Hi guys. Anybody try to demo 2 SX1000 MK II's vs a Parasound Halo A21.
Here's my dilema. I have two SX1000 MK II mono-blocks, and one SX500 MK II mono-block powering Paradigm Studio 100v5's and a CC690v5. My side and rear surrounds are Paradigm ADP590v5, and Studio 20v5 bring in the rear. Powering my surrounds is an Emotiva UPA-500 (80w per channel). My 3 front run off XLR. The surround are RCA, from a Marantz AV7702 (Soon to be replaced with an AV8802). I was thinking of selling off the SX500, and UPA-500 and get an A51. This way my center gets powered by the A51. I feel my CC690 is not clear/low with voices sometimes and I have to increase the volume to hear the dialogue, & makes my setup simpler. I do listen to music as much as movies. My problem is, are my SX1000 mono-blocks competitive with the Halo A21. Any thoughts? I'm really looking for any input/ ideas on my situation.
