JD, it doesn't work for me...but it depends upon the back height of your chairs, as well as the distance from speakers to LPs. I have mine on top of cabinets, so about 7' up. (We have high backed recliners.) The LP to rear speaker distance in almost equidistant to the LCR to LP distance. Direct is the only way to go for rears, IMO. The delivered ambience is terrific for most sounds (video/audio sources). The SR3s might be okay for side surrounds, but I have never enjoyed bipoles/dipoles for rears.


Cheers.

MARGARITAS,
they're not just for breakfast anymore.

Hey Mudslide.

Thanks for sharing your comments. I think I’ll experiment with raising the height of my lr3’s Instead of downsizing to 5’s. They are to heavy for wall mounting; think I’ll build 12” tall pedestals to stand them on. They will just clear my seat backs at that elevation.

Bi Amping 10Ts and CC3

Hi,
Does anyone have experience bi amping 10Ts and CC3?

My questions is it better to go with a more powerful amp driving the whole 10T or bi amping it with a less powerful amp?

I am considering the following LCR options:

3 each PS Audio Stellar M700 mono block (350/700 watts into 8/4 ohms)
or
3 each Bel Canto Ref 600m mono block (300/600 watts into 8/4 ohms)
or
1 each Gato DPA-4004 using only 3 of the 4 channels (400/800 watts into 8/4 ohms)
or
3 each Lyngdorf Audio SDA2400 stereo amps - bi amping each speaker (200/400 watts into 8/4 ohms)

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

My local dealer has the Gato amps. They should be no problem running 10T's and a CC-3 center. I use a 200wpc Forte 6 to run the CC-3 center. The store I go to was the first store to sell Aerials. 250wpc on up should be sufficient.

I once bi-amped my center channel (LR5) when I had a lower powered Parasound HCA1206 amplifier. I had an extra channel I wasn’t using and thought it wouldn’t hurt to try. Honestly, I couldn’t tell a difference.

Later, during a conversation with Michael Kelly, he explained that bi-amping does not benefit with the extra watts. He said the only way to give them more power is with a more powerful amplifier. He loves the Gato/Aerial combo, but they are priced WAY above my current HT budget.
