I am not sure of the differences between the PV10b and the PV12L but I didn't like the 10B with my VK200. It was too dark and laid back for my tastes. If the 12 is more transparent then it would be a decent fit but of course this is my 2 cents. My speakers are Tyler Acoustics so I am not sure how they match up with the Maggies.
Update and thank you.
I was getting a bad vibe from the seller of the BAT. I did however find a CJ MF2100 here on GON. So I think the pair should do well. From what I understand the trio should work well. Now on to cables and source (till I go through this all again). Any additional comments are mst welcome.
My suggestion would be to have Bob Backert at RHB Sound Dezign modify your PV-12. Stock, it has a good sound but the soundstage is flat, flat, flat, like there's just a wall you're hearing slightly behind the speakers. Bob's mods cause a huge leap forward in depth, dimensionality and imaging. And the tone and dynamics will improve as well. This is true with his circuit mods AND his power supply mods. The dynamics end up being just unbelievable.
Just my 2 cents.
