re: Surround sound system recommendations - Big Saint
[quote] 4 Speakers will be mounted to the ceiling[/quote] Since you already have wiring for this option set up look into Dolby Atmos systems. You'd be getting more speakers but you'd have a more immersive experience if you are looking for that at all. Just a recommendation. The brands listed ...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Big Saint
Thanks for the suggestion. No doubt Bryston is the next step up along with McIntosh but I'm thinking those will come at a later date. Still have plenty of earning years left to acquire those lines hopefully....

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Big Saint
OK so I have been continuing my search and have a few more questions for you Marco. What do you think of Marantz as a whole and specifically the AV8802a (or 7702 for that matter) pre/pro? What do you think of Emotiva amps and Marantz amps as compared with the Rotels because I think that's my f...

Marco thanks for the insight last night. I'll keep an eye out on Audio Gon and will make a trip to Metairie to visit Richard and talk Mac gear with him. ...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Big Saint
[quote]Mac gear really holds its value.[/quote] That's one of the reasons I was looking into it. Exactly how much better is it than Rotel or the Peachtree you linked for me earlier? It's obviously better across the board. I also know getting a Mac means I probably would never need another upgr...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Big Saint
Appreciate it. What are your thoughts on the Rotel RB1572 or the RB1582MKII? Similar power with one being Class A/B and the other being Class D. As far as purchasing on AudioGon... is it a pretty easy process similar to EBay/Amazon except with trusted sellers? I've never used the site but have se...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Big Saint
Well I looked at that one but (and correct me if I'm wrong) I also looked at the MC301 and MC302. The MC302 pushes double the power and looks like it's around $5,500. If I'm going to spend close to $5K already I may as well get double the power for slightly more. Now if it's actually closer to $8K t...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Big Saint
No that actually makes sense. Might not necessarily be something I look at getting right away with a powered amp but nice to know I can upgrade even further without ditching all the old equipment at once. Those Macs aren't the cheapest things unfortunately. ...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Big Saint
Haven't set a budget yet because I just started looking around. I saw that the MC302 is around $5,500 or so. That would more than likely be my max especially if bringing other components into the mix in addition to the power amp. I'm just trying to figure out if McIntosh is the end all be all althou...

Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Big Saint
Paging Marco, VABuckeye, and any other knowledgeable folks on the Tech Board. My system was put together while I was still in school and after spending the day listening to some stuff at the magnolia store inside Best Buy the other day I'm having an itch to slowly start replacing some things. ...

[quote]OR makes more than I believe 120K a year (the amount adjusts for inflation). [/quote] This part can't be true unless that number is significantly higher due to inflation nowadays.
