What's good for HT isn't for music listening.I have a Marantz 2270 with BSW speakers, a passive sub and a Sansui turntable I got from my uncle. That was audiophile back in the day. My HT is a Marantz 5006, Athena front towers, bookshelf surrounds, and a **** Polk 12" sub. For listening to music, the old 70's setup absolutely destroys my home theater. It's a one trick pony, but to me more people want every song ever written on their ipod, and compress the hell out of it. Sitting in a dark room and just listening to music is an afterthought now. That's a shame.
So you're telling me that the tracking wheel won't unscramble it?
There's a Denon 5.1 receiver on woot for 149 + ship. Its another "should I or shouldn't I" moment?
And yes, the compression/loudness war (as wiki has called it) has ruined a lot of music in the last 20 years.
Go for this one instead http://www.accessories4less.com/make-a- ... ver/1.html. That store is really good.
I never understood (even for entry level models) using spring clips for the center channel. Most of a movie tracks signal goes through it, and they skimp there?
