    I like all of Starker, Ma and Bylsma. Bylsma is interesting since it's performed with proper Baroque technique. Starker plays gorgeously, but almost a Romantic interpretation. Ma is somewhere in...

    Seriously? Bohm is the most plodding Mozart conductor ever. He directs everything as if it were written in the 1860's. The orchestra here is about ten times the size it should be. I love his Brahms...

    Yeah, I know. My complaint is why so much reverb? WTF? The DSP's are capable of some very interesting things. I hate reverb. It can work for pop music - sometimes - but always sucks for classical. I...

    Heh, I agree. Was still editing when you replied ... every time I play with it even though I might like what the effect does spatially it's always accompanied by too much reverb

    Actually I'm kind of torn between surround / 2 channel. I do like the DSP's modern AVR's have and would like the capability to play SACD's that were recorded in 5/7 channel. That said, I wish there...

    I'm just curious, but wondering where I can find an AVR that pushes 150-200 watts to these. I don't see anything until you get into big amp/preamp setups. What do you all think is the best AVR to...

    Equalizers ... are they garbage?!?

    I like them, and I think if you have non-audiophile equipment they can make quite a difference if adjusted properly. I have an old Onkyo that I like a lot. Unfortunately, they no longer include tape...

    Well, I find 2 channel is fine for older mono (pre-1990's films) - which is almost my whole collection. More modern surround stuff I can never hear what anyone is saying and the music is 100x louder...

    Are you sure - the back says "Monitor 5JR." I thought the 5JR+ used SL 2500's? Mine have SL 2000's. I bought them in the late 80's; I think the 5JR+ came out around 1992, right?
