anyone recommends good receiver for this bundle? I was thinking Marantz SR 6010. Also, do you need subwoofer or the floorstading speakers have enough of low frequency output?

Receivers:
If you already have a 4K TV along with plans to watch HDR & Dolby Vision content then would suggest a 2017 A/V Receiver. I picked up a used/amazon warehouse Yamaha 3060 for about $1300 but you can pick up the same for accessories4less for a little bit more.

Subwoofer - This is really subjective but would say yes, a subwoofer will be necessary especially for movie playback and to really register the lower frequencies.

Dumb question:
I am using Marantz SR 6011 with Klipsch RP-280F (pair) and RP-450C (so 3.0). I tried with and without Audyssey. No matter what I do, the bass is really weak in this setup (even after turning Audyssey off and manual turning the low frequency to the highest level possible in Marantz). The lowest frequency setting in Marantz EQ is only 63 Hz. The sound is very clear and natural, which I like. However the bass is very weak.
Is this normal? I thought that RP-280F has two woofers so I might be okay without a subwoofer. Or am I being unrealistic and the only possible way to get good bass is with a subwoofer? Is it possible that either the receiver or speaker has a defect? I doubt since overall sound is very clear, all I am missing is the bass.

I use it for 90% music.

Appreciate your help and input. Thanks!

What are you listening to?Content is a huge factor on the amount of bass you hear.

You might start a separate thread in the speaker or receiver categories to get more responses.

To save you time, this URL currently goes to:

2 RP280f
2 RP160M
RP440C

$2296, backordered

The original deal is insane, if not somewhat hard to believe it wasn't a typo or something.

That was an incredible deal (as stated almost hard to believe), recently had to go with RP250Fs as nobody would ship either the 260 or 280s to my address and to buy them in Japan. Klipsch is priced crazy expensive over here, a pair of 280s go for like $3500 after conversion to US$.
