I now understand how separates work, how to connect them, what their advantages are and their flexibility. Now, I need to read up on selection and options. I haven't been doing much HT research for the past few months, and that in addition to a new pc has lost me all my favorites. Can you fellas point me to some good reads, retailers, official sites (ie: www.rotel.com), etc. I'm having difficulty finding all the selection available and I don't want to leave any brands out. I really want to research this. Thanks for any help.
