    Driving inefficient speakers (82.5db, 4 Ohms) on AVR.

    I have a Marantz SR5013 and two rather "ineffecient" Nubert speakers 82.5db/1m@ 4Ohms. (nuBoxx B-40) For the AVR it says in the specs it can drive 185W for 2x speakers at 4Ohms, and of course less the more speakers are connected. Now, I don't have any issues with this setup currently, yet I...

    AVR or New Front Stage for music

    Hey everyone! I currently run rz50, Klipsch rp8000f and rp450c as my front stage. Everything else is also Klipsch for a 7.1.4 setup. When I started out I had no plan, and my budget wasn't clear, and so this ended up being my first surround system, not build from hand-me-downs from clients that...

    Stereo AVR vs HiFi + DAC for 1.5k-2.5k

    I am looking for a setup for both music and home-cinema, but I am more specific about the quality in the music side (as long as the movie part is fine). The room is quite big (7m*4m with 3.5m high ceiling - or 25ft*15ft for our US friends), I will be seated ar. 3m (10 feet) from the speakers and...

    Marantz Cinema 70S and MultEQ-X questions

    Hi, I have been wanting to revise my current setup into something with the ability to have room correction. I have been considering the Eversolo DMP A6/A8 with a Purifi/Hypex amp. I’m now questioning if I would not be better off with something like the Cinema 70S as a processor into the same...

    Hi everyone. The thread's subject is almost clickbaity as I expect responses of "there is no difference" as I have read on numerous posts here. However, I am asking more from a theoretical perspective. Most responses I have read are similar to the following: the DAC conversion in the external...

    Is 2023 safe to buy an AVR...?

    Multiple HDMI 2.1, Hdcp 2.3, 4k/120hz, Auro3D. Dirac firmware update options. is it safe to say that this is the PERFECT time to buy an AVR for the long term? Seems nothing in the upcoming future will render 2023 AVRs obsolete any time soon. Or are there any particular technology/feature in...

    Marantz Cinema 50 - Noise from -7db / 75 Scale

    Hi I just got a Marantz Cinema 50, feels like a nice unit. I’m a bit concerned though, I’m hearing noise from -7db (75 on scale mode). It doesn’t feel right to start hearing noise at this level from a « premium » product. Totaly audible at max level. I thought such a unit would be dead silent...

    Can a center channel improve stereo music?

    While planning my surround sound setup I got stuck at the questions if I want to get add a center channel or not.

It's really hard to make the right choice. When I go to listen to an AVR, it is each time in different conditions (room...

    Does a surround sound receiver make sense for stereo content?

    After reading about the new Schiit Syn I asked myself again if surround sound processing for stereo content is worth it . The Schiit is using one of the most simple ways to 'upmix' to surround by just playing the difference between L and R on the rear speakers to create a surround ambience. Home...
