OK - The second sub is installed, calibrated, and working. Initial impressions = yawn. Did I really spend $700 for THIS? Actually, I think that the single sub in the corner sounded better than the two of them along the equipment wall. Potential is

The limiting factor will be your playback environment. The question of "is X worth $2000 more than Y" is no for most people. To really get that upper tier performance acoustics becomes very important. Acoustics not as in absorbers (which

Hi, Yes I saw those qs and the VP50 but there too old. I see the VP180 and am thinking about it. Not, sure but I may take it as a temp situation as watching movies in stereo is getting to me. Volumn up , volumn down, volumn up and it goes in circles

7800 ! if you're worried about headroom, try changing the X-over frequency to 60 or 80 Hz. giving that extra work to the sub will alleviate the demands on your Arcam amp and will have the same effect as buying a more powerful amp.

If you do the Toronto trip, hit the aquarium...it's located very close to the base of the CN Tower/Skydome, it's pretty amazing. Also nearby is the historic Brewery District for doing some 'sampling' and having lunch. I'd suggest Mill St. Brewery as

I thought about the 4 out of 7 channel aspect. My amp has separate 1.5 kva transformers for the left and right channels with the center channel drawing from both. So I believe you are right when you say it's more like 300w 4 channels driven, and that

I think I can chime in as I live about 45min from Niagara Falls, so I know the area very well. I'd agree with Shawn that Niagara is a beautiful place to visit if you have never seen it. It has some lovely parks and lots of the really cheesy touris

My room is larger than yours @ 16.5'x17'x 8' ceilings. Effectively your amp has 20w more than mine by Arcam's specs. I had never gotten my receiver up above -10 db before it simply just started to sound excessively loud. Once I did go up to -5 db
