    Can anyone suggest wich would be the correct sub crossover setting for Paradigm Moni Monitors, CC350, and Atoms? With my previous receiver it was easy (it was fixed). Now, with the HK AVR 525 I have several options. What do you think?

    Thanks,
    Eduardo

    Go to the Paradigm web site and look up the frequency response for your speakers. I can't remember off hand, but I think the lower cut-off for your speakers should be around 50hz. Just set the crossover accordingly.

    Chris and Eduardo,

    I'd love to hear what you guys think of the 525, particularly the triple x-over bass management that's available for the 6/8 channel input for SACD/DVD-A.

    Chris / Eugin:

    The main difference in sound of the 525 compairing it with the Denon 3300 is in the center channel. I think that the sound in the center channel is more clear. With the Denon the sound in the center was muddy. I played a CD that I know very well (Fleetwood Mac - Rumours) and now I hear sounds never heard before.

    Later I played several DVD concerts, and again, heard details not noticed before in the rears.

    No hiss at any level (like the Denon), and until now, no fan noise. Have not tried SACD/DVD-A.

    I am very happy with the HK AVR 525.

    Eduardo

    Eduardo,

    Are you listening to CDs with DPLII or Logic7? If so, it would explain why the center channel sounds clearer. The Denon 3300 did not have DPLII, so that would account for the muddiness that you heard before. Thanks for the comments and keep 'em comin'!

    I am using Logic 7 while listening to CDs. Probably that is why the center channel sounds clearer. The difference makes me smile .[​IMG]
