Beginner home theater setup questions...
BIG congrats on paying off your student loans. I also paid off my student loans earlier this year - such a huge relief, but lots of work (always had two side hustles). I like the idea of the Denon receiver, SVS sub and OLED, especially right now ... 
Using the XBox
We recently purchased an XSX. Hadn't had a gaming system since I was kid - NES and then Super Nintendo. Truthfully, hadn't purchased a gaming system since I was afraid I'd become a chronic pot smoker and eventually stop going to work at the age of... 
Great service from HSU Research
Agree with the great customer service (and value) from HSU which is often overlooked. On two different occasions I’ve been given a straight answer - one of which saved me some serious money. Previous owner of a ULS-15 and current owner of two VTF-... 
Why do hipsters prefer analog?
Beyond audio format, I feel like vintage Marantz receivers have been on the hipsters radar for a while as well - maybe 2-3 years?

Best Smaller Bookshelf Speakers For Use Exclusively With Ambient Music?
I’d be curious to know what vintage amp you have. I’d also be curious if this will be low level listening to not wake other family members. I’ve had great results with the Sierras from Ascend Acoustics with similar music.

How important is spending time with your gear?
Agree with Russ. I enjoy seeing the tubes glow since they provide a little ambiance to the room. If everything was solid state and didn't have VU meters, I'd be okay tucking things (like my boxy NAD pre/streamer) away while attempting to hide the ...

Any good audio stores in Scottsdale?
USA Tube Audio always seems closed whenever I’m in the area. Arizona Hi-Fi is wonderful. Big Ear Stereo in Tempe is unpretentious and knowledgeable.   
Best player for Spotify
The spam for music converters is off the chain in this thread.  
Interesting comment on Bose Speakers.....
@b_limo had a 1988 Acura legend with stick in the early 2000s. What a car. It felt like a souped up Accord. About a 1,000 times better than my current ride - a base model Nissan Juke that's highly praised for its "unique" styling in the auto indus... 
Interesting comment on Bose Speakers.....
Does anyone feel like Sonos is the new Bose - convenience, marketing, lifestyle? Three of my neighbors and my best bud all have Sonos. With this said, my wife purchased some Bose Cinemates when we purchased our first house. Honestly, not too shabb... 
Please Recommend Highly Efficient Floor Standing Non-Horn Speaker Suggestions
Haven’t heard, but I’m intrigued by Coherent Audio in Canada.  
Thinking of taking the plunge.
+1 to BluOS and the Node - as everyone has already mentioned. For myself, this is the streamer that re-engaged me back into listening to music. The Node not only sounds great at its price point, but it has quite a bit of features: Subwoofer outpu...
