I also have just gotten in the 350THX system, with the sub upgraded to the 15" 374PBM, and an extra set of dipole surrounds. I will be driving them with the Lexicon MC1 and seven (7) Marantz MA500 Monoblocks. Atlantic Technologies says the 15" sub is be a better overall match for the 350 system. Incidentally, the only difference between the 370THX and 350THX system is the 15" versus 12" sub. I haven't gotten my Pre/Pro yet, but when I do, I will post let you know how they sound.
The "$1697 with peds" special on onecall.com is no longer. The 350THX system was upgraded by Atlantic Technologies (at least the model numbers of the individual speakers have changed), and the price was only on the "older" speakers. They have a $1797 special for a single 12" sub, no pedestals. The dual 12" sub with all peds is now $2199.
As an alternate source, Tom Young of CinemaSource.com says he will beat onecall's price by $100. I bought mine from Tom. The sub upgrade cost me $694. The extra surrounds were $349. two front and four rear stands set me back $300. Total cost of the speaker system, LCR, Sides, Rears, 15" sub, all pedestals is $3042.
FYI, the "new" 350 THX system model numbers for the individual speakers are:
- 351LR is now 350LR
- 352PBM is now 350PBM
- 353C is now 350C
- 354SR is now 350SR
