subwoofer for Sony Af8
Are the tv speakers even still active with the headphones jack in-use? 
The 4k release of Blade Runner--is anyone as disappointed as I am??  It’s a problem on your end. Many people in home theater forums use the UHD disc are their demo and I have not heard any of these complaints. 
Benchmark Preamps and Amp - For real?
@mayordaley My bad, I thought you meant the Benchmark was lifeless by comparison (the same naming scheme threw me off). The Benchmark headphone amp outputs more than double the Pass Labs’ one (at least into 300ohm), so your assessment has backing. 
Benchmark Preamps and Amp - For real?
@mayordaley it was too lifeless to me If you mean not altering the music, then that’s exactly what I want. I don’t want to hear my amp, my DAC, my speakers, my cables, etc., I just wanna hear the music (with DSP to combat room modes). Some peopl... 
Need advice on what amp to get under a budget.

Help needed for Legacy Dual 12” Subwoofer
Wow, a passive sub, you don’t see much of those anymore outside of DIY.   So yeah, you’d need an amp to power them, a Crown XLS 1002 for instance.

Can anyone hear the difference when you add REL subwoofers when playing two channel
@m-db It’s the same as using high level inputs. There is no “magic”. The claim is that unlike a line level connection (RCA), the SpeakOn method allows for the subwoofer’s signal to have the same sound characteristics that is being fed to the spea... 
Recommendations for bookshelf speakers
@mr_m The RP-600M is indeed a great speaker for the price; however it’s impedance in the treble is very high, thus a tube amp would make the speaker sound brighter, and it’s already bright to begin width. Despite popular belief, Klipsch speakers... 
I'm having a really hard time with: "Power cable reduced my soundstage"...
Soundstage is the off-axis of the speaker, it can’t be changed. Now, channel separation, phase mismatch, frequency response linearity do play roles, but a different power cable is incapable of effecting this.

@lalitk   dimensionality, air, presence and texture.   You mean made up terms?  REL sells a $1200 10” that is -6dB at 28Hz, that’s insanely laughable.  If aesthetics/size isn’t an issue, a Rythmik FV15HP is the same price and a much better subwoof... 
Seeking speaker purchase advice
Ascend Acoustics Sierra Tower with RAAL upgrade comes out to around $3000 shipped, more for custom finishes. 
Can anyone hear the difference when you add REL subwoofers when playing two channel
If you want deeper bass, RELs are a poor choice. Without getting into the insanely expensive, Rythmik, HSU, PowerSoundAudio, and SVS give good/excellent musical performance and dig much deeper than REL. 
Speakers under $50k that rival $200k+ speakers?
If you restrict bass and max output, you can get amazing towers for $3000-$5000, such as the Ascend Acoustics Sierra Tower with RAAL upgrade.   There are very heavy diminishing returns once you go past $5K. Will a $20K speaker sound much better th...
