Denon PMA-A110 110 Anniversary Edition
Not being harsh and apologize if I did. This unit probably sounds better than my AS3200, I'm basing this on the build quality and engineering.  Audiophiles are biased and could never admit something that sounds so good and didnt have the hefty pri... 
Integrated amp: Component weight
Im all about the weight. Many praise the Benchmark AHB2 that weighs 5lbs. No way will I buy something like that. It all about the heft imo.  
Denon PMA-A110 110 Anniversary Edition
@shtinkydog , the Denon will sound better than any of your amps bud.  
Tyler Acoustic speakers
T1 and T2 has always intrigue me.  Should I let my Elac Vela 403 goes, I would try the T1 next.  
Emotiva XPA-2 Gen 3 or NAD C 275BEE or Rotel RB-1582 MkII for Revel F208
although im a huge fan of NAD, +1 for me with Emotiva XPA-2 G3, at $1500, if its on sale, HC-1 monoblocks the better choice. if NAD 275BEE can be had cheap, go NAD.  any of the 3 you mention will sound better than the Denon AVR.  
Preamp - what's the purpose?
Never been a fan of preamps. The main course is the amp, preamp is like adding salt n pepper.

@shtinkydog , coming from a guy using a NAD C372. Easy stinky.  
Mark Levinson Repairs
I had the same dilemma passed on getting a ML.  The repair cost exceeds what I would spend.  Get a new and enjoy/embrace modern amps.  
Has anyone tried a Gustard H26 used as a preamp?
I use a X26pro as a pre. Sounds excellent  
Which Vintage CD Player To Use As A Transport?
@corelli Amen.  Couldnt have said it better. Bought a Yamaha CDS2100 and never looked back.  This player replaced my Rotel RCD991 that I adored after it stopped working.  
Cerwin Vega owner
I use cerwin vega XLS15 speakers for my outdoor BBQ with a crown amp. The bass is awesome. Rocks the yard and the neighbors.   
Big speakers, are they really the best way to get great sound?
Towers > Bookshelf any day, the comparison is not even close   However, if you have a small room, BS will work much better.  $300k speaker got me  
Eliminated my preamp with amazing results
I use a schiit sys  
Denon PMA-A110 110 Anniversary Edition
@kevmorse , I agree with you on this.  The Denon is a excellent amp for its value.  Unfortunately people on AGON see Japanese gear as mid-fi.  I can collect this gear for a lifetime, LOL.  At this point, Im happy with my sound room.  Its all I nee... 
what amps are you guys using for your for Dynaudio Confidence 20s?
@hilroy48 end game never exist in this hobby. People have Fleetwood Deville and change out.
