  • @DSkip - I appreciate the suggestion. Maybe I’ll wait then as see when they come out, assuming I can hold out because I’ve been bitten pretty hard! Lol.
  • DSkip wrote: » One option your dealer should mention is the A52+. This will be 180 WPC and 5 channels, meaning you could leave your amp to handle the atmos channels. The A52+ will retail at $3,000. If you are considering the A21, then the A52+ …
  • So I’ve hooked up the A21, found a little more in the budget, and I can definitely tell that the amp opened up the speakers. Even my wife, who is not into this at all, commented on how it sounds more open. So my dilemma is whether to get the A21 or …
  • So I didn't win the bid on HCA-2003 but it looks like I'll get an opportunity to demo a Parasound A21 this weekend. Found a local guy who has is own shop and consulting gig who offered to loan me an A21 for a week to see how I like it. I was really …

  • Thanks Walt. Another question for you, with any of these older amps, how do know what the lifespan is on these? What typically goes out on them first and what kind of cost might I be looking at to repair an amp like these? I know that’s kind of hard…

  • Appreciate the input. The A31 is what I would get if money wasn’t an object, but unfortunately that’s out of my price range. I bet it sounds amazing.
  • Clipdat wrote: » Personally I would go for the three channel, as the center channel is in my opinion arguably the most important and heavily used in a HT setup. I was leaning in that direction. From what I’ve read Parasound seems the way …
  • Bump! Any advice/recommendations regarding my post above? Trying to stay around the $1k mark or less. Thanks in advance.
  • Not to hijack this thread, but along the same lines, I’ve read conflicting opinions about getting a 3 channel amp for home theater use (L/R/C) vs just getting a 2 channel and connecting that to the L/R and letting the AVR handle the center and surro…
  • @Upstatemax Thanks for the input. I’m thinking they should be fine for ATMOS. @mdaudioguy I appreciate the info.

  • Very nice! I have the 5030UB and I love it so I can only imagine what the 5040 must be like.

  • DSkip wrote: » Bigger is not always better. Most here including me feel that the 705 is the Better speaker. What makes the 705’s better speakers? I just picked up the 707 package for my home theater. I love them, but I’m gonna need a dedica…
  • Got it! Thanks. So I’ve decided to get either a 2 or 3 channel amp and call it a day based on all the feedback you guys have provided. Currently bidding on a Parasound HCA-2003 (200x3). Hopefully that pans out. If not, maybe I’ll just go for a 2 cha…
  • Appreciate the responses! To clarify, I’m probably gonna sell the 703’s and just run a 5.1 for right now and then eventually add atmos speakers for a 5.1.2 or 5.1.4 as I don’t have wall space for a 7.1 system. My main focus are the 707’s and the 706…
  • Thanks @EndersShadow. I just received everything today and hooked up the the 707’s and 706 to the 2070. Sounds good, much better than my TSx440t’s, but I can tell they are wanting more power. Gonna try and get that HCA-2003 soon and go for something…
  • Ok. Didn’t take long and I’m back for more. I have an opportunity to pick up a parasound 5125 for about $500. I believe it is 125 wpc x 5 channels and I’m not sure if that’s enough to power the 707’s. Any thoughts? Am I better getting the HCA-2003?
  • @WLDock @cfrizz Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it. It’s funny that you mention the HCA-2003 because I was just looking at that last night. It’s actually the one you linked. I might have to snag that. Everyone has been really helpful …
  • rooftop59 wrote: » As a general rule of thumb, speakers that can hit 35hz @ -3db can and probably should be run full range for HT. Per professional reviews the LSiM707 are -3db @34 and -6 @ 30, so I would run them full range. Let your sub handle t…
  • Earthy wrote: » Not trying to hijack you thread, but similar question. My HT is 15x14x8 enclosed. I picked up a Denon AVR-x6400h before finding the deal on a full 7 speaker LSiM 707 kit. Will the 140 watts be enough to drive those 707's in my sm…
  • Thanks everyone for the great feedback. I should have mentioned that I have a HSU sub which I love and highly recommend. I think I’m going to try running the system both ways and see which one sounds better to me, but running the 707’s full range se…
