Got a Pioneer VSX-9900S Flagship model receiver

Currently have a mix of speakers, 3 PolkAudio Bookshelf speakers, fronts and center, then Bose for sides and rears (7 total)

Speakers render bass well enough I took the optional huge subwoofer out

Kenwood KD-2070 Turn table with an Oyster cartrige/stylus

Pioneer CT-W601R Dual Casette Deck - Need to take this apart and figure out why 1 deck is slow. Probably gunked up grease or bad belts.

Comcast/Motorola DCT6208 HDDVR cable box

TiVo Premiere XL

Playstation 3 for Blu-Ray

50 Inch LG Plasma

And inputs into my computers for amazing sound - An all analog sound system :wub:

P7260283.jpg

(Cleaned up, this was when I first got the turn table and tested it, actually rebuilt my entire entertainment center so it looks much more organized.)

P7260279.jpg

Love this reciever, out of all the sound systems I've heard in customer's houses, I feel mine has a rich clean sound to it.

IM SURE IT SOUNDS GREAT BROTHER AND IM AN OLD AUDIO PILE FREAK.. BUT WHAT YOU HAVE WOULD SOUND MUCH BETTER

WITH A TWO CHANNEL AMP FROM THE LATE 80'S EARLY 70'S ...THE SOUND WOULD BLOW YOUR MIND.. AN UPGRADE ON YOUR CARTRIDGE WON'T HURT EITHER IF YOUR REALLY INTO VINYL ...BELIEVE ME I BEEN THERE.. :notworthy:

You are correct, but the high current amp in the Yamaha is fairly good. I actually still have my first stereo receiver-a mid 80's top of the line Pioneer with non-switching Class AB amps and huge toroidal transformer. I last used it a few years ago when my previous receiver died. It sounded very good.

YOU CAN TAKE A OLD SCHOOL 25X2 WATT RECIEVER AND SOUND BETTER THAN A 200 WATT SURROUND SOUND AMP BY FAR...

LOOK ON EBAY AND SEE FOR YOUR SELF WHAT OLD SCHOOL GOES FOR ,MARANTZ,SANSUI,ROTEL,NAD...ETC...

It's 125 Watt/Ch at something like 0.0008 THD. I mowed many lawns to buy it.

Why you yelling at us? :ohnoes:

When I want true analog sound, I go put my albums on my old Magnavox.

IMG_0364.jpg

Tube powered, rebuild turntable, with factory NOS cartridge. Sounds amazing. But the Pioneer with it's current setup is good.

Some company actually recommended the Oyster to me, I rebuilt the Kenwood... That was actually a garbage pick. The audio leads were broken. I just ran new RCA cables/Ground.

I am happy with my current setup :)

As a side note to this, my recent efforts on my system have been in the area of convenience. The ability to pull up a movie or music of my choice in (almost) any room of my home is handy in my book.

My dad has an old NAD stereo in their basement somewhere. I remember it would crackle and buzz for a minute until it warmed up, sounded really good though.
