    Well its decision making time(saved up all the money) and I still haven't made a decision. So I need some help. The two setups I'm looking at are as followed.

    BA VR-M50

    BA VR-MC

    ---or---

    BA VR910

    VA VR950

    PV 600

    The real difference is the absence of a new sub for the time being. I can live with my old sub until I have the cash for a new one, I am looking for feedback on what kind of 50/50 music/movies setup you think these two systems will be.

    The cost for the two systems as mentioned above is the same.

    Thanks for any advice

    Nick,
    I think the sound from the two different "VR" systems will sound very similar, so you should be happy with both configurations. However, in my opinion ... the VR-Mx's in cherry just look soooo much better. [​IMG]
    And I have to admit, I do enjoy the look on peoples faces when they hear them and say "That sound is coming out of those little things!?" [​IMG]
    I have four VR-M50's, a VR-MC and a PV-1000. I absolutley love them.

    I think I am leaning towards the VR-M50 and VRMC setup. I think they will be better for the music side and your right, they look sooo sweet.

    My only other concern is my amp is only 55x5(H/K AVR320) and the VR-M50's are rated at 89db for sensitivity. I'm hoping I don't have any trouble driving them. I don't think I will.

    Should have everything completed in a month.

    New: Mitsu 46" widescreen HDTV,

    VR-M50's,

    VRMC,

    PV600 sub

    Nick

    PS What stands are you using for your VR-M50's

    Before I got my Outlaw 750 Amp, I drove the VR-Mx's with the 65w/channel Outlaw 1050 Receiver. It did a fine job driving them too. The real reason I bought the 750 is that I got a deal I couldn't turn down and I knew I'd need a seperate amp since I knew I was planning to buy the Outlaw pre/pro. [​IMG]
    I'm using Lovan Sovereign's for the front stands and a pair of no-name (but still heavy) wooden ones for the rears. I went with the Lovan's so that they'd match my A/V rack.

    Are your front stands sand fillable or just heavy? The stands I'm thinking of getting aren't fillable, but are pretty heavy and spiked. Are they going to need a sand fillable stand?

    How is the setup for music? Your room looks to be close to mine in terms of size.

    Thanks

    The stands are fillable, but I don't have them filled. They're quite heavy just as is. I don't believe either the VR-M50 or the VR-M60 need a filled stand. As long as it doesn't resonate, you should be fine.
    Which room? The HT or my new set up (intended for primarily music) upstairs? [​IMG] Actually, both rooms sound pretty darn nice.

    Go for the VRM's. I've listened to the VR950's and the VRM 60's extensively. Both are nice but the VRM's are in a different league IMHO.

    well, nick's question is almost exactly like mine. and i started a thread about it...dang.

    if there was ONE more person in this forum telling me to just go with the vr-m50s instead of vr950, then i would go with the vr-m50s.

    pat maybe you want to sell a pair?
