  • If you decide to keep the RTiA 9’s look at the 70-RT inceiling apeakers. They are matched to the RTi line.
  • Good choice. It is a great set. The crazy thing is that it is a 2016 model and still is the top TV today. The price coming down is the only change in 2 years. Love my 940E but I know it’s still a step behind your Z. Enjoy

  • I don’t think it’s a lack of space on the disc. Disney has changed something. Wonder Woman was great. I have plenty of 4K discs with great picture and sound. The last killer sounding disc was Justice League. Also the Dark Knight series on 4K is a…

  • Glad to hear. MS can go pound sand. Your positive attitude has done you well.
  • Sounds like the Herbie footers are out. Hopefully the Soildsteel ends your search. I am still planning to order that stand. Thanks for the update and legwork on what is best for it.

  • What I don't get is the Menu comes up at reference volume and the movie is flat. 4K transfer looks good. Its sad the audio is so bad.
  • Wow! This has not been a good year for Audio enthusiasts.
  • Good to hear. I can’t wait to see it. No one but Ryan Reynolds could have this role.

  • You will need a high current amplifier with the 9s. The Marantz is a great receiver and has pre amp outputs for all channels of amplification. If you go with a 2 channel amp you can use the receiver for the rest of your speakers.
  • I have one in my office and it is a great amp for the money. I have run it with LS90s, RT16s and infinity Kappa 600s. I feel it has a good Neutral tone to it. I am also running it with the Marantz 5010 like mrloren. So with a Marantz it might b…
  • Good to hear. Hopefully the muchies aren’t bad with the steroids. My Dr says we could all take down a 7-11 by the end of treatments. The finish line is close for you I hope.
  • Order the Solid Steel discs and see where it leads. This hobby is always a learning opportunity for sure. The forum is definitely the place for us to see and help figure out what works for each of our situations.
