    Need 2.1 Stereo / Dac Recommendations

    Thank you so much. From what I am seeing I think the sub out is just becoming to much problem for my simple needs. Maybe Optical to Dac to CD input on the Integrated amp and take the speaker level from A to the Paradigms and from B channel to the sub speaker level input...

    Need 2.1 Stereo / Dac Recommendations

    I would like to avoid the "pay significantly more" part. Not that I am trying to be super cheap, but still its a gaming pc I listen to music on :)

    Need 2.1 Stereo / Dac Recommendations

    This is really just for computer audio but the gear leans more toward this crowd, so I thought I would ask here as well. I have decided to go with a older integrated amp (onkyo, sansui, kenwood, technincs etc: etc: ) looking for ones with pre out - main in connections so I can have more...

    Need a Stereo/DAC recommendation

    I have decided to go with a older integrated amp (onkyo, sansui, kenwood, technincs etc: etc: ) looking for ones with pre out - main in connections so I can have more options on subwoofer hook up. I found a Techincs SU-V98 local I can get pretty cheap...

    Need suggestions

    Neither of those got very good reviews. Unless the looks of those cases is more important to you than cooling I would not get either of those. Case looks are so subjective though. What some people love other think is flat out fugly. I tend to narrow down my choices then watch a ton of reviews...

    Lian Li 011 Dynamic Razer Edition case fan attachment

    Not very noisy at all. I am running 7 of the deepcool fans which even at max speed they are only 27 dba but they spend a large majority of the time @600 rpm. The other 3 are the Corsair ML120's on the rad which with a 360 rad they dont ever spin up very fast.

    Fan Orientation and Ugliness.

    Been using the deepcool aio's in a couple builds for a couple years with no issues at all. The one you linked to is the captain series and the early versions of that model did have a few issues, but they resolved them pretty quick. Also just put another Deepcool in the a new build I just...

    Need an amp. New little one or a "vintage" receiver?

    My setup is a Harman Kardon 10" 200 watt powered sub and pair of Paradigm Atom v.5 speakers. Currently being driven by a old harman kardon AVR144 (40 watt x 2) receiver which I have grown to hate in just the 2 days of trying it. So I have started the quest to acquire something I will hate...

    Hoping somebody knows these brands M&K vs Paradigm

    Got a Harman Kardon 10" 200 watt for a pretty decent price. At least cheap enough that if I dont like it I wont feel bad upgrading down the line. Thank you for all the advice and input from you and the others, I really appreciate it.

    Trying to follow your advice and get a sub. I ran across a Paradigm pdr-8 v4 for 50 bucks. Do you think an 8" would be big enough or should i keep looking for a 10-12?

    Hoping somebody knows these brands M&K vs Paradigm

    I am not sure which way to go and was about to drive people nuts with yet another thread 😃 I am not sure which would be the "better" way to go. I would like to be in the sub $200 range for an amp. But not sure if i should pick up a little dac and then an old stereo (like a 90's technics...

    Thank you so much. Ended up with the Paradigms for 50 bucks. They sounded really good hooked up to my HT AVR. Now I just need to find a integrated amp with optical in for my computer :)

    Thanks folks. Listened to both and ended up with the Paradigm V.5 for 50 bucks. Now I need a amp with optical in for my computer :)
