I am eager to test this receiver, but for now I don't have the speakers as yet. I was planning to buy a 5.0 Tannoy mercury V1/VR/VC set in a few days - but that was when I still had the RX473. Now I am wondering if I should look for something else.
My room is small (11x10 feet - about 13.5 square metres) and the speakers will be placed very close to the corners, and the surrounds hanged on the side walls, right on the corners. I hope it won't affect the sound much. I plan to buy a subwoofer too in 2 months.
Someone recommended me a 5.0 set from Q Acoustics(2020i and 2010i) - what do you think, I should prefer them?
I can't audition them unfortunatelly - but all I can say is that I dont like the sound to be too harsh/bright.
Which do you think are less bright - the Tannoys or the Q Acoustics?
Also, do you think the Tannoys, being front ported, would let me hear that hissing noise from the ports (especially the rears, which have the bass reduced due to thinner construction?
Do you think I should look at other speakers too for a better match with Yamaha RX-673?
My speaker budget is 500-550 euros. I listen 50/50 to music and movies. I prefer symphonic/jazz but also some rock. I am aware this receiver is no big deal for stereo music, so I will mainly listen to multichannel recordings/movies.
