I listen to everything
I especially love acoustic guitar like Eric Clapton / Unplugged, solo cello, chamber music, and female vocals like Emmylou Harris, Shelby Lynn, to Janis Ian
Im dating myself here.
I personally judge a speaker by how real acoustic guitar music sounds, since I know how loud an acoustic guitar is, and how a pretty good acoustic guitar sounds.
My room is pretty big (about 17 x 20) and my speakers are on the long wall. The BE718s have the snap that I like, a big soundstage, and they dont wear me out like some of my other speakers did.
Ive read comments that the Theta Intrepid amp is underrated, so I may have a really good amp and not even realize it (even with it being a five channel). My pre-amp is a Theta Casanova Pre-Pro, and my CD/DVD is a Theta Compli. Speaker Cables and ICs are Kubala Sousa Fascination, and PCs are all Black Sand. When I read the BE718s like power, thats all I needed start wondering what a more powerful amp would do for me. My problem is I dont understand the technical stuff enough to know if a 300 watt amp would be too much for the BE718s when theyre only rated for up to 200 watts.
