    HK520 and 6.1

    I'm considering setting up a rear center. I was thinking of reassinging one of the internal amps to power it. Now I know the HK520 is setup to run 7.1, but my wife is already freaking out about another speaker in the family room. So would it be safe to assume that if I just hook up one more...

    HK 520 or HK 525

    I currently have a HK520 that I'm using as pre/pro. I like the fact that I can reassign the internal amps which I have done to power my Rockustics. I can re-assign 2 more amps if I decide to go to 7.1. I paid $399 from CC (open box) and the unit has worked flawlessly except for a problem with...

    I bought an HK-520.

    I purchased a 520 from Circuit city last week. Ended up paying $399 for an open box. I've used it the past week and so far everything works fine. I re-assigned the front amps to run Rockustics that I have in the backyard via the multisource. I have an external amp driving everything else. So I...

    Harmon Kardon 320

    Just came back from Circuit City. 6th ave Electronics has a b&m store real close to the CC where I purchased the 520 from. Anyway, I explained that I could have gotten a new one from 6th ave for the same $499 that I paid for the open box. CC credited my card for $100, so I bought the 520 for...

    Harmon Kardon 320

    I just bought a floor model 520 from CC for $499. They had 2 on display, one that was being used, another that was just sitting there unplugged for 9 months. It sure appeared new, Not a acratch on it. Had all the accessories, but no box. build date of Oct 2001. I wanted the ability to return...

    Is it worthwhile to upgrade to prologic II?

    I currently have a Denon 2801. So I'm kind of stuck with the original prologic for DSS or cable. No other options. I'm considering the HK 520 or Denon 3802. Actually that brings up another question, since the reciever would act as a pre-amp rendering the internal amps useless, would a 2802 sound...

    looking to upgrade receiver

    Thanks Paul. The sound quality of the NAD was impressive, but it doesn't have a multisource option. This can be overcome with a speaker a/b switch tho. The HK 520 is tempting. At $475 it seems like a no-brainer. I was on the 950 list for quite sometime, and Steve Simon was kind enough to give me...

    Is it worthwhile to upgrade to prologic II?

    How much of a difference does prologic II make for everyday tv shows, such as Enterprise? Will I hear more surround effects? I'm using Direct TV, so my signal is digital. Also, how would movies not broadcast in DD sound with prologic II. Would it be a big improvement or hardly noticable? I...

    looking to upgrade receiver

    Thanks for the feedback guys. :rolleyes: I've been seriously looking at the HK 520 also. Can be had for about $475 and seems to have most of the options that I want, including preamp ins. Anybody using it as a pre-amp? So now I'm considering the follwing: HK 520 $475. Denon 3802/1082...

    If I buy a NAD T762, should I sell my amp?

    I've seriously looked at the Outlaw 950. As a matter of fact I was on the list for quite sometime and didn't pull the trigger when it was my turn. I've often wondered if the sound quality of the Outlaw is superior to the NAD. Plus with the NAD I do get 5 (t752) or 6(t762) more amps. If I get the...

    If I buy a NAD T762, should I sell my amp?

    I'm seriously considering purchasing either a NAD T752 or T762(as soon as they start shipping). I'm currently running a Denon 2801 into a Sherbourn 5/1500a. My speakers are B&W CDM7 se(mains), CDMC (center)and B&W Rock Solids for rears. I have a SVS 25-31 PCI sub. I've listened to the T752...

    Worst sounding receiver brand??

    I had a Yorx, bought it in 1982. It came with speakers. I think one of the drivers were painted on. Had a built in digital clock. The seconds became 1/100 of a second, minutes became 1/10 of a second and hours became 1 second. Ran like that for years. Sounded horrible, but I didn't know the...

    Has Anybody purchased the new sherbourn 1500a 200x5 amp...?

    I have it. Its being fed by a Denon 2801 (for now) and is powering B&W CDM7's. Awesome amp. Its a keeper!!!! Home Theater Magazine just reviewed it this month and Widescreen Review gave it an excellent review last year. If you can get it for under $1500, then I would go for it.

    OK, So now I'm an SVS believer

    After listening to Steve Simons' HT with his twin SVS's(I actually went there to audition the Outlaw 950), I decided to pull the trigger and purchase the 25-31 PCI Bstock. It arrived last Friday, just when SVS announced the summer sale. Unfortunately, SVS didn't honor the new pricing, but did...

    It's a small world....

    It is a small world. As I posted awhile back, Steve Simon (HTF Administrator) just happens to be a neighbor of mine and was kind enough to let me audition his HT. Awesome system :) Hey Steve, because of that HT demo, I ended up ordering a SVS 25-31 PCI. I'm expecting it to arrive any day...

    To amp or not to amp that is the question?

    I was powering B&W CDM7SE and CDMCse speakers with a Denon 2801(current receiver, will be reassigned to backyard speakers and subwoofer duty once the 950 comes). It sounded ok, better then anything I've owned previously, but I was curious what an amp would do to improve things. A local...

    SVS 25-31 powered by a Denon 2801

    Tom, The PS1000 will probably be sold, so the SVS 25-31 CS will be a sole performer. The Denon 2801 is 90 watts at 8 ohms. The sub will be the only thing being driven. The rockustics are outside and will remain on the Speaker 'B' inputs. Since only one channel will be used, does the...

    SVS 25-31 powered by a Denon 2801

    The room is 13'x20'. The home theater is set up with the sitting area 13' from the TV and speakers. The room is enclosed by 3 sides. The fourth is open and leads into the kitchen which is roughly 15' feet away and that opens for another 15'. So I guess on the left side I have roughly 30' of...

    SVS 25-31 powered by a Denon 2801

    Ok, I'm on the list for the Outlaw 950 which will be powered by a Sherbourn 5/1500a. This frees up my Denon 2801 to power a pair of Rockustic Pavorockies for the Pool area utilizing the second zone that the 950 provides. I was also thinking of getting the SVS 25-31CS and powering it with the...
