Although their now a days AVR got a big transformer in them, in my opinion drivers make a big different in power output, I think they sound more solid, considering external power amplifier is always an option
Because I was planning and getting two Klipsch towers(for music) which I don't known if that's a good idea with their peak power of 400 watts
have anyone try the Pioneer sc1522 with a klipsch tower?
I once heard a Denon AVR1913 playing music on a Klipsch F30 at high volume and it sound pretty good, so I was wondering if that would work for the sc1522?
I think I can get two of them for $200
Well first off, I had bought the Onkyo 818 back last November, and I had a few issues with it, even the 24p bug, even though most of the issues may have been firmware fixed, I totally despised Onkyo's flaky customer service, and the previously known HDMI main board failures, I really wanted to keep it mostly for the Audyssey MultiEQ XT32, I really hated to send it back, but since I was given a 30 day time frame, I returned it, so just two weeks ago, I grabbed one of these 1522's at my local costco.
Currently I'm running 2 sets of Klipsch KG 5.5 towers, one front and one rear, front and rear effects, and 2 klipsch rw-12 powered subs, so let's just say that I have absolutely no issues with having enough bass, and it sounds awesome!!, my kg 5.5's are several years old, so they are not as super high pitched as the RF'7's, but not too far off, for me I'm use to the klipsch towers sound as they do have their own sound, one thing I did notice was how they brought my Klipsch towers back to life !! The 1522 should run your F30's with out any issue, as my Yamaha 2095 was rated at 95 watts/ ch, where my KG 5.5's were rated at 100 watts, 500 watts peak.
It's difficult giving people feedback on how any particular system sounds, I've been using a Yamaha RX-V2095 for almost 10 years, I've been running all my klipsch speakers on this receiver up to 2 weeks ago, and it sounded great for being 10 years old, I only wanted HDMI switching control with using multiple sources with HDMI, so I needed to get something...
