New Marantz SR8400. Lkg 4 comments on existing speakers please!


Unregistered guest
I was fortunate enough to acquire a Marantz SR8400 a few days ago (price was too hard to resist). I am waiting to receive it, so I can replace my Pioneer Elite VSX-43TX.

I am looking for feedback about how my speakers will sound with the SR8400:
I own a pair of Infinity Overture 2 (3 way with dual woofers, plus built-in down-firing sub) as fronts.
Paradigm LCR-450, used as center.
Advent Laureates, used as rears.
(And a Tympani 15" power sub which is NOT being used at the moment).

I know it is a bit of a mish mash with respect to speakers to say the least... :-)

Any comments on how these speakers will sound with the Marantz?

(I'll have to look up my password tonight so I can post with my registered ID again).

No one can tell you how your speakers will sound in your home environment. Chances are if they sound okay with the Elite they should be okay with the Marantz. Congrats on the purchase, I'm envious.

Thanks 'My Rantz'. Nice play on words...

Yes, I am excited about getting it, especially for such a great price!

I understand they can't tell me exactly how it will sound.
I meant in general terms how well the Infinity speakers would match up with the Marantz; my main concern is the fronts.

Yes, I did like they way they sounded with the Elite.
