    Dirac in the 2021 Onkyo AVRs

    Yeah, so it seems we already have to add the cost of a mic upgrade to the initial price... Well, it's still cheaper than nad.

    Dirac in the 2021 Onkyo AVRs

    Indeed, there's something fishy about all this, that I chose to ignore ;) Alternatively, maybe Dirac changed its pricing strategy to be able to enter mass market?

    KEF LS 50 Meta: NAD C 326BEE a good match/stands suggestions

    It depends on how loud you like to listen and ho big your room is I guess... It's not super powerful but should be competent enough. Stands: any cheap stand that you can fill with something will be very sturdy and even Labrador proof... No promise for kids though.

    Dirac in the 2021 Onkyo AVRs

    Replying to my own post... Dirac would be available from the $899 receiver and up. https://www.cnet.com/news/onkyo-and-pioneers-2021-receivers-back-in-black-with-8k-video/ I may be wrong but I don't think Dirac has ever been that affordable in a receiver. I'm salivating.

    Lost in the jungle of suitable AVRs

    Quick, no time to waste!

    Dirac in the 2021 Onkyo AVRs

    It seems to be confirmed: https://www.cnet.com/news/onkyo-and-pioneers-2021-receivers-offer-8k-video-and-two-way-bluetooth/ I guess in Pioneer as well.

    Best SUB for KEF ls50 wireless II

    In Europe the value options are XTZ, BK and Arendal. You can't go wrong with these 3 musketeers.

    Looking for measurements of Elac Carina fs 247.4 and Wharfedale Evo 4.4

    I would love to see them in situ, I'm afraid the finish they chose could look bad.

    Denon AVR-X3700H Vs existing Yamaha AVR

    It's such a pity they discontinued that range.

    No love for Magnepan???

    There must be CIA black sites visually more inviting and warm, but it must sound phenomenal ;)

    Anthem STR Integrated vs MiniDSP+Purifi

    Alexanderc pointed to a new NAD amp (in an other thread) that you should consider as well: https://nadelectronics.com/product/m33-bluos-streaming-dac-amplifier/ I know I don't answer your question and I'm actually adding more headache but best you know about it :D

    Did you make your choice about an amp BTW?

    Smart phone for less, a lot less ...

    Not only Tesla, plenty of car makers are now enthralled by this touch screen fuckery.

    Recommended receiver for my system

    That's a difficult one to answer. You can check the list given by Chrispy. The "cheap" ones are from NAD but they seem a bit buggy and don't measure well. Their new 778 hasn't been tested though and it looks different enough in its conception. There's Arcam too, but same story basically. Emotiva...

    Recommended receiver for my system

    No, I wouldn't say that, but if arc doesn't work in your room there's a chance dirac will. And since you're itching to test something else anyway, it would be more interesting to test something else entirely. That being said, my advice is to sit back and enjoy what you have.

    Smart phone for less, a lot less ...

    My very old iPhone 4 is in the clumsy hands of my mom now and still usable. That being said, I'm not sure keeping an iPhone that long is a good idea. They sure work OK for a longer time than other brands but after a (long) while they become an irritant, too slow, exhausted battery etc. What...

    Recommended receiver for my system

    I'm pretty sure you won't hear any difference between the 720 and 1120. The 1120 is a little more powerful but you already have external power amps so you don't give two shits about that. Getting back a discount on your 720 is never a bad idea though ;) For ARC it's a bummer. It was awesome in...
