I had been eyeing the Onkyo TX-8050 for awhile, and after home theater remodel added rear surrounds I lost zone 2 on my Denon AVR, so it was time to go geeky with my music listening.
I've also been interviewing bookshelf speakers for my rather large living room (25ft loft ceilings). The Polk LSi9s were huge standouts, and although B&W 685 and Paradigm Studio 20 were also contenders, but the refurbished price on the Polk ebay store for the LSi9s convinced me this was the way to go.
The Onkyo supports 4 Ohm speakers at 160 W/ch, but I understand the LSi9's aren't the easiest speakers to drive. I'm guessing this will be a good combination, but having never owned 4 Ohm speakers or an Onkyo receiver I thought I might ask for more expert opinion.
Thanks in advance.
