I went to Fry's yesterday and listened to the SKF-4800 and Pioneer FS-52. The Onkyo had more bass which is expected with the larger drivers and deeper cabinet. But to me the Pioneers sound better....

Jamo never had much of a presence in the USA even before Klipsch bought them. I think Klipsch acquired them for their distribution channels overseas. Haven't seen any quality Jamos introduced since...

The Pioneer only has a 1 year warranty and they are also getting out of the AV business. I think Onkyo will be purchasing whatever they are selling off.

your Take Classic speakers have a 3" driver, I can see how they'd blow after a while if you put any volume into them.

Upgrading to bookshelf speakers would be a HUGE improvement.

The RX-V575 will not work for your needs. It has Zone B instead of Zone 2. You should look at the Yamaha RX-V675 instead. Or maybe the Denon x2000.

The ratings for the DH550 are 90W x 2 at 6 ohms 20hz-20khz. A 1khz power rating is totally worthless. Plus it cannot be rated for 145W x 7 when it is only a 5 channel receiver!
