Sub's for Magenpan 3,7
Nice system K-Rose. You don't need a preamp if you buy REL subs. And connection is really easy.Besides the obvious sound of real sub bass, I look for adjustments in the crossover and high/low outputs at small increments. And being a woodworker, I ...

Looks like the newer model has more continuos watts and potentially longer output when power fails:PP 2000+: 1800 watts continuous / 2340 short term (2 min.) PP 2000: 1400 Watts Continuous, 2000 Watts Short Duration The PP website does not do a go...

Acou Zen vs Anaysis Plus vs Cardas Clear Sp. Cable
Gelaw AP Oval 9 should provide good weight and bass for your long runs. I've auditon all the AP products and would not hesitate to purchase the AP Oval 9. I can tell you from evaluating monitors with 6" drivers that AP cables can improve bass notes.

Ensure they are a matched Quad. 
Add Sub Woofer
REL allows you to use neutrik speakon connector. This has the advantage of ensuring that the REL receives the same signal as the main speakers. But it does not use the power from your amp just the signal. 
Planning to buy new MC275 for Dynaudio Audience 72
Sourav the MC275 should do fine with Audience 72. My current speakers- Helicon 300s -are rated 4 ohm and a single MC275 delivered great bass and midrange with lush sound. For me it was a good match with the right cables in a small listening room. ... 
McIntosh Mc202 or Conrad Johnson MF2300a amp?

REL T1 or T5? apples to oranges?
The REL T5 Won the 2011 Golden Ear Award from The Absolute Sound. The T5 crossover is borrowed from R-Series and uses a custom-made woofer, for 8". Thinking the T5 maybe more for music.
