I will wait on my subwoofer for now. I am part of PSB club now.
Another authorized dealer who sells online sells new PSB at a better price than DMC, too late so I won't mess with your head by telling you who it is, but everyone here knows them.
I saw in various of your post and in others that replied about Denon not being able to play 4 Ohms speakers, but it looks like everyone missed a big point about the PSB Image line: They are 6 Ohm, not 4 Ohm; therefore any good inexpensive receiver, from a reliable manufacturer (Marantz, Yammy, Onkyo, Denon, Sony, Pioneer, etc.), and up can use these speakers without being strained.
Enjoy your purchase!!!

Granted the Onkyo SR805 is bigger and stronger than the SR4001 from Marantz, but I feel that the sound is more detailed and smooth. The marantz was a little more harsh for my ears and it started to distort at certain levels. Your Marantz has a more powerful amp than what mine did so you will have different results. Perhaps similar to what I have now with the Onkyo.
Marantz SR4001 is no match for the Onkyo SR805, there is a difference in power, componentry, price, etc. A direct comparison would be SR5002 or SR7001/02. If you would have changed from your the SR4001 to the SR7001, you would have gotten a better sounding receiver than the 805. Granted that the 805 has better features for HT. The 805 won't distort as much as the 4001, because it just plays more "relaxed" at the same volume levels.

I bought a PSB set up about 8 years ago and it has worked great. Image 5t in the front, the Image 9 c in center, and Image 2b's in the rear....Velodyne ct 100 sub...
Well, it's time to get rid of the old yamaha amp and I am going to the Denon 3808.
My room is small, about 11x12 , but I play all movies, music etc quite loud in there..
I am wondering if PSB has made big improvements in their latest speakers to a point where I should go ahead and upgrade my older ones....
I am considering the Image towers t 55 or 65 in front, the s50's on the rear, and either keeping my Image 2 b's in the back, or getting a suggestion from you for there.
Also looking to go 6i for a sub...
my question again, is, does this make sense? I don't know how ofter speakers should be upgraded or replaced? Any help is great...Thanks...
I would hold on the speaker upgrade, and wait for the new Image line to come out, which apparently is coming out this Fall. The current Image line is better than the previous one, but not a humongous difference. I would venture to say that the current Image line images better, and has better mid details. But, when the new Image line is out for sale I'm sure that it will be much better than the previous Image line. Plus, if on a budget, you can always buy the current line at excellent pricing, as dealers clear inventory to make space for the new line.
To better understand, here is a legend of what I just wrote:
Previous = 4T
Current = T45
New = ???
