First, 85 - 90 dB at the listening position is very loud, but not reference level loud. Did you measure it with an SPL meter at the listening position? Second, are you talking only about the...

Which matches the spelling. I didn't read further after the first sentence. I'd say to the OP that biting the hand that feeds you isn't recommended.

The SuperZeros shouldn't be used for a front stage ... IMO. They only go down to 85 Hz. These are fine for surround duty. If your wife cannot accept the EMP Tek R5Bi's for your front stage (the...

If you must keep the speakers no further than 2 feet from the wall, panel speakers may not be your best bet (I have mine a little less than 3 feet, while not ideal, they do sound great). I still...

That 140 watts is not correct. The Denon is a 70 watt/channel amplifier (20 - 20 kHz, 0.08 THD @ 8 Ohms), which is not exactly a powerhouse, but should be sufficient for most needs. Add in the...

I agree with Zorba. It’s not normal to start out with a center channel, then add. Normally one goes for a nice 2.1 system. WaveCrest and Dayton are nice recommendations. A few other very good...

Sensitivity has no relationship to sound quality. A speaker with a high sensitivity rating will play louder at the same volume setting, as you already know. If you like the Klipsch sound, then it’s...
