Appropriate quality interconnect between Oppo 203 and Denon AVR? Suggestions please!
I have had good results with a Chord C-Line IC between my UDP-203 & Hegel Integrated 
to bi-wire or not?
@soix: can you explain what exactly you mean by bridging the positive & negative speaker posts together? i always thought you had to remove the jumpers when bi-wiring.
