I have also done a little bit of movie watching at reasonable volumes and seen no issues either. I would have to chalk that up to the AVR or some type of bad wiring.
Thanks for yours above.
The post with your speaker set-up and encountering Y's protective shut-downs was on the rx-v 765 thread, not the 667 thread as I had said.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...2#post20606632
From your description, you kept things sane by "cranking" a bit on 2-channels only. Sounds doable even with your monsters. I think that the above referenced OP went for all 7 speakers.
I don't think that there is any normal priced modern AVR that could feed anywhere near what is needed to push such a collection of 7 speakers to SPL's approaching reference.
The more I learn about the 867
, the more I'm tempted to finagle the sale of my 765 and add a little for the two big knobs.
