    Flush LCR or Curved LCR like in Dolby diagrams, with angled baffle

    Evening all. Query RE placement of LCR - to arc or flush, and impact on baffle wall. I note in the Dolby speaker diagrams they typically have the LCR shown in an arc so speakers are equidistant to the MLP, rather than speakers flush to the wall. Like in the image below. I know speaker...

    Anyone have experience with the Paradigm MILLENIA LP TRIO?

    HI all! Does anyone have experience with the Paradigm MILLENIA LP TRIO? I was considering buying one for my Left/Center/Right speakers in a 5.2 setup at home. These things are super thin and I'm still a bit skeptical that they can really pump out good sounds as thin as they are. All the reviews...

    Please recommend a passive LCR speaker bar with widest possible channel separation (imaging)

    Short version: I am looking for a recommendation for a passive LCR speaker bar that would provide the widest sound stage (or is it imaging?). I mean left/right separation for TV and movie watching in a family room. I will be adding a sub and 2 surrounds shortly after, but this is about the LCR...

    New LCR speakers for apartment living room (2700 cu ft)

    Hi All, So I recently got into a new apartment and have been upgrading my AV gear. Started with a 65" TV added 2x10" monoprice monolith 10" THX subwoofers. The last remaining bit is the speakers. I have an old Polk monitor 30s (with CS2 centers) which are clearly no match for the subwoofers and...

    New M&K LCR 750 speakers as surrounds with existing S125/S125C & V-1250THX ?

    Some 20 years ago I bought a 5.1 M&K speaker package consisting of 750THX (LCR), 550THX (surrounds) and a V-1250THX sub. Owing to repeated magnetic shielding issues with the centre channel (back then a problem for the old CRT Televisions !) the 750s were freely upgraded to S125/C speakers. The...

    Advice on In-wall LCR for £1200 ea (£3600 total)

    Is it possible to have LCR only on a Denon AVR?

    I have a Denon X4400H in a 5.1 setup which can play stereo sources (e.g. TV shows on iPlayer etc) either as stereo through the front left and right with no centre channel, or with Dolby Surround and friends which tend to put lots of sounds, particularly music, into the surround channels. Is it...

    First-time used 3.1 system. Recommendations on the LCR speakers.

    Hello so I am building up a 3.1 sound system (I intend to upgrade to 5.1 eventually). Buying everything used. So far I have a receiver (Denon AVR-X2200) and a subwoofer (BK XLS300 PR), so would need the three speakers. Buying used means it might be hard to match the LR with the C I assume, but...

    Question Power Amp for M&K S85 LCR Speakers

    I have an S85 front and centre speaker set up with K4 rear surrounds. They are powered by a Denon AVR 4311. Would there be any benefit running the front LCR S85 speakers through an Arcam Alpha 10 P3? The alternative is to run front Left and Right S85 through a Behringer A500, or just stick with...

    Question 3 x NAD C268 for LCR duties?

    I have just seen a rather decent price for NAD's C268 power amps and was wondering if there would be much in the way of benefit for using 3 of them as LCR amps running from a Marantz SR7009? I would be using them in mono mode so 300w per channel which I know is a lot and more than enough, so I...

    Tannoy XT-8F and Arendal 1723 center as LCR

    I've just added to my second system an Arendal center to go with my Tannoy XT-8F's and I must say it seems to work very well, an amazing breadth of sound emanating from the front stage. I do't even switch the sub on most of the time as I'm in an apartment but tbh there's never been a point where...

    Question Monoprice 10565 LCR Upgrade

    I have been doing a lot of research, along with listening to speakers in the local Magnolia of BB. I will say this- out of the B&W, Elac, Klipsch, Definitive Tech, and Martin Logan, I definitely prefer the sound of the Def Tech speakers. They seem to have more "oomph" and depth to them, rather...
