I wish it was that easy. That would be like saying anyone can get behind a Maclaren P1 and drive it. Sure, I might get it off the lot and hope I don't hit something, or I can learn how to drive it and take it on a track. Maybe the Revel's aren't a P1 but they could be the Corvette Z06. The Anthem STR Power Amp does not have a DAC 400 watts x 2 (8 ohms); 600 watts x 2 (4 ohms). I already have a theatre room for tv, I'm still working on that system. ryan had suggested I just do a system for music. And a week later that's what I decided. I went from looking at Martin Logan 60's to Paradigm??!! I woulda never even considered what I'm doing had this deal, to good to pass, hadn't presented itself. I will look into Tidal. The sales guy's have been pretty helpful, I'm just trying to pick up as much as I can on this forum. Thanks\n\n\nYou're still overthinking it....it is that easy and car analogies for audio often don't work, like here. When I searched STR amp the integrated model popped up, forgot they had a pre-amp\/amp combo. You'd need the pre-amp in that case rather than the integrated amp (or something else to act as pre-amp with the features you want). Place the speakers in the room well for your listening position and connect things up, it is not rocket science. They're nice speakers, and a powerful amp so don't get drunk and turn it up to eleven.....I personally think Tidal is not worthy due to their use of the bullshit MQA thing, Qobuz and others offer the same file without applying the lossy coded MQA.
