    Your Top 3 Receivers and Why?

    Get a Marantz and call it a day. Id recommend the 7011 if you can find it under 1k. I have the 7012 and it is phenomenal and has tons of options for customizing the sound to exactly what YOU like. I have used Pioneer elite in the past and although a great receiver it didnt sound as good to ME. Which at the end of the day is the real point with all these posts. You will have to listen to the receiver in your house with your speakers to see if you will like it or not...All the brands mentioned are excellent choices you just have to figure out which one works best for you.

    So what happened to all those damaged Adorama Speakers?

    Great for a hidden center channel to match my stereo pair....

    What is this grill cloth?

    Photo is a little fuzzy. Is that lambswool?

    Looking at speakers and receivers and I’m lost

    Always at least try a listen with Marantz receivers. They pair extremely nicely with Klipsch speakers

    How much difference would an amp make?

    My Marantz SR7012 sounds great quiet or loud. For music or movies. Paired with Forte III. I keep deliberating adding a 300-500 watt amp but just don't feel like I'll notice a huge difference. I had a McIntosh MC275 VI that I had to remove due to placement limitations and only noticed a slight loss in the low end but nothing earth shattering...

    Last price reduction. $4000 firm plus shipping if not picking up locally (Rocklin,CA 95677) otherwise this baby is going into storage until I move into a house with room for dedicated stereo setup.

    Opinions on Crites tweeter for LaScala II?

    I personally prefer the ct120 over the ct125 but both are good replecements

    Crites A-55G Midrange Driver and CT120 LaScala

    I had the ct125s first and found them too bright. The ct120s were much smoother to my ears

    I installed these in my Belles and loved the results!

    Value of Lascalas / Belles?

    I've heard this from a few different people but I can say from my personal listening experience in my living room they sounded identical....

    Value of Lascalas / Belles?

    The Belle uses the exact same components as the La Scala, sounds the same, takes up less floor space, and (arguably) looks better. The KHorn (if you have the space for placement) is better but 9 times out of 10 people dont have the optimum placement location. The Belle demands a premium because it is aesthetically pleasing and less available. And as a former La Scala and Belle owner I can tell you they sound the same but its an easy decision when WAF factor comes into play on which to get. Also 20wpc is more than enough if you are in an average sized living room at 8-12 foot listening distances. If you are further away or in a bigger house and wanting to listen at reference levels you may want a few more watts

    Monoprice Monolith 12" Subwoofer

    Could keep my dual dayton and crown amp BUT I am neither patient enough nor apparently smart enough to figure out mini DSP and multiple sub tweaking. My Marantz SR7012 only has dual sub out for EQ so Im thinking ID or store bought subs so as to avoid manual calibration. I realize im going to have to compromise somewhere as the room is less than optimal and my budget and placement options prevents me from getting it perfect...
