With $20,000 in your hand, what speaker would you
Magnepan 20.1 and still have a nice bunch of $ left 
Why would you run video through a processor?
Depends what kind of processor you are talking about... if you mean a HT processor, then maybe not... or maybe... depending on how good the chip is in the processor versus the source.If you mean a video processor, then the answer is that it will m... 
Anyone send back Magnepan MMG's?
I used to have a pair of MMG's in my college apartment... loved them to death. I think the "problem" is that they are only $550... they are pretty picky when it comes to amplification and upstream components... and with such a low price, I have a ... 
video processor & hdmi
Ok, update... Bought a VP30 with ABT102 and SDI cards. Also got a SDI modified Oppo DV981. This way I can continue to use my trusty old PT-AE300U projector over component and scale it to the 940*540 resolution. Audio is routed through the VP30 to ... 
Prepro into a Preamp into an Amp??
What about getting a really good PrePro instead? I was in exactly the same perdicament recently and went with a Krell HTS 7.1. The HTS 7.1 really shines as a balanced pre. For HT it sounds great, but is missing HDMI (not an issue for me since I us... 
Magnapan 1.6 and 65 inch tv
Yes you can use the 1.6's with a 65" TV in between. Here's the "best" solution that I used... Build a false wall, so you can recess the TV into the wall hence creating a an equal space in between the speakers. Not only does it look great, but the ... 
video processor & hdmi
Ok, thanks everyone. Guess it'll be a new projector in the near future... one with at least 2 HDMI inputs... Since I'm quite happy with my Panny AE-300U (I know.. not HD capable, but it does look good), the logical choice would be a Panasonic AE-2... 
video processor & hdmi
Did some more research and found something that said that DVDO has switched off the component output when the input is HDMI HDCP... not good...Don't think I can get much better sound that the Krell HTS 7.1... this would be a full Krell HT, driving... 
Krell HTS 7.1 vs. Showcase
This is driving me nuts... The Showcase can be had for about 1/2 of that of the HTS7.1... I want really good sound (pri. 1 in stereo since I'm combining a good stereo with my HT). No way for me to audition both, so question is... is there really n... 
Krell HTS 7.1 vs. Showcase
You're actually in line with what I'm doing... Krell HTS 7.1 (most likely...), KAV250a and KAV500, Cardas Cross for the front, and some unspecified Cardas (still to be bought) for the rears... MG1.6QR and CC3 for fronts and MGMC1 (4 of them) for r... 
Krell HTS 7.1 vs. Showcase
Ok, seems like the concensus is that the HTS 7.1 does indeed sound a bit better...Puerto- impressive collection of Maggies/Krell you have! I bet it sounds amazing. 
Krell Service
Had my Krell KAV-250a in for repair since the left output blew. Took them one week from the time I dropped it off to the local store to the time it was back again for me to pick up. So turnaround time was very good.Not only did they repair the amp... 
Need some recommendations on Tube Preamps
I'm using an Eastern Electronic MiniMax pre with my Krell KAV-250a to drive my Mg1.6's. Sounds glorious! 
Sleeper preamp suggestions
Eastern Electronic MiniMax! Superb sounding tube preamp that looks great as well (just has a cheesey name) 
Classical speakers that do violins well??
You won't be able to beat Magnepan MG1.6's for classical!
