I have been down this path with these speakers... it is not a good match.
good advice, i think id rather go safe than try to blow things out... literally.
what speakers would you recommend with the AVR2112 that would be powerful enough to take advantage of its capabilities? i know, listening is best, but a couple suggestions would help narrow it down. budget of $800-$1000 total for speakers.
ascend, arx are two ive seen recco'd here. will be adding a sub. would prefer towers in the front; martin logan 10 and polk monitor 70s seem to be going for a decent discount given they are last yrs models.
