LS 50 are very good especially up close but when it comes to dynamics in a large room the 800Diamonds really shine leaving the LS50 in the dust.
Of course with the difference in price tag is something to be said!
No doubt. Those B&W's are a special speaker, it has been a few years since I sat in front of a pair. Apples and oranges, my comment was tongue and cheek.
I have a pair of speakers arriving today, although that is for another thread.
Interesting never heard of them
Absolutely nothing wrong with an outboard amp and an AVR. The dacs, eq, crossover, bass management etc. Are usually very good. I have a Demon AvR 100 driving a Van Alstine U70 tube amp, divine.
Yes but I am selling them as I think they are overkill for surrounds
I crossover the surrounds at 80 HZ as they are driven by a single CA-5200 amp. The 800D in the front I cross over at 40 HZ for movies
Don't mind the speaker stands. I am experimenting
with speaker height. Building custom stands to
bring the left and right speakers out 6-10 inches into the room.
The LS50 works better than expected as a center.
Because it is semi enclosed I am using both port plugs.
Had to buy 2 pair so I am left with an extra.
Anybody need one?
I sit 6 feet away from the surround speakers so the dynamics are fine, I will experiment this weekend and see how it sounds! Will let you know.
