Actually, Joseph, I do not have Klipsch, I have Dennis Murphy's Phliharmonic 2 line of speakers and WAF-1 surrounds.
Just interested in different set-up with the Marantz.
However, I do have a report......the amp came about 1:30 had a car appointment, but when I got back....got the Onkyo unhooked and the marantz hooked up and everything worked as planned....so.....
Well, guys, the phils came alive.....WOW, do not want to offend anyone, but the marantz SR7005 was superior in SQ, etc. etc. than the Onkyo and Emotiva put together!!!
I can't believe I set the whole thing up and it all worked the first time. I have performed audyssey, but have only listened to Pandora....in Pure Direct Mode.....all I can say if the Phils sound this good with streaming, wonder how it will sound playing my PC FLAC, etc files!!!! Not to even mention SACDs. With American Idol on in the office, I will have to experiment with that tomorrow.
For the first time I believe I heard them as they were meant to be heard, like at Capital Audio Fest.....or maybe even better.
Could not be happier with my setup! This is a great amp, will know more tomorrow, but I am sure things will just get better!
Looking forward to your impressions, Joseph....hopefully this Friday
I can post some of my pics later, if you don't mind!
To add...After PP & Jessica's outstanding performances on American Idol, we went in the theater and tried a movie with netflix..... we watched with Dynamic EQ one and I don't think it was on for the Pure Direct mode. Audyssey was done after the prelimary audition. However, I remember listening to Pure Direct and I wasn't sure DEQ was on or not, just made me begging for more. The 7005 did very well updating a 1997 British drama series in 7.1, don't think the center help us with the difficult dialect though.
Will be testing Avatar and The Lord of The Rings in bluray tomorrow.
It's scaring me as to how much I love this amp!
