Connoisseur series? I took the plunge last night (won't get it til Tues./Wed., it's on order). Auditioned it with some Boston Acoustics VR bookshelf (too bright). I've listened to a number of speakers (too many to keep track of) and I'm down to the following Monitor Audio Bronze series (listened to B4 floorstanders, but not with Arcam equipment) Acoustic Energy Aegis Evo series (will soon audition) Energy Connoisseur series (liked the C-5, CR-3, CC-3 combo w/Arcam setup) I'm adding the speakers in 4-6 months (will make do with my bargain basement set for now). The Monitor Audios are 6ohm except for the centre which is 8ohm. As the Arcam has a switch for impedence, will the 4/6ohm setting damage an 8ohm rated speaker? I like the Monitor Audio B4 a tiny bit better than the Energy C-5 but the Energy centre CC-3 is a lot beefier than the Bronze centre. Moreover, I haven't listened to the Monitors with Arcam equipment (no nearby dealers). Anyone around here have any listening experience with Arcam and any of the above speakers?
