    Hello folks:

    I am presently running a 4B-ST for my mains and a 9B-ST for my center and four surrounds. All speakers are MartinLogan (Ascents, Theater center, Aerius i's and Scripts).

    I am considering upgrading to either a 14B-ST or 7B-ST's for my mains and moving my 4B-ST to center channel duty (and bi-amping).

    Does anyone have any experience having compared both? The specs are virtually identical, so one would think the "pair" of 7B's would be more expensive -- not so. So, for the extra $500.00 bucks, what will the 14B do that the 7B's won't....?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

    Herb.

    Hi Herb,

    I was considering the 4B-ST for my reQuests, I am looking for a used one. Do you think the 4B-ST is running out of juice with your speakers?

    IMO, the 7B's offer the advantages of channel separation (being mono's) and shorter speaker cabling/placement issues, all else being equal. I personally went with the 7B's.
