    PMC Speaker owners thread

    In Lifestyle they have Kef LS 50 and PMC 20.5.21 in one room. LS 50 are more for a general music, they are similar to Focal aria 906. PMCs are very detailed similar to Focal electra. Dynaudio has different sound characteristic. Chose the ones that sound the best when playing your favorite music . If PMC I would go with twenty5.23.

    PMC Speaker owners thread

    I would suggest not to sell your monitor audio. It's good to have 2 systems, some recordings will sound better on PMC and some on MA.
  3. I would try to stretch the budget or save more money or get some demo for kef LS 50 wireless.
  4. Regardless of the manufacturer you decide to go with I think you need to spend around $2000 for speakers and the same for integrated amp. Of course second hand or trade ins are always an options. There is no reason why not to try wharfedale again (diamond 157 maybe)? Also Cambridge audio has a good streamer/DAC but amplifiers tends to be on bright side. Most of the time Tidal is better for sound quality then Spotify.

  6. By your previous description I wouldn't go with klipsch. Try Kef with Arkam amp, or Focal with musical fidelity, or monitor audio, krix, Richter, Yamaha. Marantz amp might be for you as well. CD player from Yamaha or Marantz, $50 RCA cables.
  7. Do you have any budget in your mind? What would be the source? CD, TT, streamer, WiFi, AirPlay, DAC + PC ? The carpet has to be in front of speakers. Sources with DAC can be easily connect to TV by optical cable.
  8. As an example only you can go with Marantz 8006 CD player/streamer/DAC/WiFi/AirPlay + integrated amp musical fidelity 5si or 3si or Marantz 8006 or Naim + floorstanders focal Aria or chorus. It is an example only as there are too many options. It is worth to have a look at Australian manufacturers. Kef ls50 wireless is also considered a good option.
  9. So what speakers do you have exactly? What is your budget? Do you have any source (CD player, streamer ...)?
  10. Just to clarify, are you going to use 5.1 system for both surround music and movies or just for movies? The purpose makes a huge difference.
  11. For music all the same floorstanders includin centre channel. For movies full range centre channel speaker + bookshelf surround + 1 or 2 subwoofers.

    Equaliser

    The reason people don't use it often is because it's lowering the overall sound quality. It is better to experiment with room acoustic treatment, speakers positioning, speaker's stands.

    Great explanation.

    Mulling over AVRs

    In this case manufacturers invented integrated amps with HT bypass. So for stereo you are using integrated amp only and for HT duty AVR with pre out to integrated switched to HT bypass mode. It gives us huge benefit in sound quality and versatility.

    Hi, Just to clarify, is the system going to be used 50% for stereo music and 50%for home theatre duty?
