New Focals Praised by Reviewers

Gold Sound had the U.S premier of the new Focal 948 speaker. STEREOPHILE praised the naturalness of its sound. We're the only Colorado dealer stocking Focal's new 906 bookshelf & 926 tower speakers, as well as the 948. The 906, $1500/pair, the smallest & most affordable Aria speaker, was just called "Terrific" by ABSOLUTE SOUND. The 900 speakers have quickly become our most popular quality speakers. European magazines have awarded the 926 & 948 "Product of the Year" awards. The 948, the largest & best Aria speaker, is $5000/pair. The 926, the smallest & most affordable Aria tower, is $3299/pair.

Customers tell us that the new Focal 948 for $5000/pair has far better imaging, bass response & dynamics than other stores' $10,000 speakers. People have traded in late model B&W, Paradigm & Klipsch towers for new Focal bookshelf speakers.

All Aria speakers feature better sounding drivers with flax-cone woofers & midranges, plus new aluminum-magnesium tweeters, reducing distortion by 50%. Arias are 8 ohms & about 92db efficiency, or four times as efficient as many competitors. You can use solid state amps or tube amps, like our 35 watt/channel Prima Luna amps. The Arias have sleek, attractive styling with black lacquer or walnut wood veneer. 

The new Focal speakers have higher efficiency, plus deeper bass than many competitors. Almost every Focal speaker has 90db or more efficiency. Some new B&W speakers are only 84db efficient. Most Focals are 4 to 5 times more efficient. The $1899 Focal 726 floorstanding speaker has 91.5db efficiency & bass response to 49hz within 3db. A similar-sized $2200 B&W has less than half the efficiency & bass response to only 69hz. 

The $1500 Focal 906 bookshelf speaker has higher efficiency, 10hz deeper bass response & is less than half the height of a B&W for $400 more. The Focal 906 also has 35hz deeper bass response & is smaller than  a Klipsch for $1,000 more.

We now have the new Focal 700 models on display. People love their sound. We have had many speakers traded in, including five different B&W models & Paradigm & Klipsch towers.

How to Improve your Home Theater System

Most home theater receivers have power ratings that melt away like a snow man in the hot sun. HOME THEATER tested a $600  Denon receiver rated at 125W/ch. With all channels running, the tested power is under 53 watts/ch. However, you can easily fix this problem.

If your receiver has preamp outputs, hooking up a good separate power amp makes your system come alive. Beyond getting a larger quantity of watts, you'll get far better quality watts. Power amps have more robust power supplies, which enable them to have richer & deeper bass, plus imaging that you can touch & feel.

HOME THEATER compared a $5200 Denon & $7000 Lexicon receiver with a $2000 Marantz power amp. The amp "easily won in every department, especially treble transient clarity, transparency & resolution, with an airy, open & extended yet sweet top end; far superior to Denon, which was closed in & opaque. The Marantz amp produced complete sonic satisfaction at any volume; combined delicacy, detail, transparency & a velvety overall sheen. Bass more supple, subtle, better textured & less mechanical than the Denon. I doubt any receiver at any price can match the amp's sonic performance." 

The Parasound A21 stereo amp, 125-200W/ch & $995,  improves  most receivers. The 125W is the 8 ohm power; 200W is the 4 ohm power.  The A21, 250-400W/ch & $2495 has far more wattage & better quality watts than any AV receiver. The new Parasound A31, $3295, has the same power as the A21, but has three channels, for the front left, right & center. Parasound also makes several fine five channel power amps.

HOME THEATER

     Big TVs are not home theater systems. Over 80% of all big screens sold over the past 5 years were sold without an audio system. The speakers in a $1000 TV are only 1" across & cost under a dollar. The amps inside big screen TVs have very low power, often under 10 watts & very high distortion, 10% or more. Even our smallest & least expensive speakers [under $100/pair] sound far better than the speakers in big screen TVs.

     The sound system is an essential part of the home theater experience. Much of the enjoyment of action movies comes from hearing the soundtrack. We have new home theater systems with a Yamaha HDMI receiver, 5 speakers & a subwoofer, starting under $900.  Our better home theater systems can sound better than systems in movie theaters.   

    HOME THEATER & many other magazines recommend MARANTZPLAYBACK magazine top-rated a Marantz above all other AV receivers tested. "What made it a standout design is just how easy it was to install & use. We never had to consult the owner's manual to get the job done. The remote deserves special mention. It's just so darn well laid out & easy to master; it also helps that it's completely backlit, so we could actually see all the buttons in our darkened home theater." It was the only receiver earning the highest grades for user interface, plus movie & music sound quality. 

    MARANTZ AV receivers have seven discrete amplifier channels, plus HDMI 2.0, which is necessary for Blue Ray & 3D DVDs. The NR1403 is  only 4" high, the same size as Marantz Blue Ray players.  Most Marantz AV receivers include HDMI video upconverting, pre outs for every channel, A/B speaker switching, front panel AV inputs & a front panel USB input.

