Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Can i can say i have experienced true HTR Upgraded to R700's,R400.R100's(2) pairs and (2) Pairs of R900's. I have had different variations of a home theater systems since 2000 and have enjoyed them all, But Wow this takes it to a new level Everything i throw at them is more clean crisp and dramatic than ever before. And for those of you who believe home theater systems are not suitable for Music you have not heard the R700's paired with a good quality amp and when you do you will not be disappointed!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rock n' roll speakers Love the bass, and they'll play loud without sounding harsh even with typically bad rock recordings.

Questions

If I use the R700 in stereo mode for a home theatre (no additional speakers), is there any enhanced experience in terms of Movies sound? Or is it just simple Stereo?

Asked by: R700Fan
Hello, This depends if your receiver or amp applies anything specific to the stereo mode. The speakers will play back what they receive and in stereo, it is likely just a stereo signal that is being pushed to the speakers.

Hello there, could you recommend a few Stereo Receivers that will give me maximum power from these speakers? I'm interested in receivers as opposed to amplifiers as I'd like to have blue-tooth connectivity.

Asked by: R700Fan
Hello, We typically find ourselves pairing our speakers with Marantz and Denon receivers. Even their amps will have HEOS and Bluetooth connectivity, that is an option if you are looking to build a stereo only system. Higher wattage will not result in better sound, only how loud the speakers can be pushed. If you are looking for better sound, find a receiver or amp that has cleaner circuitry. This is where we would recommend a Marantz product which are known for their clean and excellent sound.

In the previous question, I did not have room to say that I tried a Denon DRA800H to drive these speakers R700s before I tried the Onkyo TX 8270. It was worse than the Onkyo. Do I need more power? Can you advise? Thank you much for your consideration..

Asked by: RYOUNG
Hello, I just noticed this question as well. In addition to the previous response, you could also try the pre outs on the Denon DRA-900H https://www.denon.com/en-us/product/av-receivers/dra-900h/300788.html I believe this coupled with room treatment will result in the sound you are seeking.

I just received the R700s. I love them!!! I purchased the Onkyo TX 8270 to run them in stereo. When I get much above 60-65 in volume I start getting a fair amount of distortion. I love full/loud music and this is driving me crazy. Can you advise.

Asked by: RYOUNG
Hello, thank you for purchasing the R700s. First, I would suggest using a Denon with pre out's, allowing you to experiment with external amplification. The AVR-X3800H has preouts available for the front left and right speakers allowing a bit more flexibility in your setup (https://www.denon.com/en-us/product/av-receivers/avr-x3800h/300609-new.html.) After this, take a good look at your room acoustics and setup as this may have a big factor in how sound is heard in the room. If you have a lot of tile and hard surface furniture that may be causing a lot of reflections and room nodes, Area rugs and curtains go a long way in helping reduce those acoustical phenomenon which may be contributing to the sound you are experiencing. Here is a great article in how room acoustics can affect sound https://www.audioholics.com/room-acoustics/listening-room-acoustics

I just bought the r700s with the r400 centre. I’m wondering if it is ok to run my old Denon avr891 until I can replace with a better receiver?

Asked by: Bladude
Hello, Yes - it is okay to use your AVR981 to drive the R700s and R400.
