I have a 5.1 set-up, using PSB's Image Series (T5 Tower, C5 Center, B5 rears). I'm using a paradigm powered sub.
My receiver is a Marantz SR5006. It feels like I'm not getting enough separation in the sound effects. Take Iron Man 2 on Blu-Ray when he jumps out of the airplane. I would expect to hear the 'pops' of those fireworks much better than I do.
I've been thinking I may need a better receiver and wondering about the NAD T 757 or the Outlaw 975 with matching 125 amp.
I believe the Marantz is 100W vs 125W...do I need more power, is it worth the $1500 or do I need to pop up a bit further in the receiver/amp food chain.
Ideas and suggestions welcomed.
