Thumbs up Re: Eric's System

Well, what can we all say. I know Andrew`s reviews of the Yamaha`s receivers have been excellent. However, it is hard to believe that the Yamaha ousts the Meridian. But Eric, your happiness ultimately is what is paramount.

I don't know about that. The DSP in the Arcam units is really impressive SQ.

Default Re: Eric's System

I really don't like receivers in a home theater! Having an individual power supply in each separate is enough of a deciding factor. I like my sound LOUD and good separates allow for a wide clean dynamic range. I really can't believe the Yamaha sounds better than the Meridian separates. I didn't notice any wall treatments for room acoustics and this is more important than changing components. In your case maybe you would have a different experience between Meridian and Yamaha with wall treatments and different speakers. Of course I don't know but it would have been worth a try.

If I had to buy a receiver I would get the Lexicon. Over priced but as far as I'm concerned the best home theater receiver on the market

I visited a friend who lives in San Diego in a mutimillion $ home. He had a fabulous home theater with Runco projector. When I asked to see his equipment I almost passed out because he had this crummy 7.1 receiver. When I asked why he replied "my guy is an electrical engineer and he said that's all I need". Needless to say the picture was the best but the sound sounded like ****.
