Niagara 1200 and subwoofers
I had hum issues with 2 JL fathom 212v2s. After a lot of research I solved it with a filter on the coax going into my TiVo and then purchased a CMX-2 from Emotiva. I think it handles something called DC offset and it solved my problem. I have both... 
Connecting Fire 4k stick for audio on X4400h
If this is similar to a marantz unit you basically tell the receiver which input you want to have passively passed through it. In my experience with a marantz 7007 when the receiver is off it will always default to what you selected.  The only sid... 
Projector comparisons
thanks for the feedback.  The reason I'm thinking used is that practically speaking I'll only be able to use it so much, and I tend to consider "cost per use" when purchasing anything (or at least most things), thus something like a high end watch...

Hi - was that supposed to link to a useful site?  If yes it did not work.   Thanks! 
Home theater couch?
Thanks for the replies.  Stressless is looking like something of interest I’ll need to see if the have less modern designs to fit my space. I’ve had a Natuzzi sectional for ten years. From day one the cushion support has been terrible and I even h... 
Has anyone heard the Lexicon MC-10 processor and can they describe its characteristics.
@erik squires - the mc10 is the latest unit from lexicon makes zero sense (to me at least) why they went the opposite direction with the model number. I too am interested to hear about the lexicon.  I have an 8802A through Lexicon RX-7 Amps to Rev... 
$27,500 for whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat???
Why do people care about how others spend money? We all chose careers and some careers pay more than others.  Some are lucky. That’s the world.  If someone has 27k for a paint job and that’s how they want to spend it why is that bad or wrong? Help... 
Any good shelf systems out there?
Appreciate the audio engine suggestions but I don’t see anything with a built in am fm tuner or CD player am I missing something? 
Non-manual speaker selector?
Hi- thank you both for the suggestions. It is a Niles HDL-6 and it does have the protection button. I’m not sure what that does exactly but if it keeps things from catching on fire or burning out I’m all good. I’ll try this with all zones pushed i... 
Streamer for oppo 205
Hi -  not sure what Vidmate is and the oppo is already purchased but not delivered so not sure the maranta suggestion helps much. It also does not appear to play SACDs is that accurate?  To be clear I’m looking for a lowish price thing like fire c... 
ATI AT6007 amplifier hum
Do you have hum just coming from the amp or do you hear it in the speakers?  I have 2 lexicon RX-7s which I think are similar to the ATI. One hums a bit but it’s in a rack in a closet and speakers are dead silent. Like you they are on dedicated 20... 
Streamer for oppo 205
I have a land cruiser for my every day driving but I digress...  :)   I actually do have the same Sony blue ray player you mention which got relegated to bedroom duties as if I recall it does not have analog outs which I needed for a space as my r... 
Bass management with stand alone preamps
Thanks for that write up, that’s pretty interesting. I’ve seen at least two companies, McIntosh and PS Audio , come out with their own proprietary methods of passing DSD to their own equipment. I’m guessing this is not an easy thing to do , but it... 
Bass management with stand alone preamps
Interesting thread so far.  I’ll be playing with the bass management settings more in my processor based on some of the comments here. One other question - with the room correction equipment I’m holding it’s best to feed a pure digital signal but ...

What are ESL? Martin Logan speakers?
