Re: home theatre equip


Hi kjb.  I just recently puchased the Yamaha RX-V750 receiver
(http://www.yamaha.ca/av/receivers.jsp?from=products ) at $730 Canadian, and
the Audition range of Athena speakers F2, B2, C1
(http://athenaspeakers.com/auditionSeriesSpeakers.htm ) along with the
AS-P400 subwoofer ($600, $200, $230, $380 Canadian respectively).  I'm
absolutely amazed at the quality of sound I'm getting, but I can't really
compare it to anything else, since I listened to everything in stereo before
this new setup.  I've read reviews in which the editor says that for the
quality of the Athena speakers, he would have expected a price tag of maybe
double what they retail for.  And Yamaha is a great brand for receivers,
especially if you get an RX-V650 or higher, as it includes the YPAO, which
automatically calibrates the speakers to give the best possible sound.  My
RX-V750 is considered mid-range, I think.  Most of the serious audiophiles
I've spoken to who have a Yamaha receiver have the RX-V1500 or 2500.

There's so much to choose from, I know.  Keep checking the online
magazines/websites/archives (audioholics.com is my favourite) for articles
and forums to help you figure it out.  I also like ecoustics.com, which
lists editor reviews and user reviews.  Good luck!
