What do you use ?

Currently using a ONKYO TX-NR709 amplifier via SP-DIF sound card on my PC.


I have a total of 17 speakers connected, 2 powered subs and a normal sub couple of JAMO D155 speakers, Canon S51's and a variety of other speakers connected.

With its bountiful array of connections, the Onkyo TX-NR709 A/V receiver handles just about any playback device you care to hook up. Eight HDMI® inputs give you plenty of scope for high-definition sources, while two HDMI outputs double your display options.

With the new Onkyo TXNR709, HDMI supports pristine lossless audio from Dolby and DTS and video upscaling to stunning 4K resolution via Qdeo™ technology. The Onkyo TX NR709's connectivity is further enhanced by a front-panel USB port for digital link-up of iPod/iPhone, and a wide range of analogue and digital inputs-including S-Video and 7.1 analogue multi channel inputs-for all your legacy components.

The network-capable Onkyo TX-NR709 AV Receiver also brings PC audio and internet radio to your living room, where Audyssey MultEQ® XT calibrates the soundfield to match the room's unique dimensions. Onkyo's graphical OSD and navigation GUI make it easy to browse your content and adjust settings on the fly. Finally, bi-amping capability, 7.2 multi channel pre-outs, and a dedicated phono input provide further flexibility for the demanding audiophile and help propel the Onkyo TX-NR709 to the head of its class.

Nice setup!

For the time being, I'm stuck with a not-so-great Razer gaming headset, with a decent amount of post-processing to make them sound better.




That headset ain't so bad, i sometime have to use my logitec g933 its sounds okish...

Well, I used to have a Turtle Beach gaming headset that sounded WONDERFUL. I was so upset when they broke.

One day I'll have a nicer pair of headphones that are not designed for gaming. Anything is better than a phone speaker though.

Yeah i am currently looking for a dedicated headphones so i can plug in to my AVR but yeah not found any thing as of yet... 😞


But i am sure i will find a quality headset some day this year at least.


If any spotiy's have any suggestions for a decent set of headphones please reach out. 😉


I like DankPod's headphone guide.


Linus Tech Tips and likely other channels by Linus Media Group are working on reviewing headphones and other products with their upcoming LTT Labs project. I believe their headphone reviews will be similar to how RTings does them now.

I am using a Marantz amp connected to a pair of old speakers so I can share my music with family members too

Nothing wrong with a Marantz amp & pair of old speakers - sharing is caring ❤️


Taken my years many to get this setup as i wanted it and because i use my PC every single day i thought it would get the best out of the amp and all my other separates, CD player, DAB Radio, Minidisk player, And graphic eq. etc, its NOT exacly the best off the best but it's good enough for my and my needs and on occasion i push the amp a little to [ 82db + Ref THX ] any louder there is no difference, i was also thinking about doing bi amp or bi speakers as i have 2 more ONKYO amps from when i upgraded each time until i got my latest one...



Thank You For The Information I will have a good read. 😉

17 speakers, you're living the dream!

...I was also unaware Canon made speakers 🤔


When it comes to my setup, the only device in the pile that connects to the internet is my laptop.
I run its audio into Focusrite 2i2, which is connected to my little JDS Labs Atom+, a headphone amp and preamp. This shares audio between my soundsystem (an old Philips MCD288 unit with 2 speakers and 1 overpowering sub) and my headphones.


I love my headphones, they're massive super-comfortable cans by AKG, and the detail, space and clarity they offer keeps me going some days. They're a little bit power hungry - can be used with my phone perfectly fine, but the sub and treble get their depth with the amb. : )

Not really living the dream if i was i would know but thank you for your wonderful comment. 🙂


Yeah i know it was a short lived project kinda but there are many different types of canon speaker on the market today but be careful some are not in perfect condition the pair of vintage canon speakers i have are in very very good condition and also the original stands are with them and i picked them up for a bargain.


Do you have a link for the cans by AKG please.


Yeah a good amp is everything.😊
