kenyer Posted November 1, 2019 Report Share Posted November 1, 2019 Thank you peoples of the AR 90 new owner topic who gave some great advice and had sharp eyes. I just typed out a paragraph for the past 45 min and just to lose it when I logged in, but to stay out of somebody's topic my questions are this on the AR 90's I am looking at from Denver's CL. Having sold off, all at once, a basement full of vintage audio gear I'd rather not bring anything else home that will maybe cause some speakers I already have to be taken out of play and stored. Will the AR 90's be a game changer? The Kappa 8's are currently my favorite speaker and I light them up with a pair of Denon POA 4400 mono blocks (160 watts each) through a BAT VK32se pre amp that creates such a musicality it makes my eyes tear up at times. I also have a pair of Onkyo M 504 amps in stereo at 165 watts each and Acurus L 10 solid state pre amp. Other than that I have two integrated amps that could be used with great results. A Kenwood 600 Supreme ( dual power supplies) and Pioneer SA 9900. Two different personalities but the 600 Supreme is the sweetest sounding amp/component I have while the SA 9900 has the Pioneer house sound in that it's warm. Sooo, would the AR 90's fit in well as mains in a A/V set up? Like maybe as mains with the Monitor Audio Silver RS 1's as rears and Anthem AVM 50 pre/pro and Adcom GFA 7500 5 ch amp at 150 watts per with no bridging allowed. Or are they mainly going to shine with 2 channel music. Are the 90's sensitive to different cables? Do I have amps good enough to get the best out of them or would I need something else? Are there any crossover mods that would put the AR 90's in a class several rungs up the ladder? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
