    Sound quality wise, I have no complaints about the Monitors I currently have. The other day I could hear a clearly audible difference between a CD and a 320kb/s file, which gave me the impression...

    My understanding is that if any two or more drivers were playing the same frequencies, then there would be a parallel wiring type of situation wherein the ohm load to the amp would be reduced. But...

    Not to rank any one over the other, but the new Denon line includes a non-flagship model that has Audyssey XT32, which I guess is even better than XT. It also has the Audeyssey sub EQ HT, which...

    I'm sort of in the same situation except I've forgone stepping up to the RTi in favor of seeing what more power will do for the Monitors first.

    Emotiva seems like the best bang for the buck, but...

    Then again, I have the "dynamic volume" aka "loudness" switched on. You probably have yours on pure direct or something like it. So, maybe my -50 is like your -35.

    I forgot to say "but not vintage." Couple hundred bucks for one that is flawless the last I checked. Full set of pre-outs, though. So it might have a future just yet.

    Your Onkyo probably had a few inches of breathing room above it. He's got his in a cubby hole. That's his choice, but I merely wanted to express my shock over the arrangement.

    Frankly I'm flabbergasted to see your AVR operating with so little breathing room. Mine would shut down within a few minutes if it were squeezed into such a confined area. Congrats regardless.

    I was lucky enough to see him play live in an amphitheater sometime during the mid-90s. 20 minute 12-string guitar solo during one of the songs was definitely the highlight of highlights.

    Then again, the A7s with their dual 7" woofers may or may not be getting the power they need from your current set-up. Certainly the typical AVR will be enough to make them work, but I think it goes...

    According to the specs, the BDP-570 should play WAV files from the USB port.

    But I have the S790 and I haven't been able to play files from a thumb drive either.

    So, I've been using a 32GB...

    It looks like the HK3490 and Nad 326bee have full range pre-outs that you'll be using when you eventually add an amp, so that's one more thing they have going for them.

    Yeah I forgot to mention that an amp would be a part of any scenario that I entertain. I guess I think of an amp as being a "sunk cost" in that it isn't so much an option as it is a necessity.
