I don't understand why you didn't try the KEF R700/R600C in white, they look great too...and sound fantastic.


Best of luck with your new ones!

They are sounding very good, but there is more hidden potential. Just need to get hold of the Parasound integrated that I have ordered.

I had both speakers at home and I tried MA Gold speakers and found the sound to be similar to kef r700. The only difference I noticed was the ribbon tweeter, which was very detailed and I kind of liked it. And the shop would trade the r700 with parasound integrated, and I couldn't turn the offer down.

What post number is pictures of your setup? *see edit I LOVE Monitor Audio's Gold series in that white finish. I always have.

Great looking speakers you have there. BTW, did you test both the KEF R700s and the MA Gold speakers for both HT and music? (if you were able to do some type of comparison).

Any reason to keep the grills on?

The fact that you are protecting your setup with a gate makes it all the more interesting! It's nice to see you are making due, instead of putting everything away like i've seen some members have to do in the past.

I've uploaded very messy setup pics haha don't worry!
Ok, so I've snapped a photo of my front 3 Chane's and the PSA sub (on the far left with the funny-looking Santa on top) to show how far one will go to keep their good speakers upstairs where they belong, while keeping those sticky little prying fingers of an 8-month old (who can crawl quite fast now!) from poking holes in the darn things! I hope it works...

That looks great! I like the gate. It tells another story. I'm a fan of no-grills, but the area is very clean!

The Infinity Primus 363s are rocking' today. Hands down the best pair of speakers I've heard for about $200/pair. I can't think of anything that comes close.

Haven't tried above the TV yet - how might the sound compare to current location? Where it is now is only a few degrees below ear level - pretty good center effects/vocals during movies - maybe I could see tipping it upward that few degrees to put it directly on-axis...?

The center is positioned low, and not tilted up and inside the cabinet.

So you're getting a potential off axis response handicapped by very early reflections by being inside the cabinet, and more reflections by sound reflecting off the doors.


On top of the cabinet, angled down at the LP, pulled out of the shelf just so it's ever so slightly in front of the left and right shelf walls will drastically change the response of the center for the better.

Normally, above or below does not matter, as long the center aim at the same spots of your mains.
In your case above should sound much better.
Those doors and inside the cabinet are a sound nightmare.


Here's some easy instruction to follow on how to aim the center.


"-First, go get yourself a cheaplaser pointer, a flat one if possible.
-Then put-it on top of one of your main (does not matter witch one, since theyare both the same height).
-Point at your listening area.
-Put a piece of tape to mark the position.
-measure with a ruler the distance from the top of the speaker to the center ofthe tweeter.
-Go back to your piece of tape at your listening area and subtract thatdistance going down.
-Put a new piece of tape and remove the first one.


-Now do the same for the center speaker with a little difference.
-First measure the distance from the top of the center speaker to the center ofthe tweeter.
-Go back to your main listening area.
-Remember piece of tape
#2
-now take the distance from the top of your center to the center of tweeter andgo up from piece of tape
#2 to that distance.
-put piece of tape
#3 , and piece of tape #2 can be remove if youlike since it was the distance of your main tweeter.
-put the laser pointer on top of your center
-adjust angle until the light hit that piece of tape (
#3 ).


Now your done, all tweeters should hit the main listening position at the sameheight (for the main listening position)."


Also, Make sure your center speaker is sticking out of the cabinet by about aninch.
From your picture, it is about an inch in, and should be out.
Sound reflection from the edge of a cabinet can play havoc on your sound.

So if I was you, I would try above and follow those simple directions.

The post number is 4290.

I love the white finish as well, and the curve line on the back makes the speaker even sexier.

I had two pairs of r700 and those speakers were not breaked in yet. The short time I had them, they sounded really good. Both in music and HT. I have not compared those speakers side by side, but I am pleased with both kef r700 and ma gx300. The main difference I noticed was the tweeter. The ribbon tweeter is more forward, more fun to listen at.

