    Opinions on putting together a used high end 3.1 speaker system w/ amp and receiver

    Hi everyone, I've been researching high end speakers and amps for a couple weeks now, and honestly it's overwhelming. I'm not super technical so reading reviews and trying to understand the charts just confuses me. I've gone to a couple shops to demo speakers and amps in person but they've...

    Matching separates (pre/pro to amp)???

    Hi, Team. Wondering if there is a rule of thumb here, in terms gain matching your prepro and amps, in a separates config…. I have a very poor understanding here.

    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...

    AVR Decisions - Anthem, Arcam, Denon, Yamaha...?

    Hi, folks. As a few of you might remember, I've recently bought a 4k UHD television followed by a Panasonic DP-UB820 player. I'm in the process of designing a new equipment cabinet in an attempt to overcome my wife's objections to the tendency of AV black boxes to procreate when she's not...
