He's just kidding with you...I would set all of your speakers to small and set a crossover between 60 to 80 Hz.

I would try your RC-3 center channel with the RF-82IIs and make sure you make sure they are level-matched to each other...If not you can get the RC-62II later but I bet the RC-3 will work fine.

I have no experience with those AVRs but the Pioneer is rated to drive 4 Ohm speakers and I am not sure (don't think) the Denon you are looking at is, although the Denon X7200 is.

If the X5200 is...

It may not make a difference in your situation but I don't think the X5200 is rated to drive 4 Ohm speakers whereas the AVR-4520ci is.

I am sure the Denon AVR-4520ci would be up to the task and if you can find one should be greatly discounted given it's discontinued (I purchased my AVR-4311ci when it was discontinued that way). I...

Fwiw, the RC-64II was voice-matched to the RF-7IIs trying to obtain the RC-7's performance--The RC-62II is similar to the older RC-3.

Yes, plus you would want to keep the front soundstage voice-matched. Also keep in mind the size of the considered speakers--The RC-64II is huge compared to the RC-62II.

Of course, we are speaking about pre-Atmos (and other...
