AVR selection [suggestions desired!]
Hello, I am getting closer to completing my home theatre setup. I recently got a set of Pioneer 5.1 SP-PK52FS speakers that I am pleased with. However, I still need to pair them with an appropriate AVR, so I am seeking a little direction in selecting one.There are so many AVRs to consider it makes my head hurt. I am currently considering the Denon AVR-x2000 (or the cloesly related Denon AVR-e400), but I am unsure of what other good competition there is out there, despite alot of research. I am mainly interested in sound quality. The Denon I mention has 7 driven channels with an honest 90watt rating that I think will be sufficient for these speakers, which do have a 6ohm rating. I have seen others compare several Yamaha AVR's to the Denon, but when I review them, many of the yamahas seems like they have some fudged numbers (the yamaha RX-V675 for example). Either the power rating tests where done driving only 1 or 2 speakers or only driving them at very narrow frequencys. I am unsure how much these types of numbers affect the AVR, since the reviews are all still good. Some direction and any suggestions are very welcomed! I appreciate any input!
