So this weekend the wife and I bought something for ourselves, something we haven't done much of over the last few years...
Background: We upgraded our receiver and bought a HDTV when our prior pair both died last fall...
So I have a Denon AVR-790.
Don't laugh at me, but it is currently driving the following speakers:
Mains: 2 Cerwin Vega D-1 loudspeakers, circa 1988! (Purchased when I was young and working for Uncle Sam)
Surrounds: KLH center/rear surr.
Sub: Aiwa (eek) powered sub, about 10 years old.
This weekend we discovered the Newegg sale on Monitor 60's.
So we ordered a pair. While we were at it we went ahead and ordered the CS10 center, PSW-10 sub and Monitor 30s for the surrounds.
So, am I in for a culture shock or what? :) All these years we've enjoyed the CW's, but I have a sneaking suspicion that we are going to be amazed by the difference, even with just the mains upgrade, especially at lower volumes.
UPS shows delivery will be today, so I am watching the minutes tick by at work. Can't wait to hook em up and run Audacity and see what we've done :)
I have older 10 or 12 ga monster cable for the mains and center and will install banana plugs tonight.
Any tips on setup with the 790?
Run Audacity and then tweak levels as needed?
Any tips on break-in?
