    Anthem AVM 90 Audio Video Preamp/Processor

    Not sure if this question has been asked before but when I play music from my streamer (Cambridge Azur 851n using Qobuz) through my AVM 70 using the optical output/input there's a really small lag between the start of the song and when I start hearing music. The first .5 seconds or so is...

    A Call For Humor!

    Pro tip: Attach an LED to all of your old lady's clothing. It'll let you know whether she's on, off, or clipping.

    Buckeye Amps: Purifi Mono, 2ch, and 3ch Official Thread

    Just wanted to give a huge shout out and many, many boatloads of gratitude to @Buckeye Amps for helping me complete this build. One Purifi 3 Ch. and one Hypex 6 Ch. made all the difference in my system. Couldn't be more proud to be a part of the Buckeye family! Been blaring this **** all week...

    Anthem AVM70 Review (AV Processor)

    For current owners of the AVM70, it looks like the HDMI 2.1 upgrades will rollout this fall. See below. Great news!

    SVS SB-3000 vs Rythmik F12SE vs PSAS2410

    Just as an update, the modem I purchased was an Arris Surfboard S33 that cost $200. At that price point you'd think the implementation would be competent enough to not interfere with other components. No amount of switching or moving things around made any difference. I returned the Arris today...

    SVS SB-3000 vs Rythmik F12SE vs PSAS2410

    I believe so but probably not for a while. There's not space for another one in my living room but eventually I'll move and should have a better listening area to incorporate a second sub and atmos speakers. In other news, my modem crapped out today. I purchased a new one and when I connected...

    SVS SB-3000 vs Rythmik F12SE vs PSAS2410

    Ended up going a little larger with the Rythmik E15SE-XLR3 build. I love it so far. However, I haven't fully dialed it in yet with room correction. Still waiting on my amps to arrive so I can hook up the XLR output to the Anthem AVM 70 and run ARC. Right now it's pretty much set to stock going...

    Topping G5 Review (Portable DAC & HP Amp)

    Total noob question... when Mr. Amir talks about applying filters, does he just mean applying a preset EQ like many AVRs have or is this something specific to the measuring equipment?

    Does my streamer need a DAC?

    So if using the digital outputs on the 851N defeats its internal DAC as stated in an earlier post, is it best to use the RCA outputs or does it not matter since the Anthem's DAC will do the final conversion anyway? I'll admit I'm very much a novice (if you couldn't already tell) so apologies if...

    Does my streamer need a DAC?

    Here are links for the CXA, CXN, and 851D. None of the reviews speak negatively about the Cambridge products but it appears their internal DACs don't quite measure up to the performance of the Topping DACs. I'm not knocking Cambridge at all. I love the 851N and have been extremely satisfied...

    Does my streamer need a DAC?

    This may be a dumb question but to clarify, I'd run an optical cable from the 851n to the DAC and then use the RCA outputs on the Topping E50 to output to the AVP?

    Does my streamer need a DAC?

    I'm placing the final touches on my home audio/theater system and I'm wondering if I can squeeze some additional performance out of the system by incorporating a DAC (Topping E50). I currently have a Cambridge Azur 851n that I really enjoy (using Qobuz). In reading some other reviews on...
