    Secondary system has finally been completed.

    My secondary system has now been completed from a speaker purchase POV. It started with a trade of a Blackberry Torch for a pair of original PSB Alphas to be used as my left/right mains. I already had a sub, a PSB Subsonic 5 which was replaced by a Rythmik LV-12R in my main system. This put me on the road to complete the center and surround speakers.

    I picked up PSB 100c center channel in July for $75 and a pair of B Tech stands for $20 to support the Alphas. I picked up a pair of Alpha Mites and another pair of stands for $140. I now have two complete systems.

    What's cool is the 2nd system is built on left overs and used components found on Kijijji, a site selling used everything .

    I finally had a chance to use the secondary system with all speakers in place and I'm happy with the sound given the non optimal speaker placement of the surrounds. However, I will need to move my DVD player from the bedroom to the secondary system to get Dolby Digital out. The DVD/VHS combo player has a digital coax line out and the Technics only accepts the fibre optic input (forgot the name for it at this point).

    I've located only one review on the AVR..and its a Technics SA-DX930. I'm looking for SA-DX940 although the two look identical. I recall one from Home Theater magazine stating thatthey were impressed with DX940 power delivery... but I cannot find that review.

    S &V Magazine complained about its lack of dynamics but I see from the power measurements that it did not do all that bad.

    From Sound and Vision Magazine,

    HT Labs Measures: Technics SA-DX930
    The above measurement shows that the SA-DX930's left amplifier channel, with two channels driving 8-ohm loads, began clipping at 0.009% distortion and 93.1 watts. The amp reaches 0.1% distortion at 117.4 watts and 1% distortion at 140.9 watts, as shown above. Into 4 ohms, the amplifier begins clipping at 109.2 watts and reaches 0.1% distortion at 144.9 watts and 1% distortion at 186.9 watts.
