Does anyone know why Infinity gets very little attention on here? I was told that Infinity was not a "good match" for my HK630 but wasn't told why. I have always found Infinity to be on the bright side thus seemingly a decent compliment to the HK.
Blazer, just fyi, I am running Infinity's with my HK and it sounds wonderful. There is a sweetness that was not there with my prior receiver. The HK seemed to balance them out and controls them perfectly.
Are you looking at a particular model?
Hopefully others will chime in with more opinion for you.
NC AV: I have listned to the Alpha series and thought they sounded "sweet" witth the HK. From a cost/benefit standpoint, I found them to work nicely. I was just inquiring because they are never mentioned on here and I was actually told they wouldn't work with HK.
Max, Best of luck with your combo. One of the frequent contributors on this site, Hawk, (who sounds quite informed and is very helpful)suggeted that both Infinity and JBL would be poor matches with my HK avr630. Parent companies or not, I was just surprised and looking to see if anyone else had a similar or contradicting opinion.
I've listned to the Alpha bookshelves and they sounded very clean with the HK. They are also in my price range. I can't afford to refinance my house for a new HT system. Dollar for dollar (US that is) I find HK to give me the best bang for my proverbial buck. I now would like to find the same in my speakers. Any thoughts on JBL with HK? I know Harman Int'l owns all 3. I don't know if that means anything (NAD & PSB), but would be very interested in knowing. Thanks Uni
I have an AVR 525, with Alpha 50's in the front, an Alpha center, and Alpha 20's in the rear, the system sounds wonderful. Music is MY primary concern, but my kids and wife all want great HT, so this is where the combination came from.
I listen to everything from Dave Matthews, to Hillary Hahn, and I am perfectly pleased with this set. The more time I took to tune the HK to the speakers, the better it sounded.
