Adding Home Theater To 2 Channel System
OP - If you want a true home theater experience it’s easily doable and you won’t duplicate it with a 2 channel set up no matter how hard you try.  That said, if you have a great sub set up integrated with your 2 channel set up, you may be really h... 
Tekton versus Klipsch
Ah the Tekton debate, seems never ending.  I’ve never heard them so can’t comment.  If the OP is looking for high efficiency speakers Omega’s referenced earlier in this thread are fantastic.  The Build quality and cabinetry work is beautiful.  Lou... 
Home Theater Bypass , why am I hearing this now.
The important point is it’s more than doable and there are a lot of options depending on budget.  I’ve had an a separate amp / pre with HT bypass in the chain with my HT receiver.  I’ve swapped Front speakers, streamers / Streamers around.  I’ve h... 
Home Theater Bypass , why am I hearing this now.
OP - you can have great HT and 2 channel listening in the same room sharing some of the same gear.  I started out really into HT and 2 channel was an afterthought. I have tweaked, swapped equipment more than my better half would like!  I’ve settle... 
Tube Amp in Snowpiercer
To the OP - I have pondered the same question about Mr. Wilford on Snowpiercer.  The show has gone out of its way to flash the Tubes and his love of vinyl.   
Schiit customer service seems poor
This subject seems to generate a post fairly regularly.  Appears someone has an ax to grind.I’ve never bought anything from Schitt but I had interest in a component, emailed some questions, got a response promptly.Small, made in the U.S.A. Operati... 
Can the top end of a PrimaLuna Evo integrated be tamed w/tube rolling?
I’ve had an Evo 400 Integrated for around 6 months.  I was surprised at how bright it was at first.  Brighter, more transparent than the SS amps I had and compared it with.  Over time as the amp and tubes burned in the amp sounded sweeter, less ha... 
Not in love with my system yet. Help!
I’ve got a Ti9 hooked up using REL’s proprietary cable which taps off the speaker terminals on the amp.  Designed to integrate into a  2 channel system more evenly / musically.  The subs can also be hooked up at the same time for HT via LFE / to t... 
Speaker recommendation $10-20K (with some requirements!)
Happy Holidays!  OP, I'm on the same journey as you are.  My ears have always been very sensitive to the higher frequencies.  I more recently jumped into 2 channel listing, my main focus prior had been on Home Theater.  I've swapped out amps (soli... 
How old are you?
Just turned 43 over Thanksgiving weekend.  Always had a infatuation with electronics - Having a sweet Home Theater set up was my dream growing up, best stereo set up I ever had was in my Toyota Corolla in college - think the gear cost more than th...

gosta - that’s good advice.  Thanks for all the feedback, comments from everyone.Seems like Revels are a brand I should look at as well?  Any specific models?  
Focal 1028BE2's or Tekton Moab Towers
Thanks for all the responses!  Sounds like the Focal’s and Tekton’s are two very different beasts or maybe more appropriately Beauty and the Beast.  Good advise that not every recording is going to sound good. I’ll continue to play around with spe...

I’m using the XLR connectors - Audioquest Yukon’s for the cables.  I did toe the Speakers outward, it opened up the mid’s and cooled the highs a bit.i hit up GIK’s site - filled out the form on room treatment, we’ll see what they recommend.Thanks ...
