If i just change the fronts sound stage to klipsch should i worry about changing out the other 6 speakers to klipsch as well as im running a 9.2 setup.

Kinda confused to the whole tibre match thing.

The answer is maybe. Research has shown that our ears are less sensitive to differences to sounds not in front of us. I would simply run whatever your roomeq is after you get the Klipsches, and decide for yourself if it works. If not, buy more Klipsches. If it sounds good to you, you're done.

I used to sell Home Theater gear and found that Denon and Klipsch complimented each other well. Because of that, I've used Denon almost exclusively until I bought a Pioneer Elite SC-65 a few years ago for under $400 out the door due to open box/lack of remote/no user manual.

I found that the SC-65 sounds quite good w/the Klipsch speakers as well.

Klipsch has the reputation of being "bright" and Denon has the reputation of being "warm" so they compliment each other quite well.

I've heard the RP line is a lot better now when it comes to brightness. Would the Denon and Pioneer still pair good with them? Which one would you go with if you had to chose one?

What are you saying? I am saying that I have twice the wattage available to power my surrounds and and have not hurt my speakers. I have not had to turn up my speakers a lot to get good sound out of them. Klipsch are efficient and you don't have to turn them up much to get get good sound.

I own Klipsch speakers and I own the Denon X2200w. I think they work well together. My complaint right now has to do with what was promised with the Dolby add-ons but you're not asking about that situation.

Also, people don't have to own something to have an opinion on it. They could have heard the item you're asking about or something considered to be very similar. I personally don't feel receivers differ all that much with sound. I've owned at least 3 different brands.

Projector: Benq W1070 1080p 2D/3D
AVR: Denon X2200W
Mains: Klipsch RF-62ii x 2
Center: Klipsch RC-62ii
Surrounds: Klipsch RS-42ii x 4
Subs: Dual Hsu VTF-15H's

It was just a joke that apparently didn't land.
