2-ch listening in a Home Theatre setup

Recommended Posts

So, it is looking like this after a bit of refinement.

Option 1: CXR-200 - keep Gross DAC - keep monoblocks for L/R (if better than out of CXR direct).

Option 2: Emotiva RMC-1 & Elektra 5-ch poweramp - sell Gross, sell monoblocks (if performance is as hoped for / expected...)

2) would take some hope on my behalf that the AKM4490 is implemented well compared to Clay’s super work.

Not ruling out a NAD, but that would get me needing to make larger changes re DSD/PCM source / Roon setup / sampling / BluOS / replace ultraRendu etc.

And with that...... decision made.

Ex-demo CXR-200 from Melbourne Hifi $2,499 on eBay. Used 5% code. Done.

Goodbye old AVR Onkyo TX-NR906.

Goodbye preamp (which I now need to sell)

Good choice ; couldn't help but feel the RMC1 didn't really match your concerns if you don't want 9.1.6 atmos or bi amped speakers with built in electronic crossovers ; not to mention we still don't have the manual ;)

If you do want to try room eq theres always a sub with built in auto  peq or a mini dsp with dirac :)

Great buying Raff, hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine. Be interested to hear how the mono blocks compare to the CXR amps too.

 

Enjoy!

Hello, I am speaking without experience of prepros, but thought I would throw the new Yamaha A5200 into the mix. Prepros tend to be overpriced IMO, but this one maybe not.

The only thing that holds me back on the Yamaha AVR / PrePro is the perception that the room correction / bass Mgmt isn’t as well regarded as Anthem’s ARC or Dirac. And I see this DSP being a major part of the PrePro
