First of all thanks for all the expertise here - I read the forum for hours and learned a lot leading to me bugging my audio dealer and changing my order three times ....
Now I would need some last feedback from you to sleep well
I am a novice to stereo and HT systems and the best stereo system I ever had was like 500 USD (including the built in CD-player
I will use the system to 80% for watching movies and HD TV and streaming movies and the rest to listen to digital music (think itunes and spotify and not high quality CDs).
My room is medium to large sized with a bit more than 600 square feet (56 m2) and it is 13 feet (4 m) high and quite square.
Here is the current setup that I ordered:
- RX 8 front
- RX 1 back
- RX Center
- Velodyne SPL 1000 Ultra
- Pioneer LX75 AV
- Pioneer LX55 Blue Ray Player
And here are the for me most pressing/bothering questions:
1. Would the RX6 be a better choice than the RX8? I read that the RX8 might have some "bass problems/deficiencies" compared to the RX6 and that with a good sub woofer the RX6 would be better. I am worried that this strong bass thing kinda negatively influences the RX8 without any advantages in return. Is that justified or (as the higher version and price suggests) the RX8 should be at least as fine as the RX6? Or might I never really hear the difference and if I have the money and space the RX8 cant be worse than the RX6 in my setup.
2. As I mostly watch movies with the system and as I read here that the center takes almost 60% of the work for movies I thought about changing the RX Center to the Gold GXC 350 Center. Does that make sense at all? And does that even harmonically work together with the rest of the setup?
I am not on the high side of cash and also my ears are not good enough going one level above (eg. the whole gold series) but I do not mind spending a bit more to improve the center or having the RX8 instead of the RX6.
Thanks a lot !! - your feedback is more than highly appreciated to get my first "real" cool system.
