    Finally did it

    After years of procrastinating, afew weeks ago, I traded in my BL4000's that I bought brand new for a second hand pair of Beolab Penta 2 as front and Beovox Penta as rears connected through an MCL2p to my Avant and BS3000 - the sound is absolutely amazing, I just love it.

    Just wanted to say thanks to Peter for the advice in previous posts and say just say how good these speakers are. In Music mode with my iPod and Speakers 4 the sound is so good - the rears tend to just fill in the bits that are missing. And as an added bonus, I am finding that I don't have to play the music loud to hear everything, in fact the bass is on -3 and it's still enough. Movies are also so much better even though the DVD is a DVD1 and difficult as anything to use!

    Re: Finally did it

    I've had my Penta III speakers for over 15 years, and still love their sound. As much as I would love to own a pair of BeoLab 5s, I don't think they could sound much better in the room where I already have my Pentas.

    Re: Finally did it

    also like the Penta a lot, and I bought a pair of IIIs this spring.

    They are not perfect, though. My main problem is that they don't sound good in my livingroom, but that room IS a diffcult room acoustically. i have tried my Pentas in my bedroom, and they sounded great there so my problem is acoustics and placement-related.

    I'm not saying the Penta is a bad speaker - I like the Penta a lot - but they are quite sensitive to placement and room acoustics, and more so than the other speakers I own. Another potential problem is that the treble is very directional. So why am I complaining in the celebration thread? Well, I just think that avery new Penta owner should be aware of these issues and be careful when placing the Pentas - it you place them right, they will sound much better! :-) Experiment with toe-in, distance to walls, etc etc - it's definitely worth it! It is a great speaker! Welcome to the Penta club! :-)
