For me it has never stopped.  Rather it becomes less frequent and more expensive. Maybe I have reached or passed the point of diminishing returns

Home Theater Audio / Re: Considering a receiver

Thanks all for the feedback.  It seems Denon will be too frustrating for family and there may be a slight trade off in sound vs simplicity between Marantz and Yamaha.  I believe Marantz is owned by the group that owns McIntosh.  If go, is there any technology tricks down?

Home Theater Audio / Considering a receiver
« on: April 04, 2018, 08:09:36 PM »
I may be in need of a medium power (100w/ch +/-), high quality full featured 5.1 channel home theater receiver.  New or recently used is acceptable.  It needs to be able to handle 4k switching, but doesn't need a gang of inputs-a couple of HDMI and a few high level audio/base band video will suffice.  It doesn't need two zone capabilities either.

Does anyone have a favorite, or a suggestion?  I am aware of Denon and Marantz, but haven't kept up with the rest (I don't read the A/V rags).  I have always had A/V separates, so this is a new adventure for me.  Reliability and ease of use are as important as anything else; this is for a family room TV to generally be operated by everyone but me.

Adorable child and nice stand.  We used to hang 'tables form the basement ceiling rafters to work under them.  Your attend is a better way.

Welcome TH,  Once you decide about any particular piece of gear of interest, I am sure someone on this Forum and be of help.  I am also located North and some of our musical tastes overlap.  Always open for a listening session

Reference Recordings are outstanding, IMO.  My best recorded/engineered CDs are Reference and I have none I don't like. Their CDs match or best my best vinyl listening experiences

Dating homeless women is great.  At the end of the evening, you can just drop them anywhere

My three favorite Elton John albums have always been Honky Chateau, Mad Man Across the Water and 11-17-70,  Yellow Brick road is great; however for me it marks a transition to his later style(s).
