  1. Another endorsement for the sigs. They do have the ability to improve further as the associated components increase in quality. I was somewhat shocked at how much they improved with the addition of a moderately priced amp and pre combo running via HT bypass.
  2. I was thinking it might be the S300 and avr not playing nice together as in grounding issues but it is so loud I thought the amp might be faulty as it is getting on in years but it works and sounds just fine driving my little pmc's in a separate system
  3. Oh and I did let the amps power down fully before plugging/unplugging cconbections as the bel canto's have a noticeable "still powered" lag after switching off the units power switch.
  4. Thanks guys. The avr is a Denon x4000 and the amps are bel canto S300 and S500. The S300 for surround duties is the one giving me headaches. I have tried different rca cables with no change. I have no idea about earthing but the 3 devices are all plugged into the same belkin board. During connection the power amps were powered on last.
  5. Hi all hoping to find possible answers to my issue by tapping the collective experience of the forum. The problem: When connecting and powering up a 2 channel power amp to the rear surround pre out of my avr via RCA I get massive hum/whine through the speakers that makes me fear for their survival. This also happens when I connect it to the main L and R pre out via RCA. However connecting the same amp to a different pre amp via rca does NOT cause any noise and plays without issue. Connecting a different power amp to either of the avr pre outs mentioned above also does NOT

  7. That's good to know thanks. Mind if I ask how they perform with female vocal like Nora Jones, compared to the pmc's? I only know Marten's by reputation, never heard them but am certainly intrigued.
  8. Are they fussy about placement close to walls? Also where are the ports on these? The Parkers do look impressive but my wife Getz less impressed as the price increases!
  9. I have an unmarked Primare Pre30 in silver that I stashed away but then bought an integrated amp. It was serviced by Len Wallis before being packed away in it's original packaging. PM me if interested.
  10. Hats off to you for an exceptionally well written and considered listing. GLWTS.
  11. These are brilliant little speakers. I recently thought about upgrading mine and auditioned some well known brands upto 4 times their rrp and whilst some aspects were better none tempted me enough to change. Someone will be getting excellent speakers for an an equally excellent price.
  12. Small tripoles mounted on the wall worked well for me. My couch is up against the back wall. The improvement over small bookshelf speakers was quite noticeable.
  13. I went through a similar audition and ended up going with the ma252 and pmc 25.21. This combo provided the fatigue free sound that suits me and tamed the sometimes hot tweeter. I didn’t enjoy the pmc with the devialet or new krell. Forgot to add that the ma252 really sounds better after 10 minutes or more. Also using