     All Marantz CD's, amps, receivers & DVD's have 3 years parts & labor warranties. Reviewers praise MARANTZ for its sound, ease of use & comprehensive, intuitive remote controls. DVD's, plasmas & projectors are a reference standard.      
      YAMAHA AV receivers start with the $279 RX379. Inputs include 4 HDMI, 1 USB, 2 RCA digital, 1 Toslink [or optical], 2 RCA analog & 2 RCA video composite. 
     The YAMAHA RX479 AV receiver lists for $450, your cost $399, adds many features. Inputs include 6 HDMI, 1 USB, 2 RCA digital, 1 Toslink [or optical], 3 RCA analog & 3 RCA video composite. It includes
wired & wireless internet connections, plus is compatible with Yamaha's wireless Musicast speakers. This $249/ea. speaker lets you put the Yamaha RX479 sound wirelessly throughout your home. The speakers can work directly with bluetooth devices. 
      MARANTZ & YAMAHA AV receivers are renowned for their features & flexibility. Most Marantz & Yamaha receivers feature:

1] HDMI video inputs for HD picture quality & simpler, easier connections.  

2] A/B speaker outputs for two rooms with double banana speaker jacks for better sound with quality cables & connectors. The $149 Parasound speaker switcher lets you connect up to 10 speakers throughout your home.

3] Learning remotes that run most any TV, DVD, satellite, cable, etc. Your home theater experience is much more enjoyable with one remote control running everything, rather than fishing between seven different remote controls.

4] Multi-zone; different music can play simultaneously in different rooms.  While you are watching a surround sound DVD in one room, the FM radio, for example, can play in another room. The only things needed are another pair of speakers & the wire to connect them.

5] Preamp outputs for easy upgrades. The receiver becomes a tuner-preamp. If you want more power, you can plug a 200W or 400W / channel amp or whatever power you prefer directly to the receiver. Parasound power amps have deeper bass, more power & better quality power than any receiver. The $949 Parasound A23 has 200W into a 4 ohm load. The $2495 A21 has 250W, 8 ohms & 400W, 4 ohms. This is far greater than any AV receiver.  
   With most other receiver brands, you'd have to replace the receiver to get more power. Preamp outputs are included in most Marantz receivers & some Yamaha receivers.  

6] Video up-conversion to improve video quality. While DVD players can use an HDMI connection, VCR's use a composite video connection. With most receivers, you would have to use the this sort of cable between the receiver & TV, reducing the video quality. Video upconversion enables you to use the highest type of cable, noticeably improving video quality.

7] On-Screen Display enables you to see any changes you make on the remote control or receiver's front panel on your TV screen. This greatly helps when first setting up your system.

8] A Built-in Equalizer automaticly adjusts all the channels when you first set up the receiver. A microphone is included, which you can place at your favorite listening seat.

 HOME THEATER & STEREOPHILE magazines praise PARASOUND's  high performance, high value power amps. The Parasounds have more power & better sound quality than any receiver. Parasound's warranty is 5 years labor & 10 years parts, also far better than any receiver. 

AV PRE & POWER AMPS
Some people need more power & better sound than any receiver can deliver. Preamp processors & power amps have more features, greater flexibility, better bass, smoother sound & vastly more power than any receiver. The Parasound A51 has 250W/channel 8 ohm, 400W,  4 ohm with all channels running. Even the most expensive receivers can't do this. Regarding a $5200 Denon AVR5308CI, HOME THEATER stated, "Don't expect the power & punch that only separate, more powerful amplifiers can provide." 

MARANTZ
MM8003, 8 channel power amp, $2399 "Tested power, one channel, 192W, 8 ohm; 289W, 4 ohm." 

AV8801 Surround Processor, $3,599
(Home Theater, May 2013): Marantz's new top-of-the-line performed so well in reviewer David Vaughn's system, it earned a place as his new reference. 

PARASOUND HALO A51   power amp, EDITOR'S CHOICE  "Powerful & flexible power amp with impressive sound. Excellent value."  HI-FI CHOICE, 
RECOMMENDED

YAMAHA AVENTAGE 
CX-A5001 Surround Processor, $2,498,
(S&V): "The first dedicated preamp/processor for the premium Aventage line delivered up fabulous sound, tank-like build quality, and more features than you can shake a stick at for a quite reasonable price." 

 SPEAKERS

      Most speaker companies buy their parts from a few generic manufacturers & put these in a cabinet. Every speaker we carry is from a company that designs, engineers & manufactures every part in their own factory. The benefits include better sounding, more durable speakers of higher value, since you are not paying for multiple companies' markups. We choose our speakers for superior sound quality & value, not for the biggest ad budget. We've tried over a dozen speaker brands that didn't pass our high standards. Most of these speakers are now available at local competing stores. 
             
      
MONITOR AUDIO has made high-quality speakers for over 30 years. Their woofers & tweeters are made of C-CAM, ceramic-coated aluminum / magnesium originally used for jet engine blades. Sonic benefits include increased efficiency, clarity & reduced distortion. Monitor's Radius line are an attractive, small lifestyle home theater system with metal wall brackets.  
"Stunning; audiophile grade at a consumer friendly price. Remarkable; precision & detail I expect from much larger speakers." HDTV, etc.
"Serious bang for the buck; awesome, innovative design." HOME THEATER
