I did turn the volume down a bit but, the three BB playing simultaneously sounded amazing. It covered pretty much all the bass, mid and high pitch notes.

Those Paradigm speakers with Panasonic will ROCK! :rock: :thumbsup:
They sure do! 😎. I must finish this project. Project wich consist in sizing the Paradigm speaker to the Rx-C300 original speaker overall dimensions. Than I will fit the original front grills. They will look original but... with a kick ass sound!

Very nice indeed. Classy sounding, very clear and with decent bass. Goes pretty loud without any distortion. The deck is super clear, well impressed.

Will soon be cranking another one of these. Found a second one in perfect condition from the original 71 years old owner. Volume a little scratchy but that is an easy fix. Very exited cause they sound and look realy good!

Like many early 80's dance classics, this timeless track rates as one of my favourites & the PC-5 loves a good bassline biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif
Headphones/decent speakers mandatory here................
