  1. Up until the other day, the following set up worked great. I connected by HT Omega eClaro Sound card to a Klipsch ProMedia DD5.1 Pre/Pro Decoder (via optical cable) which in turn connected to both a Polk PSW10 Sub via RCA Cable and an ATI AT602 Amp (via RCA cables) which drove 2 Polk Monitor 40 speakers. The remote to the Klipsch stopped working and unfortunately, there is no other way to control the Klipsch without it. The question is what is a good economical fix for this that provides equivalent quality sound and still allows me to control the volume with the PC? -Do I need the Klipsch in the middle? Can I directly connect the sound card to the Sub and AMP? (I realize I need cables that split into 2 RCA Connectors for the AMP) -Is there a device on the market that works the same way as the Klipsch? -Any chance someone knows how to program a universal remote to mimic the Klipsch remote? -Would I be better off purchasing AudioEngine 2+ speakers and connecting those to the sub? -I am open to other ideas.

  2. I bought the ATI. Figured it this way. It's new and has a 7 year warranty. It has great reviews. It was only $250. I can probably return the Adcom and get my $100 back. The price difference is $150. Maybe I can fix he Adcom AMP for $25, but that assumes I can find someone that will test it for free and all that is wrong are the fuses. If the fuses are symptom, that $150 is small. Some folks mentioned that the AMPs I listed were overkill - they may be right, but I am likely to upgrade in the future, so I am OK with a better AMP. Thank you everyone.
  3. bluesman - that was funny. I am OK buying something nice....if I can use it. I am looking into fixing the Adcom, but I have my doubts about it. Going back to the original question, I really just want to know what AMP folks would recommend.
  4. The Adcom AMP is new to me. It is never worked for me. Folks on another forum board are telling me that the AMPs I listed are overkill. Are they?
  5. Rats! I got everything all set up and found out my Adcom GFA-535 does not work, so I need an AMP (not a receiver). My preference is for clean, accurate and tight sound. I mostly use the speakers to play music. I am wondering what makes more sense 1. Get another Adcom GFA-535 or similar on eBay 2. Purchase a Emotiva UPA-200 or Mini-X A-100 3. ATI AT602 for $250 4. Something else What do your suggest and why? Also, I am not quite sure if I need a pre-amp. Adcom said I did, but Emotiva said I did not. If you know, please let me know. Here is the equipment I am using (I pasted links to manuals below). This is connected to a computer and it is critical that the sound be controllable by the computer (hence no receiver).
