Yup indeed we had posed comments ab out the 750 prior to their release in the AVR600 thread if i am not mistaken, but you are rigt Canada, the 750s are officially out .

I am sure it will perform like no other

I mean the quality of the binding posts on this unit seem nothing less than outstanding.

Default Arcam AVR 750 on the way.

I have been the proud owner of the Arcam AVR 600 since it came out. Have not had a chance to update my signature here. I justpurchased the Sony XBR-65X900A,which should be here next week, my HX929 will be moved to another room,since I upgraded my tv, I had to go and upgrade my receiver. I like to keep up to date on all the latest stuff out there. I can't wait to get everything all hooked up. When I do I will post a few pics and review.

congrats on the AVR upgrade. I keep thinking to myself, If I upgrade AVRs one day should I try the Arcam 380/450? might have to... but the anthems look nice too. we'll see one day

looks like youre going to get some Dynaudios next huh? which Focus are you looking into? I love the 160/210C combo I have with my setup.

I am thinking of going with the 340 and 210C. I also want a rear channel,what do you thing about using the 160 on stands? I don't even know if you can hang these on the wall. Speaker upgrade will be the last piece of my puzzle. How long have you had the Focus? John

The 340s are nice, they need space to breathe tho, so by your picture it looks like the Q900s are backed up against the wall about 10" off? youll need about 2+ feet off the wall and 8 feet between the speakers. My 160s are 18" off the rear, when I had 260s in my house they had to be 24" off the rear otherwise the bass was way too heavy. Honestly, for surrounds, the 160s might be overkill, but Im sure it would sound awesome. I dont think you want to hang them on the wall. They need a good 18" inches so they dont sound boomy. I use the DM2/6s and sometimes think maybe I should have got Dali Lektor 2s and saved some money, they would have sounded close enough. But there have been some times where those DMs pulled their weight and really came thru. I have had the 160s for a year, had the Excite X16s for 2 yrs prior to that. I got the 210C last month. 2 months before that I had upgraded my Naim Nait 5i to the Naim Nait XS that I have now. Steve

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the info. I am in a different house now than the one that is in my profile pic that is here. Thanks for the info. I want to set everything up so it sounds perfect,so maybe something smaller might be better to go with. Don't want to spend more money than I have to and it be overkill for my living room. Right now, I am stuck renting a house, and will be looking to buy something later on down the road,so maybe I will just keep the KEF's until then. It never ends with the upgrade bug! John

The 260s can provide all the bass you want if you want something smallish with very good dynamics. When I had a pair if them in my house for testing, my old sub gave out and I ran the 260s full range and movies never lost impact. They are rated to 32hz but I kid you not if hey handled 25 hz much better then I expected. The 160s are close but if pushing lower 30hz frequencies at high spls they'll bottom out but down to 40 hz they'll handle just about anything very well and very dynamically. Of course you could get the focus speakers and find an older pair of focus 110s for surround use, they're a surprisingly good small speaker.
How big is your room? Mine is 16 wide and 14 deep, with an attached 9x9 dining room. The 160d can at loud in there.

Guess what, the stuff that you just bought is already obsolete. Its hard to keep up with the latest stuff. For example, everyone waiting to jump to 4K TV, 8K TV is already set to make 4K obsolete.

All the so-called latest stuff sometimes isn't worth it. So be thoughtful, practical on how you spend your money.

Have you thought about auditioning some Totems?

They're supposed to be an excellent match with Arcam.

Not that bad of a match but there much better matches out there for 2 channel at least.

What do you think is a better match for the Arcam 750 than Totem?

My post was more the other way around, there are better match to Totems than Arcam but it's a very good one. I am sure Mission Speakers sound really good with Arcam.

rhett used to run his Dyn C2s and Sapphires with the Arcam AVR600. im sure that Arcam matches up pretty well with most higher end speakers for music and ht tho.

Yup indeed and the AVR750 is apparently putting the 600 to shame.

I just upgraded from the Arcam AVR 600 to the AVR 750, didn't think things could get much better, my AVR 600 was fantastic. Well let me just say, night and day difference between the AVR 600 and AVR 750! So happy that I upgraded, now it's time to get some new speakers!

Glad you were able to confirm what I had been told since I did not get to hear the 750 yet.

I am going to check out the Dynaudio Focus series and the PSB Synchrony Ones. The soundstage is so much broader with the 750. With better speakers its going to be much better.
