The VSX 70 doesn't look bad but it's only 90 watts per channel @ 8 ohms. With, given my speaker setup, is that really enough power?:
L/R - Infinity Beta 50's
Center - Infinity C-351
Sides - Infinity 150's
Rears - Infinity OWS-1's
Room Size: Dedicated Theater Room
1200 cubic feet
The SC-61 is rated at 125 watts per channel @ 8 ohms which I feel more comfortable with but is it worth $100 more than the VSX 70.
Can both receivers have an external amp hooked up to them?
Could use some insight here Thanks guys.
The 1222K is the non elite version of the SC61. No 12 volt trigger, one year less warranty and a few other small things.
Costco had the 1522K for quite a while for $599. Which is the non elite version of the SC65.
