Well, if you're pleased with the general sonic signature of the ML's, the Chane A5rx-c towers and A2rx-c center would be an excellent, higher output option.

Agreed. Don't be afraid to deviate between 90 and 60hz for the front three to find what works for you and your setup.

Eh, you'd be fairly shocked what one can accomplish on a quality reel-to-reel, using good tape stock, and running a high IPS....assuming the upstream stuff is in order, as others have stated.

The SR-120 is a solid unit and I'm not surprised that you're getting excellent service from it. But, like you, that monoprice amp did catch my eye. :)

In terms of bass, my listening area is a huge 24'x24' square with a 12' vaulted ceiling. Only a hollow, partial height dividing wall bisects the space. The other speakers reside in what is...

If anything, my HSU VTF-15h is the weak link. And, while there are certainly many higher power subs out there, it definitely isn't a lightweight in a space like mine.

Yes, it was worthwhile for me. Watching action movies as loud as I want without having to ride the volume dial is worth the price of admission.

Well, the unpowered drivers would act as very poorly damped passive radiators if they share volume in the enclosure with the other drivers. That can do weird, unintended things wrt resonances in the...

I'm honestly not exactly sure. This is a Vifa driver made to Chane specs. It has a different voice coil material than the BG planars. In the Chane application, it's used with a back plate and damped...

I don't think anybody has said the A3rx-c is more musical than the A5rx-c. What has been said, and what I've said, is that the A3rx-c is a much more forgiving design...
