My Chorus ii speakers are connected to my Marantz SR-7011 receiver. The bass level on these speakers have always been too low for me unless I would turn the receiver volume up quite high to a level that my ears are getting stressed out from the mids & treble drivers, before I can feel the bass pulsing through my chest. Otherwise, the speakers sound great at all levels! My question, if I ran my fronts from the receiver’s preamps to a separate Marantz amplifier, possibly the Marantz MM-7025, would this be a great benefit of increasing the bass volume? The bass frequency of the Chorus ii goes down to 38hz which is fine for me, I only need a way to bring up the volume of the bass drivers. I previously had the speakers connected to my old Marantz SR-18, which I had the same problem with bass volume. My living room size is 15’ x 18’ x 7’10” high with an opening to my kitchen, 4’ wide to ceiling height, sheet rocked with solid oak flooring. I prefer to listen to music levels low to medium. If a separate amp would produce a big difference in bass volume, then my budget would have to be $800- $1200. I would like to stay with the Marantz brand since I have owned that brand for over 40 years. If there was a way to bi-amp my Chorus ii’s, I would go that route since my SR-7011 has quite a few flexible options including adjusting the crossovers within the receiver. Thanks.
So im buying a package deal with 2 x RF-82 II, 2 x RB-61 II and 1 x RC-62 II. Now i need a receiver thats powerfull enough to drive this set up. Can anyone tell if im underpowering with a Marantz SR7011?
