well its been a while since ive been on here. Ive changed my setup big time since ive last posted. I am now running a 2.1 movie/music set up. what i came from was : paradigm stuido 60v4 front paradigm studio cc690 v4 center paradigm atom v6 rears 2 svs pb12nsd emotiva xpa-5 im now running, paradigm mini monitor v7 fronts 1 svs pb12nsd all off my anthem mrx300 (was using as pre pro) now i did have my mini monitors on my pc set up that was powered by an emotiva mini-x amp, and it seemed like they were more punchy. Now i like to listen to my music at low volume anywhere from -45 to -35. I do use my svs pb12nsd but find it to be to boomy for low volume. Now i was thinking of adding a svs sb12nsd for music only and use the pb12nsd for movies. Or i could add an amp something like 150w/ch or at low volume i wont hear a difference at all? For movies i enjoy it, but def notice a difference from when everything was on the xpa-5 (noticed it when i put the studio 60 back on the receiver only). Oh also how i listen to music is stream/ iTunes from my macbook air to my emo xda-2, then to my anthem mrs 300.
