Receiver choose for Jamo S426 HC3S? Yes, i searched before i start this thread.

Hello guys. This is my first post in this forum. I am not a forum noob, so i searched what i want before i start this thread.

Anyway, I have been reading the Jamo S426 HC3S is a very good setup. Great for the price and kinda like begineer setup as well.

Just an FYI, amazon is asking for 115.00 prime shipping available now smile.gif

I will be moving in a house and im gonna be living in the basement... size of the area is 19x12.
Current TV is a 32" Sharp with HDMI ports. but i will upgrade it to 40"+ LCD/LED HDTV in the future. TV will be in the middle of the room (against the wall, of course smile.gif)

I am planning to hook my macbook up, so i can listen to the music via these speakers.

I will say its around 80% music 20% movie ratio when using it. Type of musics are mostly Pop,Rock,R&B,Blues,Raggae..occasionally Rap or Bass. I will consider a sub in the future. Maybe a Jamo S210 or depends on what is on sale
My current computer speakers are Logitech X-530 (just as reference?)

For HDMI inputs...

i need at least 2 of them. One for my HP laptop, and i might purchase a blueray DVD player in the future.

I am not an audio enthusiast, so i am not planning to upgrade my speakers or receivers to those 100000000 dollars one.

I do see people get Denon AVR 1911, Onkyo TX-NR 414,TX-NR579,Yamaha HTR-3063,Pioneer VSX-420-K...etc for receivers

I am on a budget for receivers.. cheap and good is what i want. I dont mind refurbished. I know cheap usually is not best..thats why i said good. hahhaha



I was looking at the specs of both receivers and the Jamo...and i found a few. Now, experts please acknowledge me...which is should i get? if they are not good, why are they not good, or not recommend? I really wanna know more, so i dont have to keep starting threads and people will like "Oh god, idiots!"

Bump! All advice are appreciated!

I have the Onkyo TX-NR509 and I'm very happy with it. I used to have it run a Jamo 426 set but I upgraded the speakers as I wasn't completely happy with them for music. For HT use they were great, at least when considering the price. The 509 had no problem running the Jamo set.

I subscribe to the theory that unless something is broken, all amplification is the same, and that you should choose amps and receivers based on features. So, I wholeheartedly recommend the Onkyo 509 if it has what you need smile.gif

I asked and google it. It seems like Onkyo has some sort of problem with power turning on and off or broke down easily?

Right now, im debating between Yamaha RX-V371, V373, and HTR-3063BL. They are powering Jamo S426 for now. Any input is appreciated!

The power in the 371, 373 and 3063 are all the same. Take your pick, they will all work. The 3063 is the same receiver as the 371.

One last question. I heard the jamo is not really good in music but more on the movie side. If i replace a pair of speaker with bookshelves, with that be better? Like Polk R150 for example?
