    I don't have a power conditioner. I'm thinking of getting one now, after seeing how my receiver was starved by my surge protector.

    Bottom line is my receiver is now plugged directly into the wall, and it has solved the protection mode problem. I realize the surge protector was the limiting factor.

    I'm getting a pair of Monitor 60's by next week sometime. I was thinking of bi-wiring them, maybe Audioquest bi-wire cables or something decent but not too expensive. I don't have a separate amp,...

    hmm. I can't tell if that sounded like an endorsement for the Rti-8 or not, according to airplay & vr3. These were the speakers I was considering upgrading to in the near future as well over my...

    Thanks for replies. Now I'm deciding between the CS2 or CSi3. The CSi3 gives me slight upgrade capability for later, but I plan on using the same center for this setup with the R-30's & R-15's, as...
