    1. Hi there, pardon my ignorance... I do feel a bit silly now that I went through your reviews of the various amps. I have to say great write ups. Thoroughly enjoyed them and I also learnt a good deal about HT.

  2. Hello
    Amazing setup. I have owned many lines and items mentioned, Oppo, B&W 803s, Bryston, Rotel and Shunyata. I am curious how you think the SR7010 will fair running my B&W XT8s and 4xXT4s in a 7.1 config. (Not going 3D sound yet).

    I asks this as the XTs are power hungry. 86 sensitivity.

    Any comments appreciated /


    1. Best to give it more power then.. The 7010 is best seen as a processor with amps that are useful to drive the surround channels or atmos speakers.
