winchester21 Posted January 12, 2014 Share Posted January 12, 2014 Hi folks-been away from the forum for a while playing with sports cars and guns among other things. My present HT setup consists of K horn fronts which are have modded wood horns with JBL drivers, a lascalla center(stock)), a pair of modded belles(wood horns-jbl drivers), and a pair of industrial lascallas for the rear speakers My electronics are as follows. SonyDA4300ES receiver which I presently have setup as an HT preamp. I am running an older Carver A-753X 3 channel aprox 250 watts per channel . Amp is marked as THX certified if that means anything anymore by todays standards. This 3 channel power amp is driving the fronts and the center. i have a pair of B&K EX 4420 power amps driving the sides and the rears apron 200 watts per channel each. The Sony has recently lost the HDMI input 1. The thing is 10 or 15 years old so fixing it seems like a bad idea and I don't work on stuff except cars and guns. I need at least 3 HDMI inputs and this leaves me with 2. I am looking at the Emotiva, Outlaw, and Marantz HT 7 ch preamps as a replacement for the Sony. Also, would I be better off swapping out the Carver and the B&Ks and buying a more modern self contained 7 channel power amp?Also I am thinking about buying an Oppo blue ray player at 500.00 and moving my Sony Blue ray player to a bedroom or den? The Sony was the top of the line just as Blue ray came out. Sorry but I don't know the model number, Comments, opinions, and testimonials are gently appreciated. Thanks in advance.
