Man, your setup is sweet! I just had to put it front and center again!
Any closer to getting the new Monitor Audio Center channel?
I have a bead on a Klipsch Reference RC64. This Center channel is a beast!http://www.klipsch.com/products/details/rc-64.aspx
And it will just fit where my RC35 resides.
But, I must admit, the Marantz amp has enhanced the performance of my RC35.
I read in a previous post that you plan on setting up a 5.1 system in the living room for the wife. Man, I did that immediately after I set up my system downstairs. I put together a system in the family room consisting of some of my older equipment:
Samsung LN-S3251D LCD 720P
Yamaha RX-V3000 (a 50lb. beast of a receiver back in it's heyday!)
Sony DVPNC875 DVD Changer
Marantz DV4500 for CD playback
Mitsubishi HS-U746 SVHS VCR
Verizon Fios DCT6200 HD STB
Panamax M4300-EX power center
Polk Audio surround pkg: RTi70 towers; CS400i CC; FXi3 surrounds and a Velodyne CHT12 subwoofer.
Mike, it's not a bad system either. It's all older stuff, but it can compete with a lot systems that are posted on these threads.
She can now watch Lifetime and Idol in surround sound in her own environment.
But she's a keeper. She digs all of the action flicks, her favorite being the Bourne Trilogy!
