I have a question to ask to fellow BA enthusiasts. Few words about me ? I discovered Boston when I bought at age 18 (and that's 18 years ago), my first real Home Theater set up. It was composed of 2 VR950 (LR), a crappy Opal CC10 (middle), and two CR8 as surrounds.
18 years later, I've got the same set up, but I added two CR8 as surround back. And I don't want to change. Except for the center speaker.
So here's the deal. I'd like to have a L/C/R front which is homogenous.
As I'm European, it's quite hard to find second hand VR950 in here. But I found one pair, far away from my town, at 299E.
I also found two VR2 for 290E (and I could buy a single one from a shop for 220+shipping).
I also found somebody selling a 1999 THX boston kit (2 VR35, 1 VR14 center and 2 VRS dipole surround speakers) for 500E (including two outdated Denon receivers, one AVR-2808 and one AVR-3802)
I currently run an HK AVR630, which sounds great, but my left channel died on me, and it has no HDMI. So I'm using my Oppo 93E to decode then send the signal to the AVR630 multich inputs. So I'm also thinking about buying for 400Euros a second hand recent receiver.
So question short, what would be the best deal, in terms of sound ? Are VR 35 better than Vr2 ? Is it the contrary ? Would my VR950 marry enough with one VR2 or should I buy a complete 3 set ? Or would my two Vr950 be great with one VR35 as a middle ? Or should I go for the very expensive second hand vr950 ?
Looking forward to hear from you Boston lovers
