    I was looking at some polk audio speakers, because my dad owns a great pair, which are powered through a marantz model 2325(guess who's inheriting all that sexy equipment), and since I'm a little low on money, I was wondering if I could just buy a pair of R30 floorstanding models, and just add drivers as I get money, or would it just sound like mud?

    Well, what are powering it with? A circa 1980 ghetto blaster? A computer sound card? A hand-cranked radio/flashlight? Or are you meaning to say that you've already inherited the Marantz?

    Yes, I've heard these terms and in addition I've enjoyed them both at meals many times but never together.

    You won't get straight answers out of these guys I'm afraid, they're professionals when it comes to being facetious.

    I can't see how it would sound like mud - I've never heard those speakers myself but they seem like they'd give a decent all-round sound with the potential to add more components later! Why don't you find a similar amp to yours in the shop and try that, or even just take your one in and try it with the speakers?
