Recommend Class a Amp
I drove Martin Logan CLS IIz for years with McCormack monoblocks and they never failed me. Best sweet sound I ever experienced, and those speakers were not exactly ballerinas. 
Lottery Winner would buy what kind of Stereo Gear
Depends on whether I buy a single or double wide trailer. 
Anthem AV receiver better than Denon as a preamp
Pioneer Elite sc-68; see post in other thread 
Best AV receiver to use as an AV pre amp
I Come in Peace . . . I recently changed over to av receiver from separates although I thought there would be a downgrade in 2 channel sound. So I went from the Integra Research RDC-7.1 pre-processor (struck by lightning) to Pioneer Elite SC-68 us... 
Processor upgrade from Integra 9.8?
I believe it sounds very good, but I don't know how it stacks up against a Bel Canto or Parasound P7, or even a McCormack. The Integra is made by a mass consumer product company as opposed to the above. I realize that the Integras, Panasonic, and ... 
Processor upgrade from Integra 9.8?
Kal, the Integra Research RDC-7.1 was a surround pre-processor that was modular in design. One could order the unit based on which features chosen and a card with those features plugged in. An example was having an extra set of 7.1 inputs. It was ... 
Processor upgrade from Integra 9.8?
I am going to be that fish who attaches to sharks and eats the leftovers as my post generated one measly reply. Is the analogue section of the Integra Research RDC-7.1 good enough to forgo an upgrade and just use the analogue outputs of the Oppo 95? 
Processor upgrade from Integra 9.8?

How can you not have multichannel system
As the originator of this thread I appreciate your thoughtful criticisms and comments. The ending although it may seem bitter, was not, as it was somewhat out of order, and basically, representing two tired voices. I believe the debate died a natu... 
How can you not have multichannel system
Sure, if you leave out the title of your thread which is the culprit and the subject of my retort. My subject matter also is more divisive and known, and could be articulated in that vein. Intermperate language? You must be a prisoner in one of th... 
How can you not have multichannel system
Yeah, both comments mirror each other in tone and intent. We both had experiences where we felt nothing else could compare to our listening experiences due to, in your case a preamp, and in mine, the multichannel music. Our comments were tinged wi...
