I'm referring to owners buying both and comparing them in their systems, and returning the LS50. I doubt you'll see any Internet Direct sold speakers winning "speaker of the year" awards any time...

Ascend Sierra-2's have been favoured over the LS50, and I think they're cheaper to boot. The ribbon tweeter is simply amazing, I compared these speakers to my Paradigm Signature S6 v2 and was amazed...

After following Parasound for a few years on various forums, I don't think that reproducing noise is an issue of theirs. I've seen noise issues spread across various brands, and Halo gear does have...

I've had the A21 for about 3 years now, best amp I've ever owned with my Paradigm Sigs(S6v2). Maybe one could get better with double the prices, but my route was to get good cables, that's really...

That's tough, it sounds like all you need is 2 channel, but with HDMI which isn't included on 2 channel gear.

In that case, I'd start with the Hsu sub, and see if that does it for you, the Energy sub has only an 8 inch woofer and I doubt it can hit it's lowest frequency of 33 Hz with any authority.

From what I've read, Ascend suggests at least 3 inches clearance if wall mounting. They are 14 lbs per speaker, so they're not the shallow lightweight design as the Take 5's. If you are using a...

A friend has the 5.1 Classic set and though it is good for the money, you can certainly make an improvement. It sounds like you want to buy the front sound stage and a sub, keeping 2 of the Energy...

I would try to see if any dealers could sell you a single Q300. Brick and mortar, online, maybe even email Kef to see what the chances are. Surely some others have the same issue.

I'm wondering what kind of output the Sony is passing, is it bitstream or something else? Is the Denon or Sony doing the audio processing?

That's funny, you had me going, LOL!

Aznattic, Emotiva makes a decent amp and you'd do fine with them. I haven't heard about noise but they will take care of you should you need a return.
