    I am in the process of upgrading my left-right front speakers and the Veritas 2.4 catched my ears and eyes. I think the price is right also about $2,100 for the pair. I have heard a lot of good things about these speakers. My receiver is the Marantz 8200 and I have no idea if this is a good combination. The store that I heard the speakers at don't carry the Marantz line. Maybe somebody here in the forum can help me out?.

    I read in another forum that the whole Verita line is a piece of crap.

    What forum was that? The Veritas line is very highly regarded.

    IMO, great speakers, and very well balanced.

    v2.4's are wicked good. However they are power hungry speakers. Your Marantz 8200 should suffice. Don't be scared to crank them up, that's when they really will sing to you.

    They were talking about problems with the woofers freezing, I had never heard of that problem before. Some people say the manual states that you have to listen to these speakers at moderate volumes for the first hundred hours or so in order to get the best performance out of them, Maybe some people did not follow these rules.

    Brian, On the AVS forum there's a couple of comments about this problem and some more on audio review. The mayority of comments is very much in favor of the Veritas. My main concern is What good a combination the Marantz 8200 receiver and the Veritas 2.4 speakers make?.

    [​IMG] That's a long way from "The whole Veritas line is a piece of crap" but I'll let that one drop.
