both provide great open sound when using the xlr connections from pre amp to krell cd player...waiting for cables to arrive to use xlrs to amp..vocals on parasound are more detailed and more forward
in 5 channel playback..both excell.but parasound seems to deliver cleaner vocals once again to center channel
just my early opinion after 2 days of messing around...selling my b&k av 5000 series II..check out audiogon.com
I've noticed several people replacing B&Ks with Parasounds, and wondered if there is some sort of natural progression there.
