I can attest the extra power really helps the Chane's, they have so much headroom and a regular receiver can run out of juice pretty quick. I am driving mine with a Parasound HCA-1500a, got it for...

Yeah I agree, but he has a big following so it will be good exposure for RBH. And yeah never heard any port chuffing on mine even when cranked with the Parasound.

I think I would try a ribbon if I were, for music it is exceptional and I think would be different enough from your Klipsch, without sacrificing the detail you are used to.

Good review! Seems like it's very competitive with the usual contenders at this price point in terms of output. If it does indeed have lower distortion due to meeting the THX spec, than it may be a...

Sorry I didn't see this! 3000 ft^3 is a medium sized room, it would work well in there. I have no had issue with port noise with mine, seems they fixed that with this X12.
