Good morning. I’ve recently purchased KEF R11 towers, r2c center, ci200 rears, pb3000 subs and an Arcam 390 receiver. Any suggestions for an amp?
Thank you. Unfortunately, I know very little about all of this. I’m wanting to get the best sound and loudness to match the capabilities of the pb3000s for movies and music while not overworking the receiver.The Magnolia Center team seems to think it will be fine without an amp, but I don’t want to get stuck wishing I had just added one in the beginning. It’s an open floor plan, approximately 40’x30’ to the walls. The sitting area is about 16’x22’ and the ceiling is vaulted going from 8’ at the wall to about 14’ in the center of the room.Welcome to the Forum.
Some more information is needed. What is the amp needed for? Are you talking about a power amp or an integrated stereo amp with HT by-pass for music?
The Arcam is a good receiver in it's own right but it's output will depend on the size of the room your KEFs are in. The R Series do like a good current supply to perform at their best and in that respect the Arcam may just be a little shy on power depending on room size. In that respect a diagram of your room with dimensions will also help members to help you.
Bfonseca, I ended up going with the McIntosh MC207 and it was finally all installed last night. I can’t turn it up until they break in and it still needs to be tuned with Dirac, but I am very pleased already. The clarity is superb!
