    Pre out timing issue AV amp to Arcam SA30

    I'm trying to use the stereo pre out from my Marantz AV Amp (Nr1710) fed into my stereo Arcam SA30 to power the front L and R channels (into good floorstanders). I'm delighted with the Arcam SA30 for streaming hi-res stereo. I listen to classical and want surround sound for films and SACD...

    Choosing new AV Amp or alternative approach

    I started with a Yamaha surround amp with HDMI that I had upgraded to another because I purchased a projector and needed 2 HDMI outputs. I later purchased an LG 4k OLED TV and found that it wouldn't work with 4K HDR so I now need yet another AV amp. I only really use stereo through my Cairn 4210...

    Compatible AV Amp - Blustream Matrix System

    Hi, Hopefully I've posted this is in the correct place! So I'm a complete novice when it comes to AV systems but I come from a technical background in networking, so how hard can it be?! 😂 I've recently refurbished my house and thought it'd be a good idea to install cat 6 everywhere and...

    Best budget 4K AV amp which allows expansion

    I am upgrading my TV from HD 32in to UHD 4K 49in. My AV amp is the Denon AV 2310, which I will also need to upgrade. My top priority is music - hence the Arcam A28 amp and the MA GS20 speakers. So I need a decent AV amp which would cope with 4K and HDR content but also allow the Arcam to still...

    New media player showing pink screen when going through AV amp

    I recently started a thread asking which media player to get to replace a Mede8er MED600X3D. After a lot of helpful advice I eventually got a Nvidia Shield Pro 2019. As I was doing the setup I noticed that the screen was pink but just thought that that was normal during the setup process. After...

    Denon AV-4308CI Possibly the finest AV AMP from Denon ! Scene the A11SR /A1SR & 3805

    The Simple answer to that question for me is a big fat yes. Outside of Denon Legandry A11SR, A1SR & 3805 in my humble opinion. Up and until recently I owned a Denon X4100W (2015 Model) and to be fair before it became faulty it was a fantastic peace of equipment no real issues and a fine...

    Question Which Android box for Disney + to connect to PJ and AV amp

    So here's the thing: there are a lot of generic android tv boxes out there, and most of them don't do Disney+ as they're not certified by Disney, and a lot of them don't have dolby chips either, so no 5.1. I'm after an Android box to be hooked up to a 4K projector with a separate toslink audio...

    Question How many LFE subwoofer low level connections per AV amp?

    Hello all, I have a Denon AVR-X3600, which has two subwoofer outputs both with level control. I have read that it is fine to connect a Y splitter to each of these, so that I can connect 4 subwoofers. But I thought I should ask Denon first as I do not want to damage the AV amp. Here is their...
