Hello all, so after 3 (not to mention) av receivers in the last 5 years, and after countless hours of research, I have decided to go with a Cambridge Audio CXR-200 av receiver. At this moment I cannot provide a critical or accurate review but from what I researched I feel this avr will be a good decision. It came down to the numbers, 120wpc @8ohms with all channels driven, and even more enticing 170wpc @8ohms with 2 channels driven. Pre-outs are limited to 2 left and right channels which are important and detrimental to what I want to achieve in my home theater. From there this receiver seems to have everything that most to almost all av receivers have EXCEPT, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and the most 'wounding', HDR processing. What I found most intriguing about this receiver is what the essence of home theater is about; the sound and how this receiver processes that sound. Next week when I free this beautiful beast from its cardboard surroundings, I will provide a more detailed and updated review. Does anyone out there have experience or know of anyone owning the Cambridge Audio CXR-200? As always, thank you for you thoughts and comments.
Hello all. This is my first time posting because usually I am able to somewhat solve whatever home theater issue I have. However, this one I cannot. Thank you in advance for your guidance and help. I am currently in the process of rebuilding my home theater 7.2 arsenal with; RF-7II's (Front L and R) RC-64II R-12SW (2x) and RB-61II's (Suround back) Where are my surround sides? Currently next to impossible to find. I would love a pair of RS-52II's and even more so RS-62II's. I do have a pair for RS-42II's but for my own exsentric reasons, I want to go a little bigger. In you opinion, if I am unable to obtain a new to near new condition pair of either 42's or 62's how would one feel about mixing in a pair of the new Reference Premier RP-250's as my surround (sides) seeing as all the other speakers are part of the reference II series? Is this ridiculously taboo and frowned upon? I know mixing fronts with centers is no good, which makes sense. Please help! Thanks.
