The R300 and R500 are voiced differently from the centers, and the difference is quickly obvious to a careful listener when they're used in a system with one of the R-centers, so no.

I'd do three R200c's or three R600c's. Perhaps one of the centers with the R700, which recent measurements show to voiced like the centers (smoothly declining FR), if money's less a concern and towers were desired.

Does anyone have any experience with a "marantz pm6005" with the ls50's? I'm about to order these speakers but was only able to listen to them on some high end yamaha unit, I'm sold on them though. I'm getting rid of a yamaha 7.1 avr and like the look, spec, and price of the marantz pm6005.

My room is 16x16x8 and I am just concerned the marantz (and ls50) will be sufficient! It's for 50% music 50% TV & movies, but as I'm moving to a 2 channel set up the priority is definitely music!

I'm not looking to wake the neighbors but still want to crank it a bit sometimes!

Any thoughts, advise would be appreciated.

Regards
Gordon

With these speakers they need a fair bit of power and current, and a subwoofer as well.

Krell Evolution 900e x 7

Bose Jewel speakers.

 

Jealous of my speakers?

I would recommend "C" above. The R500&R700 are stars of a very good R series and the R600 is preference of the centers.
