I have been reading around these forums for a while now and finally got around to making my first post. Cheers to everyone for all of the helpful information so far. I have just recently upgraded my 15yr old home theater speakers and have a few questions about some of the setup. I grabbed a great deal on a new receiver and slightly used speaker system, so here's what I'm working with:
Definitive Technology BP8060ST fronts
Definitive Technology CS8080HD center
Definitive Technology SR8080BP surrounds
and a lingering baby Mirage nanosub - working out a deal for the Deftech Supercube I (or would be open to suggestions in the <$400 range)
I have a few questions about how I'm supposed to connect everything here, so I'll just start by listing off my main questions:
1. I bought the Denon receiver before deciding on this speaker setup - Can the AVR1613 handle these speakers or am I doing them a disservice by not getting a more powerful receiver?
2. Seeing as the BP8060 fronts have integrated 300W subs, do I need a receiver that is either 7.2 or 9.2 to run the LFE connections, or do the standard High Level (red/black) inputs work well enough?
I'm sure I'll have another question or two as I get everything fully connected, but thought I'd start here. Thanks for any and all input here. I hope this is in the correct section, feel free to move it to the appropriate location if not.
