Mackie Onyx 800R

For the price I don't think you're going to find too many eight channel preamps like the Mackie Onyx-800R. It's not the cheapest way to get this amount of preamps, but considering the quality, sam...

Harman Kardon Signature Series 2.0 - (A/V Preamplifier)

I bought a Sig 2.0/2.1 combo because my speakers are 25 years old, the size of small coffins, and have low impeadances. They love current. Even with 45 amps of current, the protection circuits in my old HK AVR500 would kick in under heavy (i.e.,...
