Trying to convert me to the dark side are we. must resist the lower price on the yammie...lol

thanks for the post libbert.
i'll definately take a look at the yamaha 2500 on ebay to see what kind of a deal i can get. It is likely to be 150 dollars cheaper. Very tempting.

1. Should have plenty of power in most situations; very little difference from the 3805.

2. Sure; two front speakers.

3. Yes; run them in parallel(if impedance permits)using A+B on the main speaker channels, or assign the 6th and 7th back surround channel amps(if not being used for back surround speakers)to power the mains in another room.

4. You should make use of all your speakers, even with 2-channel source material. 2 channel material contains(in varying degrees)ambience which was recorded coming from the sides and back, not front. Processing such as DPLII and Logic 7 does a good job of extracting this ambience from the front and sending it to the surrounds where it belongs.

In reply to:

4. Now a day, when listening to simply music, do you use only two speakers or all 5.1 speakers?? I am totally new to ht theater and what it can do.


There are two, very dedicated, camps when it comes to this issue. There are many who prefer to listen to music in two channel only, considering it the "purest" way to listen, hearing the music the way it was intended to be heard by those who recorded it. This particular camp is further divided into those with larger speakers with good bass response who prefer to listen to two channels without a subwoofer, and those with either bookshelves or floorstanders who feel the sub really adds something worthwhile.

The second camp is those who find listening to everything in multichannel to be a more enjoyable experience. Like JohnK, I'm firmly ensconced in this group (OH GAD! Again, I find myself agreeing with a graduate from "that school up North," and a lawyer to boot. Have I no shame? ).

My advice to you is, experiment with all options to see which you prefer. There is no "right" or "wrong" when it comes to this issue. Just do what floats your boat.

Am I nuts (only a rhetorical question, so watch it!), or are there some posts missing from this thread? Rick, I swear that last night I saw a post by you, in this thread, saying you hoped you had not "put me on the spot" by suggesting blackorp ask me about the subs I've owned. Blackorp followed that post with one, indeed, asking me about my subs, and I posted a reply. I don't see those posts now. Am I merely having a "senior moment," or have I finally gone over the edge? (no wise cracks from the peanut gallery, now! )

Whew! Only a senior moment, thank heaven. Thanks Rick. You gotta stop making the same post in different threads. It's very confusing to old people.

Yep, I do believe this would indeed be considered a very 'senior moment' Jack.

C'mon! A little slack here. Both threads started by Blackorp, and two nearly identical posts suggesting the same thing. Anybody could make that mistake. Well................OK...................anybody over 55. For pete's sake! Rick is MUCH younger than I, and he's already repeating himself. By the way, aren't there some posts missing in this thread?

Rick, make fun all you want (I hope you know that I honestly don't mind. I can see the humor in it, too. It's nothing I have any control over, so I don't worry about it much). However, you should be aware that you're making fun of your own future. Your time will come, and sooner than you think.
