, fine. Any help would be super appreciated
  3. Thank you all, I'll check out the RB-75's now!!! Steve
  4. Has anyone listened to a RB-81? With all the hoopla over the RP-600M I would think the RB-81 is the better, deeper, richer sounding speaker. Or maybe the crossover in the RP-600M is more sophisticated and put out better sound?
  5. I was wondering are the RB-81 ll's a slight improvement over the RP-600M's or a whole other dimension for overall sound? Not much of a price difference for the bigger woofer I see. Thanks for any help, Steve

  7. Number 6, the Prisoner - from the 1968 series "The Prisoner". Incredibly smart lad.
  8. It's possible you don't have enough output from your cartridge, that was my problem with my amp which has a phono preamp. You may need to go with a higher output cartridge.
  9. You might want to consult with a certain Doctor.................I believe his name is Frankenstein - either that or a Staff Sgt that's in charge of launching ICBM's.
  10. I was taught in the Air Force Academy on electronics it's not the voltage but amps that kill you - even a tenth of an amp (0.10 amps!).
  11. MC240 is what I would go with, with what I have heard.
  12. I can almost promise you that you will get them before Christmas this year.
  13. Where are you located? Steve
  14. It says message sent. but I can't find it. Steve
