  Hi I am interested in possibly going  with a full seaton 7.1 system down the line and I am wondering what recievers people are using for their Home theatre setups?




Thanks

For 7.1 am currently using an Integra DHC-9.9 with Audyssey Pro enabled. Am extremely happy with it. Being fully balanced out it would work great with Mark's powered speakers I reckon. Am now actually in the process of changing to an Integra DHC-80.1 for the extra outputs. You might end up getting a 9.2 setup rather than a 7.1

I have a 7.0 Seaton setup (currently waiting on my 2 subs).  I am running an Anthem D2v.

For my part I'm just awaiting to receive my Anthem Statement D2V processor separate with a P5 amplifier. I've searched for a long time and listened to and studied lots of materials and different gears. Basicly for a HT system, at least IMHO, nothing beats Anthem! So hopefully together with Mark's great stuff (I'm currently planning to build a system with 5 Catalysts and 2 submersives, just as soon as the new veneer finishes are ready to be shipped) it'll be a KILLER system! My 60" KRP-600 M is dying to show what it's worth with that system

running Integra 80.1
been real happy with the unit -
independent dual sub out is great feature
and will tell you now - if you get one seaton sub you will soon
be wanting 2

and remember also that all seaton speakers are self powered 
so will not be needing any amps

I have a Parasound Halo C2.  A bit old but it fits the bill for now.  Since I am not using Marks speaker I am also using a Bryston 4b-ST and a Bryston 5b-ST for my amps.
I simply love this stuff.

Integra DTC9.4 with a few different amps. Nothing to write home about though...no Audyssey, just my old n busted DBX DriveRack260.
This is not a sig. This is a duck. Quack.

LOL! Good point! The thing is that I put an order for Anthem D2v + P5 before I actually decided whether to go with Catalysts or not. And the combo is so well joined and powered up that I never even considered cancelling my order no matter what. I'm sure I'll soon find some other use and some different speakers to power them up with my P5!

Onkyo PRSC 886.  Thinking about either the PRSC 5507 or Integra 80.1 as possible replacement.

Hi Humyt

What noticeable improvements did you perceive from 886 to 4810?  Please share and thanks.

Kenobi - between the 5507 and the 80.1 I guess you are aware that currently Onkyo's 5507 does NOT allow for tuning with the Audyssey Pro Installer Kit. For some people (like myself) that's a determining factor in the purchasing decision.

Also think the Denon 4810 is a great AVR and worthy of considering even as just a Preamp.

Hi Kenobi,

I used the 4810 purely as a pre/pro just like the 886. What initially drove me to change to the Denon was Denon Link 4 & Audyssey DSX but I have since noticed the Denon is much more musical than the Onkyo, very apparent when watching concert Blurays.An added bonus is the much faster speed in Audyssey calibration & calculation. For movies, it is a toss-up depending on the type of movies, warmer sound for the 886 & cleaner sound for the 4810.
