SPL meter (not only for HT):
|Comments on HT System:||I have intagrated my audio and A/V system without the result of the A/V ruining the audiophile audio performance. |
The receiver is working as a HT processor and as amp for the surrounds only (giving them 2x180 W/rms).
The center is bi-amped getting 200 W/rms, the bi-amped mains are getting 360 W/rms each. This is not according to the book, but it sounds very good, so it is good for me.
