    Upgrade Yamaha RXA700

    Im not opposed to sticking with Yamaha but I've read Audyssey XT32 outperforms Ypao, also the denon feature-set is more robust. I've also read about some reliability issues on the newer yamahas.

    Upgrade Yamaha RXA700

    Hi Guys, Ive had a RXA700 for about 6 years and its been working just fine. It currently powers 2 energy rc70, a cb20 and cc10. I have a sub, but I keep it off because I live in apartment. For the most part it works fine, but the issue is that I have a 4k tv and cant use it for switching...

    Want to replace Energy Connoisseurs CC10 and CB20

    Ill look into the Elac's though Im a sucker for the Monitor and Focal Aesthetics, emphasis on the Focal. From a matching perspective, has anyone had success pairing any of these speakers? Also, Im concerned the energy rc70's just will be outshined by such a step up. I was curious if anyone has...

    Want to replace Energy Connoisseurs CC10 and CB20

    The story is thus, I have had 2 Energy RC70's that I really like - my rears and center are connoisseur series and cant keep up. I've been looking for an energy rc-lrc, and rc-10(or rc-r's) with no success. Ive started toying with the idea on upgrading starting with the centers and rears? I...

    Recommendations for basic small apartment setup

    I used energy take 5's in my small apartments from college up until a few years ago. Depending on how well sound proofed your apartment is you can use with or w/o a subwoofer. I prefer them with a subwoofer.

    Upgrading Yam Aventage RXA700

    I've had a Yam for about 5 years, its worked out pretty well. The only issues I have right now is that the AV switching is slow and doesnt handle 4k and I often receive audio signal drops and the yamaha is slowish in recovery of the signal. Currently the TV is handling video switching and I...

    Upgrading my Energy cntr/rears

    Is there anyone experienced with the KEF Q600 Center. Looks like a solid speaker. Thoughts on how it would pair with the RC70's. Any thoughts on SVS for Centers and surrounds? I also want to note that I am looking for a speaker that is equally suited to music and home theater.

    Wireless atmos options

    I live in a manhattan apt so its just more to reverse when I move but ultimately it isnt the end of the world as long as I can keep the holes smallish. My question was really theoretical. Planning my progression path right now and I was wondering if anyone had gone that road before or if there...

    Upgrading my Energy cntr/rears

    Thanks so much, the budget is flexible and I figured I would spend the bulk on the center. The CB20's arent as much a concern as the CC10. The murkiness and lack of precision of the speaker annoys me during dialogue. I thought about an RCCLR but I figured if I was going to go down that road...

    Wireless atmos options

    Has anyone toyed with using sonos play1 or play 3's as an Atmos height channel? I've been shying away from getting into atmos because I live in an Apt and I dont want to run the cables in wall and I dont want to see them. Is it possible to use a wireless option?

    Upgrading my Energy cntr/rears

    Hello everyone. I am pondering a few upgrades to my system. I have a Yammy RX-A700, my fronts are energy RC-70's, center is an energy CC10, Rears are energy cb20's. I feel like the RC70's seem to outpace especially the center channel but also to a lesser extent the CB20's. The center to me...

    Bi-Amping Energy RC70's with a Yamaha Aventage RX7xx

    Thanks, I am happy with the sound, until of course I feel like spending more on separates, seems plenty of power to drive the 5 (skipped the sub as I live in a manhattan high rise).

    Bi-Amping Energy RC70's with a Yamaha Aventage RX7xx

    Hello, I just landed a pretty sweet deal on a pair of Energy RC70's. I have them currently set up as the mains in my hometheater. I am wondering if there is any actual value to using the bi-amping feature on my receiver or if Im better off using my old energy takes1's as front presence...

    Monitor Audio or Energy-Upgrading Speakers

    Thanks for your thoughts. I don't disagree on the Itunes library being the weak link; on the plus side I opted for a VBR in the 256 range to get, what I thought, was the best compromise between good sounding music and space. For those who have auditioned both Energy and Monitor Audio, any...

    Monitor Audio or Energy-Upgrading Speakers

    Hello All, I have been pondering upgrading my home theater lately and I wanted to put it out to the forum as to advice and recommendations on speakers. My thought is I want to upgrade my speakers first and then focus in on my electronics later. Im not someone that changes up their setup...
