  1. Go with a pure analog amp. Go with one that doesn't have bi-wire connection. If your speakers are bi-wirelable, use 2 separate runs of speaker cables. Avoid running both sets of cables from terminal a+b. And avoid running the high/low sections of the spectrum with amps of different circuit topologies! How can you be sure that lower and higher frequency timbre will even blend smoothly? Avoid getting a amp that doesn't double its power output at 4ohms vs 8ohms. That means that amp have kidney failure. The Yamaha output 100watts @8ohms, but only 150watts @4ohms

  5. I've heard a lot of records' sound ruined by using the spinner in the wrong way. Nearly every user i've observed while using it typically spin the record while pressing down the brush over the record surface. This can have very detrimental effect on the sound afterwards. I have the spinner myself. I highly recommend the spinner. But I will never press down the brush over the record while it is being spun at high speed. But those offering cleaning services with this spinner typically want to get rid of "noise" at any cost. noise can be gone, bu
  6. The unique thing about Dirac is their ability to synchronise the re-routed bass signals at the subwoofer to their original speaker channels - so that even the tiny (in comparison) ceiling speakers can sound like full range
  7. ONKYO TX-NR696 seems like only pre-out for front channels. izit enuff for you? can return, or trade in for higher models have pre-out for 5.1.4 channels?
