    Which is the better value assuming a pair of S30's (un-modded) are $250-299, and a pair of Min 21's are $360-400. Assuming one can pick either for free, which one sounds the best? For music, I listen to almost every genre/style imaginable. I would say country and hardcore metal/thrash is the...

    I just got off the phone with a really helpful guy from Crutchfeild. Basically I have the Cambridge S30's set up with a Onkyo TX-8050 and I feel it's a solid and economical setup. However Onkyo puts out about 80 watts of power while S30's are set up for 100. So a 20w differential. The guy...

    Hi All I was looking to purchase the Cambridge Audio S30's bookshelf's with the S50 center for my front 3 speakers in a 5.1 set up. But as of right now they are on back order everywhere. No one has them in stock and it's going to be about 3 weeks before I can get them delivered to my house. I...

    The Cambridge speakers are $300/pr and the Paradigms are $400/pr. I have an Onyko TX-NR609 receiver right now that has been repaired and I don't want to upgrade this. Which will match my Onkyo better IYO, and which bookshelf will be easier to drive? I'm leaning towards Paradigms, only...

    Up for sale is a pair of Cambridge audio s30's in black with a modded crossover by Dennis Murphy. The speakers are currently one of the most popular around due to the high performance to cost ratio. The modded crossover smooths out the frequency response especially in the highs. A very good...

    Hello everyone. I recently ordered a pair of Cambridge S30 bookshelf speakers and the matching center channel S50. I'd really like to get a sub to go along with them in my effort to build toward a 5.1 system. (I am thinking about getting S20's for the rears) Do you guys have any...

    I have recently been gifted a denon 2313ci and am looking for a bookshelf 5.1 system for wall mount. Having heard such wonderful things about the S30 I was considering them. Almost pulled the trigger until I noticed that most descriptions of both the denon and the cambridge use the word warm. I...

    I have decided to do a 5.1 setup using 5 Cambridge s30s. (I started this thread and it has lead me down this path: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1460614/speakers-for-a-5-1-setup-on-a-denon-1913 ) I have some subwoofer questions and I figured I should be asking in the subwoofer forum rather...

    Sorry guys....I know this is my 2nd post today, but I really need to order one of these this afternoon. I have a small apartment and will be getting a sub later....so right now I'm only getting bookshelf speakers. I can't decide between these 2. I was convinced on getting the S30 but then...

    My budget is $600-650, and my local audio/video retailer will not sell me my current speakers I want, the Monitor Audio RX1s for under $900. Yes, I live in Canada, and yes, this is the only store in my city that even sells this brand. I know I want something almost as good as the RX1s, and...

    I've read on here where most don't recommend putting a bookshelf speaker on its side unless its specifically made for it...but is that just because it may effect sound quality or could it potentially damage the speaker somehow? I'm setting my dad up with a surround system and he needs to put...

    I have been reading WAAAY too much about these speakers, and when I think I want one of them I start to look at the other brand. My room is 15'x15' with 9' ceilings. Hard wood floors. Sub will be a BIC F12. Receiver will be a Yamaha V765. I can afford both of these sets for a 5.1 system. Fronts...

    Not sure if buying port plugs for S30s will make them sound good if I place them in the corners of my room using speaker stands. I forgot they are rear ported when I placed an order for 4 of them yesterday. My other option is to cancel the order, and get the Mordaunt Carnival 2s which are...

    The Cambridge s30 seems like a nice speaker for modest 5.1 movie/music duty. The s50 center doesn't seem to have anywhere near the positive comments. Is this a bad choice at the pricepoint? I'd like to keep things voicematched as well as I can.

    I don't care about looks or whatnot. I just want the best sound. Which would give me that for mainly music? or what about the PSB - Alpha B1?

    Hey guys, I just bought a S30 during thanksgiving. I love it overall. But the internal speakers really suck, well, like the ones on any other TVs. I have a pair of Harman kardon soundsticks 2, which only come with a 3.5mm audio jack as input method. So far, on the back of the TV, I only found...

    Pretty much what the title says. I've been looking at building an Elekit tube amp, but I'd also consider commercial offerings. Anyone have any ideas in this range? My source is a modded Peachtree Decco. My conundrum here is that I will probably upgrade my speakers to something full-sized...

    Hi, i'm new here looking for help on a speaker decesion. I've narrowed my choices to these 2 speakers. It will mainly be used for movies/tv viewing. The room is an open loft on the 2nd floor which is open to the 1st floor. Seating is about 10'-12' away. The speakers will be on a cabinet/shelf...

    So the speakers I was considering as an upgrade were the PSB B6 and KEF Q300. However, I may go with an Emotiva 10 sub if it will enhance my music more than the speakers. What wouuld you guys recommend? This is out of a Peachtree Decco btw. --original post This is basically where I'm at. I'm...
