Howdy from Texas!

Long time lurker, finally decided to make an account.

I'm relatively young so my setup has slowly been evolving over the past eight years from a 2.0 Bose 301 setup to the following:

Fronts L & R: Klipsch RF-82 ii
Center : Klipsch RC-62 ii
Surround L & R: Klipsch KG 4.2
Sub: SVS PB-1000

I also have some Polk Rti8's and a CSI5 that I use in the bedroom now.

Boomer Sooner from Oklahoma...

Still in the process of upgrading...

Yamaha 663 receiver 7.2 setup
MartinLogan Motion 20s Front
MartinLogan Motion 50XT Center
MartinLogan Motion 4s for Surrounds
MartinLogan Dynamo 700 Subwoofer for my #1
Yamaha back surrounds and front high Presence speakers
Yamaha YST-SW160 Subwoofer for my #2

I am planing on the ML Motion 60XT for the fronts, and upgrading my receiver next...then still deciding how I want to do my surround setup...35XT or 4's or 20's...and probably get another 700 to match the other sub...

Jamo 7.1 Speaker set-up Driven by Marantz AV SR7500

Hi

I want to make the most out of my speaker 7.1 set-up driven by my oldie but reliable Marantz AV SR 7500 7.1 capable (no HDMI at all) 135w/ch on 7.1 with following speakers:

Fronts L/R Jamo 608s 150w/250w on 6ohms fully discrete
Center Jamo S60 80w/130w on 6ohms
L/R Surr Jamo S60 Surr 80w/130w on 6 ohms
Back Surr Bose 10w/50w rms on 4 ohms
Single Active Subwoofer Jamo S360 10inch speaker

Currently the fronts are driven by the amp bi-amp bi-wired but I think fronts are not fully utilized and potential not used fully so I want to upgrade and drive fronts with monoblocks (just marantz please to have uniformity of brand and connectivity features) thinking of Marantz MA6100s dedicated amps to drive fronts especially. Any other amps gladly will look at but preferably marantz.

Also, want to try multiple subwoofers as I love to listen to very good music and movies with very good sounding lows. Any suggestions of them will do.

Some comments to my not so broad knowledge will gladly read and acknowledge to try them.

Thanks guys, appreciate comments.

Marantz or any other amp hook up basically the same so ease is any amp really so don't feel like you have to be bound by Marantz just because of the brand, just throwing this out there and there are plenty of manufacturers that make a good amp!

Like azz said, any good amp will do.


My Audio/Video processor is the Marantz AV8801, there top of the line at time.


For amp, I use this one
http://www.outlawaudio.com/products/7700.html
As you see, you don't need to stay with the same brand for the amp as your processor, it will not change the sound.
Only the quality of the amp will, not the name.


They offer many other good amp depending of your need.


Another choice that lots of people seem to like, are product from these guys
https://emotiva.com/products/emotiva/amplifiers-0


The above two company make great products for the $$$

Been lurking for a long time, thought it's time to get to know a few folks here.

I have a HT system and a Music system.

HT consists of a HK-AVR345 being used a pro/pro driving a HK Signature 2.1 (110WPCX5) with a full compliment of DCM speakers. TimeWindow SuroundScapes, CX Center, and a DCM sub.

Music system is a Rotel RA1312, used as a pre, a Carver m200T, a Transciptor Transcriber turntable, DCM TimeWindows and DCM-prototype Fan speakers.

Hope to be posting some pics soon.

And as I have hit the magic number for posting pics, here is DCM heaven - the cabinet the Fans are sitting on is 8' wide, to give a size reference.