I have a daughter, and she is 11 months old. She loves to poke on the bass drivers. And the metal grills is a lifesaving feature. When I had the r700s, I constantly had to chase her and prevent her to touch those drivers :P

A simple stereo with good sound.

Main: Kenwood LS-P7300 5 way towers
Sub: DBX SW-15 Plus 15" (huge box) passive sub-woofer with a home made amp

It's nothing special, but i paid 25$ for the whole lot. A lot of people talk down on the kenwoods but they sound great in my living room, especially with the sub. I have some vintage Advent and Paradigm speakers that don't touch the clarity and depth of the LS-P7300's. I recently purchased an yamaha C-60 pre-amp and it pairs very well.

Wow $25
At the end, what matter is "you are happy with them" not me or others.
Happy listening and enjoy

Hey all. I have a massively upgraded Klipsch Reference RF-3 II system. Towers, matching center, and surrounds (all upgraded). I did full crossover network upgrades with MUCH better caps, resistors, and inductors, did full rework and upgrade of all internal bracing to make all cabinets totally inert, did full acoustic foam stapled to internal walls, upgraded all internal wiring to be heavy gauge, did a full Mortite rope caulk damping mod to all drivers (making them much more inert). These are run on an Onkyo tx-sr805 with Audyssey fully calibrated. I also have full DIY room acoustic treatments - bass traps, wall absorbers, diffusers.

For subs, I have dual MFW-15 DIY Turbo'd subs and an Elemental Designs DIY Turbo'd a5-350, all with TC Sounds TC 2000 15" drivers and iNuke DSP amps. Adding a couple more MFW-15 Turbo's and another Turbo'd a5-350 very soon.

All in all, it sounds absolutely amazing, and sounds like speakers worth thousands more.

I just got these setup last night and I'm impressed. These little guys pack a punch.

It's nothing special, but i paid 25$ for the whole lot. A lot of people talk down on the kenwoods but they sound great in my living room, especially with the sub. I have some vintage Advent and Paradigm speakers that don't touch the clarity and depth of the LS-P7300's. I recently purchased an yamaha C-60 pre-amp and it pairs very well.
Kenwood made some great stuff back in the day. Most people have either forgotten that or never realized it to begin with, which keeps the prices down. I managed to get a Kenwood KR-5030 receiver the other day for $80 on EBay, whereas a Pioneer or a Marantz of the same vintage would have cost me at least 3 times as much. More Kenwoods for us

(I'll be back to post pictures of the KR-5030 soon in the "Let's See Pics of Your Stereo Setup" thread.)

Ordered new speakers

Hey everybody, I just pulled the trigger on a pair of Primus 363s for my front left and right and a BIC FH6 for my center based on recommendations on this forum. They should come in a few days. I was and still am a little leery of not getting the matching Primus center but I thought I'd try this one out and take it back if I don't like it. I believe it was Zorba that I've seen recommend the FH6 as a center even with other brands of front L and R speakers and it was significantly cheaper than the 200 Primus center I originally planned to get. I currently have a Sony DH-750 with a pair of Dayton Audio B652s and a 12" Sony sub I've had for a long time, can't remember the model. Finally moving up to 5.1!

Monitor Audio Gold GX300

Hello There,


Need your help. I purchased Monitor Audio GX gold 300, I have started to feel problems in my ear, non of the people in the family is having any issue, Went to the Doctor, no issues. I am running this on Marantz SR6006. No doubt these are powerful speakers with ribbon tweeter, sound amazing attention to detail. some time too detail. Some advised me the amp is not enough for this, need to get much powerful one, like the SR 7010. Would you think changing amp is crucial. it is quite a strange situation. I am visiting ENT specialist to check my years. The ear pain is deep inside as if there is some sort of pressure in the ear, this has made my ear sensitive.
does ribbon tweeter require powerful amp?
Thank you
