grupoavigase.com/includes/396/2547-hombre-soltero.php To add what's been said, you should also connect the DC out on the marantz to the Trigger input on the amp using something like Thanks so much for the advise. I think I underdstand. To be more specific on what I? I will plug the R front into the red preout leaving the white one empty , the L front into the White preout leaving the red empty and the Center into the white preout leaving the red empty.

There is only one out per channel. Of course, there a many other separate power amplifiers on the market, but most are far more expensive than the Emotiva XPA.

I'm saying this more for anybody who happens to end up here from google than for your benefit. I agree the Apple DAC is the weakest link. A Detailed Look at your Conditions Determining questions on adding an amp: Today's receivers are jam-packed with features, the one thing they lack is power. Setting up a home theatre system on top of my existing stereo setup without hampering stereo performances , using my existing integrated amp naim nait XS and speakers ProAc Response D Or if you always play music from a specific source, hook it up there directly, perhaps with a Y-splitter is needed.
As far as "jerking your chain", I would never do, because I am actually in the process of building a new Home Theater system and I am very excited. I actually do research before asking and then ask in the forums for suggestions as sometimes people don't really explain well enough. Logitech speakers are not very good. PC audio isn't engineered for high fidelity.
Logitech doesn't use tweeters and their speakers have no resolution, detail and the bass is over powering and loose. I don't recommend Monoprice Banana plugs.
The jobs of receivers and amplifiers overlap, as receivers are essentially tuners with amplifiers built-in. An audio-visual receiver can function as an audio. Sir, I have a home theatre set up with marantz ud player as source, a pioneer vsx AVR and a speaker system with Boston A

Almost all consumer-level equipment is 8-ohm If you use different impedance equipment say 4ohm speakers with a receiver rated for 8ohms without taking into consideration all the factors, you can easily damage or destroy your speakers and the amplifier section of your receiver or discrete amplifier, etc etc It is possible to run mismatched equipment but speakers have to be hooked up in groups bye bye 5. There is such a thing as a bridgeable amplifier, but no, you can't hook two high-ohm receivers together to run a low-ohm speaker. As for how much power you need, watts per channel is more than enough for most people's home theatre.
Go much above that and you'll be getting the cops called on you for noise complaints. You were asking me about running this system for listening to mp3s and downloaded movies off your computer. To be brutally honest, you're going way overkill. The Yamaha RX series receivers you were looking at were perfect for what you're wanting to do. Even they might be a bit overkill. Let me tell you a secret: Starting off with a quality receiver, and a nice set of floorstanding or bookshelf speakers is all you'll need.
If you start messing with preamps and discrete components, you're going to be opening a can of worms. My advice is to buy an 8-ohm receiver and an 8-ohm speaker set. It's the most common impedance. You'll have a much easier time selling an 8-ohm set to most people if you ever do upgrade, or if you buy a new set and move the old set to another room, or replace a speaker or two it will be much easier to find compatible products.
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with using preamps, discrete tuners, decks, and amplifiers if you know what you're doing, but that takes quite a bit of forethought and knowledge and gets REAL expensive, REAL quick. To sum it up: Don't go with the Klipsch HT speakers, if you're worried about sound fidelity. Chances are you'll be missing some of the mids, and the only lows will be coming from the sub - like your logitech system. Don't buy the most expensive thing you can find, just because the reviews are great. It takes a trained ear to tell the difference between mid-range and high-end stuff, and it's near impossible to tell the difference between high-to-ultra high end stuff in terms of quality.
Different brands and models will have a different sound color which might be easily distinguishable, one might sound "bright" another "warm", but most if not all should have a "good" reproduction of the sound spectrum. Unless you already have a very specific picture of what you want your speakers to sound like and you've pretty much proved that you don't then the price difference isn't worth it.
This right here, the hopping around between reviews is why I recommended you go to a store to listen. You can't listen to the speaker online.
I really recommend 8-ohm speakers and equipment, or if not, at least buy impedance-matched equipment 4-ohm speaker to 4-ohm amp When it comes to Preamps, preouts, etc I don't think you need it. The amplifier section on any quality receiver should be more than enough, both in terms of power and quality. You aren't planning on running an actual cinema, are you? If you really really want the option to add discrete amps later, go for a receiver with pre-outs such as the V like robert-the-rambler suggested.
My vote, however, is to go with the RX-V you had picked out, or the V if you want 7. It's important to note, you need a seperate amp or at least seperate amp channel for each channel of the 5. That's 5 mono amps or 3 stereo amps or a very expensive purpose-built 5-channel amp for 5. Download some FLAC or other lossless audio to try out. Your music may very well just not sound good because it isn't good. I recommended Polk brand to him when he was still talking about the Klipsch HTIAB speakers, as a quality but not overly expensive brand, with the proviso that I had limited experience with speakers.
Thanks for the tutorial on how make speaker wires look nice. That just seems like too much work and I would rather save the extra 2 dollars or so for a drink after I finish setting up my Home Theater. As for the Banana plugs, why don't you recommend Monoprice's Banana plugs, the customer reviews raves that they are great. A more accurate statement is: Devices marketed as "Computer Speakers" aren't engineered for high fidelity.
PC audio can very well be high fidelity, if done right. My father's Digidesign and Presonus PC-based studio audio recording equipment dispute your statement. OK, I can respect that, but knowing how to wire the speakers doesn't mean anything when you start talking about what kind of architecture you're going to use.
