I am just in the process of buying a whole new entertainment system, got my basement flooded! Anyhow, I am debating between the Marantz 7500 and the Yamaha 2500. I am leaning towards the Marantz. As for my speakers, I have a hard time to decide. I have been looking at the Paradigm Studio 60, Axiom Epic 60 and the Boston Acoustic VR2. Any help would be appreciated.
I'll agree with Art. I listened to smaller speakers in their lines, but came to the same conclusion on the Boston vs Paradigm comparison. I'm running a Marantz/Paradigm combo & can say they match well. The Yamaha is nice, but IMHO seems to spend too much of their build budget on not very useful bells & whistles.
Thanks. Have you listen to the Axiom at all. It seems like many reviews compare both the Paradigm with the Axiom. I have listen to the Studio 60 & 100 but never got the chance to listen to the Axiom products.
