Anyone using these amps with Definitive Technology Speakers? I auditioned the amps today (more detailed than the Anthem amps I also checked out) but did not have access to Def Tec speakers. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Hi guys, thanks for all of your input. FYI I decided to go with the Parasound Halo A51
5.1 amp with my Def Tec 7001 main speakers, my C/L/R 2002 center and 4 BPVX surrounds. I went with the Parasound Halo A23
2.1 amp for the front ambient height speakers because they do not draw nearly as much current as everything else and the signals that are fed to them carry a lot less information.
For my rack I ended up going with a VTI BLG 404-13
in black with black shelves = 13" 9" 9" and a 7" shelf configuration (This set up includes an additional 9 inch shelf). You can see an example of what I bought here:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...4#post17272154
This AVS member has the exact same Parasound amps that I own and the 13" bottom shelf on the rack can handle the height, width and DEPTH of both Parasound amps (the depth of the A51 along with the total weight of both these amps combined were a big reason behind the rack choice. Boy was picking the right rack for this particular set of equipment an agonizing process... groan.
I am pairing the Parasounds with a ONKYO PR-SC5507
pre-pro that has been ordered:http://www.onkyopro.com/model.cfm?m=...eamplifier&p=i
As for XLR cables, I ordered 7 (seven) 1meter Emotiva X-Series Balanced XLR Cables
I guess the only question I have left that needs answering is this: Do I need 2 RCA LFE subwoofer cables? Will they make a serious difference with my Def Tec 7001SC's or not? I am thinking about these as a possibility if they are needed:Blue Jeans Cable LC-1 Analog Audio Cable
but I need feedback from Parasound, ONKYO PR
-SC5507 and Def-Tec owners as to if this will make a huge or noticeable difference or not. I look forward to hearing from you folks and thanks again to the entire AVS forum and the members on this board, we could not have done any of this or created our front projector and screen home theater set up without your help, support AND invaluable advice.
Well, what do you think of this set up and my equipment choices?
I have never heard TRUE HD or DTS HD and am really looking forward to having an audio system that does justice to our SONY VPL-VW60
pj, our SONY BDP-S550
bluray player and our 100" STEWART Firehawk SST
