    Hi There,

    I was wondering if anyone has paired up the Yamaha RX-V375 with the newer Q Acoustics 3000 speakers? I have a BK Gemini Mk2 Sub too. Just looking for any advice before I pull the trigger really ;-)

    Was thinking the 3020 for fronts and 3010 for the rears.

    Many Thanks!

    B

    The 3000 range of speakers are going to be very similar to the 2000 series and many people have paired these with Yamaha 3xx series AVRs so you should have no issues with the system you suggest. In terms of quality levels they are also fairly consistent with each other as well.

    Not quite the same setup but I have the QA 2010i's at the front with the 2000Ci centre speaker paired with the Yamaha RX-S600 amp and I'm really happy with the setup.

    By the way, I'm looking to get the Van Damme Professional Blue Series Studio Grade 2 x 1.5 mm cables from Amazon. Would I be better off buying the lengths indivually or buying a long one and cutting it in half so to speak (it looks cheaper to do the latter)?

    Just buy a long length and cut it up. I would go for 2.5mm for the front and centre though.

    How much of a difference do the 2.5mm deliver? I dont mind going the little extra if its worth doing.
    Also same for the rears or can they be on 1.5?

    I'd go better than the V375 though

    Yeah would be nice to have something abit more mid-range but I already have that receiver, my first dip into this kind of set up. Will cross that bridge of changing it when I get to it of course =D

    2.5mm or above is generally the advised size to go for and that will mean you will not have to think about speaker cable for a long time to come. Often people say you can get away with thinner for the rears but I would still prefer to go for 2.5mm. For the small amount extra it is I feel it gives piece of mind that your speaker cables are not affecting the performance of your system in anyway. Whether you would be able to hear any significance difference between the 2 thicknesses is another matter since any difference is most likely going to be small.

    Thanks for that info, will keep all that in mind.

    Ok I have now ordered the fronts and the cabling, will deal with the rears in a month or two ;-)
