Lumin T2 streamer
I was wrong about using custom on resampling. It changes nothing. I am getting great results by turning ARC off my 1120. Last night I turned off signal processing so I am as far as I know using the DAC of the Lumin. I tried this before and my fami...

What is a good price for a pair of piano black 85F and 55C speakers. I am thinking of upgrading to the Focus line  
Suggestions for upgrading amps in my home theater system
@hoosierinohio When I listen to music I am only using the Moon Sim 330A with L-R and no center and no ceiling speakers. The reality is that everything is good but I am a gear head and always thinking about making it better. I hate to lose money se... 
Suggestions for upgrading amps in my home theater system
@Eric, that wouldn't work, I have an 1120 which I want to sell to buy the Anthem AVM 90. I am currently using the Moon for the Left -Right and the 1120 for the other 7 speakers    
Suggestions for upgrading amps in my home theater system
@maxwave Great suggestion, I had not thought about the  MC MC8207. I thought it would be best to have the front three the same but I really would rather keep my Sim. Thanks

@bwguy thanks, yes it is set to custom. I don’t have a clue how to set it so yes the defaults are native. I just registered at Audio Shark and will check the Lumin section. Thanks again  
Should I buy Anthem 1120 for a 11 speaker system or Sony 5000 ES
@audiotroy i started this discussion in 2019. I wound up buying the 1120 for my main system and I use the Denon AVR that I replaced with the Anthem for my bedroom. I did another upgrade in 2021 where I replaced my Atmos and surround speakers with ...

Lumin T2 question
thank you @Audiotroy and @djohnson54. It makes sense to me what you both said. Thank you for your answers. I was concerned that I was getting the optimal resolution from the Lumin   
Integrated Amp or preamp to separate Lumin T2 from home theater system
@tuberist I am using my Sim as the amp for the Lumin. I only use the amps of the 1120 for center speaker and ceiling speakers. Are you saying I can bypass the Anthems preamp and it will sound better using Lumin as preamp?
