  • Re: CABLE TALK??

    Fine discrimination takes time, effort, and money to develop, whether that be food, wine, music, art, anything involving sense perception. Tony has it right, most of us don’t have the time or money to really develop fine discrimination. And yes, social media just means everyone’s a critic, even when they have never even tried to develop their palates.
  • Re: POLK RTIA9 receiver??

    Yes, those are excellent receivers. I would get the newer refurb version due to video specs. That’s seems like a high price to me, but stuff seems to be more expensive up there!
  • Re: POLK RTIA9 receiver??

    The pioneer will work, but I owned a similar one and the non-elite pioneers just sound wimpy and sterile compared to comparable denon, marantz, and yamahas.

    You need one that had at least six rca (red and white) outputs labeled either 5.1 or 7.1 preouts. This will allow you to add an amp down the road.

    If the TV is 4K with ARC and you want to use the built in apps to view 4K content but also want to best sound then you are in a different league and it is going to cost you to get both a solid amp with preouts and ARC. But if the TV also has a digital optical output, then you could use that to get sound from an older receiver.

    Get your read on, figure out what you need (or help us help you) and tell us your budget and we will spend it x2 lol...

    We don’t know why they’re all packed up. But it could be for many reasons... he could be moving or he just wants them ready to go.

    Most of the time when we buy equipment it is sight unseen and unheard other than pics posted, so I don’t find this to be anywhere close to a deal breaker.

    The vantage (I’ve owned it before) are cumbersome but easy to pack and unpack, I’m sure if someone were really interested and local, they can open up the box and take a quick look.

    I agree, it’s his prerogative if he wants it auditioned, but that should not hurt sales.

    It’s his house and his rules.

    All true, but he doesn't have to be an azz about it.

    Late to the party @kharp1 ... Situation has been resolved.

    wait, did he apologize? I must've missed it ;-)
