Need recommendation for receiver - for polk Rti-A9
Here is newbie, with a bunch of questions, that I am hoping experts here can help with.
My listening habits are 70% movies, 30% music.
MY current receiver is an Onkyo TX-SR 607.
I just purchased Polk Audio RTI-A9 for fronts (Right or wrong, I liked the way they sounds when I was listening to a bunch of speaker, and get a reasonable deal on them).
I want build my system around this, and need a recommendation for a sub & center channel, and possibly the receiver too.
My receiver is an Onkyo - TX-SR607, before anybody jumps on me, i know RTI-A9 are power hungry, and need a better receiver or separate Amp (607 does not have a pre-pouts ), can I just use something like Emotiva XPA-3 to drive the fronts, and use the Onkyo to drive the rest.
I also have an older, but very faithful HK-80MKII receiver sitting in the basement gathering dust; would that be option to drive the fronts? May be I just need a new receiver, what would be a good match for RTi-A9s.
For center channel - I know they have to be timbre matched based on what the experts say on this for, so my choices are Polk CSI 4 , 5 or 6 ; what is the better choice.?
I know some recommend the same speaker as the front, would another RTI-A9 be an option here ?
Sub - The form seems to overall suggest a sub like - Outlaw or SVS' would they be better choice than the polk subs ( PSW 125 or 110)
