I am in the process of upgrading my Paradigm Monitor 5’s to Studio 40’s through my local dealers 100% trade in on Paradigm upgrades. I have to say, the monitor 5’s are great, but the Studio 40’s are just amazing speakers, especially for 2-channel music! I’m perfectly happy with my CC-350 center and Mini-monitor rears, but 2-channel is just lacking a little and I love my music in 2-channel. Anyway, I would love to upgrade to separate components, but right now I’ll be running these with my Yamaha RX-V800.

Would it make sense to get a good but inexpensive 2-channel amp and bi-amp the 40’s with my Yamaha taking the highs and the new amp taking the lows, or would I be just a well off to bi-wire the 40’s with just my Yamaha? Does anyone have the RX-V800 and the 40’s? What do you think?


Also, if bi-amping is recommended, I would really like to find an amp for maybe $200. New or used but in good condition would be fine. Is this even possible? If I couldn’t get an amp for less than that, I may just sell my 800 and consider buying the $999 Harman Kardon 2.0 / 2.1 pre/pro/amp combo special to upgrade to seperates. Would this combo make the 40’s sing much better than my Yammy for 2-channel music? I know this is a lot to cover with one topic, but any help would be appreciated. Thanks! David


One more thing...


How would the DAC's in the HK seperates compare to those in my Yamaha receiver? Thanks! David
