Questions: 1. do i need a panamax? can i get away with just a surge protector? if i need one, which type of panamax...i've been given inconsistent advice from salespeople. (magnolia) 2. as for subs, they recommended martin logan dynamo at $600. Any recommendations? prices? websites, etc?? 3. Whats a good remote and price? they recommended a very expensive one. Thanks.
