    I am close to making a purchase of Heresy IV speakers and was looking for some amplifier  advice (good quality and fairly priced).  I am leaning towards NAD M10 since it incorporates streaming support.  Look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts...

    I bet that NAD is nice and am very fond of NAD gear, but I really don't think you "need" to spend anywhere close to that amount to get quality sound and feature set.

     

    This Yamaha network stereo receiver gets very high praise for sound quality, feature set, and affordability.

    do I still change the setting on receiver to preamp and just plug the rears in and let it rip ?

    I'm not quite sure. I added an external amp to a Yamaha and it was active upon plugging it in, nothing to switch, but I wasn't powering additional speakers from the AVR.

    I have a preamp processor now but when I was using an Onkyo and then NAD AVR, no changes in the settings were required to activate the preamp section.

     

    Denon AVRs may be different.

    Just came across your post, just purchased a near mint Acurus A125 to mate with my Denon X4700... Interested to hear more about your set up... I am running the same RF5's and RC7, and RS3's for the surrounds 

    @LyleS has not posted in close to 2 years so I will give it a shot.

     

    I have owned many Acurus amps(A100, A100x3, A150, A150, A200, A200, A200x3, 200x3, A250, A250, 200FIVE, 200FIVE), over the last 10 or so years and have been very pleased with their performance and reliability.  Cool running, great bass drive, very detailed.  I have used them for stereo playback as well as currently using an Acurus A200/A200x3/NAD T175HD combo with my RF-63/RC-64/RS-35s combo.  No reason to change a thing anytime soon.

     

    That Acurus A125x5/Denon X4700 combo should bring you much joy.

    My receiver denon x 2700h, and yes I can make it surround but I just wanted the center or  center with front R and L only.

    Is the You Tube TV app on your SMART TV, Roku, Firestick, etc?

    Another question is about MSRP of these speakers.

    I can't find the new price anywhere.

    RB-61------$499.00 in 2009

    RC-10-----$$$

    RW-10-----$500.00 in 2004

    I tried both centers with RB61 and the RC3 matches and sounds better.

    Is that good enough or should I get newer center?

    If it sounds better, then go with it.  If a newer RC-62 or RC-35 comes along at the right price, then get it.

  6. My buddy bought a Monolith 7 channel to drive his RF-7s/RC-7/RS-7s/RB-35s combo in his 4000ft3 HT and that amp is sure impressive.  Neutral, punchy, dynamic. Never close to running out of gas even at high SPLs.   He uses his flagship Onkyo to drive the Atmos channels.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Looking at picking up a pair of Heresy IIs with matching serial numbers.  Seller states that they are 4 ohm.  They are in exceptional condition with factory risers.  He is asking $1200 claiming that they are near mint.  Is it insane to consider offering $1000. 

    With the recently released Heresy IVs now the norm, other versions creep up in price for those who want a pair but just can't see themselves going the new speaker route.  I think on average $1200.00 is kind of steep with $800.00 to $1000.00 being the top out for a "mint" pair with all the fixin's.

    Also, I currently possess a Stereotech 1200 receiver, and I am wondering if anyone has any idea about how that might pair with this set of Heresy IIs.

    Never heard this one but do feel that Heresys(I, II, etc.) are pretty amplifier friendly and have never had any issues mating them with the likes of NAD, Anthem, Acurus, Sansui, Denon, Onkyo/Integra, Cambridge Audio, B&K, Yamaha, etc.

    10"  sub. The sub I'm currently running is the Mirage Nano sub

    Are you sure that the Nano sub is a 10", all I could find was the 8"?

     

    20 hours ago, marcus923 said:

    Just curious if a better sub would be a "nice to have", or a "need to have".

     

    I say yes and at minimum a powerful 12" subwoofer.

     

    What are your room dimensions?

    I have recently upgraded to 820f floor speakers, running off a Yamaha RX-A780 receiver. I was thinking about adding a amp for the towers??

    Is this a good idea?? If so, what amp options should I look at.

    Quality clean amplification is always a good thing IMO.  Look for a high current stereo amp, or 3 channel if you want to drive your center speaker, with maybe 125w/ch with all channels driven.  Plenty of good quality affordable amplifiers on the used market.  Parasound, Anthem, Adcom, Rotel, B&K, Acurus, to name a few that pop up on the local Craigslists.

     

    As suggested by @wuzzzer, maybe have mods move this thread to the technical/modifications forum.

    RF-7III's are not book matched, consecutive serial numbers only means that you got the luck of the draw.  That's not the norm.  It's only meaningful with Heritage.  

    I stand(sit) corrected.:wacko:

     

    Thanks for clarifying that.  The old "assuming" thing.

  11. @Smarsh,

     

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    A little odd because all veneer should be cut from the same sheet and book matched to the other speakers with consecutive serial numbers.

    Are they B Stock which might explain things?

     

    Also, if it bothers you and triggers some OCD, you could always set the speakers outside and give the lighter veneer a little suntan to catch up with the rear veneer.  It does work.  That is what I did to match my new natural cherry speaker stands to my 10+ years old RB-75s.

    Oppo, oppo, absolutely Oppo!

    I own 105, the best multiformat player I ever had, best valute for the money,  IMHO.

    Agree that it is a wonderful all around player in every format and the best universal player I have ever owned but for stereo SACD's, the Yamaha CD-S1000 that I own edges ahead.

    I ended up ordering the Denon DCD-1600NE from eBay. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for the help

    I think you will be very pleased.

    RSW-15 Cherry, still need to test, but assumed to be working, has original box and could be shipped. 95#

    Would love this to match my cherry RB-75s but still have not had my cherry RSW-10d repaired so can't pull the trigger.

     

    Good luck with your sale/sales.
