  • I run 2-700LS in the MB LSI system and 4-70RT's in the main room rig. Both are great speakers for Atmos and Surround duty. Make sure you have room they are deep. I have seen issues with fitting them on a 2 story home with shallow ceilings. Love …

  • That’s awesome and will be a memorable moment for all.
  • I find the new gen3 Emotiva Amps to be less bright then their earlier offerings. I have been trying a Gen3 5 channel for a few weeks and it is a better fit over the gen2 I have. I will most likely keep it so I can fund my new subs too. The new DR a…
  • I have recently upgraded all my cables (AQ HDMI/Transparent interconnects) and I have a hook up with a retailer friend. When he showed me the discount he could get me I almost lost my lunch. 70-80% off on most cables. He said it’s the highest prof…

  • Very Cool pickup. We had issues getting the seller on the RTA's to respond so we ended up going and picking up a clean pair of LSi15's from a guy in Sugarhouse. I hooked him up with an Adcom amp and he is in heaven.

  • I plan to go tomorrow and look at them. Looks like a fun winter project to update with my nephew. He has the bug too. He got a Rega P3 turntable for Christmas. Now I want one.
  • I just went with the 940E it is an amazing TV. I have a buddy with a Z9 and it is better but not $2500 better. He also works for BB so he paid a lot less. I find the black level better then my Panasonic VT so it was worth it. It will get the DV upd…
  • Thanks for the feedback guys. I think I will stop and take a look at them. if I like them and he has a little room on the price I might take them. They will be for my nephew. I told him 5 years ago if he finished his degree I would get him som…
  • 1996-2000. Agree nothing special. RT16 are the ones to pick up
  • We love our Apple TV. Works great and has a beautiful picture. The movies we have in our iTunes account are all output in 4K if it is available. I have it wired to the network and it is fast. I hadn't noticed if YouTube was or wasn't output in 4k. …
  • Great sub. The 2000 subs are solid and with a very fast response. Great sub for the money with a real 17hz response. Going duals is amazing.
  • Cool link. Makes me miss the old days hanging out Saturdays at boutique Hi FI shops around town. I love the old Pioneer stuff. I always have called the pre Elite stuff Pioneer Reference . Sad to see all the mergers and money grabbing changes in el…

  • Well its taken a few long days to put everything back together. It is a pain for sure. The Marantz is a fun unit and does sound better on all formats. The subs both got moved to the front and I plan to add another one back in the rear corner again.…
  • Well I get to wait until Tuesday to get it running. I went to pick up my XLR cables this morning and I guess they are still in Cali due to the fires slowing down things. So Tuesday it is. Sad to see so many people with nothing left. I won't complai…
  • WOW! Nice. If I was in AZ that would be a must. Enjoy.

  • I think 9060's is a good way to go. You have a good setup and they will work well with it. Your receiver will be fine. Powered towers will take a load off the receiver. For sure it will save you from running down the rabbit hole of upgrades.
