I am blown away by my 300's & 350 and contemplating 100 to replace my RX1 rears.
By the way, that tweeter sounds better everytime I hear it, I have about 40 hours on them so far and had a bonafide audiophile friend over this weekend, he was very very impressed with the soundstage and dead centre imaging
Yep. I will be getting my 300s in about 3 months, and will be getting my second sub at the end of the year.

I had a 7.2 system before and don't want to go backwards from that...but for the time being as I get all the bita together 5.1 will be plenty.

I will be getting Rotel 1582 mk 2 and a 1585 for power amps by tax time next's a long road as you know...5 years you said right?

I can't wait until the journey is over...I don' even want to think about how many extra shifts I did at my job I hate to get the 10k together it has cost me so far for just the 5.1 ( the sub is coming soon )

Thanks a lot.
I have the NAD C316 in use with bookshelf and they are quite a great sound for music. Perhaps the 356 model would work with the Silver 8's. They have more power and can handle much more dynamically. I just saw them for ?599 on Amazon UK, so they are in the range you mentioned. Good luck with the search

I'd be scared too scared to buy a Cambridge audio amp. There's a lot on the Internet about their poor quality control. I've read multiple magazines that received review samples that we're already broke and even stereophile had a similar problem and upon finally getting one that worked, the measurements showed different obvious results for the left and right channels.
Just some input

What do y'all think about these? I've been looking for a pr of rx1s in rosewood for a while. They've been reposted and price lowered $25. What concerns me is the tweeter replacement and the fact that the tweeter surrounds don't match and whether they'll sound right. Think there's a chance of finding the cover that goes over those visible screws from MA?
