I have a set of Emerald EM97 speakers in cherry (impulse buy in 1999
) and have just bought a new amp - the Yammy rx-v3067.
Yamaha Rx-V3067 amp
Nad C245Bee 4 channel power amp connected to the 3067
Wharfedale Emerald EM97 main speakers
Etax HT2 Center speaker
AE Aegis compact surround speakers
Wharfedale Modus (with tweater) for front presence
Wharfedale Modus for rear surround
Wharfedale Modus for rear presence (to be installed)
PSB Sonic 5 Sub
Panasonic PTAE2000 Projector
Electric screen (84" across I think)
The Wharfedales modus are good as they are small (not the best speaker on the market I know) and as the room is small anything bigger would look silly (room is 14ft X 8ft
I have to say that front presence with dialog lift is amazing, makes the sound in movides much more realistic.
Still have to put in the rear presence - then I will have 11.1 system, eventually going to 11.2 - it is insane haha
Anyway the sound is great but I need to replace the Etax as it is cr@p, anyone got any ideas? also looking for a second sub to balance my PSB, any ideas?
I was thinking of a SW150 (250 is consderably bigger) or the ACOUSTIC ENERGY AEGO T SUBWOOFER - both I can get for half price.
For the centre I was thinking of the Wharfedale 10.cm centre or the ACOUSTIC ENERGY AELITE CENTRE SPEAKER
What do you think, which would be a better match?
Any help graterfully appreciated as I am about to pull the trigger and want to make sure I get the best setup I can for the money (approx £150-£200 for the sub and £200 for the center)
