What Class D amps will drive a 2 ohm load
Having read this very interesting discussion in its entirety several times I have to ask the commentators a question since neither the pros or cons truly answered the original Inquiry. Let's say I want to take a plunge into class D but do not want... 
Upgrade 7.1 to Atmos, can the tv decode it for me and send the signal via ARC
Short answer.........maybe if the TV has the required outputs and atmos processing capability and you have a more than 7ch amplifier. In other words direct to amplifier connection. The Emotiva UMC 200 is not capable of supporting Atmos encoding. T...

@maxwave,  have you made indyaudiolabs aware of the issues you have encountered? I have encountered some issues not related to yours, in my case the switching occurs but I get no audio signal. You might call it a partial switching failure. Only a ... 
Recommendations for Vintage Speakers
I'd look for vintage Polk in the SRS-SDA series. They were remarkable in my vintage system. Sorry I let them go. 
Would you even consider?
@noble100 , Tim you're not looking hard. I started this thread because while browsing a number of selling sites and in most cases Oppo unit prices were exhorbitant. Even older 103s are out there for in excess of 1.5 times the retail price as are 1... 
Would you even consider?
@noble100 , your post is appreciated although erroneous in some istances. There are quite a few 105, 103 players out there for sale with manufacturing dates back to 2012. Yes I agree that they were an excellent product and am sorry to seen them go... 
Would you even consider?
Very interesting responses. I agree with the majority of replies. It's difficult to justify the exorbitant price on a used defunct product. Only the buyer can determine the worth. For myself I will pass on such a risk. The void left by Oppo is alr... 
What were some of your early Hi-End audio gear/influences?
@keegiam , that depends on how old you are. The best of the 50s does not come close to the worst of the 90s. Certainly there is the best of any timeframe and still a good listen but trying to compare it equally with the best current offering it ca... 
Lexicon MC-12
I used it for both HT and 2 Ch listening. It has many features to enhance 2 Ch which I enjoyed on occasion. Most 2 Ch was plain stereo and it sounded very good, not quite as articulate as the classe but very close. Settings and adjustments are imp... 
I went from Class D to Luxman A/AB - And most of what you think is wrong
@georgehifi, I stand corrected, you are correct. For whatever reason I was under the impression that it was a class D amp. It is not. Well that's ok, but now I'm really curious about class D, George Hifi you got a loaner I can try?

@maxwave, Quebec no problem, hop, skip and jump to Louisiana, especially for the over 60 crowd. LOL! Might even meet a relative. I'm  no spring chicken either, my body tells me so. I get grumpy when I switch inputs and nothing happens as I grumpt ...

@maxwave we agree on room correction, which in my case is not a requirement. Room correction is not a cure all, at best you gain at a loss elsewhere. As I stated this was not meant to be a run of the mill unit, it is designed for professional HT i... 
Lexicon MC-12
It's more than reasonably capable, more like extremely capable. Very nice machine, of course you need to assure all is well. A good indicator is that it runs the diagnostics and I assume it goes into standby mode. If it does not go into standby mo... 
Lexicon MC-12
If I can be of help feel free to pm. I'll do my best. I truly was impressed with the MC12B and only removed it from my system after a modernization. As soon as one friend heard he snatched it up. Never got a chance to list it for sale. I still hav... 
I went from Class D to Luxman A/AB - And most of what you think is wrong
A tidbit for the anti D crowd, recently a friend who has been out of town came by for a visit.  We used to jam quite a bit and he did not know my Krell Kav 250 died and is temporarily replaced by an Emotiva Gen3. While jamming he exclaimed that my...
