Denon X4200W - review - This will probably be the first thing replaced to be honest. It works and sounds great, but getting something new with Airplay 2 built in would be ultra convenient. The new HDMI standards will have me hold off for a bit, but with the price points of receivers with pre-outs dropping, it will eventually happen. The main reason I chose this receiver was the pre-outs and Audyssey MultEQ XT32. At the time I was planning on using external amplification for all of my speakers, but instead decided I was happy with just amping the front two channels for music.
B&W HTM61 Center Channel - just barely fit in my console, but happy with the way they sound for movies and television.
Monitor Audio RSFX - I was using these with my old Monitor Audio speakers, so I thought I might have to change them out. However, they work with the other speakers fine, so I just left them in with the B&Ws. I don't listen to a lot of surround sound music, but they are great for movies.
Elemental Designs A2-300 Subwoofer - review - Another product that has been in my system for years and years. The company isn't even around anymore, but made some great subs for a great price back in the day. They bass response is 18 - 100 Hz. As mentioned in the review, the thing is large, so you have to find a place for it. I still remember when I first got it and I was watching one of the Terminator movies for the first time. I thought the foundation of my house was going to disintegrate with the loud explosions.
Topping DAC10 - Love this little guy. In my main setup, it takes the USB output from my Mac mini and sends it to my Denon receiver over COAX. I prefer this to analog because the room correction benefits that come with feeding it a digital signal. It sounds fabulous!
Apple TV 4 - Mainly use this because of Airplay 2. It allows me to control what is playing from my HomePod (via Siri) and puts the sound over my main speakers. We also like the way it puts lyrics on the screen, which is helpful when you are trying to figure out what they heck the artist is singing.
Project Debut III - I added this to the setup back in 2005! I will listen to this maybe once or twice a week. I keep thinking I should upgrade, but it seems to do the job with the Bellari VP129 that I bought around the same time. I also added a Speedbox, but that has been replaced after it broke, and about a week ago, the second one stopped working, I will just let it be for now. I do think I would like to update it at some point, but not a top priority at the moment.
Oppo 980H - This is a universal player that handles SACD and DVD-As. Still sounds good, but I don't use it very often. I prefer streaming or listening to records.
Nvidia Shield - I run Plex on this device and it allows me to control what is playing via the Amazon Plex app.
Audirvana - This gives me access to my own library, in addition to, Qobuz and Tidal. I am currently subscribed to Tidal (thanks to an offer I couldn't refuse), but I prefer Qobuz.
Apple Music - I have this for everything else... Amazon Dots, AppleTV, Apple Watch, HomePod, etc.
SiriusXM - Mainly for the car, but I will Airplay it when I am in the mood for Luna or Classic Rock.
I will also discuss my other setups in future posts, so stay tuned.
