Oh, I didn't think each side was still on the cards. Two inches shy in total or per side? The 340's are 1.5 inches narrower than the stumpy 170's. I'd always prefer a speaker you can get closer to...

Hi Sean.

Don't overlook the JTR Single 8HT (http://jtrspeakers.com/home-audio/single-8ht/) and Single 8HT-LP (http://jtrspeakers.com/home-audio/single-8ht-lp/) (low profile).

The Denon AVR-X2000 is good unit. You should make the purchase of a new AVR much later if/when it's really needed. The last thing you want is a large outlay on...

Typically 8ft or 2.4m ceilings, so 60m^3 or 2150ft^3... a medium sized room. A single SVS PB2000 will be quite adequate.

OK, my mistake. It's apparent that Processor In is expecting source level signals not pre-amp level. What does your manual say about Source Direct mode? Does it bypass the PM-68's preamp section? ...

What makes you think that? Your AR 312 HO's are spec'd at 97dB(1W/1m?) sensitivity and therefore will play very loud with only 10 - 20W input. It's a myth that big drivers need amps with high rated...
