Hi folks, I'm just getting into the home theater game. I'm about to buy a Plasma screen and since it will not come with speakers I've been doing research on AV loudspeakers/Receivers etc. My brain hurts. Here's the thing: I think I'm looking for the opposite of what many home theater fans are after. When I get home and pop on a movie, I do not want to be assaulted by mega-dynamics or brilliant, piercing sound. I work in sound all day and when I come home my ears are often tired. I certainly appreciate fine sound. It's just that I'm looking to make my AV sound system as unfatiguing, full and smooth as possible. I haven't yet decided on separates or a receiver. However, this is what I'd like, ideally: A reciever that had a warm, full, unfatiguing sound. And one that allowed me to taylor the sound as much as possible. For instance, I think a dynamic range control would be terrific for evening out the assaultive dynamics of soundtracks. For instance: the Perfect Vision review of the Adcom GTP-830 AV receiver was intriguing. The unit was described as warm and unfatiguing sounding, and had a four-level dynamic range control - the greatest dynamic range control I've yet read about in a receiver. Does anyone have experience with this unit? If I end up with a reciever that does not have much dynamic range adjustment, are there any other add-on devices I should know about to address this? Sorry for the long post... Thank you! Rich H.
