OK, There has been a lot of posts relating to this that I have seen, but I just wanted to get some additonal and more specific opinions. I am currently watching movies on a Mits WS-55413 and am using a Denon 3802 to power some less than optimal speakers. Cerwin Vega center (6 or 7 years old, I think I originally paid about $170) and two Technics 12" 3 way floorstanding speakers and a REALLY overworked Costco sub that goes, yes, folks, ALL THE WAY DOWN to 42Hz! With no problem. Please note excessive sarcasm. When scenes in movies start getting loud, I am a total remote in hand volume changer. Mostly for my GF's sake ("Turn it down!"). However, when I am at the local theater or in a demo room at the local HT store, I can play LOUD and my reaction is "That sounds good!" However, at my house, my reaction is "Ouch! My ears! Harsh!" My speakers are not distorting, they just sound strained. I am planning in the next couple weeks to upgrade to B&W's 700 line with 704 's in the front and the 700 series center, and an SVS PB2+. OK, here's my quesiton. Will my new setup allow me to play at louder levels (-20 to -10) with less ear bleeding? I know this may be an obvious question, but I would love to feel confident that my money invested will allow me to have a system that I can CRANK and say "Wow!" rather than covering my ears. Thanks, guys.
