Help me buy a fierce sound system
 
Hello fellas,

I am researching buying a fierce sound system for my place. There seems to be alot out there with concern to systems that have amps, many small speakers, towers, and others.

What does an amp do? What are the measurements of wattage?

Best buy? Any good websites? Im trying to spend some big bucks on it

Thanks

I heard BSW is releasing the Stage 2 amp soon. You should wait for that to become available. :D

I have some Infinity Beta 50 tower speakers for sale. It will pain me to sell them for this price, but....$1k and they are yours. Free shipping. Barely used.

I've heard you can get an amazing deal from a white van parked outside of Best Buy or other electronics retailers.

This is very true. I hear the systems are worth $3000, but they only sell them for $300. Quite a deal.

OP, troll these forums and become a learned man: http://www.avsforum.com/

Check out HTD speakers. Just got the Level Twos for my place and have been very impressed. Crisp, clear, precise sounding speakers with good presence and broad soundstage. They are a bit power hungry, but they sound great when ya crank em.

Derp. High end audio is even more polarized than the automobile world. Pick up Stereophile, The Absolute Sound, look at avsforum and you should come out okay. Best Buy Magnolia is fairly decent for a super mainstream selection of decent amplifiers, receivers and components.

The CM series of B&W is good for mainstream audio names.

Marantz is good, so is Denon, Pioneer, etc for receivers. Look for an Airplay compatible receiver.

Two common misconceptions: All amplifiers do NOT sound the same (some say they do), and power is not everything. Pay attention to the efficiency of the speakers that you buy and you won't need gobs of power.

I don't think you'll be buying any sort of record breaking system this time around (and with your level of knowledge), so go test out speakers and see which you like best. Much of high end audio is subjective and personal preference.

Side note: Magnolia may try and push you on the Martin Logan speakers they sell- to me they sound incredibly boosted and just... bad. Stay away.

Second side note: A good sub will be necessary for this "fierce" sound that you desire- and it'll cost more than you expect it to.

I would say give us your rough budget- but you have a lot of research to do before we get there.

this can be answered so many ways depending on experience and cash flow

so, i'll answer it with what i would go with

4 of the biggest boston acoustic speakers you can afford, and a pioneer receiver with a klipsch or the like sub


what does an amp do? are you srs?

v8 5 02-12-2013 02:47 PM

Yea, what is it with these guys? Is their product just straight crap? I've had one stop me in the mall parking lot one time and another yell at me in traffic "HEY MAN! WANNA BUY SOME STEREO EQUIPMENT!?" I was about to throw my lit cigarette into his van but the light had turned green.

I have a buddy that bought speakers from the white van scammers once. He claims to this day that they are high end speakers even after I've apprised him of the scam. They are obnoxiously large and just say "stereo" on the woofer. :rofl:
