^ Thanks for confirming for me. I appreciate the knowledge as I don't have a lot about M&K.

I use a 7200 to power my MK 300/150 Atmos system. No issues.

Have also used the 5200 to power an MK S150 7.2.4 system at reference all gas long.

I'm a 150 owner (with a 350 sub) and used to power my five speakers with a Denon AVR2809. The system played VERY loud (while around -5 on volume) with no overheating or clipping issues. I've since switched to Marantz separates also without issue. I think you'll be just fine with a 7200

Denon seems to agree.

In any case if you're looking at 2 Channel amps for stereo functionality. An ADCOM 555 / 555 II , Carver A500x , are fairly priced on the used market. NAD 2200PE, 2400, 2600a are also very much up to the task. Other brands to keep watch for B&K, Rotel, Parasound. again if you're looking at "previously owned" units there are several options at all price levels.

I STRONGLY recommend getting a high pass filter ( placed between your pre-amp and amp) choke the sats at 80hz and let the sub handle the rest. M&K had a few variations . If you're using an AV pre-amp or receiver. you can sort out hi/low pass within that unit so no need for a separate passive unit , but if your pre-amp doesn't allow for filtering ( most don't , although Parasound's P5 does and is also a solid DAC) you should find a hi pass filter so that you can properly dial in the S-90's to mate with the V-125 sub.

There isn't much chatter out there on the web about the S-90's but it's a great sounding speaker system. Music, Movies the whole nine yards.
Thanks alot for your input. Just posted over on amp receiver forum for even more input. Thanks again.

Thanks for the help guys on answering about whether my Denon could power M&K's. I now have a S150 5.1 set up that really sings!

I have another question about a set of 4 M&K Sats I picked up off the bay about a week ago. They are listed as CR-500 Satellite Speakers (although the ebay ad listed them as "C-500" speakers. The ad also listed them as Used in good condition. In the fine print (which is my fault at reading failure) the previous owner stated that the speakers worked but he couldn't get enough hi out of them for his liking. He said it could be his player or maybe the tweeters in the speakers.

Sure enough there is most definitely no tweeter activity going on in the 4 speakers. They all sound muffled. I can't find any information on this model of M&K speaker. They seem pretty recent and have the curved metal speaker cover on them. Would anyone know anything about these or about the tweeters in them? Ken Kreisel has been very helpful in the past, but I hate to bug him when I should be able to find the answer through the enthusiast community- especially on products from his former company.

Can you pull one out and post a photo or three, including whatever number is stamped on it?

I'll try to do that unless I can get a return authorized through ebay. I've attached a couple of photos of the speakers. They seem to look somewhat like the 550, but without the THX.
