do you need pass through for home cinema?
you could probably come and hear mine if you want to hear the difference?

cyrus straightline Amp?

i’ve never heard one of these, i heard the cyrus 111 but it didn’t quite float my boat.
this is supposed to be a better sounding, and stripped down version.
Is it as repairable as the one and two. i don’t see many around.
memories welcome.

Re: PMC Fact 12

Have you managed to tear yourself away from listening to music through them yet? 8) Of course, now you have speakers of this reference calibre, thoughts will no doubt, tur...

Quite frustrating because my 24/96 file of peter gabriel 3 did have the right tags i even understood...

Re: AV receiver recommendations sub-£1000 ?

also my sister has a denon 1907 you could try and see if that works as a pre amp, it doesn’t have the latest formats but sounds great in dolby digital etc..
just pay for postage, if it does a good job keep it?
