It aught to be. My 60" Vizio is 54" wide, so it would have 5" left to spare.

Cool. The stands on the new Samsungs are just as wide as the television, so that is why I was worried.

Also this receiver have the proprietary HDAM (Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Module) like the new high end sr7007 and the 7005 was around my budget the 6006 and 6007 are new models but the 7005 receiver if you don't care about 4k I think will beat those in sound quality.also not big display, just a little circle that's kind annoying.



I can leave without the extras that the 6006 and 6007 offer, pretty much are apps like spotify etc. Not sure if I'm missing something outs but is no as important to me.

Yeah, the "porthole" look is pretty goofy, but it's a beast of a receiver. Almost the same as the Denon 3311ci but with more inputs/outputs and a few different features, and of course you prefer the Marantz "tuning" on the sound. I think you'll be happy.

Congratulations on your new Marantz purchase. I am thinking/hoping you will be as happy an owner as I am! I have been using my SR7005 with my Energy speakers for nearly a year now and still in love with the sound quality produced by the combination. Best wishes!

All I can say is the Marantz and Panamax look like they belong to reach other biggrin.gif
post #45940 of 51437
You've got a enough room to keep that SR7005 cool? Doesn't seem like you have enough space there.
post #45941 of 51437
yes those two look like two peas in a pod / Marantz / Panamax



Funny thing about panamax is this:

I recieved one as a gift about 15 years ago, It died, I called up panamax, they apparently have a lifetime guarantee or something, and I got a seriously upgraded model. They just told me to cut the power cord off the old one and send it back to them.

I wish mine would die so i can get a purdy looking one like that one pictured. They sure have come a long way in style. Mine has what looks like a led vu meter on a mixer. Red , Yellow, Green dots.


Panamax is nice stuff though. smile.gif

That was my initial thought when I first purchased the two items. I would have preferred to place the Panamax on the bottom, but the Marantz is much deeper in the depth dimension than the power conditioner. No buzzing or humming with the pair being in such close proximity to one another.

The Marantz runs very cool; temperature gain has never been a problem on my unenclosed shelf.

I have been using Panamax products for over twenty years now; I have found the company to be totally reliable. And I agree with you that the pair look very nice together!

Where is a good place to buy Panamax?
post #45944 of 51437
I pulled the trigger today and I bought some Energy speakers. Ended up with (3) v-mini centers for the front and a couple take classic's for the rear. I still need to purchase a decent sub. i have the bug and am willing to pay $400 (probably a little flexible on the price) or so for the sub but would like to get something a little more compact than some of the ones that I have looked at thus far. Any suggestions for specific models that are compact and will pair well with my setup (not sure if there are any good deals out there right now)? Thanks for all the help thus far, you guys have been a big help.

I purchased both units together at Magnolia almost a year ago. They gave me a great deal on the Panamax at the time of my purchase.

The best place might be the sub discussion group to get good advice.

Some good choices at 499 are the SVS 1000 series

Or you could look at the Hsu VTF1-MK2 at 459.

for your size room.

Thanks yes I think they where trying to make the receiver look like a vintage analog receiver. instead of a analog meter in the porthole they put a tiny electronic display kind of awkward to me.


I just hope that in future models they change the idea.

Erhurd I saw your setup when I was looking for pictures of the 7005 on Google .

Excellent! One thing to keep in mind though is that bigger cabinets and bigger woofers lead to bigger/deeper sound. Since your speakers aren't large, a larger subwoofer would make up for the smaller speakers and give a "big" or "full" sound to your system. I'm not saying get a huge subwoofer, but there are some that are nicer looking (look like a big table, even used as end tables by some wink.gif ).

I agree with hernanu though to check in the subwoofer forums for the best recommendations. Make sure to tell them your room size, and as many other details as you can and they can really help you out.

energy's s8.3 is a good choice, is compact and well liked sub with people who know better. Is available at 220 New on Amazon.
post #45952 of 51437
Need a fair and honest answer please -

I am about to sell a 5.0 Energy bookshelf -surround system on Craigslist.

2 - e:XL 16's (50-20khrz @ +- 3db, 91 sensitivity)
2 - e:XL 15's (60-20khrz " ", 90 sensitivity)
1 - e:XL cntr (60-20khrz " ", 89 sensitivity)
all rated typical 8 ohm and good off axis, stage is acceptable.

They are immaculate and still sound excellent (I think at times better than the newer CB line of bookshelves and certainly better than the Take 5 series).
What do you think would be a fair price given they are immaculate and hourwise (given their age) had minimal play at low to medium volumes.
They were airtight stored for a long while and I brought them out and put about 250 hrs of play to re-break in.

Thanks in advance.

Btw, I have had many speakers over the years and built some back when it was en vogue but this set was the first ones that excited me with respect to sound and cost. Energy was that "cool" Canadian company back then. If anyone else has had these speakers, they know why in a way I hate to part with them.
post #45953 of 51437
Rsmith115 I recommend a very musical sealed sub with the minis, that way the sub and speakers will blend better in the mid bass tones ,the majority of the very cheap ported sub only play low distorted notes that will just make vibrations in the room. Is something that will trick your mind .I like energy subs because they are very good with music even that is a ported sub.


If you go with a cheap ported sub you can end up having a hole in the mid bass tones.

.

As someone who has owned and sold these speakers, and watches the used market, I think you will have trouble getting more than $150 total for the set. Although I agree they are excellent budget speakers, you have the quadruple whammy of them being old, ugly, unknown and entry-level when new. And in this economy the used market for speakers is weak in general, people are looking for bargains. I would post them at $200 OBO and see what happens.

I am thinking the SVS SB-1000 is sounding like a nice fit. Very compact but very powerful, tight and clean with extension up to 200hz to mate well with speakers that require a higher crossover.

Rsmith did you check in on that HSU sub in craigslist? And how compact is "compact" in your mind?
post #45956 of 51437
Just wanted to throw in that the Energy Take 5.1 Classic's have dropped to 299 temporarily on amazon. Usually they bump it right back up to 399 in a very short time.

I have an Energy ESWC-10 that has very few hours usage, used it for 5 or 6 movies, thats it then upgraded my whole system.
For what your using for fronts and surrounds this is a good fit without breaking the bank.
Im asking 220.00 Free shipping included in the continental U.S.
