    Looking to upgrade to a new reciever more channels ATMOS ect.

    Looking at the Marantz SR6011, I know its already an older model, but i like that with an external amp you can go up to 11 channels, Seems to have all of the newer goodies like DTS-X and ATMOS HDCP 2.2 ect. Was just curious is it missing anything that I might regret soon down the road? Got...

    Adding Atmos speakers?

    Do you think they should be front back or center? I will only have room for 2 i think. So if i have them in the center should they point straight down? Thanks

    Help me set up my sub!!!

    Your right Wayne I've actually have two dual SVS set ups in the past but it's been a couple years now since I messed with any Home theater just now getting back into.

    Surround Back Placement Height

    allen, you have your direct radiating speakers on stands behind your couch facing up? So there on there backs facing up towards the ceiling. Why don't you have them facing forward? or am i reading your post wrong? Craig

    Surround Back Placement Height

    My side surrounds are about 6' up also these howerver are dipole design and that's where they should be placed if possible, if my rears were dipoles i'd do the same in the rear but they are direct radiating and i have them on stands so that the tweeters are at the same height as the mains. This...

    Best Paradigm match? (Reciever)

    SO far it seems to be a great combo, the speakers are more open IMO, they sound like they did at the store when I originally audtioned them and the bass response is also better which i missed. I think the Denon is here to stay and thr H/K going into the bedroom. Craig

    Best Paradigm match? (Reciever)

    greggor i find it surprising that you find yamaha a little bright, I has a DSP-A1 in the past running Klipsch legends speaks that were 102db sensative and a lot of people think klipsch are bright speakers but i still like them a lot. I'm hoping it will be a good set-up anyway, I'll be running...

    Best Paradigm match? (Reciever)

    Chris Collins, I want to run 7.1 without adding an external amp because the 230 is just 6.1, also the little dust doors for the toslink cables broke off when i tried to use monster cables!! that really pissed me off now i have to gently lay the dust doors on top of the cables to get them to snap...

    Carver A705x amp ?

    Just wanted some opinions good or bad on this amp, I have a H/K 230 reciever and Paradigm monitor speaks in my system right now, the H/K doesn't have enough power on the occasions that I like to crank it up and I'm afraid I'm going to clipp my Monitor 9's some day. DO you think this amp would be...

    Power amp or new reciver to run my Paradigms?

    I don't like using my sub with music just movies. I liked the way they sounded hooked to the 250 wpc MCA 20 they really put out the bass to me anyway. I've nevr been able to blend a sub well when listening to music sources. Craig

    Power amp or new reciver to run my Paradigms?

    I have Monitor 9, cc-370, and adp-470, but my H/K AVR 230 does not have enough power to make these speaks rock like they did at the dealers hooked up to an Anthem MCA 50. My max budget would be $1500. Any suggestions an a reciever that can push these or a 5 channel amp in my price range? Craig

    Help me tune my sub in!!!!

    I have the disc and the meter, I've done this and still not happy. Yes all my speakers go down to the mid 30's as far as the specs say. So do i set them all to large and 40hz or small and 40hz? Also since i can't set the sub xover on the reciever i assume by setting the others to 40hz that only...

    What reciever with Paradigm monitors?

    Ok I have the Monitor 9, cc370 and adp-370. I heard these hooked up to a Anthem mca 20 and the bass out put was outstanding IMO. Right now i have an H/K AVR 230 and it's just not cutting it power wise, just curious what you guys might be using. Craig
