    I have replaced my old AVR with a Marantz NR1509, I know it's still another AVR. The Anthem AVM 2 above is still for sale and the guy is willing to take 100 bucks for it. I know I will have to get another amp for the cc (I also picked up the 400i that was FS here although it needs work before it will be ready).

    I would loose all the advanced sound processing of the Marantz, but do you all think it's worth it?

    $100 for a Pre/Pro that retailed for $3,000 is a killer deal. If it functions properly and you have output on all channels you will be not be disappointed. Buy it and if you don't like it I'm sure someone here would jump at taking it off your hands.

    I love Anthem.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; S60'S, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    That is what I was thinking, I made him a standing 100 dollar offer and he got back to me recently. Testing it will be a PITA and he may be difficult about that part. His add says an old roommate left it to cover back rent so there is a real good chance it is not functioning properly. I doubt he will have the equipment required to test it. I am hoping he is willing to work around that difficulty. Time will tell.

    What is everyone's feeling of the pros/cons of csi40 vs cs400i?
  • Well the Anthem deal doesnt seem to be going through. The guy is acting sketchy and doesnt understand why I would want to at least see that it works. Oh well...

    I did find these for sale close by for a song.

    5.) Polk Audio 7.1 "Reference Theater" Surround Sound Speakers (Used condition, some peeling vinyl delamination and scratches in places, but sound great!) -
    Includes:
    *PSW100 Subwoofer - one of the speaker wire connectors is loose (Consider this as free with purchase of speaker set).
    * 2x RT16 Tall Floor Standing Speakers
    * 2x RT10 Floor Standing Speakers
    * 2x RT3 Bookshelf Speakers
    * CS10 Center Channel Speaker
    * 4 x Yamaha small speakers (I just want to get rid of these. Consider them free with purchase- they work great.

    Looks like some TLC will take care of 90% of the delam. ai know they will not be the end game set up, but I can put together a pretty good 5.1 for the game room.

    I read that magnet shift is a problem with these so some glue is in order...
  • I run my sda2b off of a Yammy AS701 and they sound incredible, we use this setup for everything. Amp has sub outs but don't have anything hooked up yet, I have a Oppo Bdp83 player for everything digital and I'm working on a Technics SL1200 for my vinyl as the yammy has a built in phono preamp. I don't think you need a center for movies, I had a 7.1 HT setup but the SDAs played great and instead of having two different setups we got rid of the 7.1, I don't even miss it to be honest.

    I don't think you need a center for movies,

    You don't as long as you are able to sit in the center of the speakers. If you sit off to one side imaging is going to be lacking compared to a system with a center speaker.

    and that would be why I think that, we sit directly in front of ours, thanks for the clarification
