I have just ordered my first 3.1 [budget $2500] setup including PSB Image T6, C5 and Outlaw LFM-1 Plus (on sale), Denon AVR-2112ci. I did a lot of research before pulling trigger but overlooked something crucial in the process. One day after ordering I hear back from PSB that the speakers will be fine with a 4-ohm receiver, the Denon is not, of course. So now I'm having buyers remorse about the receiver and looking for an alternative that won't break the bank. Am I right to be concerned? I have found the Onkyo TX-NR809 available at a cost I can justify. Would you make the switch?
Or can you offer recommendations for a receiver that will do the job for <= $700? I want hdmi1.4, ipod and internet connectivity, multi-zone/multi-source, airplay, ...
The local dealer was promoting Pioneer VSX-52/53 and Denon AVR2312/3312 with their PSB's which were out of my price range at the time (and still are I think).
Thanks for your thoughts
