Let me start by saying, very nice receiver. However, your HTIB speakers have got to go. If they are 3 ohm speakers you could damage your receiver. Besides, it would be like putting a ribbon on a turd (no offense). If you are going to invest that much in a receiver you might as well go all the way and get some decent speakers. Check out Craigslist, just stay away from any "white van" speaker sets. And from what I saw on that receiver, its time to buy a powered sub. Keep us posted, I'd love to see what you put together in the end.
