If price was not an issue but purely from an audiophile/technical/sound quality perspective, which option would be the best for my 7.2 home theater setup that includes the Yamaha Aventage 3040 receiver.
2 Triton Seven's + Supercenter XL + 2 Forcefield 5 subs + 2 HTR7000 (rear) + 2 MPX (sides)
(OR)
2 Triton One's + Supercenter XL + 2 HTR7000 (rear) + 2 MPX (sides)

Hi Bignate,
I have not heard the Triton 1s. So my answer will only be a guess.
I love when people start off questions with "if price was not an issue", that for me is like saying "once upon a time". Ha
But I think it is fair to say that integrating subs into a system requires a good surround processor, and good bass management and even then is hard to do. It MIGHT be easier and better because of room nodes and positioning than having the bass come from the front left and right. But that is a big MIGHT!
IMHO, it is much more likely that the subs in the T1s will be MUCH better integrated and will therefore make better music than having separate subs.
My vote would be for the T1s. BUT IF, like me, you really crave deep bass and IF, very UNLIKE me, price is not an issue, then you still might want to have a sub or two in the room, at least for movies.
I am just dreaming here.
Whatever you do, pls let us know, sounds like you will have an awesome system. BUT I would think the Yamaha will quickly become the weak link in your system, I think the GE speakers can use a MUCH better pre-pro and amp setup--speaking in purely audiophile terms. Not denigrating the Yamaha at all, sorry if it sounds like I am.
Happy listening,
God Bless,
Wayne

I get it from the BASS perspective ...can't complain about having more of it. However, I was purely looking at it from a redundancy perspective...see if the T7 combination with FF sub sound better or be equal to T1's by itself without the subs.

Also, I was only looking at the best AV receiver than pursuing a seperates option and hence narrowing the choice to the Aventage 3040. Any specific AVR recommendation that would be an ideal solution to pair up with GE?
