  1. changing the XMC out for a receiver with all the bells and whistles is going to be a backward step in sound quality. One thing the XMC is perfect for is the sound it sends to our external amps. Personally I dont give a toss about atmos. After installing many systems and hearing them in show rooms i still dont get what the big deal is about it. A good 5.2 system sounds damn fine to me!
  2. refurbed AVRs - why so many and any good?

    Onkyo / Integra lead the pack with faulty HDMI boards, and this went on for quite some time. Personally I dont like either brand anyway. Harman Kardon, well just rubbish in quality since 2012. They certainly do not make AV receivers like they used to, but Yamaha seem to lead the pack these days in relation to reliability. But even they don't have a perfect record either.
  3. Awesome, but how well do they work firing into one another?
  4. Home theater installation

    Well done, wishing you the best outcome!
  5. Hey rookie, what about the best value option right now. Grab the Integra 80.6 Pre/Pro in the classifieds for around $1800 and add a 7 channel Emotiva power amp ( BasX A700) for about $1000 brand new. You can always add more amplification later when budget permits.
  6. Why not grab the Yamaha CX-A5100 pre/pro in the classified section for about 2k and grab an amp or two when budget permits?
  7. I'd go the 3070 for the fact of full 4 years warranty plus a much better remote app, if that's your kind of thing.

  12. AV receivers that give top 2ch stereo

    Correct. For these sort of dollars you expect close to perfection for the role it performs.

    I picked up an Emotiva XMC-1 processor today to go with my power amps. Doesn’t get too much better than this!
