I have been chewing up these pages for over a year now. This is truly a great cyber community. I have been building up my system over the years. I was smitten by ML when I heard the Vistas for the first time when it was introduced. I then vowed to own ML speakers someday.
My current system cosists of an Adcom 7605 multi-channel amp (125 w x 5) all channels drive into 8 ohms (175 w into 4). Denon AVR 3300 receiver performing pre/pro duties for the front and centre and amplifying the rear speakers.
The speakers (fronts and centre) consist of Paradigm Monitor series (the original version) and Mordaunt Short (Mezzo 1) for the rears. So this past weekend, I was strollying our local store and came across a demo Matinee. This was selling for $1,800 new up here (I believe list price was $1,495 in the States). So after listening, looking for any cosmetic flaws and heavy duty haggling, I bit the bullet and bought it for $825.
Hooked up to the Adcom, I have to confess - it sings! I am hearing subtle sounds which were absent before.
The speaker upgrade path will be with a pair of Theos and eventually a Depth I.
I am wondering whether anyone on the site has similar electronics like mine and care to share their tips and experiences.
