I'm looking at a very similar setup (but 7.1) for my 15 x 25 x 9 ft. HT room. I will be doing 70% movies and sports and 30% music. It is also an enclosed basement - so I don't need to worry about neighbors.
If the Yamaha 661 may be lacking in power, what amplification would be recommended for the 6 ohm 7.1 system?
I'm also looking at the a7s450 as a sub. It comes in 550w and 1300w and has the option of an EQ. Which option for power would be advisable and do I need an EQ?
Thanks for your guidance!
From all I've read, don't even hesitate to get the 1300W for a paltry $85.!!
Oh yeah, I forgot... dump the Yamaha and buy an Onkyo 905 (or, if money's an issue, the 805). You will not regret it.
