Hi,

 

I am very new to the speaker game and have little knowledge on how to choose a receiver. I found the Jamo speaker set for 200 on amazon and wanted to pair it with a Denon X1000 receiver. Now the speaker fact sheet tells me that the Long/Short term power capabilities of the speakers are:

Towers: 100/400 W

Center: 80/120 W

Surrounds: 60/100 W

 

Now the Denon receiver says that it can reach a max of 175 watts. But the power output Power Output Per Channel (20Hz-20kHz, 0.08%THD@8ohm) is 80 W. I read somewhere that underpowering a speaker is worse than overpowering it. Is this going to be a problem for me? Are the Long/Short term capabilities the lower limits that the speakers can take? I'm sorry if this seems very stupid but I have very little knowledge on this aspect.

 

Thank you for your help in advance.

 

Cheers.

The X1000 will do just fine with those speakers.

Underpowering would be using something like a 10W or 20W amp. Most any 50W or higher model you might consider to include the X1000 would provide more than enough power to those speakers at average volume levels. Note however, that Jamo setup does not include a sub, so you'll want to purchase a dedicated sub as well to take some of the load off the AVR as well as use the significantly higher sub filter resolution with the Audyssey MultEQ XT on the X1000.
