2/6/10 EDIT: I sold the MFW-15 a few months ago and I have been on a sub search ever since. I placed an order for a Rythmik F12SE 12" servo sub and I should be getting it in a few weeks when its no longer on backorder.




3/10/10 EDIT: I finally found a replacement sub!!! The Rythmik F12SE 12" subwoofer. This thing is one of the best subs I have ever heard. Absolutely clean, tight, and powerful bass.

I have a "silly" question...why the extra amps? Just need the extra power?
post #9 of 230
I was wondering the same with the amps. Did you originally buy the 2 channel than pick up the 3? vice versa? Looks great! hell of an apt. hows that sub work out for you? I also live in an apt and would like to get a beefer sub, I just dont know if its worth it. Along with an amp i dont know if itd really benefit me too much. Great choice on everything! Keep up the good work. Any ideas on your feature upgrades?

My viennas are 4ohm speakers. The marantz I own just does not do them any justice IMO. Adding an amp has brought life into the speakers that was previously unknown to me. The RPA-1 amp is more of a musical sounding amp so I use it for my music. The xpa-3 pulls multichannel duties for me. Would one amp do the job? Of course but I prefer the RPA-1 for music so I use it

I'm very impressed with the "grand" facelift Vienna gave its speakers. The new stand on the Mozart's is very stylish, the new grills look great, and it was a very nice touch that they inlaid the black rubberized strip on the back of the speaker where the port is. The fit and finish on the new line is top shelf. And of course they sound great too, but then they always have to these ears.

Very ice setup you have there! How do you like the Emo surrounds? I was considering them in my system but they are never in stock (?). The price seems too good to pass up.
