Last week I saw an ad for a Infinity Primus II set: 2x 250, 2x 150, 1x C25 and 1xPS8 for 550 euro's. (I live in the Netherlands)
All speakers separate would put me back 1050 euros, so I was amazed with this deal!
I'm only doubting if the PS8 will be good enough. I have a small/medium sized living room for this setup and I'll hook it up to a ONKYO 703 (thanks to the recommendations in this thread!).
In the shop these speakers were set up with a MARANTZ 3001 (i think) which made them sound really high on "highs". This might have been the CD that the sales assistant used, but I bet that this can be filtered out/adjusted by playing with the settings on the amp. right? Because later we listened to a different pair of 250's on a different amp, and this already made a big difference.
I took my girlfriend with me to the shop yesterday to buy the speakers (which is a big no no for most guys probably on here). And she really thought that the speakers were ugly becaused they looked cheap to her, and she didn't liked the sound of them. (!!!) But then the guy in the shop showed her 2 massive 3500 euro each speakers, and she didn't liked the sound of them either, which showed me I would've been better of leaving her home.
Anyway, the shop didn't have a complete set on stock, so I made a reservation and they are going to call me as soon as they come in. Hopefully this will be soon, but as this is a discontinued product I'm a bit anxious.
Should I look for a different sub? I do like bass, but there is no need to shake the whole neighborhood.
