So i have two cerwin vega ve-15's 400 watts each and are at 8 ohms
I am looking to press these hard, on a tight buget looking for under $400
100+ watts per channel
heres the ones I found for under $400 with all components used: give me your opinions and reviews and any suggestions please!
- Yamaha RX V667 (old version)
- Denon AVR-3805 ( my personal favorite please review this one if any)
- Denon AVR -3803
- Denon AVR-5700 ( could someone give me a review of this one)
- Marantz sr-6003
- denon avr-2809CL (this one too please)
be critical and honest please! thanks
It has preouts, 4 HDMI inputs, etc.
If you prefer a HDMI receiver then the AVR 3805, 3803 and 5700 wont work for you. That leaves you down to the RX-V667, Marantz 6003 and Denon 2809. Take your pick.
Those Cerwin Vegas have a 95db sensitivity so they should not be too difficult to drive by any of these receivers.
Published power specs on receivers are meaningless. They tell you NOTHING about the sound quality when driving SPEAKERS.
An 8 ohm resistor is used for a load (2 channels only) when getting numbers for publication, and any amp can pass that test with low distortion; but it don't mean anything.
Driving a real SPEAKER is 100 times as hard, and that's when all amplifiers distort a LOT more.
A NAD T748 will sound way better than anything from Yamaha or Denon; less distortion.
