    Think of it this way: There's a signal coming out of your amp. At some point, that signal has to be split to go to each of you drivers. If you don't bi-wire, that split happens at your speaker...

    The short answer is, it's complicated.

    Watts per channel is a reflection of the power supposedly available to each speaker. So if it's a 5.1 receiver, it can deliver 90 watts to each speaker—under...

    I'd say the first thing you should do is decide what features and capabilities your require/desire. If you can find an AVR that gives you everything on your list, it'll probably be the better value....

    Those two things can both be true. Even Kantor and Barton will tell you that drivers measure differently after initial use. (Engineers tend to refer to this as burn-in, not break-in.) But the change...

    Meaning no disrespect, I think an independent bench test is more revealing than a perusal of the parts list.

    There's an old saying: The break-in period always lasts longer than your return privileges.

    Seriously, if break-in were a real effect, it would be impossible to design speakers.


    Well, yeah,...

    You could use coathangers. Seriously. It wouldn't make a difference. Jumpers are so short the resistance they add is trivial.

    Well, obviously I think highly of them, or I wouldn't have held onto them so long. I'll respectfully disagree on how they stack up against the best modern speakers.

    But the primary reason for the...

    I wouldn't necessarily fix the NAD. They have a terrible reputation for reliability.

    Break-in will only solve your problem to the extent that you get used to the sound. I'd reopen the speaker search.

    1) Break-in: Vastly overrated. It's probably you that breaks in (i.e., gets used to the sound), not the speakers.

    2) Bi-amping: There's only so much juice that can go into an amp, so there's only...

    The 3490 will drive almost anything. And if you own something it can't drive, you probably aren't interested in a mass-market receiver, anyway. Nothing wrong with upgrading an amp, but don't expect...

    I had an old Technics belt-drive modified to play 78s. But the easiest thing to do is get a new table. I think the Audio-Technicas play 78s. You will need a different stylus for 78s, as gdb said.

    New to Forum, Old to Polk

    Just found you guys, but I've owned a pair of Monitor 7As since 1983. (I'll be upgrading soon, so these will be on the market.) Glad to be aboard!
