Hi Guys,

Im planning on buying the ONKYO TX-NR414 as I found it to be a pretty impressive receiver for it's price. The problem is I don't know which type of speakers I can buy. I'm planning to buy separate speakers, as I already have 2 sansui tower speakers and 2 sony surround speakers for surround. Both sets running at 8 ohms. My problem is the center and sub woofer selection.

More info on the receiver can be found here:
http://www.eu.onkyo.com/en/products/tx-nr414-75913.html

According to these receiver amp specifications:

Front L/R 80 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz,0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC) 110 W + 110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9%,2 channels driven, FTC)
Center 80 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz,0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC) 110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
Surround L/R 80 W + 80 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC)110 W + 110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9%,
Dynamic Power 180 W (3 ohms, 1 ch) 160 W (4 ohms, 1 ch) 100 W (8 ohms, 1 ch) THD+N (Total Harmonic Distortion + Noise)
Damping Factor 60 (Front, 1 kHz, 8 ohms)
Input Sensitivity and Impedance 200 mV/47 k-ohms (Line)
Output Level and Impedance 200 mV/2.2 k-ohms (Rec out)
Frequency Response 20 Hz-50 kHz/+1 dB, -3 dB (DSP bypass)
Tone Control ±10 dB, 50 Hz (Bass) ±10 dB, 20 kHz (Treble)
Signal-to-Noise Ratio 100 dB (Line, IHF-A)
Speaker Impedance 6 ohms–16 ohms

I understand that my current speakers are compatible since they are 8 ohms and within the wattage specifications.

Now I found this neat center speaker which is marked at 4 - 8 ohms:

First of all, does anybody suggest any better speaker than this? Second, will it be compatible with the center channel of the amp without damaging it?

I haven't looked for any sub woofers yet. Can anybody suggest a good one for this amp?


Any help would be appreciated and thanks!

fwiw, the problem i see is that the center channel should have the same timbre match with the front lr speakers. so if you can get the same model series center channel for the sanuai towers that you own that would be great if they have one. if not i would just get the onkyo reciever and run the system with a phantom center and as for a sub what is your budget and where do you reside as i can tell your not from the u.s

i'm so laid back,i'm laid out
