Warm Sounding Surround Receiver
"Freediver":Ditto for Harman/Kardon Receivers. I am throwing in MY bid as well.I had a Harman/Kardon AVR-210 from 2001-05 in my first H/T Setup, snd then when I upgraded my H/T Setup in 2005, I have sold my Harman/Kardon AVR-210 and went for a Yam... 
No very little Compromise $20K 5CH System?
"Macdadtexas":Oh yes..... how much are those Paradigm Signature 8 Towers???I think I like those too..... I saw those on their website.That was what the "*" was for in my post to "Lg1".--Charles-- 
No very little Compromise $20K 5CH System?
"Lg1":If I was in a quandry that is similiar to yours (that is, design an (almost) "no compromise" system with a $20K budget), and if it were "MY" $20K, here's what I would spend it on:Speaker System: Paradigm Signature 8 Towers** (Fronts..... For... 
What's the best way to get HD movies "on demand"
And what about getting a TiVo????I have the standard "HD" model (which has a 160 GB Hard Disk) that is listed for $300.00.However, I bought a refurbished one..... so I saved about $100.00 off the price.And then, there is the "HD-XL" model, and tha... 
Best Blu-Ray ANALOG Output - Under $1000?
"Mwilliford (Mark)":Or you could give the Pioneer BDP-51FD a try. I bought one almost three weeks ago. Superb picture and excellent sound. Load times could improve, but other than that, no complaints (so far). On the audio end, my player has Wolfs... 
Receivers
"Mantaraydesign":The Marantz SR8002 is not their NEW flagship receiver. That receiver has been out now for at least two years. We're waiting for Marantz to come out with a new flagship model that matches the rest of the models in the present line-... 
Receivers
"Mantaraydesign"I second "Audiobyus1's" recommendations. If you are buying a receiver in the high-end of the market, I would go with a Denon, as well as either an Arcam or a Marantz.Otherwise, as the lower end of the market, then it's either NAD, ... 
First Plasma/LCD purchase ever - a few questions..
"Rockadanny":Do you have any specialty audio/video dealers in your area???If so, why don't you pay a visit to one of them and get a second opinion.Surely, I have nothing against Best Buy, as it is one of my favorite stores. I would buy a lot of th... 
your reference dvd
How about "Fast and the Furious (#4)" when it comes out in a couple of months??? From what I saw in the preview on TV, there is going to be a lot of surreal action in THAT movie. And the soundtrack should be pheonominal (spelling??).AND"Cerrot":I ... 
Top ten DD turntables of all time?
In my opinion??? It is ReVox, Denon and then Technics EXACTLY in that order.I put together my first system back in 1983, and that unfortunately was completed with the addition of a NAD 5255 Compact Disc Player back in 1985. Had I went the vinyl ro... 
What would you recommend?
"Joe in Mobile":You have two options.....(01). Just like "Kal" has stated, get the Oppo BDP-83 and be done with it.OR(02). Get a Pioneer BDP--51F and then get a used Sony DVD/SACD Player. You could find a used Sony DVD/SACD Player here on Audiogon... 
av receiver help needed
"Okeeteekid":I second "Ninja's" H/K recommendation. Nice receiver, for a home theater system. As good as it sounds, I don't think I would use it in a high-end audio system. I have an Adcom Preamplifier and Power Amplifier for those purposes.The H/... 
AV receiver with hd radio tuner...
I believe Yamaha has a model or two (but not certain though).--Charles-- 
your reference dvd
I don't have a Blu-Ray DVD Player yet. I am either going to shoot for a PS-3 (w/80 GB Hard Disk) or the $800.00 Denon. The new and forthcoming player from Oppo is also a prime candidate. But in the meantime, for my reference movies??? For picture ... 
High-Def TVs?
Dave:The switchover takes affect on February 17, 2009. By then, won't have a choice. Because TV Stations will no longer broadcast shows in an analog signal. Everything will be broadcasted in an all digital signal.So, that's when it would be wise t...
