    At what point(s) should we consider moving beyond just an AVR?

    No apologies needed - I think we all enjoy a fun meandering conversation Josh :biggrin: In my case I'm not strictly-speaking limited on volume but I also want to keep my good hearing so I don't usually listen to anything ultra loud. Creeping my way towards 40 but I can still hear just about...

    At what point(s) should we consider moving beyond just an AVR?

    Ah yeah thank you John - that makes sense. My only experience so far is with these Yamaha NS-777 which are I believe 89db sensitivity but sounds worlds better being driven by that Outlaw 5000x amp instead of the RX-A3080 AVR's internal amps. Tentatively I was wanting to go with full SVS Ultra...

I do have a UMIK-1 but haven't had time to sit down and figure out how to use...

    Dave is there a benefit to used speakers vs new (other than monetary of course)? Forgot to mention I do have quite a lot of room treatment but again the acoustics of the room being an addon up on stilts and just not very well insulated end up with a lot of outside noise coming in which I can't...

    At what point(s) should we consider moving beyond just an AVR?

    Just curious what everyone's takes are on this. Specifically I'm asking as we get into more advanced/audiophile territory with our home theater goals at what point or points does it make sense to move beyond powering everything with only the AVR? When would you add a separate amp for at least...
