You'll be just fine with that marantz. Those older models have a sweetness to the sound that can be hard to find in modern equipment of equal price.

The A5rx-c towers will work just fine for you...

It depends on what your primary use is. For movies, they will likely sound very similar. For music in 2 channel listening, the A1rx-c will be more spacious, with better midrange presence. Those...

1) You did articulate that Arx was forward with regard to the nature of its sound, and later that others are less forward, such as the RAAL tweeter products you own.

EDIT: I want to add that the...

I'm not saying EITHER of those things.

Further, I've had several hours of listening time on each of two Salk models with RAAL ribbon tweeters. The ST and the HT2-TL. You're not going to change my...

Agreed. More output and maybe less overall distortion, but a step backward indeed.

That's more of a crossover or level matching issue between drivers then. We're going to have to agree to disagree because my experiences don't mirror your own.

Just curious, but what Arx models do...

Correct. No special treatment required, but just get some hours in then and they will open up. Also, don't place them too close to your back wall. Get them at least 18" from the back wall if you can....

This hasn't been my experience at all. The current gen Arx planar tweeter sounds just as smooth as any RAAL or Fountek ribbon tweeter I've heard. In fact, several implementations of ribbon tweeters...

Think more like $700+ each, with a completely different (and better) cabinet finish, and a larger cabinet.

EDIT: To answer your other question, expect a trio of 6.5" XBL2 splitgap drivers, a...

The basic A7 concept as it stands now will begin with a larger enclosure and most likely 3 xbl2/splitgap 6.5" woofers. Midrange is as yet undetermined. The gen 3 tweeter will allow for a simplified...

I agree with the phraseology you use in this post.

For what it's worth, I've seen the measurements and there are few tweeters that have substantially lower distortion at consumer listening levels....

The difference could be due to a variety of factors, but tweeter distortion relative to any of those listed would not be one of them.

I have heard a lot of comments on the A5's and hearing of...

I know it was one of the thinnest of the foam type. I'm talking the closed cell, rectangular profile style. Possibly 5/8ths of an inch wide by 1/8" or 1/4" tall. He sanded the surface with really...

Besides, I already had a Toshiba...
