    OK folks. I need some feedback on an upgrade I’m looking at. I’m currently running a set of PSB speakers (5T’s, 9C, 2B’s) with a Denon 80W 5.1 receiver (it’s been great). I have a chance to pick up some Acurus separates as follows: ACT/3 Pre-processor (5.1ch) A100x3 amp (100W x 3) A100...

    CRT replacement on RPTV...2 WEEKS?
