Good stuff Dennis! Thanks for the really thorough write up.
With a room just a hair under 2100 ft^3 I think the A3rx would be more than sufficient for your needs. The bonus is they're in stock now, so you can get up and running immediately.I'm really lost as to which ARX to choose for a small 13'x16'x10' room with a servo sub.
My heart wants the A5rx-c but I heard the A3rx-c for some reason are the best for 2 channel music.
I'm a music guys so it's a no brainier to get the A2rx-c for my side channels for the rare occasion I listen to SACD's. I will be running 3 of the same up front or maybe just 2 as I just have one LP.
There's certainly nothing wrong with that subwoofer.I wish... Paradigm Servo 15 Version 1.
Given what you have now, I'd suggest the E/F15HP instead. It would better match the capabilities of the Paradigm.The end plan are 2 F12 or F12G's as long as the Canadian dollar gets better.
The general consensus is the tweeter should indeed be around ear height, and I wouldn't deviate from that with the Chane's myself.Question for you experts here: How tall should the stands be for these speakers? I understand that you normally want the tweeter to be about ear height when sitting. Is that the case with these speakers as well? By my quick calculations, I would need a 30 inch stand. I would think that would be unusually tall. Am I off base in thinking this? All answers are very much appreciated.
