Oh yes! If you could find a way to lower the profile of the chassis, that'd be the perfect center channel option! Or, better yet, 3 of them for the front 3 speakers!

James..
For either a Magnepan 3.6 or 3.7i or... maybe 20.7..
Would a pair of Bryston 7B3
or.. a 14B3 be better.
with no consideration for location, or two powercords..
(though if a six inch speaker cable pair with the 7's vs a five foot pair for the 14.. matters??)

I currently own the Bryston 4BSST² and Magnepan 3.6
With some fantasies of upgrading..

So the question is 14B3 or pair of 7B3 ???

My main love is HF definition, midrange clarity, no interest in 'big' bass. good bass definition though is fine.

Hi Elizabeth

7B's for sure - there are really too advantages - short speaker cables (makes a difference) and more power supply capacitance (double what the 14B has) for those transients on the Maggies.

Have you seen the new Magnepan 30's?

Hi Elizabeth,

Just recently I went through the same decision you did.  A single 14B3 vs. a pair of 7B3.  At the end of the day I went with the pair of 7B3 for the following reasons:

1) Each 7B3 has twice the capacitance relative to a single channel of the 14B3 which provides better stability into high current loads.
2) The 14B3 is heavy to lift (90+ lbs) while each 7B3 weighs 55 lbs.  I can easily lift 55 lbs, but 90+ lbs is too much to move and position. 

Good luck with your decision.  You can not go wrong either way.

John

$30,000 for the 30.7 is both the 20.7 and the 7B3 with spare change..!  And the four part speakers would be hard to squeeze into my apartment!

And thanks for the advice on the 7B3 vs 14B3.

HI

I had Tympani 4A's a while back and they were terrific - but you need a BIG room and a BIG budget  :green:
