Why do people say low power amps should be good for bookshelf speakers?
I've basically got the same amp, the MHA100 and it's a REALLY NICE sounding set up through the speaker taps. I'd say 90db or better for a larger room or loud volumes....bookshelf or tower. My 95db bookshelf speakers never make the amp break over 2... 
Beginner Looking For Set Up Advice!
Don't think anyone actually answered your question, but yes you can feed all your HDMI inputs into the tv and the optical out will be a single source for the Peachtree. This is how I run mine. That Peachtree looks pretty cool, the pre-outs will fe... 
Tinnitus sufferer: is it the speakers or the 24bits/192kHz
I've tried many different combinations and what worked for me was alnico full range speakers (Omega) and Mcintosh gear. Not the pinnacle of detail or transparency but it's smooth as butter and the most enjoyable I've ever owned. I used to have to ... 
Decware: a worthwhile option?
My 95db Omega's use less than .5 watt at spirited volumes in my room. I'm also very curious about Decware, I really like their low stated power draw of 65 watts max. I was actually going to start a thread to see if anyone knew if the SE84UFO25 was... 
Stereo systems are like Harleys
Marcus Dairy, oddly never made it there even though I'm close. Limerock is a lot of fun, lots of open space so should be open. 
Stereo systems are like Harleys
I hear ya on the electronics, but there's no going back. My Twinkie gave me no issues either mechanically, just fuel injection problems.  I've settled on Mcintosh for now, pretty happy with it for the time being. My bucket list keeps growing though.  
Stereo systems are like Harleys
I've had a bike on and off for 35 years, my last was a Dynaglide that had for over 10 years but sold it just over a year ago. I'm eying a Sport Glide now. Nice looking Softail, love the springer front end. So you guys get the whole Harley/stereo t... 
Stereo systems are like Harleys
Virtual signaling, now that's a new one for me...thanks for the link MC. If that's what you call a subtle poke to have people be a little nicer around here, so bit it. You sir, have a nice day.  
If you stream music from the internet, I can't recommend this more highly
I'm not saying that any of these devices don't work, but what I don't understand is, don't streamers cache a certain amount of the data internally? If you are listening to music and you pull the ethernet cable out of your streamer, it will continu... 
Small Footprint (compact) amp to power speakers?
Parasound Zpre3 and Zamp3 makes for a very nice little system. Used would probably fall into your budget.  
Women who enjoy quality speakers
n80:   "She does not know how to work it even though it is no more complicated than firing up the space shuttle."Now that made me laugh!!!  To the OP and all the lady audiophiles, I think it's awesome and I'm sure most would very much welcome more... 
Can anyone recommend an FM Receiver that would play into a relatively high end system?
Well I would certainly consider a Mcintosh MAC7200 as a high end receiver. I thought there were some other pretty decent integrated amps that had FM card options too. I listen to internet radio a lot and have thought about getting a tuner for pote... 
Beyond Boutique Speakers
I started that other boutique thread and was very impressed with the number of small shops producing quality speakers. It must take an enormous amount of passion and dedication to do that. We benefit from the choices and quality so I love the idea...

ostinatospeaker: Are you the "refugee from the corporate world"? lolBest of luck with your new venture, hopefully years from now your name will be on a list like this. Personal progression to a boutique speaker? I've had the big names my whole lif... 
What's your favorite boutique speaker maker
@jayctoy, I had a tube setup for a while but I run my stereo almost around the clock since I've been working home with the pandemic. I switched to a Mcintosh MHA100 that I bought NOS from Audio Classics and it mates very nicely with the 95db Omega...
