I am planning to purchase a receiver for Definitive Tech ProCinema 800 speaker system. I do have plans of upgrading to 7.1 sometime later . Each speaker has a different recommended amplifier power as below:
ProMonitor 800 (4 each) - 10 – 150 watts
ProCenter 1000 (1 each) - 10 – 200 watts
ProSub 800 (1 each) - 300 watts
I am seeing receivers which can pass different watts per channel like for example some have 100X5 and some like 90x7.
If i buy a receiver which is passes 90watts per channel output should i assume that i am under utilizing the speaker's capacity?
