I suspect the 212htrs will pick up even more. The specs aren't measured the same when reading the specs for both amps, neither give 4ohm info.
I am using 3 x crown xls-1500 for my 212ht (original model) lcr & slanted 8 surrounds. No noise with all the gains set at about 80% max. I use unbalanced rca cables from denon 4311.

Definitely a good deal there. Not to many get such unbalanced success! I would have done the same but the Onkyo 5508 Preamp came about and I went for it. My cables and Neutrik connectors showed up from Parts Express and I wired them up/made them yesterday. One side is Phoenix to input into the Crown DSI amp.

Sounds good, I better pick up some more crowns before the old stock is gone.

I watched it on freaking Amazon Prime and thought the bass and surround effects were really good.
