    What Speakers Do You Own?

    Polk Monitor 10B's from 1986 They will soon serve as surrounds when I get B&W 604's and matching CC and a Marantz 8300 next spring

    Correlation between volume and power

    All things being equal, does more wpc result in better or clearer sound at low volumes (i.e., you can still carry on a conversation). In other words, at the same low volume level, will a 120 wpc receiver sound better than say a 80 or 60 wpc receiver.

    Which Marantz Would You Buy

    Plus, according to pictures i have seen, the 8200 is made in Japan, while the 7200 is made in China (as i assume the 7300 will also be) I am in the same stituation, i can pick up the 8200 for $1100 - $1200 or wait for 8300 this spring. Any major reason to wait for the 8300?

    Heard B&W for the first time WOW!!!

    That's exactly the same post I was going to make 2 weeks ago but my herniated disc sidelined me for a while. First I was looking to get Paradigm Monitor 7s, then listened to the Paradigm Studio 60s and said WOW I gotta have these. Then, after listening to the Paradigms, I took a 20 min. ride...

    VSX-47TX..... Should I?

    I would be a bit concerned with reported shutdown problems the Pioneer 45 is having. I witnessed it in person last week at a local shop, the 45 was driving Paradigm studio 60's

    1K to spend on mains and center, please help

    Thanks for all the responses. Just got of the phone with a B&W dealer and he recommended the Athena ASF-2 at my price point. He said they compare well to the Monitor 7's. Never heard of this line. Are they any good? I have thought about heading into Canada and picking up some studios. I'm...

    Jack_Geo: Can you recommend any other shops in the Cleveland area. I live in Canfield (near Youngstown) and there are no hi-fi shops to speak off, which basically leaves BB and CC. I have been to Audio Craft in Fairlawn since they are close to where I work (Barberton). Much appreciated.
